Restless Night...and # 8

We've been up for a while already this morning so I thought I'd go ahead and post. Neither of us slept well last night. Eddie couldn't get comfortable so he finally wound up in the recliner around 3. I kept one ear open all night listening out for him. I think I was a little uncomfortable not being in my own bed anyway. I've found lately that, while it hasn't mattered earlier, now when I travel my back starts hurting from being in a new bed. I guess it's because I like such a squishy mattress and I think I might be in the minority on that. I like to sink into my bed. Sooo comfortable! Eddie says he's not any more sore than he was yesterday. He's steering clear of the pain meds this morning but I'm going to try to talk him into some ibuprofen at least.

I'm going to Madeline's wedding tonight. Eddie hasn't decided yet whether or not he wants to go. I can't wait to see what everything looks like! I'll take pictures and post those later this weekend. I know she'll be beautiful!

Thanksgiving #8: There has been lots of discussion lately about the election. I haven't mentioned anything on here politically because I don't want this to be a place where you have to listen to things like that. However, my #8 has to do with political things. And I think it's something we all need to think about and trust in. While I don't like the turnout of the election, I have to say that my God is bigger than all of it. I am so thankful that even though the economy is bad and there is a war going on and someone I don't think I trust will be President very soon, my God has us all in His hand and He's bigger than all of it put together. I'm so thankful that He is taking care of us, even when we feel distressed...especially when we feel distressed. I have faith in Him.
