What He Calls Me To, He Will Lead Me Through

I am so happy for the cool, crisp days we have been having! It's almost cold sleeping at night with the windows open and I love it! Autumn is my favorite time of year and it just rejuvenates me! 

I'm so thankful for this weather because I've been home with my painful foot and this weather just calms me and helps me to think of the upcoming holidays. I do love the holidays and the family time. I love planning for the holidays and making presents and things to decorate my home. 

I've been working on this project for my oldest son

It's his Christmas stocking! It's going to have Santa in a Fireman's uniform and don't you love the doggie? I also love the holly leaves and berries on the top, too. I love doing felt kits and this one has been especially fun.

I did have a pity party on Wednesday. Lots of tears and feeling sorry for myself - asking God why I have been going through all this pain for so long. Why at my relatively young age of 51, I'm like a little, old lady. This lasted until bedtime when I finally did what I should have done in the first place. Prayed. I praised God for all my blessings, I thanked Him that I can still do so many things, I thanked Him for my family and on and on. Amazing how that changed my attitude. I also thought about why God would be allowing this in my life. I know that He has a purpose in all things and I know that He will get our attention and bring us back into His will when we are out of it. I've had some revelations, and now, I need to be obedient. 

Pain is a cruel taskmaster but I know, with God's help, that I can still do things that will glorify Him. What He calls me to, He will lead me through. 

Blessings - Julie

  1. THAT is the right attitude Julie! I know. I find myself checking the old attitude often. It is hard to be in such pain at young ages. I know. Praying for you.
