Thank You for Your Prayers

Ladies, thank you so much for all of your prayers. It's been a rough week but I am feeling much better. Dani is on the mend too. A good friend was checking up on me and asked if I was discouraged with all that was going on in our family. I said, "Not at all! I see God all over the place as He graciously provides for our every need." For example, there is no way I could have driven myself to the chiropractor Monday morning. My neck was so stiff and painful that dabbing tears from my eyes with a Kleenex triggered muscles spasms that sent me yelping in pain. Since Jimmy's job has him traveling out of town Monday though Thursday on a full-time bases, his being in between jobs was a clear blessing of provision from our mighty God who knew this would be a trying week.

I have to share with you how things went from bad to worse. Monday morning Jimmy took Dani and I to the chiropractor. I had to hold my head to keep it from moving so as not to trigger the spams. The doctor worked on me for 2 1/2 hours and adjusted Dani as well because she had quit eating and was constipated. Dani has always gotten instantly better after seeing the doctor but this day was not like any other. On the way home, as I held my head and yelped periodically, Dani began vomiting all over herself in the back seat. I couldn't even look back let alone climb back to help her. I just listened and wondered what else could go wrong. Jimmy had his hands full as things began piling up on him. After taking a quick glance back at Dani's mess, he turned back at the highway ahead and said, "This is a test." He was right and it was only the beginning. Before day's end she had vomited all over herself, the couch, Jimmy, and his laptop. 

Your prayers, however, got us on the mend. Wednesday we were all able to go to my sister's home to do a photo shoot for her Christmas cards. She lives on acreage and has three Silky Bantam chickens as pets. They are sleek and beautiful as far as chickens go. Jimmy got Dani to hold one and trust me that was a feat in itself. 

Then, I knew Dani was feeling better 
when she got into my make-up 
and used my cover up stick as lipstick.

It's so good to feel better and oh how I thank God for the health He's given us and the faithful and powerful prayers of the saints!

Blessings to all of you dear ladies and please share on this post any prayer needs you may have so we can lift one another to the throne of God.

"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, 
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." 
1 John 4:12

Do you think that Grant's parents would want to do a raffle? I just read through their caring bridge site and was SO moved by what an amazing boy Grant is. Anyways, I would love to help set up a raffle, and maybe we could raise the funds to help with a machine so Grant can communicate. I was just so moved and wanted to offer to help.

Please email me (or have his parents email me) if it's something you think we can do. I will do my best to get as many people involved as I can, and I'd be happy to donate some blog makeovers too.

I'm so glad you and Dani are feeling better.
You guys had a rough week.
When I'm sick like that or have one of my bad headaches, I think about those who are in pain and sick all the time. It sure makes me appreciate when I feel good.

The pictures of Dani are so cute. I love the ones where she's in your makeup.

Have a great week!

So glad you are feeling better, Nancy. Years ago I woke up with a sprained neck. Just woke up and couldn't move without excrutiating pain. It was awful. When I read your post, I remembered it as if it were yesterday.

Praise God you're better.
