Thankful Thursday

Well today is infusion day here. In two hours or so the nurse will be here. It has been a real trying week of errors. Mine and others. Gotta tell you this one though. My soul is beside itself over a ticket I earned the day I left the neurologist. I had a hunch that it was in error. I saw the flash of the camera. Indeed my error. Sickened by the error and the financial hit I was in a way. The VERY next envelope I opened...
Was an unexpected refund from the orthodontist for a few more dollars that the cost of the ticket. I still have to attend the class for it. There may additionally be a cost to that. When I saw that check though I began to just cry. As my shoulders let down and the impressed presence of provision hit me. It was as being held so I could just let go and not even give it another thought. Shame yes over error. Yet Mercy in the very next instant gave me pause to embrace my humanity.
The errors of others that influenced my week were lightly received. The mercy I felt opening the check and matching the recovery of funds over the ticket flowed to others who made error. Many errors. I am human as are they. Flawed.

surly mercy and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life. I shall live in the house of the Lord for ever and ever and ever...

thanks for visiting, and your nice compliment to mom.
I hate those cameras and will NEVER live in a city that allows them. its HIGHWAY robbery plain and simple, half the funds may go to the company that operates them....

This has me with a smile, remembering when my Mom got one of those photos, you have to know my Mom and hear her voice, she handed me an envelope and my brother was visiting her at the time, I sat on her couch, and him laying on her floor like he always did after a GREAT meal, I opened it up and busted laughing, and he said "Let me see sis, let me see" as he's laughing cause I was busting up and Momma said "There I am, just as plane as day has light" you could see the front of the car and her, and the back of the car, we could picture her cruzing threw the light...he laughed so hard he had tears!!
God always provides for his children when theyre in need....

Hugs to all~

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
