I had a coughing fit this morning around 2am. I thought that I would never get back to sleep. But I did. I had one after I got up this morning.
Dad has to have a fasting blood test this morning. I know that he can't eat at least 3 hours before has it but I'm not sure about his meds. I'll wait until he comes out of the bathroom to ask him.
A Very Present Help
by Annie Johnson Flint
He's helping me now at this moment,
Though I may not see or hear,
Perhaps by a friend far distant,
Perhaps by a stranger near,
Perhaps by a spoken message,
Perhaps by the printed word;
In ways that I know and know not
I have the help of the Lord.
He's keeping me now - this moment,
However I need it most
Perhaps by a single ange,
Perhaps by a mighty host,
Perhaps by the chain that frets me,
Or the walls that shut me in;
In ways that I know and know not,
He keeps me from harm and sin.
He's guiding me now - this moment,
In pathways easy or hard,
Perhaps by a door wide open,
Perhaps by a door fast barred,
Perhaps by a joy withholden,
Perhaps by a gladness given;
In ways that I know and know not,
He's leading me up to heaven.
He's using me now - this moment,
And whether I go or stand,
Perhaps by a plan accomplishment,
Perhaps when He stays my hand,
Perhaps by a word in season,
Perhaps by a silent prayer;
In ways that I know and know not,
His labor of love I share.
I had to restart the computer this morning because it needed to update itself and it was getting slow.
Lady didn't want me to get out of dad's recliner for some odd reason. She would get up in my lap and lay down. Whenever I get up, I almost have to push her out of the recliner to get up.
Today was a long day. Dad had his blood test plus an EKG and a chest Xray. And then he went ot his chiropractor appointment.
While dad took his oldest brother to Peoria, I was with my aunt. It was a good thing we got more NyQuill and cough drops because I had a coughing fit.
I think that my period is almost over. It's slowing down at least.
I think that I might go to bed early tonight with all the coughing that I did today. It has worn me out a lot this afternoon. Plus the sleep might help my headache some.

I am still sleepy after taking NyQuill this morning. I need to wake up to enjoy the day.
Looks like it might be a beautiful day. Too bad I'm sick. If was feeling any better, I would be outside walking Lady.
Soul, Soul Winning
by F.W. Davis
I feel God touch my soul
I felt God touch my soul today -
What holy, tranquil rest!
What blessed hop through faith in Him
Came surging through my breast!
My mind was clear, my heart made pure,
Touch by His sacred flame,
Plus every joy I could possess,
Through faith in Jesus' name.
One touch from God, our Friend divine,
Give strenght each trying hour,
And leads us courage, grace and love
To foil the tempter's power.
Touch me again, dear Lord, I pray -
I need Thee, oh, so much!
Please keep me zealous for Thy cause,
Encouraged by Thy touch.
Dad got up earlier than usual this morning. I don't think that he has any appointments today. I know that tomorrow he has a blood test, a chiropractor appointment and taking his oldest brother to the eye doctor in Peoria.
I was right about the beautiful weather. The sun is out and no clouds in the sky. But the temperature is going to be in the low 50s. By the weekend it's going to be in the 60s.
It's a good thing that dad got up because his oldest brother just called to let him know that he got his eye appointment for tomorrow at 2pm. I'm glad that he was the one that answered the cell phone because I hate answering it when his brother calls.
This morning my thoughts traveled along
To a place in my life where days are since gone
Beholding an image of what I use to be
As visions were stirred, and God spoke to me
He showed me a Warrior, a soldier in place
Positioned in Heaven, yet I saw not the face
I wateched the Warrior fought enemies
That came frmo the darkness with destruction for me
I saw as the Warrior would dry away tears
As all of Heaven's Angels hovered so near
I saw many wounds of the Warrior's face
Yet weapons of warfare were firmly in place
I felt my heart weeping, my eyes held so much
As god let me feel the Warrior's prayer touched
I thought "how familiar" the words that were prayed
The prayers were like lightning that never would fade
I said to God "please, the Warrior's name"
He gave no reply, He chose to refrain
I asked "Lord, who is broken that need such a prayer?"
He showed me an image of myself standing there
Bound by confussion, lost and alone
I felt prayers of the Warrior carry me home
I asked "Please show
Me Lord, This Warrior
I watch and I wept, for that Warrior - was you!
I don't have the sore throat but still have the coughs. They're annoying. But it's a good sign that I'm feeling better.
We had to go to Macomb today for the garage here in town. We had to take his home computer down to a repair shop. Plus we got to see some of the people he use to work with down there. We've been wanting to go down there to see everyone but we've been busy. No, dad didn't work at the computer repair shop. He worked at a factory down there. He retired from down there in 2001.
I'm surprised that I'm not tired right now. Usually I'm tired right about now even when I'm sick. I will be in a while.
Dad went back to the fairgrounds to finish up the mowing that he didn't do yesterday. It was only 20 minutes though but at least he got out of the house. I was stuck here even though I was sick.
I'm on a full blown period. Just have to remember not to cover that areat when I go to bed because it makes my period flow heavier.

