This&That

Hello dear friends, hope everyone is doing well. As for me, not feeling well, physically, or emotionally right now. Physically, my digestive system is just getting worse and worse. I continue to have nausea and diarrhea. The diarrhea is really bad, I keep having accidents on myself. I go next Friday(May 31st) to have x-rays taken of my small intestine. My doctor thinks I might have crohns disease, or colitis.  Emotionally, my heart is very heavy right now, color me deep dark blue. A dear friend, that I use to go to church with , Ricky, passed away in his sleep, Tuesday night. He was only 52. This news really shocked me, and saddened me. He always brought many smiles to my face, and my heart. The last time I saw him, he grabbed me, and hugged me very tightly. He kept saying how good it was to see me, and he thanked me for the letters of encouragement I had written to him while he was away. He said he would never forget the kindness I had shown to him. Well, my dear, sweet friend, I will never forget, but truly always remember, the love, hugs, tears, and laughter the two of us shared. Fly into the arms of Jesus, you are truly free now. I love you Ricky.    When it rains, God still reigns!!

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a dear friend is heavy, and made heavier by your health challenges. I most certainly hope that a workable solution is found so that you are able to restore your health and be able to heal. Much light.

I am praying for your health sweet sister...and for your heartache too!
When a Christian dies it is a joyful sadness full of hope and pain both...We know his pain is gone...we are sad, but the hope of seeing him again and knowing he is experiencing fullness of joy there in the Lord's presence makes it easier to bear.
You have that last memory of him..It sounds like a nice happy one too!
I love you, my friend
