Up-Date on my knee ~

Parker Adventist Hospital's Mission statement ~
We extend the healing ministry of
Christ by caring for those who are ill
and by nurturing the health of the
people in our communities.
We have Christian Care Ministry as our insurance
and the orthopedic surgeon I chose to use was in Denver
3 hours away,  but oh my was it worth the drive and time
to have this knee replacement done with my orthopedic Doctor
and through the Adventist Hospital.
I was quite impressed with every aspect of this hospital. 

This picture greets you as you enter the doors to pre-op.
When I saw it, I felt surrounded by the peace of God
as I looked upon Jesus holding the hand of the surgeon.
Many of you were praying that the Great Physician would direct
the hands of the Doctor and it was as if God was visually showing me those prayers
through this beautiful photo.
God can touch our hearts in ways that we least expect.
The evening before surgery I received a message from a precious
Blogging friend.
She said ~ "I know He will command His angels to watch over you"...
I was so wrapped in the arms of my Precious Savior
and had an amazing peace throughout the whole ordeal,
and still do.
Our God cares!

This is me...
No lipstick, face cream, perfume, lotion, powder, hair styling products, jewelry,
just the bare necessities, and I mean bare.😉
Every nurse who looked after me was gentle and respectable
with such compassion and loving care.
Thank you Jesus!

My dear friends...I am without words really,
as I express my hearts gratitude for your love, care, concern
 and especially your prayers.
Through prayer,  supplication,  and thanksgiving we can realize
a "peace"... which will surpass all understanding"
and will know that this peace "will guard our hearts and minds."
"Be anxious for nothing,  but in everything by prayer
and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, 
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. "
~ Philippians 4:6-7 ~
Thank you for thinking of me with your letters, cards, e- mails,
prayers, love and concern.
My heart is truly blessed beyond...
Because of your faithful prayers I am doing GREAT!

I have gone through 2 knee replacements, one partial and one total. The most important thing to do is the physical therapy. Makes a world of difference in recovery. Glad to hear it is going well.

I can only imagine the Peace of having a surgeon and staff that are praying for you. I will be praying for a speedy recovery and healing and that He will give you such joy as you continue on this journey. Sending love and prayers your way!

Dearest Debbie,
How overjoyed I am to see your new post as I refresh your blog (I have had the tab up in my browser to check for updates) :) ....Oh, dear friend, I am filled with such joy in my heart to know what amazing hands you were in and that all is well and you are doing wonderfully!! I am so thankful to hear this news and to God for answering the fervent prayers of all who have been thinking of you.
I was so blessed by your mention of the verse♥ and must say again what delight it was to my heart knowing the reminder of it could add to the beautiful peace the Lord has given you through this.
I also felt so happy to see "The Great Physician" painting you shared and thinking of how the Lord so lovingly let it cross your path. So beautiful. It is one of my most favorite artist's renderings because of the power it has in comforting and reminding us of the One whose care we are really in.

And might I say how beautiful you are, no makeup or hairstyling needed at all- your radiance shines!!♥

Thank you so much for this most beautiful message. I am so happy to read your update this evening and will be continuing in prayer for you in your healing!
My love and hugs to you!

He is a good, good Father, isn't He? What a beautiful praise report! His hand was guiding you in every decision you made, there is no doubt. Thank you for keeping us up to date and will look forward to more wonderful reports as you recover. And by the way, if I looked as good as you do with any of those things you said you were without, I wouldn't need to use them at all! Prayers continue for quick healing! ♥BIG HUGS♥

Thank you for sharing this with us. I love going to hospitals that exemplify the healing hands of Christ.
