Even though we were unable to spend time with our families for Thanksgiving, we had a wonderful day nonetheless, with lots of food, fun, and happy memories.
The picture above is my first handmade Christmas decoration. I had the opportunity to go to a paint party with my Ladies Bible Study from the Chapel. So fun! :)
How was your Thanksgiving?
Prayer Request Stuff:
Me - (Praise) I am really enjoying my new job, which God provided at the perfect time so that I could move away from my last job, which was extremely stressful.
Me - Please pray for my dad, who had some unexpected health issues last week. Also, please pray for my family as they travel and minister.
Heidi R. - My brother in law needs prayers for the blood clots stuck in his lungs.
Kathy A. - I have been notified by my doctor I had an abnormal mammogram. Praying for peace and discernment during the coming days.
Sharon T. - My husband & I have been missionaries for 15+ years - please pray for God's favor regarding our support - our last paychecks were $1,100 short - thanks so much!
Joan A. - Please pray for my 13 year old granddaughter with iritis.
Sandra P. - My daughter-in-law is fighting cancer. Her name is Chris. Please pray for healing for her and a peace for her and my son about God's will for their lives.
Becky I. - Please pray for my family.
Thank you for your prayers, my friends. Sometimes when we feel helpless, it's the most important thing we can do. Thank you for lifting each other and myself up in prayer.
I've been using the Bible app on my iPhone to read to me during the day, usually during housework or other tasks. This month, I've listened to the last half of 1st Timothy and most of 1st Kings. I'm also halfway through the devotional book "Children of the Day" by Beth Moore.
How about you? What have you been reading?
