God is so GOOD!

♥ On this Thankful Thursday I'd like thank God for healing me. Yes, it's been 5 days now since I've had a migraine headache and my TMJ is so much better. I'm shouting out praises to God!!! Thank you sweet Jesus! I am thankful that we have a heavenly Father that loves us and cares about all the details of our lives! Also, thanks to all of you for your prayers and encouragement these past couple of weeks.

(This is me praising God with Blonde hair and glasses, only graphic I could find quickly!)

♥ I would like to thank God for helping my son and daughter in law sell and buy a new home in less than two weeks. With the housing market the way it has been, this is nothing short of a miracle! They desperately needed more space with their 3rd child on the way, and God answered our prayers in a marvelous way.

♥ I'd like to thank God for continually watching over my children, especially Joseph who now lives on the other side of the world. He loves Taiwan, his students, and his life there. I'm so grateful for God's continual protection over him while we are separated by so many miles.

♥ I'd like to end today with a prayer request for all of the families that have been affected by these latest rounds of tornadoes, earthquakes, cyclones, and all of the other natural disasters that have occurred both here and abroad. We are truly living in perilous times. I pray the Lord will raise up an army of intercessors for needs that surround us daily.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Let's join some other grateful hearts over at Sting My Heart.

PS. I just got a call from a very close friend, and her daughter was in an accident today and lost a finger. I'm heading to the hospital now to meet them for surgery tonight. Please agree with us things will go well, and there will be no infection and God would be with this family! Thanks so much♥

I'll also pray for that family you mentioned. That's really scary, I'm so happy you'll be there with them.

Hey, speaking of wild weather.. did I tell you we had an earthquake here in Mississippi? Yep, just a little north of Tupelo. It was only a 3.1 (or something like that) but still and earthquake in Mississippi is SOMETHING!

I'll be joining you in prayer as well as you gather with your friend at the hospital.

Praying that the Peace of God...passeth ALL understanding.

I love the graphic, you look HOT!!LOL
By the way, I just visited another (blog) woman whose son is suffering from a re-occurrence of a brain tumor. I gave her your site info. Of course you might already be "friends" and I am just butting in.

I hope your friends daughter is alright, I'm sure it is a comfort to have you there. Also, I hope you are enduring the bad storms OK. I am praying for you!!


Cheryl said...

Tiffany Stuart said...

Wow, as always I am touched by your love and thankful heart.

YOU are someone I am thankful for. I didn't have time to do a deep and meaning TT today, but if I did. You'd be on my list.

Your prayers are felt. Thank you.

Peggy said...

Praising God with you for how GOOD HE IS...sorry it lasted 5 days@

Bless you, Susan for your sweet, positive spirit...and grateful attitude! It's a blessing to see
someone care so deeply for others!

I'm aMazed that all went so well in the House sale & new purchase!
How grand! and also His DIVINE protection. How marvelous!

May God be with you and your friend with her daughter so that
all goes well and there isno further infection or any problem, in Jesus Name! Thank you for lifting up all the natural disaster
victims & crying out for intercessors on their behalf! May God protect and save us all!

Tammy said...


God has led me to your website, I just know it. I posted on Marybeth's this morning, and Kelly from Aroma of Joy posted on mine and told me of yours. See, my son Nick has just found out he has his 5th brain tumor. His surgery is next Wednesday, the day before his 13th birthday. It has been a 6 - year journey that just keeps having highs and lows....honestly, many more highs than lows, but you know the roller coaster. Please go to my blog when you have time and see my sweet Nick. I love you even though we have never met. Love, Tammy

LAURIE said...

I am just now getting to checking out some of my favorite blogs (we've had ordination and high school graduation this week!) but I wanted to stop in and say PRAISE THE LORD for your testimonies! I am glad to hear your headaches have been healed! -blessings, Laurie

e-Mom said...

Wonderful praises! Especially your healing from migraines. I trust you're still pain free. Yes, He does care about every single detail of our lives. :~D

Also, PTL for the quick sale of your son's house. THAT is a major blessing too, especially in this market.

(Sorry for being so slow to comment. I read your psot in Bloglines but had to whiz out the door. We're on the home stretch to our daughter's wedding in HI in June.)
