Thoughtful And Thankful Thursday

It has been another challenging week for our country with weather causing so much destruction.  It has been another challenging week for me health wise too.  My usual 40% of 100% energy levels have plummeted to 20% on a good day. It has given me great pause and the burden of worry is adding to my heaviness.  It is a good time to look back at the past week and give thanks.

We are blessed to have good doctors and practitioners who care and are concerned about our health and my increase of symptoms.  I am blessed to have a husband with a deep love for and commitment to me.  A faith that sustains and a love that at times carries.  I am blessed to know that God is with me no matter what the circumstances...no matter what my today is or my tomorrow brings.  We give thanks that little Georgia got through her difficult challenge at the hospital with the tests and is recovering as they await the results.  Giving thanks that Giving thanks that my post cancer check up was good ~ no sign of cancer!  Praising God for my beautiful view, my laptop, a good TV with remote, and more books than I need! 

Thank you for coming by ~ please join me in praying for the following requests, and leave me any you would like to add.

~ Three year old Georgia is now having bouts of hives.  Prayers for insight into this and healing from it.

Lord Jesus, we lift up to you your children, your faithful servants. We ask that you reach out and touch each one of them and bring healing into their lives. You are a God of miracles, a God of healing, our Jehovah Jehri ~ our provider, our Jehovah Rapha~ our Lord of healing.

In Jesus name
Amen

And for you dear Renee. Praying all that you need will be provided. You are right, God is faithful and good. I join you in prayers for all you mentioned and add a dear friend Bland. His lung cancer has returned.

God be with you and enjoy the view!

Blessings,
Elaine

How beautiful are your prayers and your thankfulness to our God. I will pray that you regain your strength and are comforted.
Giving thanks helps so much to put matters in perspective. Wondering if you read Ann VosKamp's One Thousand Gifts. It is about that with her unique and lyrical writing-a real uplifting read.
Sending love and prayers.
