REVISIT A TIME 8 years ago

This is a post I put on Facebook in February 2013. It was after the hernia surgery I had that month. I had no idea what was coming; it was only five months before the critical heart issue I had in those Colorado Rockies.

Hey, I’m sliding into home base! I get the hardware (staples, drains) removed tomorrow, I hope. Gaining weight, hoping I have at least 8 pounds of hardward to remove. Probably, an ounce and a half. Was it worth it? I am thankful to report that I’m doing well. Thanks for prayers. But my problem is not just physical, so keep praying! I sure won’t willingly say you can be free from praying for me! I’m anxious to get a routine which is more satisfying that my last year has been. But for some amazing reason, I say it was worth it. Beats me how God does that. Not only is his grace sufficient, it is abundant! Facebook Feb ’13

After all these months (years) of illness and accidents, I still am amazed how the Lord brings me through the rough stuff. Every time He proves himself more and more abundant in his goodness, love, and mercy.

What a bland life for those who know only wealth and good health. No wonder their search for significance is turned to gathering more wealth or find fame in some other way.

He is the greatest of adventures; the greatest of guides; the greatest of comfort, peace, joy….

His grace is all sufficient. I am in need right now. I’m turning my mind to see what He works out.

I wrote this last week before I knew I was going to be in the midst of a new crises so soon! I appreciate your love, concern, and prayers.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
