In the midst of all that is going on I feel like the past few days I have been in one of those ruts... I think everyone spends some time there occasionally and I don't think it is necessarily a bad place to be but more of a bad place to stay. Its a great place to be if it brings you to your knees and back to the Lord!
Last week we found out that my pastor has a brain tumor (read more about it here). He had a doctor appointment on Tuesday that went well and is scheduled for surgery on Friday. Updates can be found here. This is terrible, sad news for anyone but especially our pastor who has done so much for the body of Christ. Dallas Morning News has also put out an article. This has created an outpouring of prayer from all over the world from literally thousands of people which is totally amazing! Join with us in praying!
On top of that yesterday I found out that my sisters kitty was killed in some sort of a fight outside. Terrible news.
There are also some other things going on with K's job and the holidays coming up that we are in need of many prayers for.
It just seems like so many negative things are happening to people all around the world. It has managed to get me a little down.
Putting all of this aside, I think it so neat that this morning God would waken me to a beautiful gift, a surprise, of a beautiful First-snow-of-the-year (esp in TX where it never snows!) that immediately boosted my spirit and I felt instantly renewed. I LOVE the little gifts that God gives us, they are the greatest!
Home Sweet Home... :) Its all starting to melt...
(Nevermind that just a couple of hours later one would never know that it had snowed ha. The streets are dry and the grass is green again. Oh well- they are calling for more on Friday- Yippee!)
