736. My Bible Study on Daniel has been so exciting for me. I have learned so much and I am so thankful for the opportunity to study it.

737. I teach two separate small groups of women. One on Thursdays  and one on Fridays. I can’t imagine anything better than meeting with these girls! God has blessed me over and over again with these women pouring into me. I am so very thankful for all of them.

738. I love teaching Bible Studies. When Randy died I told my Pastor Bob that I wanted to be a widow who taught Bible Studies all the time. I am so grateful I have the opportunity to do this for a season.

I have no idea what God has for my future but for now, teaching is what my heart yearns for and He has given my heart what it needs at this time.

739. Of course, the best part of teaching is the learning on my part. The bonus’ which are plentiful include the fellowship with these women, being able to share with one another God’s Word. – then applying it to my life!

Thankful for Guests

733. I am so thankful for Friends that come to visit.

734. I am also thankful for days that I have to myself!!

735. I am grateful that I have extra bedrooms with beds for people – friends and family who are able to come for a few days.

I always say – if God has given me the space to have guests – then I need to honor Him and have guests!

The Weather

I live in Kansas! What’s not to love about the weather! The same in Oklahoma. I love the seasons. When I lived in Jamaica I thought I would love having one season! A tropical season!! But I really missed having four seasons. I am always amazed at the beauty God creates in every season!

729. Spring:  Daffodils
730. Summer: summer

731. Fall: fall

732. Winter: winter

Then it begins again and I love them all!

16 months ago

I haven’t blogged regularly for 16 months.
It was 16 months ago that my dear husband died.
But I do realize that I have much to be grateful for.

725.  I am so very thankful that when Randy died, he didn’t feel any pain. That had been his prayer for many years after watching his Father, Mother,  Brother, and wife all die from cancer.

726. I am VERY VERY thankful that I can know that Randy went to heaven! and to be honest, I’m a bit jealous he is there without me!!

727. I am very thankful for family and friends who have given me encouragement and support.

728. My church family have stepped up and been exactly what God knew I would need during this time!
