New Days

Oh ya'll.....God is so good. I slept the whole night for the first time since my eye thing has started!! I feel AMAZING!!! It was with the help of a little PM medicine but I was getting desperate!

These meds I'm on have been really messing me up at night. I'd fall asleep for two hours and then be awake for FOUR. Sweating like crazy and just not able to settle down into a good sleep. But all that changed last night! WHO HOO!! =)

Today is going to be a great day. In a few hours I start my new job as the pre-school music teacher which I'm thrilled about! I have so many ideas and can't wait to get started. Tomorrow we have our GEMS meeting and God has somehow given me the strength to get everything ready for it! So I'm excited about that too. You'll have to wait and see what your next chance to win is! And Cindy, girly, I AM getting yours in the mail from last time!! I'm so sorry!!

Since I don't have a ton of time this morning, I just wanted to share something I read this morning that really hit me hard in my heart. My good friend Yvette gave me a book called "Come Away My Beloved", a few months ago and this book has been amazing to me. It will speak to my heart as soon as I open it up.

This was a little poem that was in there today:

"O My child, rest in Me. Y
es, quietly settle down in My care, as a bird settles in a nest.
For I am watching over you, and in love I will care for you.

There is no danger with which I am unable to cope.
There is no enemy too formidable for ME to handle. I am able to carry out all My purposes, and to keep you at the same time.

Be not afraid;
neither allow terror to strike at your heart. My power is at your disposal. My Presence stands around you, and nothing can harm you so long as you are in My care, and that is
FOREVER...."

Isn't that beautiful??? God is so sweet. To know that we are in His care....forever. WOW! What an amazing promise!

I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed day! Thank you for the prayers and love! They are working!!!

Say a quick prayer for Alexa. She is having an ultrasound today. She found a lump.

Nicki, I just finished coming from a prayer time, where I was praying for you - so happy to read how God is answering prayer!

A friend gave me that book as well. It is a treasure. May the Lord continue to speak to your heart and encourage you.

Blessings,
Joy

I am so glad you got rest last night. It does feel so great to wake up feeling like you have energy. Praying for your first day of work and your GEMS meeting.

Nicki, I'm so glad to read this praise report. God is good and I am so thankful for the ways He is working in your life. I hope that your class went well and that you have fun at GEMS!

Sleep is amazing. You will be so well and in Him wonderfully in everything today. I celebrate with you that God came through with all you need right on time.

I have sleep apnea. Once I got my c pap machine to address it I felt I found the fountain of youth when I got regular healthy sleep every night. Sleep is one of the greatest gifts of health and thriving we can receive.
