After a fruitful period, I got a testing period.  I'm not even sure when it started but it has been frustrating.  When this happens no matter how long it lasts, thenI know something really good is going to happen after I get a break.

I don't know if I told you I got a new computer in December.  It took me awhile to understand how to use some of the programs.  Last month after I got a little comfortable with it, it began to act up.  I kept thinking it was just my mistakes.  Finally I got a young lady who came and picked my 'puter up and took it to her to see what was wrong.  I don't have a car.

I had a Trojan virus buried deep plus a lot of adware and trackware.  She cleaned that all out and did much more for a fair price.  I know that God let that happen because of my old computer.  I dropped it and messed up my floppy drive.  My new puter didn't have a floppy disc installed so I couldn't use the floppies.

I had saved all my articles on both the hard drive and the back up drive besides the floppies.  The woman took the drives out and saved them all on a folder on the desktop!  I don't have to retype them all again.  As close as I can guess I have at least 200 items I thought I had lost.  I was told a long time ago to always keep a paper copy of everything.  Now I see why.  GOD kept my writings in His keeping!  He has everything under control even tho it seems like such a jumble.  She even got rid of the old machine for me.

She rearranged everything in a more convenient arrangement and neater than I ever did so the cords weren't showing everywhere and in my way.

I am taking all the "saved" items on the folder and saving them on a CD.  I just learned how to use them as a floppy!!!  It seems to be taking me forever but still a blessing.

A couple days ago, my printer went crazy.  I ordered a new one online and won't get it until Tuesday.  I have a lot to catch up with.


As if that wasn't enough, I was happily awaiting the birth of my 6th great grandchild.  The mother had a hard time the whole 9 months and is still in bad shape.  Her blood pressure has been out of control and still is.  A sweet little girl was born Monday, May 8th.  Yesterday she had to go to a children's hospital.  Her billy ruben dropped and she has yellow jaundice.

I am more concerned for her mother.  My son had the same jaundice.  They were going to change his blood but he came out of it on his own.  It is still a worry.  He fell asleep no matter where he was.  Once behind a parked car.

Wednesday last week I went to my eye doctor for a check up.  There was blood in my right eye.  I go back in 2 weeks.  He said that it seems like a weak blood vessel.
And will clear up itself.  If not, I have to see a retina doctor.  I also have a hole in both the macular and retina.  MY left eye is perfect.  Thank God for that.

A week before that I played bean bag.  I couldn't get near the hole in the box.  So I threw harder------- I suffered for that effort for about 8 days.  I thought that all kinds of things was wrong with my arm and shoulder blade.  It healed up with lots of bengay and advil.  I usually don't take pills but just for a short period.

I have to retract something I wrote in the article about the healing dream I had.
I said God was healing me in all areas and He can do the same for everyone.  I told this without thinking to someone who has apnea and can hardly breathe besides arthritis.  I was insensitive to the fact that someone always in great pain would appreciate the fact that I was pretty healthy.

God let me know that He did mean the dream for me and He can heal anyone but He doesn't always choose to. 
Just listening to a few people who have been in terrible pain for years, it seems this has brought them closer to God.  Since Jesus suffered so much for us, why can't we suffer, too?  I never really got much pain so I can't understand what pain really is.  I act like a big baby when I get just minor aches and pains. 

God did heal me of some minor physical problems but most of my healing was emotional, mental and spiritual.  To me those were more important than anything physical.  I don't know but what I may have to suffer physically as I get older.  But pain doesn't care who it hits---young or old.

It's getting late and I'm getting tired.  When I become more alert I will start to put more Bible studies on this site.  I don't remember what I have posted here.  I have a record of everything somewhere So I don't send repeats.

Sorry this has been so long.    God did bless me in the middle of all the turmoil.  With a brand new little girl angel.  He led me to the right one to fix my computer!  He saved my items for me.  and so on.  God is so good to me and I don't deserve it.  He loves me unconditionally.  Praise the Lord.

Congratulations on your new g-baby, I will be praying for her.

I myself now keep all my studies on a separite hard drive. It is only 250Mbs but it works for my studies. I can lose everything else and still have those. I also keep printouts of my studies now (it's safer that way.) 

If you click -->HERE<-- this will show you your posts, you have made.

Hi livingbyfaith, I have missed you, I notice you have a new grandbaby,  Cheesy  Aren't they just wonderful? I have a bunch of them, my youngest one is 4 and a half months old.

I'm sorry you have been having computer problems, I think we'sve all had our share.

Your sister in Christ,

Hi livingbyfaith,

I will be keeping the mother and baby in my prayers as well as you. One of my granddaughters had a problem with jaundice so I know of your concern. Praise God, prayer and a billy-ruben blanket cleared hers up rather quickly.

Dear Sister in Christ, it will by my joy to pray for you and your entire family. Your writing is a blessing to many, and I'm one of them.

I think it's a fact that all sweet Christians trying to serve the LORD suffer trials and testing from time to time. First, the devil doesn't like what you're doing for the LORD, and the devil will try to stop you. In reading everything you have posted here, I think you are a very strong Christian woman walking with the LORD, and the devil will be wasting his time in trying to stop you.

Love In Christ,

Psalms 37:39-40 NASB  But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; He is their strength in time of trouble. The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in Him.

You and all you mentioned will be in my prayers.
I want you to know that I originally joined CU because I wanted to learn how to pray for others.  The Lord was doing wonderful things in my life, but I also felt a lot of prayers were focused on myself.  I wanted to learn to pray for others, not only those in struggles, but those who were rejoicing.  It is very true and this much I have learned.  We are all truly children of God, which makes us one big family.  Know that you have the prayers and support of your brothers and sisters in Christ (the extended family as I now call it), and this board is living proof!
Blessings and congrats with the new addition to the family!
