God Can Talk Through An Ass

So today is my big debut at The Angeles Clinic, to see Dr. I Know Everything About Melanoma. We will see if there are any new and effective clinical trials for me. Hopefully, there is a non-balding one but if not I will start my chemo cocktail my doctor has recommended. So with all that said I had ask for prayer because I will be driving to the “Big City” (it is only about 35 miles) and is totally out of my comfort zone. I received so many posts on Facebook from dear sweet friends that really encouraged me, especially this one “If God can talk through an ass in the bible He can do anything”. Don’t you just love it! I know I am the apple of my Father’s eye and I am more than an ass so I am expecting God to do great and mighty things. He always does He always will!

Beautiful Christian Sister

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ

That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'

I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.

I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.

I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.

I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,

I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Pretty is as Pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!
