A special thank you to all of the veterans who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe and free. This was the first Veterans Day I didn't get to say a thank you to my Daddy, but his reward this year is bigger than any thank you I could have given him. November 11 was also my baby boy's 26th birthday. It hardly seems possible!
Life continues to be busy, and some days I wonder just what I actually accomplished! We have been in full swing at the Veranda, trying to get our fundraiser/dinner show organized (see previous post), while trying to maintain the everyday goings-on....a common plight for most of us. I am still traveling on occasion with the NMDP, having the honor of transporting life-saving marrow and cells to patients. Are there ever enough hours in the day?
Through all of the busy-ness of the upcoming holiday seasons, our focus needs to be on Christ. Stress will come at us, while trying to "do it all". Prioritize, and take time every day to begin your day with quiet moments with God. You'll find that everything else tends to fall into place when we allow God to be in control. He doesn't promise that our lives will be smooth; but He promises that He will always be with us, no matter the circumstances......and there is no circumstance that will befall us that He has not already made a provsion for. That's the most comforting thought I can think of on this rainy, chilly Monday!
No matter our political views; no matter our crowded lifestyles; no matter what illness or financial catastrophe may come our way.......God loves us. He cares about every detail of our lives. He has made a way, even when we can't see it. And...good news!... He holds us lovingly and gently
In His Grip!
