I get knocked down, but I get up again...

My life this week reminds me of this song.

Last Sunday morning was one of the hardest days I've had in YEARS.  This was the last time felt like this...March 18, 2007.  That's not too bad I guess - almost 4  years ago.  (I have a better memory now that I'm a blogger.  All I have to do is look back in my blog notes to remember anything.  lol)  It also occurred on a Sunday, of course!  The enemy makes sure of that.

By the time the altar service was over Sunday morning I was in full blown fever, chills, nausea, headache, the works...and by Sunday night I couldn't speak a word.  This thing pretty well knocked me flat til late Wednesday night.  I've had an adjusted schedule all week long.

Now I'm pretty much trying to get to 100% by this Sunday.  Congestion, cough and issues with my voice are all that remain.  I would say my voice it at about 75 % -- it fades in and out.  I really need your prayers to see a miracle by tomorrow.  That's really what I'm longing for, so please believe with me.

Although I was in bed most of the week, I got a whole lot accomplished.  I tacked things I've been longing to do and God moved in some miraculous ways with things I've been praying about.

I'll share more about it over the months as things unfold...right now I'm going to rest again.  :)  Tomorrow's a big day.

Before I close let me share five things I'm uber grateful for right now:
 ~My vaporizer...it's been my bff this week.
~ My dogs who have been such perfect company snuggling with me in bed during this flu.
~ Heavenly surprises around every corner this week even when I was not working, God was!
~ Great reports from Celebration at every turn.  So excited about what God is doing.
~ I lost another 1.2 pounds this week.  I'm doin' this thing, folks.  Nothin's gonna stop me now.

Deanna,
Praying for a MIRACULOUS healing for you for tomorrow....

OUR GOD IS GREATER...
OUR GOD IS HEALER....

God had a chance to have your undivided attention this week...Letting you know "BE STILL FOR I AM YOUR GOD.."

you do so much for others, that sometimes you forget about yourself...Time to slow the pace just a little....I know, easier said than done....But, love you and don't like to see you sick...

Love all that you write....

In Gods Love
Cindy
