A true blessing sister, like a little child running in a field of flowers, inhaling, enjoying and praising God the creator, as Father for His creation...
The Worlds were framed by His Word - He is before all things, and by him all things consist...
Col 1:17
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Heb 11:3
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
All consist within it
God Bless you sister
And yes, Praise God-
To Him be the glory,

Chira, I am also placing this reply on the "What's Up September" blog Trish has started.

Hi Darlene, thank you so much for your prayers and God bless that little girl. Elena, I tried to find you on Facebook, I'll try again--would love to chat that way. :) God bless you both, hugs, Mary

---Mary on 9/4/12///---Standing with you ...Amen.

2 Cor 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds,)

1 Pet 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Jm 5:14-15
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up, and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Mary I hope you are doing better every day. Thank you for all your prayers. Please know you have continued to be in mine. Trish thank you for the prayers. I am so sorry to hear about you being hit,you're always in my prayers. I just want you and all who prayed to know Ava,burned child,has been touched by God. Her feet are doing much better and they don't think she will lose them now. They took her off life support so thats better too. She is still getting oxygen and has a feeding tube but I am confident in God that He in His tender mercy will continue to heal her. The Grandmother went home,and uncle who rescued her was treated and released at the time. Thank you all who prayed for them and me.God Bless

Elena I'm so glad to see you back,I've been worried about you. You have been in my prayers,may God continue to touch you with his mighty love and healing power. Trish my computer has been down again. I am having slow recovery and still quite some pain from oral surgery. I hope you are doing better you are in my prayers.
---Darlene_1 on 9/4/12

Hi Elena,
I am glad you are back. Sorry people are so difficult to be around. I've been told, and firmly believe, that the Christian army is the only one that shoots its own wounded. It has happened to me more than once.

Keeping you in my prayers.
---Trish on 9/4/12

Hi Elena, sooo glad to see you back honey! :) I'm just sorry people have been negative to you, that's terrible! But glad your bc treatment seems to be working, praise God for that! :) I saw a mug yesterday that said "Cancer touched my breast so I kicked it's butt", love it! God bless, hugs, Mary
---Mary on 9/4/12

Elena, keep holding on to your faith. Never waver no matter what anyone says. They only give their opinions when in fact they have no clue what a person is going through. Only you know what you are going through. Stay focus only on that, and be lifted up by all those who love you, and let me say there is many of us. You are always in my prayers even if I do not see you on the blogs, and I know many others are also worrying about you. Keep us in touch whenever you can. Love you very much, peace and blessings I leave you.

Praise God for success in treatments! May He continue to bless.
"church" communities are sometimes difficult, yes, stay focused on the Lord, and you wont reap discontent, as Paul, learned to be content in all things, so In Christ, can we also.
May God bless you with those who encourage you in the Truth.
Yes, thank God, in all things

I'd appreciate prayer for my back. I was beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Well, at least till Thursday night. I was rear ended while sitting at a red light two blocks from home. My back has been tender, and tense since then. Poor kid that hit me was more upset than I was. 22 years old, and his first accident.
---TrishI on 9/1/12

Hi Darlene,
I sure hope your mouth heals fast, so you have less pain. I know how that hurts. If you want any soft food ideas, let me know. I was on a liquid diet for three weeks, and a soft food diet for two, so I have plenty of ideas.

It's so sad that this little child is suffering so much, and that they may have to amputate her feet. It's heartbreaking.

My foot wasn't bothering me over the weekend, but yesterday it flared back up. The boot I have to wear is very hot right now, as it's all the way to my knee. I hope it heals fast.

Praying always.
---Trish on 8/28/12

God bless you Darlene, praying you heal soon and praying for that poor little girl--soooo sad!!
---Mary on 8/28/12

Doctors had Ava,three year old burned granddaughter of our friend,on blood pressure medicine. It kept the flow of blood from going to the feet and now they may have to amputate her feet. Won't know until later. Please pray for her,she has had it very rough. I hope and pray she doesn't have to have them amputated. Trish I am still in a lot of pain in my mouth,but I am better than yesterday,still must stay on soft things and liquids,thanks for the prayers,I'm not coughing as much. How are you I am glad your foot is better? Take care of yourself,I'm praying for you.

Darlene, you poor thing. You must be in a world of pain. I hope you are going to see your doctor about your lungs. When I had my pulmonary embolism I also had pneumonia. It was awful. I'm certainly praying.

My foot seems to be better. My procedure on my back site still hurts. Thanks for asking.

---Trish on 8/27/12

Please pray for me as I have an infection in my lower respiratory system. I'm coughing some and of course with my sore mouth from getting my teeth out it is really hurting. Trish I hope things are going well for you. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 8/26/12

Trish yes there's hope,the child was doing fairly well until she had surgery and got the infection. No its not a medically induced coma. It is the grandpa who has been asking for prayer,its hard to see her that way I'm sure. To me at three they are still our babies. Thanks for the prayers for her and me. I've got the pain killers and taking them regularly.
---Darlene_1 on 8/25/12

Darlene, is there any hope for that precious child surviving the horrible burns, or was she put in a medically induced coma? Infections are the most common danger with burn victims. I can't imagine the horror for the survivors. My grandson, Lincoln, just turned 3 years old, and I know that I would be heartbroken if anything happened to him, or any of my kids or grandkids.

