One Month, One Hundred Gifts-October

 October was a month of many events and changes for me. At the end of September I was laid off my job, due to the store being sold. God did an amazing thing through that and gave me the best job I could ask for! I'm enjoying every day of work as the housekeeper and cook for a single mom and nanny for her two little boys (1yr and new born)! I also spent a week in Florida for the celebration of my Grandparent's 50th anniversary. During all this...I felt like an incredible failure. I felt so weak and helpless. Everything I tried to do seemed to turn back on me. But God. I love those words. But God. And His, what can I say? (Hopefully more on this soon in a post on Grace For the Good Girl.)
You turned my wailing into dancing; 
   you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 

that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. 
   O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever!
