Prayers, Gabi Sees Yoda, and I’m Hibernating…
I was having a hard time deciding what to write about today.
Obviously you can see I decided not to choose, but rather to go with all three subjects.
A serious subject, a fun subject and a couch with your favorite blanket and old movies kind of day subject.
First, in all seriousness…
I feel like I could start a whole new blog called: Prayer Chain for our World.
I’m not so sure that maybe it isn’t something I should do.
Each of my last few posts has asked for prayer…
Prayers for little 6-year-old Carena.
Prayers for the families of the deceased and injured from Boston’s explosions.
Prayers for our World.
Literally including everyone.
And now we have West, Texas…
Another horrific event which has claimed so many lives and homes in a small community.
We’ll just keep praying, because that’s all we can do at this point isn’t it?
There are times of feeling helpless and that’s when we fall to our knees, fold our hands, or jump up to sing out a prayer…send out good vibes…or talk to whatever power you believe in – holding up incredible faith and hope for as good of an outcome as possible for these people…that they feel peace and faith in their hearts too…and comfort in knowing their loved one is with their God.
On to a funny moment:
Tim did the dishes the other day and had left a sink of water and bubbles left behind.
Gabi called me into the kitchen saying “Look Mom – it’s Yoda”!
I get up to see what she’s talking about and sure enough there he is…
To which I replied…
“Sure, some people see Jesus in things…my daughter sees Yoda.”
And to the final topic of the day…
I’m hibernating…no two hour trip to the Dr’s office for this girl today (one way):
Look at this picture of our Christmas tree – which yes, is still sitting out on our deck.
I’m sorry, I just had to leave it out there – it’s been so pretty each evening when the lights turn on!
Tim and I just talked a few days ago about how we really need to take it down as it’s getting so dried out and turning brown…
And then the snow hit once again…
The snow you see on it is just from today (it was bare this morning) and we’re supposed to be getting another 10 inches yet tonight.
And so for today and tonight, I’m hibernating…
and watching the Christmas movies I dvr’d to watch during my recovery, with the lights twinkling on my Christmas tree outside – it is rather pretty isn’t it?
Yup…lemonade out of lemons.
And hey – I’m almost done watching the Christmas movies I had taped…
Maybe that will trigger Spring to finally arrive!
