Thankful Thursday


I am thankful this week for my precious sister. I do not get to see her very often, and I really miss her. I have not seen her since December when lovebug was in the hospital, but she has been my rock throughout all of this. She constantly calls me, sends me cards and letters, and prays for me. She also sends me goodie bags with snacks, and other surprises. Thursday, she has an eye appointment here in Chattanooga with my eye doctor. Lovebug and I also have eye appointments on Thursday, but our appointments are in the afternoon, my sister has an early morning appointment. We are going over there to meet her, I cannot wait to see her, and give her great big hugs. She said she is bringing me another goodie bag, and I also made her a goodie bag. I copied several bible studies and devotions off of the computer for her, she does not have a computer. I made her several goodies, and I am giving her a card. I am also thankful that I am going to see the eye doctor, praying that he will be able to help me. Also praying that lovebugs examination will be fine. Father God is so very awesome, I praise Him for this smile upon my face, and I pray that you are all blessed with smiles today my friends. I love you all.

Wow Denise, I feel deprived all of a sudden. Must be wonderful to have a sister like you...I am the only girl, though I now have a SIL.

God bless you and yours and I'll say a prayer for the three of you.

Hi there! Thanks for commenting on my Wordless Wednesday post. I am laughing at the moment because both of us posted about our sisters for Thankful Thursday! :) They truly are a blessing, aren't they?

Denise, many people have been praying for Eddie and we are eagerly anticipating God's answer to our prayers. He knows best. And whatever the outcome, we know we can trust His heart.
May you and your sister share a happy time of fellowship.
God bless you all!

How wonderful for you to get to see your sister. It seems that she is thoughtful like you are. I'm sure you bless one another. I'll be praying that you and lovebug have good appointments and that you get the help you need.

Oh how great to get together. Goodie bags how fun. I was just thinking about you and food I don't know about diabetes and restrictions. I guess your probably at doctors now.
Father God,

Amen

Hi Denise! I have misse you. Just read your last 2 TT posts. So glad to hear that LoveBug is doing better! Glad you will get to see your sis. So sorry about someone hurting you with words. Shame on them! Hope that situation is better. If not, forgive them and move on. Many blessings to you, my friend.

I hope your time with your sister has been full of blessing and mutual encouragement. Praying that the doctor was able to make accurate assessment of your eyes - yours AND your lovebug's. His grace is sufficient for ALL our needs - small and large.

Irene said...

Ah, your beautiful, grateful soul! May God's blessings be with you. I pray for good news from the doctor for both of you.

Amber said...

Must be nice to have a sister. I wouldn't know, but I'm about to gain a 'sister' when my brother gets married. She's really nice.

I hope everything goes well for you and your family at the eye doctor. I hate going to the eye doctor, but mine is cute, so it makes going there a little better. His name is Joel like my brother. Haha!

Crystal said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Sisters are such a gift. I do not get to see mine very often either. Boy do I miss her. Have a wonderful visit with yours.

Georgia said...

Oh, Denise, there is nothing like having a sister. I'm very close to my sister. She is 17 years older than me, so you'd think there would be this big communication gap, but there isn't. Perhaps it's because of what she always said about me. She always says, "I was never a child. I was born an adult.", referring to my maturity. Amber is the same way. Her circle of friends refer to her as the "grandma" of the group. LOL

I'm hoping everything went well at the eye doctor. Please let me, or you've probably already blogged about it. I'm catching up with my reading now. If not though, please let me know.

I hope you enjoyed your visit with your sister. I always enjoy mine. Love you bunches and God bless!!

You are so blessed not only to have a sister, but to have what is obviously a very close relationship with her! You are BOTH so very fortunate!! I hope you will have a wonderful visit and a great time catching up with each other. ♥
