I'm sorry that I have been MIA. My computer died and just now was able to get another going. My younger daughter has been battling an extremely dangerous infection in her ears. 2 good friends have passed away and another battling breast cancer. Not been a good time.

Oh - I forgot:

I will still be on Sparkpeople, so you can reach me very easily, either on my page or by Sparkmail.
But I will be away Sept 21-Oct 12 with practically no access to the Internet (annual trip to Lake Superior).

Good night everyone!

I will wrap up everything tomorrow (it is too late tonight) and let Sparkpeople close the team.

I enjoyed sharing with you our walks with the Lord.
God bless you and always keep you in His loving care!

I guess this is it; isn't it girls!

It's been nice meeting each and every one of you! I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future!

GOD BLESS YOU, each and every one!

Sarah, company sure can wear one out. Being tired can cause the pain levels to accelerate too. I am discovering I must learn to take it easy more often. I get to feeling good and want to do everything I couldn't do when I felt bad and then I overdo. Indeed bummers.

Love you all and will miss you while I am on Spark break. But I will be dancing with the Lord. Learning new steps is not always easy. In fact 'break dancing' will be very difficult for me. But I will take one step at a time and practice that until I learn it well and can move on to the next. LOL

Since today is my last day on Spark People other than an occasional blog to let you know I am still alive and kicking, I just want you to know you each have been a blessing in my journey to better health and I love and appreciate you. If any of you would like my e-mail address just message me today and I will give it to you.

Well my company is gone and I am exhausted. Chris (my son) is still here but planning to leave tomorrow. I will rest tomorrow..today I will do laundry..lots to do since it has built up with me having company.I need to vacuum and clean house too but that will probably have to wait till tomorrow when I am supposed to rest...ha. Being alone again will take time and be hard but I will adjust. It was nice to have a house full.

Charlene-I know what you mean about best made plans....they never seem to work out.

My mom wants me to take her out on Tuesday we shall see. I really need to get a pedicure and that is where she wants to go. My niece is going to join us so that will be fun.

My pain level is up today. It is day 3 for my pain patch and it usually wears off that day...but I was hoping I could get by without putting a new one on. Bummer.

Hello team! Hope you have a blessed day!!!

The best laid plans of mice and men! LOL I had such great intentions of pulling weeds today. I don't know what got into me. I must have been having sympathy pains for you Veronique and you Janet. I have been so tired all day as well as my back aching. I don't suppose it was ole scratch trying to get to us? It seems when we think we are doing so well another test comes along. But I won't let this test get me down. I will just go to bed early and get more rest. I didn't take a nap this afternoon and that may be one reason I am feeling so tired tonight. I sat here watching a neat video and closed my eyes and he next thing I knew it was over. LOL Oh well, such is life; win some lose some. Like my darling mother used to say, "tomorrow will be a better day". Good night all.

I guess you could say I have been 'burying my head in the sand'! I don't know what has gotten into me lately.

It's a lonely place [even with God at my side] when doctors tell you that nothing can be done for your Chronic Fatique! You just feel so lost!

I know this team is ending tomorrow. I wanted you to know I had not jumped ship. I just don't have anything to add to the team!

I want to wish everyone happiness and a productive life.

Hugs,
Janet

Hello all!

I am very late checking in today, but Faithful Charlene stopped by... Thank you Charlene!
I so appreciate your support.

I am rather discouraged because it looks like everybody jumped ship...

Tomorrow will be our last day.

I have been in a great deal of pain lately, and I welcome the break.

I sure don't tell these things because I am boasting in my strength but in the strength of the Lord that has gotten me to the point I am now. How blessed I am!!! How great is our God.

Today is a beautiful day and I will pull some more weeds, both outdoors and within myself. Those weeds of negativity only overrun the positive and will choke out the good if not removed early on. Yes negative thoughts can appear true, but why water and feed them because what we sow we reap. It is called the Law of the Harvest and is scripturally sound. Let us be diligent in practicing the presence of God which is to dwell on good thoughts.

