It is so nice to know that God is in even the little things in my life. I usually don't post on my blog in the afternoons, yet today I wanted to make note of what God has done.
I am a type 2 diabetic, along with dealing with my Severe R.A.. I have been trying really hard to get my blood glucose levels down for years, & have tried even harder in the past year since my diagnosis with the R.A.. Today I went for another 3 month check up with my family DR., and found out that my glucose are yet again lower than ever. They do this 3 month blood panel to find out the highs and lows for the last 3 months. Then it is put on a scale of sorts. I have until this year never been below 7.2. As of today my levels are 6.7. Which I might add is really terrific. My over all average glucose levels are at 125 ( YIPPEE ) this is a nearly perfect glucose level. Doc said that when I come in next time , if my levels are still going down , he is going to recommend for me to stop some of my glucose med's. Then 3 months after that if it is still going down, I will be able to completely come off all my type 2 diabetic med's.
To most folk's this may not seem such a big deal, but to me, a diabetic this is great news.
I am so very thankful that even if it takes a while to see God moving and working in our lives, to know that He is still in control of EVERYTHING. Even the little things.
I so very often think that when I pray to Christ for something, I will get an immediate answer. Nope that's often not the case. All things come to be in God's Perfect Timing.
Just had to make myself a note about what God has done. OH, bye the way, my slow process of trying to lose weight. Well I am down another 4 pounds, and this is January. You know, right after all the holidays, all the great food. And yet God has helped me to lose another 4 pounds. WOO-HOO. I'M A HAPPY GIRL.
Love & Prayers,
Have a Peachy Keen Day, I am.!Pin It
Most every morning, after hubby leaves for work, and all is quite in the house is when I usually try to get in some of my computer time. That is, when my body is not screaming for a little more sleep, haha. The house is all quite, hubby gone to work, kids sleeping, our fur babies have been fed their morning tuna and are now fast asleep somewhere. I love to get on the computer, spend time on my blog, search thru some of my favorite forums, web sites, & blogs. Look up information on some subject that is on my mind, etc.
When I am all finished with the computer, for me this is the perfect time for me to spend time in prayer, alone with the Lord, and my Bible. Later in the day, when things get busy, & everyone is awake and doing their things around the house, it is quite frankly just to busy a time for me to be able to find quite time to myself, alone, with out an interruption. A freshly brewed cup of coffee, and off I go. This is really getting to be a constant thing for me, that I long for, the quite times alone with my Lord, and then quite times with my hubby as well, more and more everyday. Please don't misunderstand, I do and will always want more time with my kids, but as I am learning there are times when I have to pull back just a bit, and let them go (just a little at a time). I am also learning they will, of their own free will and desire come and want to spend time with their daddy & I. This makes the times with my children even more appreciated.
Children often in this world are made to be torn between family & their friends. Hubby & I have always tried to make our home a place where they would feel free to enjoy both, here at the same time. Young adults and teenagers often go thru a period of time when friends, fun, and other activities (for us church & church youth activities are at the center of this)are what they long for, and when hubby & I can we try to keep these things in the proper order and perspective. So until those times when children and their friends are buzzing around us (usually holler'in "hey mom, what is there to eat" or "Mom, can you fix me something to eat"), I am learning, that part of finding more of the Lords peace in my life is accepting more of the quite times in my life. Making those quite times to be more centered around my Savior Jesus Christ and my life long, high school sweet heart & hubby Bob.
This is why I love the saying above;
Make time for the quite moments, as God whispers and the world is loud.
With my blog, I guess this is also why I wanted even the music to be peaceful, relaxing, & soul stirring as these are some of my favorite types of music anyway. To be perfectly honest on many of the blogs that I have visited, a few have seemingly had the same desire for their blogs and on one of my fav's (eyes of wonder, by Jewels) it really seemed to be a perfect match. So I took a que from some of them, and it has come out to be just what I wanted. When I am in here, early in the mornings, with the music playing softly in the back ground, it truly is peaceful, and for what ever reason it really does help my mind to be clear and focused when I am writing and sharing thoughts, and daily happenings.
In this photo from left to right are some of my daughters best friends.
Amy, then my daughter Christina, Johnathan, Brian, & Courtney.
Hubby & I love these kids like our own and in turn they have all named us Mama Ronda, & Daddy Bob. We wouldn't have it any other way.
Our dear Brian is now in the marines, and we pray for him & his safety every day.
We pray for all these kids. It's funny, when they are here, they know that we are strict, even if you are 22,23, or 24 years old. You know they respect our rules, and love us all the more. I even had one of these ( my surrogate kids) call me last night to say mama can I have a home cooked meal. What a blessing to my heart that was. And of course she will be coming over for dinner this week.
My son Bobby and his friends are the same way. When my son and his friends are here, if I ask what they want to eat I usually get the response of, " Biscuits & Gravy, Please".
Yet again what a blessing it is. Even if all we have to offer is, our company and some home made cook'in. I love it when my children ( naturally born to me or surrogate/adopted kids) do come back around.
God has been so very good to Bob & I in so very many ways. I pray we never take any of it for granted. Quite times, family times, times with "all" our kids, times alone with our Lord. I am so blessed.
Love & Prayers,
