Pray For Me?

I sure have been learning some lessons in perseverance lately!
I've been reminded that there's never a good enough reason to give in to discouragement. Not even a fever- for the second time in the last month.
No! I'll never like a fever but I also shall never be friends with discouragement!
Discouragement is a liar!
It threatens to steal my joy and thankfulness.
It leads me down the path of self- pity.
It's dark and lonely down that path.
Forget it!
Healing will come.
Energy will return.
I have a family that loves me.
Friends surround me.
And I have my Lord as my Champion!
He's ever here- cheering me on!
What's there to be discouraged about?
But in the meantime- could you pray for me?

Hey Holly,
I will pray for you sweetie. I feel discouraged myself today...I have made a decision to make my blog private...I am trying to figure out how to let family and blog friends like you still see it... maybe I can figure it out. I will be back to visit are a precious person and a precious blog friend...God Bless you and lift you up.

Holly said...

Thanks for the prayers, Queenie! You're a precious blog friend, too!

I know there *is* a way to make your blog private. You'd probably have to send an email to everyone in order to give them a password or perhaps they could email you to get it...

Please keep me posted!

Yuck! My prayers are with you. Maybe you just needed the rest that comes with being ill. Get more rest! Thanks for relating about the Legos!

Holly said...

Aw, thanks, Cindy!

Today was pretty rough. :< I'll admit that I haven't been taking as good of care of myself as I should...

Your boys' legos were precious with your pink stuff! :> My boys were/are big gun fans so I've been vaccuming up BBs for YEARS! Ha-ha! I wouldn't have it any other way, though. I know I'll miss it when it's over.

Thanks for coming by, Cindy. It brightened my evening after a long and weary day.

Hey, pretty Priscila! You sweetheart, you!

Hee-hee! Even though I popped over to your place multiple times today to see if I won, I'm GLAD Melissa won! I really am! One give away winning was enough for me for one day! BUT I'll always be a winner with a friend like you!
