I spend the day with my dear friend who is recovering from surgery.
I fed her my homemade chicken noodle soup. And some ice cream.
We were able to talk (way more than I thought we would, I was sure I would get a lot of writing and reading done today....)
And we were able to laugh.
She still is in pain, and still has a long recovery road ahead of her. But this was the most she has moved around, talked and been awake since last week Sunday.
For that, I am SO grateful!
Thank you, Jesus.
My contribution to my Advent of Trust posts for today:
A poem that I wrote as part of a creative exercise in my bible study devotional today.
My Abba Father
You rescued me from despair;
You healed me when I was beyond repair.
You are my shield and my defender.
To you my soul I will surrender.
Your strong love restores, forever stands;
My heart is safe within your hands.
Faithful Redeemer, powerful and just;
In you I will put all of my trust.

A decision, a choice of surrender and of trust.
