It's late and I should be in bed but I wanted to write one more post before my surgery tomorrow. Actually, I'm not that tired and my mind is thinking of many things. Daughters calling, one coming from out of town and another one making dinner. A son who is hovering at home when he could be elsewhere. The wagons are circling. Hugs from mothers and a sister's concern. More calls from a brother, dependable, along with his wife, my other sister. And then there are the friends; glorious treasures of God's grace who wait, hoping to serve because that's what they do when the wagons circle. I am extremely grateful this night to think of the army of saints that holds us up with their prayers. Others have come alongside because you have asked them to. They also have become partakers in this golden cord of prayer.
And then there is my favorite, my husband, who is always watching and caring. He is a wagon master himself in how he plans and directs the rest of us. This man that I love is strong, yet tender when it comes to the heart and his Savior. I know that I am blessed beyond many for I experience his graces daily.
So my last thought tonight is one of overwhelming gratitude. I know that all good gifts come from the Father above and He is generous in His blessings. As I lay my head down tonight it will be with praise to the God who is my helper, the upholder of my life (Psalm 54:4) and who gives peace (Psalm 4:8).
I understand that tomorrow will be hard but I don't count it any harder than what many of you experience in your own lives. It is one more day to face and by God's grace He will supply what is needed.
I am thankful ~
