Thankful Thursday

On September 5th, I had a stroke, which has changed my life in some ways, but , I feel it was changed for the better. I feel that I have been dancing through my life, every since the stroke happened on Labor Day. I have the greatest dance partner, He has many names, Healer, Great Physician, Savior, but, I call Him Jesus.  He is very light on His feet, and is constantly lifting me off my feet, and carrying me. He has taught me much about this dance we have been doing together, my life dance. He has taught me how to roll with the punches, twist and shout through the good times, keep my head up, and eyes totally focused upon Him, my life partner. He has promised to never let me down, and if I start to fall, He will quickly be there to pick me up. This morning at 10:15, I have an appointment with my neurologist to find out the results of my recent MRI. What will I find out? Is my brain still swelling? Is that blocked artery in my brain still 100% blocked?  Are there other blocked arteries in my brain? I have no clue, but that is ok. My dance partner knows, and He will be right by my side at the appointment. Whatever news I find out, I am still looking forward to many more dances, with my Jesus.

I would wish you good news this morning but it sounds like you've already received the good news, that is Jesus our Saviour. You will certainly have a blessed morning. :)

Ahhh Denise!!! You keep on dancing with Him no matter what!!! This brings JOY to my heart... may He be with you as you continue this detour on your journey and encounter more Shortybear Dance moves!

Your questions of wondering are ever so REAL but you show no doubt in whom You believe. Sept. 5th until this day, you have lived for Him, and long before, you have been shining Jesus! Shine on sista and rock on!

He knows every move you make and everything is in His hands. Christmas JOY lives through us living for Him! You do and I thank God for you!

Love,
Peggy
You know I'm praying and dancing with you and Him!!!

Isn't it amazing what God brings us through with such JOY! Before my back surgery I thought I was going insane with pain... After the surgery I couldn't stop laughing! God is so good! All the time!

Merry Christmas!
