MORE - Goodness of the Lord

Some of you may get tired of hearing me talk about all my blessings, but truly it has nothing to do with me, it's just all about the God I serve and love.

I've written several posts now about my "fight" or "bout" with satan but I just have to share more about the blessings that I received.

This "episode" happened while I was surrounded with the love and care of my Monday morning Bible Study group. What better hands could I have been in? NONE!

Then. when Sandra heard about it, (she leads the Tuesday night Bible Study group in her home) she comes by to check on me. I was still completely out of it and not even aware she'd come but when Mickey shared that with me it just blessed me so much.

Then Tuesday evening, on her way to the Bible Study, which I had to miss for one of the few times :o( my friend, Wantha, comes by and brings me yummy, and I mean, YUMMY, chicken & noodles. Thank you, Wantha.

Then early Wednesday morning there is a knock on the front door and here stands Norma, from the Tuesday night group, with a sack of gifts for me and a card.

A picture with "In Everything Give Thanks" on the picture and all over the frame.

A lovely drying towel made by Sandra that hangs on the oven door.

A Christmas At Home Dessert Lover's Cookbook that Sandra gave each of us.

Didn't take a picture of the card but it was special with all their hand written greetings and even Wantha's admonition for "get better JOYCE". There is a private joke about that!!!! Having the last name Joyce I get called that a lot!!!

Romans 8:18 & 8:27 in action!!!!

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us."

Dear Susan
I pray that all is well with you.
I never get tired of your blog about THe LORD!
It is an inspiration to me.
Thanks for sharing

Seems to me that your card to me said, "Let there be showers of blessings!" I'm thinking God has you in mind for a shower as well! : ) You are loved. We never get tired of hearing of God's blessings.

Isn't it wonderful how God sends us reminders of His love through others! You are obviously loved - by God and others!

These God-given treats on earth that we call friends.
I'm so thankful you are surrounded by such caring and wonderful friends.
I know you wanted to get better just to get back to your Bible Study. That gift was so pretty. Loved the picture and the towel was so pretty.
