From Heather's Post This Morning

I hope it is ok to do this....if not....let me know...since I borrowed it from Heather

Count your blessings, name them one by one…July 18th, 2007
I had an entire post written out on how many times Satan tried to bring me down yesterday, but instead I am going to list my blessings and forget about the rest.
I am alive.
I have loving and super supportive parents who would do anything for me.
I have a husband who dearly loves me, and tells me so often.
I have 3 beautiful children
I am amazingly gifted in web design, although I have chosen not to do it right now.
I have so many friends, too many to count.
I have an amazing best friend, Laura. She blesses me daily.
I know my savior loves me, even in my darkest times.
I have come to realize that being a Christian doesn’t equal being a doormat, and forgiveness is a long long journey. And thats okay.
I have a church family who honestly blow me away.
I have cancer, but it doesn’t have me.
Choose to start this day looking at your blessings. Trust me, Satan wants nothing more than to steal your joy. Today you have a clean slate, so to speak….
Choose wisely what you fill it with!

Edited to add:I received an email just now pointing me to another cancer blogger who is struggling with the concept of how God could forsake her. If you have a moment, please visit Minerva and leave her a comment. She really could use some encouragement today, especially today. Thanks.

Donna , I sent a msg to Minerva, I hope I didn't sound too preachy -- just that the only "real" hope is in Christ --- she will scan it first and if she approves , she will post it on her site --

Will remember her in prayer --

I don't think I could handle things as well as some of these people --

Great post, Donna!

Passing-thru...Even if she doesn't post it, just remember...SHE READ IT!

Donna , I just copied Claire's post on Jim and her fine words to the Lord -- and posted them on Minerva's site - her words will positively affect Minerva --

passing-thru said...

Thx Heb for the encouragement - your right -------

Terry said...

Passing-thru...I just didn't know what to say, so I am glad you did.
I just said Hi more or less!
Maybe she will visit us at the Pilgrims because as usual I forgot to sign out but that is OK...From Pp Terry

I don't think I could handle what Heather, Arlene, Pilot-dad and Minerva are going through either Passing-thru!
They are real troopers!

passing-thru said...

Yes Terry - I could not handle alot of things these people have and are ------- but thx also for the uplift -- I pointed her (Minerva) to Christ in a roundabout way , gentle at first and made it clear that thru all of the things we face in this world , they are designed to bring us to GOD, THRU CHRIST who died to make us right in HIS SIGHT -- so hopefully she posts it and as Heb said - she will have at least read it -- a cup of cold water is nice but a cup of cold water in HIS NAME is NICER ------
