A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

meet my new buddy

Did you ever get a phone call, that was so unexpected?
I did awhile back...not too long ago.
The Lord had put it on "someones heart"
to buy me something.
This was a hard thing to receive.
WHY...well it wasn't cheap , for one thing.
and truly in my heart I felt unworthy of something like this.
They insisted.
So this is my new friend...isn't she grand ?
It is just perfect for someone with back problems....
someone in chronic pain....
it was from the Lord, indeed.
Why?
Because I believe this scripture applies:
Galations 6:10
As we have therefore opportunity, let
us do good unto all men,
especially unto them
who are of the household of faith.
Yes, it was hard to accept something like this.
Isn't it easier, to give than receive ???
It is a lesson to listen to that small
voice when the Lord says to do something...
doesn't have to be BIG....but you just never know the impact
you can have on someone by being obedient.
BTW...I did not mention the someones'
who bought me this,...to help me get healthy....
I am hinting...to those who know me.
I know SHE(and her husband) don't want to get the glory.
But I just had to share my blessing...
~~Deby
and yes...I am using it...

You found favor with the Most High. How lovely that one of His servants was obedient to His voice and became His hands...

Oh this is great Deby! I used one during my Physical therapy last year and it was sitting in front of a large window, and I would just peddle and watch the world go by. I really need one myself as they truly are a back saver! I've got one scoped out at Walmart! ;D

Enjoy your blessing!☺
