The Marty Stuart concert on Friday night was great. Though he has lost his ability to dance as he used to do, his voice and talents have not changed. His band is very musically talented. They played country, of course, along with bluegrass, gospel, and the blues. We had such a wonderful time.
Prior to the concert, we tried out a new restaurant which proved worth it. I had a crab cake dinner which was probably one of the best I have eaten. A small restaurant located on main street, along a busy hub of town. The aura was so relaxing, and it proved to be a great lead up to a wonderful evening.
Spent some time with my sister on Saturday. As I told you, she had her next to last surgery on this past Friday. She is doing exceptional, which is not at all surprising. I made her a pot of ham and dumplings. She emailed me last night to say she was enjoying her 2nd bowl of the day. It brings me such joy to do for others. I will just be glad when God brings me to a place where I can do so much more.
Sunday service was great as always. We have only been at this church for a short period of time, but I am enjoying it. I want to get more involved now that soccer is over. The people are so warm and loving. I think we may have found our nesting place for awhile. I miss where we used to go. I have nothing but the highest respect for the Pastor. The praise and worship was some of the best, but I just felt our needs were not being met for numerous reasons, and it was time to move on. Sometimes God wants you to move regardless of how comfortable you have gotten. He cannot promote you in life if you refuse to allow Him to lead. I cannot say for sure it was Him who moved us, but I am sensing a peace about it all that I cannot say I had previously.
Had a very sad moment returning home from church this morning. As we were travelling up the road, we came to a point where traffic was at a halt and we could see the blue flashing lights. As we passed the situation, we saw on the right side of the road a dead bear, along with her baby cub. It was no bigger than a small infant. It simply tore at my heart. This is the third time in two years that I have seen dead bears on the side of the road.
My son and I had dinner tonight at my nephew's home. It is always nice to spend time with family. Now we have to get ready for the busy week ahead. I am blessed to have a job to return to in the morning, though I do look forward to see where God is leading me in life. I know He has other plans for me ... some I sense with excitement ... but patience is not my strongest attribute. At times, I sense His destiny for me right within reach, but then I feel it getting further away. Go figure! Each day I wake with anticipation and excitement to see where we go today. It could be "THE DAY", and if not, then tomorrow may be.
This week I have some personal goals I desire to attain. Please keep me in prayer! I pray for you all and I hope your week is full of joy. Draw closer to Him and all will be well!
