    Just an update and give God the glory and credit;

    DH started his new job yesterday morning. He got the final call on Tuesday at 7:10 AM, and told to show up bright and early yesterday. They brought him onboard as *soon* as the background check cleared…wanted him big time they did!..to bring him in mid-week and mid-pay period.

    I’m walking on air and smiling a lot. πŸ™‚ I’ve shared God’s grace and blessings with sooo many for the last three days.

    This is the second miracle God has wrought for me this year. Six months ago my dentist accidentally discovered a tumor in my jawbone (front, right, top) that had already eaten through to the gums. He couldn’t believe I’d had *NO* pain and no symptoms and said that had taken a *long* time to develop and said it was extremely urgent to get it fixed as it could get into my bloodstream, go to my brain and kill me. He says there’s a major vein right by that area that goes straight to the brain.

    It required extensive oral surgery (thankfully one of the *top* oral surgeons is located here…he’s on the board of directors for his profession) but because he’s the best, it’s difficult to get an appointment. Again, God moved a mountain for me and I was able to get in to see him pretty quick.

    DH and I were prepared ahead of time for this being malignant, as it had all the markers for being such. It also required cadaver bone grafting, which carried the risk of rejection.

    Long story a tad shorter, the tumor was *NOT NOT NOT* malignant and the cadaver bone was not rejected. Thanks God!

    My sister is on facebook and had posted, asking for prayer, which upset me at first since I’m extremely private and just by saying “her sister” there were dozens who knew who she was talking about and I started getting calls, people concerned. She offered to remove the post but I conceded, saying while I hated so many people knowing, I welcomed every prayer I could get….it worked!

    I have no idea what I’ve done to deserve so much of God’s blessings and grace lately, but I sure pray I can continue to do it! πŸ™‚

      None of us deserve either His blessing or His grace πŸ˜‰ The fact that He gives them both in response to our asking and to our need sometimes (when we don’t think to ask) are a commentary on what He is like. “What He is like” is pretty amazing. I’m glad you have these good news things happening!

    I want to give a “closing update” on the situation re my 9-years-older-than-me sis who had been slipping into increasing dementia and anger over recent years. She was placed, by court order, in a residential facility about 3 months ago. Her condition has been diagnosed/identified as a fairly complete psychotic break, manifesting dementia and moderate Alzheimers. Since her admission to that facility, with good nutrition and proper medication, her day to day experience of daily life has been astounding in the changes made. She had become totally isolated and angry over the past 15 years or so, and became pretty well impossible for anyone at all to deal with. Finally no one in the immediate or extended family was even allowed contact with her (her choice). She would not receive gifts, phone calls or visits. So the deterioration brought it to this. Now–we’re talking bingo, enjoying music brought into the facility, playing catch with the great big “elder dementia” beach balls outside, visiting with others daily at the dining table. She still thinks she’s in her condo at Flathead Lake in western MT–just understands (according to her) that the manager of the home not only found a way to drain the lake, so now there’s green grass outside her windows…but he also has brought in all these people to wait on her hand and foot. I told DH yesterday it is the oddest feeling: I am consciously grateful and relieved that she is under this highly restricted environment. Very, very bittersweet. I knew her in her best years, so even though we saw this coming some time back, the jolting end of the downward slide is just that–jolting. But we are also so terribly grateful for the wonderful ways that God’s grace went ahead, especially for the sake of my niece who has been managing all of this the best she could. The final court hearing yesterday permanently giving her guardianship over her mother, only took 45 seconds! Deo Gratias! (Sorry that’s so long–it’s still the short version!) πŸ˜‰

    http://mailboxesandoldbarns.com/2011/03/25/the-window-at-the-landing/ This essay I wrote some time back describes my use of The Window at the Landing in our Montana farm house when I would be sent up there to watch for her arrival when she and her husband would drive in, all the way from California, on a Tuesday afternoon. Big doings. Very big doings. She’s safe now, having much better days–color me grateful.

    I love this beautiful little corner of the web. Been lurking for a time… There is peace here… May God bless you all…

    I’ve been praying a long time for my beautiful friend, Heather. But I could use some help — so could she. She is a single mom who has had her children taken from her by Child Protective Services (who are the subject of a judicial review of their performance).

    One of the last times I saw her and her children together, her oldest boy was very sad. When she asked him what was wrong, he started to cry and said “I’m sorry Mom, but Dad says you’re just going to have to die!” And all Heather did was hold him and tell him that she loved him and things would be ok.

