Jackie, My thoughts and prayers are with Esther, you and your mom and dad.
Dear Heavenly Father, Please hold Esther in your mighty care as she goes through the dialysis..that this is a temporary fix to a permanent cure and that her doctors find the cause of her infection. Please let them get her medication balanced quickly and that she will soon be well on the road to complete recovery. Also, Lord, be with Jackie's dad who is not well and her mom. Please guide her as she takes her medication successfully. Be with all of them. You know each of their needs to the minuscule detail. Be with Jackie as she worries about her loved ones...comfort her and set her mind at rest... reminding her that you are the great Healer and that you are with her sister's doctors, guiding them in the best treatment possible. These things I ask in the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen
Jackie, I will continue to pray.
Blessings and hugs, dear friend,
Helen

Ladies,
I've been really busy...

My sister (Esther) is in the hospital on dialysis. It’s a complete surprise to us all. She got a kidney infection after given the wrong medication for strep throat.
Please pray:
- That the dialysis is temporary (they think it should be once they find the cause of the infection)
- Her medication will be balanced quickly.
Please include my parents. Dad is not well and mom tries to keep up with her medication… sometimes without success.
Thanks, I’ll send more when I can.

Thanks so much for the tips. I do need those constant reminders of my goals that I am trying to acheive. I am going to try all of those things that you suggested. I copied your response and I will put it in a notebook so I won't forget!

Blessings and hugs to you too!

Do what I do...I write little notes to myself about a goal I want to reach and pictures and put them on the refrigerator door so I see it anytime I reach for the door handle. I also have a see through place mat on my side of the table with little notes to myself as well as a picture of me when I was thinner and healthier. It has really helped me. For example: I want to get down and play Barbies. Jump on trampoline with McKenzie. Be able to breathe easier when walking the stairs.
I will add you to my prayer list and keep you in prayer while you are working toward your goal.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

BTW: I use a legal size page protector which is open on one end and two sided tape or the tacky sticky stuff like the schools use on the back of my notes and pictures to hold them in place. It is cheap enough to change when I need to. Sometimes I put a piece of cut out construction paper or a lace paper doily inside to pretty it up first, depending on my mood.

I went over my son’s house and I saw my granddaughter who is 6 and she showed me her Barbie Doll and it looked like a beauty salon booth. She was on the floor and of course I was standing, because it is very hard for me to get on the floor because of my weight. I remembered how I use to love Barbie’s and all of the accessories that went along with Barbie. I know I have another reason to lose weight and that is to get on the floor and have a Barbie fashion show or stop in the salon and hop out of my Barbie convertible car. I guess every time I put that extra food in my mouth I should think……Hmmmm you will never get to ‘hang out with Barbie and her gang’. Yes I do want to get on the floor and play with Barbie and Friends. I am praying for God's help to achieve this goal!

Phillus--so sorry about the loss of your friend. How awful that she was hit by a car! Praying for the peace of God and His comfort for you and her family. Also praying for Eddie and his family.

I have been having connections problems again. I can connect to the internet but then after a few minutes things either slow way down or freeze. I don't know if it is my computer or my service provider. I will have to call the service provider tomorrow to see if I can find out.

This morning I woke up not feeling well, had diarrhea for a couple of hours. I took some Immodium which at least stopped the diarrhea. I had to work today so I am glad the Immodium worked. I felt exhausted by the time I came home so lay down for a while. I slept a couple of hours. I am hoping I am better by tomorrow morning because I have to pick up my Christmas food box early.

Thank you all for your prayers, his sustaining Grace is sufficient, But let me tell you it was a Glorious celebration of that faithful servants life. As Sadie said I had her for awhile and this year she will be with Jesus on his birthday. The Birthday of the King.
As for Eddie, he was successfully removed from the vent, but He is just not there. God's Will be done is my prayer for this wonderful man of God.
Again thanks I know every one's prayers made it manageable for me. Now God has allowed me to shut my eyes and see her face, before it was blocked out.
Thank you Lord for my old friends and My new ones.

Girls I am asking for prayer today, My dear friend 83 I pick up every Wednesday for prayer meeting and She is in my SS Class. On Wednesday when we arrived at the church I let her out on flat ground and back ed up next to the curb, she start a cross the street a man came over the hill struck and killed my dear friend, I know in she is home with Jesus but my heart breaks as I say so long and still see her on the street. But what a great testimony to be going to workship and being called home. that is not all my friend Eddie he was our education director I have known him over 30 years and his family. Today they are going to make the decision to remove his vent. God's will be. Please I am calling out for the prayer warriors today. Merry Christmas to you all.

