How wonderful to have such a loving Lord that He has made it very easy for us to communicate with Him. My family has felt your prayers and things have been getting better.
Mom was given a new medicine which now allows her to eat food instead of just liquids, and gives her more energy than she has had in years. She is now stronger than I am!
My mentally ill brother has been very calm and has not been constantly swearing and complaining and getting angry if we say something positive or something to try to cheer him up. It has changed the whole spirit of our home.
My pneumonia is getting better, and I think my other conditions have been improving also!
I have gotten my sense of humor back and that has been like a ray of sunshine. That is a true gift only from God. I have been led to some websites and some people who have been through what I am going through, who have taught me GIGANTIC, life changing lessons. This has helped answer my prayer for the Lord to help change my mind, spirit and body. I am so very thankful for all my blessings and "luxuries" that even the poorest people in N. America have. Yes I have a lot of overwhelming stresses and pain, so I felt overwhelmed, but then felt guilty for feeling overwhelmed! I was really being cruel to myself for having any weak or negative thoughts. Then I remembered that this is not a personality flaw, this has natural causes in 2 ways. 1) When you are overwhelmed, you have a hard time thinking clearly and knowing how to make things better, and 2) these negative thoughts can be caused by different chemical illnesses in the body and the brain. When its in the brain, it's called chemical or clinical depression and there are some medicines that help some people, but not everyone can take them. There are other illnesses that cause depression because of the changes in chemicals, strength, pain, worn nerves, unbalanced hormones and metabolism and other physical problems. So depression and complaining is not always just a personality flaw, but I will continue to work on that flaw. Depression caused by illnesses can make a person see things negatively even when there is nothing wrong in their life.
There is no further news my husband coming here, but I HAVE been given strength, patience, comfort, and guidance about the situation. All things happen for a reason. I am going to start writing to Canadian gov't officials to try to get my husband home. I will accept whatever the Lord decides to do in this matter, but of course if His choice is that we don't get together, it will be heartbreaking.
There is power in prayer, and strength in numbers of people praying for you...SO THANK YOU ALL, for helping make my life a little better. I still need to find physical help for daily life, but the Lord will help somehow in that area too.
THIS IS THE JOY OF BEING A CHRISTIAN---THAT WE KNOW THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD THINGS GET, WE ARE NOT ALONE, THAT WE CAN GET STRENGTH, COMFORT, AND HELP TO SOLVE ALL PROBLEMS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FATHER, GOD, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
May you all be blessed much more than you have blessed my life,
