Comeback Feb 2017

Psalm 139: 4-5
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.

     I haven't blogged since October 2015, because of weakness in my arm.  I have a neuromuscular disease that has progressively taken my physical strength away, but my will to share the Truth has never died.  I did think tho that I needed both a break and a time of silence on my part after 4 years of blogging.  I guess my break is over because God has provided me with a new way to type and I am so thankful.  What better way to show my gratitude than to blog again about His faithfulness in my own life.
          James 1;17-18   '' Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.''
      We are told to be thankful in all circumstances, but that's easier said than done.  In December 2016, I lost the use of my typing arm overnight for no explainable reason... for 3 very long weeks.  I couldn't use my computer or the tv remote without help. I wasn't thankful, but frustrated to a whole new level. Desperation leads to research for help.  ICAN is an agency that loans out tools for the disabled.  They are the ones who have helped me type again with an onscreen keyboard, camera and a button clicker.  So now in hindsight, I am thankful for the struggle because it helped me to persevere and receive the joy God intended for me.  Our trials are meant to draw us nearer to God.  When all is stripped away, we are reminded that God is faithful, trustworthy and His timing is perfect... even when we doubt.
      I want my blog to be a source of encouragement for all my readers.  The use of Scripture, various quotes and pictures can help us all to have the right perspective in our daily lives.  I'm excited to see what God lays on my heart to write about and share with you in the coming days.  

      ''Nothing is acted in the world without God's knowledge and the arm of his omnipotence to guide them. Not the most retired corner, the darkest cell, the deepest cavern, the most secret wickedness, but the eye of the Lord beholds it'' (Proverbs 15:3). - Stephen Charnock


  1. So happy you are back! Praising the Lord for His provision for you ❤

  2. Angie, I am glad you've found a way to resume your blogging. It's good that you are encouraged and can encourage others. (II Cor. 1:3-7) It's good to be able to talk with you again. May you always be conscious of the Lord's favor and His presnce with you.

  3. Thank you dear Angie,
    We are glad that something has been found to help you.

  4. Welcome back, my friend. What a blessing and an inspiration you are to so many. God has got you here for a reason. Love grace mayo.

  5. Oh Miss Angie, this is a real joy to my heart and all those who have been and will be blessed by your blogging for the Lord's glory. When I saw your e-mail pop up and read it, I just praised the Lord for your faithfulness to Him. I had ask Grace about you a short while back and she updated me and also told me about your mom. I will be praying for both of you. I just had to say hello and please know I do not expect you to answer back because I know how difficult this is just to write your blog. So, know that you are loved and prayed for Miss Angie. Looking forward to all the future blogs my dear. God bless you with healing, strength and wisdom.

  6. So good to see you blogging again....and thankful for God's provision of new tools to assist you. I love your always have a word for me.
    Love you! Twylia