Just as an accomplished piano player has practiced for hours on end, so the talent of being positive must be practiced daily and for hours on end. The natural man gravitates toward the negative and new man in Christ gravitates toward the positive.

Two more days tlll I take a Spark break in order to work on the Lord's agenda for me with my family at this time. I will sure miss you all but will come back if and when the Good Lord desires it.

Charlene, I am so happy you are doing great! And I admire your self-control.

Much better commute today, thank you.

Good Afternoon my friends. Yes indeed those power naps are wonderful and I am going to take another one in a few minutes. :D

Day is going great. The Lord is blessing me with strength to endure the nearly constant opposition to peace in this house with negativity spouted from both sides of the house alternately. I just smile and let it go in one ear and out the other, knowing that God is in control and when he sees that I have passed the test and not let it ruffle my feathers enough times and just return good for evil, perhaps it will stop. I definitely know it won't last forever because I won't live forever in this world. I think how fast the last almost 74 years have gone and all I have been through and heck another 10 or 15 years I can do standing on my head, (that is with the good Lord's help) LOL.

Love you all and praying for your well being. How did your commute go today Veronique. I pray it was better than yesterday.

Good morning everyone!

Charlene - now I understand why you stay up so late! These "power naps" are great, because they renew your energy. Unfotunately, I am totally unable to take naps during the day... Do you have a lot of rose bushes? How did they do in your dry weather? I bet they like the rain you are having now...

Have a great day, you all! I will be back in touch later.

I planned to weed around my rose bushes and spent an hour this morning getting part of that done. It is really a big job but the Lord is strengthening me.

Then I came in and scrubbed the drip pans on my electric cook stove top. That is always a big chore that I swear every time I do it I will wash those pans after each time I cook.

By then it was time to fix lunch which I did and took a nap. Yay! That is why I can stay up till 10:30 and on here so late.

Sweet dreams all.

Good morning everyone!

Charlene - I am so glad you had a good day at the Temple! You are right: SP can take a lot of your time if you do not watch it carefully...

Wishing everyone a good day and praying for our team.

Late again tonight! But just wanted to let you all know I love you. As I get myself acclimated to the idea that I am not going to be on SP starting the 1st of Sept. I am trying to wean myself a little at a time and I will not be on it that much till I stop. SP can sure become an addiction just like sugar.

I attended the Temple this morning. The love I feel there from those who are the workers and the love I feel from my Heavenly Father for helping Him with His work of salvation for the dead brings me such joy and peace. I got a nap in this afternoon and read to my Granddaughter. All and all I had a great day.

Janet I am taking vitamin D3 5000 units a day. I have seen a big difference in my energy level.

Praying for you all.

Hello everyone!

I am checking late because I had a busy day. I went to the Grief Support Group this morning.

Janet - I am glad you liked the link on Vitamin D. I thought it was interesting.
Congratulations on your weight loss! It is fantastic!

Blessings to all!

I have been off here, due to some immediate attention. That being taken care of, here I am!

Thanks for the link on Vit. D. I just read it this morning! I never realized that Vit. D was so important! The dr. recommended Calcium w/ Vit D.. The GP said the Neur. might advise more!

I went to WW last eve.. I have lost a total of 19 # ! Thirty one to go! I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT!

Today is another busy day! Check in later! HUGS !

Charlene, I am so sorry! But you are right: God has other plans and even if it does not make sense to us, we know that it is for our own good...
This electrical problem is scary! I am glad the landlord was able to make the repairs.

You can be sure when you think things are all going good, another test comes to see if you will trust the Lord and continue in faith.

My son-in law couldn't handle the schooling situation because of his social anxiety disorder and stayed only one night in Salt Lake City In a room provided for him with another person. So my husband has gone back up to Provo to pick him up and bring him home. He is catching a train to Provo. A big disappointment . But there were enough people praying for him that he would be able to handle it so since he cannot I have to believe it wasn't the Lord's will that he do it. Back to square one now with having to still provide for my DD and DSL and two children. Life with it's twists and turns can be so frustrating, but I refuse to let this get me down.

