I just spoke with Janet and she is a bit dopey :o) but doing well.
She was under the knife for fifty minutes. Although she was surprised by the amount of pain yesterday, she is already feeling better.
She has help with the children today so she will read books and magazines and eat bon bons and get well!
Thank you for praying for her!
"Maybe you haven't been able to discern any specific gift that God has given you, but eternity may show that you yourself have been a gift to somebody."
"As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."
1 Peter 4:10
"For as in one body we have many parts, and all the parts do not have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ and individually parts of one another.
Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: if prophecy, in proportion to the faith; if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching; if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others, with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good;
love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor.
Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the holy ones, exercise hospitality."
That list of gifts is not preached about very often.
We are all more gifted than we realize.
Encourage one another...thank you for yesterday's comments :o)
