For Robie...

This is for Robie, who visited my blog earlier this week and left a comment: 

I was touched by what you wrote and I thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. You are indeed right when you said there is always someone a little worse off than we are. I too tell myself that quite often. While I'm not in a wheelchair, I have chronic health conditions that limit what I can do, especially since I had bilateral strokes in July of 2010.

I used to wonder 'why me' and now I say 'why not me?' Things happen to many of us that we'd rather not have to deal with. What I'm learning is that my attitude makes a world of difference when problems surface. I want to be known as someone who trusts what the Lord does in my life ... who ever seeks to give Him honor and glory for each day. May I be remembered, if I'm remembered at all, as someone who loved the Lord and loved His people.

Robie, I encourage you to keep in touch with me. I so appreciate hearing from others! One reason I write is in hopes it will minister to other people...those I know and those I don't.

May the Lord meet each need and may you come to understand your purpose in this life.



  1. Louise, thanks for the kind words. Yes I count each day for the Lord and my prayers are that others see Christ through me and not me. I want people to see my Lord first and then the vessel of his use. I looked for a way to subscribe to your page.I have enjoyed reading your past blogs and I must say God has blessed you with a wonderful talent of the written word.All of mine are tumbled about inside my head and sometimes comes out half way that I'm trying to say.I'm from Prestonsburg a small town in Eastern Ky, Following my accident we moved to Lincoln County/Casey County boarders to be closer to Lexington where I had to go there for the doctors I had to see. Again if you don't mind drop me a line telling me how to join your page.I would love to read your blogs for the blessings they bring.May God bless you richly for your efforts.

  2. Hi Robie! Good to hear from you again. You may find this hard to believe, but my in-laws are from McDowell, KY, which is about 20 miles from Prestonsburg. Such a small world we live in, isn't it?
    If you have a blog, you can add mine to that; or, if you're reading from the internet only, just add my blog address to the Favorites list on your computer.
    I deeply appreciate your reading what I've written and look forward to hearing from you again.
    Are you on Facebook? If so, I could find you that way.
    I'm dealing with a lung infection this week, but overall, I'm blessed to be alive.
    Take care my new friend!
