  3. Thanks all who contributed - I am deleting my bit now.
  4. Thank you for your prayers!! One and a half hours after the initial call to the emergency services, 2 paramedics came out. By this time she had deteriorated to the point where she said she could see her life flashing before her eyes! I have never been with anyone so ill and yet precious time was lost due to red tape and paper work! I have read of cases in the newspapers where this sort of thing has happened but it had to be seen to be believed. Anyway, the paramedics who finally did come were really lovely and stabilized her on the spot so she avoided being admitted to hospital. They gave her intravenous Paracetamol and an anti-emetic which stopped the vomiting immediately and gave her some relief. She had a quiet night and has managed to keep some chicken soup down which means she may be able to try the antibiotics later for her throat and ears. So thank you all again - it was the scariest night of my life!
  5. Our daughter has been being violently sick almost constantly for the past hour. She has even vomited blood but so far we have been unable to get a doctor our to see her! I have never heard such suffering - she sounds as if the sick is strangling her. We desperately need prayers!
  6. Just returning the hello ! :-)

  7. Just stopped by to say hello. x

  8. Just read this Nigel. Knowing you has certainly been a blessing to me and your thoughts and opinions are also a blessing on this site. I'm so glad you have found Worthy to enhance your life. I believe that God has had His hand on you even through the hard places with that "love that will not let us go"!
  9. A well considered and wise reply ncn!!
  10. I finally found a good doctor!!! :emot-highfive: I have Parkinson's so this is very important to me. For years I have put up with minimal interest from my doctor so I finally got up the courage to change to someone I had heard good reports about. Today I went to see him for the first time with something not related to Parkinson's but he asked me how I was getting on and discussed medication and research with me instead of just treating the non related problem! I can't tell you how much this has meant to me, to have a doctor who is interested in the whole person and who seems to care! Pity there aren't more of them!
  11. Hello! Just recovering from my visitors! Hope you are OK!

  12. I don't think I can remember weird things I said as a child - it was rather a long time ago but here are a couple my daughter and grandson thought. My daughter found an old bucket handle (shaped like a crescent) in the garden and came in saying "Mummy, I've found a dead moon"! My grandson saw an industrial chimney with smoke coming out and asked if it was a cloud factory!
  13. What are we actually doing when we “worship” – enjoying the singing of some “worship songs” at church? What actually is the “heart of worship” we sing about? For me it’s something deeply felt but almost inexpressible. The words of Psalm 42 v 7 may not refer to worship but they come to mind as I think about it “Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls” for I believe worship is something deeply felt in various ways. Sometimes it is through verses of scriptures, sometimes through the worship in church but also sometimes through the beauty of creation, a sunset, a mountain range, a piece of music, a flower, a child’s smile. We have all had those breath-catching moments when we have been in awe of the Creator. But the times I have felt I have entered most deeply into worship are those times when everything may be going to wrong around me but I have worshipped as an act of will, once with tears streaming down my cheeks – “I will worship with all of my heart”. As another song puts it “Blessed be Your name When the sun's shining down on me When the world's all as it should be Blessed be Your name. And blessed be Your name On the road marked with suffering Though there's pain in the offering Blessed be Your name” I love that verse in Hebrews 11 v 21 “By faith Jacob, when he was dying..........worshipped as he leaned on the top of his staff”. As I look back over the years, God has been so faithful, during the good times but also so close during the hard times. May I worship like Jacob now and at the end of my life, in spirit and in truth for He is worthy.
