I've been reading a few blogs and have been humbled. There are others going through trials far greater than my tree/house struggles yet they have a positive attitude and post a list of blessings in their posts.
My thinking needs to change to more positive. I need to focus on my blessings rather than on all the things that have gone wrong since returning to Mississippi.
We are blessed with so many friends and good neighbors who have helped us. God has placed us in a network of church family and friends that arise to help and bless others when there is a need.
I am thankful that Loren arrived safely back from Arizona, and he has no more conferences until 2008. I am thankful for the 4 blessings that God has placed in our safekeeping, to nurture and bring up in the love and knowledge of God. They are sweet and loving and I am so proud of them.
From the Beverly Lewis website, something I just read and had to add.
Scripture of the Month
"Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 'I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.'" —John 15:4 niv
Bev's Reflection:When friends disappoint, when pastors fall, when a son or daughter abandons you—there is Jesus. He is the only Constant to cling to, when the rug of life is pulled out from under you. Your Friend and Savior longs for you to connect with Him—in praise during the good and bad days, in prayer, and in reading Scripture, which has the power to comfort, encourage, and, yes, heal.

p.s. Loren, I would really like her new book, The Parting