At least my husband was able to go get him in spite of his back pain which is worse today from having had to take him to Provo yesterday. My landlord finally came over and fixed the ceiling fan and light in my living room which had a short in it 5 days ago and nearly caught fired. Thank goodness we were here when it happened and shut off the switch right away.

Amen Charlene!

I also had a very good day at church, with uplifting and spirit-filled talks.

I was also able to spend a lot of time reading Scripture today. This feels so good.

I will close for today and spend some time with my son.

I hope everybody had a great day. Praying for you all!

Had a spirit filled day at church. How blessed we are to know that Jesus is the Christ and that he came to earth and showed us the right way to live and then died for our sins making it possible for us to repent when we fail to live like He showed us, be forgiven and go back to live with Him and Heavenly Father through all eternity. Oh how I love my Savior.

Happy Sunday everyone!

May your Sabbath day be holy and prayerful!

I will be praying for our team when I go to church later today.

I hope you are all doing well, and I wish you a great day.

Ah, I do love your posts Charlene! always so upbeat, so positive, this is wonderful! I feel good every time I read them, thank you!

It was indeed a beautiful day and I thank my God for giving it to me! He will now give me a good night's sleept because He watches over us and knows our imperfect bodies need rest.

Good night everyone! I am looking forward to the Sabbath. You will all be in my prayers when I go to church.

Good Morning, Good Morning! What a beautiful day it is! Every day we wake up alive is a beautiful day. Rejoice! God has given us 24 more hours to apply our hearts to wisdom and get closer to Him. Prov. 4:7, "Wisdom is the principle thing therefore get wisdom; and with all thy getting get understanding."

I am so thankful to say that God is helping me get the wisdom I need in order to eliminate the negative and accentuate the positive. As I suffer the consequences of my wrong thinking, speaking and doing, I have no desire to return to any of it and I am trusting God to carry me over the threshold of success. He is my spiritual husband. What else can I expect.

Isaiah 54:5, " For thy Maker is thine husband; the of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called."

Good morning all!

Janet - about 80% of people in the US have a Vitamin D deficiency... It is only recently that doctors have become aware of the importance of this vitamin and measure it. You can use supplements, but also increase your sun exposure and modify you food intake to include products rich in Vitamin D like fatty fish and eggs.
Check this: ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminD-H

I am glad you got a chance to really rest.

Charlene - I hope the rain continues!

Busy day ahead for us, I need to get on my way!

Good Saturday Morning---

I just needed to 'regroup'.

My bloodwork showed really low Vit. D. The readings are to be 30-100. Mine was 15.5! I need to starting taking Calciun+D. My morning BP without the water pill combo.
My bone density test results weren't ready yet!

I asked the GP what more I could do for my CFS. He stated he didn't have the answer. I still have my balance to deal with. So, that is really enough. Those two effect your quality of life!

Oh well!

Yesterday; I spent the day at home. I had 'running' to do all week. I needed a day of 'down' time! I did absolutely nothing yesterday. Not a thing.

Barb's services were really nice. Three of our 4 ministers were there. This week-end we vote on a new Worship Arts Minister. That service was at the Church. Then, there was a short graveside service. Then, the family and those that felt closet to her went back to the Church for a luncheon.

I remember, back when I was very young, a Church in town had a luncheon. That was so strange to me! Over the years I came to understand, that was meandt to be a Celebration of their life!

Also, around here, over that time; you only put a wreath on your door when someone close in your family passed away. My, how times have changed!

Let's go on the more uplifting things.

Lexie is her silly self. Sometimes I can't figure her out! She sure tries to
boss me around! Like, she will want to go out front and sit in the swing! BUT; if she 'thinks' nothing exciting is going on, she will whine and want to come in! She is very demanding! And, she usual gets her way!

Hope you all have a 'super' day!........................

Charlene - thank you for your GREAT news!!! I am so happy for you that it is finally raining! And also that you are getting some rest. This is wonderful, and your son is taking very good care of you, in my opinion!

