This past week has been rather ordinary – no big story to share, I’m afraid. However, this does not mean that I still can’t find reasons for biblical gratitude! I just need to dig a little deeper than usual to find them:
🔸I took my car in for its 95,000 mile checkup, and it’s still driving well! The service consultant also blessed me with $40 off of the bill, which was a nice surprise!
🔸I got to take part and witness God working an extraordinary miracle in the life of one of my friends! This is the one I mentioned some time ago – her husband passed away in December, and she became a first-time mom (as a widow) in February. Despite my friend’s sorrows, there is no denying the Lord’s miraculous care and provision for her – often done in surprising and unexpected ways!
🔸Also, my friend’s little baby is too cute for words, and is also very low-key and calm! I’m not usually good with babies, but this one was fine – quiet and content. 🙂
🔸As I approach the home stretch of a certification that I’ve been pursuing, I had the opportunity to do some teaching (three different classes – just fifteen minutes or so each time, and then a separate full-length class). The good news is that things are going well, and God has granted me favor with one of the master teachers (she’s also turning into a mentor of mine). I still have some time to go, but I am making meaningful progress and am enjoying the experience of mastering a new skill.
🔸 A dear friend of mine was visiting from Australia, and it was so wonderful to see her again! (It had been about a year between visits) It felt like no time had passed at all, and I realized that – despite the geographical distance – we are still experiencing similar issues.
That’s it for today! Have a wonderful week. ☑️
