On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

We enjoyed a wonderful time this past week in Branson with a group from Freedom Church. I love Branson. We saw so many great shows and every one of them always pays tribute to our veterans and the military who fight for our freedom to enjoy our lives in this country. They also acknowledge the true freedom we have in Christ and I love that the entertainment there honors our King in such a beautiful way in this special season!! Made new friends, too! (Our pic has a green cast to it because of the lights on the bus 😝 .)

And since we’ve been home, all I’ve done is run here and there. Jack wanted to spend the night so that was fun and, of course, he wanted to go to the park and shopping. 

Today (Monday) I’m running around taking DH to the dentist, to breakfast, taking Annie over to the Petsitters again so we can go to Oklahoma tomorrow for Thanksgiving, to the grocery store, the gas station, discount tires, good grief! It never ends! And on top of that, a crown fell out on Friday evening! Why do these things I ask, always happen on Friday? And a Friday before a holiday week? So, I am blessed that my dentist is having mercy on me and hopefully, the crown will be back in my mouth again this afternoon. 

You probably thought I meant my 👑! I did lose my crown when I had that little fit this morning with paper jams in the printer. Ah well, I’m still thankful in everything I’m giving thanks and praying the forecast changes as I don’t want to be driving in the rain. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s been a few years since we’ve been to Branson! I’m hoping we can go next year and see the Christmas shows!
Safe travel to Oklahoma! Hope you found your crown!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.....

I lost a crown on Friday too! Cemented it back in myself temporarily.
Have a safe trip to Oklahoma. Happy Thanksgiving.

Sounds like a good time in Branson. Also fun having Jack spend the night. Sorry about all the things that have gone wrong lately. That's how I've been feeling. Can't there be a week when nothing happens to stress me out. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving in Oklahoma.

I've never been to Branson, but now I want to go more than ever. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Branson is on my bucket list! I lost a filling and hope I can make it to January when I have an appointment. So far, so good. Enjoy your holiday!!

You are funny two months ago a crown came out on my left side- last week my right side - he charges me $40 to put them back in - but he was not the one who did them some 40? years ago.
Jack is cute.
I wish I could go to Branson and I am glad your hubs got to go.

You read my mind about the crown but I knew it wasn't possible, so went back to the intended meaning. We are headed to Dallas tomorrow in the rain and trust your weather will improve between now and then. Be safe! Have a blessed Giving Thanks Day.

I didn't get to read this when you wrote it, but am reading it now, knowing that your DH is in heaven already. But as I read about your trip and all the things going on just a week or so ago, I am thinking, your lives together were full of joy and family and friends and love right up to the end. That is a blessing in so many ways. I know things were difficult too, you don't mention that, but yet you persevered and kept going. You are a real testimony to me and to many. May the Lord continue to keep you going, one day at a time, one step at a time. He is with you.
