|10:43 pm - Ways I have been blessed lately|
No reason for this post, really, I'm just feeling grateful and wanting to make a happy post.
I'm not going to use any names, although some of these are about specific people. If you think one is you, it probably is. :-)
My class of Stephen Ministers is wonderful; I feel energized and uplifted every time I come home from teaching.
I finally got a check from unemployment after weeks of struggle.
A friend gave me money, twice, over the past month to help me pay bills. God bless you!
So did my parents, even though I still owe them for my car.
I have smart friends, and it's really fun to listen to them talk.
Connie Willis is my new favorite author. I'm so glad I've had the time to read Doomsday Book, Bellwether, and Passage recently.
My bank was bought out instead of failing, yay!
I got a call from a friend early this evening, who wanted to see how I was doing. Bless her.
I watched the sun set into the Pacific ocean this weekend, and dolphins came and splashed in the waves right nearby. I haven't seen anything that beautiful in a long time. A wonderful evening.
MY SHOWS ARE BACK! :-)
I didn't have to cancel my pre-order for Numb3rs season 4, because the unemployment monies came.
I think I may be in love. (Timing's off, but that doesn't make it untrue. And I am good at waiting.)
God is good, even when I'm depressed and anxious and uncertain of everything. And he apparently trusts me when I don't, which, I'm not sure how that's working for him *g* but it's encouraging.
"The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing." Isaiah 51:3
Current Mood: grateful
I'm so glad you are feeling the blessings. You're so taken care of, lovely. I need to remember this for myself as I am potentially entering a weird time too (wierder?)...
HUGS. And I SOOOOO wish I could just pick up a phone and call you whenever.
I'm not sure where this sudden gratitude came from! I don't think it was a conscious choice, but it's kind of nice. I'm trying not to wait for the other shoe to drop. *g*
*prays for you*
*hugs* God bless. Seeing you this happy and hopeful makes me happy.
Aw, I'm glad. It kind of surprised me; I shall have to try and stay focused on these things, on God, and see if it lasts.
I'm glad things are looking up!
How are you doing? Email me, I don't have much time for calls today, but I bet I could write back to you later in the day.
Heheheheh. My sympathies to you. *hugs*

Hooray for happypost! :-)
I'm so glad the ministry thing is starting to nourish you as much as you are nourishing it. It's brilliant when that happens, and it's one of those things that makes it easier to believe that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing.
I got dolphins, too, this weekend! It was a weekend of dolphins in honor of me reading Deep Wizardry. (What, it totally was!)
YAY FOR SHOWS BEING BACK!!!!1
Also: Long live Connie Willis!!

Me too. :-) Not all of the ministry, but at least this one major part. Feels good.
I got dolphins, too, this weekend!
Real ones, or in the book? *curious*
Real ones, at the beach where we were visiting with Bill's extended family. A few jumped all the way out of the water, it was awesome.
