Works of God Weekend

by adustyframe ~ August 31st, 2008

Well, it’s still the weekend in the US. Happy Labor Day to you all.

I’ve had a lot of blessings this week. I just didn’t get my post up.

My father in law turned 80 yesterday. We had a family picnic this afternoon. We gathered at a park at the edge of a lake and sat and visited. The children enjoyed swimming and running with their cousins.

I enjoyed seeing my husband’s family all together. I missed Lee and felt strange being there without him. Because of his rules, he went first for a little while and then James and I came later after he left. That part was hard and felt odd, but that’s the way things are right now.

Lee’s parents have been a tremendous blessing to me and I’m thankful for Pa’s health and long life.

I sat next to one of my sister in laws. She lives around the corner from us but we rarely see her. She has known Lee far longer than I have. I think she’s been married to Lee’s brother for 23 years. We talked about some of the craziness of our lives right now and about some of her craziness.

When we talked about some of the hard things we’re dealing with right now, I said, “But one thing is certain. Lee has changed so much.”

She said, “He really has. He’s a different man. He still talks my ear off like always but he’s very different.”

That blessed my heart! Just to know that I’m not the only one who sees the changes God has made in my husband.

A friend of mine dropped off a huge bag of clothes for James the other day. When I sorted them tonight, I couldn’t help but think how blessed I am. He’s pretty much all set for winter and next summer too.

Lee and I got to go on a romantic date. (I mean we dressed up and everything!) Thanks to the generosity of a friend, we ate at a very nice restaurant. It has literally been years since we were able to do something so “normal”. It was a very special evening.

That about wraps it up for me this week. Thank you to those who participated. (It’s not too late by the way).

    What a lovely weekend for you and your family.
    My family was similarly blessed this weekend when we gathered to celebrate my husband’s great aunt’s 90th birthday. She is a lovely lady full of wisdom and love for all who meet her.

    Sounds like you had a nice weekend too!
