We recently received a box of expensive medicine as we prayed for my husband to be healed after a critical issue in his health. I have discussed this journey we have been traveling since October 5, 2017. This picture of the box captivated me with the words, “Ship to” with his name and address in place. I woke up praising and this box came to mind as a symbol of how Jesus uses people, places and things to show His miracle of healing coming forth. God blessed us to enter 2018 with a new song of hope and the joy of being healed.
The time of day when I just need to use my strategy of “Smile” I am reading some words of encouragement and listening to the Christmas Song, ” Go tell it on the Mountain.” I can only imagine who God has on the wall with me waiting for my story and my song. #WWOW 23:28
I was moving some papers and I caught a glimpse of the magazine, Spirit , Fall 2017. I sat down to browse because I always enjoy looking for people who are featured in the many events around the Mid-South. I am impressed by how much information is covered with the pictures and articles. I was surprised to find myself in one of the pictures and decided to feature it in one of my 100 word posts and to thank Ms. Minerva P. Little and the staff for the wonderful work to inform us of events. I appreciate and learn from each issue.
This is the 21st day since finding ourselves in ICU with the diagnosis of heart/ lung involvement. We sometimes use the word surreal without even knowing the definition. I found these definitions worked for me as I remember the episode which I call “walking in the shadows of death.” It was a “weird dreamlike” situation that we have been able to step through these last 21 days. On this day of new mercies we have declared as in Psalm 73:2, “But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped. Our Real God Reality!
I am at the close of this September day. My family and friends have been very kind to call to offer sympathy because this is my GirlMic’s date of birth. She died two years ago on September 1, 2015 and they have called to encourage me and share pictures of the beautiful life she lived for fifty one years. I know offering sympathy is one of those times in life where words are never enough so I share this family picture to offer my sympathy to the many people who will find themselves sitting on the front pew.
I visited Redemption Life Church because it is close to my home and I have known the Pastor and the Church family for many years. I was impressed with his Title and Text so it is my focus for my 100 words. I am a caregiver and I attend church based on how my husband needs care so I am blessed to have the opportunity to fellowship. The Title, “Paint The Town Red” and scripture from Joshua 6: 20-23 gave me insight on how God positions us to be in place for prayer and praise. We must be ready “when the trumpet sounds”
When I get with survivors and hear their awesome stories, there is a dignified and delightful atmosphere. I heard truth telling as I sat in the University of Memphis Holiday Inn listening to women and men discuss how their purpose was born out of their experiences in the cancer community. We received beautiful gifts at the end of this wonderful Komen Survivor luncheon. We were blessed and I am glad I was able to encourage and cheer these dignified survivors who shared their victories. One of the highlights was meeting my table mates and seeing the smiles.
