We Give You Praise and Thanks

"For You are my hiding place; You protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory."
Psalm 32:7

With a heart overflowing with gratitude for:

- friends and loved ones who faithfully pray

- a Father who hears and answers prayer

- a doctor who goes above and beyond, with compassion and grace

- a nurse (thank you Victor) who does everything with skill, care and patience

- caring notes and phone calls

- a Big God who cares about the smallest of details

- daily reminders just outside the kitchen window of a Father who cares about us

- granddaughters' giggles

- raindrops

- safety in travel

- His peace; His grace; His unending mercy

I'm adding my gratitude to that of others at Ann's today. Together we give praise and thanksgiving to the One who loves us and sent His Son to die for us that we might have eternal life - and abundant life in the here and now.



  1. I just came from reading another Linda's gratitude list - I'm always taken with all there is to be thankful for!

  2. Linda,
    I am catching up. I got the word that the surgery went well but now just read a couple posts back where you say there was a setback. I hope all is well and i will continue to pray. YOu are in my thoughts, dear friend.

  3. Several items jump out at me: the doctor going above and beyond what is expected, the competent nurse who sounds also compassionate, and the granddaughters' giggles--all things that make a difference in a healing process. I'm so grateful you found them, dear Linda.
    Still lifting you up.
