Insurance is fixing my car!!

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

As you know, I've been 'praising God in the hallway' while I wait on the insurance company to come and look at my car.

Being A child of the Most High GOD means I trust Him and I will rise up again!

God made us all different, but He expects us to be true to ourselves and Him and His commandments.

We are a light shining in a dark world. emoticon

We should be kind and HONEST at all times. Especially when the stakes are high, showing that we trust our Father!!

After all, There is no point to life, without our personal relationship with GOD!


My left wrist and half way up the my left arm to my elbow is in constant pain, as well as my back and neck. I can hardly hold up my head....

This news emoticon came just as I was praising God that He can heal me. He is healing me even now, though He is using DR.'s this time, thus far.

The other man lied and his insurance company figured that out without even looking at my car.
I emoticon stopped because the law demands it....
The truth will set you free! And I'm free indeed emoticon

    So sorry you're in pain but glad that your car is being fixed! I guess this guy has lied before, for his insurance company to figure out what happened so quickly! God is truly good! Also, I'm sure his insurance company is paying your doctors......aren't they? They SHOULD be, that's the law...................... emoticon

How BIG is your problem?

My problems looked unsurmountable when I had yet another calamity: 1st the allergies, then pneumonia, and later the car accident with the other person in the accident LYING and no witnesses.

I've made a conscience decision to keep my eyes on God and no matter what I know He is bigger than whatever has been/could be thrown at me!

emoticon for all of the emoticon from my spark friends! I'm slowly recovering and I'm still thankful that I'm alive and able to move on with my life.

Once again, nothing has changed in my circumstance, yet.

But God has shown me a light at the end of this tunnel.

The most important thing is that I've reconnected with a church I ministered too while I was in New Orleans 3 years ago! I pray that GOD will be honored in my life, regardless of what is thrown my way.

the accident...

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

emoticon all of my spark friends emoticon for your prayers! Last night I decided I must see a DR. I hurt all over but the specific places that hurt worse cause me concern. My left wrist, neck shoulder upper back, and both hips though the left is more painful, ALL hurt! I guess I thought I would get better. emoticon That on top of not knowing where to go to find a dr and not wanting to drive again EVER brought me to this reality:
I went online since I don't Louisiana's laws and found out the best thing to do in this state, is get an attorney. When I spun the spark wheel an attorneys name was advertised in the center of the wheel. I called them last night, and today they sent a man, Shawn, out immediately to assess me and the car. He explained the reason my wrist hurt 'could be' from gripping the wheel so tightly during the wreck. It feels broken now. The news on my car isn't good, either. The attorney is advising me and I know I did the best thing to contact him.

I need to explain that I was so THANKFUL that I wasn't dead after the accident, even though I was shaking like a leaf, I felt as though I would be fine! (I was in shock) but a soon as I began driving, I felt the pain.

I'll spare you the details of the huge white emoticon SUV spinning out of control etc. etc. emoticon pray for the driver and any passengers, please! I don't see how they could have survived hitting the left cement barrier, my car, then spinning again and hitting the right barrier.
I have had nightmares every since this happened. If you've never been in an accident like this, you may not know the torment of reliving it in your dreams.

I praise God I'm alive and that I didn't get hurt worse than what I am. Tomorrow I see the dr and my attorney will get the accident report, even though it's only been 5 days, because he is an attorney! (I would have had to wait 10 days.)

I've had people say, "you should have gone by ambulance to the ER immediately!"

Yes emoticon but now I know that I was in shock. Reality is sinking in. I was on a bridge, there are so many worse things that could've happened! Tonight It feels like I've broken bones in my wrist......
I was told by the dr today, not to be surprised if I begin hurting worse as the amount of force that came against my body and the way I tensed up to protect myself.

I am so grateful for my spark friends and my family.

Please forgive me for not being uplifting, I don't like to admit when I'm not at my best,
but I HOPE you all understand.

I apologize IF THIS IS TOO LONG OR IF I'M RAMBLING... I've typed this with one hand. took forever!

I feel even more strongly that this state and this move is exactly what God wanted and where GOD wants me to be, even though.....
In ALL things with prayer and thanksgiving let your request be made known to God!! I am praying!!

    I don't think your blog was too long and you definitely weren't rambling! I so wanted to hear all about it and how you are doing now!

