emoticon for all of your kindness. I believe it hurt worse when my brother was sick and before he died as I could hear him go down and down.
I'm so thrilled he accepted the Lord. He was the last one of my family into the fold. I have one remaining brother and he was the first person I ever won to the Lord. All the rest have died and waiting for us.

I am going to have a stress test the 16th of January to see if my cardiologist thinks I would be safe to have knee replacements. I sure need them as I have a fear of falling. Both knees bend in.

I am way behind so hope you read this blog. I finally did acknowledge all of the goodies but behind on e-mails.

I still need work done on my computer.

So lots going on. Seems I have doctor's appointments a lot. Today was the dentist, Tuesday the ear doctor, Wednesday the house cleaner, Hair fixed on Friday then week end preparing for church and church on Sunday. Busy, busy, busy.

God bless all of you.

Irene emoticon emoticon

    You do sound busy. Let us know if and when you're scheduled for knee surgery. If you have it and need a good team, click on the Knee/Hip replacement team that I am on. You can get questions answered there.

  Irene, you are so right that life is for the living and living means keeping busy with untold numbers of "things" that need to be done that the world considers important but really are not all that important for our eternal living quarters LOL.

I am so thankful you have your family waithing for you because that will be a time of happy reunions yes and amen.

All that we can do is what Holy Spirit has laid out for each of us to do with each new day. Just so long as we keep following His leading then we will be in His perfected will for us. And being in His perfected will is the important way to live life on this earth.

You are deeply loved by heaven above. emoticon

    God has a knack of using people for just such purpose during difficult times. While as Christians, we celebrate the life our families have in eternity, we still mourn the loss felt by their absence.

May the doctor give you the information needed to made wonderfully informed choices. The transition from two legs, three legs (cane), then four-six legs (walker) are major milestones that take their own toll on the psyche. May God give you that special peace (Shalom) that gives you great comfort.

    Irene, I'm so glad your brother accepted the Lord before he passed away and you can rest a bit easier knowing that he did. Yes, the hardest part is when we know our loved ones are going downhill and we have to see/hear them suffer. That happened to my sister who passed away in April and as the saying goes 'we were glad her suffering ended'.

You do keep so busy my friend and right now I think that's a good thing. Doctor appts take up a lot of time and with the stress test coming up in January, I hope you'll get the nod to have knee replacements done. That would take care of one health problem!

Take care of YOU, do what's best for YOU and get some rest and good sleeps.
Love you,

    Irene, I know what you mean, it is hard seeing, and hearing a loved one go down hill. I keep you in my daily prayers. You are always so supportive and dedicated to all of us.
I worked the church food bank this morning, got my Christmas cards addressed this afternoon, tomorrow I get hair done, Wed. a Friend's Son is bringing her in to see me. She don't drive and he does this every year at Christmas. I always bake him double chocolate brownies with a lot of nuts for doing that. We exchange our little gifts, have tea and dessert and chat. He used to go outside with Brooks and sit and talk, and he is going to miss him a lot. Yes, time flies, and I pray that if you need and want the knee surgery that your heart is in good enough condition.

Hugs and prayers
