Ouch! Hallelujah!


Hey ya'll!


Well, I'm so thankful to have my surgery behind me now and thank you, sweet friends, for your prayers and words of encouragement!  Feeling better today, but woozy and sore....ouch! hallelujah! And only a little nauseous from the codine - yuk!   Surgery went well.....didn't have to have the more invasive procedure, PTL!  The impinged nerve in my elbow wasn't too deep and was easier to transposition....starting to get normal feeling back in my hand already...so thankful!! PTL!! Start P.T. next week to strengthen and regain use of my hand. 

I'm gonna take a break from posting for a few weeks until I can use both hands to type.....Typing this quick post with one hand took forever......I guess I'm a tad bit ambidextrously challenged (also a little drugged  up, too) lol!

You may see me stop by for a visit but probably not leave a comment until I can use my other hand.  But please know that I love and appreciate each of you and am praying for you and yours!

In closing..... I want to leave you with a scripture that stirred in my heart and encouraged me this morning and I pray it encourages you as well......

Do not fear,  O Zion;
do not let your hands hang limp.
The Lord your God is with YOU,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in YOU,
 He will quiet YOU with His love,
He will rejoice over YOU with singing!
Zeph 3:16-17  NIV (emph added)

Glory to God!  
He lifts us up, He never leaves or forsakes us, 
forever saves and protects us - our rock and mighty fortress, 
delights in us, quiets us with His tender love and mercies
 and 
rejoices over us with singing!!

THERE IS NO GOD LIKE OUR GOD!

He is Faithful!

Luv, Hugs and Sweet Blessings!

I saw the update about Lance. I'm saying a prayer for the family and thanking God that your surgery was successful. I have lived through a debilitating neuralgia and know how terrible the pain can be. Bless you.

Jacki,
Glad the surgery went well. Sounds as if I may need a similar surgery. naw...

Sorry to hear about you mom. The Lord is a great comfort in our affliction and our weakness. I hope I never forget how my blessed God has cared for me through the years...when I am older and weaker and vulnerable with age. God promises to never leave or or forsake us - I trust His promises.

The scripture that you shared here today is one of my favorite - because of the singing over me...how sweet a sound that is! He sings day and night over me - even in my sleep. I am His warrior princess. He delights in ME. Thank you for this reminder. I needed to be reminded of HIS SONG in and OVER me.

God bless you with total recovery dear soul!

God is indeed FAITHFUL!

Love you!
