It's 2:22 AM - I know I should be sleeping, and I will in a few minutes. I actually already had a few hours of sleep (slept while reading to my daughter) but I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't snooze back. I will make my Ovaltine drink shortly and will go back to bed. But for now I just want to post some of my thankfulness. I say some because there really are many that I am thankful for, but I need to go back to bed so I will just mention a few:
I am thankful for the Women's Bible Study going on at Hope Chapel every Tuesday. It is being led by these wonderful godly women of God, and it is such a blessing to be able to learn from them. Last Tuesday night, Jill shared her story about her being a wife who loves, adores, reveres and serves her husband Chris, and I was teary eyed most of the time she was sharing. There is such a graciousness in her that I love. I actually cried when she prayed for us at the end of her sharing. The main topic was "submission" and it was such a hard one for me to hear at this time in my life. That is quite ironic because I am naturally a submissive person - a non confrontational, non-assertive, pleaser type of gal. But if you're a regular reader of this blog you would know that there's one area in our marriage right now that's causing me to resist submission and be stubborn. I will talk more about that struggle and how the Lord is working on my heart - but for now I just want to be thankful for these woman leaders who are leading this study. Lord, continue to bless them and their families.
Well.. I think I'd stick with that one for now. Like what I said, I have lots to be thankful for but I need to go back to bed. Good Night. Sweet Dreams.....
