In the month of August 1982 I had fallen sick one Friday morning with what I thought was the flu. I stayed home from work that morning, hoping by the weekend that whatever I had would pass! Then by Sunday afternoon, my parents had come home from church, and my sickness seems to had worsen, so my mom and dad decided to take me to the emergency room of the local hospital. At this time I was not able to walk, they had to place me in a wheelchair, and wheel me into the hospital. My blood was draw, and tests were given, but the results came back that I had some type of stomach virus. So I was prescribed some medicine and released to go home.
Monday morning came, I felt like the medicine was working, but by that evening; the illness was getting worse, the pain in my stomach was beyond painful. I was not able to keep any food on my stomach! I could not imagine what was happening to me!
Tuesday morning arrived, it was nice day! I got up and dress myself for work! I felt absolutely great (I thought)! Then by the time I stepped outside to get into my car a stronger pain occurred, than what I had experienced earlier that week, it stuck me in my lower abdomen. It buckled me over, I then returned back into the house, and call my job to let them know, that I did not feel any better, and maybe by Wednesday I will be back into the office to work. If I could recall I was taken to the hospital again Tuesday evening, and released for home with the same diagnosis (stomach virus).
Wednesday morning arrived, I had a terrible night before, and that morning I was not getting any better! I remember my mother in the kitchen, fixing me soup, but at this time nothing was staying on my stomach. I remember my oldest sister had come home for lunch, and I faintly remember my sister telling my mother, that "we need to take me to another local hospital, and to get another opinion". To this day I thank God for my mother and sister for following their spirit. At the arrival at the other hospital I was admitted and more tests were ran, they still were not able to diagnosis my condition. So the next best thing was to perform exploratory surgery.
After all the pain I had experience I did not want to undergo surgery, but one day a doctor visited my room upon entering, I notice he had on a white jacket, but I did not really notice a name tag. At this time some guests,and I were talking and laughing, which I had not been able to this in a while. The doctor said "hello, he walked over to the right side of my bed and press in my right side and said it was my appendrix, and that I needed immediate surgery". Too this day I did not see this doctor anymore after my surgery! I think about it today, and realized that this person was my angel.
To make a long story shorter, my appendix had already rupture, sending poison thoughout my body, and I remember my mother and father visiting me in ICU, and she was crying! I had ask her why she was crying, after I had recovered, and my mother told me that I so close to dying that the only advice the doctors could give both my mother and father, "was that I was very sick girl and to pray that I recover. And praise be to God it is 2005 and I did recover! But I was told by the doctor in my follow up visit, that it is probable that with all the poison that with thoughout my body, that I may not be able to have children.
When I finally met the my current husband I told him what the doctor's had said, and he told me "we will worry about that mountain when it happens". So when we decide to have children, we prayed that God would show a sign that we could have a child. We conceived our first child, which ended in a devastating miscarriage, but we did not give up my husband and I ask to God show us a sign, and believed the first child was the sign. Then one year from the date of my miscarriage I was expected with my current son, and I prayed that God allow me to carry this child full term. And God did!
~So today December 19, 2005, I am thanking God for my child today! And I pray today for many many more years to come!

Even though I celebrated and worship Christ throughout the year; Christmas was even more special by setting aside precious time to celebrate our Lord and Savior. Around my household growing up Jesus was the reason for this season! I remember my parents would teach us how Jesus Christ died for our sins that we might have the right to the tree of life. My parent always to said to be like Christ, we must love our neighbors, give to the unfortunate, care for one another, and always put Christ first in our lives!
And I cannot forget the person that carried this precious person in her womb, none other than Mary the mother of Jesus! I truly thank God for Joseph for not casting Mary away! Joseph could have been a person to not accept the calling that was placed upon Mary's life. I thank Joseph for being a true man of God allowing his spirit to work, and not the flesh!
We as a people have something to be thankful for!
Luke 2:11 - "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

On the spiritual side, just like we need a "Calgon" moment, we need and "God" moment. So set aside some time for spiritual meditation. If you feel unbalance use some quiet time to prioritze your to do list. If you have older children, teach them to take on some of your responsiblities. I have one child, but I am teaching him to cook, and clean the house. I always tell him you will some day have your own place, and you need to know these things when it is time for you move out.
So this is the time to reflect on how many hats you are wearing, write your list out, and you will be surprised on how multitask you are! The one person that comes to mind is the Virtuous Woman. We are similar to this woman of grace, she rose early to tend to her families needs, she sew, she wore fine linen, brought property, only to name a few. And the best part her family rosed and called her BLESSED!
Proverbs 31:10 - Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies!

There will be laughter and there will be silence thoughts of sadness for those that have passed on. A visit to the nursing home, for those that are sometime forgotten.
This is a time to reflect and say Thanks!
1Timothy 4:4 - For every creature of God is good and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving!

Do you possess the following:
- Temperance: against such there is no law
These are the fruit that I strive to bear in my daily life!
Galatians 5 :22 thru 23, & 25 thru 26 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 25. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

I met Sally coming into work one morning, and told her good monring, and gave Sally a hug... She seem so shock! It seems as if I was spiritually lead to give her a hug.
So today Sally stop by, before starting her shift, and drop off a pair of rhinestone cross earrings, with a note attached that read "Just A Little Reminder God Loves You!!!"... signed Sally.
Sally really made my day! It always pay to treat people with kindness, because you never know whom you may touch!
Thank you again Sally!
When I have a quiet moment, I just hum some tunes from this song! It uplift my spirit everytime. I love singing the melody of praise it brings a calmness in my surroundings.
There is a scripture in Psalms that says "O Sing unto the Lord a New Song"...
Psalms 98:1- O Sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him victory.

What an awesome God we serve, that he control the Sun and the Moon! And if we let him into our lives, he can do the same for us! Thoses that do not understand the God, it seem as a mystery to some. But to thoses that understand the miraculous works of God, understand his power.
Mark 4:11 - And he said unto them, unto you it is given to the mystery of the Kingdom of God: but unto them that are without all these thing are done in parables.

I have a teenage son, whom I tell all the time to believe in yourself, because if you do not believe in yourself, don't expect other people to. That was the hardest advice he could understand, but I always tell him these word "just keep living", and you will understand in due season what mom is talking about.
And I encourage anyone that reads my writings to believe in yourself, don't wait on other people to pat you on your back, sometimes you have to pat your own back! Speak life into your spirit, and see what happens!

I did not mean to get so deep, but I know if I had not had the opportunity to the water that is offered to the samaria woman; I would not be writing these inspiring words. God has done a great things in my life! And I know he will do the same for you!
Are women thirsty enough like the samaria woman? Now it is the season for all to accept this water , that will spring up into everlasting life.
John 4:14,15 - But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water that springing up into everlasting life. 15. The woman saith unto him sir give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

I find walking, is just like my writing, I have to release my thoughts and express myself! I have to clear my mind when I feel the mind is a bit cluttered. When my mind is to full to write, I have to do my mind like my computer, it needs to be rebooted! So, I just alt, crtl & delete and get up to take a 15 minute walk! And the amazing thing is walking works, it allows me to do a spiritual checkup on myself.
If you have so much going on inside your mind, how will our heavenly father enter in to sup with you? So, whatever the case maybe "JUST WALK"!
Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the Lord Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