Time for me to go to bed. Rainy day here too.

Wishing you all a good night!

Good afternoon. WOO HOO! We got a good rain last night and it soaked he ground and it has been sprinkling off and on all day so far. It is predicted that it will rain tomorrow too. I hope so.

I am just taking it easy today. No weed pulling, as my paranoid son, bless his heart, does not want me outside when there is a chance of lightening striking. Oh well such is life.

Veronique, I hope the storm didn't knock your power out.

Janet I know it has been an emotional and busy day for you like Veronique said. Praying for your peace.

My BP is up today and having to take meds. No rhyme nor reason.

Yes, we just got home from the proceedings.It was 2 hrs.. Then the trip to the cementary. She is buried at the same as my Dad and Mother! After a service there; then back to the Church for a luncheon. We rarely go to the meal; but, with me ministering with her and hubby ministering to him, we felt we should.

When we got home, took care of "Diva Lexie". I took allergy meds. now sitting down. I wanted to go to K-Mart; but, just couldn't do it. Tomorrow is another day! I need a couple more pair of every-day pants. They have Chic's on sale for 9.99.

It was a very nice service! Barb would have been well-pleased! Her loved ones payed a fitting tribute to her! She was a 'jewel'!

I have an out of this world headache. I took allergy meds.. I think I will close my eyes for a bit.

Talk with you all later!....................

You know, I don't recall using square brackets or angles, But, maybe I did!!!

Anyway, the it basically was about Barb's viewing and today's funeral. And, religious like God Bless, etc..

Come to think of it; I just posted on another team using the square brackets and angles, and it went through. That was the first time I had had any problems on posting. I have had occasionally had on Spark Mail.

My head isn't too clear this morning, anyway! Too much going on for this pea brain!

In the back of my mind, I go over the upcoming results of the testing. But, whatever it will be; God will Provide!

God Bless one and all!

Janet, please elaborate: I have NO idea what you are talking about!
Do you mean you typed certains signs (like square brackets or angles) and the message was rejected? Spark lets you post only plain text. This has nothing to do with the content!
But maybe I did not understand what you meant.

Good morning all!
I wish you a beautiful day.

Sorry I check in so late as to miss you all but just know I am thinking of you all day and intend to get on here to let you know I am doing ok. Just super busy with responsibilities.

Aug 31 will be my last day, dear ones, on SP. I will write another blog or two before I get off but just know that I do love each of you and my decision is a very difficult one. But when the Lord lets one know it is time to move to different avenues of endeavor then it is a good idea to follow His will. When one is so pressed for time that it causes stress and extremely strong temptation to turn to junk food for relief, it is time to set some priorities, evaluate what one can reasonably accomplish, judging oneself not on what others are able to accomplish but on what you yourself are able to accomplish, and take action according to what is reasonable.

Rom.12:1, "1 beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."

Janet - you are right, I need to consider my son's needs. The driving back and forth takes a lot of time and energy , and I know the traffic will get much worse after Labor Day, when school starts again. Being a single Mom now, I have no help whatsoever, he depends on me completely. I am also very busy with church activities.

I am not planning to leave SP entirely, because it is a good way to hold myself accountable and I am using the trackers. Besides, I have many friends there, and we support each other. I still to work on my weight and exercise.

However, I will take a 3 week break at the end of September., because I am going on business and on vacation to Lake Superior, like I do every year.

Veronique---I can fully understand! That was the problem I faced. But, sorry to see you go! Are you leaving SP entirely? I feel I was just getting to know you!

And, with you having your son to consider also! I remember, years ago, when our son first started with working outside the Workshop I had to transport him! So, I can well understand. Thankfully in my case it wasn't as far away as you have!

We all have obligations outside of here---I know only too well! We each have our ministries, and the Lord will richly reward you and the rest for doing their best for their fellow man!

