God has blessed me and my family in many ways over the past few weeks. Katie and Lindsey got to spend 4 days together in NC over Easter. Hilary has found a new apartment with friends and some leads on full-time work compared to two part-time jobs. Katie is in the final stretch of the semester and will head to Europe in 3 weeks. Lindsey is in her final leg of her 3rd year teaching. John has been able to spend 5 days with his family in CT and I have a contract for next year at school.
God has been teaching me to wait on Him and listen to His voice. Last weekend I had Dustin on my mind, so I started praying for him. On Monday, as I headed to work, I called John using my hands-free bluetooth (which I love and my daughters hate). When it said, “Please say a command”, I said, “Call John”. The next thing it said was, “Did you say call Dustin Buchanan?”!!! WHAT?!? Those names aren’t even close! So, I knew I was to keep praying for Dustin. I called him the next day to let him know and it was so good to talk with him. Do you remember my post about the email I received? See, I learned and remember to pass along the blessing of praying for someone else.
Later tonight we will celebrate my father-in-laws 79th birthday with all of John’s family. That is another blessing. Today has been a day to just “hang out” and relax – I guess God knew I needed that. I actually spent some time playing with photos in PSE 6. I don’t usually allow myself the “luxury” of playing with photos (you know – too much scrapbooking to get caught up on to learn something new…). Here are a few photos I applied light and/or texture to; I like the effects.
Enjoy your weekend and rest in the loving peace Jesus gives.
