It has been a long time since I posted and as I think of all that I have to be thankful for I cannot help but think of this past weekend.  Our church went to Woodland Christian Camp and spent the weekend, we had a great time of family,friends, food, fellowship and fun.  We really got to show the love of God by loving on and serving each other.  I am so proud that my Grandma, who is 83 got to go with us this year, she has gone many times in the past but was unable to go last year and we really weren’t sure if she’d be able to go this year because lately she hasn’t been her “spunky, fiesty” self. I saw a work of God through her this past weekend because the previous weekend and during the week she was tired and wore out but there she was able to fish, fellowship and enjoy the love of those around her.  I remember at one point thinking “this is hard,” trying to make sure that she was having a good time and trying to keep her from getting hurt but thankfully I quickly heard the Holy Spirit telling me that these were precious memories that I would have to treasure.  On Saturday afternoon, we went down to the lake and she fished with our youngest son Pierce and she has so much fun showing him the fish and helping him “catch” one.  On Sunday morning, before we had our church service I came back into my room from running to take some of our things home and found her sweeping our room.  I told her I was going to do that when I got back and she told me that she had it and “to be quiet and get out of there.” She told me that she was going to get our room, her room and the bathroom that we shared.  I said okay and told her I would be glad to help but realized she was more like herself. A few minutes later, when church service was starting she came walking in without her cane or walker and said “I heard the music and didn’t want to be late.”

I am so thankful that God loves us all so much and shows us that with Him all things are possible and we can do all things through Jesus who strengthens us.  Lately, I have been doing some self evaluation and have realized that there is a lot that needs to be changed but I am so thankful to know that not only will God show me what needs to change but also how to change it. 

Blessings to all of you!
