What a week.........and Gratitude

One of these days I'd really like a boring week where nothing exciting happens......however, God has not seen fit to bless me with that at this point. The week started out innocently enough, but then went awry Monday evening when life got more than a wee bit dramatic when I was involved in another car accident on the way to a meeting. I'm thankful though that I only had minor injuries, mainly bruises, because it could have been much much worse than it was. I'm still waiting to hear if it is repairable or if the insurance will total it. I'm praying that it will be repairable because if it is totaled I have not clue how I'm going to manage to get a replacement vehicle. If it is repaired, then I'll be w/o it for about 3-4 weeks depending on how long it takes to get the parts to repair it and everything fixed..........

Last week my niece Bekah, gave me a Gratitude award. Little did I know that I'd soon have another reason to be grateful. And in spite of everything I am very thankful for all the blessings that God has given me and for how He has provided for me over the last 18 months as I've dealt with unemployment and everything else that has happened in my life. And I'm thankful for the gift of being able to quilt because it really does help manage the stress in my life.

I'll pray for repairs, too, and that the insurance covers it all. I'm just glad you weren't damaged and looking like the car!

Oh Moira, I'm so glad you weren't injured other than bruises. My prayers are with you for both you and your car. That you won't have to get another one and this one can be repaired.

We'll be praying for the repair of the car. I'm soooo sorry you're having to deal with car repairs again.

Aunt Moira, your testimony of gratitude, and trust in the Lord, has really been awesome to watch over these months (years). We're praying for the car situation, and of course for the job situation. Love you so much!
