Hello From Shortybear

Hello everyone, I pray that you are all doing well, and are happy. It has been such a long time since I have been online, I have missed you all very much, my prayers for you have never ceased. This year has been a very rough one for me so far, in and out of the hospital, taken by ambulance twice. I have never been so sick in my entire life, came close to dying more than once. But, my precious heavenly Father has more life planned for me, thank You Father. I am weighing 109, less than I have weighed my entire life. They have ran all types of test on me, my digestive system is shot, the damage cannot be reversed according to the doctors. I have major nerve damage in my stomach caused by my diabetes, and my thyroid disease. Also have irritable bowel syndrome, and diverticulitis. The constant pain in my stomach is terrible, and constant nausea. I cannot really eat anything, or drink very much. But, my Father is my true Physician, and if He chooses to, He can, and will, totally heal me. My faith is in Him, not man. I chose this new template for my blog, because it is called, the power of love. I definitely believe in the power of love. It is the power of my heavenly Father, lovebug, my dad and my sister, and all of you, that keeps me encouraged, and gives me the strength to go on each day. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your love, friendship, and blessed prayers. Special thanks to my dear sister friend Cathy, sorry it took so long for me to acknowledge your beautiful gift to me. The robe you sent me was so nice, I loved it. The color, and the size were perfect. I appreciate you so very, very much. I feel your love and prayers daily. I love you beyond measure. Karen, thank you for your love, and precious prayers. The cards you have sent are so encouraging to my heart. I love you very much. Sweet sister Peggy, I have missed you very, very much. You lift my spirit with your kindness, love, and prayers. Always know, you are a constant in my thoughts and prayers. I love you dearly. Marsha, I love you more than words. Thanks everyone for your continued love, friendship, and prayers. May God sweetly bless you all. I will be making a video with my lovebug very soon.  Bye for now.

Hi Shortybear,
I am new here. A while ago a Sojourner put up a post requesting prayer for you so I came by and have been praying for you. Bless your heart!
I am sorry you are suffering so much and I hope our Father will touch your body and heal you. I am thrilled to see how much faith you have placed in Him; this makes my heart soar!!

Praying and praying,

Hi Denise,
You have been on my mind and in my prayers. Sorry I haven't sent you a message to check up on you, but my husband lost his job recently and that has us in a bit of a stressful state. However, just like you, we're trusting God that all will be well. So sorry for all you've been through and are having to face. Please know that we all care deeply about you and your health. Stay strong!

Denise, It is so good to see you posting again. I have gotten to know you a little better through Peggy and prayers at The Lighthouse. I've never been as sick as you have been but in '99 I was in the hospital for a month so I do know a little about the turmoil of not knowing how things are going to turn out, but my Heavenly Father took very good care of me as He has you. My prayers continue for you that God will perform a miracle and heal you completely in the name of Jesus.
Blessings, prayers and love,
AlicE. (From the Heart)

I plead the Name of Jesus over you, my beloved sister in Christ, Denise, that you will not be defeated but rise up and declare the glory of the Lord in your healing.

Lynn said...

Oh Denise,

You have no idea how glad I am to read this post. I have been asking Marsha constantly if she has heard from you. I know she went for me and for her to your house once to check on you. I am sooooo relieved to hear your voice in this post.

Please know that I am praying. The Lord loves you so very much. Your kindness and love on the web have changed lives. Mine especially. I love you my sister. Lynn

Sorry to hear you have been so so sick. I haven't been on the computer much lately as I have been busy taking care of my parents as well as my family while squeezing in some art that keeps me sane. I have missed you. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Praying you will be better soon.
