Sweet Blessings Recounted for Friday’s Fave Five
My week is FULL of blessings. Below are some of the atypical ones.
1. June 17th. I felt great (emotionally) last week. June 17th did not bring even a twinge of grief. This is the 2nd year that June 17th felt like a normal day. Wahoo! In a perfect world we would have been married 29 years. (Instead married 20 years and divorced for 9.)
2. Address book. I am going through my hardbound address book and writing letters (on paper with a pen!) to all in my book. I am reminded of how many people have blessed me with their advice, kind actions, friendship, and prayers. Go here to read more about my Address Book Project.
3. Church. I went to church for the first time since April 16th (when I broke my shoulder). It was great to see everyone, worship and listen to the sermon in person. I love my church! Go here for 5 Reasons why!
4. No Nervousness. I was asked to make some announcements in church on Sunday. And for the first time EVER I wasn’t nervous talking from the pulpit. I even felt comfortable enough to share my bad and good news. Bad news: I am progressing s-l-o-w-l-y in physical therapy and I am not able to play the piano. Good news: I have never been able to play the piano. Silly I know but HUGE for me.
5. Small Group. Our 66 Love Letters small group started back up on Wednesday. We have 4 new ladies! We split the 21 ladies into two groups. I am grateful to Lynette for being the facilitator for group 2. I loved facilitating group 1. I have missed the ladies and the material. Another praise – the book just came out in paperback, so the new ladies were able to pay a discounted price!
