Sunday Thoughts

"He has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation." - Colossians 1:22

I am so thrilled...I was able to go to church last night after not being able to go since Christmas!! It was so wonderful being back with my church family and worshiping our Lord together! It was like heaven...and I just know this is what it will be like in heaven when we are standing before the throne of God worshiping Him - face to face!!

I got to see one of my dearest friends and give her a big hug! She is so dear to me and it's been a long time since I've seen her.  We're hoping to get together soon.  She has asked to come to my home and visit me, but I've been dragging my feet because since my injury, my house has been less than spotless!! Quite a bit less.  Now, I know that she wouldn't care about that, but my PRIDE got in the way and I just was letting this hold me back.  So, I'm hoping to have her over and I will ask her to forgive the mess, the dust, the dust bunnies, etc., etc.  LOL 

I also got to see three of my other friends I haven't seen since forever and it was just so special to see them again.  My husband said that I seemed so much more joyous since we went to church and I said that's because that's how I feel.  Getting to be with my fellowship just really brightened my outlook on life and lightened my Spirit!!

I'm just praying that I continue to heal and that I'm able to get back to my church functions again.  Although, my hubby is urging me not to start in too fast or do too much and I KNOW he is right and I will listen to his wisdom and be submissive to his wisdom. 

Today, hubby and I went to the grocery store (another thing I haven't been able to do) and I used a little motorized cart which really helped.  We got our few things, then got gas in my anyone else out there as outraged as I am by the price of gas?!! It was terrible how much it cost me to fill up my little Toyota!! (Okay, stepping down from my soap box now...)  We then went and picked up our mail and then went home.  I worked on my Bible study which is really amazing! We are working on Revelation at this point in the study and I'm telling you, I am awestruck at our Lord and all that will transpire!  Such a wonderful's by Beth Moore and it's called "Beloved Disciple".  It's about the Disciple John and it's so good.  If you ever get a chance to do this study, do! It is really good!

I made my family dinner tonight - BBQ chicken wings, Baked Beans and a Green Salad.  They really enjoyed it, but I'm exhausted now.  I'll have to do a tutorial on my chicken wings.  They are really good and something I came up with on my own.  Our favorite wing place went out of business - plus it was SO expensive - so I decided to come up with my own wings that we would really love and I did!!  However, it's a lot of work and I'm really, really tired tonight.  I think this is what hubby is talking about - not over-doing. :) I MUST listen to him!!

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sunday!!

God bless you - Julie

  1. Hooray for you, going to church and shopping! Yes, gas is terrible. I certainly keep my goings to local and not driving around for fun. I am praying that you will have less and less pain. Jenn
