God Is Most Definately Still In the Miracle Making Business!!

Oh yes HE IS!  The results I've been waiting for are in, and I DO NOT HAVE THIS DISEASE!  According to this round of lab work, everything is negative.  How could that be when only one week prior the news was definitely positive for this disease??  My doctor had no answer as to what happened...


One more blood draw was taken and sent to the lab.  My doctor told me "Don't call me, I'll call you if I need to, relax and forget this all happened."

Rejoicing and relaxing,

This Mandisa song has been my comfort early this morning as I cannot sleep and wonder if today will be the day the test results arrive from the lab.

You're an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You're not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it's hopeless
That's when He reminds You
That you're an overcomer
You're an overcomer

Everybody's been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Ooh, you're not alone
Just take a breath, don't forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know

 The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
He's living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There's nothing He can't do

For there is NOTHING my GOD cannot do!

Hanging on to  HIS promises,

Waiting is so hard!  Especially if you are waiting to hear about results of lab work.  I had been told results should be in on Friday-yesterday.  Well they were not.  The nurse called the lab and they are still conducting the tests.  So I will go through the weekend not knowing anything about the lab work.  One thing I do know is this:


 I pray I handle this setback with grace and peace in my soul, all while I remember to keep my eyes on HIM.

It may appear I have a great big problem, but I have news for that problem, I HAVE A GREAT BIG GOD!

Resting in Jesus,

Ringing In The New Year

I'm ringing in the New Year with two very special people, two of my most favorite people in the world, they mean the world to me...

 My little Cowboy
and my Honey~Girl.
We've just had dinner and are now getting comfy in our jammies and are going to pop in a Disn@y movie.  What better way to spend New Year's Eve?
2013 was a hard year.  February 2013 found us fighting for daddy's life.  He was diagnosed with lung cancer.  The prognosis didn't sound so bad.  Heck if you had to have cancer the prognosis of living a fairly normal life with a fairly normal life span due to the slow growing cancer didn't sound all that bad.  Unfortunately, that "normal life span" lasted a total of three weeks.  Yes, three weeks after presenting to the oncologist Daddy was dancing with Jesus.
It was a fierce three weeks. I've never been prouder of my Daddy. Daddy always taught us to never, ever give up.  Always do our best, that is all that mattered.  Giving it your all.  A winner NEVER quits and a quitter NEVER wins.  Daddy lived this advice he gave his children and grandchildren to his very last breath.
There is something else Daddy taught us all, which he lived to his very last breath...Over and over as different doctors came to talk to Daddy in his hospital room, giving him the grim prognosis of there was nothing more they could for him, it was all in the hands of "the Man upstairs" my Fighter~Man superhero of a Daddy looked each and every one of those medical professionals in the eye and professed "I HAVE A GREAT BIG GOD AND I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES."
 Daddy spent the last 11 days of his life in the hospital.  One of those days he went thru three very aggressive rounds of chemo therapy to try to arrest the spread of the cancer.  Daddy came thru the treatment that day like a heavy weight champion of the didn't even phase him.  His faith and attitude were incredible till his very last breath.
Daddy went from my arms to Jesus' arms on February 18, 2013.  I feel so privileged to have been able to hold Daddy in my arms until he walked thru the gates of heaven.
There is something else Daddy taught us all, it was his mantra so to speak and it goes like this
Not only did we lose Big Daddy in February 2013, September 2013 was just as devastating to us as a family.  Our little grandson, Liam Thomas, was due to be born November 23, 2013.  Liam arrived September 18, 2013.  Our little man survived almost two hours before leaving us to dance with Jesus.
Why?  Why?  Why?
We may never know the answer to that question.  We do know our hearts are heavy as we head into 2014.  Christmas was hard without Liam and Daddy.  It was hard to be jolly and get into the spirit of the season with so much pain in our hearts.
I am so thankful for Jesus.  Knowing Daddy and Liam celebrated Jesus' birthday with Him, the King of Kings, helped to ease my pain.
How I miss my two special guys.  But if they had to be someplace other than here on earth with me, what better place to be than walking the streets of gold, praising and rejoicing with Jesus himself?
May 2014 be filled with family, love, peace, joy, and Jesus.
Love you no matter what,

Happy Birthday Jesus From Sunny So. California!!!

We are truly blessed to have our grandbabies here on the farm with us this Thanksgiving.  They have been with us since Sunday night and this is their last full day with us.  They'll be flying back to California tomorrow afternoon.  I am so thankful to my son and daughter~in~love for allowing us this time with them.  It is so hard to live on the other side of the country from them.

From Freedom Hollow Farm, Williamsport, TN, HAPPY BLESSED THANKSGIVING.

Blessings to all who stop by,
