Do you have a favorite comfort mug you reach for?  This is mine.

Even when we have snow in April, I love to fill up my snowman mug with hot chocolate!  It's so good on this crisp autumn night.  Even though there is a chill in the air, I love to keep my garden window open so I can hear the leaves rustling around.  I can't see them tonight, but I love to stand near the sink and listen to them.

Another of my comforts... or should I say my favorite comfort... is being wrapped in the arms of my Loving Savoir.  That's where I am right now.  I am saddened for my husband.  Rich has kidney stones and has been in pain since Saturday night.  We went to the urologist this morning and our options were to wait it out for it to pass or surgery.  The stone this morning is in the same place as it was when we went to the ER Saturday night.  Rich decided to wait for a couple more days and then surgery.  So we set it all up for surgery Monday morning.  Please join me in prayer that his stone will pass before then and we can cancel that surgery!

I'm grateful for my Loving Savior that lets me come to Him and pour out my heart, my grievances, my worries... all while He wraps His arms around me tighter, assuring me that all will be well.  All will work out.

He knows our hearts and feels our pain. It is such a joy knowing they we can find that comfort in His loving arms...and yes everything will be OK. I prayed for you and Rich last night and the Lord's will is at hand. It hurts to see a loved one in pain, knowing there is nothing you can do to help out...may he find comfort soon!

Hope everything went well for your husband.

I also have a favorite mug that i use year round even though it has more of an Easter theme.
