I had a great time with friends in Kentucky. A good Thanksgiving too, I only had one brief moment where I wanted to burst out crying, I was able to hold it together though. I think that was pretty good! To prove that you never know when things are going to hit you, the moment was during the prayer before dinner. Go figure. My best friend is from a large family also, so being with them is a lot of fun, they kept me busy and my mind off of my situation. They gave me a brand new Bible, it was one of the best gifts that they could have given me, it was so sweet of them. It was nice to escape for a bit, all the while being encouraged by great friends! Thanks to the fam in Kentucky!!!
I returned on Saturday to a beautiful day, which changed drastically today. We are expecting snow/sleet/ice in west Texas tomorrow. Which means that if it does happen, the whole town will shut down because they don't have the equipment to keep the roads clear. I find that funny being from Wisconsin where people still travel even if there is a blizzard. :)
At work this afternoon, we decorated the children's building for Christmas. I didn't think I would be able to handle it, but I did! I don't think I'm ready to decorate my own house, but at least it was a step in a good direction. I'm also considering finding my Christmas music. I enjoyed listening to it today while decorating, so maybe I should pull it out. We'll see though.
Well that's a little about what is going on this week. I'm still leaning heavily on the Lord. He is my source of strength, and the reason that I'm able to get up in the morning a make it through the day. His mercies are new every morning! I'm praying that "He will continue to fill my mouth with laughter" (which I do quite often), but more importantly "fill my lips with shouts of joy". Job 8:21
