                                                                                                                                                    Good Monday morning and come on in Through My Back Door, get a cup of coffee and lets go out on the porch.            
                                                                                                                                                  It is so pretty this morning. Not sunny, but a beautiful morning. Life. We take it so for granted. That is until someone we love faces a situation where they could lose theirs. LIFE is precious, it is a gift from God. We are not here by some fluke thing, God created us and this world and I don't appreciate it like I should. However if you have been following me any length of time, you remember when Amanda was diagnosed with breast cancer. That is the moment I quit taking LIFE for granted.
This was during her chemo. We had gone to Lulu's Tea Room for lunch. Lulu let us go upstairs so she wouldn't have to be with people. During these times I KNEW life wasn't forever and was a gift. I also have said repeatedly my faith in God grew during this time. I now enjoy a closer walk with Him. I now enjoy every day of LIFE.
Amanda is healed now. She is living LIFE. She has given her testimony to church groups, on blogs, wherever she may witness about God and LIFE. She doesn't take anything for granted and sees only good in everyday. She knows she is a miracle and doesn't take it for granted. She loves LIFE and I love her. I am sorry she had to suffer to teach her Grandma a lesson, but I learned so much about LIFE during this. As all who knows her did.
My prayer and challenge for everyone who visits my blog, that you will LIVE LIFE to the best and to the fullest. Do not let little aggravations get you down. Ignore petty remarks, ignore inconveniences, and live and enjoy LIFE.  It is a Gift from God. Also REMEMBER the greatest gift of LIFE ever given was when Jesus died on that cross for you and me.
If you have time living your life please continue to come Through My Back Door where LIFE is good.
