Merry Christmas Everyone

It's been a tough year for everyone who has stuck with my blog in 2017.  It seems about the only thing I post about is my mom.  Mainly because my life pretty much revolves around her right now.  

She spent a couple of days in the hospital earlier this week.  

She is struggling to eat and drink.  Just a few bites here and there are about all we can get in her.

Her blood work is good.  Her vitals are good.  

Her nutrition needs some MAJOR IMPROVEMENT.

If you've stuck with me this far, then you must be a prayer warrior, cause there hasn't been much entertainment on my blog for a long time.  Today, my mother needs your prayers.  We are praying for strength.  We are praying for appetite.  We are praying for encouragement. 

We are speaking life and health into her body in the name of Jesus.

She's tired and we're tired, but thank God HE NEVER SLEEPS!!

He is our Hope.

He is our Peace.

He is our Source.

Thank you for praying.

Merry Christmas to you all.

I'm so thankful for Jesus.  He is my Savior.

11 Days Til Christmas

I don't have my Christmas tree up and it's not looking good that I will get it put up.  The jury is still out but every day that goes by makes it a little easier to NOT put it up.  But who knows . . . I may get energetic this weekend.  Heaven knows my house could use some Christmas cheer. 

I have purchased a few gifts but none are wrapped.

I haven't even ordered Christmas cards so for the first time in years it doesn't look like anyone will get a Christmas card from me. Again, there's still this weekend for my interest level in Christmas cards to kick in.  I'll let you know.

I did set out my little glass Christmas tree collection on my mantle. . . does that count for anything?

Seriously . . . InstaGram makes me feel so inadequate, especially at Christmas time.
 My mom has had a tough time.  We did get the two remaining compression fractures fixed last week (yes there were two instead of one . . . again) and her back is feeling better.  But she is really struggling to eat.  She has no energy.  She just sits and watches television and naps.

I have prayed, I have bound, I have rebuked.

I have pled the blood of Jesus.  I have quoted Scripture.  I have called and asked for prayer from every reputable Christian ministry I can think of.

We have some big decisions to make where her treatment is concerned.

She needs your prayers.

My hope is in Jesus, and I trust Him completely.

But I wouldn't be honest if I didn't admit that there are days I just don't understand.

Psalm 27: 13-14
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
