prayer request

Friday, October 02, 2009

I typed up this whole blog yesterday, but had a computer glitch which deleted it before I had a chance to post it here. emoticon So now I'm attempting it once goes...
I'm asking all of you, my dear Sparkfriends, to keep my FIL in your thoughts & prayers today, as well as the rest of the family. Many of you know that he has suffered from renal cell cancer for the last several yrs. The cancer has spread pretty much all over his body now. He's a fighter, God bless him! He still goes about his business as if he were perfectly healthy & whole. He puts the rest of us to shame. Anyway, my MIL called yesterday to tell us that he was admitted to the hospital the day before (on Wed. afternoon). He had taken a pretty nasty fall earlier in the week and fractured his shoulder. On top of that, he was having so much difficulty breathing, even using his inhalers, that he decided to call the Dr. who told him to promptly go to the ER. It was discovered that he has pneumonia...again. Poor Dad! emoticon I wish there was more I could do, but God is taking care of him, so I know he is in the best possible hands.
Please add your prayers to ours for Dad's healing, whether it be a physical healing here on this earth, or a more permanent healing in his Heavenly Home with the Lord, where he wouldn't suffer any of this pain anymore. He is a mighty man of God (a pastor and missionary) and is more than ready and willing to be in the presence of His Savior anytime the Lord should call him. It's the rest of the family that would have trouble dealing with our loss.
Thanks to all of my dear Sparker friends for your prayers & support as we go through this difficult time.

    You FIL sounds like a man I would like to have known. I pray for perfect healing for him - May I ask where he ministered? My grandfather and great grandfather were ministers - those old men (and women)of faith are a hardy bunch. May God bless you and your family.

    I'll keep you and your FIL and family in my thoughts & prayers. I know what you're going through, having lost my father to kidney failure and bladder cancer that he fought, but came back to spread throughout the body. Dad was a fighter too, but when we admitted him to the hospital I believe he was prepared to fight it, but thought it would put a strain on all of us, and decided he ws through fighting. I miss him so much, but have great memories to comfort me. God bless you and your family.

Happy would-be birthday

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Today would have been my mother's birthday...her 89th. Unfortunately, she only lived to see her 80th. She lost her battle to cancer right after the year 2000 began.
I don't want to wallow in self pity here or anything like that. Just wanted to make a note of the day.
We all miss you, Mom!!

    How beautiful that you still honor your mom by marking her birthday publicly. My mother too was born in September 9th. My mom was a wonderful role model for me..she thought I could do ANYTHING..and because of her undying faith in me she made me believe I could too...thank you sweet lil momma! And a big happy b-day to your mother as well! emoticon emoticon I wonder if they still celebrate their birthdays in heaven...I bet they do!

    Isn't it nice that we can still honor our loved oncs after they are gone?

In the next couple of months, it will be the anniversary dates of losing my mom and dad - my mom in October three years ago and my dad in December two years ago. How I treasured the last few years with them!

Enjoy your memories today!

Yesterday I found a new team on SP called "Putting On a Gentle and Quiet Spirit". It's for women who want to be part of a Bible study on I Peter through the book of the same name by Elizabeth George. I can't wait to begin! Just got my book today. Join us if you'd like to!

Sept. 11th

Friday, September 11, 2009

Sept. 11th is here once again...always a reminder of how fragile life really is & how unexpectedly things can change in the blink of an eye. Let us remember those whose lives were forever touched by the events of this day 8 yrs ago. Lift up in prayer the families who lost loved ones and friends. Let them know we care and we will never forget.

    It seems like yesterday. As we pray for the families of those who lost their lives, also pray for our soldiers who keep us safe. Have a blessed day.

    Hi CAJ
My first thought this morning was for the families, they must miss their loved ones so much.
8 years ago today I was arriving back from a holiday and saw the news thinking at first the airport TV screens were showing a disaster movie.........and then the penny dropped.

I pray that our leaders find a way to end the terrorism that pervades our countries in a peaceful fashion.

    Our prayers go out to the families as they reflect on their loss.

Our Prayers go out to those who stand in harms way to protect against this to ever happen again.

Our prayers go out to our government leadership that they have wisdom beyond their years as they make decisions to protect this great land.

Kentucky tomorrow

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

WOW! Can't believe it's been a whole month since I've posted a blog entry! emoticon Oh's been a busy summer & not letting up yet...which brings me to the subject of this blog.
DD & I are leaving tomorrow for a trip to KY. Our flight leaves at 1:00 p.m. & the airport is an hour away, so we'll have to leave in the a.m. That means much to do tonight!! Still packing up last minute things, as always.
Also tonight, DS is coming home. He has decided that, since he has no job now, he is moving back home at the end of the month. emoticon We're very happy about that decision, but at the same time, a bit concerned about the transition into family living again. I'm sure it'll all work out though. He is going back to college this semester at the local community college, so he can't be keeping the kind of hours he has been accustomed to for the last year or so anyway. Thank God! emoticon
Wish DS was coming to KY with us, but he has to take a placement test tomorrow in order to schedule classes, which begin on Aug. 24th.
Lots going on, as you can see...hope I can keep my fitness routine going while we're away!! emoticon
Wish me luck!! emoticon
Thanks for stopping by my SP page!

    HI CAJ
what wonderful news. So sorry I couldn't talk earlier so wanted to catch up and now you're busy getting ready for the morning.
No worries we'll chat on your return and you can tell me if DD has wound you around her little finger and you ARE getting her that treat for being so brave emoticon.
Have in on your vacation, have a pleasant and safe journey, see you when you return emoticon emoticon
