A Month of Thankfulness

November 18, 2010

Today I am Thankful…

…for God's comfort.


I realize that I am a day late with this post, but I did want to include it.  Yesterday was a hard day for me.  I couldn't really put my finger on it, but something was bothering me.

This morning, I realized that I had thought about my precious late friend Gail quite often this past week.  I guess because I celebrated a birthday, and because there were some other little, unimportant, everyday life things that I wanted to share with her.

But I couldn't.  She's no longer here.  So I am experiencing again the loss of my friend.

I spent time in the Word yesterday, took a nap, read 3 (small) books, talked with my hubby, hugged my son, laughed with Isaac's caregiver and went to bed.

At some point between last night and this morning, I realized that God's comfort can come in the smallest, most mundane ways. 

Yesterday was a comfort day.  The demands were small, the routine was reassuring and I had time to breathe and think and rest.

Psalm 71:20-21Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

He is a God of comfort, and I am very thankful!
