Praise Day 280: Today I praise God for a wonderful dinner with a wonderful young lady.......Jennifer Stacy!
Today was such a wonderfully blessed day! It started with Old Fashioned Day at Church. The Band was playing today at our home church and it was such a great blessing! We had a wonderful meal prepared by some of the best cooks I know! I then went home and had such an incredible talk with Samuel as I took him back to his car that was at my house. He is such a hoot to talk too......not to mention that he has such a depth to him. He and I connect on so many levels and it is not often I get to talk to someone who "gets" me! (I can be rather confusing...hehehe) I then got to spend time getting the house cleaned and food prepared for the "Highlight" of our day........Jenn was coming! Bubba and Tammy were going to come too, to have a little family dinner for Chelsea because her birthday was on Saturday, but the kids got sick and they were unable to come. You see, a couple of days ago, I found out that Jenn was in town and we have been wanting to see her while she was here. She has been stationed in Iman, Jordan for the last year or so......and Canada before that. She is a Marine and we just don't get to see her very often. She is one of my heroes! I would put her up against any fella......any day! She is all wrapped up in a pretty shell......but she is one tough cookie! We are so very proud of her and who she has become! Her next trip will be in the Middle East again.......and again.......I will miss her! When we found out she was free on Sunday, well, we took full advantage! We had an incredible dinner.......Flank Steak......mashed potatoes.......corn.......and cucumber, tomato, onion, and feta cheese salad.......OH HOW GREAT IT WAS!!!!!! As good as the food was though.....the chance to spend time with God, our Church family, Chelsea, Christian, Chris and Jenn......well, it just made my day PERFECT! I am so thankful to Jennifer for the sacrifices she makes....to Josh, to Rob (who just retired.....yeeeehaaaaw) and to all of our service members who give so much......for so little! I am thankful for my family........I am thankful for my church.......I am thankful for the Band......and most of all, I am thankful for my Jesus and for all of the blessings He has made me privy to from the Sacrifice He made for me! I pray that each of you find the time to thank God for what He has done for you!
I am a fun loving Honeygram, wife and mother who loves Jesus with my whole heart! If you have any questions.....just ask me and I will do what I can to answer them! May God Bless You All!
