Thankful Thursday



Count your blessings, name them one by one, count your many blessings, see what God has done.1) I am thankful, that I am going to be able to get a second opinion about my eyes in a couple of weeks. The eye doctor that did my cataract surgery, basically gave me all the bad news about my eyes, and then said, there is really nothing I can do for you. Well, God will work all of this out, His will be done. 2) I am thankful for a husband that loves me, regardless of the fact that my weight goes up and down like a yoyo recently, due to all of the medicine I am on. 3) I am thankful that my baby precious(my cat) is feeling much better, she no longer has a stomach virus. 4) I am very thankful for the strength God has provided me with recently to get through my health trials, He is truly carrying me. 5) I am thankful that I am able to rest in my Fathers arms whenever I need to, day or night, He is always there for me. 6) I am forever thankful for the promise of heaven. 7) I am thankful for the precious memories that I carry in my heart, and in my mind of my dear momma. I have really been missing her lately, it seems like when you are sick, you always need your momma, no matter how old you are. 8) I am thankful that I am still able to blog for now, and God willing, I will continue for a very long time. 9) I am thankful for friends, what would I do without my sweet friends. 10) I am thankful for today, thank You Lord.

Denise - I am so sorry to read that the eye doctor kind of 'wrote' your eyes off -- I am glad that you are able to get a second opinion.

How wonderful to have a husband like yours by your side to be with you in the good and bad time.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Blessings to you and Eddie.

nice thankful list, really we need a second opinion especially when it never satisfies us..may God continue to bless you..happy TT!

Kris said...

Coming from someone who has gone another five years past what one opthalmologist said would be the must-have-surgery point to keep my vision legal....I empathize wholeheartedly! Second opinions are a MUST, but gratitude for each day is even more necessary; you're an inspiration!

Nise' said...

Rejoicing with you over a second opinion! We are never too old to need our moms, you are so right!! Your thankfulness despite circumstances is such an encouragement and testimony of His grace and love.

Heather Cox said...

I understand the need for Momma...I'm glad you're comforted by your memories, your loving husband and your Father in heaven. Hope the 2nd opinion is better. Let us know!

Mary said...

Denise, I'm standing in faith with you on your eyes. God desires that we walk in health and healing. Thanks for sharing sweetie. Blessings on your day.

MrsMomma said...

As always, your thankful list touches my heart. Thank you for sharing! I'm so thankful you have the opportunity to get a second opinion. And you are right, when you are feeling down, what better place to rest then the arms of God?

Blessings,

What a beautiful Thankful list. I enjoy reading Thankful Thursday blogs. It reminds me of things I should be thankful for and people I need to call and say thanks for being you. I think I'll call my mom today.

Joining you in prayer about your eyes. Having those loving hubbies is a real blessing isn't it? God Bless You. I enjoyed reading your Thankful Thursday. If you have time come by my place, I have a special prayer request.

You are just up the 'road' and I do hope that the opinion on your eyes goes well...My brother in law is an optometrist with an Opthamolgist group in Rome, Ga..you aren't by any chance going there are you...fabulous guys there!!
I will be praying...

and the memories of your mom..I pray they fill you with peace..
you are such an encourager..
peace,

I know just what you mean about missing your mom. We always will but we will meet them Come Morning!
Sometimes the sadness and grief is heavier than others. I pray that You will be lifted up and that your eyes will get better soon.

Robyn said...

Thanks for sharing your list with us. It is so nice to see how your faith is not shaken despite health issues. Those trials can be tough but God is so faithful to be there for us.

According to HIS Power said...

Today I am thankful for you, sweet friend. Thank you so much for saying that I am a wonderful mother, you have no idea how much I needed that today!

I imagine that you do miss your mother very much. I live right down the road from mine but when she is away I always wish for her to be back soon. You will see her in heaven and rejoice!

Count your many blessings is my absolute favorite song of all time! When I was going through infertility, I would sing this with tears streaming down my face and it always helped. It's hard to feel sorry for yourself when you are singing that song!

I so hope that your second opinion is a better one! I will be praying for you constantly!

Love you,
Julie

Diane said...
