ANOTHER MIRACLE

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

As many of you know this is my rest day.
As you know when I say rest day I mean much of the time after 2:00 p.m. will be spent in the little room preparing for a colonoscopy Tomorow (Thursday).
Since I had to have a driver I asked one of my best friends to drive me. She said yes but decided she was going to take a trip instead.
Now what was I to do? emoticon
The young ones work, one best friend who is young is having her own physical problems right now.
I don't have many older friends and they have problems of their own or don't drive.
Oh me, oh my.
The hospital would not dismiss me if I did not have a driver.
I asked about waiting awhile until I could drive.
They let me know I could not drive all day.
Then a lady who used to be a leader at TOPS and we still get together some came to my mind.
I called her and as soon as she answered said, "I have been thinking of you and was going to call you but now I don't have to".
I said, I have a favor to ask and told her my problem.
She has a handicapped child and has a caregiver for the child. She said let me call the caregiver to see if she can come earlier. Don't worry it will be fixed.
I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Within five minutes she called. She will be driving me.
For years I was caregiver for my husband and so glad I was there for him.
But now I always wonder who will care for me when and if I need it.
GOD NEVER FAILS. HE IS MY CAREGIVER.
Thank each of you for your e-mails, goodies, etc. and especially for your prayers.
I know many of you are going through similar things and my prayers are with you.
Irene

    Irene, how fortunate you are. Leave it to a Caretaker to be the one to step up and help someone :)
I am sure she may need help down the road herself and you would help her.
Your probably always going to find someone, because you help so many other people.
The Church is another good place to ask for help :)
I will be thinking about you at your appointment.

I am glad that you were able to find someone for tomorrow. I also think you know that your friends here in Spark always have you in their prayers.
Rest today, knowing that everything is taken care of for tomorrow.

    They say that a busy person is usally the one that can find time for something else, and get it done. So it is with people who give - they seem to be able to give a little more. Thank the Lord for this lady who went the extra mile to help you. And I love your declaration of God being your caretaker. Truly He is, and He'll provide for you when the time comes.
I was just reading this morning: if you can't make yourself grow and inch, why do you worry about how you're going to do anything else? God takes care of the sparrows and clothes the lillies and He knows even before we ask Him, what our needs are. So glad you have her to take you to the hospital appointment. Hubby and I prayed together for you this morning and will tomorrow as well. God bless.

TOLD MY OVERWEIGHT DOCTOR ABOUT SPARK

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Today was fun day. Not SONday. emoticon
It was the day I went to my doctor and endured the sitting for two hours.
Yes, I said emoticon 2 hours.
What was going on?
Who had an emergency?
When the doc finally came in he said he had hit a dog on his way to work.
He called 911 because he had hit a emoticon
They told him to call the police. The police didn't answer so he turned around and went back. He had not stopped since the traffic was heavy.
When he got back he found the dog in a neighbor's arms and the dog had a broken leg.
Workers had let the dog out and he had run into the street.

NOW HE WAS VERY PLEASED WITH MY WEIGHT LOSS
He said TOPS was good for me.
I said yes and Sparks online was also good so gave him a spark card and told him it was free.
He is emoticon(well not quite that bad) and has nurses emoticon also. They wrote sparkpeople.com on a bulletin board and hope will be looking it up and recommending it to some of his patients also.
emoticon emoticon
Get the word out about SPARK

He wasn't so happy about some other things so I am to have an MRI on a knee Monday as it locks on me sometimes then later will be having a colonoscopy.
My very favorite thing to do!!!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
So trying to get this body back into shape.

You are doing a great amount of work on yourself, sorry you are going to go through some tests, but you will have good results. Doctors seem to think they don't have to be on time to see patients, at least people should be told ahead of time there are delays.
Congratulations on telling them about Spark. There was an article the other day about the high rate of obesity in doctors. Maybe someone in his office will check us out. You can only give the information.

UPDATE ON MEXICO

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Several gun battles reported in Matamoros; CBP temporarily closed bridges

September 14, 2010 8:17 AM

Matamoros is about 60 miles from us. It seems they just move up and down the border.
I was able to take what I needed to take to our side of the bridge to give to the pastor's family earlier.
God makes a way and we are believing God is going to move in this situation.
Greater is He that is in us than He who is in the world.

The Brownsville Herald
Mexican authorities have confirmed several shootouts through the streets of Matamoros, while US. authorities confirmed the temporary closing of two international bridges.

The shootouts took place late Monday night and early this morning for approximately two hours between the Mexican Military and various groups of armed gunmen from both the Gulf Cartel and the Zetas, said a Mexican law enforcement official who asked that his name not be released citing security reasons.

The shootouts were reported in various areas as the gunmen fought and moved spraying the streets with gunfire and multiple grenades. The areas where the shootouts took place include Fraccionamiento Rio, Colonia Del Carmen, Colonia Jardin, which is near the Gateway International Bridge, Calle Sexta, Lauro Villar, which is near the Los Tomates Bridge or Veterans Bridge.

