Thankful _ March12 _ March18

Such a great week! Road trip to Texas to spend time with one of my favorite families. We met in east Texas and served together with Mercy Ships. My heart is happy and I am so very thankful!

2317. 9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4‬:‭9-12‬ NIV) Thanks for the reminder.
2318. So many friends to hold me up in prayer.
2319. Even though sometimes I have no idea what to do.

2320. 15 So I will very gladly spend for you everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less? (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭15‬ NIV) a very good question indeed.
2321. Round things. Pills that control my BP. Red clown 🤡 nose. Copper table fan.
2322. Today was a very good day. And I overheard a surgeon saying nice things about me.

2323. 11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭11‬ NIV) 00 that we would strive for full restoration, encourage others, and live in peace Lord.
2324. Gifts of silence. Focused thinking. Owls 🦉 hooting. Morning birds 🐦 singing. Roosters 🐔 crowing. Silence for the sake of silence.
2325. Out of work early. Road trip!

2326. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭23‬ NIV)
2327. Arriving in Abilene in a timely manner.
2328. Reunion with a beloved ship 🚢 family and hanging out in their new lake home.

2329. 28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭28-31‬ NIV)
2330. Learning Texas things. Northers are like no’easters. FM means farm to market used in place of RD in a road sign. I like Texas.
2331. Like Arizona, Texas has many terrains. And historic landmarks. And accents.

2332. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭16-18‬ NIV)
2333. Rejoice always. Didn’t realize this was one verse until today for some reason?
2334. Discovering my awesome Texas 🚢 friends love hiking and the wilderness as much as I do and dreaming with them about long distance hikes and ultra running (me being on her support team).

2335. 30 As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. (‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬:‭30‬ NIV)
2336. Red dirt in Caprock Canyon State Park. Wild turkeys 🦃. Buffalo. Coyotes. Tumbleweeds.
2337. Hiking in Texas with ship 🚢 friends.

Happy Sunday!
