In this world of craziness I hope you are finding time each day to reflect on God and his blessings that we sometimes completely look over. Many times I focus on the obstacles and forget about the small things that he does for me on a daily basis.
I will tell you about a big obstacle he brought us through 8 years ago. Some of you may know or may have prayed with me for healing for my husband Phil. To me he was one of the strongest and healthiest men I knew and was running Marathons, triathlons and in great shape prior to an illness that became one of his hardest battles. After months of testing, 128 vials of blood drawn, procedures and many prayers he received his diagnosis. We finally had an answer, A rare disorder that would put him on lifetime medications, yet here we are 8 years later and he is doing awesome. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
As a nurse I want to fix everything and help everyone. But that obstacle helped me to realize I am not in control of anything. It made me realize I needed God more than ever.
Maybe it was just a stepping stone to rely on God because tougher things were on the way like…
the loss of a grandchild
a son joining the military
4 surgeries for myself in just 6 short months
a son who had emergency back surgery that is still waiting on God’s healing touch…
Maybe it was so I could rely on him more (I do that now more than ever)
Maybe it’s so I could blog this today so you could read it and realize wow, if God brought them through that and they still serve him what I am going through can be overcome if I hold to his hand.
Maybe it’s so we all realize It won’t always rain, the sun will soon shine again
Maybe it’s so I would appreciate everything the sweet man God gave me does for me (that’s a lot of stuff)
I always get into things and he always helps me. So while I am thanking God for him today I will show you one of our latest projects that he helped me with.
I have been wanting a chandelier over my bathtub for a while. We were at an antique store and found one.
He even put a dimmer switch on it for me. I absolutely love how it turned out.
There’s nothing more relaxing then taking a bubble bath with this light shining down on me and HIS light shining within me.
Tonight while I am lying in bed beside the man that I wasn’t sure would still be with me, I thank God for him and ALL the little things. I hope you do the same.
Blessed Beyond Measures,
