My kids took me out for lunch yesterday which was very very nice. As we talked and laughed and waited a half hour for our appetizer, an hour for our entrees, and another half hour for dessert, I had plenty of time to look at the tables behind us. I saw 2 different women, at two different times, the both came in alone and looking miserable. They both sat at a table, reading a book while they quickly ate their meal and went back home. It made me sad and grateful at the same time. I am so grateful that I can be with my kids and we all enjoy ourselves and laugh and joke and have fun.
Last night I had a nightmare about being at home in bed with a toothache when I needed to be at work for a meeting. I think I will get to work and put in the best day I can. Tonight is my final exam in Biblical School - so I have some studying to do today.
And here is my memorization verse for the test that I will share with you:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
