God is Merciful~

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
yea, our God is merciful.
* Psalm 116:5 *


Hello to you, my dear and sweet followers!
I'm popping in to leave you with a little up-date on mom.
She continues to jump over each hurdle that is placed before her
and is getting stronger each and every day. 
God is merciful!
Mom was in ICU a total of 27 days ~
that is serious cause for substantial physical impairments
muscle loss and weakness that can have a lasting effect,
but by the grace of God she is doing extremely well. 
While our days have been filled with therapy, doctor visits and just plain rehab
the spring and summer months have come and gone so very quickly
taking us into those cool autumn days and bringing with them 
the changing colors of our aspen leaves here in the Rocky Mountains.
I was beginning to think that it wasn't going to be a colorful year,
but oh my, each day has brought with it such glorious beauty.
Some of our doctor visits are a three hour drive,
but I'll take those drives any day just to see God's creation and beauty.
As of now, mom and I will be heading to Arizona October 9th.
I will stay with mom until the end of October and help with getting her settled
 then return home just in time for Stephanie's Tea Cup/Mug Reveal Party


Over these past three months you have so graciously gone before the throne of God
and prayed over my mother and our family
and for that, I am truly grateful!
Your many prayers have been heard and our Great and Loving God has been merciful.
He has bestowed His grace upon our family and carried us through 
Some difficult hours meeting our EVERY need.
May I ask for your prayers again on behalf of the surgeon who
did the Mitral Valve Clip procedure on mom?
Last week at mom's follow up visit this amazing Doctor (and Believer in Christ)
shared with us that he has pancreatic cancer. :(
My heart sank as I sat there looking and listening to this man
who has a young family and a life ahead of him now facing the battles of cancer.
His testimony of the Lord was awesome and he had a joy 
that was contagious.
He was one of the Instruments God used in saving mom's life,
now I wish to reach out on his behalf  to the many prayer warriors
and ask for prayer and a miracle in the healing of this wonderful Doctor.
When I say "miracle" I believe that what ever the outcome will be,
whether God heals him or calls him home to glory 
that will be the miracle God has in His marvelous plan.
Thank you, and God bless you!

"But we will give ourselves continually to prayer,
and to the ministry of the word.
* Acts 6:4 *

Be Gracious!

Beauty in the Garden ~

Life is incredibly beautiful.
Enjoy it with a grateful heart.

For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.

For tender grass so fresh and sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.

For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all the things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

More than anything, I must have flowers always, always.
~ Claude Monet ~
"Giving thanks always for all things 
unto God and the Father in the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ"
  ~ Ephesians 5:20 ~
Giving thanks for all things may not always be the easiest,
but take heart friends ~ God's perfect love will see you through 
all of life's circumstances.
Isn't it reassuring to know that our God will see us through
each and every circumstance of our lives?
In the eye's of God, everything matters to Him,
and through His tender mercies we are loved and looked after
in all His grace and glory.
I am going to be off line for awhile as I continue looking after the needs of my mom.
While she is doing extremely well, and the two of us have worked out a wonderful
schedule together, it is all so time consuming.
Mom is working hard with her therapy
so that she can get back to Arizona before the snow flies,
and here in the Rocky Mountains the snow can fly as early as September.
No, it doesn't usually stick around, but it can make it's appearance.
I will be the one taking mom to Arizona so I will be away traveling
and I see no need to worry about my blog posts.
I find visiting with each of you and corresponding with comments
quite relaxing and very enjoyable, but when my day is done, so am I. 🙄
I haven't had real time to respond to your comments and e-mails
to the extent that I would like to have and that bothers me,
so it would be better for the time if I just focus where I need to focus.
I will definitely be around for Stephanie's 11th annual Tea Cup Exchange!
Thank you, for your loveliness and the beauty that you all
so graciously share here in our blogging community.
Much Love and BIG Hugs to you!

Be Thankful!
~ Debbie ~
