I thank my precious Abba Father (Creator God) for all He has allowed, is allowing, & will allow in my life! May all the glory for any modest successes achieved on this lifestyle changing journey be His & His alone! Amen & Amen!

Life is good - it always has been - however, there is a special new sweetness to it since I determined to stop playing around & get serious about following my program.

Like I said - life is good!

P.S. ~

The 'Twin Visitors" photograph was taken in early July. I looked out the window & had the pleasant experience of being eye-to-eye with one of them. Their Mama was right with them in the trees outside the window. They were so adorably cute!

My dearly treasured "Mr.V" quickly got the camera & took a few photographs. I think it is so cute how one seems to be posing for the picture to be snapped, while his twin is eagerly following their Mama!

    Sometimes the greatest gift you can give another is to ask for help. There is pleasure in giving. Gail Lynne Goodwin

    My husband was out driving the day the power went out and said he saw a crew at some sort of station (power station?) where there is electrical equipment. I don't think the outage was from wind.

    It amazes me how we have escaped damage and other places have had problems as a result of the weather. Our lights did not even flicker when hurricane Sandy went through along the Atlantic. The winds were sustained above 70 mph. I did what I could do in battening down the hatches. My son and husband were not here to help before the storm started. We had a wood pile of several pallets of stacked wood, covered with tarps. I prayed and God was pleased to answer my prayers. Nothing blew from our yard into the neighbors' yards, nor from theirs into our yard.

    When hubby was in Wyoming at Thanksgiving, the wind picked up and on trash night when the recycling and yard waste is also set out, a bin full of paper upset and it was all over the place. Some had the woman's name and address on them. She was in the habit of tearing things into strips. The paper was under bushes, in the lower limbs of bushes, up against fences and anywhere the wind could carry it. It took me a good while to get it picked up out of the front yard and there were pieces that had blown over the chain link fence into the back yard. Food packaging was in the street and in others yards as well.

    I did not have much pain with my kidney stone, just discomfort that moved around; across my abdomen below the navel, across my abdomen above the navel, the left side of my abdomen and in my back. The worst for me was that I was sick at my stomach and nothing was given to me in the ER for nausea or pain for hours. I think I may have passed it before I was given morphine in my IV. I was so glad that I could rest.

    When I got a hospital room, a male nurse kept me awake until well after midnight with questions about health conditions, a heparin shot, medications, a blood pressure reading and a finger stick to check my blood glucose. I didn't sleep that night due to a mild cramp in the back of my left thigh. I don't sleep on my back and had the IV tubing to contend with trying to sleep on either side.

    The following morning on Monday, after I had my medication and had my blood drawn, I slept well for a few short hours before breakfast.

    The Coke rewards are not very good anymore. I got a $10 gift card through my e-mail to WalMart. I use the codes to get coupons off for more Coke for hubby since he is addicted to it. He will spend our money on it even when we need other things, so I may as well try to save our money by using a coupon.

    I'm sending a Spark Mail to you.

    My Facebook post Sunday: Requesting prayer. God knows what is going on.
    Monday's post to Facebook: I was sorry to not be specific with this prayer request. I have a congenital disorder of extra sections and extra tubes going from my kidneys to my bladder on both kidneys. I have stage one chronic kidney disease. When all this hit yesterday during church, I did not know what I would be facing. Kidney stones are wickedly painful, but the blessing is, and the fear that I had yesterday, was that the kidney disease might be worsening. I didn't want to be told my kidney disease was getting worse and dialysis was in the back of my mind; being told it was not that was a great blessing to me and a huge relief, though I was very, very sick. It was like I knew I needed to go to the emergency room, but had a great dread of what they might tell me was wrong.

    We have been studying Daniel chapter 7 and comparing it to Revelation. The time of Jacob's trouble will soon be upon the Earth.
