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. 


  1. Janet, I think you have been so stressed...that's the pain. God does have a way of making it work out. We are suppose to view our burdens in the morning, then turn them over to God. I have my mom's big old worry gene..so it's easier for me to say this than practice it..but I am learning.Blessings to you and your families. xo,Susie

  2. I am so glad you had that experience-it is so comforting knowing the answer is with Him. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

  3. Janet- I was wondering where you were. I am so glad that you have found some peace in the whole thing. I have felt that a couple of times in my life when I was so stressed-just this deep, calm peaceful feeling coming over me..and a "this will be okay" sort of feeling.

    Keep us posted as to what is happening- xo Diana

  4. Oh Janet,
    I am so happy for you that you have had your prayers answered, and felt the comfort of the Holy Ghost!!

    May you continue to feel comforted, and peace in your heart during this time.



Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a wonderful day. :)
