Day 239- Thankful for a bunch of things in spite of difficulties

This has been a rough week for me. And yet, as always, God has sent so many blessings. Every October for close to three decades I’ve experienced at least a day or two of depression. This year I’ve already had a few brief  run-ins with it, and we’re only halfway through the month. I apologize… Read More Day 239- Thankful for a bunch of things in spite of difficulties

Day 150- Thankful for medical workers, humorous moments :) , and order

Friday I found out that I have swimmers ear; who knew?  The doctor was a little puzzled (yes, I was actually seen in clinic!) because this is not the usual season for swimmers ear, and also, there was no apparent oozing that should accompany the condition.  But, if you’ve been following me for a while,… Read More Day 150- Thankful for medical workers, humorous moments 🙂 , and order

I knew I was saved by… Read More Day 84 – Thankful for God’s favor, delight, and good will toward us

Day 63 – Thankful for medicines and pain relief ointments

Chronic pain came to live with me a long time ago, uninvited, of course. (I’m not complaining, just explaining.) It started with headaches from heat exhaustion, moved on to migraines, and at age 17 I started having chronic back pain. From the beginning I tried to tough it out or to use other methods of… Read More Day 63 – Thankful for medicines and pain relief ointments

Day 35 – Thankful that Jesus loves me even when others do or say unloving things

It’s been a good day, really! But you know how sometimes you can feel fine, but you have this little rock in your shoe that’s really bothering you, and you just have to stop asap and get it out? Sometimes that’s the way I feel about unkind things that people say. Maybe they’re not even… Read More Day 35 – Thankful that Jesus loves me even when others do or say unloving things
