Count your garden by the flowers,
Never by the leaves that fall.

Count your days by golden hours,
Don't remember clouds at all...

Count your nights by stars
not shadows.
Count your years with smiles,
not tears.

Count your blessings, 
not your troubles.

Count your age by friends,
not years

My Grace is sufficient for you,, for my power is made perfect in weakness". 2 Corinthians 12:9

I have received emails wanting to know how my husband is doing with his treatments. He is doing good with them, Praise the Lord!  He hasn't been sick yet, just tired and weak. We will start our 2nd week on Monday then 6 more weeks of treatments.  They keep him full of nausea medicine.  I keep him loaded with energy drinks, like Ensure. Thanks so much for asking, it is a blessing to know that you care. He gave me permission to write about him.

Fear not for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee, yea I will help thee...Isaiah 41:10 KJV

We find strength in God's words, our faith is weak at times but just when we get to the lowest place, He lifts us up to higher ground.

Exodus 15:2
The Lord is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation: He is my God...

We're counting our Blessings for God has been good to us!

Have a Blessed weekend!
