1000 Blessing's Friday & Friday's Feast

1000 BLESSING'S FRIDAY


211. Even though it was difficult to share my burden on Monday I knew I needed too. I know I have faithful prayer warriors in Blogville and through this I met so many new friends that I can't wait to have the chance to get to know better! Thank you to all for stopping by and taking the time to let me know your thinking and praying for my family. Especially my husband. Your words of encouragement are read daily!

212. I had another counseling session last night with my pastor and his wife. I love them so much and am thankful for their willingness to help. I am thankful for someone to talk to and him showing me from the Bible all the verses I need to be a godly woman. It's not like I didn't know them all ready, but when you are in the middle of a battle it's nice to have someone come along side you and show you where the answers are. Plus with my homework he gives me I'm held accountable each week. I have lots of verses to memorize. My poor brain hasn't worked this much in a long time!
213. We hired two new employees! Two young men that so far are doing a bang up job - not literally. 'Cuz that would be bad for the cars!

214. Today it is -7 degrees. And right now I am at work and under my blanket with a dog on my feet and a space heater to keep me warm. I am blessed with shelter. My heart aches for those that have no wear to go.

215. Each and every day I am blessed with the hugs and kisses from my three children. They are the absolute best and such good kids. They are strong and wise for as young as they are. I know God is teaching them through our situation. I am thankful for their hearts. They could be hardened by all of this and they have not. They are fighting evil with good!




FRIDAY'S FEAST


Appetizer


How many times per day do you usually laugh?

I find it pretty easy to see the humor in most situations. I'd tend to laugh even if I am crying. Like the name of my blog says - Laughing Through The Tears.



Soup

What do your sunglasses look like?



What? You got a problem with these? You know how much I like giraffes. Hey, at least they're not Donny Osmond glasses!

Salad

You win a free trip to anywhere on your continent, but you have to travel by train. Where do you go?
Since our trip to Washington D.C. last month was so short I would love the chance to go back and visit for an entire week. And I love going by train! My dad and I took a trip to Wisconsin one time to help my brother move. Just me and my dad! Wonderful memories for sure.

Main Course

Name one thing you consider a great quality about living in your town/city.
A traffic jam last about twelve seconds!

Dessert

If the sky could be another color, what color do you think would look best?

Why would anyone want it to be another color? BLUE is by far the bestest color ever in the whole wide world! And besides, blue makes me happy. Why do you want me to be sad? I just don't think that's very nice.

You're right about BLUE! I should go back and change my answer, 'cause I definitely don't want you to be sad. ;)
