Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

If I'm lonely and sometimes frightened.....

....how must hubby feel.

Prayers to my heavenly Father give us strength, as his Holy Spirit lives up to his name of COMFORTER.

And in the ever-helpful words of my daughter (as quoted), "This too shall pass."


  1. Focus on where he is, and what's happening for him there, and on the things you have. I know, it's always easier to say than do, but counting your blessings really does help.
    My friend would start a thankfulness list, any time there was sadness or tragedy. She went through the loss of a daughter, a major stroke her husband suffered, and the loss of a DIL at the birth of her grandchild. She never lost her faith that God was in control, and was a great spiritual example, as I'm sure you are, too.
    Thank you for being real and letting us know how to pray for you, God bless, pokey

  2. Have you read My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor? (there is a great TED video by her too)
    (can't post link--you can google her name and got lots of info)

    part of the book is personal --but she is a neuroanatamist, and know how the brain works.. and much of her book is about WHAT worked for her--(and she complained, much of what was offered was UNhelpful--and why)

    recovery from a stroke is slow progress, and it can be hard to remember that being able to take 2 mouthfuls of food today is progress if yesterday you could only take one.

    It is also a very spiritual book--her stroke helped her see the world in a totally new way...one more connected with higher forces (she does not advocate any one religion, but the sense of oneness and how oneness and love are how we connect to god.)


  3. I am glad you know the 'comforter'. He is all you say and more. My hubby is napping so I thought I'd run in here and get online for a bit. You are my first stop...smile. May every passing day bring you closer to getting your dh home again.


Thanks for stopping by !
