12th Annual Blessings Celebration Day!

Twelve years ago today, I injured my back. Each year on the anniversary of my injury I take time to count my Blessings. When living with chronic pain, it's easier at times, to allow the pain to become the main focus. My philosophy is "CREATE A POSITIVE DAY!" That means each day I focus on the positive aspects of my life and what God is doing in my life. 

Each year on the anniversary of my back injury, I have my BLESSINGS CELEBRATION DAY! I take time to count all the AMAZING blessings God has given me over the past year. It's fun and encouraging!
Each year I am OVERWHELMED by God's GREAT goodness. He takes care of me in the most creative ways and allows me the most amazing opportunities. 

Please join me in my BLESSINGS CELEBRATION DAY and count your blessings. I would love to hear about some of your blessings, simply comment on this post.

Thanks for joining in my


  1. Hi
    I found your site while doing a goole search of "why wont God heal me". I want to take this time to thank you for your posts as they have been a blessing to me today. Today has been one of those days where i have felt so alone, discouraged, angry, sad, and doubting the existence of God. I have been in at most times in unbearable pain due to the diagnosis of an L4/L5 S1 disc hernination which i dont know how it occurred because i just simply awakened one day with pain in my right leg. I have been so discouraged as i have gone from doctor to doctor and i feel i am being mis-diagnosed as a candidate for surgery when i believe i simply have a sacroillic joint and tilted pelvic problem. I have been unemployed since Sept 2012 and i woory because i know i cannot hold a job right now due to the pain. I am behind on my debts, and there just isnt enough unemployment funds to pay the bills. I am angry with myself for doubting God but its just that i feel so alone and disappointed at not receiving my healing no matter how much i quote healing scriptures and cry out in tears for help and guidance about what to do. I so feel like giving up! How do i keep holding on when I want to let go cause it seems no one cares, and God isnt listening. Did i do something wrong for God to turn away from me when i need Him most?

    1. Hi Nina,
      Glad that my blog is an encouragement to you. When I'm having a "bad day" I read Psalm 42. David also felt overwhelmed and he realized that no matter what, he had to continue to trust and keep focused on God and God's love. I especially like Ps 42:5 (The Message) "Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God— soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God."
      And Ps 42:8 Then God promises to love me all day, sing songs all through the night!

      God didn't "turn away from you". He's there. He may not answer our prayers in the way we expect or in the time frame. We are to trust God that He has a bigger plan for us and our lives. Keep reading God's Word and keep your focus on God. He loves you!

      Here's the link to the entire Psalm 42:
