So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

The cancer is back, Dear friends.
I will know more next week.
Please continue to pray that there was no more spread.
The tumor was very tiny (9mm)..
It was about an inch and half deep down just
the fact that i even found it was a miracle.
God is in control.

Needing Prayer

I'm sitting here on this beautiful Monday, just looking out the window. I am alone..but I'm not alone.

The Lord is with me.

The enemy tries to convince me otherwise. He is a liar.

I have been complaining to my doctors about pain in my right forearm for nearly a year now. I was told it was tendenitis.

When I did not get improvement over time, I asked for an x-ray. It showed nothing abnormal.
My doctor did not investigate further. (He seems too busy these days).

A few weeks ago I started experiencing pain in my right shoulder blade radiating down into that forearm again.

I went to my surgeon.
I went alone..(I did not expect anything but an ultrasound that day.)

He removed a small tumor.
it was sitting right on the nerve that caused the forearm pain all these months.

I must wait now for the results from pathology.
I should know by Wednsday.

“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
Deuteronomy 31:8

Your prayers are welcomed!

Don't Dread on Me!

Do not call conspiracy everything this people calls a conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it.
Isaiah 8:12

We may not know what our future holds, but we know WHO holds our future!

 I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.
Jeremiah 29:11

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

Just a few thoughts to brighten your day!

Predicting the future..Not.

I just got home from a few days  spent with my two oldest daughters. We had a really nice time. 
I was out of state on the 23rd of September when many well-meaning Christians were expecting the rapture to occur on that day. Obviously we are still here.. ( Or are we?... 😲 .. lol
I am not going to get into the specifics of that except to say that hopefully every time this sort of thing happens (and it happens pretty often) it causes us to at least take a moment in order to listen more carefully to The Lord, to examine and re-examine our walk with him..and then to decide that we do believe his word to be true even when we don't always understand it, or we get it wrong. 
Finally, we must remember that whatever happens (or doesn't happen) is all according to HIS plan, NOT ours!

Just as I am not about to try to predict when any Biblical prophecy will come to pass..I am also not going to try to predict what the future of this blog will be. It had always been something I felt led by God to do.
Today I felt led to write this post. 
Tomorrow I may not be.
I am still trying to keep up with Face Book..without much success I'm afraid!
Today my computer is working pretty well..I cannot presume that it will tomorrow, lol!
I hope to find something to write about again very soon though.
So, I will sign off on this post wishing all who may stop by here for a visit will find some enjoyment in whatever I write.

~Blessings & Love~
and always remember,
we are...

Sasha passed from this life on Wednesday, April 19th 
She was at home and surrounded by her Mama and Daddy and brother, Buddy.
I'm sorry I did not let you all know sooner..It is just so painful (still).
She would have been 14 in June.

She really loved the snow!
We told her it was time to go run with Emma in heaven, and that Jesus would take good care of her until we get there.
Emma and Sasha about ten years ago

Attainable Goals for 2017

It's been a long, strange winter here in Northern Michigan.
But the song of the red-winged blackbird has returned once again, bringing the message of hope and renewal that spring always brings to the earth.

I have resolved once and for all to never make New Year resolutions again. 😄 
Instead I have made a list of achievable goals for the year.
Among these goals are:
*Go back to church. 
I attended church today for the first time in several months. You know you've been gone too long when the pastor forgets your name!
I also finally got my computer repaired two days ago. It took them a whole ten minutes to replace the faulty Power Supply Unit; so I thought today would be a good day to get started on another goal....drum-roll....

*Get back into blogging regularly!

In fact, some of my other goals can be used in blogging, such as:

*Practice kindness and mercy toward others.
*Write more often, but using less words. (challenging for me)
*Slow down and do things with more thought and care.
*Be more organized.
*Focus more on relationships, not material possessions.
Of course I must be able to balance the time spent online in order to achieve the last goal ...
*Keep house neater, cleaner, and more organized.
 I have been practicing this for a couple of weeks now, and am finding that with a little organizing and decluttering, this is becoming easier every day.

Well, that wraps this post up for today.
Thanks for visiting me here!

~Blessings & Love~

Dear Abba,

I lift up your Holy nation, Israel, and your Holy city, Jerusalem.
Protect your people, and make them to stand firm in the knowledge of your promises.
I pray that you would remind them of your everlasting covenant concerning the land that you have given them.
I pray also, for a hedge of protection to be placed around Donald Trump and his family and staff..That you would have his heart guarded against deception and to have his heart set upon Israel continuously, so that America will be called a blessed nation under God once again!
May any resolution from the UN to divide your holy city be cut down, and any effort or attempt by Iran or any other nation to attack your people, Israel, be turned back upon their own heads!
Finally, Abba, may your people who are called by your name humble themselves and pray, and seek your face, and turn from their wicked ways that you might forgive us our sin, and heal our land!
In Jesus, I ask...~Amen~

So do not fear,  for I am with you;      do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen  you and help  you;      I will uphold ...
