My Ten Things for Tuesday October 7

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday
Once again, it's Ten Things Tuesday. This feels like more of a stretch for me than most weeks. I am tired, indeed weary to the bone. Not because of my weekend away, but because I would prefer to not return to my day to day work life. It is good for me to take a moment to recall all I have to be thankful for.

1 -- I am a child of the Most High God.

2 -- God is most IN control when I am out of control.

3 -- This is Day 30 of the 30 Day Encourage Your Husband Challenge and not only have Rick and I grown closer, I have spent the month counting my blessings because I never had to struggle a bit to think of positive things to say about my beloved!

4 -- God is painting the landscape in new ways every morning and evening. Sunrises and sunsets are brief this time of year, and all the more precious in their glory. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalm 19:1

5 -- I have shelter from any storm, both in the natural and spiritual realm.

6 -- Our weekend travel was safe, with no snags or delays. I am always blessed by the favour we have with customs, immigration and security officials, no matter where we go.

7 -- My nephew is now beginning a new season of his life as a married man. I was able to be a witness to their vows and celebrate with family the joy of their union.

8 -- Once again I rejoice in the healing and restoration God worked between my brother and myself. We are able to truly enjoy each other. Our time together this weekend was wonderful. We laughed and cried and laughed some more.

9 -- Faith has a safe place to stay when we travel. I am excited to pick her up this afternoon and receive all the dog kisses I've missed since Thursday.

10 -- The peace of God. "Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7 New Living Translation

Love #2 and #10! God's peace comes to us when we are out of control. We try to do things our way but only His way works! Glad you had a good weekend. I hope you have an awesome week and God Bless! In His Love, MeChele

I love, love, love Psalm 19:1. It comes to mind every time we go to the beach for some reason. I love your blog, by the way. I usually don't comment, and I'm sorry about that. But it does bring me great joy!

What a beautiful list. I am looking at the 30 days encourage your husband or the 30 days TV free - I think either one of these will help our relationship grow immensely...thanks for visiting my blog!!

Welcome home!!

I was going to get in touch with you last night, but then computer problems occurred and again this morning!!

Anyway--I love your list--especially remembering that God is in control. So many situations I try and try to figure out myself, and then I remember--"Wait a minute, Beth! You have no control over this at all!! Give it to God"--again and again and again--surrendering to God! PALMS UP!!--that is my reminder to myself.

So glad you had safe travel and a wonderful weekend at your nephew's wedding!

Talk to you soon!

Great list.
Shelter from storms is so important for physical and emotional storms.
Praise the Lord for shelters!

Glad your traveling went well.
