Ok, I haven't been doing much in the way of painting lately as I've been dealing with this balance problem I've had for over 2 months now. You may remember I fell and hit my face between the eyes. There's been several falls in the house where I was near a chair so it broke my fall. The last fall was terrible, fell flat on my torso hitting my tummy and my left knee. The knee swelled up immediately, and bruised from the top all the way down to the ankle...and boy did it hurt...now that I can see the "replaced knee" has a huge knot on top...gotta go get an xray to make sure I haven't damaged it beyond repair. My sister, Mary was talking about a Sanctuary within our hearts or a place we can go to be alone with God to pray and worship HIM. I've found my sanctuary in my living room before anyone gets up, not even the dogs. I can read my Bible, them pray to God for guidance in all things, but most of to give thanks for our Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally, and gives us the answers to many of our questions. I think back at the times I was able to go visit my sister, and her family, and she would be up, and out on the back porch reading and praying before anyone was stirring around. I feel so blessed to have my sister who encourages me with her awesome blog. My prayer life is thriving, and my soul sings with love for my Father!!!
I wanted to share with you all that my first daughter who wasn't in my life until she found me many years ago. We did the visiting back and forth then she didn't contact me for more years than I care to count. Just days ago I received a call from my beautiful daughter, Jenifer and you can only image how joyous it was to hear her voice. Well she and her hubby, Kim have 4 boys, and 4 grandchildren, and in Jan she and Kim will be coming from AZ to visit us!!! It's as tho all those years have dwindled away...we are keeping in touch and I'm thanking God for yet another miracle in my life.
