Blue Monday - Gloves

Every Monday, I'll have a blue post, and I'd like to invite you to participate. To participate all you need do is: click on the BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS on my sidebar.






My Granddaughter, Brittany, worked on this with me.

It has been 38 days since this mess began. I have been out of ICU for 4 days and I see these blue gloves often.

I appreciate the prayers and comments bloggers have made for me. For some reason God wants me to live.

Dear Sally, I am so thrilled to hear from you, and to know that you are continuing to improve. God is always right, and we are so blessed.

You'll have to get someone to blow up one of those blue gloves so you can take it home as a balloon when you are released.

Love, hugs and prayers for you, dear friend.♥

jlshall said...

Great to hear from you, Sally! Just keep on getting better. We miss you.

Knitty said...

Because He hears all, he hears all of us. I'm sure your family's prayers are lovingly loud and lovingly long and a mere mortal may not hear the rest of us over all that love, but He knows. He knows.

Jeanne said...

Oh Sally, this just makes me so darn happy. You have worried us so very much. YES, God wants you to live and so do many of your friends who want the same thing.

I have been gone most of this day so far, thus, this late comment. Cheri' had to be groomed and it is a good 20 plus miles one way. So we stayed in town and did errands until it was time to pick her up.
she is as cute as ever.

Keep your spirits up my dear friend and follow the Doctors orders. I know you will.

Blessings and love to you today and everyday.
Jeanne

Kaye - SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation said...

HOORAY - I have to share the encouraging Bible verses I read and underlined before coming here. They seemed especially appropriate to your own comment about God still wanting you here. :) Written by Paul in Colossians -

"...Christ in you, the hope of Glory!...
I want you to know how much I am struggling for you...and for all who have not met me personally. My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

I know that you have encouraged me in heart and, in reading the comments, I can tell you've done that for many online, not to mention your sweet grandchildren and other family members. :)

Continuing to pray for health and healing and to be surrounded by His joy and comfort. :)
