Blessings to You!

A profitable meeting at DVR (Division of Vocational Rehabilitation) regarding possible job training opportunities. A lovely dinner gathering with great friends around a table of yummy food. And an enjoyable time at church handbell practice, during which I met two goals: have fun, and be “okay” with making mistakes.

Yesterday was a good day! And I have a lot to be grateful for. 🙂

Thank you to anyone who has sent prayers and/or positive thoughts my way. They are much appreciated! And I would just ask that you would continue to pray that I would remain grateful and hopeful during the difficult times, as well.

Blessings to you! ❤

A Heartfelt Thank You

My Loving Heavenly Father,

Thank you so much for encouraging me today. Yesterday pretty much sucked; but today gave me hope!

I got an answer that I had been waiting for. It was a yes. 🙂

I got some help that I was looking for. I pray that it will propel me forward.

And all I can say is, with all of my heart:


Thank you that I now have hope that things are going to be okay.

Please renew this sense of hope each morning, along with Your endless mercy and grace.

I love you!

Your Adoring Daughter,


The Blessing of Family

My Mother helping me to get prepared on my wedding day! 🙂

I’m so grateful for my family! Yesterday afternoon my Mom drove an hour from her home to mine, just to visit me and to help me with several projects around the house.

We went shopping for necessary items, and then came back to my home to get to work. My Mom helped me to organize the cabinets in my kitchen and bathroom. We were able to consolidate things by discarding outdated items, so we could make our living space more usable.

I don’t know what I would do without my family. My parents, brother, and grandmother (along with the rest of my family) are such a blessing to me. Also, my husband’s family has been there for us more times than I can count. Without them I don’t know where we would be–truly!

I really believe that one of the biggest ways that God has been providing for us is through our families. When we think we’ve hit rock bottom, they are there with just the right help and support that we need.

Thank you, Precious Father! Thank You for the support and love of our family and friends. Thank you for not leaving us to live this life on our own. You have given us, first and foremost, Yourself. But You have also, in Your great mercy and kindness, seen our need for human love and companionship. You have not left us helpless. You have been–and always will be–our Faithful Helper…One on whom we can fully depend.
