Reflections At 11 Months

My reflections today are at 11 months since Paul moved to his heavenly home.  There are so many changes that take place when you lose your spouse, we were married for almost 34 years, and he was a part of my every day.  When I go to the grocery store I still find myself wanting to walk down the aisle to purchase the items he needed and liked.  In the morning I miss our conversations and him telling what the weather would be like for the day. During the day my thoughts were-“what will we have for supper?”.
Other thoughts during the day were “I need to talk to Paul about….”,  I miss the weekends; where he always had a project to work on in his shop and I would run errands, clean the house and work on my crafts. Our Sundays were probably the best day of the week because we would make sure we had a special meal- always something on the grill and we would make sure there was extra so that we would have leftovers for the week. We never had a problem with leftovers. 😍.
For the most part you could say were “content”.  In my recent Bible Study we talked about being content, along with this Bible Verse:

Philippians 4:11-13New International Version (NIV)
“11 for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Only the Lord can give the strength that is needed to be “content” with how my life is now.  Within my life now, there are blessings and I can see how the Lord is with me every step of the way. 
Thank you for visiting today.
Have a blessed day.
