Walking With Him

Each morning I go outside and walk. While I walk, I talk to God and meditate on Him. I love to go outside early in the morning while the dew is still on the roses. I love to hear the birds chirp that He has created. I love to feel His cool breeze blowing across my face. I feel so close to God when i am outside. When do you feel close to God?

Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord

Psalm 98:4

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth; make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise"
How do I make a joyful noise unto the Lord? I can sing, I can pray, I can tell others about Jesus. I can Praise Him for everything He does! I can speak kind words to others. How do you make a joyful noise?

Summer Time!

My daughter is healing well! Thank You for the prayers! The kids are out of school! I love the long, lazy days of Summer! Nothing like some cool lemonade on a hot summer day! I love swimming in my pool. So peaceful out there away from everything! I like watching good family movies and playing games with my kids. In the Summer time I try to get up early and walk while it is still cool. I love to go to the Ocean in the Summer but do not always get to go. I love to camp but we don't do that much any more. I like to stand on the banks of a lake and gaze at the sun shining on the water.

My oldest daughter will be having surgery Monday, May 10th to remove a fistula. The fistula is a complication of her Crohn's Disease. She takes Remicade every 8 weeks to control her disease. Remicade can have very dangerous side effects, including cancer. We carried her to Doctor after doctor but none of them knew what she had. One day I felt God speak to me in a small, still voice. He told me that Virginia had a stomach problem. So, finally I made an appt. with a Gastrointestinal Doctor in Chattanooga. Withing five minutes of examining my daughter, he told me she had Crohn's. Her disease was so bad that she had to be put on several medicines. When they did not work, the Dr. decided to try Remicade. The Remicade was supposed to close the fistula up. It has some but not completely. I got so upset when I first found out about her sickness. I couldn't understand why God would let my little girl be sick. He has a plan even though we do not understand
