Thankful Thursday

As we prepare to say goodbye to 2011, and hello to 2012, my heart is overflowing with peace, love, and much joy. It is all thanks to my precious Saviour. In 2011, I was sick for eight months, then had my stroke in September, and nearly died. There was alot of stress, sadness, and depression, for Eddie, and I both. Finances were a big problem, due to medical bills, it was a hard year. But, God never left me. He picked me up, and carried me, when I could not walk. He poured His strength into me. He constantly surprised us, with financial blessings, just in time, always right on time. I am truly looking forward, to the new year. We will be starting back to our old church, where all of my dear friends go. I see nothing, but good days ahead. The new year is looking so bright, I need a new pair of sunglasses, to face it. Woo Hoo!! Thank You Lord, I love, and appreciate You.
