God's Been So Good To Me

First I want to thank all of you for the very encouraging comments you have left, you have all blessed my heart, then I want to thank you for your prayers for me today. The fellowship was great, the devotional was truly inspiring, even to me, lol God is so good, he shows up and takes over, and it is a great time in him, with him, and by him, I do stand amazed some times in what he does with me, I am rather timid, and writing is great but standing in front of others and every one looking right at you, usually makes me feel uneasy, I did feel right at home today though. The food was so good, and we had so much too, all in all it was so good and a sweet time of prayer and fellowship, it was such a blessing to me.

Tomorrow is church, and I am looking forward to that, I do love going to church and worshipping the lord, he is so good, and we need to lift up the name of Jesus every chance we get, I am not
sure if I will have to miss any meetings or not, perhaps if I feel okay Wednesday and come, I will be up to going, if not I am sure Sunday.  So praise God Monday is a good day to have the surgery on, I thank you all for the prayers, and all the love you show, God bless you all very much, I will have a few days down to really pray and keep in constant touch with the lord, I am looking for ward to that too. No computer, just sweet fellowship with my lord.
 I came home give Zoie another bath, and then made my precious husband one of those Sausage rolls he loves, I will put it in the freezer and he can have them every morning while I am gone.
The kids are coming up to the hospital Monday too, and then Jim my eldest son, is going to take Zoie, our little dog, back home with him, that will be best for her, rather than leave her home alone all day with us being gone, Chuck wants to spend as much time at the hospital with me as possible, and it would not be fair to leave her alone so much, so I am happy about that too.
Oh yeah pray for brother Chuck, the Pastor asked him to preach tomorrow night, so hold him up in prayer too.

God sure is good isn't he, tell me how has he blessed you today?

I love this song, and it keeps going over in my head, I will leave you with this, and I hope you really think on what the words are saying.

God Is So Good To Me
I've had some bad days and I've had hills to climb
I've had some sad days and then a weary mind
But when I look about and think these things all out
All of the good days outweigh the bad days
And I can't complain

God is so good to me
He is so good to me
More than all this world could be
He is so good to me
His spirit came to me
And gave me victory
God is so good to me I can't complain

Sometimes the clouds hang low
And I'd like to see them go
Then I ask this question
Lord, tell me why so much pain?
But he knows what's best for me
Although I cannot see
I just say thank-you Lord
I can't complain

Your blog is such an encouragment to me. When I read your blog I feel right at home. Have a great week. Did you know it's National Flower week? I just found out another reason to praise God for his creation.

Barbara, I have not visited in a while, and have had a wonderful time reading your past posts and just praising the Lord! What a blessing your posts have been to me! I pray your surgery went well. With the great faith you have in the Lord, I am sure He will be right by your side all the time! I loved seeing your pictures of Tybee Island. I love that place, too, especially the wonderful sea food!
