Thankful Thursday

  I am thankful for my hearing, I truly thank God for blessing me with two ears, by which I am able to listen, and hear , such precious sounds. May I never take the gift of hearing for granted. I love hearing the cries of a new born baby, children playing, church choirs singing the praises of God, on a Sunday morning. My husband whispering into my ear,"You are beautiful, and I love you." Sitting at a wedding, hearing the couple, exchange sweet wedding vows. My great nephew, little man, saying"Come on Aunt Nesie, let's play." God, saying, "You are my beloved daughter, I will never leave you, nor forsake you." And, of course, my sister Vickie, saying, "I love you more." Please, pray for my sister. She went to have a hearing test today, the news was bad. She has hearing loss due to her diabetes. There is over fifty percent hearing loss in her left ear, and sixty four percent hearing loss, in her right ear. They told her she needs to get hearing aids, as soon as possible, if she dosen't,  there is nothing they can do for her. She will lose the hearing in both of her ears. Even with a $1000.00 dollar off coupon, the hearing aids will cost her a little over $5000.00.  My sister is like me, she cannot afford that kind of money. I am going to get busy first thing in the morning, making phone calls. Trying my best, to get her some type of help.  This is breaking my heart, I cannot let my sister go deaf. She has been through so much already. Father God, please intervene, on my sister's behalf. She loves You so very, very much. My heart is crying out to You, help me, to help her Father. I love You, and I need You. Thank You Father, for listening.

OH MY! I will be praying for your sister. Have a fund raiser to help out. But in the meantime I'm believing God will touch and heal her ears in Jesus name. Yes! I would say hearing is a gift to be extremely thankful for.
Blessings

Oh, I'm so sorry about that, Dear. Praying for her healing, and that she can get some help. I wonder if you could write an article in the newspaper for help? Or a fundraiser at church? Love you, Dear ~

Has your sister tried the Lyon's club? They can sometimes help with needs like this. Of course I will pray for her.

Praise God you're willing to be her advocate to help with the hearing aid information. Praise God for the technology of hearing aids. I'll say a prayer Denise!

I am so praying for help for your sister. There is no reason they should cost that much... Praying for open doors to finding something reasonable...to finding help... Hugs!
