I can't believe I have been able to read lately. That means life is slowing down for me. A year and a half ago I would go through many books in a month; I couldn't keep myself in books. I was in a book club; I would get 4 books a month and read them all before the next shipment would come. It is so nice to have the time and the desire to read again.
My boy's are really enjoying having time off of school. I have to say I am enjoying having them home. Yesterday, I made them Scrambled eggs and toast for Breakfast and today I made them very soft tasty Cinnamon rolls. I made 16 of them and there is only 2 left so I think they enjoyed them.
Even with the things going on with my Step-dad, I feel content with my life. I haven't felt this good in a long time. God has given me a piece that I can't explain but I can feel it. I am smiling more and laughing again. I look at my family members and thank the Lord for each one of them. I have a beautiful home that God has given me, a loving husband, 6 of the most wonderful children a person could be blessed with, a daughter-in-law that I love with all of my heart, 3 of the most adorable grandchildren in the world. (I am bias on all parts) I have a church that I have attended and been a member of for the last 18 years. God has given me a voice to sing praises to Him. I have some of the most wonderful Godly friends in the world, they would do anything for me and I would do anything for them.
Our God is an awesome God!
I am learning with the Lord's help to be content with my life. I thank Him each and everyday for opening up my eyes to what is right and good, to what He has given me and done for me on the Cross.
"I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content"
