OK, I cheated! This is little doll letting her finger nails get dry is the youngest member of my family. I’m the oldest. That’s enough similarity for me to use her picture instead of mine. 😀
I am celebrating my four year victory over death. How am I celebrating? Sitting here doing what I choose to do. In no pain, in no worry. My thanks to Jesus and his caring people. (OK there were probably a few grumps also—amazing how God uses grumps too if he needs to!)
Coumadin satisfactory, blood pressure 128/62, pulse 61, appetite, fully recovered, weight—let’s not go there. Suffice it to say my body’s ability to utilize food works well! Physical Therapy? Yes, pretty regularly, nearly an hour a day at least five days a week. And sleep? Bring it on. Very irregular but extremely enjoyable! So much for the vitals of my flesh!
How about my spirit? My vital are good and getting better with age! I’ve just finished the book of Job (Holy Bible) and I’m rejoicing, knowing God is in control. He sets the boundaries and the devil doesn’t cross them! Boundaries he sets are good for us whether we know it or not. As Job I say “I had heard of him with the ear, but now I have seen him.”
Then the Lord answered Job out of the storm…Out of the storm…Did you get that, Out of the storm? Whatever your storm, the Lord is in there with you. Job 36:15 NIV “But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them in their affliction.” If the Lord had not answered, I would never have met that little darling in the picture. I just bet I have more joys in the years to come.
It is summer and I’m in good company with daisies, butterflies, and hummingbirds. So thankful.
Have a great weekend and a wonderful last half of 2017.