I'm feeling a little bit better than I did when I got up this morning. When I got up, I was coughing up a storm. But after I took some NyQuill and a cough drop, I started to feel better. Plus a nap in dad's recliner.

One day I prayed that God would lay a soul upon my heart
And in my prayer I promised him that I would do my part.
I'd call on strangers, write some cards, and use the telephone;
Then trust Him - in His wisdom- to head me to that one.
Just then my doorbell rang so hard it shook me from my prayer.
Before me stood a ten-year-old, his head and fet were bare.
His small, dark face was far from clean, his speech was bold and rough.
His brother said, "He's awful mean"; his manner said, "I'm tough."
But as I stood there at the door, the Saviour whispered low,
"Here's the that soul I charged to you. Oh, do not let him go!"
That's why I baked these cookies; Ive put them out to cool.
For my small friend - no longer tough - he's in my Sunday school.
We will be going to Galesburg today because dad needs t oget a couple of his medicines.
I'm feeling better. My coughs now are being caused by a dry throat. But I took something for it just in case it's what I'm trying to get rid of.
Today was a beautiful day. Not too cool and not too warm. Plus the sun was out. But it's starting to cloud over. I think that we're suppose to get rain.
Dad is hoping to findout on Thursday what time next Thursday his surgery is going to be.
I'm feeling better tonight. I'm still coughing but not as bad as I was this morning.
I think that I'm going to be starting my period soon. I had a little spotting earlier today and I'm having some cramping now. But it's gone. Plus I'm a lot more hungry than I am usually. But I'm not letting it get to me. I'm not sure if the hunger is emotional, stress, or craving. It's been this way since before I started losing weight. I know that it seems strange but it's true.
I just thought of something of my mom tonight when I was in the shower. We had a 1972 VW Super Beatle when I was growing up. My mom named her Betsy Lou Flowerbush. Dad bought Betsy Lou in 1974 but mom and dad didn't sell it to her oldest brother until 1986. She was in blue.
Looks like they kicked off the one person they should of kicked off weeks ago. Tracey the b***h. At least she can't play her mind games anymore to the remaining contestants. But she does look better than she did when she started the show.
I hope that I can get another good night sleep like I have been even though I've been taking NyQuill. Plus the time changed has helped too.
I haven't chatted with anyone of my friends on Facebook all day. I might before I go to bed tonight.
Lady has been keeping an eye on me even though I've been sick. She would be in my lap asleep. It doesn't matter if I'm asleep or a wake, she'll be there.
Dad went out to the fairgrounds and mowed for almost 2 hours. At least he got to do something for a while.

I was feeling really horrible this morning. I took some NyQuill and fell asleep in dad's recliner for over an hour. I woke up when dad woke up. I didn't eat my breakfast until I gave dad his medicine and got onto the computer.
It was such a wake up call when I found out who my ghost was. Now I REALLY need to get buckled down and get this weight off. I don't want to gain the weight back plus a lot more.
Lord, Here Our Prayer
by Vic McGrew
Oh, that we could turn back the hands of time
And live as in by-gone days,
When men and nations look to Thee, Lord,
And on bended knee gave Thee praise;
When the rulers of nations stood firm for the right
And the plean for liberty and justice was heard.
Give us men who stand free from compromise,
Who stand true and loyal to Thy Word,
Bravely proclaiming, "Thus saith the Lord,"
And will shout it till the wole world has heard.
By Divine decree repeal the mandate
That revents prayer in schools being said.
Give power to the voices of the loyal and true
And rule that Holy Scriptures can be read.
Lord, hold back the tied of vice and crime
That engulfs our sinful world today,
And send a Holy Ghost revival, in Jesus' Name, we pray.
Forgive us of all our sinful ways
And our trusting in the wisdom of man,
May we look to Thee, Lord, to heal our nation's woes
And trust You to cleanse and save us, Amen.
Today has felt like a long day. Too long. dad had a chiropractor appointment this morning, spent some time at Target and at my stepcousin's business, and then to dad's doctor appointment.
Well, dad found out the results of the MRI and the doppler. The MRI didn't show any strokes. But the doppler did show blockage on one side at 60 to 70%. They want him to do another doppler in 6 months.

