A large organization by the name of Rest Ministries has chosen to reprint my post called "Self Consciousness and Other Thieves of Peace". Rest Ministries has about 600 websites and webpages, and is the instituter of Invisible Illness Week, which is going on now. I was tickled that they thought something I wrote was up to their quality. Lisa Copen is the President of Rest Ministries. To see the reprint, go to: http://ow.ly/oQ0l.

One good thing is that it has given me time to do the very long list of things that need doing, when I can. I can only do 1-2 of these tasks a day, then my strength is gone..but lately I am pushing myself to do more because I know my energy will have to be increased just to be with another person 24 hours a day, so I'd better get used to it. I've tried to hire help, with no luck. Will keep trying.
The Canadian government has so few people working for it, that it seems EVERY STEP is painfully, cruelly slow!
I just know beyond any doubt that there is a purpose for us to be together, and he is a VERY patient man, so we will deal with all things with God's help. Wow, what a whopper of a task I have taken on with no strength. I guess in due time it will be a testimony of the strength the Lord gives to those who have none of their own.
The Taliban are still in his city, there are still bombs and killings and things that I dare not mention here because I think no human ears or eyes should have to be exposed to such ugliness, still curfews where they have to stay inside for days, still hearing machine guns and bombs as we work online on webcam...still worrying about his life, but deep down I know he HAS been protected and will continue to be protected. I am amazed how stable he stays and how well he keeps working despite his week of loss.
Well, back to work. I am sure the Lord will help me get most of my jobs done. I am leaving a lot for when he gets here, so he can feel like he is helping to make this HIS home as well, and can feel useful.
Thanks for your patience with me when I have none. lol.
Your friend, Sheila

I am still a bit numb and deep in thought from it all. I couldn't even think of what kind of picture to put with this post until hours after when I found one on another website. I can't even write anything profound about it yet until I ingest it all. So here are just the facts.
Monday- My husband's dearest uncle is killed by a suicide bomber. (He was part of the security forces on the border of Pakistan/Afghanistan.)

Many years ago, I created the acronym BUSY-Being Under Satan's Yoke. I told many of it and wrote about it online. Now someone has written a marvelous explanation of how and why Satan is keeping us too busy. I wish I knew the author's name! I really love this one!
