Thankful Thursday


Another Thankful Thursday, and I am very thankful to be here. My recent hospital stay, has left me feeling quite drained, and feeling weak. I praise God for watching over me, like He always does. I truly felt like I might go to meet my Father. I have never felt that bad, diabetes is vicious. But, my God is victorious over sickness and death. Praise God for wrapping His loving, and healing arms around me. I am thankful for dear lovebug, he has been so worried, but trying not to show it. He never left my side, or stopped praying for me. He is my heart, and I praise God for that. I received a call from my doctor today, concerning the results from my thyroid ultrasound that was done on Friday. I have five nodules on my thyroid, they said it was inconclusive, so they do not know if any of them are malignant. I have to have another ultrasound in July, to check for changes, and to see if any are malignant. I am not worried, or scared. My God is the peace speaker, and He has spoken sweet peace into my heart. Be blessed my friends.

Denise,

I have been wondering how you were doing. I'm thankful to hear you are home and doing better. I'm thankful that nothing shakes your faith and is such an encouragment to many! Especially me!

I adore your relationship with your spouse - how precious!

I'm praying God continues to use this time and trial to draw you even closer to Him and to grab hold of His love that much more!

Blessings and hugs,
Jill

It's been a while since my last visit... and I'm not really sure how I feel about your entry. I thank God with you... but I also feel like I wanna cry. I praise God for your faithful other "whole", your lovebug for his gracious care and comfort.

Ahm... I wanna appreciate you for your site's new fashion. I love it, Denise! I hope there will be more Thursdays for you and others in this meme.

Lori said...

Praying for you and your health. I heard a story last night during my bible study:
There was a nun who knew she was dying and people asked her if she was scared. She replied, "Me scared, heck no, I get to give up this body for a perfect one!"

Denise we want you here for a long time, you either way you win. Praying for Drs wisdom and your healing.

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

My Mom is diabetic and it IS vicious! She has FINALLY learned to control it though...well....most of the time.

You are in my PRAYERS!

bp said...

I'm glad you are home now. I am always encouraged by your posts. Happy TT to you!

Laurie Ann said...

Denise, you are a true inspiration to me. I loved your post! I hope one day to have your faith and strength of character, my friend! I am so sorry you've been so sick, but God has been so faithful to you. You remind me of the apostle Paul. Though he was sick throughout much of his ministry, he was so faithful to God, just as you are! May God continue to strengthen you and give you a time of rest from your illness. I am so glad you're not worried about the nodules; however, I do wish they wouldn't wait until July. My MIL had growths on her thyroid that were non-malignant and once she got it out she felt 10x better. I want you to feel good and strong and healthy again. I realize with the diabetes that's impossible in the natural, but our God is a God of the impossible, so that's my prayer for you. That this is a year where you'll feel great and have not as many health issues and complications.

Happy Thankful Thursday to you. Love ya!

Sweet one,

So sorry about your illness and recent hospital stay, but your faith is so encouraging to this "TT" Community... Blessings

Sharon Brumfield said...

You have to wait till July to see if the nodules are malignant?
Goodness seems like an awfully long time to wait to find out. But I know the doctors know what they are doing.

Keep looking up to your source of strength. We will continue to walk with you and pray for your continued recovery. I am so thankful that Eddie is there to take care of you.

Rita T. said...

Praying for you tonight...

You are such a blessing to so many people. Thank you!

LauraLee Shaw said...

I've been thanking God ever since I heard you were okay. Truly. God truly desires that we thank Him for our sufferings, and you get that. I am humbled to know you. Can't help wishing I were close by where I could be of tangible help. I don't understand why they have to wait until july to check for malignancy, but I'm sure it's complicated.

Please, PLEASE let your sisters in Christ know if you need anything tangible, okay? Or email me if you wanna extra voice of prayer. Bless you, dear Denise.

BoufMom9 said...

Beautiful post! Saying prayers now for your continued good health and continued strength through faith.

Debbie said...

Denise, I love to read that no matter what health issues you're facing you have total trust in the Lord. May His peace continue to be with you.

Lady of Value said...

I agree, diabetes is vicious! Praying that you feel better soon. Maybe the nodules will go away by July? Praying for healing.

You are blessed to have a husband that loves you so and bloggy friends that love you too.

((hugs))

You are always in my prayers dear friend and I can't tell you how much you inspire me with your faith.

I have a nodule on my thyroid as well and they've checked it twice and it doesn't change so I never even think about it.

Your blog is beautiful! :)
