HOW BLESSED WE ARE

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Many times I am emoticon emoticon about my situations.
Why should I?
I am 84, my doc says I look good for 84 and am in good health for 84. emoticon
Seven years ago I was so heavy, was a caregiver and took care of my husband more than myself.
As you can see by my before and after pictures there is quite a difference.
My blood sugar was better, cholesterol better, blood pressure better everything better after losing a lot of weight.
Then I hurt my knee. And guess where? At the gym emoticon
In March of this year I had a TKR and have just a thin white line showing where I had it.
Now I was supposed to have the other one done in August and they had to postpone it. I waited and waited and felt emoticon for myself. This doctor is so good he has a lot of patients. I wouldn't want one who got you in the same day you wanted it. emoticon

TODAY I SAW PEOPLE IN WORSE SHAPE THAN ME AND ALL YOUNGER THAN I.
First my pastor's wife in Mexico needs prayer, her son who I met at the border begged me to pray for him and his family. All of these were like my kids and grandkids.

THEN I WENT TO EAT and I saw a lady who looked like she might be in her thirties. I noticed she was limping and noticed she had an artificial leg.
I felt like emoticon not for me and my selfishness but for her and those so much younger than I.

The realization came to me I should practise what I preach. Live a positive emoticon life. Keep a emoticon on my face and emoticon
for those less fortunate than I.

God has me here for a purpose. May I fulfill that purpose and be led by His
Spirit and be patient with His timing.