Home is a place where you heal.
That place of peace in a storm.
Home is a place of comfort.
A place that is safe from harm.
Home is a place of protection.
Of forgivness, love and joy.
Home is a place of refuge
For every girl and boy.
Home is a place of teaching.
There's only one way to live.
Home is a place of sharing
And learning how to give.
So make your home in heaven.
Look to Jesus and make it right.
It will be a heaven on earth
Pointing to heaven so bright.
I had a healthy supper tonight. We went to Subway tonight and I had a 6" Cold Cut Comb Sub with Baked Lays and a lemonade/unsweetened tea mix drink. I had lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, and pickles on the sandwich. Let's just say that I didn't feel guilty afterwards.
My sister-in-law asked me who I was talking about in yesterday's status on here (and Facebook). I had to tell her that it was me.
A lot of farmers got to be in the fields yesterday and today with the beautiful weather. I think that we're suppose to get more of this weather this week. So the famers better get to moving on getting their crops out.
I cannot believe that I took an hour and a half long nap in dad's recliner this morning. Usually NyQuill doesn't kick in that quickly. And it didn't take me too long to get from the kitchen to dad's recliner.

The sun is finally out and it's about time too. Just wish that we had this instead of rain last week.
I finally got some sleep last night but fell asleep in dad's recliner anyway. I took a dose of NyQuill this morning. At least I haven't gained any weight with whatever I have. That's a plus.

Love is a ver complex thing.
It brings you to tears, or makes you sing.
And just when you think you've had your fill,
Your heart seems to move, and you know it's real.
So many people take love for granted,
And when it's gone, they become disenchanted.
Love is made to fill you heart,
But oftentimes, it tears you apart.
I have a Friend Whose love is undying.
Though at times, I'm sure it's trying.
He's here, and there, and everywhere.
And in times of trouble, I'm sure He cares.
He said He would never leave nor forsake me,
And when I die, in His arms He'll take me.
I hope that you know Him, His name is Jesus.
He's here for eternityh, and will always love me.
You know what motivates me? The outfit that I wear every Sunday. My olive drab green skirt and my camel colored long sleeve shirt. The outfit is smaller than I use to wear about this time last year. Let's hope it helps me lose more weight.
I think that I found out my ghost woman when I was asleep last night. I was dreaming that I was at a homeless shelter, I heard my name being called out. I saw her. She was me but a lot bigger. At least 600 to 700 pounds heavier. What a wakeup call for me! I better change what I'm eating and exerise more.
We went to Galesburg after church and lunch. I needed some more NyQuill and cough drops. I took some NyQuill a few hours before supper and I starting cough on the way to supper.
Today has felt tlike a long day since changing the clocks back. I almost got up around 4am. But I got up just befoer 5:30am. My usual time.
I don't know why but I was day dreaming about the guy that I've had a crush on for years. I have no idea why I had him on my mind today but I did.
Plus today I was thinking about the dream that I had last night. My mom kept her word about finding out who my ghost woman was. The last person that I thought it could be was me.
Here Am I
Hark! the voice of Jesus calling
"Who will go and work today?
Fields are white, the harvest waiting,
Who will bear the sheaves away?"
Lound and long the Master calleth,
Rich reward He offers thee;
Who will answer, gladly saying,
"Here am I, O Lord, send me"?
If you cannot cross the ocean
And the distant lands explore
You can find a duty nearer=
It is even at your door;
If you cannot speak like angels,
If you cannot preach like Paul,
You can show them how the Lord lived,
An example unto all.
If you cannot be the watchman
Standing hight upon the wall,
Pointing out the path to Zion.
Offering life and peace to all;
With your prayers and with your labors
You can do what God demands.
You can be like faithful Aaron.
Holding up the prophet's hands.
Our minister is doing better but the rest of his family wasn't. Most of last week they had above 100 degree temps.
