What a beautiful day the Lord blessed us with. It was good to be back at work and I am so thankful to have a job that I enjoy. I don't really consider it a job since I love what I do, working with young people on a daily basis. After work I met Tony at his mom's apartment to start the cleaning out/sorting process. Makes you realize how temporary our "things" really are. Grandma is about to be 75 years of age in May and there is very little she can take with her to the Nursing Home. It's sad to think she will never be able to live alone again and all the things she has collected will more than likely be going to someone else. Matthew 6:19-21 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." I've heard this verse for a long time but today it really hit home. We work so hard to try and gain so much in our lives, but in the end, nothing really matters, except for our eternity. Luke 12:15 And he said to them, "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Grandma is still in the hospital waiting for a release to go into the nursing home. We pray that happens tomorrow, Tuesday.
While we were working, Susan Byrum brought us a wonderful homemade dinner with her famous strawberry cake. What a blessing to have so many friends willing to help us out this week. We appreciate all the phone calls and texts from friends wanting to give us support with packing, cleaning or with whatever needs we might have. God continues to show His great love through so many. We accomplished a lot tonight and plan to finish boxing up everything tomorrow night so Tony can move all Grandma's stuff into storage before Saturday.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
