Thankful Thursday -
To many times I find myself consumed with the struggles and challenges of life that I fail to see just how much my Heavenly Father loves me. In a world that will fail us in some way every day of our lives, it is so difficult at times to fathom in this little brain of mine that God's love for me is unconditional, unfailing and unwavering.
God has been sending me "love notes" through loved ones such as blogging friends, family members and even strangers! In the past few weeks I have received encouraging notes, prayers, CD's, monetary gifts, books, clothing, food, and even a little TV with a VCR attached!
Our gracious heavenly Father has reminded me through these generous and caring people that He will provide our needs!
My caseworker at the Welfare office is diligently working to get me approved for medical assistance. I believe without a doubt that I will receive this coverage. I have met some amazing people these past few weeks as I have been trying to get medical care. Some are people who struggling just like me too to get assistance and they are encouraging me to keep the faith! Some are doctors and nurses who have given me free medications to help me get by until my health care becomes approved!
So as I humbly sit here on this cold, rainy fall day, I am thankful that I have the warmth of my trailer; a loving husband who will do ANYTHING for me; a daughter who went out in this cold rain to get the ingredients to make homemade soup because I requested soup today; a son-in-law who will take out Kylee because it is difficult for me to walk this week; a grandson who even at 15 years old still gives his old grandma a kiss!; an 86 year old mother who will drive me to my appointments; family and friends who diligently pray for us on a daily basis; and most of all the unfailing love of my blessed Savior!
As I take a sip of my hot chocolate I think to myself....What more can a girl want?
I am truly Blessed!!!
