Tuesday quickly turned into friends covering shifts and Robert and I playing tag as we each ran back and forth from home to work to home to work as we each had meetings we both had to be at through out the day. Wednesday turned into much the same with an added bonus of a friend leaving dinner in the church refrigerator for us to pick up. If I have learned anything in the hard months of February, March and now the first week of April, we are not alone and our community has kept our little heads above water (so, so, very thankful for our RiverStone community!!).
Now, back to my "Fresh Start." Jesus gave it to me one week ago today. Little man may have been feeling better on Thursday so we sent him back to "school", just for him to wake up from his nap on Friday at 4:30pm screaming, "IT HURTS!!" So off to immediate med we went--an ear infection and ten days of antibiotics for us! But here I am, once again on an absolutely beautiful Monday morning... again. It's not April 1st, it's April 8th, but I'm still claiming it for all it's worth. The winter is gone, the Spring has come. The McLendon's need a Fresh Start. We need the Fresh Air. We are drinking deep of all the goodness of Jesus as He says in Isaiah 43:19, "Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" A Fresh Start. Jesus has that for me today (I'm claiming it with every ounce of my being and not letting the enemy steal what Jesus has given me). If a Fresh Start is what you need today--know I am praying for you!
