When we go to the Treatment Center in Zion, Illinois, we always stop at one of the beaches on Lake Michigan before going home.
I love this picture of my husband because he's just enjoying his walk, looking for rocks (for our Ebenezer gifts) and just basking in the day.
I love that after a day or two of medical stuff, we get to enjoy God's creation! How cool that God meets us in both places. :-)
God constantly surprises me with His presence in some way or another. For instance, one of the ladies' groups I'm in sent me an edible bouquet this week. In case you don't know what that is, I've attached a picture. This one is a bouquet made up of strawberries, pineapple "suckers" dipped in chocolate and heart-shaped pineapples! DELICIOUS! Just so you know, I plucked the chocolate right off those pineapples and indulged to my heart's delight! (God's surprise was not in the chocolate, by the way, it was in those gals' sweet, sweet, unexpected gift to me--for finishing chemo!).
Another surprise this week came when my husband ordered a CD from Tim Janis (actually talked to TIM!)--www.timjanis.com--and when my husband mentioned that I love the CDs, that they calmed me after chemo, Mr. Janis said he felt the Spirit nudge him to send me another of his CDs.
Now some people are kind, no doubt about it, but the more I thought about his words that the "Spirit nudged him," I was blessed beyond measure to think that God wanted me to have that special music that brings peace to my soul!
How often do I stop and consider that some things are truly a gift from the Lord?! WOW! I take so much for granted.
Well, sorry I'm rambling. These are just things that are on my mind today. How has God blessed you lately?
