Lydia has had a very long day. She was up at 3 am, and has slept little today. Generally, she has been sleeping well each night and resting at times throughout the day.
She has a rash on her stomach of unknown origins. (If she were on a TV House episode, he'd no doubt have a battery of tests and treatments until the cause was determined and then treated. In the real world, the rash is simply monitored!)
Her casts this week are bright orange and show off signatures well!
Psalm 40:16. But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
May those who long for your saving help always say, "The Lord is great!"
Psalm 40:5 Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us.
None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

There are moments at the end of the day, when we try to count back over the mercies and blessings of the day, and find we cannot keep track of them all. There are also days where troubles seem to outnumber blessings. On these days, we choose gratitude, and worship.
From the earliest years of our marriage, we have sung together the hymn, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
Look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of his glory and grace.
