Well, seeing my sister yesterday was so awesome. We laughed, cried, hugged, hugged, and hugged again. I love her dearly. Praise God, her appointment was very successful. Her eyes are doing great, I am so thankful. Lovebug also had a successful visit, no problems, praise God. More thankfulness. My appointment was not so successful. There is nothing that can be done for my eyes, my vision is 20/200. I am legally blind, and my eyes will not improve with, our without removal of the cataract. Glasses will not improve my vision, so I will not ever be able to wear my glasses again. I had been praying that my vision would improve enough for me to wear my glasses again. My doctor told me to go apply for SSI, that they will help me because I am legally blind. So, next week, I am going to go apply. Please pray for me, I really appreciate your prayers. We went to talk to lovebugs boss yesterday, he told us that lovebug cannot come back to work on lite duty. They only allow you to do that, if you were hurt on the job. He told lovebug to wait until he goes back to see his neurologist on May 11, and see if the doctor will release him to full duty. He said he will not put lovebug back on his old job, he will put him on a job where there is no heavy lifting, or climbing involved. So, lovebug was very disappointed. Lovebug goes today for another infusion treatment. Please pray for our finances for April, and May. May God cover us with His loving care, and protection. I love you all so very much.

Hi Denise, Alicia is right, God has Plans for yall, we may not fully understand why things happen to us but whats important is God knows why we go through what we do, I feel we go through the things we do for a reason like to help others we come across who may be going through what we did or are.
We are teachers to others who is going through it just like God is our teacher, ok if that makes any sence, Im not good at explaining things :/
God Loves yall and there is a reason behind EVERYTHING we go through.We may not understand them but thats ok Our Heavenly Father is there to help us through it all.

I'm glad you had a good visit with your sister. But I'm sorry the news about your eyes wasn't better. And I understand the pressure you must be under with the loss of income from lovebug. I'll be praying for you Denise. Remember that nothing is impossible with El Shadday.


Beth in NC said...

I am sorry to hear the news about your eyes and your husband's boss. We just have to trust that God is protecting your husband from something and has a better plan.

I will continue to pray.


Joan said...

Denise - I agree with Alicia. God's thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are His ways our ways. He knows what is best.

I'm thankful you were ablt to enjoy the visit with your sister.

Praying for you, dear one.

I had emailed you before visiting but I'm glad to hear that you had a wonderful time with your sis. I am keeping you in prayers sister and I know it's not easy at times when things do not go the way we want it to. I had been there before. But I know you. You trust in Him completely. He knows what's best and I'm praying that a bigger opportunity would be given to bro. Eddie. It may sound mean but this is what I feel that the Lord wants me to say: Not all with eyes are able to see...But we see with our hearts. I hope those words would bring you comfort instead. I love you sis and be strong in the Lord's mighty power!

Karen said...

We don't always understand the timeline the Lord uses to bring about His plan...but we always know He loves us and will keep us in His hand...praying for you....

I'm very sorry to hear about your eyes. I will be praying for you!

Alleluiabelle said...

I love you Denise! I'm so sorry about the doctor's news about your eyes and about lovebug's job. God will provide!

You continue to give me so much encouragement along the way...we all are all going through so much aren't we but the Lord is with us every step of the way. All praise, honor and glory to his mighty name.

I continue to pray for both of you dear mean so much to me.

There was a reason why El Shaddai was studied by so many this week! I will stand believing in the God of impossibilities for healing in your eyes, Lovebug and finances! Let's praise Him.

Gretchen said...

Just said a prayer that God would bless and take care of every need. So sorry for these trials, my friend. But I'm so grateful for your faith, and His love for you.

Georgia said...

I'm glad you had such a great visit with your sister, but I'm heartbroken over your news and the news your husband received, but you know what? I'm going to become your prayer warrior in these matters. I'm going to fast on your behalf and pray every single day. I'm going to write all your needs down and put these requests into my church's prayer request box so my church can raise you both up in prayer. God is still on the throne. He sees your every need and you will become VICTORIOUS through Christ Jesus!! Nothing, and I mean absolutely NOTHING is impossible with God!!!

Please know I love you with all my heart and I will always be here for you. I wish we lived closer. *sigh*

I am praying that you will get SSI. I used to sign people up for it and I see no reason why you won't be able to get it. Sorry about Eddie's job but hopefully the Dr will release him and his boss will find just the place for his skills. We'll pray for that, too.
I hope you were able to get something for your eye pain.
Love you, girl.
Mama Bear

We will continue to pray...and you just keep on doing what He has gifted you to do and that is encouraging others...His blessings will overtake you when the time is right!!!!

We friend, I'm so thankful you had a good visit with your sister. I know it was good medicine for both of you.

Now that the AWI conference is over I PROMISE to call you next week. Mike and I are doing some sprucing up around here this weekend. Only 10 more days (as of Saturday) until I get to hold my grandbabies! My heart is FULL.

Love you and praying for you and Edie and your health. (I talked about you in my session today.)

Hi Denise, sorry things didn't work out the way you hoped it would with Eddie's job. I'll be praying that God will supply every need you have.

Debra Kaye said...

Oh my friend,

I'm so happy for your visit with your sister. I am living with my sister, Candy right now. What a blessing she has been to me at this time in my life.

I'm so sorry about your eyes but I am hopeful SSI will be helpful in your financial situation.

I love you, my sister. And I'm praying.

Angie said...

I am so glad that you have been able to visit with your sister! There is nothing LIKE IT!

I will be praying for your health and financial needs---for both of you! God is able!

There are many times we feel like our prayers are not being heard--but they ARE! He has "His TIMING" which is not always in our time table...but He is ever faithful to His own. And YOU are HIS OWN!

I love you dearly!

Sorry I've not been able to visit in the past several weeks---many changes! I'll share with you via e-mail!
