~Our Thanksgiving~

I tried to take a few videos, but I was shaky and my finger kept slipping off the button. But I was able to get 2 very short ones.

That is my mom and my younger sister.

The things that I actually made myself were the candied yams and the dressing. The rest I had help with. Even with making the devield eggs. Not much was made this year because I so didn't feel up to it. I do have the pictures though, to share.

It was my moms first time seeing my legs. My arm is getting better by the way it looks, but does still hurt. I haven't look today to see if I have any more new ones. I guess it's because I just don't want to know! I'm tired. I've had enough now. I went to bed last night at 9:30 and woke up around 10:00! I don't understand why I've been sleeping so much lately. I like it! :o) But I know it's not normal.
I hope you've enjoyed wacthing and looking at my pictures and videos. :o) No one else came. My kids were not here! :o( That hurts. I hope you and your family had a great day yesterday!

oh geez, after all that excitement a good sleep is the best remedy. Glad to hear your arm feels better!!  If I can't sleep well for a few nights, then I DO sleep very well afterwards.  Stress is the culprit:)

Thanks for sharing your Thanksgiving pictures, nice your Mom and family were able to all be with you to share this blessed day. Glad the arm is a little better dear.  Tired, that's normal reaction when you're under a lot of stress Lisa, your body is saying you need to rest up and take care of yourself.  Arlene (AJ)

I noticed you have a few Bible verses on your journal so I'm thinking you might be a Christian. Did you know that it's not God's Will for you to suffer? Did you know that He isn't making you sick and you can do something to change your situation?

I know when you're in the middle of the battle it can be hard to fight. Unfortunately, Jesus didn't say that we wouldn't have battles. However, He did say that He overcame them for us. When He died on the cross, He redeemed us from the curse of the law. Sickness, disease, pain, and lack were under that curse. That means He paid the price so that you don't have to. Therefore when the devil tries to give you a package filled with sickness, you refuse it and mark it return to sender.

Please note that I'm not suggesting you deny the symptoms. The current fact is that you are dealing with a serious illness. However, God's Truth is bigger than any situation and it is eternal. That means the illness is temporary but God's Word will overcome in the end. We just have to stand strong.

The Truth in the situation is that By Jesus stripes you WERE healed. Once that Truth get down deep in your heart and you believe it with all of your heart, that solution will be bigger than your problem. It's at that point that your situation will change. You will start seeing God's Word do miracles in your situation.

I hope I haven't offended you. I just feel your pain and want you to know you have a way out. These concepts have changed my life so I created a website where I could share them with others. Feel free to visit if you're interested.

I look forward to hearing a great testimony from you soon! :-)

Maybe you need all that sleep that you are getting. You have been very stressed so you may need it.

You need more sleep.  It helps to heal your body.  Though your kids couldn't be there, I'm glad the rest of your family was.
