A pretty sky and smooth lake this morning with just a touch of mist rising up.
This time last Friday, we were at the hospital waiting ... waiting ... waiting. And finally, the surgery was over and thankful, so thankful that all went well. DH looks pretty good and had a sort of a smile after. Thanks be to God who has seen us through many things and I know He will continue to in the future.
Our week has been about recovery and rest and on Tuesday night, I made the decision to NOT watch the TV and apparently, I missed all the good excitement. But my sleep was sweet and I knew that the morning would bring news of a winner and we would deal with that when the time came. It breaks my heart that people cannot accept what has happened. While I sympathize with those who grieve, they are selfish and vindictive in their grief causing pain and trouble to others. May we all work together for the good of everyone and pray for peace in our land and wisdom for our leaders and for our law enforcement officers.
Our weather has been off and on and these periwinkles seemed to spring up out of what a couple of weeks ago was just a pot of dirt. Surprise, surprise! In spite of the heavy rains all week, there apparently was enough sun for this hibiscus to put on a bloom.
My sister sent this news clipping to me of the obituary for the man who was our pastor during my teen years. Count me among the "scores of friends and many thankful children of God who experienced God's love and grace through Pastor George E. Smith." He was a wonderful man who had a heart for teens and I am thankful that he was there for me during those tender times.
The past two weekends we have entrusted our little Trudy to a doggie day care boarding place. It gives me great relief to know that she has become a favorite there and sleeps peacefully in her bed behind the front desk with the manager. Their website has a web cam which enables me to see at any time what Trudy is doing.
Thanks to my Dad, my uncles, cousins, nephews and every person who has served in our military selflessly. I am so proud to know they were and are willing to serve so we might live in freedom and peace.
With our hearts filled with gratitude and eyes filled with tears, we thank all you brave men and women who sacrificed so much, so that we could have a better life and a country to call home. Thank you so much. Happy Veteran’s day.
