Giving thanks

My husband had been sick since Wednesday. Yesterday morning he was still sick so instead of attending church I stayed home with him It was the first time in each of our lives that we missed going to church on Easter.  It felt very odd and we missed worshipping with our church family. 

Jim began to feel better in the afternoon.
Today is feeling good!

This morning I am giving thanks ... 

 First to the Lord who healed him!!  Then we thank the many who offered prayers on behalf of him. We are thankful for the Internet where we could join in with another church service yesterday morning. We are so thankful for the messages and calls from friends and family.  We thank our daughters and their husbands for helping us with with various things.
 I am very thankful that tomorrow night the table will be set, the food prepared and we will have our family Easter dinner that we could not have yesterday.

In the midst of sickness we both felt loved and cared about!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
1 Chronicles 16:34
