This afternoon (Tues) I had the prism put on the left lens of my glasses. It took away my double vision!! It is only a temporary fix so I hope my eyes return to normal FAST! :) Continue to pray for full, 100% recovery, please!
We had a wonderful visit with Pilot. There was an unfortunate incidence with one of our borders, and the police had to be called. I was thankful that Pilot was there to help his dad. I don't know what we would have done without him!
What an historic occasion! We, as Pilgrim Pals, have written 2,000 posts here on this site. Thousands of prayers have gone up to the Father on behalf of each other and for many others who we love and care for.
Thank you so much for carrying on this blog even when I was "laid aside for a season". As I said earlier today, I will not be posting for awhile but I ask for your fervent prayers as I recover from this dreadful depression.
Thanks to each and every one of you. You are loved!
I have a prayer request for ya'll to be praying. Last week I awoke with a headache and double vision in one eye, my right eye. I managed to dink around for a couple of days thinking it was connected to ear and sinuses.
After talking with my sister (who is so much wiser than I) on Saturday Jim and I decided I needed to go visit the ER at our hospital. Wow!! What service! There was absolutely no waiting! I didn't even get to finish giving my history and stuff before I was in a room! After ruling out "stroke", muscle problems etc. it was determined it is something directly related to the eye.
I am leaving shortly to go see my opthamologist who will be able to give me a diagnosis. After researching (never, ever do this) on line regarding double vision in one eye I became a little nervouse to say the least.
Anyway, all that just to say I need prayer, that my nerves will be calm, the doctor has wisdom, and anything else God lays on your heart. Thanks ever so much, precious PALS!!!
IN HIS GRIP, Claire
p.s. For those who have been praying for Pilot, he arrived stateside Saturday morning. What a great way to be awakened! AND, he will be here on the 16th! He's coming for a wedding and for Father's Day! :) Color me HAPPY
Sorry I've been out of commission for a few weeks - my computer crashed and I finally got a new one - praise and thanks to God for my brother who helped me shop around and get set up.....I'm fairly technically challenged :)
Anyway, here's my little update:
I took a new job, in a new department - still with the same corporation (don't want to give details....most Pals know) - it's much busier, which I like. I feel more productive and using my time faithfully. The job is temporary for 1 year and then I will have to go back to the other job where there is barely anything to do....but I am sure God will work that all out next year.
I feel I've been on a path of renewal....it's been a very difficult path but necessary. As I look over the last 4 years I see where I wasn't being faithful or trusting in God's good plan for me...mixing with folks I shouldn't have mixed with. Going off the WAY only leads to increased suffering. Although some suffering is good for the Christian; there is redemption in suffering after all - our ultimate redemption is found in Christ's suffering. Suffering can lead to a much deeper, meaningful relationship with God. It can lead to maturity and wisdom ...if we allow it to take us there and not become resentful towards God. I think I've often been resentful and self-righteous in my attitude. We have an Enemy who loves to encourage us in our suffering times towards resentment. I pray for all Christians to not give the devil a foothold in times of trial, but to have the Grace of God to remain and persevere. God bless you all. Little Missionary
