Back From The Hospital


Hello to all my dear blogging friends, have you missed me? I have missed you, I feel like I know each of you personally. We have been going through some trials. We were one of the places in Virginia hit by the bad storms, and it affected us, though our home is safe. When the big storm started, I got very ill, and we had to go to the E.R., where they admitted me to the hospital. I got home last night, but am very weak and taking a lot of strong drugs which are making me ill. So I will have to take a blogging break, I am not well enough to be on the computer for very long. I do not know if the break will be a few days or almost two weeks, when my medicine is done. I will miss each one of you, and I promise when I return I will tell you about everything that has happened, including pictures. Until then, stay safe, my dear friends. And to my very special friend, here are some glittering decorative grasses I have snapped over the years, I know they are a favorite of yours. I will leave you with this quote that had great meaning to me this week.

“The Lord is Good” - period. Everything about God is good,
including everything that is related to me-- His thoughts about me,
His plans for me, His actions toward me, His guidance in me, His
blessings to me, His protection of me, His purposes fulfilled
through me and His ordained circumstances that surround me at
this very moment in my life. They may not look good, seem good,
sound good or feel good--but because they are ordained of God,
they ARE good. Colossians 3:3 says that “your life is hid with
Christ in God.” Every detail of your life is contained in Him,
including your present circumstances, trials, and needs.
--Shad

Oh, Ginny! I am so sorry . . . about the storm and your sickness. I have not been blogging for the past two weeks, so I'm just learning of your difficult days. May God be so very near you and bring healing. "Hold on to Jesus" . . . better days are ahead!

Lynn said...

Ginny, You know you were on my mind when I heard about another friend describing the storm. She is on the Maryland coast or close enough. I read that it hit VA hard. I was praying for you the whole time. Still praying my friend. Having to go to the ER in the storm had to make everything so much worse. Yet, the Lord is always in every situation before we even get there. Get your strength back and get lots of rest. God Bless you sweetie.

My Dear Ginny,

So sorry that I have been gallivanting , not blogged or visited any other blog and not known about your condition.

I pray you are getting better by the day. I came back from Singapore last week. Last week at this time, I was struggling to sleep in the plane.

I also pray for Phil, and your grands and your children.

Stephanie V said...

It's been a month. I'm thinking of yo, Ginny, and hoping that you are getting stronger. I know that Phil is taking wonderful care of you and that the girls are bringing you smiles and big pink hearts!.

Karin said...

Still thinking of you and knowing you are in God's love and care. Blessings to you both!