Depending on what I find out with my test results; if it's something that I can deal with and still be able to do the Lord's will; in addition to encouraging cancer patients; I will also be teachers aide with children at our Wednesday nite Youth Program! So, I covet all your prayers. That is something that was always in the back of my mind. But, when I sang in the choir, which was the same time; it was impossible. Since my singing voice 'gave out', it opened another door. And, I feel led by Barb's life. Now, it's all up to God!

Believe me; from someone who knows; you will never regret the time and expense you invest in your son. Take it from someone who has been there! Now, he lives on his own, under the guidelines of the disabilities board. We felt at 40 yrs. [now he is 49] and our ages, he needed some other structure for after we are gone.

God Bless You............................

Sarah thank you for the suggestions. I did well today not turning to sweets for solace. I ate a natural foods diet. My treat was a fourth a cup of Grapenuts, two dates and 2 TBS. walnuts and a half cup of soy milk. That satisfies my cravings.

Janet I love church suppers too. And yes there are always such yummy foods made with love.
Naps are the best when one is feeling exhausted.

Veronique, I certainly understand about your need to step down. As a matter of fact due to my many responsibilities, and the time crunch involved, I am going to leave SP labor day weekend also. Too many priorities I must consider above SP. I love you all and pray for your well being.

This is the announcement I just posted:

I will be stepping down as a leader and leave the team on Labor Day. I just have too many things to do to be able to devote enough time to lead the team and keep it going. Please feel free to step up to the plate. If there is nobody interested,it will just close or stay dormant. All of you belong to other teams that are fairly active, so I do not think this will be a big problem. emoticon

Charlene...maybe you could give yourself predetermined healthy treats....something that is yummy but allowed. Sugar free pudding, grapes, frozen fruit bar. I am focused on eating only heathy foods....and doing well. But I still have huge issues with drinks. I love coffee...was drinking a lot of coke and LOVE sweet tea. So I am limiting to one coke a day and now go a few without one. I drinks sweet tea made from green tea bags and am using less sugar...and my coffee I make with sugar free creamer and truvia sweetener. I am not limiting the amounts I eat yet..just working hard to change up my diet...then I will focus on cutting down more.

Today so far I am feeling ok. It is another grey UGLY day here. All summer this has been going on and I am about to go nuts.
Janet-it sounds like a busy week for you.

My eldest son is coming with wife and grandson this evening so I will have all of my family here since youngest son is already here. Looking forward to family time. It is rare these days.

We had a beautiful Sunday! Wonderful service; with the Associate Minister. the senior pastor was out-of-town for a family gathering. As with Church get-togethers there was plentiful and outstanding food. Hubby always says there is nothing better than Church Ladies food. I tell him its because the food is made with LOVE!

There was only a couple of pieces of pie left. No, its no family secret. I couldn't find Mothers recipe. I went on Spark Peoples' member recipes and found one as I remembered Mothers. It's from amydster. Just go to the site and type in the name. Then scroll down to where it says member recipes. Then find this name and there you are! If you can't find it just let me know; and, I will print it here. It's easier to print out the other way. Print 'GREEN TOMATO PIE"

When I got home from Church yesterday morning, I fed Lexie and did dishes. Got everything packed for the picnic. When we got home from the picnic; I absolutely collapsed! Too much in one day. I slept for most of the rest of the day. With the attitude, 'Just leave me alone'. Then, I slept all night!

I have those times when I have trouble breathing; wheezing; and chest pain. I do have stress-induced asthma. My maternal grandmother passed away from an asthma attack in the mid-50's. At one point I used an inhalier. GP was going to have me checked for full-blown asthma, but, so far he hasn't.

This week will be an extremely busy week. The viewing; funeral; my bone density test; and the consulation with the dr. over the lab work!

Have a good one........................

Checking in late too. My BP is up today. Indiscriminate eating yesterday as well as stress with finances. I repent however of worrying and not trusting God to take care of us because we are doing the best we can. I allowed myself to fall back into the trap of trying to forget my stress with sweets. I know the Lord forgives me and I must forgive my human tendency and just resolve to do better which I did do today. Suffering the consequences of my fall, always gets me back on the correct path, humbling myself before the Lord, asking for forgiveness and resolving never to get off the straight and narrow again. There are fewer and further between episodes of turning to sugar for solace. One of these days it will be that I can say I have conquered for good, with the Lord's help, the natural tendency of man to turn to the things of this world for solace.

