Well...thanks for asking! Let me tell you what I did. I went out to eat at a restaurant! Would you like me to repeat that? I WENT OUT TO EAT AT A RESTAURANT. If you're new here, you think I'm a crazy woman but if you've been with me awhile I hope you're celebrating God's healing power right along with me. For 19 months I've not been in a restaurant. It was impossible. Last night I went back to my favorite with a couple friends and some of our kids. Can I just say what a riot! Food was great, laughs were many (and loud), company was some of the best and God gets all the glory.
I caught myself complaining yesterday. About someone. Someone that "bothers" me. I was reminded that it is something I have been missing out - being annoyed by this person. Grateful to be among annoying people, now there is a new concept for me. I have said that I don't want to forget all the lessons I've learned during my perch sit. I want to be different. Lord, please don't leave me without a permanent reminder of The Perch. May I take this year & a half and be different "out there".
May each day no matter how mundane be a blessing to you. Let's not take it for granted. The ability to scrub the floor, grocery shop, be amongst annoying people, go out to eat, walk, serve the Lord, carpool, go to work, attend church, cook a meal, take a meal, shovel the snow....ok I will quit. Can you tell I am just a bit excited to do the ordinary.
Thanks for continuing on this journey with me. You'll never know how much you have meant to me. This has been the hardest trial of my life. I know I have a long way to go and I am hoping you will continue to walk this out with me.
By the way...I had a large order of guacamole (to myself), 2 enchiladas and finished it off with a large blizzard from DQ. (I knew you were dying to know)
