** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

SUNDAY CITAR







WHEN I SAY, "I AM A CHRISTIAN"
~ By Carol Wimmer
© 1988

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost! That’s why I chose this way”

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I don’t speak with human pride
I’m confessing that I stumble-needing God to be my guide

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I’m not trying to be strong
I’m professing that I’m weak and pray for strength to carry on

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I don’t think I know it all
I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I’m not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible but God believes I’m worth it

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache which is why I seek His name

When I say, “I am a Christian,
I do not wish to judge
I have no authority–I only know I’m loved

I really like that. I especially like it because I mean all of those exact things when I say I'm Jewish. Our shared heritage and values are much greater (in more ways than one) than our differences.
Keep faith.

This was beautiful Teresa! Thank you so much for visiting Mama's Little Chick and for sharing about your grandparents. I know it must be difficult as you see your grandmother age, however, what an absolute blessing it is that she has and is living a full life surrounded by a loving family! I hope you have a great night!
