Blessing my socks off!!

I can't even tell you how much I have been blessed in the last week (ok my life but we are just talking about the last week).

I gotta tell you a couple of stories, so please bare with me.

First is Mrs. Kim MacNish. I met this wonderful woman when Lear acquired UTA. I was the executive assistant to a few VPs and had no idea how things worked about Lear, had complete knowledge of UTA, but this wasn't UTA anymore. I got the name of Kim from the VP who thought she was AWESOME, "Kimmy knows everything" and he was not wrong. Not only did Kimmy know everything, she was SUPER nice too. I had met her years prior but didn't remember because she was friends with my uncle who helped raise my mom but I met her when he was dying, like one time. So my cousin (my uncle's daughter) said if you ever meet a Kim MacNish tell her I said hello. Now, you know me, you can only imagine my "ohmygosh, she's the greatest EVER". Kim has continually supported me through the 7 years at Lear, she has given beyond my wildest dreams to my Breast Cancer walk, and I am completely blessed. Work is more than just a career, it's a place where we meet people that touch our hearts forever.

My cousin is coming in from Nebraska, and I am so excited!! Haven't seen her in awhile!! WOO HOO!! another blessing.

I have received so much support for my Breast Cancer walk, I cannot even tell you!! My heart is overwhelmed.

I started working with Grace Centers of Hope. It was a blessing serving. I love it there, it's a great place and have shown people the hope in the Lord that they might never have come across. Last night I went to their Wednesday Service. What a blessing!! I didnt' realize I met so many people because I must have said "hi" to what seemed to be a million people last night. But really, that was a blessing, but the biggest blessing came from the heart of Pastor Clark. Oh my!! That man can open his mouth, and the word of God just flows from it. He spoke of so many things, mostly about our faith in God. And how we live our lives for God. And if we truly put our trust in God. What a blessing last night was, a lot of people don't understand why I would drive all the way to Pontiac for a service, I don't understand why someone wouldn't drive all the way to Traverse City from Florida if God called them.

There are many more blessings going on in my life, I'll be praising God forever.

Psalm 30:12 Lord, my God, I will give thanks forever.

Lord, I ask the you bring safe food and water to the Thailanders. Lord, keep them healthy and strong in You to do Your works. Lord, help them to fall into Your arms for Your strength, because Lord, we know that we can do anything through You. Lord, I love you more than I could ever say, hear my heart, and speak to me, and Lord, speak loudly to them. In Jesus' mighty name, Amen.

I love it when my socks are blessed off!
I agree with you in prayer for those Thailanders - that the Lord would provide provision and safety and I continue to pray for you as you drive those wheels right off your car following Jesus!
