Cheerfuldoer saying, I'm Baaaccckkk!!!

  1. hello my all nurses pals!

    it feels so goooood to be back here after such a long "off and on"...more off than on...period of time! ya'll have always been in my thoughts and prayers.

    after a two year journey of going through a lot of healing in my life, i can humbly state that i am all the better for the journey. i have learned and experienced the true meaning of the phrase "no pain-no gain". i've also learned that the worst spanking isn't a "physical spanking", but a "spiritual spanking". believe me...you've never been spanked until you've been "spiritually spanked". careful what you pray (ask) for...god aims to please all who seek his face for deliverance in their life, and his interpretation of what we need in our life doesn't always coincide with our own version of what we need. :angel2:

    in the past couple of months, god has blessed me with a nursing job, a great used car, my own abode, and many friends whom were and are angels to me forever. i've learned to be more humble, more grateful, more self-loving, more spiritually perceptive in this journey called life. i wouldn't trade those lessons for anything. i will never be the way i used to be before this journey began a little over two years ago. i know no other way to share with ya'll this incredible experience except in the way that it happened to me. to leave god out of my sharing this with ya'll is to erase the entire journey for without him carrying me through this journey, there would be no me today. he walks with me, and talks with me, and shows me daily that i am his own. i love him more today than i ever have before, and i'm not ashamed of him before anyone.

    thank you, father god, for restoring new life into me, returning to me that which i lost to become whole again in every way, and i know you still have many many surprises in store for me. i know that no matter what others may say about you...you live for us today, you walk this earth for us in many forms today, and you have never forsaken those who turn to you for help...in your time...i have been healed...i am whole again...and all the better for the experience. amen!

    Cheer, you got me crying!

    Tears of joy of course.

    I'm so happy and grateful that you found a job, purchased a car, and a house!

    All I can say, you've got alot of patience. Most would have given up on life by now - me included.

    I'm so glad to hear about your recent good fortunes, Renee. God works in mysterious ways, and I suppose he is sending the glorious blessings in your direction.

    Here's a hug. (((hug))) :icon_hug: I missed you!

    Awww...tears of joy are far better to cry than tears of sadness, so go ahead and cry those tears of joy all you want. :kiss

    I've not moved into a house as yet...that's a desire of my heart to own a home though. I did move into a one bedroom apartment, and piece by piece will furnish it with bright and calming colors that reflect my newfound spiritual mood. :spin: I'm so excited and giddy...like being a "teenager" again...sort of...ya know what I mean.

    And there were times when I wanted to give up on life...believe me. But, it wasn't in God's divine order for me to do that, and I'm thankful that He saw something in me that I did not see in myself.

    Thanks Commuter! God blesses whom He chooses, and I thank Him for choosing to bless me so I -- in turn -- can bless others. :flowersfo

    Glad to see you back!

    I can relate in a way; the last year has been tough for me (and the last few weeks, as everyone can tell from my posts). But it's also been a spiritually deepening experience, and an opportunity for growth.
