  1. Thank you God for leading me to people who can help. I WAS TOLD BY UREGENT CARE THAT I HAD THE FLU, ear infections and a sinus infection.....saw my ENT doc three days later, I have no sinus or ear issues or flu...it's MENIERES EAR DISEASE! He told me stop all the meds given me by the urgent care doc and that it was a waste of money...great. 

    I was diagnosed decades ago but this doc I was seeing tossed me back to my general doc for other issues claiming they are not related to menieres. I have been in bed for weeks with earaches, loss of hearing, nausea and fatigue.....I'm dumping my ent for an expert in the filed, I see them next week. 

    Im learning patience and I think I passed the Test!

    now im helping a neighbor with memory issues until a social worker comes out to do an assessment on her. Poor thing! I am bringing her to church with me to get her out and about. Today we went grocery shopping and had Burger King for lunch!

    because my ear disease gets worse as I get older, it comes no goes for as long as it wants....6 weeks this time or short for just a few minutes,  I won't be on here as much until after the new year. By then I hope to have meds in place, a new diet and hoping for a great expert for my doctor!


    praying for everyone, trust in God asHeis all we need!!!

      Been missing you Karen, and am praying.  My cousin had it but it lasted a few months and never came back.  Glad you are still able to get out and minister to others during this time.

      God bless Karen.

      Praying for you, Karan...  it's great to hear from you! I was wondering where you were.  Here are some hugs for you, too.... bear-hug-2.gif

  2. Gosh, i learn new things each day I....
    Ive been feeling queasy for over a week with nasal allergies from the forest fires smoke, or so I thought. With anxiety and depression i was so achy during this time i thought i must be low on some vitamins and i am having surgery next month so i am thinking I'm low on something. I was going to try and work out but gosh, everything hurt no matter what i did but I didn't have a fever, didn't know what the heck was going on.

    so i see my regular doc for a physical, she took chest X-rays as i have fallen twice in the last two years and really cracked my ribs...so achy muscles moving could be bruised muscles and Ive never been tested for Hep C so why is my one area really poofy and sore to the touch?


    well, arriving home from the docs i got sick. Laid down and rested before going to the store. Got sick in the parking lot...went home and went to bed, dang, had to miss bible studies but i just hurt so much....what the heck???


    ok, tests all come back normal, X-ray normal no hep c....

    i have the flu and and ahead cold...that's it...

    THE FLU!! How can I feel normal with just queasiness off and on? No fever no chills etc. i thought it was weird...then i took oregano oil last night as throat began to hurt with the allergies....stayed in bed today and oregano oil again...chicken soup and rest....

    viola, pain is gone, queasiness is gone and the oregano oil is working how come I didn't think it was the flu? Its weird....

    as i age my body Is doing some weird things and now i know if I get the flu, its not gonna be like I'm immobile for days and throwing up for days on end....its a GOOD THING but I worried for nothing really.

    but I am working on trusting God for ALL my needs and this was a weird fluke that got me anxious..silly me. Focus on God and viola, He helps me thru everything!!

    thanks for listening. Its hard to faithful isn't it? But thank God He is ALWAYS is faithful~ AMenQ

  3. Please pray for situation

    Sorry I read this post wrong. Deleted my response. Stay on focus with Christ as your Lord and let the HOly Spirit lead you into His Word. Was your wife brought up in church and perhaps she's had a bad experience? Perhaps counseling is needed for a tweaking of communications? Praying for you both, its hard to live with an unbeliever.
  4. Had a great sermon on the parable of the sower. Wonderful just wonderful.

    Then I went to see my Dad. He's asking the staff how long he has to stay there. Then he asked me where he was again and what city. 
    He tried to sleep but eyes would not close all the way......

    Before I leftI told him I loved him and will bring some cheese popcorn on the next visit.

    Then I put the a Scripture verse on the bulletin board from this mornings sermon. 
    God has it all in control.


    10 Then the disciples came and said to him, "Why do you speak to them in parables?"
    11 And he answered them, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.  He's talking about non believers here.

    12 For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
    13 This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.   He begins to talk about the non believers, the pretenders those who call or think they are "christians" but they do not hear/nor heed His Word. 

    14 Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: "'"You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive." 
    15 For this people's heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.' 

    16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
    17 For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.

    18 "Hear then the parable of the sower:
    19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.
    20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy,   ( but its endurance and faith the believer has)
    21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word,

    22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.
    23 As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty." - Matthew 13:10-23

  5. Dating site

    No, save your money and find someone at church or a bible study......I've tried all the web sites for Christians and got one response from a man in MN but unfortunately he was in a cult church and refused to talk about it.
  6. WOW! I finally got an updated and bigger iPad and I love this keyboard.  Now I will be able to load all my stuff on here and quote things fast when I need too!

    Its been a few years I almost forgot how to type!

    Praying for the world with all the weather happening, all the fires and just the corruption of the people. Its so disturbing to see young CHILDREN viciously attacking younger children, I mean attacking!! Kung fu kicks to the chest of small girls by 9-12 yrs old boys, groups of teens filming and deciding who is going to be their next victim?????
    These are the last days and I pray Jesus Comes SOON!

    I'm taking www.villageoftheschoolsbible.org classes again for the fifth time. A friend and I were chatting that we are not taking as many notes as we did the first few times, that information is being retained and we are noting things more along the line of patterns, prophecies, people etc. Its very nice to be able to type!