During the time of the accident, there are "fight or flight" hormones flowing and you don't feel the pain at that time. When those calm down, is when the pain starts. The doctor is right, too, tensing up and the force of the impact can make you very sore in the days to come!

Praise the Lord that you weren't hurt much worse, it could have been a lot more severe for you! God is watching over you and His angels were surrounding you during the accident.

Please keep us posted on what is happening. The SUV must have been traveling very fast to have hit all those obstacles PLUS you! Sorry you had to get a lawyer, but that is the best way to protect yourself! God Bless and CONTINUE to keep you!

emoticon for a rapid and complete recovery.........

I am sure your attorney will sort it out .. Hope you haven't broken anything .. I am sure your doctor will order X-rays. Sending love and hugs Susie xx emoticon emoticon

    Sigh........not for nothing, but I'm sure those "people" would have possibly thought different if they had received a BILL FOR AMBULANCE SERVICES! Let me tell ya, where I'm from, I've seen them and they can actually *bankrupt* people - it's absolutely SINFUL!

And it's such a shame that you had to go the attorney route to help you get what you need and deserve with all of that............such a shame that this country (and world, I guess, as well) has become so dependent on litigation in order to make people whole from unfortunate events like this!

I hope you prevail and recover as quickly as humanly possible!

    This is NOT too long, and you are NOT rambling.

I myself experienced a very bad car accident in 2001, where my car hit a large diesel patch on the road and slid at open-road speed into an oncoming van. The driver of the van had a smashed ankle, and I had to be helicoptered to hospital in a very bad way. I had fractured clavicle, multiple broken ribs on both sides - the left being life-threatening - and severe bruising. My abdomen 2 places looked like a plastic water hose had been inserted under the skin. My Dr said this was from the seat-belt tearing the muscle at high/speed-high impact. The bruising continued coming out for months.

I can assure you that it is perfectly normal to have night-mares as a result of what you experienced. I had them for years, and I would panic while driving when I had to go around a corners, too.

I ended up suffering from severe depression, and again, that is not uncommon in these situations. Do be aware of it, and seek help as soon as you notice you may have lost (or are losing) enjoyment of things you normally enjoyed, or sensitivity to noise, your moods may be lower OR other people notice any of these things.

I ended up having ongoing Therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which was very helpful.

Make sure that you Dr does x-rays and a thorough examination because you WILL be in a state that you probably haven't noticed a lot of things even now, OR may not remember to tell him some things.

Good luck and BIG hugs,

starting over

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Letting go is like watching pages of a book fly away and transform to something new!

Trying to stay here in OK when I know my family needs me is wrong and makes things harder. I'm so glad I know what I want to do, and I'm doing it this week!

Packing and moving is getting rid of all of the physical junk.....

Starting over in a new state, a new home, with new family members is not what I thought GOD had called me to.
But at this time, I KNOW I'm suppose to help my children, though grown, to re-establish a home close to one of our family members, my 12 year old granddaughter, Adie. She needs her dad and he needs us to make this a quick move!
It may be that her mom takes her to anther state. But she will never forget that we gave up everything to help her find balance in her life.
My son is determined that she will have a mom and a dad!
I'm happy for him and proud, too.
My daughter hated Oklahoma weather, and I'm very allergic to all the weather here. As you know, I have developed skin responses to my allergies so I must move, too. If I ever had a question about leaving my sisters, I know now!
My daughter is also pregnant with hr 2nd high risk pregnancy so she went 1st to set up a home for all of us, while she can still travel.
I will be leaving on the 30th of this month.
Hard? yes. Easy? yes!! I know God is in this middle of this and working to save my entire family.
Thank you for your prayers as I have to pack today. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon If it fits in my car, it goes! My son will bring the rest! Storage units will be used in the mean time.
LOVE you my spark friends. Hopefully, I'll be able to stay in touch even as I travel. I don't expect any down time.

I want you to enjoy the scenery on your way out here and try to enjoy the freedom of the drive you probably won't ever make again. God is holding on to that steering wheel with you!!!

Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose. Tom Krause quotes

It wasn't courage, it was self confidence.
I tried ALWAYS knowing I would win! Maybe come in 2nd, but always be in the running with the best. When I did come in 2nd, I would try until I won 1st place!
Now when I try, it's COURAGE.


I think this can be a smart way to live:

Do one thing every day that scares you. ~Anonymous