Love you all and praying you be blessed each according to the will of God.

Checking in late today, it was a busy day. Sorry about that.

Janet - yes, please can you give us your recipe or is it a family secret?
Sarah - I hope you can get a good rest tonight and feel refreshed tomorrow. This is good that Chris can help you. To have all you kids is such a treat! I am sure your parents will enjoy the visit as well. You may want to check with the doctor about the shortness of breath. My sister did not complained about that after her treatment. She was very tired, though.

Yucky day here, with rain and heavy clouds.

I will be going to bed soon.
I wish you all a peaceful and restful night.

Another tough day. The pain is controlled but the fatigue has taken over. I took my dad grocery shopping and almost passed out in the store. Anyway, my son Chris is here and he has helped me clean house today since my eldest son, his wife and my 1 1/2 year old grandson Bentley are coming tomorrow evening. I will have a full house with all my children. I pray I feel better tomorrow so I can enjoy them all..it so rarely happens that I get my kids all together.
I hate feeling like this. I will desire to do something and get up and start and have to stop because I am short of breath and exhausted. The shortness of breath is new. I pray that the treatment works and I can feel better. Life like this is terrible.
All of us will go visit my parents-they are getting so old and my dad is not doing so well lately. It breaks my heart to see them become so feeble.

Janet-how did your pie turn out? I have never had that. I wish it was sunny and pretty here..but no it is cloudy and ugly. AGAIN!

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying a beautiful Sabbath.

Home from Church; getting things together for the Church picnic later today. Hubby is taking a big bowl of cantaloupe. I made a Green Tomato Pie yesterday. I must say, it's the first pie I have made in years. Generally I make cobblers. It looks impressive on the outside, I will have to admit. Now, to pass the taste test! After all these years I wasn't sure how it would even look!

Lexie got fed and let out as soon as I got home. Now she is satisfied. I told her she should be a service dog, so she could go places with me. She would love that, it's just the getting there she doesn't like.

It is a beautiful sunny day here! Perfect for a picnic.

I am to have a bone density test later in the week; and, get the results of my lab tests. All in all, this past week they took 11 vials of blood!

There is an opening for two teachers helpers with the little ones on Wed. night at the Church. I have already talked with the Childrens' director. Told her I would wait until I got the results and what to do. And, she said to just let her know.

My problem is with cancer patients I become too emotionally involved. Every thing I lose one, I say never again! But, I know I will keep going on.

Right now, I have to find out about my own health. If its not good, I won't be anygood for anyone else!

Too Later......................

Sarah - I am so sorry you are feeling poorly! As Charlene says, I hope your family will be able to help you when they are here. Please try not to do too much, just what is essential and do not be afraid to ask for help...
Janet - I hope you had a good day.
Charlene - I am sure you are looking forward to go to church tomorrow. It is so great that you are feeling better and stronger!

Good lunch with my oldest son today. He is so excited to be a new father soon (baby is due in January) and it is very touching to hear him talk about it!

Going to bed soon. You are all in my prayers!

Sara darling so sorry it's a sofa day. I know all about those. You want so bad to get up and do something even if it is wrong. :) Isn't it wonderful that your family is coming and can help you. I had to learn to let my family wait on me, which was very difficult. Mother's are so used to giving, it is a hard lesson to learn to take as well, but it blesses the lives of our children to learn to give to their mother.

Janet dear, it is good that it is your desire is to help with the youth and fill in where Barb cannot be now. That would be an awesome tribute to her as a person to want to help out there. Will be looking forward to your news about that as well as the results of your blood tests.

Veronique all I can say to you is, your a wonder. LOL

Good morning to all!

Charlene - I am so happy to see you are feeling well enough to do all these things! But please be careful not to overdo it...
Janet - Barb was a remarkable woman indeed! This would be so good if you could continue her work with the youth.

