It's almost 12 midnight. I just got done doing the display board for Tech Quest Maui. It's basically a science camp project that Cassie (my friend) and I are involved with (since our kids are so into these - science, robotics, legos, etc.). I could have finished it earlier (the kids were helping me, especially G) - but being the perfectionist that I am, I couldn't help but try to make it nicer than plain - therefore I added borders on every photo - and yes that took time. Anyway, as much as I need sleep, I know I will not be able to sleep right away (body ready to sleep, mind very much awake full of ideas and thoughts) so I thought I'd do a Thankful Thursday post.
* I am thankful for my husband. Yes, we disagree on things, but in the very core of our heart and soul, we are one. He is on a missions right now, in the Philippines, with other Men of Hope, and he is having a great time ministering to the Filipinos, especially the kids. I am thankful that God is using him there to minister and is also using this time to minister to B (my hubby). B said he's been reading the Bible more, and learning to listen again. The "learning to listen" again is very touching to me. You know, when my husband and I were on a dating stage, we prayed a lot for God to confirm and let us know if we were really for each other. We listened and God confirmed it to us in a very clear way - no room for doubt. It was pretty amazing how God lead us to read a bible passage (story of Isaac and Rebecca), and how God confirmed in our hearts that those were the verses for us. But after 15 years of marriage, it gradually changes - I mean we don't agree on some major issues and it gets complicated. To make the long story short, before hubby went to the missions last week, we had a huge argument in the car (yes on his way to the airport) - and I was getting very very frustrated that we are not hearing the same thing from God regarding family (particularly finances). But now, we're ok...
Well... this post is supposed to be a "bullet list" of things I am thankful about and it seems it's turning into a post on marriage again... The long and the short of it - we are doing well (long distance relationship - back where we started...).
So much for the bullet list of what I am thankful for. I think I'd start and end with I am thankful for my husband. That alone is a major blessing. (Prayer Request - Please pray for healing of his knee - for the pain and discomfort to go away - thank you).
