Return to your rest, my soul,
   for the LORD has been good to you.
 For you, LORD, have delivered me from death,
   my eyes from tears,
   my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before the LORD
   in the land of the living.
Psalm 116:7-9

Right to the core of my being.  That is where these words went.
It is as if I have been living in a cloud the last few weeks.  Going through the motions, but not living the life.
Doing my job, but not enjoying my work.
Cleaning the house (sometimes), but not enjoying the privilege.
Taking a walk, but not being thankful for my feet.
Going the life, but not seeing my mission.
The Lord has been good to me.  VERY GOOD.  Yes, I miss home and I am tired.
But I am blessed to be in this place, at this time of my life.
And I need to get back to counting and writing down!
676. for a friends invitation to a special Advent service.
677. for my journey.
678. Andy home this year.
679. a husband’s patience.

691. time off work.
692. chance to go back and visit friends.
693. courage to try and call the place I now live “home.”
694. special surprises.
695. using the Internet for His glory.
696. new friends.
697. anticipating blessings.
698. sleep.
699. chance to share.
700. pressing on.

Thank you, Lord, for reminding me that I am OK.  That things are going to be OK.  For your blessings that number more than the droplets of sea spray.

What are you thankful for this week?  Joining the Gratitude Community at Ann’s place.
