Father God, How real, how neat, how great are You, Lord! Worthy to be praised! Unsearchable! Like none other! Thank You for allowing Matt of Jesus Luvs All to nominate me for the Real Neat Blog Award and to allow me the opportunity to share with others. I long to tell the whole whole Gail Loves God!! And they need to know how much You love them! ❤

Thank you, Matt, for sharing with me, and allowing me more opportunities to let others know how much they are loved by our wonderful heavenly Father! May the Lord bless your health, your blog, and you! Me and God love you, Brother! 🙂Real Neat Award 2.29.2020THE RULES:
– Display the blog award logo in your blog.
– Thank the blogger who nominated you. Do not forget to link to their blogging website.
– Answer all the questions they have given you.
– Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers of your choice.
– Ask them 7 questions.

Matt’s Questions for Me
1. What is your chronic illness or disability?
Unfortunately there’s more than one, but my fibromyalgia, lymphedema, lipedema, and spinal damage/disease seem to be my worst enemies at the moment.

2. What do you wish people would understand about your chronic illness or disability?
I can be fine one moment then practically bedridden the next day, at least walking the day after, then back to relying on a claw walker just to use the bathroom, and then back to doing well for a day or two. I never know what it will be from moment to moment. But God is still my strength even when I am weak.

3. What helps you to keep going?
The love of God ❤

4. What do you do on down days?
Pray, sing hymns while doing puzzle books or watching TV, write poetry, WordPress, and on really down downs I just lay in the arms of Jesus, trusting in His promises to love me at my weakest.

5. What is your favorite comfort food?
pasta cans… particularly Chef Boy-ar-dee Spaghetti or Lasagna. There’s something about the sauce that is healing and soothing to a sore throat and a queasy tummy.

6. If you binge watch shows, do you prefer Netflix, Hulu or other service?
Our household tends to binge on Roku or PureFlix.

7. How do you feel about your doctors?
I must say first that I am grateful to the Lord for the help He sends me.
My health is complex and complicated. I pray for my doctors, even the ones who are frustrated, or have given up. Praise God for the ones who don’t give up!

  1. Congratulations Gail. Well deserved. It is rough when you feel great one day and not so great the next but because of it people don’t understand when you don’t feel bad. Or they think it can’t be that bad, she was just fine yesterday. Thank you for thinking about me. I just had to follow youR blog AGAIN. I have had to do this several times in the past couple of weeks. Me and WP seem to play this game. I hope they are enjoying it, me not so much LOL 🙂 I will get this done and posted as soon as I can, maybe today 🙂 LORD, thank You for continuing to bless Gail 🙂

    1. PTL! Thank you, Margaret! He is so generous!
      It is rough. To find a positive, I have found a rich community on WP who understand as well. And of course, our Savior knows.
      I think I know what you’re talking about. Every time I go to my own blog page it tells me to follow when I already do… lol. I’ve stopped worrying about it. A good place to see if you follow someone is in your comments and likes notification box to the right. It’s usually more accurate. The fun of WP. 😉
      Me and God love you, Sister! ❤

    1. PTL! Thank you, Caz!
      I love sudoku. Such an addiction.
      I tend to tear out the answer pages then work my way to the front, doing the extreme/expert/hard first. That way I know how many are still left in the book. 🙂
      My son’s high school math teacher introduced the class to them. He got me addicted. I got my mom addicted. Then Irene a family friend got interested.
      I love the 16 x 16, and the 24 x 24, the jigsaw sudoku, alphabet sudoku, the challengers, and more! 🙂
      I love one called Word Games too, and Bible Crosswords, Crypto-Families and much more. A neuropsychologist that tests and treats brain damage told me he could tell I did puzzles and that they were a variety. He said it’s true puzzles are exercise for the brain. 🙂

  3. Congratulations, Gail. You deserve it. Your experience with chronic illness is very uplifting. You do not allow your illness to define who you are and your total trust in the Lord will be rewarded. You are in my prayers. Have a blessed week in the Lord.

  4. Gail, congrats on the award! But my heart breaks for you with so many physical challenges you do have. However, I KNOW that GOD has you in HIS hands and helps you through each day. Please let me know how I can pray for you when you need it. It is one thing I can do at least long distance. But just know this…….YOU ARE LOVED!!!
