Miracle Monday


This week, I would like to share the miracle of my sister Vickie. My sister was diagnosed with diabetes when she was only eight years old. She will be 53 on April 8, so she has been living with this disease for 45 years. It is a continuous battle for her, but she is a very brave warrior. God has worked many miracles in my sisters live. There was more than once, when we thought she was going to lose her leg, but God stepped in. She did lose a toe, but God brought her through that time, and made her realize that life is so good. She really does take the time to smell the roses now. She has had heart attacks, and heart surgery. God stepped in again, and brought her through with flying colors. She now has kidney damage, her kidneys are only functioning at about 40%. But, you know what? God is still waiting to perform more miracles. We will never give up, but we will keep on believing. Praise You Lord, for all you do. I love you.

Good Afternoon Denise,
"PRAISE GOD" indeed for Miracles. He performs Miracles each and everyday. I know he will be performing another Miracle on your Sister once again. GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!!!! He showed me and my DH a Miracle back in 1999 when my DH had a bad wreck and broke his Pelvic Bone in 2 different places. He was very lucky to come out of it alive I've heard. But God stepped in and performed a Miracle. Well, it sure looks like Eddie loves you very much. That was so sweet of him to give you all of those lovely Easter goodies. I know you love him very much as well. You 2 sound just like me and my DH. We still act like teenagers in love sometimes. LOL. We hold hands out in public and he will even put his arms around me and give me a kiss out in public. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Denise,

My admiration for you grows exponentially every time I read more miracles and get to know you more. I truly feel when you experience great pain and suffering you experience Christ in great ways as well. I see you, also, fall into that category.

KEEP BELIEVING

Thank You, Lord, for Your touch on Vickie and on Denise. Thank You for the witness You have given us in precious Denise, Lord. Denise and I may never meet this side of heaven, but Lord, please make sure we have a table for 2 in Heaven. We'll have a lot of catching up to do. In Jesus' name. Amen.

I can tell that you really care for your sister. It's too bad that she has had to go through so much with her diabetes. Praise God that he keeps bringing her through.

Thank you Jesus for your daily miracles in Denise's life, her sister's life and all our lives!!

I pray that no matter the "life" He is bringing to us...we clearly see and know that it is from Him.

Enjoy Him. I praise Him with you.
I pray that each day for you is full of love and joy!

So many times He works in ways that we do not see.
I am thankful that you see Him at work in your sisters life--and I know you see His hand in your own life.
Praise God!
