The anniversary of my husband’s death did not start very well. The weather has turned to the cooler side and it hit my aching feet with a vengeance. Maybe the stress of the memories had a part in it. But my gracious Heavenly Father had some surprises for me.
Remember a few days back I talked about the “two little old ladies on social security that want to win the children of the world”? Here we are, posing by a fall scarecrow. Majetta (to the left) helped me run some final errands before my trip and she and her husband graciously invited me to lunch at Incredible Pizza. God knew I didn’t need to be alone on this day.
The elementary school in my neighborhood asked Pastor Mario if our church could help with volunteers for the Fall Festival. It was this evening. Five years ago Majetta and her husband, Wayne, directed a Bible Vacation School at my house. We wondered about the children that had attended. Guess what? I got to meet some of them at the Festival. Such a treat!
What did I do to help? I was in charge of the tickets for the popcorn. Here are the other “pop corn” ladies:
We all had “Faith Assembly of God Cares” T-shirts
In the same room where we were located there was a pumpkin carving contest. Have a look!
A great treat was the colorful paintings in the trees and the sky that I enjoyed on the way home. I felt like God had prepared that treat especially for me. And now I pass it on.
Now the sun is gone. Not gone, just hidden! It sure seemed hidden from my life this morning. In Psalm 30:5, we read: “Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” For me it’s usually the opposite. I weep in the morning and rejoice in the evening. By the time I’m ready to go to bed the pain has subsided considerably.
Forgive me mentioning the pain. We can always smile through tears.
I praise God because he gave me a day to remember.
