Happy Easter! Thank you Jesus! The miracle of your love and grace is something I pray I never forget. Today was a blessing. I got to hear Your word and sing Your praises in the morning. I got to take a neighbor with a slightly broken heart out for lunch. My children got to spend the day with their dad. I pray they were able to share a bit of the Truth with him in their own sweet ways. I got to watch a movie at home in peace. I got a sweet picture sent to me from the man I have loved for nearly 10 years. It was a quiet day but a nice one. My husband was in Louisiana. He went to church with his Aunt and spent the day with a friend.
While it was really a nice day, there was one moment, when I hadn't heard from him when I thought I should have, I wondered...What is he doing? I thought for one little bit, hmmm, wonder where's he at and what is he up to? I suppose that is not in itself a big deal but I didn't like the feeling it left me with. Doubt with at little side of fear. I reminded myself that I cannot control anyone and to stay in my own wonderful day. I told satan to get behind me. I will look to my Savior for strength. He is in control and will help me handle whatever comes.
My husband did come visit me last weekend and stayed for a night in the spare room. He went with us to church and then took us bowling. It was fun, sweet, simple and wonderful. It made me miss him more but I was so able to savor the greatness of the day. We have made plans for Memorial Day weekend. I am so looking forward to it.
I am grateful and richly blessed. I am forgiven and saved. I am loved and the daughter of a King. I am undeserving of His love but he loves me anyways. I am one of His favorite children and so are you! I pray you KNOW that.
