Thankful Thursday: Strength and Courage


This week I am grateful for the following blessings from the Lord:
  • The charge to Joshua as he faced the initial conquest of Canaan, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9 NIV
  • Physical strength for making preparations for house guests this weekend. My sister and brother-in-law are coming from their home in Florida to see my mother. Also my aunt is coming from New York to offer her support in taking care of my mother and to help with clearing my mother's senior citizen apartment, located about 50 miles south of where I live.
  • Having written lists to help me face the stress of having to work in two separate locations – at my home and also at the apartment.
  • Being able to rise above fatigue to continue with meal planning and grocery shopping.
  • Looking forward to visiting with loved ones I haven’t seen for quite some time.
  • Planning for an Afternoon Tea as requested by my sister.

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you,
so that in all things at all times,
having all that you need,
you will abound in every good work."
2 Cor. 9:8

thanks for the wonderful quote, it's really hard to joggle important stuff.
and it's always important to keep Him in charge at all times.
Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend with your relatives.
kisses to your mom!
