As most of you know I didn't feel well Monday.
I most of the day Monday and Monday night.
Sunday had been a very stressful day although God moved mightily in the service and used me to minister to some people. I returned home after hours of being in
and having lunch and listening to the problems of a friend who needed to talk. Sunday morning at church a lady friend came up to me and said "You are always praying for someone else, I'm going to pray for you".
Then she came and sat with me. It is difficult at times being alone.
Tuesday I woke up feeling good and went to the dentist but that night only slept 4 hours.
Wednesday had several errands to catch up on so ran around doing them.
Wednesday went to bed at 11:00 and slept until 3:00 and couldn't go back to sleep so got back up got my serviced and tires rotated, then to Walgreen's, filled up with gas and to lunch. After lunch went by and picked up some filters which must be cut to size. Then on the my doctor's appointment which was at 2:15.
Got home around 4:00, took a nap, washed a load of clothes and am on Spark.
Had company also after my nap.
Tomorrow I get my hair done and hope It will perk me up when I look
I missed my TOPS meeting Monday as I slept through the afternoon and didn't feel well. A lot of stress this week.
I should have written on the huddle "I need support" I guess.
Yesterday I went to the bridge (on our side) and met the pastors son to do my mission business. Also prayed with him and for Mexico of course.
During our talk I asked him how things were going in Mexico. He said it is bad. He let me know some had been killed in Reynosa and other areas of Mexico. Also whereas they had 7,000 national guards protecting Reynosa, now they have 10,000. That seems like an enormous amount but still the killings continue.
The church is doing great and he said they have a lot of brand new people. People who did not attended other churches but people God sent in to hear the gospel for the first time.
My friend Sandy went with me to the border for the first time. She has been in Mexico a few times with me but never to the border. Then we did some other business which needed to be done and had lunch.
It is good that we live only a mile apart as we have known each other for many years and we both lost our husbands. Of course both of us have a lot of friends, attend different churches and have different activities.
Again I say Thank you and God bless you. Please continue to pray for Mexico and for our area as some of the violence is leaking over on this side. The main problem is drugs.
I WAS CORRECTED ON THE NATIONAL GUARD AT REYNOSA. IT IS FOR ALL THE BORDER TOWNS IN OUR AREA ON THE MEXICAN SIDE.
Let me tell you what happened to me in the snow one night many years ago.
Two friends and I were at a conference in Oklahoma City. They lived close to Joplin Missouri so I was going to drive them home and return to Tulsa, Oklahoma for another conference.
We were dressed in kind of button down house coats with our coats over them when we started out. Never leave home like that!
Anyway we couldn't sleep that night so decided to get up and start home. We didn't know it was snowing until we were all packed and ready to go. Well, we got outside and the snow was really coming down and real deep. Young and foolish me (I was driving) started out anyway.
The snow began to come down so hard we could not see. The windshield wiper could not keep up. I had to get out ever once in a while and clean off the windshield. The only way we could make it was because it was on a straight turnpike with no curves and we could see only the tail lights in front of us of the few cars foolish enough to get out. Finally I prayed and said God Make this snow not touch my car as it had got so I couldn't clean the windshield at all.
I got in and started going again. The snow kept coming toward me but it did not hit the windshield. It looked like it raised over the car and just went over us. I asked the ladies to look to see where the snow was landing on the car. They said it is not landing and the windows are clearing.
I made it to Tulsa and we had to go on to Joplin. It had quit snowing but I could not pull up close to the toll booth to pay the toll as my tires were iced in. I had to get out and knock the snow off from around the tires. We stopped and got some coffee and took off for Joplin. The highway was now dry. When I got there I took a nap and drove back to Tulsa for the conference.
Now That is a miracle from God for sure just as I know He does miracles for each of us when we don't even know it.
As for me "I will serve the Lord"
