The beach has always been my calming place.
Yesterday Ben, Rachel and I went to a volunteer luncheon at PHCA. Ben put in lots of hours with basketball. The food is always amazing! They also give us so many coupons and prizes. I got a Longaberger basket with an insert, a huge mug, a pound of coffee and a coupon for soup at a place called Zoup.
We also got several more coupons inside a thank you card. We got a small flower pot painted white with a bag of Hershey Kisses. We also got a card that looked like a seed packet, with a seed packet inside. We also got a large plastic mug with the school logo and a bag with the school logo which we can use for groceries. Here's a picture of only some of what we received. I'm feeling so grateful.
Check out this stinkin' cute garbage can! It is a reward Stampin' Up demonstrators can order. Two come in a set. They store flat and stay in place with an elastic band.
Life has been very stressful with some siblings of late. It's hard to believe that they would do what they did in secret. It's hard to believe we all grew up in the same house with the same parents. I have been hurt deeply and need to pray to forgive. That doesn't mean I agree with what they have done. It means I have to forgive them, because God forgives me. I need to do this to become a healthier me. If you are one who prays, please pray for healing for my family. Please pray for me as I walk forward through the days and weeks that follow. I can't act on impulse and emotionally. I have to do things the way God calls me to do them, not what my earthly response tells me.
This song spoke to me today. Some days I know God has directed which song I choose to put here.
Blessing of the Day: I have no more obligations today so I can spend time with Tim and God.
Thanks for your prayers and for stopping by.
