A refund?? I am thankful.


How often to medical companies refund if you overpay. I thought I did, but I didn’t have proof handy so when they sent me another bill. I called because I was told I was now paid in full. To my surprise they are sending me a refund. The hospital did that too when  my charity covered my recent stay and ER visits. When I was approved I got it back. I am used to fighting for my refunds.

Today I am thankful.

To my followers.


I am grateful for each and every one of you. I am afraid that I can’t read each and every post and many I miss. I am sorry for that. I thank you for reading my posts anyhow. I feel blessed to have you all as friends, not just followers.

Praise the Lord and I am thankful that:


I am finally regaining my cognitive skills slowly but surely. I can type pretty good now again.

I can add and subtract and know which hand is which.

Thank you Lord for allowing this to return. Praise the Lord.

He Died on the Cross For Us

By Teresa Smeigh

Little by Little!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Exodus 23:30 NKJV

Little by little I will drive them out from  before you, until you have increased.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you just can’t get past certain challenges, take heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It may seem as if the progress is slow, but be assured, the Lord is doing a thorough job helping you overcome your difficulties.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Thank you Father for teaching me so thoroughly. I trust your timing and your training of me.

Amen

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! I Corinthians 6:23

Paying for yesterday


As some of you read I walked yesterday more than my doctor has recommended and that I can do without major pain the next day.

Sure enough last night into this morning the pain has been tremendous. I couldn’t get comfortable in bed. Every movement brought pain and I have no real pain meds. I use Ibuprofen and Meloxicam.

I am thankful not to be in a wheelchair, but unless things improve that option will be coming down the road. I am working on the 5 minute walking in the hopes of improving some of these joints so I can use them without major pain. I would like to walk again. I spent our time at Disney World in a wheelchair as that was entirely too much walking at once. The dash across the airport 4 times was no fun either. I was so far behind and dragging slower and slower. Here I am walking and dragging a walk-on suitcase and a tote bag. Kids couldn’t help, they had their own to worry about.

Love,

Tessa

The Purpose of your Trial!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:10

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whatever you are facing right now you can be sure there is a higher purpose to it. It is no accident that you are experiencing what you are today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

God doesn’t do anything without a purpose.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Help me Father to discover the purpose of my trials and tribulations.

Amen

Glory in his Image!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:49

Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

His objective is to conform you to his likeness. This more important than other things although he may provide them as well.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t degrade and devalue yourself because of the situation you find yourself in, trust in God to make you glorify in his likeness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Father,

Help me Father to be like you and follow in your likeness.

Amen