I do hope Sarah is feeling better.

Have a good day everyone! You are in my prayers.

Thanks everyone. She is no longer suffering, and, is with our Lord Jesus Christ. She is and was a great woman of faith! She did a great ministry with the children of the Church. In fact, they have posed a need for help in the Wed. evening kids program.

I've had a series of blood work done this week. [11 vials in all]. Hopefully, I will find out the results on next Thur. when I have a consulation with my GP. If all goes well, hopefully I will help in the area she so loved.

No arrangements known yet.

Tomorrow is our Church Picnic. Today I am fixing a Green Tomato Pie. My Mother would make this every late summer to use up the green tomatoes. We always would have Fried Green Tomatoes. Then, every spring, when the cherries came on her famous Cherry Pot Pie. I have the recipes.

I trust you all have a good one!..................

Janet, my most heartfelt condolences to you in the loss of your sweet friend. We can thank the good Lord she is no longer suffering.

I had a good day today. I worked on my genealogy, pulled weeds around the edge of the house, praying for rain and the good Lord saw to it that the irrigation water was turned back on, watered the lawn tonight the best I could, my neighbor even turned her sprinklers on so that it watered not only her lawn but a section of our dried out back yard too. This morning I made a green salad and zucchini bread. My back aches tonight from pulling weeds, but boy is it a good feeling to ache from doing something I love to do and that is work in the yard. I attribute that success to the Lord too. I am so blessed.

Love you all.

No much activity yesterday - I hope you are all OK. We haven't seen Nancy in a while and I checked her page: she lost one of her best friends a few days ago. Please stop by to express your support, I am sure she will appreciate it.

God early morning here. 6:34 AM Just checking in and wanting you all to know I am thinking of you.. I have a lot to do today and it might be this evening before I check back but you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Veronique have a great day. Yes you can send some of your rain this way. Let your prayers continue to rain down on all of us. You have mighty faith.

Janet, I am thanking the good Lord for answered prayers where you are concerned. Especially that you have a doctor that you like and can trust.

Sarah, I am so happy that there is "hope smiling brightly before you and we know that deliverance is nigh. We doubt not the Lord nor His goodness, we have proved him in days that are past."

Good morning dear ones!

It is great to hear from you (I worry when I don't).

Charlene - you are doing so well. This is amazing. I thank the Lord for this.
Janet - it looks like you may finally get some answers! So glad you like your new rheumatologist!
Sarah wrote her blog yesterday (please take a look at it) and she is starting to feel better. Praise the Lord!

All these are good news and answers to prayers. We have an awesome God!

Have a great day, everybody!

Sorry, that I too were absent yesterday! The day just got away from me!

I got a call from the Rheumatolist ofc. changing my appt. up an hour! I was in there about an hour, beginning as a new patient! She is a young 42-yr. old doctor. One of those drs. that is 'funny' but yet down-to-earth. I really like her. She couldn't understand why my GP took me off my Fibro. med when it was doing me good. So, she put me back on. And, she has a referral in for a bone density test. I have needed it for some time, but, the last two GP's wouldn't do it, why I don't now. And, she gave me literature on several possible problems I may have.

I go in to the GP's ofc. this a.m. for follow-up blood work. One for the sodium content and the other for kidney output. They were a little off last time. And, she has ordered a bunch of additional blood work she wants done at the same time.

I am to have lunch with a friend; so, it sounds like I will be busy again, today!

Will try not to be 'tarty' again!

Good day to all!

Sorry Veronique, I didn't get on here today sooner. I will do better tomorrow. I had a great day today. I am feeling so much better with every trip I make to the Temple to serve the Lord. there. But when I come home I am behind on other things that need doing and need to get done.

Love you Veronique, Don't feel bad. I want to be on here just circumstances being what they are, I have to make choices that are hard sometimes.

Praying for our team.
Love you all

Sorry I am so late getting here, I have had a very busy day. It rained hard today. I know it was because I did what I was supposed to do and watered the lawn the best I could with the time I was allowed. Just like on Friday when I watered the lawn it rained. Self fulfilling prophecy I guess.

