Blessings on this Good Friday

I do not always look at the blessings in my life or what God has done for me in my life. So today I want to do that. First and foremost the biggest blessing I have ever received is the love of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on this Good Friday I can not forget what He has done for me! He suffered in a brutal and savage way for me. he knew exactly who I was and that I would need Him to be MY savior! You see because all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. All meaning me! So He died in my place that I may live with Him in heaven eternally. That my friend is a beautiful thing and a true blessing!

Two more blessings for me recently!
 1. I got a job close to my daughter for a while! For 6 weeks I was able to be Memaw everyday! I could see my daughter and her husband but better yet I could spend time with my grand sons! It was wonderful! I had been feeling down because of the job situation and because I had not had the money to go see them. It was more than a year since I had sent time with them (excluding my daughter surprise visit for me a few weeks before which she and her family came for a week!) (that only made me miss them more!) So you get it I was feeling down. The blessing is what I want to talk about. I spent days at the park with the boys, we went to movies, we went shopping at the mall, we went to the Build a Bear Factory(their parents bought the bears, actually Remy got a smurf but I got to have the fun with them). It was awesome!!! I babysat them, they spent the night at my apartment and we watched movies! Did I say it was awesome! It was! It was over way too fast which leads me to my second blessing.

 2. I got home on a Sunday night very late about almost two weeks ago now. I got an email before I left Oregon about a job fair at a local Ohio (home) company. They needed nurses to be case managers and many other areas. I got home Sunday night/ Monday morning the job fair was on Thursday. I went, why not I did need a local job. I had two interviews that day as the managers went over my resume. They called this week to offer me a job with wonderful benefits as case manager with Molina Health Care. They will train me for 6 weeks to help me be the best at the position and already talked to me about the possibility of moving up in the company once I complete my degree.  You see I was doubting myself when I got home did I have to travel around the country alone? Did I want to? (I would have had to if nothing local came about). And it did.

I know some maybe thinking God does not have time for your problems and down moods but I am telling you He does. He absolutely cares for and loves me! Enough to die for me and
He cares about you too! Enough to die for you!
I trust Him with every aspect of my life.
How about you?
