GRATITUDE

August 6, 2018

As I am finally able to try doing my blog again  I find myself - in spite of the odds that this  would ever happen - actually able to do  it.  Still tethered to my oxygen supply and bed or a wheel chair, it looks better each day.  My appetite is back with a vengence, and I feel and look less like a corpse.  Well, I am  not out of the woods yet, and I know the risk of a fatal stroke is a daily possibility,  and my eyes are failing, BUT, here I am, getting better and able to do my blog.  I feel useful again!  Why is it happening?  I mean, I was inches from actively dying.  How sobering is that..and I was not willing to fight - I was  giving up.  Then I began to literally feel myself lifted up ,"on eagle's wings", as the love and prayers  began to flow in.  Grace by the buckets-full, carried into my heart by you...my precious family and friends -  straight from God's heart to me through you.  As St. Paul teaches, love like this is a debt that can never be repaid - so  we give "love for love" as St. John of the Cross  says,  and live our vocation a little longer  - in profound gratitude.  I know you all bought me a little more time to witness to God's Love  in this suffering world before going home to our Father's house.  THANK YOU ❤
