so much is happening!! BALANCE PLEASE
We have been through a true test of our faith in GOD and He came through!! Our premmie babe, Cyrek, was born 33 days early. He is perfect in every way and weighs almost 7 pounds at 6 days old!
On the 8th, Tif, his mom = my daughter, was rushed to the ER when they thought she may have had a mini stroke(s). It was a test for me to be with the 2 grand babies, and my dear SIL while she was there at the hospital. I couldn't stay with her as there isn't room in the car for 4 adults, and 2 baby seats.
Her husband and the premmie who is breast fed, went on the 2nd ride to the hospital while I stayed home with Ava, the 2 year old. You know how busy a 2 year old is! I didn't have time to fret.
I prayed, and so did many of my family members as well as my SPARK FAMILY! I spoke faith, knowing GOD was in control. I knew no matter what, GOD was in the middle of this trial.
I also stayed in reality and didn't let it sway my faith in GOD. They ran many tests, and sent her home at 6 pm the following night, with a referral to an ophthalmologist. No mini strokes and they also ruled out preeclampsia! PTL! The symptoms had disappeared~~
I was raised not to run to the DR. for every little thing. Tif was also, as she's my daughter. She is very aware of her symptoms and is also studying for a career n the medical field. We've learned to respect each other though we are very different. Our extremes have helped to bring us both into a balance.
I'm at one extreme in belief that GOD heals!! I've learned that DR.s heal, too. I pray Tif sees that GOD heals by using DR.s as well as by faith in HIM.
New lessons I'm learning:
I think Audrey Hepburn says it best:
By choosing GOD's way through His word, the Holy Bible, we are the author of our tomorrows: HE will guide us!
This is one prayer that I prayed while Tif was in the hospital (among many others) that allowed me to sleep peacefully during this trial:
Proverbs 27:17King James Version (KJV)
17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. (and family, too, if we let HIM do His perfect work in us)

New York subways are under terrorist alert this morning~ Christians, children and people all over the world are being martyred or murdered. The world is at war!!
Teenagers and young people are committing suicide at a higher rate than ever.
So, why bother to take care of ourselves by eating right and exercising daily? Who really cares anyway?
We must continue to care! We must be ABLE to help others when all seems hopeless. If I can't function well because I'm not eating right or give into depression, I'm going to fall apart! True in the worldly view, I'm not important, but all around me people are suffering. I can make a difference and so can you if we remember to look up to our creator when we are tempted to give in and over indulge!!
Some people in the world don't have water to drink, and we fall down at drinking 8 glasses per day!
We must forgive ourselves and keep doing our best to follow after the highest reasonable goal we can set. Dont fall apart when others laugh or scorn at our attempt. Each of us have a battle we fight, after all.
We are as capable to today as we will ever be! It's by our position in faith that we can continue to fight this battle and eat right, drink water and exercise!! We are not alone......
I may not ever meet my Spark friends, but I pray for you! Let's pray for New York city and our world today!! We do MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
Snoopy says it best!!
PS My scales are moving in the right direction now!
