Home Days

Don't have anything real exciting or even real spiritual to share today.It's been a quiet day here at our apartment.Steve has done something to his left hip so has been resting for much of the day.We all need those quiet days I think.Even if not due to injury or illness.Days to simply be at home.To rest,reflect and relax.We've been enjoying days of sunshine here.Not a common sight here in the northwest in the middle of winter.Consequently I have thrown the curtains wide open to let in the delicious and oh so warm light.It makes me so grateful that God has created light and sun and warmth.Which reminds me of something.I have never really been a"tropical"person.I don't like excessive heat or high humidity and am not even overly fond of palm trees.I have always been more of a mountain lover myself.But lately I have been watching shows here and there on HGTV or the Travel Channel that have shown people buying homes in places such as Panama and Honduras.And I have been almost captivated by the warm,sunny climes and persistent tropical breezes blowing in off the ocean.I find myself wondering what it would be like to dwell in such a place.Which is odd for me but maybe not.The prayer most often on my lips and in my heart for myself this new year has been"Lord,change me."Perhaps He is.Just not in the way I thought He would.Just kidding.Please keep my husband in your prayers as his hip is rather painful.Thanks so much.

It's funny, I have been hoping for snow here in NC and this morning we received "our snow". I will continue to pray for you. Did you ever pick up your award at my site? Please do, it is a honor to read your blog.
God bless you and your husband. Please know you are in my prayers.
Your sister in Christ,

Praying for your sweet Hubby....... and sometimes the nice quiet day with nothing on our minds is the best time for God to speak.. Our minds and bodies and spirits are at rest..... AND you would love the tropics ! I lived in the Philippines for two years,,,,,,, wonderful but I had snow withdrawals! Got to have a little of both!
