I continue to pray...I share this not to bring attention to me...but maybe to know that God cares...He will put you all on a strangers heart in the middle of the night to pray...and that is just what He did last night...God is faithful...He sees and He hears and He does care. blessings and continued grace to you all~

Child of God

Continuing to pray and pray for your family. :)

I just chuckled about the squirrels. I had no idea they liked pumpkin that's neat. We have been infested with chipmunks. The 13 lined back chipmunks have discovered the open container of bird seed on our deck. They come many times during the day to feast and stuff their little cheeks to bursting and it drives our 3 cats mad! It is so funny to watch. You see the container of seeds is right beneath the bay window. The cats literally are on top of these beasties as they feast. It quite hilarious to watch the cats tail flick back and forth and to hear the various sounds coming from them. You are right in saying these little guys are fearless.

God's peace and presence be with you.


Joanne, I think of you so often and the struggles and challenges and sudden changes your life has taken. My best friend's hubby (formerly healthy and NO illness) had a stroke one year after yours. Altho he is much older, the challenges are very similar, although you have much more cognitive ability than Jerry does.

I'm so glad to know you can read and plan and converse. We pray for you often here in my circles and trust that God will continue to bless you and your precious family!


love, heartfelt hugs and prayers to your family. your determination and trust in God is wonderful to witness. praying for you, joanne, as you help your family 'springclean' your home - may God grant you unexpected joys and peace in the process!

You are very attached to God. I will pray for you Joanne and in your family as well. God will never leave you if you really need him. God Bless You.

Toben and Joanne,
We will continue to pray your prayer requests! Yes, the days I'm home I miss our son horribly and can't wait for him to come home. But I also miss him when I'm at work!
Maybe Joanne could use a "picker upper" that lets her pick things up with just one hand and then she would feel more like a part of the cleaning team. She blogged once about how she was organizing the bookshelf in your home - maybe she could still be in charge of something like that!
