Yeah baby! It's Friday and that means it's God Stop Friday!! Thank you sweet Patty for hosting this. I absolutely love reading how God is at work in everyone's lives.
Well....here are a few things that have been sweet and personal for me this week.
I have never lived in a house that had pretty flowers already there.....I mean, I'll plant things in pots for the Spring and Summer, but we've never had anything in the ground already that bloomed something....just the usual shrubs and bushes and things....So, we moved into this house in the dead of winter so we had no idea what these brown dead things would become in the Spring....and, look what we have now....HOLY COW....she is beautiful and I could stare at her all day long!!
Don't ask me what it is bc I don't know. My guess is that she's a rose bush of some kind bc of the thorny things on the branches and leaves. No...I don't have much knowledge in the area of horticulture....I just know what I like and don't like...and does it live in sun or shade! :)
Ok, another thing that happened for me this week......the Lord told me over and over again to CHANGE MY ATTITUDE in an area of life that can get me so bloomin frustrated! And, who other than your 7 yr old to teach you the concept of a good attitude. You can find that post below.
Also, the Lord has been teaching me the importance of taking care of this body of mine. It is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I need to be better at taking care of it. If you want the name of a CD teaching from our beloved, Beth Moore, I'll email you the name of it. She taught on this subject a few years ago at a conference in Las Vegas and it is OUTSTANDING!
Finally, I got to sleep in a very small twin bed last night in the room with one of my boys. One of the kids was gone on an overnight field trip and the other one WOULD NOT sleep without the other one there. How sweet is that?? So, I had the joy of going to bed at 8:30 with a darling little boy who tickled me to death once it was time to go to sleep.
He said "I love you mom" at least 10 times. He tossed and turned and tried desperately to get comfy. I snuggled right in and had no problem with that. He made some hilarious noises that I don't know what they were or where they came from!
A truly sweet time to be with him at night, but to also lay in that "empty" bed and pray for that son who was gone.
Hope you have a great weekend. Watch and listen for God. He's everywhere and in all things!
Hugs and blessings~
