God's love has been poured out over me this weekend and my heart continues to be overwhelmed by His goodness and grace. My prayers is that I won't get so caught up with others blessing me, that I forget to be a blessing to others. There are people all around us daily that are hurting and if we keep our eyes and ears open, God will show us their needs.
I had two of my dearest friends that I grew up with come in town on Saturday. They drove 8 1/2 hours to hang out with me for the day and had to leave early Sunday morning to return home. Judy Lynn and I became friends in 4th grade and Deborah Mae and I became friends in 10th grade. (Debbie claims I was mean to her in 9th grade so that is why we weren't friends until the 10th grade) We've always called each other by our first and middle names. We did not go to school together but attended the same youth group and have remained friends throughout all these years.

Ephesians 3:16-19 "that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith-that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Apart from God, I would have no way of understanding how much love has been poured out over me and my family. Just when I think we've been blessed more than I can comprehend, more blessings continue to fall upon us. We had so many come to our home tonight and pray and several brought gifts with them for me to take to Houston.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
