"Me…" By Nancy Alexander
God, Family, Life, Work…
My life's goal is to make a difference in the lives of others by sharing with them the gift that God has so richly blessed me with. I can honestly finally say I am grateful for the path God has led me on which has brought me to this place where I can love, encourage, teach, and train customers and friends. I have been blessed with the gift of "art", and I am using this gift to teach a hobby that gives so many of you a reason to get out of bed each morning with joy and anticipation of what you will accomplish this day.
Life – My Life…
God Created me, He Saved me, and He Redeemed me. He watches over me always holding out His hand to lead me on His path, as He catches me when I fall. God brought my husband, Steve and I together over 40 years ago. Steve truly is "the love of my life", you know, the "Knight in Shining Armor" that we all hope to find one day. Because of my illness, this road has not been smooth, it has been full of pot holes, and curves, and steep hills. But now, God has led us on his smooth path and walks with us – together – hand in hand. My husband cherishes me, he loves me more than I have ever felt loved before, and he supports me in whatever endeavor we feel God is leading us or me to do. I am overwhelmed with this "unconditional" love, I had never known.
God has given Steve and I a very special family, one that we both adore, made up of our two boys, their wives, and our four precious grandchildren. Each one is so very special making each day giddy, lovely, joy-filled and happy. We play together, laugh together, and we giggle together. And, there are plenty of hugs, kisses, and Wuv You Mimi & Poppy! I thank God every day for the blessings of my life and the love that fills it.
My heart is full today. It is full of blue birds, daffodils, colors and smiles. It is overcome with praises to God for all of His blessings, and the family He has seen fit to entrust me with. With a chronic illness, I have failed many, many times and have not been the wife and mother I wanted to be. I am so thankful now, that God, in his infinite wisdom, has seen fit to give me another chance. ~Nancy~
Nancy, I would like to thank you for your words of encouragement. At the end of September, 2015 and the first of October I had two strokes and at the end of November I developed Congestive Heart Failure. As a result I am now on oxygen for the next 6 months. It has been a long, hard road to my recovery. I am taking small steps everyday and am feeling a lot better since September. I am really thankful that God was watching over me and the strokes left no residual damage to my brain or memory. The whole experience has left me with a renewed faith in God. I am Jewish, but that should not matter. God watches over all his children. Thank you so much! Linda
Linda, I am so sorry to hear of all your health problems. I, too am glad He is watching over you… praying for renewed health and happiness! <3
Dear Nancy, Thank you for your honesty and encouragment to take better care of ourselves. I also have fibromyalgia and several other health problems that returning to a healthier lifestyle would be of great benefit. I love God and have been a Christian 40+ years. Looking forward to seeing your future blogs as I continue my journey also. Sincerely, Mikie Coogan
Thank you so much Mikie for your support and encouragement!
