Simpler Look

Good night all..... I wanted to go back to a more simpler look on the blog........ now if I can figure out how to get the white from behind my banner......... I will figure it out............ hugs to you all and have a great weekend................


No Shot

.........Just to let you gals know that I did not get my shot today...... Once again we got almost half way up there and we ran into freezing rain and sleet...... and you DO NOT want to get caught in Oklahoma City in freezing rain and sleet....... It is a nightmare....... soooooooooo my DH being the Godly man that he is felt very uneasy about proceeding so we call the clinic and and asked when we could reschedule... I go again on Tuesday at 11:00...... By the time we found an exit on the expressway and turned around the ice was collection on the windshield........ so I trust my precious husband's attention to the voice of the Father.......... We came straight home and it is very very cold now and weather has Oklahoma City under Winter Storm Warning........ so there you have it.......... and we wait..........Spent a long time visiting with Jean this afternoon..... She is upbeat and funny as usual........ More worried about me and the weather......... The Jesus in her is so transparent..... she is one of those "just real" people..... I like that. Not too many people like that anymore..... It makes for some very funny moments...... ........ she talks with her hands... and they just go every which way......... I swear if you tied them down she could not talk... When I said goodbye she was looking forward to a baked potato with all the stuff......... God bless that baked potato..........

Just a Quick Note


......... Tomorrow the first shot in my back at 10:30.. We are about 3 hours from the Surgery Center so we will leave early..... I am anxious to try this........... and hopeful that this is the way the Lord wants to heal my back...
........... Just to update you on my friend Jean......... she is such a sweetie.. Talked to her today and she is wanting to help me in some way....... what a blessing............ She is wearing 24 hours Chemo pack now.......she wears is around her neck........ also Radiation every day... I have such a hard time knowing how to pray but God knows so I just pray in the spirit and let the Holy Spirit pray the perfect pray for my friend Jean........ She looks good and is eating well ........ I will go again tomorrow if I get home in good time........... I will be spend a while with her everyday now........ I want to hold her hand and laugh at the good times we remember......... I want to talk of the goodness of the Lord and the powerful things that we have experienced together........ I want to make sure she knows how I love her and how I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we may be parted for a season but there is an eternity to renew....... My heart hurts........ and I cry but I know that my Father God is standing next to her closer than a brother.

The first Valentine's Day


Jhn 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life


Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!! and Happy Feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!! and Happy Feet!!!!!!!!!!! No surgery for now............. Long long day but well worth it......... They had to work me in so you know that makes for a long day.............. Great Dr. and here is what we know..............

I have bulging disc L-5 and S-1...... Right where I sit........ OUCH........ also bone spurs all up my spine with arthritis... Goes up my spine into my neck......... Bummer!!!!!!!! Degenerative disc disease is advanced and hardly any disc left in any vertebrae up my spine............. BUT the good news...... the bulging disc is mild to moderate and we are going to try a few things before surgery......
... I will have a series of Lumbar Epidural Injections of cortisone. I will have three injections two weeks apart. Dr said sometimes it just takes one shot but we can do three........ If I do not get any relief after the second one they will decide if the third one is advised...... then we will go back and consult about other options........ He is very hopeful that the first two will do the trick........ They can do nothing about the degenerative disc disease or the loss of disc in my vertebrae but they can reduce the inflammation in the lower disc and get the pressure off the nerve endings............ So we are so thankful........... I will possibly have the first shot tomorrow. I will have to call the surgery center and set up an appointment and they most of the time can do it the same day.........

.........Dennis and I are thrilled with the news........... We went in thinking surgery in a few days and came home with such good news.......... So ladies...... thanks for the prayers from each of you...... We started this early in January with the Dr's saying it was critical and surgery was imminent to mild to moderate and with pray and the grace of God it will only take a few shots...............
We got home about 9:00 tonight and wanted to get this posted and let you wonderful praying friends share in the praise..........
I do not take this lightly........ I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able............. I know who is my healer.................

We are blessed.............

The Warrior Is A Child



There are just some days when I do not have to be strong....... I think that I try to be strong so I will appear spiritual.......... I don't want to be spiritual, I want to be a child "in" Christ........... I am a dominate personality and that is something that the Lord has really had to work on the past few years... and not to sob out "oh poor me" but the harshness of the world caused me to become far to hardened. I had lived with abuse far too many years before the Lord gave me the gift of Dennis. Maybe over time I will share some of those experiences...

.....I do believe that they have made me stronger, but they also have made me a bit more hard headed. Anyone that knows me will say amen to that..... However, who I was in Christ was buried in the rubble that the world heaped on top of me and the delusions of life that had been put there by the lies of the enemy.

..... When I was born again in 1977, and many years after that when the abuse finally ended I was a trash can full of the world and my Father God had to roll up His sleeves and begin to uncover the Denise that He created. There are things that He must do for us in order for us just to survive and then there are things that He will ask us to do. That is fair, but there is one thing that only He alone can do and that is to return to us our worth.

........There were times before that day in 1977 that I would shake my fist in the face of God and swear to Him that I would never be treated like that again and if He were going to allow it to continue then He was not the God I thought He was...... (I was a lost and undone woman with no idea of who He was anyway, Just a God that I had read about in Sunday School )

..........I searched for worth in so many places and created alter egos so others would accept me that when Jesus found me I had no idea who I was, where I was going or what in the world I was even put here for. He had to sift through the rubble and begin to uncover Denise. He has done a good job, today I know who I am and I no longer need the approval of any man.

......My standing in Christ is just as sure and steadfast when I am sitting in my comfy chair or sitting in a pew... or wielding my sword or just whispering in His ear names of those that need a touch. Who I am is no longer an issue with me as much as where I stand in Christ. It is in the simple gesture of my Father God turning His eyes toward me and my eyes catching His glance that my spirit man is renewed and my worth becomes validated once again..........

......We are human.......... we women were created emotional.......... He knows that......... He expects that............. there is an order for our lives........... first a child of the God....... then a woman....... then a wife..... then a mother.............. then all else........... We need to allow ourselves to be just a child on occasions and lay down the armor ........... and just sit at His feet.................. and I have to remind my self of that pretty often......... I cannot fix anything but I want to ...... I am not the savior or healer of anyone I want to be ...... I cannot be strong all the time, but I want to be............ but I am just me......... and that is ok....... and sometimes I just cry..........

Love you gals a lot....... and pray for each of you today......... that is will be a "child" day........ and you can just rest...........
