What a wonderful day we had today.
We were blessed to go to church today. Even though we left late, we (by the miracle of a heavy foot) arrived on time. The message was encouraging - faint hearts vs hearts that are tuned to God. God works in the trials that He sends to us...there is a purpose for every single trial, and the God who sends the trials works in them for our good and His glory!
The people of our little church were an encouragement, too, asking about my husband and his personal struggles. It was so good to know that they love us and pray for us, and miss us when we aren't there.
We went shopping for groceries on the way home, then popped in to see Matt and Joanna. They are in the middle of major renovations! In no time at all, their kitchen will be beautiful. It's slow going at the moment, but they are working hard, and by Christmas they should be enjoying the fruit of their labour.
We arrived home to a lovely supper cooked by Heather, who was waiting at our home to tell us all about her new horse.
Not long after, Rick arrived home with tales of his day on the road.
What made it a beautiful day? Family, friends, and the deep-seated knowledge that we walk with God, moment by moment, day by day.
A beautiful day, indeed.
