Thankful for little things...

Its been a long time since I have written post here, I do pop by now and again keeping up with my friends blogs.

Last night I had plenty of quiet time, and had time to reflect on things that have happened, are happening and what might come.
One unchanging thing in my life is the Lord God , what a mighty rock to be priveledged to be able to stand upon, and what ever is thrown in my path of life I know and have a most wonderful Friend to rely on. God never fails or forsakes me, how awesome is that!
God gave me a wonderful husband who is so patient, kind and loving with me. I love the little things in life, like a cuddle with my husband,  going out for a meal together  or holding hands whilst walking. We should treasure these moments and don't just let them pass you by.
My son is nearly 17 years old and time has shot by, I am so thankful to the Lord for my son and I just wish I treasured those moments spent with him more but I still have moments to come and I shall grasp and treasure them.
Don't let the world consume your time, make time for things and treasure those moments you have.
I am so thankful for the home we now live in, yet again God directed my family and removed all hurdles that might of prevented the move.
I am thankful for the lovely group of people in our church congregation who have loved and supported us and the love they have shown my husband who has been their Pastor for coming up for two years now.
I am thankful for the food on my table and the clothes I wear.
Most of all I am thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ who took this sinner and showed such love and mercy and changed my hardened heart. If God can change me, God can save anyone who  comes to him confessing their sin and putting their trust fully in The Lord Jesus Christ  alone. 
What are you waiting for? Come to Him now its free and life changing!

So thankful

I have been to see her Consultant today. After at least two years' waiting with no disease-modifying drugs available (previous treatments didn't work or caused bad reactions), subject to a couple of checks, I should be approved for 'Fingolimod', a new medication recently approved by the EU and now N.I.C.E. It is one pill taken every day, so no nasty admin methods. It 'works' by causing the white blood cells which would otherwise attack myelin surrounding nerves to be gathered to the lymph nodes instead. It apparently has a success rate between 60-70% which is unprecedented in the MS treatment field. So,I am truly thankful, and hopeful.

Here is a link to more imformation about it if you are interested.

Would really prayer

I am currently going through and relaspe and it has hit me mentally as well as physically. My mind is foggy and I am feeling a little sorry for myself, which is quite unusual for me. My right hand side is very weak and I should be going a 3 day course of steroids next week after I have seen my neurologist on Friday.
I have an occupational health visit today to see if I can get any adaptions for my home.
I would really value prayer on both of these visits.
I am very thankful I am the Lords, I do not know how people cope on their own.

Popping by.

Really sorry its been so long since I last posted but my mind was a blank on what to post so I decided if I have nothing worthwhile to share why write it lol.
I have had my ups and down health wise and focusing the energy I have on my Church, my husband is Pastor of. Its been a year now since he officially started as Pastor and its gone so quick.
What a loving and united church I belong to. Its not a big church but thats not important,  the  Lord  continues bless us and I really feel  the Lord walking with us.
This is our church website  http://mortonbaptist.org/ . We also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MortonBaptist 
I do hope you are all well and look forward to you stopping by and saying hello.

Miss you mum

It would be my mums birthday tommorow, and its brings a lot of sadness flowing back. I miss her terribly and there still feels a huge void in my life.
I have so many good memories to keep hold of. But there are times you just have to weep.
The Lord strengthens me daily and I do not know how people cope without the Lord in their lives.

Miss you mum xx

It has been too long.

I am really sorry I have not posted here for a while but sometimes its best to let a blog go quiet when you feel you have nothing to share.

Well life has had its ups and downs health wise. I had a relapse at the beginning of the year and I still have not got my strength back. I was dragging my feet, losing sensation in my right side and eyesight worked when it wanted too in my right eye, and the pain was at a higher level than normal.
I felt quite cast down for a few days until I realised I was not putting my hope and trust in the Lord Like I should. I was struggling with my quiet times and with prayer. In fact I was feeling sorry for myself! So I pleaded with the Lord to help me and guess what He did.
I did not improve much health wise for a while but spiritually I was uplifted and mentally strengthend. That was just what I needed and I just got on with things that I could, and if I could not do them I did not let it worry me. I no longer worry and think about what I cannot do, but focus on what I can do.
I also had a three day course of IV steroids and within a few weeks my walking improved and eyesight and right side weakness improved. Steroids always get me back on my feet.

Why oh why do I wonder why I can do things without the Lords help!
What a loving and patient God I have. He loves me through all my faults and weaknesses.

My Hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame'
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.

On Christ the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

My favourite hymn.

Mighty God

Life has been difficult with the loss of my Mum, but I have had a wonderful feeling of comfort and guidance from my mighty Lord. The Lord is so loving and kind. He has guided me, given me strength, helped me to say the right words or to be silent (which is a huge task in my case!), and kept me well enough to help out with the family if needed.

I am now going through a relapse. I have tunnel vision, loss of sensation and strength in my right side and pain from my neck upwards but it really isn't bothering me. That is because I have the Lord with me and on my side, how awesome is that?

I am so privileged to have the Lord in my life and to be able to come to the Lord in prayer. Walking and talking with the Lord is truly marvelous! I don't do it enough and I wonder why, because when I am talking with the Lord, all things of this world fade away and become unimportant.

I have such a forgiving and loving Lord, I fail over and over again in so many aspects of my life and the Lord picks me up and guides me. Everything that happens in my life is what the Lord has allowed and it continually shapes me while I walk the Christian path in this world.
