From 100% Sure … To Something Else

I was almost asleep this morning when the phone broke the silence (with the exception of Hannah’s soft kitty snores), and I grabbed the receiver as fast as I could. I had to reach over her slumbering form as I did so. Let me tell you, I was anticipating my Sister reporting that the test results were in, the operating table was imminent and the surgeons in place. Much to my bewildered surprise, having been in an almost dream-state a minute before, came the joyful and almost unbelievable words, “They’re not going to operate.” 

For those of you who do not pray and don’t believe in prayer, I have to say that this prayer reward is an outstanding one. Miracles Do Happen. We went from 100% surety of a double bypass surgery to a new decision of we will handle this with medication. I felt tears welling up in my eyes while listening to her relief and it was one of the sweetest joys we have shared thus far.

I continued to ask people to pray for her and I even sent a message to the Dali Lama, because I knew how much she admired him. I AM Thankful and mindful to share this miracle with anyone who wants to read about it. With all of the craziness going on in our world it’s always wonderful to witness an about-face to a problem that seemed insurmountable, only to be dissolved and brushed away by the Hand of God.

Blessings have reigned down upon us and I thank each and every one of you who took time out to share in our Special Intention.  

Family Is Everything To Me!

I love my family, the one I was born to and the one I married into. Each person has their own take on life, personal beliefs, religion, subjects of interest, tastes, fashion sense, opinions and issues … sometimes with each other. We’re only human after all. So it was quite disturbing to receive a phone call ten hours ago, and learn that my middle Sister is in hospital, and facing a serious operation this weekend. I think of her lying in her hospital bed … it’s 4:22 AM, and I wonder if she realizes just how many people are praying for her right now. I wonder if she can hear my fervent whisperings to Our Creator and my asking the angels to stay close. I wonder if she has, as I have been doing all evening, been thinking about old times when we were young and sharing a home. Has she thought about any of our girlish conversations and the games we played together? We bonded as siblings usually do when they are close in years. She held my hand and taught me things bigger sisters know about and I was her willing servant back then. I was devoted. I wonder if she feels the love I have for her. It is vital that she understands how precious she is. I hope she does and if you believe in miracles then please join me and countless family, friends and neighbors who are taking time to pray for her complete and successful healing. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.
