Leave any prayer requests in the comments and I’ll be praying this week. You don’t have to be Christian to leave a prayer request. If you’d rather not advertise to everyone on the blogosphere, just leave an unspoken prayer request or email me. Not to be mean or anything, but if you don't email me or comment to update your prayer request, I'm only going to pray 3 Sundays.
Blessed be your glorious name, O Lord.

Thank you for a smooth, quick recover so far for me, Lord, and please continue to help me with my physical therapy. Please give me discipline in all areas of my life.
God, you are so good. Amen.
My new purchase: I went shopping today at Marshall's after church. I needed brown socks and I was also looking through their bags for a multi-compartment tote bag I could use for conferences to put my laptop in (as well as all my other stuff).
I didn't find a good tote--the ones I saw were too small or had a very weak closure (and I wouldn't want my laptop sliding out of the bag). However, I found this lovely creature hidden among the other handbags:
Dooney and Bourke, baby! AND IT'S PINK!!! It was also $120, when it's normally $225 from the catalog. I thought long and hard because even discounted that's nothing to sneeze at. But my husband said it could be my early birthday present.
Just looking at it makes me happy. Sigh.
