Deo Gratias - The Lord Holds Us Up


"If the only prayer you ever say in your life
 is thank you, it will be enough." - Meister Eckhart

Deo Gratias is Latin for "Thanks be to God." Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big and small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude! I invite you to share your blessings here on Wednesdays. Be sure to sign into Mr. Linky below and grab the button.

It is after midnight. I left the hospital about 2 hours ago. My husband has been admitted with abdominal pain. It took 3 days, 2 very long visits to the ER and a visit to our doctor and a consult from our GI doctor to finally diagnose the pain and start treatment.
Now there is hope at the end of the tunnel. My husband should be better in a couple of days. Please pray for him.
Thank you, Lord, for helping us to find the answers and the right doctor(s) to help us and for giving us the strength, and the gift of trust in You, to keep it together and to endure this trial. Deo gratias!
