We had a quiet family Sunday today. After church, we all went to eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant and then we went home to spend most of the day watching football.
This evening, before church, Tyler, Daisy, Maddie and I went to go visit Ms. Charlsie. Maddie was so sweet meeting Charlsie. She even shook her hand.
While we were there, Maddie (who is pretty good with an iPhone) “borrowed” my phone and went a little crazy making pictures. Here are a couple that she took…
In church tonight Steve reminded us, by way of Joseph’s trials (Genesis 40-41), that God can turn seemingly hopeless situations into incredible stories of victory. I’m so thankful today for the way He works in our lives and for knowing that He is always there for us, even when it seems impossible. I see Him at work in my life even as I type and my heart is filled with joy and it strengthens my faith.
I’m reminded almost constantly of late that there are so many around me who are going through difficult times and if I were to pray for all the needs that I was aware of I would be in a constant state of prayer. But, God has been prompting me to be more purposeful in reaching out to show others that I truly care and to pray for someone when I tell them I will.
I read this post by my sweet friend, Micaela, this week and it has been on my heart ever since. If you have a heart to pray for others, I’d encourage you to read it. It will bless your heart. We can make a difference in someone’s life with the simple act of prayer.
