Welcome home, Wyllo! Great to have you back. I am so proud of you for eating well in the midst of such stress and grief. You GO, girl. *applause* It is not easy to eat well on the road. You did GREAT.

I'm so glad the funeral was beautiful. I really and truly believe they are meant to celebrations of life. One of my cloestet friends had a sister who died. She was a woman of strong faith. She left strict instructions that there was to be no black, brown, or navy blue worn to her funeral. She insisted on festive clothing, Hawiian shirts, bright colors. She made her family promise that her funeral would be a celebration of her graduation on to glory. I just love that!

WYLLO1 ~ how is her family? Can you tell us about your sis-in-law, what was she like?

I does feel good when we are forced to be off our daily routine and we still succeed. Three cheers for you!

Well, I'm back. My sister-in-law's funeral was yesterday and it was very beautiful. There was a luncheon afterwards, so I tried to be careful about what I chose to eat, and absoultely refused to hang-out near the food tables.

After three days on the road and eating all of our meals out, I was surprised when I got on the scale this morning and found that I have actually lost weight this week. I was so happy!

I want to thank everyone again for your prayers for me, my husband and his family. It means so very much to me that you have all been so supportive through this difficult time.

Hi everyone ~ I posted a picture of Becca from Africa, maybe you can check it out when you have the time. I appreciate your prayers for her. I also posted a picture of my "grand-dogs", they are so precious!

I had a hamster name "Twinkletoes" when I was about 5. My friend and I were playing with it in the basement and for got to latch it's cage. Later in the day, Tinkletoes was gone. We found her many days later, she had gotten lodged in between boxes and couldn't get out. I still feel badly about that.

Missy ~ I would have gagged too! Yuck! I love watching the health channel but I don't like seeing that kind of thing in person. So glad you are healing.

Paraeast ~ any word from Jean?

Dian ~ such pretty girls!

If there is an icky smell in my house, it's usually a reminder that I haven't cleaned out the litter box that day. I love my cat but really dislike litter box duty!!!

Hi everyone,
Jan, glad to see you back, sorry you felt so awful for a while there...all we can do is look to the Lord in such times, He brings us through... emoticon

Sharron, that was so funny about your poor little bird! Hope your grandson appreciated it!
Sorry you got damage to your ears through possibly antibiotics...treatment for one thing can affect another part of our body! I've had what I call itching in the ears for years...drives me mad! I've tried olive oil etc, so many things and finally got referred to a specialist who wanted me to use antibiotic drops long term to clear it up. I didn't agree, I use anti inflammatory drops when necessary. It's most likely an allergy causing the problem but never found out to what...plus I don't seem to make any ear wax, so that's an issue too.
Next week we have a double celebration, our 15th wedding anniversary & Joseph's 65th birthday so have decided to book a hotel for a couple of nights in the city of Valencia...really looking forward to that!

Missy, how are the shoes feeling...good?
Boy what a lesson for us all about those treadmills. I don't have one, I have an elliptical but that's not electrical driven so think I'm fairly safe with that but I do put trainers on to use it.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Hello to all of you!
I've been away since Sunday and just read all your posts to get caught up! So much going on! Prayers and praises for all. The mouse and the hearing aid, (sounds like the title of a children's book!) The mouse reminded me of this (true) story. Once I had a very small parakeet, I came home from work one day and couldn't find it. I looked all over and finally decided it had gotten out of the house somehow. Fast forward 1.5 years. I finally managed to move a couch (VERY heavy) away from the wall to clean and low and behold, there's my little parakeet, his skeleton that is, one leg folded back. I figured my nephew was just the right age to appreciate a complete skeleton of a little bird. I placed the poor thing on a paper towel and lay it on top of the microwave to box up and send to him. The next day was Thanksgiving and the hot water heater went out. So the following day the repairman came. As he worked, we talked. He asked why I was living way out in the country by myself. I explained that my ex had left and that things were tight, couldn't leave if I wanted. As he was leaving, he set his toolbox on the floor by the microwave. As he straightened up, he shot me a very weird look. I just gave him a big smile back. It was only later that I realized that he had seen the tiny bird carcase on the micro. I laugh every time I think of that look he gave me! He must have figured that was the smallest Thanksgiving bird anyone had ever had!
I also wear hearing aids in both ears. When I was 5 I had an infection inside the valves of my heart, this necessitated antibiotics for several years, which is what they think caused the hearing loss. I didn't really realize I couldn't hear well because that's what I was used to. When I finally decided to get checked out (after everyone I know growing weary of my "what?", (only 2 years ago now) I found out just how deaf I was! At first it was scary, the world was just so noisy! I thought I lived in a very quiet country area. Not so! I've gotten used to it somewhat now but still take them out when I'm home alone. So Sadiedelores, be prepared for an adjustment period, it's not always easy but the benefits are great! Well folks, I've rattled on long enough. Thank you all so much. I've said it before, I'll say it again. I feel so blessed to be a part of such a dynamic community of prayer.
Blessings,
Sharron

