Psalm 41 came to my mind...

I thought  "I hate when a scripture comes to mind and you look it up and it says woe to you...death cometh...so and so begat..."


But I looked it up anyway...and couldn't believe my eyes...I immediately began reading it aloud to hubby:

Psalm 41

 1 Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
      The Lord rescues them in times of trouble.
 2 The Lord protects them
      and keeps them alive.
   He gives them prosperity
      and rescues them from their enemies.
 3 The Lord nurses them when they are sick
      and eases their pain and discomfort.
Though hubby was driving he looked at me and said the classic question: "are you crying?"

me: "Yep!"

Hubby: "Sissy"

I was crying because GOD LOVES ME!  He loves me enough to whisper His words, He gives me comfort, He knows I am scared and He gives me HIS WORD!

May is National Stroke Awareness month. As a stroke survivor everyday is "stroke awareness" day.  Period.

On days where there are consults...appointments for more tests...

I am GRATEFUL that the LORD gave me His very Spirit so that I can KNOW how much HE LOVES & cares for me (and you).
