wrong night:)

It is Sunday night that they ask for praises and testimonies:) I wasn't that nervous but I did write what i wanted to say on paper. Wednesday is Bible study with the pastor and we are studying 1 Corinthians and it is an open floor discussion. I'm fine with participating in that so I think i will be okay on Sunday evening when the microphone is passed around. Honestly I was relieved and would be more than willing to tell each person one by one but I know that's not the way God wants me to do it, I think he wants me to shout from a mountainside. For those of you that don't know exactly how I was blessed this is what took place. I smoked cigarettes for 20 years and for the past 2 years I was trying really hard to quit smoking. I tried patches, hot lines and all the tips and tools they recommend, I used Chantix and that was helpful but only lasted as long as I took the pill, I even tried willpower. When I started attending church I was on the Chantix and I went to my pastor with 7 days free of cigarettes and asked for prayer. I followed up with more prayer, stopped the Chantix and I by the grace of God and his love for me have been a non-smoker for almost 4 months and I have had no cravings and this has not been a struggle. I thank God every day for this blessing:)
Guess who called me last night? Dale the owner of the building. It turns out that he drove to Houston, TX to pick up some medicine.
I have a management meeting tonight. I don't think I will go for the dinner I will skip that and just show up to hear the speaker.
I had 5 homeless cats on my porch this morning waiting to be fed. I know this summer there will be so more. The county I live in doesn't care about cats unless you pay them to take them and you have to bring them with proof of shots.
I'm going to go to Walmart after I drop Ave off at school, I need to get dog food, oven cleaner, all purpose cleaner and a few other things. Thanks for all the encouraging comments from yesterday. I will re-read them on Sunday, have a wonderful day:)

The power of prayer!!! And that same power will help you give your testimony on Sunday. Thanks for sharing so I can share it with my daughter.

***CindyDianne on my blogroll posted a few powerful words today. Check it out.

Zach is our 19 yr old son. He broke the scaphoid in his hand in Feb. 08. Slipped on ice and it jammed his wrist back when he fell and snapped a piece of bone off. Just a very small piece of bone broke off so he had to have major surgery to repair it at Mayo Clinic. ( Screws and pins also an artery out of his leg was graphed to the bone in hand as this is the main blood supply to thumb and fingers)The small bone fragment is still being a bugger now so he had a small surgical procedure done in Nov. to help stimulate bone growth. We went back for a checkup to see if there was new growth. Doc has yet to call and let us know..............We wannna know already!!!
Tho we understand he is a VERY busy man. He is the only doctor in the country that could do this surgery.

Zach has 2 pulses in that wrist now....which is freaky and cool!!

Thank you for sharing your story of how you were able to quit smoking. That's wonderful! I wish Russell would quit. He did quit for over a year at one time so he needs to get motivated.

I think that's really nice of you to feed the stray cats. I fed a stray cat in SC for several years. I think other people fed it as well as it was quite plump. Maybe it wasn't even a stay but it sure did seem hungry at times. Most of the time we just fed it leftovers.

He will forever have two pulses as he is not going to go thru all that surgery again!!!

He enjoys freaking out people with it!
