A Walk in the Sunshine

When I awoke this morning, I saw a mixture of clouds, fog and sunshine outside.  Knowing that the fog might take over any minute, I grabbed a slice of brown bread, and gouda cheese and  took a long stroll through the beautiful countryside.  As I walked in a valley, my cell phone rang.  It was Sherrylee!  Because the reception was terrible, I rushed to the top of the hill just in time to get her 2nd phone call. They are returning a day early so they can be with me at Dan’s memorial service in North Richland Hills!  It was very symbolic because I was indeed in the dark valley when she called, but after talking with her, my spirits were joyful and at peace.

I can tell I am improving because I worked in the flower garden today for the first time in the six months I’ve been here.  I love being outdoors and especially working in the soil, helping things grow, clearing out the tired, brown leaves, whatever there is to do that helps the yard have opportunity to show off God’s handiwork.

I did sort through the pile of medical statements from hospitals, emergency rooms, and insurance companies.  That was nerve wracking.  Afterwards, I had a cup of tea AND read in a novel just for the pleasure of “doing nothing.”  I have actually finished one book in the last 6 months.  Saturday, our son will help me look at the bills and mixed up statements, decide what actually needs to be paid.  And, it’s bill paying time.  So, even though I do not enjoy accounting, it has to be done.

God will get us through this time.  He has promised to provide all that we need.  We need Him. — Anne

 

Thursday the Pacific was wild, crashing loudly on the shore.

Can you see the colorful flowers peeking out from the tall grass?  This reminds me of Romania.
