Let’s Praise God – Please Read!


To all of you:
(Jamie here!)

I want to apologize first that I haven’t been around all day for the usual Rite-Aid, Target, etc…  Let me please tell you why.

My husband felt odd this morning on the way home from church.  Sick, sweaty, shaky, short of breath.  And it kept getting worse.  We sat on the couch, praying over him, and trying to decide what to do.  Fifteen minutes later, panicking, we left for the E.R.

While I sat there, worrying, listening to his ragged breathing and watching his hands shake – I was so scared that I would lose this man that I love.  My four young boys watched him warily, fearful and uncomprehending.  After several rounds of tests, and six hours of waiting and worrying, the doctor came in to talk to us. 

Every test result came back PERFECT.  The x-rays, the bloodwork, the EKG – all PERFECT!  It seems he just had an anxiety attack – a result of many factors, all of which we are making plans to alleviate.  This can be fixed.  (breathe) This is going to be okay.  (breathe) My sweet, wonderful husband is going to be just fine.

I am crying with relief right now as I write this, and I just want to praise God for His Goodness, for the people that He gives to us to love and to love us, for the things that are really important.  We just arrived home, and I’m going to take the rest of the evening to take care of my family and recover from the exhausting tension of the day.  But before I sign off, I want to open this post up for any of you who want to give thanks for things in YOUR lives!  I am in the mood to praise God tonight – let’s praise Him together.

Thank you Jesus!!

    I am praising the Lord also, but I was not as fortunate as you all. God called my husband home to be with him on Thursday. By now, he has looked into the face of Jesus and walked on the streets of gold. That is something we can only imagine. I wouldn't call him back if I had the power, but I sure will miss him! I am ready to meet him in Heaven someday.
