Not long ago I posted a verse
about the Lord not promising us
an easy life . . . but that He does
promise to always be there
for us whenever we call
(Shout out His name or pray).
But please know that . . .
He will never forsake us.
I have to admit that my life has
been very hard lately.
So many anniversaries, birthdays
and special memories that have brought
deep emotional feelings to the surface.
Life can be hard and there are days
when if I did not pray before allowing my feet
to touch the floor in the morning,
I would never make it through the day.
I have to remind myself of how incredibly
blessed my life has been.
That is not hard to do . . . I have food
in my cupboard, I have hot and cold
running water in our home,
and a toilet inside the house.
Our home is warm and protected from
the elements . . . no rain, snow or wind
coming through the walls.
For my age I am incredibly healthy,
able to walk without a cane,
able to breath without a device,
hands that can sew,
eyes that can see and read,
and a brain that sill remembers
my family and friends.
We all know person that can not
say that . . .
and there are times that we just
don't stop to think about it.
(after chemo and facial hair growing back)
When we do; we can shout out
praise to the One for
whom our blessing fall.
Thank you Jesus!
Well, that's my post for today,
I hope that it was an encouragement
to you . . .
it was to me, I needed to be reminded
and to wake up and be grateful
for what I have and
not crying over my loneliness.
I am the last person on this earth
to minimize the process of Grief,
but I've also learned in the last
two years that it is easy to let it start
controls our lives.
That is not good and our loved ones
would absolutely hate seeing
us allowing that to happen.
This was a self inflicted kick in the butt.
I needed it!
God bless you all.
If I offended anyone . . .
I could have started this post
with: Dear Connie,
It was more for me than you.
We all have so many blessings
to be grateful for :)
On my anniversary this week
I am going to celebrate the 44 years
that I was privileged to be
this sweet man's wife.
Thank you for visiting.
