Have a Gratitude Filled Sunday


Appalachian Trail in Maine
*
Good Sunday Morning to you Sweet Friends,
*
Hoping you have had a nice weekend full of fun and family.
*
Our's has been good and fun,  especially after we got the
results back from hubbies blood tests on Friday Afternoon.
It was an excellent report,  so we have been celebrating!
Since he is a heart patient and has had bypass surgery,
he has to get bloodwork and check ups several times
a year,  so they watch those test results like a hawk.
So it is always a lil stressful waiting for those results.
*
So we went and check out a new shopping area
and then went to Carabbas Italian Restaurant
for dinner and then came home and watched
a movie,  so it was a fun evening
celebrating the good news.
*
He will have to have a nuclear stress test sometimes
in the next month to just check and make sure things
are still fine!  The last time he had one a year or so
after his bypass surgery,  he flunked it and had to
have a heart cath and a several stents put in,  so
the word dread comes to mind,  but I know the Lord
doesn't want me dreading it cause the Lord is in control,
 and my job is to pray and trust,
 so I need to focus on that instead!
So if you want to aim a few prayers in my direction
it would be greatly appreciated!
*
Well dearies,  I have a few verses today from
Psalm 19:7-11, that I saw this week while reading.
*
"The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.
*
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
*
The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
*
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
*
The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever.
*
The ordinances of the Lord are sure and
altogether righteous.
*
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
*
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
*
By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them is great reward."
*
*
Hope you have a gratitude filled Sunday
for all God's good ways!
*
For He is soooo good to us!
*
Love, Blessings, and Hugs,
Nellie

Will be praying for you and Jimmy and holding that everything work out well on all his tests. health issues seem to be so frightening sometimes at our ages. You just never know and having the faith behind each day is so wonderful, just knowing that God is aware and cares and has a plan is so comforting.

Every year in January I start over with all the check ups, always praying everything is good. Jim too. So far so good but there are things I definitely need to work on. the older I get the more I need to rely on the Lord for every single moment of peace.

I am glad it is Sunday. Love going to church and getting spiritually fed for the week. I often wonder how those without faith make it through the day. It babbles me that people choose this way of life?? Why?? Don't you wonder?

So praying for you both!

Love, B
