Miss Wylma

I started writing this post back on August 1st, 2012 and now I just found out that Miss Wylma passed away last week. Not a huge surprise since she was 93 years old but it is sad because I don't believe she truly put her faith in Jesus Christ for her salvation and eternal life. She was counting on her works to get her to heaven. 

I finish this post as a reminder that I need to keep my focus on the eternal, share the good news and have a heart for the lost.

This is Miss Wylma

We went over to her house before she moved away in 2012 and she had all her old pictures out

 and she was sharing lots of stories with us.

one of my favorite pictures of her

Our last picture together… and sitting here now, looking at this picture, I just realized that 4 out of 5 of us are widows.

John 14:6 ~ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Second Opinion

I know many of you have been wondering what's been going on with me.  After
my first post in April  I didn't really share much more because I wanted more of a firm answer. 

I was also experiencing side effects from the medication and I couldn't think clearly and so I basically stopped reading my Bible.  Yes, I know, that was not the wisest of choices.

Many have been praying for me regarding a new neurologist, if for no other reason than to get a second opinion. 

God answered that prayer by blessing me with a neurologist literally across the street from my work so I can walk to him and Kathy doesn't always have to take time off work and drive me (my previous neurologist was 45 minutes away).

The new neurologist did confirm:
  • the arachnoid cyst in my brain does not need to be removed
  • we will never know why I have lived 35 years of my life without a seizure and then all of a sudden I have a gran mal seizure
  • the medication I am currently on is the best medication for this type of seizure, however he was more than willing to change my medication (which my previous neurologist was adamantly against almost to the point that I feel he is getting paid to push certain pills)
  • that it is very normal for hormones to trigger seizures but that my seizures can be controlled thru medication 
I am still experiencing mini seizures but the neurologist said I was on a very low dose of medication so the next step for me is to have my blood drawn in a week and go back to him in two weeks so he can adjust my medication.

I just want to again say thank you to all who have been praying. 

To God be the Glory!

Happenings & Prayer Request

First of all, I want to say I am sorry if I have mislead you by not being real on my blog.  It's so easy to put on a happy face and not really let others get to know me but now I wonder how honest is that?

I've been working through many things lately and one thing I've learned about myself is that I have a lot to learn about relationships and I'd like to start by focusing on my relationship with God.  I want a deeper, stronger relationship with my heavenly Father.

The past few months have been full of many emotions and struggles for me.  The best way I can explain it is I just felt oppressed emotionally, spiritually and physically by this trial.

A church friend reminded me to find my joy in the Lord and not in my circumstances because God doesn't promise it will be easy for us (1 Thes 5:18).  I needed that reminder and I am so thankful for dear friends who are willing to speak truth into my life and direct me back to the Bible.

I've been listening through some messages on Philippians today and I was challenged to be more like Paul who persevered and pressed on toward the goal.  I don't know exactly what God's will is for my life but I do know that I want my life to bring Glory to God (Is 64:4).

Please pray for me as I go see a new neurologist  this next week, pray we are able to get some answers.
