Hello, I interrupt regular programming to give way to these three beautiful things that just made my day. Inspired by Three Beautiful Things, I thought I’d start sharing random blessings on random days here in my blog, too.
1. Last week, we took in 3 stray cats off our street. They were just too small and we couldn’t bear the thought of leaving them as we were passing through Thursday morning. They’re about 4 weeks old, we learned, thanks to Google. We feed them milk using medicine droppers and keep them in a shoebox.
I can’t remember ever wanting cats my whole life but so far, the experience has made me know David’s soft side a little bit more. Oh you should see how serious he is taking care of them! I tell him he’s becoming emotionally attached (and how adorable I think that is), which, of course, he denies.
2. My husband and I led Praise & Worship in church today. Standing up there together to lead a congregation of worshippers is a real joy (and an answered prayer), I still can’t get over how blessed I am.
3. Later in the evening, we opened our doors to a bunch of hungry friends from church and had an awesome time eating, and watching a cheesy tagalog film, and just hanging out. They brought some Chooks-to-go, I cooked tuna sisig, David played host.
As the day ended, I sat on the couch with my husband and we talked about how we spent the whole day extending ourselves to others and what a blessing it had been to us. “I’m so glad I married you,” he whispered. And I need not say it then but I know he knows that’s exactly what I feel too.