As a result of an incident in Matamoros, Tamaulipas and at the request of the Mexican government, traffic was halted on both the Gateway and B&M international bridges for about 20 minutes as a precautionary measure, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Eddie Perez.

“As always, CBP's top priority is the safety of the traveling public and our officers,” Perez said. “CBP is in constant communication with our partners in Mexico and we continue to monitor any and all situations.”

Hours earlier, on Monday afternoon, a grenade attack was reported at the offices of the Mexican Attorney General's Office-- PGR in Matamoros which lies along Calle Sexta, just a few blocks from the Gateway International Bridge, the source said. No shots were fired during the grenade attack.

According to the source, a vehicle drove by the office and threw a grenade at it causing some damage to some SUVs that were parked outside. The SUVs had been seized in another case and were being held as evidence.

The PGR office in Matamoros has become a regular target for members of organized crime. Last month at least four separate grenade attacks took place.

Reports of gunfire and explosions in Matamoros shortly preceded a request from the Mexican government to stop traffic into Mexico overnight.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Spokesman Eddie Perez said it happened after midnight, and the sheriff’s department halted traffic at the Gateway and B&M international bridges for about 20 minutes.

Perez said CBP will continue monitoring this situation, maintaining its priority for its officers and the traveling public.

ANOTHER MIRACLE

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

A friend told me of a miracle that God did for him today so I told him I would write a blog of a miracle God did for me since it was too much to write on his spark mail.
THIS HAPPENED YEARS AGO.
I was travelling in Oklahoma. Two lady friends and I had been to a convention in a church in Oklahoma City. Convention was over. We couldn't sleep so decided to get up and drive back to Joplin Missouri where they lived.
We packed our stuff and opened the door. We couldn't believe our eyes. Snow everywhere and deep.
We decided to go anyway. I had no chains and don't think any snow tires but went across the turnpike. What guided me was the tail lights of the cars in front of me. The windshield started getting covered with snow. The windshield wipers couldn't keep up with it.
So out I would get clean off the windshield and go again. Finally I just couldn't keep up with it so I prayed.
Lord let the snow not touch my windshield. Then I saw the snow begin to rise over the car and it did not hit the windshield. I asked the ladies to look and see where the snow was hitting. They said it was not hitting the car at all.
I got to the toll booth at Tulsa and tried to cut the wheels so I would be closer to the booth but they would not cut so I had to get out and knock the ice off from around the tires.
We stopped and had coffee and it cleared up and we drove on to Joplin.
Now if God can do that
HE CAN HELP US TO LOSE WEIGHT IF WE ARE DESPERATE ENOUGH.

Thank you for sharing your miracle with us. It certainly was there when you needed it. The problem I see for so many, is that they pray for help and don't recognize when the help appears. It is a blessing when one is alert to the power of God's answer. Your comment about God protecting us when we don't even realize it. We take to many things for granted and need to become more open to the answer.
Your blog is a great suggestion of what could happen in one's life.

He will never leave us nor forsake us so why should we think there is something He can't take care of for us! :) I am going to read this to my DH. He is struggling with his first ever kidney stone and this will encourage him! Thanks again for sharing!!

Blessings to you!!!

    God does so many things we can never imagine. He protects us when we don't even realize it.

HURRICANE

Monday, September 06, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Please pray for our area as a hurricane is supposed to come in soon right where Alex came in before (more or less).
The land is still soaked from Alex.
So many things going on all over the world.
Weird weather.
Murders.
Kidnappings.
I could go on and on.
This is not something presidents or kings can fix.
It is something which calls us to obey:
2 Chron. 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray,
and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
THEN will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
Hope everyone is having a good time today. I will leave about 5:30 for my friends unless it starts raining. The hurricane isn't supposed to come in until midnight someone said.
God bless you all.
Irene

    Well, it is causing tornadoes in our part of the state now! Several tornadoes this evening. Today I feel like my name is Job, but really he had it much worse! DS totaled his Explorer this AM on his way to work as water swept him off the highway.
DH still suffering with kidney stones and now tornadoes!
Thank you Lord you can get us through everything!! :)
God is So Faithful!

    We did not get rain in my town. I thought it hit in Brownsville and there was some damage done there and in other places close by as well as Harlingen and Weslaco.
It moved on up to Central Texas I think

    Irene
as the 11:00 news showed the It as a tropical storm that has hit land in Mexico, not calling for high winds but heavy rain moving north towards Brownsville, So there would be possible flooding, My thoughts are with you and your neighbors will stay safe. If so, You should stay in your house.

    You have our prayers, Irene. God still loves us in spite of our disobedience. I really don't understand that, but God is able.
Take care, dear Friend. emoticon Jane

    Praying for our people to turn to God and follow Him. 2 Chron. 7:14 This is a prayer I have said often. Hope you are able to go to your friends house and have a good time.
Blessings and hugs,
