I would like to start a forum to meet other middle age or older women who have bc and love the Lord.  Try to live your life for him, walk the walk and talk the talk.  Of course we all fall from grace because we are human but we are covered by the blood of Jesus.  Also this forum is for people who has a large enough vocabulary that they don't need to use profanity to explain theirselves.  I will start.

Des, am praying for your dad to be pain free, is it too late to treat his glucoma?  You ended your post with may God richly bless you which reminded me of dr. vernon McGee i use to listen to him every single day on back through the bible and he always ended his sermons with and may God richly bless you my beloved.

lbmt, i have always craved love and acceptance from my mom also and it still hurts but she made it plane in front of my husband and grandson last month that I would never be on her love list and that my brother who was the sweet and loveable.  He died in his 40's of alcoholism and a artery rupturing in his stomach.  Also had a bad experience with my past church that I was active in.  We visited different churches for a long time until we found one that we fit, felt like home.  I pray you find what you are looking for and you have the strength to finally let your mom go,  I am 58 and it just happened for me.

Arnie, love love love the braclet how very special.

Thank you all for your prayers and the onc office called, the xray is clear and the white count is really high but she doesn't want me to take anymore antibiotics, she wants to see what it is going to do and get more lab done in a bit.  Actually I am feeling a lot better today and after fasting and the whole church praying I  have a feeling the xray tomorrow will show I am healed, will be very shocked if I am not.

Sheila and JO, to both of you I say I LOVE YOU

HEALING

God's healing hand reached out to me
When I was hurt by life.
His arm wrapped 'round in comfort
protecting me from strife.

My prayer was answered in His love.
His saving Grace the key
To finding peace I had not known.
And joy came back to me.

Sandra, that is beautiful.  Today is the day for the xray also the good Friday service tonight at church.  Am feeling so much better today.  One of the leaders of the church called last night and asked me if I would be the official editor of the church for monthy bulletins and weekly newspapter articles and pictures.  I have done the newspaper articles 3 times now but am kind of nervous I don't know if I am qualified to do it.  Will have to do some praying about it today.  Need to start getting ready to go to the city so everyone have a God blessed day.

What a blessed day this has been.  I feel good!  the xray finally is showing I am healed enough to walk without a walker, have to wear the brace for 6 more weeks and then a cat scan to make sure.  Went to Good Friday service and man oh man the holy spirit was moving.  there was not a dry eye in the place, men, women, even teenagers were so moved.  What a wonderful blessing tonight has been and looking forward to Easter Service Sunday. 

Laurie, thank you for opening up and sharing with us.

Patoo, Arnie, JO, and all my sisters in Christ, hope you all have had a God blessed day.

Hi spar.  That is good news but please continue to take it easy even with the brace.  You know you and JO are prone to "accidents"!!  Kiss

I am also looking forward to Easter Sunday service.  Good Friday was wonderful but Sunday is traditionally when my tears flow.  I can't wait.  It's like a renewal of faith.

Patoo ... to say I was not 'blessed' with a good voice is like saying Katrina was a little bit of a wind storm.  I hope to rectify this when I get to Heaven because singing is one of the best ways to rejoice in the Lord.

Have a blessed Easter!

LOL, I remember my grandpa "singing" in church, really he honked like a goose, and he'd say the Lord said make a joyful noise not beautiful music...

Patoo, I thought of you yesterday as I drove a 15-passenger van to work.  I'm in a van pool and a back-up driver when the main driver needs the day off, like yesterday. 

Bear in mind, these people have not seen me for a couple of months because of surgery and chemo.  I've been driving myself and/or telecommuting since end of Jan.  But am healed enough now to "manhandle" the van - good thing, it was real windy yesterday afternoon - and at a place in tx's where I felt well enough to drive other people approx 100 mi RT. 

The last time they saw me, I had a long gray braid.  Yesterday I had the punk grandma look with half-inch spikes of thinning white hair. I get into the drivers seat and say good morning to six or seven people.  You cut your hair, someone said.  Yes I did, I replied.  And said no more...'nuf said I thought, and started the van. 

It will become apparent soon enough.  I am going to work without camouflage.  If I have to go bald, so be it, this too shall pass and remember I'm shedding sins as I shed hairs, right?  So I hold up my head by the grace of God, and I hold up my spirit by the gift of Jesus Christ.  

Happy Easter everyone!  Anyone ever go to a sunrise service?  I did years ago at Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado.  Very beautiful and very moving!

You're in my prayers sisters and here are some {{hugs}} if anyone needs one today.

Hi Hollyann, my DS who lives with me and was raised in the church has also turned away.  It's not easy living in the same household with those that don't believe.  He challenges me at times but I refuse to rise to the bait.  I just live my life for the Lord and he sees the Holy Spirit that lives within.  I pray for him to return but it have left it on the altar and it is between him and God.

Have you thought about visiting other churches?  We had visitors to our church not long ago from the Roswell Assembly of God church.  Don't know if that is anywhere near you but they spoke highly of their church.  I think they have a website you can check out if you are interested.

Groundhog, I went to a sunrise service several years ago.  It was on a mountaintop and I only remember that it was so cold you couldn't think of anything else except when was it going to be over so we could get back in our cars and warm up.  I don't think they ever did it again.

Everyone have a wonderful Easter.

Good morning everyone!  Only my aunt and sister are still close to our church.  For other reasons the rest are not.  When you turn away from God who do you turn to for comfort?

Arnie ... also true story, one of my cats when I sang would come over and bite my arm - very gently - as if to say shutupm you're hurting my ears.  I swear - everytime I sang!

Lucy ... good evening.  I truly hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Groundhog ... I LOVE what your grandfather said and he's so right!  I now have a new outlook on my voice.

To Jo, Laurie, Patoo, and everyone whose name escapes my befuddled brain, Happy Easter.

JO, thanks for those words.  Although I know they are true and speak them myself, it is hard sometimes.  Your words brought tears because I'm the only one in my family.  True some others profess to be believers but some of the things they say and do, and the choices they make, attest to the fact that they just don't know.  I will continue to pray for them all.

kmccraw423  Don't know about the bunnies but This is what I had heard about the eggs.

The egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth in celebrations of spring and was adopted by early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus.

There is quite an interesting article on Wikipedia     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_egg

Every day I try to remember to say thank you to God for all he does and gives in my life!Especially the gift of Jesus!
