A New Pumpkin
Yesterday, my daughter came over and brought a pumpkin she had knitted for me.
I think it is the cutest thing with leaves even. I am so proud of it. She never ceases to
amaze me. She has three babies and yet she can find time to knit a pumpkin for me.
I found out something about photography this morning. I am in the middle of my monthly migraine and when they happen no matter what I do I cannot get my pictures to turn out. I can't keep the camera still. The last time this happened I thought I was just imagining it, but this morning after trying and trying I gave up and just put it down to the pain in my head keeps me from being creative.
Another thing I have noticed is that when my husband is out of town, I have no desire to be creative. I turn into a boring ole lump. So when the best half of my body is gone, the part that is me that is left is just boring, uncreative, and very quiet. My mind doesn't even work very well.
I also have this sick feeling in my stomach because he isn't here.
He just called, and said he thinks he might get to come home this evening. That is good news.
One of my favorite verses that has always delivered me from my fears is from Isaiah 46:11
"I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will do it."
He has always done it too.
It still is Thankful Thursday.
