" My Humility "


First I have to give all of my Blogger friends many thank yous for all of your well wishes and prayers. It means so much to me and I want all of you to know how special all of you are. It really makes a difference in how I feel. And I am well aware of the power of prayer. It brings tears to my eyes just knowing that God hears us all!

I had all of my tests done. From what I understand, I won't know the results until sometime next week. The good news is that I do feel better today. The pain is still there but it has calmed down quite a bit. I am still hoping that it was just the aspirin and things will heal.

Whatever the case may be, I have a very strong faith. I have been through so much already in my life and I know that our Lord has not forgotten me but is showing me where my strengths are and how to use them to help others in some way.

Perhaps he is making me stronger so that I may have more patience with 14 year old young women! Or perhaps he is showing me that I can deal with anything including these hard times that our family is going through right now. Whatever the case may be, my faith in him leading me down this path only gives me hope for brighter days ahead.

But this post is about you really. Just knowing that all of you too have been through many of your own hard times is a blessing for me. I don't feel alone at all. And even though miles may separate us all, your prayers and thoughtfulness make me feel as though you are right here with me. That and my faith gives me more strength than I ever could have dreamed possible. And for that I thank you.

Oh, Diana, it is you that has enriched my life!
I actually remember your first comment to me thanking me for putting the song "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria" into your head! And I thought right away, I LIKE THIS GIRL! And then I came over here and I was hooked!

I'm so glad you're feeling a little better. And you know all the prayers and good wishes are a testament to the wonderful person you are.
I'm glad we all 'found' each other. And I think we are a good support system for each other, and that goes both ways, my friend! You are very good to all of us too!

Take care and make sure to let us know anything as soon as you know.
Love and Prayers,
Eileen

Crazy as it may sound, today I even bought the active culture yoghurt to start eating instead of just taking the pills, so I'm inspired to try good things because of you and hoping and praying that you will try them also (can't hurt...can only help).

It IS so wonderful that we all found each other and can pray for and uplift each other...God doesn't just shower us with blessings...He makes it rain cats and dogs on us!!!

blessings, hugs and prayers,

marcy

p.s. I was gone to prayer group followed by grocery shopping when you posted today.

Diana, like you I feel a special bond with my blogger friends and I am open and willing to share my life as you are. We have been drawn to each other for a reason and I think supporting each other is one of those reasons. No one goes through this world unscathed my friend and there are so many times I want to take away the pain of others but life doesn't work that way. You have given us all so much with your warmth and appreciation that it is easy to enjoy you, your post and your friendship. May the pain keep lessening and your problems be solved through yours, mine and our blogger friend's prayers.
We do care so much for you and I thank you for your kind words for all of us today. Stay well my friend, and if you need us, just post...:-) Hugs

Oh, Diana, I am not sure how I missed this blog, and I am so glad you are feeling better. I have been pray for you, and I know you have been through so much. We are all in this together, and I think that God brought us all together for a reason...we must hold one another up in prayer. Meeting you and all my blogger friends has been such a blessing, and I have grown stronger in my faith, and feel very close to you. (((HUGS Diana))) T.
