Thank You My Friends


I want to say thank you to everyone, for your heartfelt prayers. I am so very grateful for your love, and friendship. They mean more to me, than words could ever express. It has been a long, and weary week here at the Oldham home. I thank God for Eddie, he takes such great care of me. He is so sweet to update my blog for me, he knows how important you all are to me. He is being so strong for me, but I know he is worried about me. He told me the other night, that if he could, he would give me his eyes. All along, I had really thought, that my vision would improve. I knew I would never have perfect 20/20 vision again, but I did think I would have no more pain, or smeared vision. I thought I would be able to have half my vision back. But, yesterday, I realized that is not going to happen. My vision is never going to improve, the nerves in both eyes have been damaged by neuropathy, they have wasted away. According to what the MRI shows next Friday, my vision will either slowly continue to get worse, leading to blindness. Or, there are several other outcomes. But, you know what? My vision maybe wasting away, but my faith is growing stronger everyday. God gave me precious sight, and if He chooses to take it away from me, that is okay. May His will be done. I hold you all deep in my heart, sending you love and prayers.

Denise, I am thankful for the many things you "see" that others miss. Your insights on your blog are beautiful. I will continue to pray with you and your family. I pray that the Lord will continue to strengthen you for the journey ahead, going before you and making your way for you! In Him,

So nice to see you blogging again Denise!! I think we are all happy to see you back!!
Please just rest and take care of yourself. I admire your attitude. I am not sure that I would be able to have such a positive one like you. BUT we never know until we are put into that position.
Take care and God Bless you!!
