ll Corinthians 12: 7-8
Then I read this: It's a mercy of God that He says no to many of our prayers because He loves us, and He knows that the prayer we're praying would lead to disaster."
It was good that God said No to me. It gave me back my vision of being thankful again in all things. It showed me the little things that I had been taking for granted. He showed me how to stop, slow down and gave me eyes to see all of the blessings. You see I had gotten myself to a place where I was complaining more than I was praising.
Last week, I took time to sit and hook a rug while my soon to be married daughter to knitted. We drank tea, and coffee and listened to music. We both knew we had things to go do, but knowing that after a week at jury duty and things didn't get done but the world didn't stop spinning. So we made time. Next Christmas she will be in her own house, doing her own things so gone will be this time we shared this week.
I have always longed to be as Mary was when she was told she would be the mother of the Son of God.
" I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. " May it be to me as you have said."
" Luke 1:38"
I wish someday, I could have that kind of faith.
Have a great Friday too,
