life is good...

First I want to thank all of you for your prayers, concern, phone calls, emails, offers of meals and other help. I appreciate it more than you know.

My shoulder has improved, but has a way to go yet. I went to the doctor yesterday. He tried to move my shoulder to a place it was not ready to go, and I screamed in pain. I was shocked at myself for screaming, but oh, it was really painful! He said I am not ready for physical therapy yet. I go back in a week.

Life has been interesting lately. Full of change, my injury, big inconveniences, lots of opportunities to grow in holiness. None of which I would have chosen. What I do choose each and everyday is for God's will to be done in my life. Therefore, anything that comes my way, I believe must have God's approval, that He must be allowing it for the benefit of my soul, this brings me comfort. So during this time and other times like these, I will try not feel sorry for myself, I will try not to worry and I will ride the wave and trust in God! He is in control!


on to other good stuff...

Our children gave my husband and I an extravagant gift this Christmas. They have never done anything like this before and were so excited they could barely keep it a secret. They gave us a night out on the town last night!


First we went here for dinner, my very favorite place. We then had a little time and went here, where we skimmed books and sipped these. Then we went ot see this!


It was a wonderful night! The show was amazing! We needed that, and oh what perfect timing!

What a wonderful gift! No wonder they had a hard time keeping it a secret.

we continue to pray for your healing. God does work to teach us patience, doesn't He?

Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. You put into words exactly what I needed to hear!

Peace & Blessings!
