I leave in an hour to go speak in Xenia, O. I think I’m ready. God has really been calming my heart (after a few meltdowns).
Please pray for some very basic things–that I don’t cough while I’m speaking, that I won’t have the uncontrollable urge to spit (sorry), that I won’t get light-headed and/or all sweaty (seems to be the norm lately) while I’m talking. Also, that I will have strength for the long drive (I get wiped out so easily.)
On a more spiritual note, please pray that I can focus on what I need to say, that these women’s hearts will be open to ways they can honor and bless their husbands, that I’ll be fun and funny and that God will fill me with His Holy Spirit and speak right through me to these sweet women.
Bless her heart, Janelle is coming to stay with Gabe and the girls while I’m gone. They’ve been crying about me leaving (I’ve been crying too actually), and fun with Grandma might make things easier. The school nurse called and had us come pick Livi up from school yesterday, so I took her in after lunch today. Ava has been fine, just a little extra tired when she gets home.
I went grocery shopping this afternoon. It feels so good to have real food in the cupboards, supper in the crockpot, and some real meals planned for when I get home. Still feels like we have so far to go before we’re normal (no comments please), but we’re getting there.
Thank you, Lord, for sustaining me. Help me bring honor and glory to You tonight and tomorrow morning.
Hugs, friends! Happy Early Weekend!
