For me, I have had a lot just today :) First off, we had a lift this morning at 8:30 a.m. Now I wasn't too thrilled about lifting that early in the morning, but it is a blessing to be able to lift. I then went on to practice where we did shooting. On the way home I got some havuc suyu (carrot juice) to drink on walk home. Let me just say, there is nothing like fresh carrot juice!!
This afternoon, I took a short nap, then I was able to briefly talk to my parents. I try to call them every morning and chat for about 5 minutes before they head off to work. I then walked to practice. Practice went well today...we did quite a bit more running today, but we once again survived...and what a blessing to be able to run up and down the court.
So, after practice is when I started getting showered with blessings. First off, I got a bike :) I have been wanting to get a bike for awhile, and I now have one! I am hoping to be able to curtail some of my walking, and it will be nice to have the bike to get around and go to places if I want to. My coach walked me to a place where I could get the tires pumped up because they were low. Another blessing happened as I was carrying my bike up the stairs to my apartment. I opened the door to wheel the bike in and as I was going to shut it, there was a man standing there. He was holding a box and I was wondering what it was. He came into the apartment and dropped off a convection oven for our apartment...WOW! I had been asking to get our oven fixed, and nothing had been fixed for 4 weeks, so I was ecstatic when I saw the guy dropping off a convection oven. I got used to using once in Ankara last year, and this one is a brand new one and super nice! Then the guy motioned to look at our shower head (that has been broken awhile too). I could not fully understand everything in Turkish, but I could make out that he was going to come tomorrow night to fix it :) YAY!!
I have had to wait awhile for some of the things to get done, but good things to come to those who wait. Thank you Lord for supplying all that we need in your perfect timing.
So I ask you once again...what blessings from the Lord have you been given this week? Take time to thank Him :)
Verse of the Day:
