Thankful Thursday

We it is a lovely day, I spent it deep cleaning, and doing laundry, yesterday I went to my class, they explained all things that will happen, I am very informed now, and feel a true peace over me, I am
assured that God's hand will be upon the surgeon's and on me, I appreciate all the prayers, and I
more than likely will not post any more before I have the surgery, so all my praying friends keep me in prayer on Monday, all I know it will be early, and I will be getting up before the day is over, now that is great, I
think, lol, my old bones would set up if I stayed in bed too long so I really was glad to hear that they will
be getting me up and about the day of the surgery. Then each day I will walk and do therapy until my goals they set for me are accomplished, then I can come home, that is the goal I want to make.

Tomorrow I will strip my bed sheets, and put all new one on my bed, then will finish doing the laundry and trying to get some meals made up for my precious husband. He is my coach and will be with me through most all things I will do, thank God for a strong and loving husband, God indeed has blessed my life.
I do want to make that good Sausage Roll for him, and freeze it, that will keep him eating for a while in the mornings. Saturday we have our ladies meeting at church, I will be giving the devotion and ask your prayer
for this also, it has been a while since I spoke in front of a women's meeting. Pray God will be glorified in all I say, and that he will lead me in my thoughts and my speech. Then of course Sunday, our day of worship, and I will not do much else that day, will kinda rest up for the big journey on Monday. So those are my plans
and my thoughts, and I do pray that each of reading will walk a little closer to the lord the next few days, and pray more, and give him a little bit more time of your life. I am indeed thankful for the blessings God gives me
daily, and I do not hesitate to say, I know that he will be with me on Monday, and his hand upon me, and his voice whispering his word in my ear, he promised me, he sail, Lo I will be with thee always, and that is in
the operating room too, amen..Have a blessed day, weekend, and I will get back to say hi to y'all as soon as I can. here is just a little goodie cause I love ya, enjoy, and God bless you real good.

Hi Barbara,
So nice to meet you, and thanks so much for coming over and befriending me. So sorry to hear you are having surgery on Monday, but will sure pray
the Lord directs the surgeons hands,
and keeps you in sweet peace, along with your hubby.
Congratulations on your Anniversary.
50 Years, that is quite an accomplishment, good for you!!
and what a great testimony of God's goodness in your lives. I love to see couples who are married a long time, and they are enjoying not eduring their relationship. That is a blessing to all who know you.
We will be married 40 yrs. in Nov.,
and we have a great marriage, and all praise goes to Jesus for that!!
We do marriage classes and also do some counseling, lately we have been getting a lot of young married couples, so we have sort of been mentoring too, and we are loving it.
Well, look forward to reading your blog when you get well, will sure pray for a speedy recovery.
Blessings to you and yours,

Hello Barbara,

Pleased to meet you! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.

I saw the note on your sidebar that you and your husband have been married 50 years! Congratulations on your anniversary! That is such an awesome accomplishment!

You sound like you have a great attitude toward your pending surgery. I will be praying for you, your husband and the doctors and nurses. It sounds like you are blessed and have a wonderful husband who is helping you through all of this. I will also pray that God uses you to deliver a message that speaks to each of the women at your ladies meeting.

Thank you for the Pumpkin Dump Cake recipe!

That's a recipe I'll try for our domino group. And, I'll be keeping you lifted in prayer Monday, knowing He has provided the strength and comfort necessary for that day. Will continue to pray for healing when you're through. God bless and keep you.

Hi Barbara,
Thank you so much for your visit and sweet note. Dave's RA is caused by his Ulcerative Colistis. Which is also an inflamatory illness. He has had half of his colon remove but the illness is now in the other half. So the treatment he is on is for both illnesses. Right now is on Remicade Infusions every 6 weeks and a very strict diet. They are either going to go giving him the infusions every 4 weeks or switch him over shots every 2 weeks. It is a balancing act with having 2 illnesses. He takes a box full of other things too. I will add you to our prayer book at church. I am so pleased to call you my new friend.
Youe Sister in Christ,

Dearest friend,
I had a total knee replacement done Jan. 8 of this year, so I know the pain you are going thru!!! Do not be afraid of taking the pain will need them! I had a few setbacks from the git go, but I can honestly say that I am thankful I had the surgery. (It took me a good while before i could say that!)
I should have the other one done, but it will be a while before I take that next step!
I will most definitely be praying for you! Thank God you have an awesome husband to help take care of you. I do not know what I would have done without mine. What a blessing to have him here. n sickness and in health really took on a new meaning for us!!!

Blessings and peace to you, dear Barbara,
