Gastric Bypass Update

I'm feeling a little stronger.

The clouds of pain are lifting and life is looking colorful again.
I'm feeling His presence and His care.

I'm healing and everything is coming together.

I'm  walking...keep moving.
Things are looking up and I keep looking up.

I'll soon be feeling lighter.

I have so much support,a blessing.

Next week I can start SWIMMING.

I'm glad that I kept up with My hobby of making things. Even at the worst of times, I created in one of My playful art journals.This was the last  prompt from Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle, Watermelon Ice.Thank you Kristin,it was fun.I'm also joining Beverly's Pink Saturday --Both on My sidebar-Thank you too Beverly for all the pink fun.

All photos from Pinterest except My journals.

Hi Denise, Good luck on your recovery! Your journals are just beautiful. It is indeed amazing how much our art can get us through in difficult times. I have had so many friends go through gastric bypass - you are going to be a new woman soon! Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

Dear Sweet Denise, I came across your smiling face looking at a post from last year and wanted to check in with you. I am speechless with admiration for this brave journey you are on. I am truly moved to tears. Be well, Elizabeth

Sorry Denise, I missed this post. So glad to hear that you are gradually getting stronger. I went swimming for the first time last week with my granddaughter and have also done a few little walks. I tell you, I count my blessings each and every day that I am still able to do these things!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
