A Month of Thankfulness- Day 1

Well, the first of November does inspire one to begin to think of the things that we are thankful for and when I saw that my friend Jennifer at Homeward Bound was telling what she was thankful for... I thought I'd join in! Thanks Jen! I needed some inpiration today!

Today I am thankful for my brother. He had a heart attack this time last year and recovered pretty well. Recently, he fell at work and has injured himself. Initally we thought it was a back injury, but the doctors say that the fall has affected his brain. We are not sure what will happen next, but he has had the highest spirits and he is trusting that everything is going to be fine. The injury has affected his ability to walk and he is currently walking with a walker. He is waiting to see a neurosurgeon in the coming week. He has been through so much and I am diligently praying that the Lord will heal his body completely.


I am also thankful for my parents. Mom and dad have been with my brother through all of this and they are tirelessly working to help him get the care that he needs. Mom is such a positive light in our family and my dad prays, prays, prays. They have not always had it easy, but they try very hard to work together to make our family what it is. Since this accident they have done everything that they can for my brother, and though they are getting older, they do it all with such love and care.

I am thankful because I know that our lives could be so much worse. I am thankful that I have a family that loves Jesus and who sticks together through thick and thin.

If you have a moment would you pray for my family? We are trusting the Lord and the fact that He is Jehovah Raffae "The God Who Heals."
