Good news...

Josie is going home today at noon!! Praise the Lord! I talked to my son this morning and he said she was doing great! I know so many of you were praying for her and you'll never know how much this has meant to me. What a great prayer line all made possible by blogs and blog friends that I've met here. It never ceases to amaze me! Just a couple of examples: Yesterday Jennifer sent me an email and prayed with me in the email! Then I got a comment from Karen saying she was praying for Josie. She asked me to stop by when I could and see her newly decorated blog. While I was having my morning coffee, I stopped in to see, and found that Karen was praying right there on her blog for Mary's daughter and for Josie, and I wept..a sweet release to me! Such an humble prayer that I know came straight from her heart to God's ears. While Karen has had some hardships of her own recently, she unselfishly cares for others. To me this is what Christianity is all about. We can sit on church pews Sunday after Sunday, but if we aren't uplifting each other in prayer or just a simple word of kindness along the way, what good are we doing?

A new bloggy friend, Betty at Country Charm, that I met just recently has given me
an award. She is a sweet lady and has become one of my daily habits! :o) Thank you, Betty, for this honor and for thinking of me as a best blogging buddy.

Mary%27s+Blogging+Award--From Betty

I want all of you to know you're the BEST and I want each of you to have this award. Please take this award and know that even though I'm not naming you all individually,
it comes from my heart and I ask God to bless my Bloggy Friends.

I am so happy the baby is feeling better! Aren't we blessed to have such wonderful blog neighbors that will keep us in their prayers!

Praise God that Josie is going to be okay. God definitely answers prayers.

I have missed your daily bloggings, Hope. You have had several interruptions in your life lately, and my pray is that things have not straightened out for you and your family. How is Dave doing?

Hugs,
Betty

Dear Hope, What an awesome God! I'm so happy for your good baby news. Those things just hold us in limbo, don't they? Thank you for the beautiful award. You are so sweet and thoughtful! I'm so happy we met through blogging. Love, Rachel

Good Afternoon Hope,
I just woke up from a nap a bit ago and saw your comment about Josie and I had to come and see what the news was. "PRAISE GOD" for answered prayers. GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!!!! I sure hope you get to feeling better and your son also. I tell ya, the way this weather is, it's a wonder everyone isn't sick or sicker. When I woke up, I started sneezing and don't feel too good myself. I can't afford to come down with anything as I have to be able to care for our girls. "THANK YOU" for the sweet words about me here on your post. I may not go to Church every Sunday like some people do, but I do LOVE GOD and I know HE LOVES me. I also know that he forgives me of my shortcomings. You know me, I have a big heart and we should be praying for everyone daily. "CONGRATULATION'S" on a very well deserved Award my friend. "THANK YOU" for passing it on to everyone as well. I will post about it tomorrow as I have another Award to post about. Mary made me a button for my awards page and I'm still working on getting that together. If I feel like it I may work on it later today. I have some errands to run here in a bit. My DH called me about an hour ago and said he wouldn't be home tonight. They have to do a relay for another team. He said he should be home sometime Friday tho. I hope you take some pictures of your Snow for me. LOL. They are saying we may have some freezing rain tomorrow. I'm thinking it will go North of us again. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great afternoon. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Dear Hope,

I am happy to hear about little Josie! Thank the Good Lord that she is better. I am sorry I have not been here in a while. I've been on a bit of a downer, but it is slowly passing. Thank you for your prayers for Anne.

Take care and God bless you and yours.

I'm so thankful the baby is better! My little grandson went through that a few months ago, they stuck him ten times and couldn't get the IV in! He was screaming so and my daughter was so upset.

Thank you for the award! And thank God for praying blogging friends!
