"Blessings Continue To Pour Out"

I was blessed to spend the weekend in Dallas with a lot of my family.   Bryan & Jenna had planned a trip and had asked us to go with them.   I've had to cancel 2 of my recent trips (Hawaii & Branson) so we weren't sure if I'd be able to go on this trip.  Friday came and I felt good and was excited to get in the car and travel.  The car was packed to the brim.  When you travel with a 2 year old and 8 week old, there are plenty of necessities.  

Saturday we went to the Dallas Aquarium and Zoo.  My nephew Aaron lives in the area and spent the day with us.   Later in the evening the rest of my family that lives in the Dallas Metroplex came to our hotel and spent the evening with us.  When this trip was planned I had no idea that we would be spending time with my niece, nephews and family.  It was such a blessing that they chose to take the time and hang out with us.  We were planning on playing games but spent time visiting instead.  Thank you Aaron, Micah, Amanda, Miranda, Chris and Christopher for sharing the evening with us.  I was truly blessed.

We headed back home today and stopped at my brother and sister-in-law's house for lunch.  Traci made a great meal and we enjoyed several hours of more family time.  I had no idea that this trip would be spent with so much quality family time.   God has continued to show me great love through my family and this weekend He showed me even more.  I met a lady named Angela at the hotel breakfast this morning that has breast cancer and we shared part of our journey and prayed together.    I am so grateful that not only our children but my entire family and friends have been there for me.

I wrote this blog on the way home in the car and had no idea that more blessings were in store for me when I got home.   Jordan and David had taken care of our dog while we were gone over the weekend and I called her when we were about 30 minutes away and she told me they were at our house letting the dog out again.  I asked her to stay until we got home so we could all see them.  I was the last one that walked through the front door and found the most unbelievable surprise awaiting me.  My living room, dining room and kitchen had been completely transformed into a new home while I was away this weekend.  I am in total shock and words cannot express how happy, excited, overwhelmed, amazed and whatever else comes along with disbelief of what my friends have done for me.  My home is the most beautiful home I have ever seen and I don't want to go to bed tonight.  I want to sit in my new living room and continue to soak in what has been done.   How can words tell those that have done this for me how grateful I am?  I don't understand the love of God and His faithfulness because He continues to pour out blessings upon blessings on me and to Him be the glory, great things He has done!!!!!

My Newly Transformed Home!!

  Psalm 9:1-2 "I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.  I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High."

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
