Happy Thankful Thursday to you! I am praising the Lord at the top of my lungs, can you hear me??? I just finished the last of my papers a few minutes ago. My three papers turned into 5 papers this week. I had forgotten about a couple of 2 page papers in light of the 3 longer, more pressing papers. I just have to say that God is sooooooooo good!
My husband really wanted me to go to Chicago with him this week on his business trip but I just knew that I would have no time to enjoy myself. How fun could a computer carrying, book stacked, neurotic over 5 papers, girl be? God knew that my time would be limited so He provided time for me write all 5 papers while Mr. Incredible was away.
I have tried so hard not to impose my studies on my family. So, I wrote between classes, I would jot down notes when a thought would hit me between commuting from home and school, and mostly late at night while the girls slept and then again in the wee hours of the morning.
I may have only had 3 our 4 hours of sleep each night but God certainly blessed this time. I didn't have to worry about inconveniencing Mr. Incredible or waking him up with my crazy writing schedule, I could simply sleep for a few hours, refresh my brain, and go back to writing. I missed him terribly, but I am certainly thankful for uninterrupted writing times.
I turn in the last two of the five papers today and I am so thankful! So many of my fellow students were sick this week. One day I had a girl on my right and on my left who were coughing their heads off. God has protected my health this week and that is much to be thankful for too.
I know this is long, and I am sorry. I'm still in writing mode. God reminded me last night that if I had gone to Chicago, I would have missed out on prime writing times that He planned for me but I would have also missed out on the delightful new girls that are on my Pee Wee cheer leading squad and the joy that they showed. It felt good to get out there with them and move and cheer and shout at the top of my lungs. God knew that Hannah needed her momma to be her coach again this year, even when I was convinced that I didn't have the time, and He knew I needed to get out of the cave (my office) and breath fresh air and get some exercise with the best cheer leading squad that I have ever been privileged to lead.
Oh, God is so good! He knows our needs before we even ask and He takes great delight in showing His children that He is all sufficient and He cares about every detail of our lives, even 5 papers.
I'm off to sleep for the next 3 days, just kidding! I'm headed to school to turn in my papers! Hallelujah! Thank you for all of the sweet prayers and encouraging words this past week!