    Have to say good night as daughter is visiting to check out my iPad!!



  7. Be content in all things.

    I don't want to be like the Exodus generation who kept looking backwards to Egypt, I'm moving forward with God!

    It's always an adjustment moving and dealing with elderly, those older than my age but what an opportunity to pray for all these people!

    Helen is forgetful, she fell on a walk so I gave her an ice pack with a velcro strip to hold it on her wrist. She forgot I gave it to her 😊 she is sweet and repeats herself but she's happy and in good health.

    Joyce, older, moves slowly with a walker and wants no help whatsoever. As long as she's moving, she's doing well! It may take a while but she's not in a hurry anyway! 😊

    Larry the bully, that was very interesting. I didn't know who he was and hes a very loud and angry man, people like me need to know all the rules of the community n he can write me up. He was very threatening, I didn't have my phone with me and he blocked my dog cart so I couldn't move! Ok, so I said I was... . Oh, wait, he's not going to let me speak, he's only yelling louder and listening to himself.  I walked away and the carnal me yelled out NAZIS! AS I WANT TO THE ELEVATOR...

    Forgive me God, that man was a threat, if I had my phone I would have called 911. I take my phone with me everywhere now... My friends asked if he was mentally ill? I said I don't even know who he is but I will pray that God settles his angry persona....

    His wife is on the " board"  and although he wasn't at the meeting,, my attorney friend spoke on my behalf and I'm sure everyone got the message I will stand up to bullies no matter who they are. Respect and common sense is needed in a community, not legalistic nut jobs yelling at new condo owners.

    I'm sad to say there's been allot of turnover in the 60 days I've been here because people have died or needed nursing home assistance. But a new influx of owners is a welcomed thing!

    So, no complaints, I know the stress of a house and keeping the yard up were a big burden but one I didn't really acknowledge until I moved. It's hard to see the good when I'm just focused on the stressful Soo this move was a great choice!

    I'm taking village of the schools Bible studies classes, fifth time on the OT and next spring the NT. In our first class I've learned something new about God already but He is infinite so I look forward to all I can learn!

    I pray everyone here is doing well as August is winding down.

    Be well


  8. When I hear people say God has lied to me or he said this but not that, it's almost 100% error on the human understanding of God, His nature and His character. Please join a Bible study class and or get a Holman Christian study Bible. There are many things we cannot know of God this side of heaven but He's told us all we need to know to live a godly life for Him in the Bible. 😊
  9. Prayers and praises

    Hi, an update. The mom is open to hearing The Word but her daughter who's my age, 59-60, is all about having her itchy ears tickled. I invited both to church and the daughter wanted to confirm I had an open church. Why yes, it's open to all sinners. She wanted acceptance of a homo brother. I said absolutely if he's repentful and not living in his sin... She wanted to hear the pc code word homos are accepted...I said they are but they need to be repentful and not living in sin. I told them about my homo niece and I don't think they will visit, so sad. Oh well, they've heard the gospel message and I'm still praying for them. Lots of new things I'm learning in this condo community..... Stay tuned!😏
  10. Dear God Our Father

    Hi kp Things are going well in my new condo. There are lots of rules, there's a building bully, yes even older people can still be bullies, but I voiced my complaint to "the board" with my attorney friend and I don't think he will be bullying me anymore 😊. I'm in village schools of the Bible class on Weds night. This is the 5 the time I've taken it, it's that good! If you'd like to take this on line, go to www.villageschoolsoftheibible.org. ask Warren or Trisha if you can get a scholarship to pay for the class! People make donations so others who can't afford to pay the class price are still able to take the class. Let Warren or Trisha know you're a friend's of mine too🤗 It's true, know the Bible know peace of God! Have a great weekend Karan 😊
  11. Feeling hopeless?

    Hi kp, Well I gave my friend the gospel message and he doesn't want to change his life. He's always been a drama guy since Jr high and here we are at 60 😱and he's still acting like he's in Jr high..😬.smh. I am praying for him and don't expect to hear from him again. A brother in Christ who was this drama guys friends in school said hes a hard not to crack but that's not my job. He's already been given the gospel so... We're letting the Holy Spirit do his work 😊 I hope all is well with you! Karan
  12. Dear God Our Father

    Dear Heavenly Father, Today we come to you to pray and ask for Your help in many situations. I'm hurting, family members are hurting, children are hurting, the elderly are hurting. Emotional pains are just as hard to deal with as physical pains. Are we trying too hard, not hard enough? Why am I still aching, still crying, still trying to deal with this thing this very moment? I'm learning to take the focus off myself and place it back on You for all my needs. Yes, I may need patience to wait, yes, I may need to stop a bad habit, yes let me focus on what You would have me do today for Your Glory. I can pray, I can pray for others, I come humbly before You a broken Spirit and I know this feeling is only a momentary affliction. Please give me, my family, friends and the lost Your words of wisdom to continue to live daily for You. Life is hard but we know without You it's even harder yet. Grace us with Your peace and comfort. Mental illness is not a reason to lose hope or feel helpless when we have You the great Physician and Healer. Please text 741741 to reach a Crisis counselor and understand tomorrow will come when you have Good and Jesus as Your Savior. Take a day off and rest in His word and His peace. Take a walk with a friend, talk over a cup of coffee, and really know, you are not alone. May God BLESS , I ask in Jesus name, those who needed to hear this today. Amen.
