I don't write much about having fibromyalgia. At least, I hope I don't. I try to think,"it is a fact of life"....but lately...one of the symptoms ----side effects for me, has been the fatigue. Do you remember that first trimester of pregnancy?...or when you are recovering from a *bug*...and you WANT to do things, but you are just so pooped out...so tired...like the *spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak*....well that is what fatigue is for me. During revival the speaker talked and preached on THANKFULNESS....I truly am trying to THANK the Lord for this....WHY ? WELLLLLLLL.......glad you asked...this is the scripture he shared: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. ....what does EVERY THING mean ?....well that is easy...... EVERY THING....I am trying to thank GOD in just more than words...and trying to accept that which I can't change. Of course I work at doing *my part*...I am now off of SUGAR, white stuff...ie: breads, white rice.....but so often right now, I am just frustrated...my mind is tired, my body is tired, I do projects in my home in spurts--to include hitting one yard sale,instead of many.....grocery shopping is now shared with my beloved husband....when I have those great DAYS...yes...oh yes...I overdo....and it catches up with me...but it just feels so good to have those days...and I try so hard not to feel sorry for myself....so many people have it much worse....people I know personally......I am just wanting to learn to *BLOOM WHERE I AM PLANTED*....and for some time now, I have been planted in FATIGUE-LAND....and I want to be thankful, because for me, that would be, being obedient to God's WORD. This is a process, isn't it?...hope this ramble, makes sense?~~deby

I just wanted to know more about this family. Like many others,they intrigue me and I find them inspiring.
I really enjoyed this book. It has recipes for meals, and even their laundry detergent that they make.
It has bits from some of the children.
I enjoyed reading about Michelle and Jim's Bob courtship and their early years of marriage.
I think you will enjoy this book.
My friend, Susan, who is a missionary wife to Canada, has a CBD account..this book is on her sidebar. Please go visit Susan to order. Every little bit helps when you are a missionary. I asked her permission to do this. Her blog is "By Grace"

God is in control...there are no
surprises with HIM......
I am already tired of the pandemic *hype*
Every year over 12,000 people die from drunk drivers, where is the outrage over that.
Every year approx. 30,000 die from the REGULAR seasonal influenza?
My husband just left for work, he drives on a Freeway that has numerous accidents...
How about accidental food poisoning?.... you can find statistics on anything, regarding how people die.
We are born, we die....
I think the better question is this? Where are you going, should you die today?
I think this is a great opportunity for evangelism. People are scared. I truly believe the Lord knows the day, the hour,the minute and the second, HE will call me home. All the hand sanitizer in the world will not change that. We need to keep this in perspective. I think our media is using fear tactics....
Is my head in the sand ? No...I am a realist. I am deepening my pantry, as if there were to be a natural emergency--or so I can bless someone else....I wash my hands, I do what I can. IF I die from this, well.....so be it...but you know, today the RAPTURE could happen and you and I both have friends and family that would be left behind.....I am just saying don't get sidetracked, here.
We can use this as a time to offer HOPE in our Saviour, to tell others how to get saved, to get on our knees and pray for our country, to spend time in the WORD.
Just my thoughts this Friday morning. I am not a authority, I do not have the answers, these things have happended before.
You were born , you will die,
but IF you are the Lord's you really don't die,
you pass on,
you graduate to Heaven and live eternally.
Now where you go after death, well, that is YOUR decision.
Write me if you want to know more.
said with love and concern for all those who read my blog.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
