From the camera....

This was outside my hospital room door right before the virus became a worldwide pandemic. Just 3 days later!
I don't believe that was there by accident!

On my prayer list....
The world, there will be a stop to this virus .
For the health care teams who are caring for the sick.
My daughter Amber is a respiratory therapist at a children's hospital. I pray God keeps her healthy!
I pray that God will remind us why it's important to social distance!
I pray for a friend of mine who is a very high risk pregnancy! She need to be able to not to go into labor again until she is admitted into CMC main. she needs to make it to 23 weeks.
Pray for our nation our president and it's leaders.
My health I have spent several days in the hospital this month with my lungs!  I have had a hard time bouncing back energy wise. Needless to say I am high risk and I have not left my house lol.
For all of you that reads this post I hope you know I am praying for you and your family to stay well! 

Bible verse, Devotional....
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28. ... It says: “In everything give thanks.” Both “bad” and good.
 I have to believe God's got this and we are gonna be okay! Stronger than ever!

  1. Glad you are out of the hospital now and praying you and your family stay healthy. Not sure how it would work in your area but I did see where a friend's son's friends gave him a birthday parade over the weekend. All drove by the house with birthday greetings held up or something like that. In any case, happy early birthday to your daughter. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Thank you so much! I am very thankful to be home and thank you for your prayers! They are very appreciated! I love the Birthday parade that is awesome idea! Thank you sharing that with me! Thank you for stopping by! Stay healthy and well!

  2. I love a good bargain, and that set will be lovely once you paint it. What colour were you thinking? All of our borders are now closed, within my state you can't even travel to a neighbouring town. We only have 5 infections, all brought into our state, and no person to person infection but we are a very isolated state, with only 600 hospital beds in total to service about 244300 people, so we are taking extreme measures. Take care, stay safe!

    1. I love a good brain too! I was thinking a retro blue or a soft lavender! This afternoon our Gov. has called for the close of all schools till the end of the year,hair salons, nails salons, and gyms. I wish people would just follow instructions and only go out for necessities. However people are not taking this seriously! Please keep you and your family safe! Praying for you

  3. So sorry I'm late! I've been avoiding the computer quite a bit and filling it with other activities. According to my weekly report my screen time was down 23% so hopefully that's why I'm running so late. Glad you're home from the hospital - stay healthy and safe. I hope you had a GREAT week and I'll see you tomorrow!


I love to hear from you! Take time to say hello and let me know what you thought!
