Bless the Lord…


It was a great, great morning at church, and Sunday afternoon was going to be great too.
The Hubs and I were going to babysit baby granddaughter.
During lunch out with friends and the little cutie pie, it started to snow.
At 21 months old she was fascinated and excited at this cold, white, fluff coming down.
After lunch, I checked my phone, and noticed a voicemail from Mama’s assisted living center.
While I was at church, my 85 year old mama had fallen in her little apartment
and shattered her hip. 
Mama is in the hospital, scheduled for surgery tomorrow.
Instead of an afternoon with baby granddaughter,
I spent the afternoon in the hospital with Mama.
You can never be certain what a day has in store.
But there are some things I am certain of…
God loves us.
He is good.
He does good.
He is in control.
I am blessed.
I have so much to be thankful for.
