Thankful Thursday

Hello everyone, I have really missed doing thankful thursday. My heart is overflowing with gratitude to still be here, that is possible only because of my precious Father God. This year has been rough, my health has taken some hard knocks. Actually, my heart, soul, mind, and body have taken some major knocks. I am now battling an eating disorder, smaller than I have ever been my entire life. The Doctor said if I do not get it under control, I will die. Well, I refuse to accept that. My Father God has much more in store for me, I have work to do for His Kingdom. I am not leaving until He comes to get me, in His time. I am determined to get better, and be better than ever. My strength comes from the ultimate power source, He is strong while I am weak right now. He is carrying me for the moment, together we will be victorious. This is just another part of my journey, looking forward to what my Father is going to teach me. I love you all. Remember, count your blessings, not your problems.

Excellent, Denise! Love the attitude and the blog design that goes right along with it! See here, He is doing something new! "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:15 When others (even Doctors) would consider something a loss, our God says, "I am doing something NEW!" I see the "way" or the "Road" springing forth from the wilderness! It's exciting!! I'm strapping in too, because He's certainly up to something!! And we know it will be GOOD! Because He is good! :)
Love and hugs!!

Denise! I was never so shocked or so excited as I was to read your name and your comment on TT post! What a gift that was for me today to "hear" from you! Thank you! That made my morning. I take it you are feeling better to be able to do this. I am so glad; so thanful. Yes, I am a very busy bee. Loved the "buzz buzz". Thanks for the laugh. Keeping you in my prayers. You are in the same boat with my Daddy, rowing side by side. Praying you both can eat. My word verification is "moreme" so maybe it is a sign... that there will be more of you! LOL
