Thank You Jesus Dinner

I am kind of excited today…

I have the opportunity to go to a dinner (shin-dig) at the Ritz Carleton for The Arthritis Foundation.

Now, I’m not fancy, nothing about me is very fancy, but I’m excited to go to this.

I’ve never been to one before, and someone told me that it will be boring, but I’m excited to go, despite the fact that I need something to wear (most woman love to shop – this girl… this size… not so much).

I’m going because someone else couldn’t. But it’s such a great Foundation. And they helped me so much because as most of you know, Phyllis HAD (that’s right HAD) Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. I could do a cartwheel saying the word HAD. Who would have thought that such a small word could bring such joy. Say it with me… HAD HAD HAD HAD HAD HAD HAD HAD.


So I know that no one there will care that she did. I know it’s a fancy dinner to raise money, but really, I feel like I could be a keynote speaker, not about her disease but about her healing.

It’s a true testament to the God that loves me, to the God I serve, that as I laid down my daughter before Him, she was healed. I’m getting all misty. You know that if all God did was save me from the pits of hell, that’s enough, but He’s more than that, and how thankful I am that…

By His wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5)