Missy, I am actually in the southwestern corner of PA which is about 5 hours southwest of Allentown. I haven't been there in 25 years but it runs in my mind they are more over in the central part of the state. I did a mapquest for the distance to Allentown and it came up with 4 hours 58 minutes northeast of us or 285.55 miles. Wow.
Will also be praying for your family member. I know that we have such a large family that someone is always upset with someone. I tend to stay out of their arguing and just pray for them all. It helps me stay sane that way as I don't like confrontations.
Please pray for everyone involved in the accident, including the drunk driver who is sitting in jail charged with aggravated vehicular homicide as well as other pending charges. Although Carri was dead at the scene, two or three others with her are in bad condition at a Cleveland hospital, I think. Many lives have been changed forever because of drinking and driving. They all need our prayers.

I survived the family Christmas party. Sad that the only other Christians in our family chose to not attend because one of the non-believers hasn't apologized over something. Please pray for that family member, that the Holy Spirit will reveal truth in meaningful ways to bring about healing in these relationships. It was great to see my nieces and nephews and their children. I even got to play Connect Four with the youngest of the newest generation. THAT was fun!! lol

Helen---What a terrible tragedy to lose your neice. Her family is really feeling the loss I am sure. May God comfort all of them.

Shirley---Even if he does need his binky no one will really mind. Hope you can get pictures of it. What a precious keepsake to have.

Many of you are having really cold weather right now but here in Southern California it has been in the 70s for the last several days. Anyone want to come for a visit?

Shirley, I imagine babies through the centuries have had binkies of one sort or another. They didn't just occur in our lifetime! He will be so cute! Be sure to get pics for us if he does it.

Wow, Helen, that's a lotta snow, fast. Are you near Allentown or Hazleton? That's where most of Bill's family is. It was sweet of you to shovel snow for your neighbors. I can't imagine having to dig my way out like that. How tragic about your niece's family. Those poor, poor children. God help them to recover from such devastation.

So sad on the loss of the mother with 5 children. We've had snow storm after snow storm and I know things can get bad. Right now we are cold but the weather is sunny. I pray for all those people out there getting slammed. Best thing to do is stock up before the storm and stay put. Stay safe.

I'm sure baby Jesus didn't have a binky also. However we went from bare grass to 8" of snow with more still falling. It is beautiful out side. I shoveled our sidewalks and elderly neighbors as I went to the post office this morning to pick up all our mail and delivered on my way back home. They have shut down most of the roads in our area.
I just received a phone call from my youngest brother who told me that our niece, one sister's stepdaughter, was killed in an auto accident in Geneva, Ohio last night. She has six children from 14 down to less than 2 years. What a very sad situation. Praying...

GRAMIAM7, WHAT A BLESSING THAT WILL BE, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO POST PICTURES? I WOULD BE HONORED IF IT WERE MY CHILD BUT ALL MINE ARE IN THEIR 40'S, NO MORE BABIES AND I'M SURE JESUS DIDN'T HAVE A BINKY.

My 7 week old great grandson will be baby Jesus in the early service at church this Sunday. My granddaughter is rather nervous and didn't want him to do it. They pressured her. I can't wait to see him. I hope they don't have to use the binky as I am positive that Jesus didn't have a binky. LOL

Everyone must be busy with all the Christmas goings on. No one is standing at the back fence. Maybe it's the snow keeping all inside where it is warm. Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed weekend!!

Thanks, I'd heard that, too. The last time it happened (to my son) we put it atop the water heater and it did try to work for a couple days but never quite bounced back. Luckily we have backup assistant, so I won't lose my contacts. If the little data card survived the water, I'll have my photos, but I've lost ring tones and games, etc. Such is life. Thank God for the insurance, but shelling out an extra $50 this week is rough. God will provide, I know.

I don't know if this will work for your cell phone or not. I was told if you drop your cell phone in water, like the toilet or something and it gets really wet, put it in a bowl of rice overnight and the rice absorbs the water and the phone will work again. Don't know if it will work because of laundry detergent and heat. It's worth a try. Liz

I'm in a place where it feels like everything is only half done. Lots left to do. Tonight I washed my cell phone in the pocket of my sweatpants I wore home from the pool this morning. *sigh*

Jackie---Busy, busy, busy, as always. We wouldn't know who you were if you weren't so busy! LOL! Hope you get some much needed rest during your break from school.

