At the latter part of the summer my friend Suz came over for a visit and brought me a natural alternative to the 5 hour energy drinks. I laughed and asked "Why?" She brought a smile to my face, "Because you blogged you were going to need something to maintain your energy once school started in order to meet deadlines. See I read your blogs?" Oh my goodness, we laughed and laughed.
I have yet to try them but know the time is coming as my first deadline is fast approaching. I am not sure which touched my heart more, her thoughtfulness or that she finds time in her very busy schedule to read the blog. Then again, I don't think it is either. It is in fact her friendship that touches my heart the most. At one time Heidi considered her one of her best friends and today, I can say the same.
My energy is zapped thanks to many factors this weekend. The strep throat and fever are just the cherry on top of a rotten sundae. I won't bore you with the details but know your prayers are welcomed and appreciated.
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith,
we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ
our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith,
Christ has brought us into this place
of undeserved privilege where we now stand,
and we confidently and joyfully
look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into
problems and trials,
for we know that they help
us develop endurance.
