Unplugging

This past Thursday night, I went down to our basement to get some sheets from the dryer. I fell off the old kitchen chair I keep down there to set clothes baskets on. I leaned back and the chair's left  back leg came off the raised concrete platform. I was thrown to my left, I twisted my back,brushed my side against the end of a sawhorse we have down there.  All I could think was."I don't want to hit my  head." When I landed,I was on my hands and knees.

I  am sore on the left side of my back and have experienced muscle spasms on the left side of my front. When I cough or laugh, it is not fun. I also had to ask a friend from church, "Please don't make me laugh."

I chose not to go to the ER Thursday night because I didn't know how I  could get there. The pain in the back is not as bad as it was. I am using a walker to get around the house--to the kitchen and to the bathroom.

Hubby redid our rock garden in front of our house. I did take the walker out to see it. This was what he wanted to do for Mother's Day. He worked on it for five days and he.also, is stoved up. Son came in early this afternoon. I don't know if we are going to make it to church in the morning. I depends on how I feel.

I don't really know how long I will be unplugged. I intend to see my doctor on Monday.

I wish to  extend Mother's Day greetings to all my friends who  are mothers, stepmothers, or menotors to children. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Deliverance and Light



“You, who love the LORD, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them from the hands of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.” Psalm 97:10-11 (NKJV)

               The psalmist directs those who love the Lord to hate evil. We then read that God preserves the souls of those who He has set apart for His works. We are told, God keeps safe those who follow Him.

               God doesn’t allow His children to reside in darkness. He leads them through those difficult times into the realm of His light. He injects gladness into the souls of those who have clean pure hearts.

               We have to rely on God protecting us in this 21st Century. We see and hear of things that break our hearts. Can we imagine what these events do to God’s? All we can do is pray for those who are victims and ask Him to guide their families through their time of grief.

Book Review: 31 Days of Mountaintop Miracles

One Woman’s Legacy of Unconditional Obedience                          Product Details  



By Susie Y. Jennings with Allison Bottke

               Susie Yanson grew up in the Philippines. Her mother was always feeding and clothing the hungry homeless people in their kitchen. Susie didn’t care to do this; in fact, she vowed never to do this when she grew up. She went to nursing school. She eventually came to the United States to work at Baylor University Medical Center.

               She went through the tragic loss of her husband in 1993. She lost a neighbor five months later. That October, she obeyed God’s direction and saw many people living under a bridge. 

What she saw that day and what God told her to do—“God down there in person.” spawned a ministry to the homeless that has grown from just Dallas Texas to include India, Africa, Taiwan, China, Cambodia, Jordan, Indonesia, and Israel.

               Operation Care has grown from a local ministry to an international outreach organization because of prayer and the obedience of this lady who saw a need and filled it. There were times that a need seemed insurmountable but every time Susie Jennings took it to the Lord. God met her needs for this ministry in remarkable ways and in very quick time.

               I find this book enlightening. In order for each of us to grow in the LORD, we need to learn to be aware of what God wants from us and then put that into practice.

               I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with walking with God, and to people who have a desire to serve Him wholeheartedly in any ministry He places them.


               I received a free copy of this book from the author via The Book Club Network. All I was asked to do was give an unbiased review.
