There is something quite moving about meeting with God at the start of a new week...gets my head in the right space & helps me focus on what is ahead. And what is ahead this week is another week with kids & getting back into a work frame-of-mind. Don't know if D will be up to working or not. Hmmmm, poor guy.
His BMT anniversary passed us all by...we sat at the dinner table as a family last night & realised that it was FOUR years since his transplant! How wonderful to have him here with us...so grateful! The kids have loved hanging out with him so much this week!!
Hooray for a God who loves & helps us through such horror, for holidays, friendships, family & each other. For work, for food to eat & a house to live in - keeping us warm on these cold winter nights. For gifts we can use & share. For being able to do hard things & growing having experienced them. For music, for art, for good films, for books, for freedom here in Australia, for education...
We are blessed.
I don't want to take any of this for granted because I know that life is so short...
