Quiet & Calm Sunday

Sunday, March 17, 2013

This has been the calmest weekend I can remember in a very long time. My son and daughter are both home, no drama at the moment, and it's so priceless. We went out yesterday to celebrate my son's new job letting him get some things he has been wanting. We walked all day at the mall and different stores, then ate at Subway for Supper. It was a really great day. Earlier before we left my husband and I went to the gym and I worked out for an hour and 20 minutes. We have been trying to do this every Saturday even when we have to sing/travel with our group, we feel so much better if we start our Saturday off right.

We went to my parents after church today, and my dad was in one of his moods, but I am so thankful that God had given me the strength from our morning service to be able to deal with his argumentative attitude. My daughter was a little agitated, but I stepped in and reassured her that he doesn't think before he speaks. My husband who is only able to take my dad in short bursts, went for a run in his church clothes. I understood he needed to get away so I didn't say a word, I just sat and talked to my daughter and mother. When my husband came back in from his run, he sat down and dad wanted to debate, so he sent me a text saying "Help Me!" and I made excuses for us to leave. I pray for my dad, he just has no idea how much he frustrates everyone by his need to always be right, or his need to argue and belittle. I know it is God that enables me to be around him to have a relationship with my precious mother. It's a struggle sometimes!

My best friend and I are going to the gym tomorrow after work even though I'm getting up early in the morning, I made her promise to go with me after our work day ends. I am tired at the end of my day, but I feel so much better if I work out even if I just run a mile and a half instead of the 3 miles I've been running.

I'm so thankful for this wonderful weekend God has blessed me with, to be able to be with my family and to truly enjoy them. I feel so blessed!!! :)

Praying that everyone has a very blessed Night & week ahead!!!

    Wonderful blog. You are truly blessed, and the Lord has blessed you with patience to deal with your dad. My mother was like that, and so many older people are, and some even get worse as they age. May he not be one of those.

God bless you. Hugs. Ravyna