Helen, I'm so glad you are back here. When you are under attack like that, please stay close to us. We are here for each other with divine purpose. I really believe that. I so look forward to exercising once the doctor releases me. That'll be a whole new way of life for my lazy butt!

Jan, I'm so sorry you went through that! I never dreamt on Feb. 28 that it would be four months before I'd begin to feel a bit normal again. It was a long road. I knew it was designed to stop me in my resolves and I just had to be more stubborn than the enemy about it. Truly, all things ARE possible through Christ who strengthens us.

I appreciate the compassion and encouragement of you dear sisters so very much!

Missy, Praise God that he is watching over you and taking care of you and your daughter. Blessings that you are now able to wear both shoes. I haven't been on for a couple of days and just read what happened. Thank you for sharing that as I will now make sure I have my tennis shoes on. I have walked on mine in my sandals but never again. My prayers will continue for you.
Blessings and hugs,

Missy,

I've been away from here a few days, so I just learned of your accident. I know how much that hurt--I did much the same thing a couple of years ago. I got on a hotel treadmill, pushed the wrong button, and suddenly it was going 7.5 miles per hour. I ended up going to the hospital for stitches, but didn't have wound treatment, so I guess I was lucky. But the hotel was anything but nice about it. Anyway, I'm glad you've had little pain. It was 6 weeks before my doctor would let me exercise again. I let it derail me; I'm so glad you aren't letting your wound derail you.

I've been doing well today. A week or so ago I got into a fairly deep depression, and had to get through it. I'm better now. I'm really finding that exercise is crucial for me.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. - Eleanor Roosevelt

SO glad that you are getting treated and that you are watching what you eat. Please keep us informed as you know we are all praying for one another. I really enjoy that about this group. Then hearing the praises is great.
Speaking of answer to prayers, my daughter in CO with Crusade told me today 30 or more made decisions this week! PTL!! Keep praying. They get city kids from Denver, Dallas and some other city. Hard to hear on phone due to mountains. God knows! emoticon

Di, thank you so much. I am rejoicing!! In this workd we will have tribulation, but through our Lord we still overcome!

Sadie, so true, so true. Both Melanie and I learned we had more than we knew we had the night of the accident. Sometimes I think the enemy of our souls wants to hide our strengths under our fears so we will not realize just how strong we are in the Lord. I am wearing two shoes today. Glory to God!!

GodMyFullness, that is a lovely quote! Thank you so much for sharing it. In my Smith Wigglesworth daily devotional he made a comment that has stuck with me forever: I refuse to believe for small things when my God is so big!!

Janet, thank you for the affirmations! I cannot even begin to tell you how much this group of sisters means to me, how much I've come to consider each of you part of my everyday world. You each bless me over and over and over. I am so thankful for the gift of you!!!

Sadie, I banged my head back in 1979...so suppose because it's a long time ago I don't notice any difference. But hearing tests still show a deficit. I do know I can't hear certain tones & pitches of noise. We have an alarm clock upstairs and if we are downstairs Joseph can hear it bleeping...but not me. I once had high pitched alarm clock ringing right next to my ear...but it never woke me because I couldn't hear it...woke Joseph though!!LOL!!

I will be praying for both of you and loss of hearing and Sadie I guess with your sugar. I guess you have diabetes? I will pray for you and wisdom for the doctors and all.
We have very loud hand driers at the high school where I work. All of us over 50 think that they will cause hearing loss to each of us. The hand driers are new too. Advancement but I'm not sure it is. They are SO LOUD! You hear them even outside in the hall!!!
Praying for you and have a good day

Hi everyone,
I had puter problems yesterday so didn't get on SP very much...missed you all! emoticon

I've just read on my Friends Feeds that Missy is wearing BOTH SHOES!! I'm really happy for you Missy and glad to hear that the Lord is healing your foot nicely.

