Blessings of the Weekend

It's weekend again. As I sip my morning coffee, I think of the things I can look forward to this day and tomorrow. It looks like today is going to be a fun day with the family. This afternoon my husband and I will drive to the next town to attend a birthday party, not of our adult peer, but of a seven-year-old kid. I'm not sure if we'll also wear party hats or get our share of loot bags, but that would be an amusing occasion if we could. 

This weekend, I also get to see my daughter again who only comes home on weekends. She studies in another part of the country and our weekday communication is limited to calls and texts (thanks to my unlimited subscription to a cellular network). I hope we could share stories face-to-face again. 

This day also, I finally inquired from an ebook distribution company about the possibility of self-publishing an ebook. I have ideas dancing around my head and I'm taking steps to find out how I can venture into digital publishing. Exciting!

As for tomorrow, I expect it to be a time of intimacy--spiritual intimacy. I heard my pastor is going to share a message on "Loving God from A-Z". I was afraid he might go through the entire alphabet but no, the preview  said he'll talk about what it means to love God with all your mind. I'm not sure if and how much I love God with all my mind, so I'm getting ready to listen.

Weekend, as the name suggests, is the end of the week. It may be a time to complete an unfinished business or it could be a much-needed break from working, but it is also a time of great expectations--a time of looking forward to blissful blessings. What are your weekend blessings?
