Thank for your prayers on behalf of my friend, Clara.
She is now home recovering from her triple bypass heart
surgery. It has been good to hear her voice and
receive a note from her. The visiting nurse says she
is doing well. Praise goes to our heavenly Father
for this positive health news in Clara's life.
Dear Friends for Jesus Viewers,
Yesterday I talked to a special friend, whom I call my "little sister". She was all smiles and walking on
air, or so it seemed.
You see two days before she and her husband welcomed home their son, Ben, after his fourteen month tour of duty in Iraq.
The big yellow ribbon on a large tree in their front yard has been removed now . . . their son is safely on US soil .
. . surely a wonderful answer to their prayers for his safe return. He came home without having received any injuries.
Another Praise the Lord for this!
This wonderful family noticed a young lad in a wheel chair waiting for the marines to return on a bus. He wanted to
see his buddies. He had to come home early for he had lost both his legs. Ben's Mom and Dad gave this young lad a special
So it was a joyous and yet tearful time when sixteen names were shown on a black banner. These sixteen young men didn't
make it home alive. How wonderful when wars will be no more!
Dear Friends For Jesus, thanks for your concern and prayer
for us while we were ill. We are both fine now, thank the Lord, it feels so good to feel not sick. M's
sick time totaled about 30 minutes. He wasn't looking too spry, looking tired too early in the day, etc.
I asked him, are you okay? He replied he felt a little sick. I urged him to get some rest, sit down and put his
feet up. He did so for 5 minutes, then jumped up and said he refused to be sick! He then went out and did a bunch
of work and has been his normal bouncy self since, for which we are both thankful. I privately thought "Mary Baker Eddy
would have loved him!" Resisting illness usuallly works for me too, just so I give in and rest a bit, but this time
it didn't. M & M March 7,2007
I want to thank all of you for your prayers for my dad. He went
into the hospital two weeks ago not expected to live. He is now off of life support, off of many of the drugs that were
keeping him alive and now they are talking about transferring him to a facility for rehab...the hospital staff are calling
him the miracle man...but WE know why he is a miracle. I praise the Lord for all he has done. I also pray that
this will be used as a healing time emotionally for our family.
Thank you all once again for your prayers!!!
Blessings to all!!!!
Dear Friends for Jesus,
Just a note to tell you of the blessings and answers
to a prayer I received. For a while I have been praying that my daughter would find her way to Jesus. She is now in a bible
study group and talks with me constantly about how this has changed her life. And, as a bonus, her youngest son has been attending
church and bible study classes weekly with a friend of his. Mind you, he is only 12 years old and has decided to do this upon
his own. Of course, we know God had his hand in this. I praise His Name for this blessing with a bonus.
Faithfully yours and Eternally His,
Dear Friends For Jesus,
The sun was brighter today, the air was refreshing, and
my heart was warmed . . .
because I learned this morning that my daughter is praying.
For years I have pleaded with God
to draw her back home to Him.
Recently this daughter of mine has been seeking a new job.
I have been praying the Lord would lead her
to the job that was just right for her. I wondered
to myself, "Is she praying about this, too?" Well, today I learned
indirectly, that yes . . . my daughter is praying that
God will lead her in her job quest. Further, she told a friend . . .
"I say prayers every night with my little girl".
I believe my precious daughter is slowly but surely on
her way back home to God. My gratitude goes to Jesus for
answering my many years of prayer for this dear girl.
Dear Friends for Jesus ~
This little note could be entitled "Before you pray, I will answer".
Recently it came
to my attention that my Dad, who lives far away from us, could not live "independently" any more. He has had a wonderful caregiver,
but his care became too much for her.
Well, God, of course, knew all this ahead of time. For you see Dad will be moving
to a Family Care home run by his present caregiver's granddaughter and her husband. It sounds like a heaven sent place and
situation, and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to our Heavenly Father that my Dad will be living in such a warm, loving, caring
atmosphere -- surrounded by people he knows and loves.
Further to this, I was assured today, and this just blows me
away . . . that when the time comes that Dad's health requires more intense care, the daughter of his present caregiver will
take him in her home. Her words were, "I want him".
Now we have the assurance Dad will never have to face having to
be a nursing home resident. He just couldn't handle that type of living at all.
So be assured my friends, God is watching
over us . . . and He has blessings and plans for us that are for our best . . . they might not be known to us all the time,
but God will put His love into action! Rest assured in His wonderful arms.
Thankfully to my Father God and His Son,
Jesus, I share this note.
Friends For Jesus,
moment during a busy morning, I have to stop and share some good news.
A few weeks ago prayer was requested for Leon and Althea.
Leon had suffered a stroke, and his memory was affected. Just recently I spoke with
both of them on the phone, and I am so pleased to tell you that Leon's
memory is greatly improved. There are still some physical concerns. Leon and
Althea wanted to thank everyone for praying for them, and your continued prayers would be appreciated. THANK YOU!
