Update on requested prayer blog of July 6th!

Friday, July 11, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Natalie posted this a few minutes after 7:30pm on July 8th...

The love of my life has entered Heaven and is now fully healed.


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


I share this information with bittersweet tears welling up in my eyes & a tight squeeze of my heart. Needless to say we are heartbroken with the loss of Chad in this lifetime; however, there is a great peace to be had in knowing that he is in the presense of our Creator God & that, as Natalie said, he "is now fully healed".


Please, continue to remember Natalie & Briton; as well as the rest of Chad's loved ones, in prayer covering, as they deal with life without Chad's presence in the physical form.


I sincerely emoticon each of your for your faithfulness in going before our Abba Father petitioning on behalf of Chad's loved ones! God bless you, now & always!

Asking for your much appreciated prayers!

Sunday, July 06, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


emoticon Natalie has gotten word from Hospice that her husband Chad will probably pass within a few days. She is asking for prayers of strength for her, their daughter Briton, and the entire family. emoticon


The above is from an e-mail, that I received today. Although I have not met this young family, I have been praying for them for some time now --- having heard of their need through a family member.

Please, as Holy Spirit leads you, lift prayer for our Creator God's perfect will to unfold for this young wife & mother & the grade school aged daughter; as well as for her husband, who is reported to be just hours away from entering eternity.

Of course, first & foremost, my sincere prayer is that Chad has made a decision for Christ &, thus, that his family & he have assurance that he will be spending eternity in the presence of our Creator God. Eternity is forever --- a very long time to be separated from the Lord God Almighty!

And, please, do join your prayers with those of others, in the days, weeks, months, & years ahead, for Natalie & very young Briton, as they face all the unknowns in a future on planet Earth without Chad. God bless them all with His unique comfort & peace!

emoticon most sincerely!

And may our Creator God bless each one of you, as you join our Lord Jesus (as He sits on the right hand of the Father making intersession on our behalf), in prayer for Chad & those who treasure & love him!


Please share this request for prayer with other prayer warriors!

Jesus, when Grant was taken home to be in heaven, the Holy Spirit Baptised me and surrounded me with a powerful powerful love peace and grace. This family needs the same caring love You gave me. I was carried for several years both day and night like this - I ASK THAT THIS BE DONE to for Chad's wife and daughter and his other family members.
Heal them in this time as You did me = I can walk in peace now with my son home with YOU. in your name Jesus I PRAY THIS AMEN.

Healthy & inexpensive way to flavor drinking water!

Sunday, June 29, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Over the last few years, I have shared this idea numerous times here at SP.

Each summer, as our days. in the shadow of the Rockies, grow increasingly warmer, I use this idea more & more. I believe it to be something that others might like to try.

A good 99% of the time, I like to drink water plain --- straight from the tap. However, I enjoy adding a bit of a twist when drinking iced water. By simply adding one or two herbal teabags (the choices seem limitless) to a gallon of water, I am able to enjoy flavored water at very little expense. Once served over ice - the melting ice cubes dilute the drink leaving just a hint of flavoring.

I find drinking flavored water made this way to be refreshing without the "iffy" quality, &/or the expense, of pre-flavored water or other water flavorings.

emoticon for stopping by & I truly do hope that you find this idea useful on several levels.

God bless!

    I like to set a pitcher of water out in the sun with a couple of herbal tea bags or plain tea bags in it. Sometimes I add sliced lemons or limes to it as well. As the sun warms it, the flavor developes. When it has flavoured to how I want it, then I place it in the fridge to get cold. yum

    I didn't see it on here, probably because it uses cinnamon along with honey. I have read that if you make a paste of 2 tblsp. honey and a tsp. of cinnamon them mix that with a cup of warm water and take first thing in the morning before breakfast, it helps to relieve arthritis pain. I have tried it and it has helped me some. I don't have the link but if you look up benefits of honey and cinnamon you will find it there.
