 I know it has been a long time since I have blogged.  Not that I did not want to but just that my  mine doesn't seem to be functioning to well.  Could it be age?  Maybe!  I won't deny that I go from room to room trying to remember what I am looking for!  Seems that disease is making it's rounds in young and old.  lol

I said I would not write unless I could be positive.  I hate pity parties.  So I will just say that we have had a few storm clouds pass by.  We made it fine through the actual tornado.  God really blessed and kept His hand on us.  It passed right over us and seem to linger for a while.  We have a generator ~ so things were not too bad.

But a few other kind of storms have been around.  I have been in the bed for a couple months with my back.  I have 3 degenerated disc.  My PCP told me it was time to go see a specialist.  My legs are being affected.  So I go Friday to a Specialist.  I have not been able to walk by myself without holding on to something or somebody.  Then my fibromyalgia  acts up with pain.  Pray that the doctor will do the right thing.

Silas was working in the garden  about 6 weeks ago and damaged a nerve.  He is much better after several weeks of therapy.  My problem here is to keep him from doing too much too soon.  Why are men so hard headed?  Guess I have said enough along that line.

Worse yet, forget that if you wish but there is a much greater need.
My sister and her husband lost their 30 yr. old son on the 11th.  I cannot imagine what they are going through.  I just know that God knows best and will give them the grace they need.  But prayer does help.  I know they could not bear this without the Lord.  They live in Pennsylvania and pastor a church there.  Please pray for them.  They have an older son, wife and two grand children.  

Hopefully I can get back to posting more often.  I so enjoy hearing and reading your blogs.

Aliene, praying for you and hope that the doctors will be able to help you and your husband. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your nephew. It is so sad to lose a child.

Hi Aliene,
Praying for our Great Physician to touch you and Silas and heal you completely. He is the same yesterday, today and forever and He is able.
Praying also for your sister and their family. I can't imagine their heartbreak and loss. May God wrap them in His loving arms and send His Comforter to console and comfort their hearts.
Be and stay well my friend!
Hugs and prayers,

Hi Aliene, just read blog talk and your blog, so sorry to hear about everything that has happened. We do have an awesome God and I will be praying for your sister and her husband and family that the Lord will comfort them in their loss. Ps 34:18. You and Silas too will be in my prayers that the Lord will restore you to full health. God Bless, Jean x

I'm so sorry, Dear, about your back and the pain. You really have had a hard time. Praying for your sister and her husband and family. My best friend lost her grown son. I know it is so hard. My younger brother passed away a couple of months ago. It is sad, especially at holidays. Praying for you and your husband ~
Hugs ~