    Through the actions of an utterly corrupt lawyer, the lies of Heather’s ex-husband and his parents, and the hopelessly inept government agency tasked with looking after children’s welfare in our backwards little corner of the world, Heather’s three boys are now living with her ex and his mother.

    Heather is out of money, out of energy, and some days — out of hope. Still, she is the strongest person I have ever met. I ask your prayers for all involved — and me too, please, as I know all too well how weak my own faith is.

    Hello and Happy Independence Day to all the great folks here at the Tree-House. I know I am real new here, but I have a prayer request of my own. I just got home from the hospital from a heart-attack Saturday afternoon. My soon to be landlord came to make some needed repairs and we had been going back and forth for four months over him not making these much needed repairs. It took me telling him I would call code enforcement to do these repairs. Well he and his brother were drinking all afternoon, and I went out to see how far they were and harsh words went to a physical confutation of two on one. At this time my wife came out and fired a round at them and held them at gun point till paramedics and the sheriff arrived. By the time the paramedics came I was non responsive. Well the Lord let me stay here for some reason and the paramedics helped too I suppose.
    I just ask that myself and wife are kept in the great folks here’s prayers as I need them and appreciate it.
    Thank you all so much and God bless everyone. Karl and Sandra…

      Aw, Karl…I’m sorry to hear of all of that. May the Lord provide some unexpected peace for you, and strength for each day. I’m so glad your wife is so efficient and practical, and was able to stand for you until help arrived. I’m often reminded of that passage of Scripture that quotes Jesus looking out at the crowds and it says, “He was moved with compassion for them…..” (Mark 6:34) It seems like it easily eludes our hearts–that He actually does pay attention to our circumstances and needs. I pray that you and your dear wife will both have a sense of His attention, and be able to rest and continue your recovery. Keep us posted.

        • Sharon says:

          Yeah. Here it comes. They prove again and again and again that they do not value life–at any of its stages. And yet they are always the first to get on their soap boxes and start shrieking accusations toward conservatives and people of faith, about how unkind we are. God will give us grace–I know that and have experienced that; however, the things that cause us to need that grace so desperately fresh every day will not be much fun.

          What follows I do not say lightly and certainly I am not “making fun of” the Israelites. But there’s a great lesson to be learned in the Old Testament, when the Israelites were amazingly “delivered out of Egypt” by the hand of the Sovereign God–oh, my, did they struggle. They struggled with the journey out. They struggled with the conditions of “receiving grace.” They struggled with things deeply. So–I’ve thought about this much over the years due to situations in our own lives: while we experience and are confident of God’s care, deliverance and provisions of all kinds, we should not make the mistake of thinking that therefore everything will be fixed and made easy.

          I believe we’re all headed into deep waters and unless something truly remarkable happens, a good many of us will leave this life far sooner than we would have in the days when liberty was afoot in the land. Faith does not make the journey unnecessary, but it makes it possible. God, in His promises, is not yanking us around or abusing us or taking advangate of our willingness to trust. He deals with us in the midst of life as it is, not as we wish it was. It’s deeply serious business, and He will not be found wanting. (Psalm 37 helps me with the anger I feel in the face of liars….and Psalm 105 and 106 remind me deeply of the “troubles of Israel”….God was always faithful.)

          Too many words again. Sift and use what fits your heart today. God bless your hubby with faith and peace tomorrow…and you as well, as you walk with him.

  9. GZtheCourageous says:

    We all know how hard it is to change our mind when we believe that someone in our life is from God. Think of how you came to change your mind about something you believed to be God’s will, but later realized you were deceived, often too late to change things.

    To the one it matters the most, that attorney was sent by God.

    Prayer is needed for truth and objectivity to shine forth clearly and some other way to be opened. For God would not deceive those who honestly believe in Him. Pray that God will clearly show his will, because faith is hard to break in this type of situation.

    If that team is indeed God ordained, than God help us to accept the horrible outcome this seems to be leading to. This simply cannot be God’s will! I have felt this all along. And I agree with all the threads I am reading. Continue to speak out strongly on this Sundance.

    Please pray and believe strongly for clarity and revelation for our brother. Thanks for this great blog and tireless work you all do on it. It is indeed a labor of love!

      aliashubbatch, I empathize with you more than you can possibly know. People of faith who choose to stand against evil may find their own spirits rising up within in them in fear, anger or rage which becomes a further problem for them. It is no simple thing to stand against evil with our own sometimes quaking hearts. It’s certainly possible. But it is not simple.
