Thankful Thursday


I am thankful for my life, may I never take one minute of it for granted. My diabetes is really out of control, and has been for so long. The Doctors are doing their best to help me, but I seem to feel sick constantly. I am not complaining, I know there are people dealing with much worse than me. If this is my burden to carry, that is fine. God has a reason for everything, and I trust Him completely. It hurts to see lovebug worry so much about me, and take constant care of me. He has seen the better, and definitely the worse. He is always there to rub my back through all of my nausea, clean up after I throw up, put a warm rag over my eyes, to try and soothe my hurting eyes. I love my lovebug with all I am, and consider myself truly blessed to be his wife. I praise God for bringing us together, and keeping us together. God has made our marriage such a beautiful blessing. I cannot express how very much I love my heavenly Father, He is my all in all, my everything. Father God, please watch over my lovebug. He is burdened right now over his job, our finances, and me. He loves me so much, he says I am his heart. He gets scared when I am sick, he says he could not live without me. Father God, please reassure him that all things are in Your very safe, and capable hands. We will be fine, because You love us.

Denise,

You are my hero. I think I would have a hard time praising God through a storm.

Carla said...

I am in tears, sad tears for burdens, happy tears for your faith and love!
Our poor husbands, the ones who so want to provide for their family, are really being slammed with this ecomony. I see how so many men took their own lives in the first Depression, providing for their family was what made them important. How blessed are we to have husbands who (hopefully) can see there is more than money making them important. God bless your lovebug!
Many blessings to you and your family.

You are truly a steward of the gifts God has given you - that you continue to spread joy on your blog and remind us to be thankful even for life itself -- never to take one minute of it for granted -- is a testament of HIS JOY in you!
May HIS joy continue to be yours in this time of trial.
God Bless you and lovebug
