Keep Climbing...

Monday, October 24, 2011



Spark People Translation

For most of us, things don’t just happen overnight. With as many blessings as you might possess, you still have to work to make progress. This might not be an easy path to follow. More likely than not, you may not be able to take shortcuts, may not be able to skip steps. Don’t give up. Keep climbing towards your goals. Hard work is the key. Do you want a raise at work? You’re going to have to prove yourself; it probably is not going to be handed to you. Be consistent, and try rewarding yourself for each successful step you take towards your goal. That will keep you motivated. Take one small victory at a time, and keep climbing.

Up-date :(

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Hello my Friend's,

As it stands now there is very little doctor's can do. She is connected to various IV medications and is on a continuous kidney machine...Her blood work is totally out of whack and doctor's are not able to stabilize the situation, it is in God's Hand's now. Please pray for her daughter and grandson's, they are devastated as all of us are.

Thank you for continued prayers. There is not much else to report on so will leave this in the Hand's of God who loves our dear friend more than we ever could.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you for all your prayer support for my friend and for her daughter and 2 grandson's. This is so appreciated.

Love, Hugs and God's Blessings... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Jesus I pray your Grace in this situation.

Jesus when You took my son Grant to be home with You in Heaven. First, it was hard for me to hear that you were going to do that and then one month later Grant was home with You, it was harder still to have him gone.

Grant's body gave him great pain while he was here on earth. It was difficult to watch him suffer so much. For me it was a relief when You took Grant to be with You in Heaven, yet at the same time, my arms and heart ached to love him. Jesus, You have been with me ever since the day You told me that Grant would behome with You in Paradise. You have never failed to comfort me when I needed it. Jesus on the day of Grant's funeral, You baptized me in the Holy Spirit and I walked in power with You in my saddness.

Jesus I learned when Grant was taken to heaven, that You can take me through my deepest hurts/trials and never fail me. You were always present and I thank You Jesus for the healing I got from that Trial.

Jesus, please be with my sister, her family and friends in this situation. In Your name Jesus, I pray this. Amen.