Darlene, it's totally normal not to experience a lot of pain the first 24-48 hours after surgery with anesthesia. It usually takes that long for the anesthesia to leave the body. Once it is gone you will feel the pain, unless you are prescribed pain killers.
---Trish on 8/25/12

Trish the child is burned on face,arms,legs and back. She had some surgery and now has an infection and is on lifesupport. I hope all went well for you,been praying for you. My pain got worse this morning but thats not unusual that a 2nd or 3rd day is worse,then gets better from there on. Thank you so much. I am praising God too for keeping me from hurting so bad right after surgery and letting me sleep well the last two nights. God is always on duty.
---Darlene_1 on 8/24/12

Darlene, I'm praising the Lord for you not having too much pain from the extractions. I'm still praying for that child. Not sure what to pray for, so I'm praying for God's will, and that no matter what, He be glorified.

I'd appreciate prayer on Friday morning. I'm having a procedure done on my back to relieve a lot of the pain I get in my lower back. If it works, I could be pain free for six months to two years. I had it done a year ago, and it lasted almost a full year.

I also need to find out the results of an MRI done on my neck. I'm hopeful it will explain the shoulder pain I have had since I fell in December. That fall has caused me misery ever since it happened. First my leg surgery. Then my broken nose surgery.
---Trish on 8/23/12

All went well with Oral Surgery. Lot of pain but I am better this morning. Thanks for your prayers. I'm still having pain but not like at first. I can do all things trough Jesus Christ who strengthens me. God bless

Please pray for three year old little girl who was burned in a house explosion. She had surgery and developed an infection and is now on life support. She has burns on face,back,arms and legs completly wrapped in bandages where she was burned. The older man in house when it happened is still in intensive care,the grandmother and uncle have both been released from hospital.
---Darlene_1 on 8/23/12

Praise the Lord for your niece, Darlene. That is wonderful. Still praying for the precious child.

My foot has good days and bad days. I'm grateful for the volunteer work I've been doing. It keeps me busy, especially the drug/alcohol agency and the campaign work I'm doing for the Congressional candidate. It keeps me distracted so I don't notice the foot.
---Trish on 8/23/12

Paise God,My niece's kidneys are 100% working,they took the foley out of bladder and she may get to go home.This is the woman who called home all of her children and grandchildren because doctors thought she was dying. Tomorrow is tooth pulling day. I don't deal well with going to the dentist. The little girl,Ava,with the burns is still serious and has developed an infection and taken a turn for the worse. Please pray,only 3.
---Darlene_1 on 8/21/12

Trish sorry to hear it is broken will be praying for you in all areas of need. Please pray for me ,Wednesday morning 8,30 Central Daylight Time I will be getting put to sleep and 16 teeth taken out,my bones all polished down to get ready for false teeth. Going to a regular dentist is a trauma for me so I am a little concerned about this. When he is through he will give me a shot in the IV stronger than morphine to help me get home on and get through the first few hours. God Bless all who pray,we really need each other and please know I'm praying for you too.

Hi everyone. Well, it turns out the x-ray was inconclusive, and my foot is actually broken. So, I am wearing a big, ole boot, and resting it as much as possible.

Thanks for everyone's prayers. On Friday, I will be having a procedure on my back to ease the pain I've been experiencing. This past Saturday, I had an MRI done to see what the cause of my chronic shoulder pain could be.

God is good, all the time.
---Trish on 8/20/12

Thank you for any prayers for my request yesterday about my foot. I was able to get it x-rayed this morning, and it is not broken. I plan to call my primary doc to see if I can get something for the pain, because Tylenol is not working. I went down to my basement and got the special boot I wore when the foot was broken. I also grabbed my crutches, just in case I need them later.

God has been blessing me with more energy, as well as opportunities to do volunteer work. I am grateful whenever I can go out and use my talents and energy for others.
---Trish on 8/16/12

Hi Darlene, thanking God with you on behalf of your niece. :) I'm so glad she came through. I hope to see her cancer healed too, cancer sucks! God bless you both, hugs, Mary
---Mary on 8/16/12

Thanks to all who prayed for my niece. She came through the surgery just fine although they only put stints in to drain the kidneys.

I appreciate the prayer for my appointment with the pain specialist. He ordered another MRI, and we scheduled a procedure for another part of my back that hurts.

In the meantime, I am also dealing with foot pain similar to when I broke it several years ago. It was a stress fracture then. The soonest I can get to see my podiatrist isn't till the 23rd. I'm hoping my primary doctor will order an x-ray for me to get done on the 16th.

Tweety-bird: Congratulations on passing your test. I'll be praying for you as you prepare for your studies. I considered studying nursing, but really had trouble with Chemistry. So, I changed my major at the community college. I am sure you will do exceedingly well.

God bless.
---Trish on 8/16/12

I passed my pre-algebra mastery test, and I am on my way to taking anatomy and physiology in the fall, and also human growth and development. I'm taking them for prerequisites for an RN program. I'm going out of town, this weekend before classes start this next week. Go to church down there and hopefully to visit friends. And leave my cats with someone.
