We have so much to be thankful for…so much we just take for granted. Today is Sunday. A time for praises. In our home, the praises are many.
Thursday, the Dr. office called and told me that my other cancer medication had been approved by insurance. The nurse said she’d been trying to get the medication approved for another patient and it was denied. She was afraid it would be the same for me…but, she called in the request and it was approved immediately!!! The medication has been ordered and I should start it the 25th.
On Friday nite, a friend sent a message saying there was a kitty up on the highway bridge and she thought it could be Swirl kitty. I had seen Swirl earlier, so was pretty confident that it wasn’t him, but Mitzy has been out for several days. 1am saw us on the highway with flashlights looking. Wasn’t any of our herd or one I recognized from around the neighborhood. We have prayed for Mitzy’s safe return. She ran in when Ernie opened the door this morning!
Saturday, we attended a co-worker’s wedding in Santa Anna. We’ve prayed for years that a suitable Christian man would come into her life. Sam seems to fill the bill all the way around. By the time we got back home, I was so stiff and so in pain. Due to the Nexavar, I cannot take any aspirin, motrin, tylenol…no anti-inflammatories as I’m at risk for bleeding. I hate praying for myself, but I did send up a plea for the pain to be lessened to bearable. This morning, I got up feeling great and able to get around fine.
To the best of our knowledge, our family is all healthy and doing well. Our kitties are all accounted for and well. We’re employed, we have a roof over our heads, food in the pantry and freezers, and can still afford to run the AC.
Yes, I feel we’ve got a lot in our lives to be singing the Lord’s praises.
