Blessings to share...

Over the past several months, I've had the chance for reflection...and lots of it. There are so many things I am capable of doing...but the events last fall totally shook my confidence. I am beginning to rebuild my life, slowly, but deliberately. It's time to try to reengage in things we did as a couple and find mysel a place as just one. One...very blessed one. Later today, I will begin my trip to Nashville that I have wanted to take for months, but scheduling was another matter. But, because of that, I have the unique opportunity to take some much needed supplies to some flood victims, in particular, to families at a school where my niece teaches. These families were hit hard and are struggling to rebuild their lives. There's a similarity there to my life...and I believe God guided me to do this to remind me there are many hurting people in this country! I collected some things on my own, and later this morning, I will head to Fort Worth Christian School to pick up some things they have collected there. My prayer for my trip is that I can be the hands and feet of Jesus to someone there. On a brighter note, I will be getting some much needed sister time with my older sister, Donna, and her family. Blessings to share...sure, lots of them, but the blessings I share will pale in comparison to the ones I will receive. I'll post pictures along the way. Please pray for safe travel for me...and don't forget to pray for the people of Middle Tennessee...blessings...

Thank you so much for keeping us all posted on your journey to the "front lines" in Tennessee. There are so many people there who will see Christ's light in you; you have a servant's heart and people respond to that in times of tragedy. I pray that you will be able to show others that times of sadness and grief are just part of the spiritual warfare that is going on around us, and that there is hope and joy always in our Lord! Thinking of you!
