This week I’m praising God:
1). For the opportunity to teach English as a second language to adults this fall, something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
2). Every summer my daughter spends a week or two with my mom. I’m thrilled that she still loves to do this, is having fun, and is enjoying it with a minimal amount of pain.
3). Most summers my husband works a part-time job. This summer he’s working full-time. I am married to the hardest working person on the planet, and I’m so grateful for his strong work ethic and commitment to knocking out some of our last remaining medical debts.
4). You may or may not know this, but dairy is not my friend. On the rare occasions that I indulge in it, I regret it. I am blessed beyond measure for my friend who has spent time and money experimenting in an effort to find me a suitable alternative. Thank you Carol!
5). I love watching my kids have success. Last night Nick hit a triple hopefully pulling him out of his hitting slump. As trivial as it may sound, I am praising God for this because it’s hard to watch him struggle.
6). For the reminder this week that the world is our mission field, not our enemy.
7). Also, for the reminder that though God’s holiness demands wickedness be punished, He does not delight in the death of the wicked. Ezekiel 18:23
