Sat, 10 May 2014 22:03:03 EST FOOD PUSHERS PART 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5687438 Since I have bad balance and don't walk too good it is difficult to walk off. <BR> <BR> I thought it was so funny though that she helped with everything except holding the cake until I sat down when it went all over the floor and me. <BR> <BR> Actually it was only 2 bites of cake, not too much. <BR> <BR> They have coffee (which I don't drink because of essential tremor) and goodies after every service which I don't think is necessary and I always refuse but my pastors wife so wanted me ... Sun, 4 May 2014 20:02:13 EST FOOD PUSHERS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5687270 <em>44</em> <BR> <BR> It was pastor's <em>383</em> so after service they were serving cake. <BR> <BR> The pastor's wife who I love with all of my heart is a FOOD PUSHER. <BR> She asked if I wanted a piece of cake. <BR> I said no. She said but they are tiny and they were. She brought me a piece of cake and told me to sit down in one of the few chairs. <BR> <BR> Guess what happened? <em>334</em> I sat down in the chair and the cake went flying in the floor and all over me. <BR... Sun, 4 May 2014 14:58:32 EST I DID SOMETHING TODAY I HADN'T DONE IN OVER A YEAR http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5685399 Today I went out to buy gas and wash my car. They have a place where they give you 10 cents off per gallon if you buy a car wash. <BR> <BR> Well something happened to the car wash I guess but I had to have gas as my light was on and I sure didn't want to stand out beside the road begging for gas. Young girls might be able to do that but when you get older most people ignore you. <BR> <BR> Then I drove by a super store (HEB) down here. I decided if there was parking close by I would go i... Fri, 2 May 2014 00:52:20 EST DIVINE HEALING http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5678847 <em>245</em> about those who have back problems. I know what that is like. I don't have it any longer as years ago God healed me completely. That was back when they didn't have surgery for it. <BR> <BR> I wore a back support and took pain pills. One day I asked Jesus into my heart. I did not know how to pray but I always went and knelt at the altar after service. God said "If you ask Me I will heal you". I didn't know how to say a big eloquent prayer so said "OK God heal me". <BR> <BR> I ... Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:44:41 EST TO MONTY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677962 MONTY we celebrated Resurrection Day Sunday but you had a front seat. <BR> We miss you so much but none of us know the day or hour we will be in the heavenlies seated with you worshipping the Lord. <BR> Now you can talk. <BR> Now you can sing. <BR> Now you can walk. <BR> No more suffering. <BR> As you told me I am ready. <BR> Praise God for that. <BR> You are an inspiration to all of us to be ready. <BR> <BR> I used to say God bless you but now you can say that to me as you know so much m... Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:59:31 EST DON'T FEEL SAD FOR ME ANY LONGER http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5676588 <em>30</em> I thought I might sit alone at church but one of my spiritual families asked me to sit with them. I am the nana of the two little boys, one 4 years old and one about 2 months old, maybe less. <BR> If you are on face book you will see a picture of me with the children. <BR> Then another spiritual family invited me out to brunch and we had a wonderful waiter. So I wasn't alone today after all. <em>345</em> <BR> <BR> Then came home to spark with my spark family and took a n... Sun, 20 Apr 2014 20:41:50 EST A PLEASANT SURPRISE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5674607 Today the doorbell rang. I opened the door and there stood a lady who used to go to our church and actually her husband was co pastor for a time. She said, "Irene". I said yes, she was looking for a seamstress and had come to my door thinking that was the address. She was as surprised as I was as she didn't know where I lived. <BR> I said no and in the condominiums that number did not exist but maybe across the street. She and her beautiful grand daughter came in. They prayed for me. <BR... Thu, 17 Apr 2014 20:29:16 EST MY LATEST http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5672278 <em>244</em> I am feeling better. <BR> Today I went to Sprouts to buy fresh produce. <em>243</em> <BR> When I left home it was <em>259</em> <BR> When I left the store the wind was blowing and the temperature had fallen about 20 degrees. <BR> Cold wave for us coming in. <BR> Well, as most of you know I was <em>527</em> Saturday, Saturday night, and still felt weak Sunday A.M. <BR> All I wanted to do was <em>102</em> <BR> Didn't want to <em>4</em> <BR> I slept all day ...

Next payment is June the 15th. <BR> <BR> Now on to the next... Tue, 8 Apr 2014 11:45:21 EST
