Wrapping up the week!
My bro-in-law and future nephew-in-law both have December birthdays and on Sunday the family is gathering here for a birthday dinner after church. Lasagna! Have I told you about my giant lasagna pan? Oh law! It's a big 'un! I use 2 boxes of lasagna pasta, 5 pounds of meat, 2 large spag sauces, 2 large ricotta, 2 large mozzarella to create one Grande lasagna! My mom will supply the bread and salad and Amy will bring the cake and ice cream. Love love love family gatherings. Amy's daughter Sarah and Tim (the birthday boy) will be getting married after Christmas and their sweet baby boy Mason is the first of the next generation to join us. Wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now...life is good around here.
Well, I'd better get a move on. Need to assemble that fruit salad and make myself presentable. One of the goals my boss has given me is to "unplug" from work worries. She keeps reminding me that I have a blackberry, they can reach me if they need me. Yeah yeah yeah...I'm workin' on it. So today is an opportunity to start working on that goal. I bickered a bit about having our meeting out of the hospital and was informed by my team that this is just exactly what I need! Thank the Lord for co workers who care about me and who are Believers in Christ; they speak wisdom into my life when I need it most. And I'm very excited to tell them that last night I slept for six hours straight with no meds! That's quite a feat for me...do I hear applause? I guess God's not done working on me...and thank goodness for it.
Have a blessed day today, and know that there is a blessing waiting for you. I pray that God shows you all that is good and perfect in your life in the hours ahead and that you will see that the perfection we long for lies within us in the person of Jesus.
