Happy New Year...Prayers

Hi everyone,

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas.

This is just a quick post to say, have a very Happy New Year.

Not sure when I will be back to post again. I will and do already miss you all. I enjoy all of your comments. They make my day. I can receive them on my cell phone internet. :) Thank goodness for that. :)

I pray that all of you will have a wonderful day. That your holiday vacation time will be what you want it to be. 

Thank you so much for your concern for me and my family. We do still need your prayers. Things are still so hard for my sister. I tried to talk to mom today and she hung up on me twice. :( Poor dear, she is just not herself.

I pray for you all each night. Take care and God bless. 

PS..We have been getting snow the past few days. I just love it. :)

My Heart Hurts....

As I was trying to go to sleep last night I was praying. Father, please get this song out of my head. It was, We Wish You A Merry Christmas...it doesn't belong in my head right now.

My heart hurts....I cried as I read about the shooting. How awful, how frightening. It hurts so bad. :(  Thousands maybe millions of people around the world have been affected by this. They are not my neighbors, friends or children. But I care. 

My Jewish friend told me the news in a text on my phone. She said don't you have fences and guards at your schools? We do. It makes us feel safe.  But this is America..we don't need this, or tanks rolling down the streets and armed guards patrolling  everywhere. THAT is frightening.  Other countries need that, but not us. I can't sleep. I wonder how many others there are in bed not sleeping.

Some of the thoughts above were what I was thinking in the night and made notes in my phone of.  It has hurt to read your posts. I  also feel your pain. I have cried.

The bible says these things will happen. Luke 12 :53 And it will get worse before it gets better. It will get better. But why do people have to suffer so? Why, the little ones? And those little ones who saw it happen?

I don't know what to say.

And of those who responded...what an awful thing to see. And to those to gave their lives for the children...

I am grateful for the knowledge that I have of the Savior and his love for all of us. And that those who died are with Him and He is holding them tight.
Father, please hold close those who are mourning. Please bless them with the strength to get through the next few days, weeks and the rest of their lives. The holidays will be so hard for them. Bless them to feel peace and comfort and Your arms around them. 

In Jesus name, Amen.

May God bless us all.

What Your Prayers Did...Thank You

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post....yeah I said that last time didn't I? LOL  I just wanted to thank you sweet ladies for your comments on my last post ( I was in tears as I read them) and to tell you what happened.

My sis in law and her hubby came up and took us to dinner the other night. We went to a place called Cafe Rio. Great Mexican food. Anyway, we talked about the troubles my mom and sis are having because we were going to need their help. While we were talking I started getting an awful neck ache. From the stress I suppose. I have never had a pain like it. The pain did leave when we left the restaurant. 

We were just not sure how we were going to make this move. Now this is where your prayers come in....

After we got home and I am not sure if it was before or after I had the usual quick phone conversations with mom and sis....

I just all of a sudden had a feeling like a big burden was removed from me. I actually felt it leave me. I felt a peaceful, calm feeling. AND knew that we didn't have to hurry to get up to Washington to be with mom and my sister. Now I know that for my sister this is a very trying time and that she is at her wit's end...but a person can handle more than they think they can.  I will help her. And the Lord never gives us more than we can handle.

I felt that she AND mom will be ok til we can get there. There are so many things that have to be done on both ends (here and there), before we can leave. Heavenly Father was telling me that "it is ok. Everyone will be fine. Just take your time get organized and things will be well. All is well."

Gosh, I love when that happens. Have you ever had the "Spirit" tell you things? Remember the verse in the New Testament? 

" Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." 

Matthew 11:28

Another of my favorite verses:

Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.

Jesus promises us "rest" from our burdens if we come unto Him. And answers to our prayers. Isn't that wonderful? 

Thank you for your support and prayers. God bless you.

Hi To All And A Prayer Request....

Hi everyone,

This  will be short. I am at the town library because we don't have internet at our house at the moment. :( 

First I want to say that I will try to catch up reading and commenting on your posts. I am about a week behind. I have read through some and enjoyed the fun stories and the great pictures of you decorations for the holidays.

You are all so wonderful and talented. :)

Sunday my sister called to talk to me about our mother.  They live together and so my sister is having to cope with things on a daily basis. She has her own troubles that she is dealing with as I have mentioned before, Parkinsons's, epilepsy and such.

She says that she feels that she just can't take it anymore. She says that she is just watching mom sit there and die. :( It has been a very difficult thing for her. I understand that and it breaks my heart.

We feel that is urgent that we do there to help but don't know how we are going to do it. Money wise we are just broke. We are 1,00 miles away. And trying to work out all the details has been so stressful that I have had severe pains in my head and neck.

We need to figure out what to do and get gone before the snow flies or we will be here til late spring. My sister feels that mom won't make it that long.  I have been praying them through several winters now. I need your help.

Please prayer for them. Pray for them to have the health and strength they need to take care of themselves and each other. And to be patient with themselves and each other. And to some how have the support that they need there. I don't want my sister to be alone if mom 'goes.' And I don't want mom to be alone either.  I want to be able to be there when I am needed. 

I don't think this turned out to be short. Sorry about that.  Thank you in advance for your kind words and prayers. They are always so helpful to me. I love you ladies. :)

I may not be able to post for a few days because of having to go down town to a computer but I will get your comments on my phone internet. :)

Take care and God bless you all.

Anyone who thinks sunshine is
pure happiness,
has never danced in
the rain.

I can't believe that it is already December. Usually at this time we can expect to be under a few feet of snow. For now we are having cool days and even cooler nights, and a little rain.

This isn't here. I just thought it looked nice. :) It reminds me of when we lived in the mountains of northern Utah, only without the paved path. One day soon I hope to wake up to this...

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. God Bless