Dian, how is your strep throat today? Well done for losing 2lbs this week!!

Oh Sadie, I was wondering what exactly your problem was caused by...yes, you need to be very careful and look after yourself. I too have a 40% hearing loss in both ears due to an accident many years ago when I fell and banged the back of my head...resulted in nerve damage!
I'm sure the hearing aid will be a big help to you. Is it for one ear or do you need it for both?

Jackie, how are you? I know you've been suffering with a bad cold...

I guess it's not a good time of year to get coughs & colds!!

I am delighted to hear my mishap may save someone else from danger! I've been so blessed by God's mercy. Other than the wound care treatments, I have had very little pain. Wound care was pretty brutal for a while but it's totally manageable now. I have not even had a pain pill in two weeks. Hallelujah!! The night it happened only my 11 year old daughter was with me. God love her. She was crying and gagging and still trying to help me while I waited for help to arrive. My husband had returned to his ship just two days before, and he's out 28 days per hitch. It was difficult for both of us for him to be away from home at that time, of course, but God is our sufficiency, our abundance!! Thank you to all of you for your compassion and kindness. You are the BEST!

Missy, I am so sorry about your accident. Boy that must have been painful. OOOOOhhh. Hope you are feeling less pain now. Can you walk very far now? Probably not with such a painful foot that had to have amputation.
I went to Phys thrapy today, I don't like it, it lasts an hour, but it sure has shown a lot of improvement. I had a knee replacement 6 weeks ago. So anytime I feel sorry for myself, Iwill think of you.
HI Sadie, how are you doing. Hugs, Annie

Ouch Missy. There have been times I've thought of getting on it barefoot and wondered what would happen. I think I won't try it. I hope you are OK.

Thank you both for your kindness! I may not have mentioned it here. I get lost with the different forums. lol It's been a crazy road, for sure. It happened the day after I began to eat healthy and to exercise every day. Stupidly, I got on my treadmill barefoot. I hit the wrong button and it started going 10 mph. It threw me to the matt, elbows and knees, and my left foot curled into the side of the belt and the mechanism sliced through my toe bone, just below the lowest knuckle. NEVER, ever, ever go on a treadmill barefoot, in slippers, in flip-flops! Obey all the warnings. Isn't it something? If we take heed of the warnings, we stay safe! I'm so glad God has given us all the warnings we need for life!!

Sadie,
We've got ground squirrels up here. One of those might of found it's way in and got trapped. Smells worse than a mouse. Had plenty of those on the farm when I was a kid. Wasn't our farm, my folks rented the house and when my dad was laid off he'd work off the rent by helping on the farm.

Missy, you sure have been through it! You are right about our God. He is so-o-o faithful that it brings tears to my eyes. I'm glad you get to change to a smaller bandage. It will be helpful in this heat. We have 94 degrees here in Northern Michigan. Highly unusual for us! Love you Too, Peggy

I just love you ladies. You have become such an important and vital part of my everyday life. I thank God for each and every one of you. You bless me SO much as you share your lives with me. THANK you!!

Big milesone for me today. I've had my foot wrapped round and round with gauze since I severed my little toe in a treadmill accident Feb. 28. I've gone through wound care since they amputated it ten days after it happened. It was seven days a week until about four, six weeks ago. Now I go Mon, Wed, Fri. Today my wound care lady used a big band-aid instead of having wedges of foam and stacks of gauze wrapped in more guaze. It feels SO weird to walk and feel the boot and just to feel air on the middle of my foot. I'm going to try to put on my left shoe to wear to church tonight. That should be interesting! The wound is now about the size of a nickle (started out 4.7 cm square of raw meat). We are SO fearfully and wonderfully made. New skin has grown where there was NONE. God has truly given the increase. I cannot give Him enough praise.

More cause for praise, I've moved from the first phase to the second here on the SP program. I am still learning so much about what to do and how and when. My life has been changed in so many ways. God is still making all things new within me and He gets all the glory!!