Good night all. I will come back and read all your posts tomorrow. Gotta get in bed.

Janet - Barb and her husband will be in my prayers. I hope she is not in pain.

Good night all, I hope you had a great day. My son started his new job today and loved it! They made him cut veggies (lettuce, peppers and onions). He was beaming when I picked him up. I am so thankful to the Lord!
Also, the commute back and forth (2.5 to 2.75 hours) appears to be manageable.
We need to go to bed earlier, so I will be closing soon.

Have a peaceful night! May God bless you all.

I talked with my Church friend Barb's hubby a bit ago. He said she is "bad". She is sleeping virtually around the clock! And, having difficulty getting her meds down her! He added it wouldn't be long! It's to the point where the Hospice nurse has told him he can call her 24/7 if he feels she is needed! That's usually a sign.

Please add her in your prayers, so she might not suffer; but, pass peacefully!

Thank You,
Janet

Good morning everyone!

Today is a joyful day for us, as my son is starting his new job. I am so thankful to the Lord to have provided it! We got up filled with good energy. I have no idea what the commute will be (thank you Charlene for thinking of us!), so we will leave super early, with plenty of time to spare.

Charlene - yes, it was a really good prayer, I am so glad you liked it too.
All - feel free to share prayers and thoughts you like and think will enrich us!

Have a beautiful day everyone! I am thinking of you.

Welcome CONQUERINGDAILY.

Veronique, I got the same e-mail and was going to post the prayer because I thought it was so good, but didn't get around to it. So I am very glad that you did. I really liked it and I think great minds run in the same direction huh so thank you.

Hope your day goes well tomorrow with your commute to Philippe's work.

Praying for all on our team.

Got this in mailbox and wanted to share:

Prayer for Blessing

Father, I thank You for being the God of every blessing, the fount of every joy, and the source of everything good. I know it is in Your heart to bless the lives of Your children, and as Your child, I desire Your blessing upon my life. Thank You that Your blessings enrich my life, leave me without sorrow, bring me the treasures of Your grace, and express all the kindness of Your favor.

Thank You, Father, that Your blessings abound to me in Christ, they are mine freely because of the great price He paid. I thank You that because I am in Him, You have showered upon me every blessing that heaven could possibly give.

I receive Your blessings for this day as I walk with You—I ask for Your hand to cover me, Your power to keep me, Your face to shine upon me, Your love to fill me, Your strength to sustain me, and Your sufficiency to be my portion in every need I face. I ask You to bless the work of my hands as I serve You in your appointed place.

Father, I desire above all, the greatest blessing of all, the blessing of Your daily presence. My relationship with You means everything! I cannot live in the poverty of not knowing You. I want to know and love You more—to walk with You, break bread with You, speak my heart to You, and respond to You as I hear Your voice, see Your smile, and sense Your pleasure.

Father, bless me and make me a blessing.

Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone!

I am sad we lost Karen as a member, but I fully understand her dilemma. It comes a time when you need to make hard choices.

I wish you a prayerful and wonderful Sabbath and will be carrying you in my prayers as I attend church later today.

Hi Team Members,

I want to thank you for my time on your team. I'm closing out of teams tonight because I'm not able to keep up right now. It's all I can do to just log in and do food log sometimes so I've decided to give myself a break from reading and entering on any team. I wish you all the best and know God is great. I'm so glad he's walking with all of us on our journeys. So glad to see the support you are all able to give each other -what a blessing! Signing out of teams now so this is my last post for a long time, I'm sure. Thanks again.

Hello everyone!

Sarah - I am glad you are alkive and finding enough energy to give us some news! Thank you! You are in my prayers.
Janet - good idea to get involved with your church, I am sure you have many talents and you will do a lot of good!

I went to a funeral this morning, and it was beautiful: such a celebration of life! The lady who died (a car accident) had all her family there and they all particpated: talks, songs, musical numbers. Really wonderful and such a privilege to attend.
