|I love my fresh, new, cheery little office!|
|I also had a few surprise flower deliveries!|
There were so many people who sent me texts saying they were praying for me and asking how my day was going. I really felt the Lord's favor and grace all over me through the love and care from the people around me. It was such a blessing!
However, Thursday morning started out a little differently. It was just one of those days where my mind was not in a good place. I was spiraling downhill quickly and couldn't get myself back up. As I pulled up to the office, I sat in my car for about 10 minutes trying to talk myself into walking inside. I finally pulled myself together and went in. It only took about 3 minutes, though, before I cracked and burst into tears as I talked with Dawn (our new assistant - who is really great by the way!) and another dear friend Kristy. It was a moment when really all I wanted was to be able to talk to my mom. I wanted to hear her voice. I wanted her advice. I wanted to feel her arms around me. I just needed my mom. But I am so thankful for the opportunity and for the conversation I was able to have with these two dear ladies. It was a beautiful moment of openness and fellowship that isn't often shared among believers. We held hands and they prayed over me, and in those moments of sharing and tears and prayer, the Lord brought a little bit of healing to my heart. He turned my "bad day" into a good one. He gave me the mercy and the grace I so desperately needed in the very moment I needed it.
So I would have to say that Week 1 back at work was a very good week! And so far, Week 2 has started off on the up side as well!
Thank you for all the prayers and encouragement that were sent my way!
"This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