Not at all, Sadie. I think something got in and died. I'm not just sure...as I have not found the source. I have a suspended ceiling and it might be up there. Anyway, I'm cleaning like crazy to rid the smell. It smells better already. Well, back to work....

Good job at that reception! Yeah! Answers to my prayers for you.

I ate to maintain yesterday instead of to lose. I may need to do that a bit while sorting and working on my house. It seems to help me. All in all I did well.

Hope you all have a blessed day.

Praying for all the needs here and people mentioned.

Phew! I was up early this morning, Joseph had a b/t & ECG appointment at the clinic, had to be there for 8.15!! I packed our breakfast in the cold box as his ECG wasn't until 10.45...took a nice walk in between and afterwards drove up to see the reservoir, there was a lovely breeze up there in the mountains.
Have a wonderful day everyone!

Paraeast ~ isn't is wonderful to have children who want to serve!!! We have many foster kids in our school system, they are from larger areas and are gang members. They talk about hate and violence in their papers, it's very sad. We have several Christian teachers who are trying to reach them in ways they are allowed. I will pray for Jean that she has many opportunities to love those kids and that their hearts will be open to the love of Christ.
Thank you for praying for my Becca!

I will be praying for your daughter. I have a daughter in CO working with Campus Crusade as a counselor this summer. So please pray for her. The campers they are getting are inner city kids that are in gangs and enjoy hip-hops. They also do NOT trust anyone and have a hard time knowing what love is as they have not experienced it in their families. So pray. God can open their hearts. Thank you. Her name is Jean.

I totally agree. I always encourage people to hold conversations with those in comas, to read the Word to them, to sing to them, to touch them, touch them, touch them. Even if their physical bodies cannot recieve it, their spirits can.

Thank you for the kind words! I read them to Billy and he pumped his fist up and said YES!!! LOL

Sadie, bless your heart. I'm sure you do miss your dear friend, 38 yrs is a very long time!
I certainly do believe that people can hear when they're in a coma. When Joseph had the cerebral haemorrhage, just before they took him to the theatre to operate, I told him I loved him and I'd be waiting for him to came back. I said "If you can hear me Joseph, squeeze my hand." Praise God, he did!!

Missy, Oh the Lord is so good. We wonder how anything good can come out of these awful situations but with the Lord, All things are possible, if we only believe. I'm so happy to hear about your lovely, blessed family. Thank you for sharing your wonderful testimony and please tell Billy, that I wish him a very special walk with the Lord and may he serve Him all the days of his life. emoticon

Billy is our miracle! He's my stepson (child not of my loins but child of my heart). His surgery was January 2008 and other than the ugly scars on his skin, you'd never know it. God has restored him to full health. God has such a touch upon this kid's life. His mother abandoned him, his sister, and my now husband the day before Mother's Day, seven years ago, by calling to say she was not on the way home from work but was, in fact, in Kentucky (and we're in southeast Louisiana), waiting for the man who is now her husband to pick her up, and that she was never coming home. Talk about some shattered lives to put together!

Through pulling together to help the kids through that difficult time and helping my two kids cope with the fact that their dad had moved to Florida and gotten engaged before our divorce was even signed, we had nowhere to turn but to the Lord. They needed more than we had to give and we all needed Him. He is SO faithful!

Little did we know He was using for good that which the enemy intended for destruction, and we ultimately became a blended family. My dear friend and neighbor became my husband, the king and priest of our home. God is SO good.

So the enemy has tried to break Billy's body as well as his heart and God keeps raising him up. He's now part of our church's worship team, singing and playing the bass guitar, and I just can't wait to see where God takes him to share the Good News, to further the Kingdom.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. That blesses me so much! Many, many blessings upon you, your family and your ministry.

Hi everyone,
I'm praying for all these sad and lonely hearts! emoticon

Connie...3lbs is excellent!! emoticon

Missy, I just took a look at your website and all about Billy...your nephew? My, that must have been so worrying for the family. Did that happen in Dec 2008? How is he doing now?

Hi Sadie, I'm sorry you still have problems with your urine. Praying all those appointments go well tomorrow.

I got the results of my bone density scan today...I'm still well in the 'normal' range so am happy with that...
That's why we need to keep moving...keeps our bones nice & strong! emoticon
