God Gave Me YOU

I'm so blessed to have friends, family and a husband to help me through my time on this planet.  We think it's a long time, but it's not really long considering how long eternity is.
I want to thank God for filling my life with so many people who impact my walk with him.
This song spoke to me and I know it shows a couple, in the video, but look at the words as you listen to the song and see if there are people in your life you are glad God gave to you.  I have so many friends I wouldn't want to live without.  How about  You?  What would you do without girlfriends?  How ever do guys do it?


Dave Barnes - God Gave Me You
From the album What We Want, What We Get

I've been a walking heartache
I've made a mess of me
The person that I've been lately
Ain't who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you

There's more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
Ill be the flattered fool
& I need you

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you

On my own I'm only
Half of what I could be
I can't do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I could never undo

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt

For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you, gave me you.
Gave me you.




I have to show you the flowers Tim got me for the hospital.  I love carnations so that's what he brought for me.
I got a few cards from friends to help me recouperate.  Check out the cards I got from Hope and Jane.
Aren't these flowers just gorgeous? Hope sent this to me with a box of goodies to help me recover. Thanks Hope. Now seeing your card, I'm going to have to CASE this one. I love the layout and colors of the card. Thank you for making a difference in my life with your card. You are a blessing to me.

Don't you just love the woman on the front of this card? She's a hoot and made me laugh yesterday when I truly needed it. Thanks Jane for such encouragement and giggles. I love that paper and the ribbon is just perfect. Don't ya just love polka-dot ribbon. You're blessing me with your gift of encouragement, thank you Jane.

This is a cute box I made following the directions found here.  http://papersmiles.blogspot.com/2008...-gift-bag.html
I used retired 6x6 paper from Design paper Pack III,  The image was from my friend Hope was colored with markers. The flower centers are colored with stickles-yellow. I added white ribbon through eyelets then covered the eyelets with my fav. SU lace.

The PT left and now I need ice!  I know it's making me better the exercises and the ice.  Please continue to pray for me as I progress through this.  I'm frustrated to have to go through this again which means being homebound for a few more weeks.  I can go out on short trips, but not driving stinks ya know?
Thanks for stopping by today.  We'll see what else my day brings.
Blessings to you and yours.
