Gifts of silver and gold




Things are moving along quite quickly now, I am trying not to get too overwhelmed with all the little details.
The kids will be coming up Christmas night...Please pray for their safe journey.
You would think that I would be getting really nervous right  about now, but
the closer we get to Thursday, the more anxious I am to get it over with so that I can return home and begin the recovery process!
I should be kept in the hospital overnight, and return home Friday.
I hope to be able to type (legibly) soon after, so that I can post on here soon.
I am looking forward to time with family this week, so I probably will not be back on here until after surgery, so I would like to wish you all a very Blessed Christmas & a Happy New Year now!
And when I look under the Christmas tree this year, I see a big beautiful gift wrapped in silver...It has my name written on it, and it is the gift of LIFE!
Thank you my Father for this gift this Christmas...And thank you for the gift of Jesus given to us on that very first Christmas day! That is the gift I see wrapped up in Gold...The gift of ETERNAL LIFE!



Blessings & Love,
& remember, we are...
~NEVER FORSAKEN~

Praying for a speedy recovery for you Lisa. And that the weather with holds out so you can celebrate Christmas with your family. Looks clear today, the roads should be clean by now.

Merry Christmas! Was thinking of you while I prayed just before sleep. God is with you... what a perfect season to remember this truth even more so- Immanuel! So happy your children are on their way home. So wonderful to know your fears are not their about the sx...but, yet your heart and spirit are focused on what the Healer is always and during the recovery time. Take your time to rest up both physically and emotionally and then do update us on your recovery as we care for you. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOUR HOME! love, deanna

Hi Lisa, my dear sister in the Lord,
I too will pray that your children will have a safe journey. Have a lovely Christmas and amen to praising the Lord for the wonderful gift of eternal life. I loved the reminder in Deanna's comment of Immanuel - God is with us. This is so true, wherever we might be and whatever trials we may be going through.
God bless you and your family.

Lisa,
I read your story on Chelle's blog. I wanted to drop by and let you know I'm praying for peace and quick recovery from surgery. My mom was just diagnosed with breast cancer as well, so I will pray for you as she goes through treatment as well.
