Long Time No Read

Hello blog world! Popping in for a quick hello. My mom has had critical health issues and I have been spending each and every day with her at the hospital. We thought for sure this was it for her. Truly there was not much hope and it was last Friday that I cried my eyes out so hard that the next morning they were so puffed up and swollen it looked like my husband had beat the poo out of me. If the cops had shown up at our home for any random reason surely they would have taken Mike away for spousal abuse ha ha. Anyhoo, the very next day their pastor came and prayed over mom. Now, I have had my pastor there too and I know that my church was praying during all services for mom and many friends and family were praying but it all came to a peak when their pastor showed up. Pastor Ryan prayed over mom and joked with her and he proclaimed many things loudly and boldly before he prayed. I remember sitting in my chair and thinking I have never seen someone who actually believed wholeheartedly what they were about to pray would happen. He displayed some major faith.

Well, dad said he could feel the holy spirit when pastor prayed. I'll be honest..... I didn't feel a thing. I have had stinky attitude a little bit about all this. My mom is the greatest person in the world and I am sick of her having to suffer...... enough of that. So, we went about our day still hoping for the best but the prognosis was pretty much death for her. She was actually better when we left that evening and when I walked in the very next morning do you know what?

Mom was fully alert which hadn't happened for over a week, had the ability to speak clearly and normally which hadn't happened in over a week, was in her right mind which hadn't happened in over a week, had all normal vitals, had all her color back and looked like there wasn't a thing wrong with her, she wanted to eat and ate well which she hadn't been eating more than 3 teaspoons per meal before. Let's say shall we that a miracle was performed? Mom is coming home this week. I was sure she was never going to leave the hospital in any way other than the funeral car. Miracles are crazy cool people.

I do want to say that mom has major health issues. Dad and I go through this stuff all the time and this time was different. It was the worst and her heart had to be shocked back 3 times the previous Saturday. Lots of screaming...... it is painful for a defibrillator to go off. She was screaming, I was screaming, Dad was screaming for Jesus to come. The freaking nurse was crying. Do you ever see a nurse cry? UM, NO. It was that bad. God healed her. Amazing. Just amazing.

So, I haven't had time to blog and I have had a stinky attitude. I'll be honest, I have prayed for mom but hardly at all in 2 weeks. I honestly believe there is some spiritual warfare going on in the ole mind and if anyone has the inclination I would love some prayer. Still losing weight too. Got me some shin splints and boy do they hurt. I need new running shoes. I don't suppose God would just drop some great running shoes out of the sky? No, I didn't think so either. Well, Kat and Danielle, if you read this I have been meaning to email you both but I haven't been home in what feels like forever...... so can I just say "hey" to you both and I am thinking of you. Tasha, Lord have mercy I have been meaning to email you since the first of Jan. to see how your family Christmas went. I am a stinky friend sometimes.....but I think you know how absent minded I am lol. Love y'all.

Oh, Jenny! I am so so so sorry for your suffering and the suffering of your family. We have Bible study tomorrow and we will lift you up in prayer. It sounds so awful and I can see how it would be hard to pray. I feel for you in earnest. I can't imagine what it must be like to see your beloved mother suffering so much. I understand if you thought it best for her to go to be with Jesus as the pain would end. At times like that, it's like the Holy Spirit must intercede for us for we don't know what to pray. You have been through so much. You are incredible! God is with you in a special way and it's my hope He will carry you when you can't walk. So much pain. So much pain. May He just comfort you with his love and presence. Call anytime. I love you. Tasha

I'm sorry I've been a bit out of the picture lately! Still trying to find answers but praising God right along with you for healing your Mom.

Isn't He amazing what He can do and when it's time? Gotta love our Lord!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
