Counting my blessings!

To make the most of your conversations, think before you talk.

I took this quote from E-Word.....you can link to it from Biblegateway.com. Every day they have a quote from a sermon and I particularly like this one as it applies to me!

If only!

You see, I am prone to talk first and think two days later. Then I whomp my self on the head and wish I had kept my big mouth shut!

This is not in reference to anything I've said recently, although I'm sure I have said SOMETHING that I shouldn't have said or that I should have kept to myself. I've often said that if I said everything I was thinking, no one would ever speak to me again! I am always thinking!

If you haven't see this, run over to Gigi's and watch this video. I promise it's cute, short and will bless your heart!

Other things that lightened my heart this week.....

Number 1 son........finished Phase 1 of Drug Court.....this is so much bigger than I can put into words. THIS IS BIG, HUGE, A SURE SIGN THAT GOD NEVER FAILS TO ANSWER PRAYER. Just not when and how we think He will. But after all, He is God!

Number 2 son.............worked all week! This is big too, because with all the cut backs and the slow work a day world, his job has been awfully slow lately. Another answer to prayer.

Number 3 son.....even though he lost his job due to more cut backs.....he missed the first two cuts....he has already sent out lots of resumes and we are certain and sure that God has a job for him. Also my DIL is working so that is a big relief! We know an answer to this prayer will come.

Number 4 son...............finished another round of rotations for pharmacy school and is home for a week before returning to school. He's less than a year from graduating.

Big, big thanks to my sister and her husband for taking him in and making him so welcome and comfortable that he convinced them to buy not one but two new t.v.s! :) Hey, he was just doing his part to bring you guys up to par with technology!




Did I steal this picture off my sister's facebook? YES! But isn't it a good picture?

This nephew got into a new brace and is much more comfortable! Although his injury put a huge dent into his summer fun!


I could go on and on with the blessings of the past week! When I started typing, I thought what did happen this week???? Nothing quite like counting your blessings!

Oh, I feel your pain with the blog post. I never know what happened to make whatever happened happen!

Such blessings! I'm so thrilled that good news is running rampant at your house! Praise the Lord!