I sent off the last of the gifts I will be sending this morning. The line was long but I had time to wait so wasn't a problem. I am finished with all but 2 gifts now. I still need to make the tote bag for my dil and finish the knit cap I am making for my brother. The cap is about 1/3 done now and I just started it this morning. Should be able to finish it by tomorrow. Over the weekend I will make the tote bag. It feels good to be able to make things for people that I know they will actually enjoy and it has cost me very little. All of the crocheted things and the knit cap I had the yarn for so didn't have to spend anything on them. The tote I will be making out of fabric I already have so, again, I didn't have to spend money for it. I baked some cookies for my youngest son, just a small amount spent there and I bought a card game for my other son, again a small amount. I will be baking some cookies for him also in the next few days. The only thing that really cost me was the postage to ship to a few people.

Hope all of you are getting all your preparations done and will have time to relax and enjoy your family.

Hi Girls,

I'm afraid the rumor of my demise has been greatly exaggerated." (Mark Twain??)

It’s been a minute since I’ve been on. Hallelujah, the semester is over. It was long and very tough. Not many papers but many books to read and reporting on them through active participation in class… whew… so glad it’s finished for a few weeks.

School starts back up in February (I think) I haven’t wanted to look at the schedule and think about it.

Gotta get off here and go to school/work today…stayed up late doing lesson plans. Now to get back on track with doing them before the stroke of “too late to think” comes up. But that stroke keeps coming earlier than I want it too.

I think I may have told y my friend visited for Thanksgiving… well she helped me put up the tree and I will miss her when it’s time to take it down. But for now I have enjoyed doing my devotions in the living room with the Christmas music on in the background with my homework that had to be done.

Ok, I have to get things back in order in the house. The office looks like a junk shop because I had books everywhere getting my paper done. But it over! Did I say praise God for that already? Ok… just wanted to make sure.

See, I’m now just yakking and need to get going.

Everyone have a great day and I’ll bee chatting soon. Enjoy the busyness of the season and the rest the Christ Child brings in the midst of it all.

I think I may have the right combo of water pill and blood pressure pill figured out...and am feeling good, but tired.

Am officially on vacation until after Christmas... emoticon will have a couple of days to get some household chores done, as DH is home next week as well.

I got a Christmas card from my SIL saying please bring ham and buns LOL. I also make deviled eggs, and cheesecakes. They are easy tho.

Have the shopping done. My family has Christmas after Christmas. Still not sure of date for that, depends on when everyone can fly/drive up.

Better get off here and help DH get supper on.....

Helen, sometimes the holidays are so busy and stressful just getting sleep into the mix is a victory, isn't it? lol I hope you had good sleep last night and a blessed day today!

Ann, I ask for God's favor in getting the 20 hours you'd like to have. He can bring that into being for you!

Cheri, feeling okay?

Sadie, we are so blessed, my sister. Our blessings are far too many to number. Are you all ready for Christmas? I try to get it all done so that I can enjoy the week before Christmas. Unfortunately my own family keeps changing their minds (and my three sisters-in-law LOSING their minds, it seems), so what I have to do keeps changing! lol

Helen---I am not getting as many hours as I would like but once in a while they are calling me to come in for a few hours to cover for someone who could work their shift. By the end of this week I will have worked 17.5 hours with the possibility of getting 4 more hours if they call me in on Saturday. I would love to get an average of 20 hours per week but don't think that will happen any time soon.

Cheri, Praise God that you went to the ER and they changed your meds to meet your needs. WAY TO GO on monitoring your bp and keeping on top of it. Hopefully the now have the meds right and everything is under control.
Ann, Blessings to you for always thinking about Jim and helping to make his life easier. I think the afgan is a terrific idea. I am also happy to read that your manager is nice. Are you getting plenty of hours with the holiday season here?
Missy, enjoy what time you have with Bill...squeeze the most of every minute!!! Hope he is feeling better. Keeping him in prayer.
Time has a way of getting away from me and I need to get myself to bed.
Blessings and hugs to all,
Helen

Sadie, we may not have the money to spend at will but we have the important things in abundance. We have love to lavish on all those within our sphere of influence. We have smiles and an encouraging word for as many people as cross our path (within and outside our home). We have grace to bestow upon ever single person who has ever wronged us. We have hope in overflowing measure for even the most hopeless of cases because of our faith in the One who is capable of anything. Our checkbooks may not agree, sister, but we are SO very rich, and my life is made all the richer because of you and my other SparkSisters.

Ann, I cannot imagine a rock slide. Not in my wildest dreams. I was raised in New Orleans, below sealevel. Those poor people. That had to be terrifying for them. I bet it sounded horrendous. It sounds miraculous that they all survived it. I hope they recognize that God spared them!

Cheri, how scary. Thank God you are safe. I know how stressful that had to be. Stay safe! *hugs*

Wow! How scarey! Thank goodness it wasn't a heart attack and glad you went to the ER and didn't ignore how you felt. I also monitor my blood pressure on a daily basis so I know when things aren't working as they should. Hope the change in meds will keep things under control.
