"when everything falls apart , " .....Praise HIS Name

Monday, January 11, 2016

{ ....... You can run away and hide,
Let the " old man inside " decide , or, .....
You can change your circumstances with a Prayer !! ;) }

I am STILL HERE and , ......my heart is sooo thankful for EACH and every FRIEND that has
visited me and kept in touch like they have.

I don't think I can find the room I would need to FILL IN " all things " , here , but ,
can I just say that in all of this " , I have found THE BLESSING IN THE THORN ! ;)

And, .....can I just say , Great is Thy FAITHFULNESS, Lord unto Me. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many ,many , many TRIALS have crossed this path that David ( my husband ) and I are walking and November and December has been MUCH , MUCH for us, but , ......we have come out the other side , " Better People " for it and my heart is FULL of THANKS !

All of November found David with "Diabetic Foot Issues " too many to handle and then ALL of December found " his Mom " in the hospital needing ALL of his " minutes of his day ." :
Sooo, I had to " pause " my time here , until just today !

I still have " my goals " in front of me and I am " slowly " going forward to the Finish Line, too !

I am sooo looking forward to getting to get back to this Daily Routine of " visiting " back and forth with all of ya'll and having time to read your " pages " and all of us share back and forth with each other !

I never knew , until now, that God could use " such a time " as these DAYS " have been "
to GROW ME and CHANGE ME and HELP ME , .......but, HE HAS , and I am soooooooo
THANKFUL , " way deep down in my heart" , tonight !

I surely hope that THIS finds each one of you doing " well " now and that you are , each , FULL OF HOPE for our " future days. " :)

Blessings on each one of you , tonight and have a wonderful Tuesday for yourself. !!!

Because of HIM, ....and ONLY Because of HIM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Wow. I am so thankful for this blog. It reminds me of a comment I heard recently. "How do people without FAITH survive the traumas of life?" Sad for your traumas, Grateful for your growth and survival. Hugs, Audra

    Blessings. As caregiver to my parents, I know how time-consuming it is, BUT so rewarding to be able to re-pay them for all they did bringing me up! They did a bang-up job, if I do say so myself!

    Hope the foot issues and your DH's mom are doing better.

    It's so good to see you back and I pray that you and your family continue to get better with the dawn of each new day, as you rest in HIM, who is so FAITHFUL.

    In the following link, I changed the words myself, as they grated against my spirit, when I first heard this song. In the last part of the chorus, they sing, "We find the strength to press on." To me we don't find the strength to press on, but "HE gives us strength to press on." That's what I changed the lyrics to in my own mind.


    In the next link, I found that we are who we are and it is what it is, but we're all FLAWLESS!

    ALWAYS REMEMBER where your help does come from.
