Spiritual Sunday and Pink Saturday Post
We are sharing this wonderful weekend for an  Inspiring makeover reveal for Colette

This week I have pondered all of the miracles I have experienced in my life.

God's provision
God's protection
God's peace
God's healing

So I thought I would share one short story about each.

God's Miraculous provision

In 1979 we were getting ready to leave the army and move home to finish my husbands masters.
We were quite pour to say the least!  We sat down and put together the cost to rent a trailer, hotel and food cost plus gas for the trip from Florida to Kansas.  We came up with the number of $342. 
We knew we would really have to save to have that much.
When shopping I picked up an envelope in the parking lot.   I did not make a habit of this so I was quite surprised to realize it was cash, a LOT of cash.
When I got home I called the store to report the find giving our name and phone number and the fact that it was cash without giving an amount.
After the 2 months before we moved I kept the money in the envelope in the dresser drawer waiting for the call I knew would come.

It didn't.
And yes, it was exactly $342.

God's Miraculous protection

My husband was on night duty on base.  
I was home with two small children.
Someone was trying to get into the house.
As I laid there and prayed for God to protect us I opened my eyes and
the brightest white figure filled the bedroom door.
I cried out OK God I believe
as I pulled the covers over my head
Whoever it was trying to break down the door went away.

God's peace

Not always the easiest to obtain!
Our son left home with his 16 year old girlfriend right after his 18th birthday.

There were many nights I cried my self to sleep.
I could not understand why
We had no idea where they were for 3 months.

Only with God's peace was I able to go through that tough time.

God's healing

Last September I woke up and got my husband off to work.
It was like any other normal morning.
I started getting a headache about 10 am
I was supposed to drive my friend and I to the gym.
I called her to let her know I had a headache she said she would drive.
When she got to the house my headache had gotten worse.
Within 15 minutes I couldn't stand and my speech had become slurred.
She called 911
I had had a major stroke but because God had orchestrated the timing for me not to be in the car and my friend to be at my house I was able to get to the hospital within the 3 hour time frame to receive the drug 
tPA   that cleared the clot.  I spent the next two days in ICU but came home with almost no side effects from the stroke. 

These are only a few of the stories of God's intervention in my life.  I pray they have given you hope in whatever place you find yourself today.

Oh Debbie, isn't GOD good!!!!! I still remember that story of the $342.00 to the penny. Each time our family has had things to endure, JESUS had always given us a hugh blessing. HE has touched you so much through this stroke, and I'm so lucky to have you as my sister and in my life. Love you

These are so wonderful. I have shared some similar personal stories as well. I think it's so important and encouraging. For anyone reading this that may think it only happens to someone else, wrong! He is no respecter of persons. Seek Him first and all these things will be added on to you. He is able to do more than we could ask or imagine.
In His love,

Oh Debbie Sweetie...
Thank you, thank you for sharing your miracle stories with me this weekend. I have been deeply touched. Sometimes until we hear others stories some of our own have since slipped our minds.

Your story about your stroke, everything happened at just the right time, and yes we too have been close to being out in the street at times in our past, and at the last minute after prayer God came through, we just had to have faith. Such a small powerful word isn't it?

Please stop by Country Wings in Phoenix (my blog) and leave a comment this weekend. Guideposts magazine is donating a dollar for every comment left during the miracle weekend. I would so love to get enough donations for several miracle makeovers to happen. I know they are out there just waiting to be discovered.

Many hugs sweet friend...Sherry

Debbie, I so appreciate you coming on board for the Miracle Makeover party. Your testimony brings me smiles. It is so inspiring to read what God does in other peoples lives. Our God is an awesome God!

I look forward to future blogs.
His blessings to you.
