Hello farmgirl sisters! I pray you all had a blessed and merry Christmas!

Just a quick update on Kim's mother, Pat. Friday she was re-admitted to the hospital with severe leg pain, which she has been experiencing on and off for a little while now. They cannot find a reason for the pain, however, tests taken during her last recent stay show that she does indeed have lung cancer. As a result, they are more concerned about the mass in her brain being cancer, AND they are testing her for bone cancer in her leg. Everyone is devastated, so please continue to pray. I will keep you posted. My father-in-law passed after suffering horribly at the hands of bone cancer. I pray to God for His infinite mercy on Pat's behalf, as well as for all our farmgirl sisters and their loved ones who are suffering with cancer and any other illnesses or disease. God is Good - we truly must trust in Him.

Also spoke with my friend Laura briefly yesterday. Her dad is stable, but still very out of it and unlike himself in the nursing facility. Her mother didn't even believe her that it was Christmas. Laura is so completely run down, but continues to prevail out of the love in her heart for her parents. Please continue to pray for her as well.

Kim, Pat and Laura have all asked that I extend their thanks and best wishes to all of you for your continued prayers and support - and a Merry Christmas to you all!

Christmas here was quite peaceful and full of love and blessing. I am grateful! My dad sounded good, weak but quite cheerful, actually. And my husband and son were just wonderful to me - such a blessing! I am very, very grateful. This year the Pope's Christmas message was about how we really need to see past all the commercialism and colorful lights to focus on the humble, sweet way God entered the world - in the form of a baby, innocent, helpless, in need of love and care. Much like your own message in your blog, Peggy, which I loved! What an amazing thing to ponder. I think perhaps all the insane shopping and hoopla we encounter during the Christmas season truly was why so many of us were losing heart before the holiday. The world has missed the mark with this holy celebration, and it is disheartening. But our true joy is found when He is born in our hearts! Then EVERY day is truly Christmas! Praise His Holy Name!!! We are truly blessed! Let us share Him and His Love with the world today and always! Amen!!!

My husband and I were talking this morning... Do any of you well remember the holiness of Sundays? Remember how everyone went to church then spent the rest of the day in peace and celebrating Life wih their families? I remember how everything was closed, with the exception of the "drug stores," which only opened until noon for emergency prescriptions. I remember how quiet the streets were - nary a car in sight. I remember how "boring" I thought that was when I was little, and yet, those Sundays hold some of the most precious memories for me. I really would like to reclaim the Christian Sabbath and make it holy again... What a wonderful New Year's resolution for us all! What do you think? What are your memories of Sundays as a kid, and what do you do today to keep it special for God and family today? How can we, together as God's children, reclaim this day of holiness for the world? Let's pray about it!

Hugs and blessings to you all -

Nini

Kristina...I would also like to highly recommend a book to you called "The Worn Out Woman" by Dr. Steve
Stephens/co-authored by Alice Grey. When I read it was like a breath of Fresh Air...It was like..."Wow, finally someone truly understands me!

Also, (If you haven't already) I recommend going to the Forum "Across The Fence" and signing up for the
up coming Farmgirls Bible Sudy. It will be something even the working woman will be able to do...because
you won't be relegated to a certain time frame. You can jump on any time that you have a few minutes through the day or evening.

I will be praying for you!

blessings,
Peggy

Good morning, girls!

I've been praying for you, Kristina! I'm so sorry... I haven't forgotten you; it's just with all that has been happening here, I haven't been able to make that phone call yet. But today I have some time to myself and it's on the list! :) I'll see what I can do!

Good news to report! Praise God! Pat's brain tumor is NOT cancer! The way Kim explained it is basically that it's a calcified knot of arteries or veins. There had been bleeding around it, which is what the doctor says was probably the cause of Pat's seizures. They replaced the silver dollar-sized piece of skull that they removed with a titanium plate, citing that at Pat's age, bone just doesn't heal very quickly. She should be out of the hospital in 3 or 4 days. She isn't going to be too happy to learn she can't drive for the next 6 months, but given the fact that two out of the three scarey things that are happening to her aren't cancer, I think she will be very thankful and happy. Kim said they don't know what is going to happen as far as treatment with the lung cancer yet, but she imagines that they will be dealing with that very soon, once Pat is recovered. Now that the doctors have a fuller picture of what they are dealing with, they can move forward. Yay! God IS good - SO good! There was such welcomed relief in Kim's voice last night; I'm so happy for them! Thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU for your continued prayers.

Now one more prayer request... I didn't get to my emails til late last night, which is unusual for me, but I'm dealing with a respiratory thing and just didn't feel like going upstairs, you know? Anyhow, a very close friend (she refers to me as her pseudo-mother) sent me and pretty much everyone very close to her an email early yesterday evening which was very unnerving. Without going into details, she has been suffering from depression, a painful separation from her army husband, and dealing with life as a single mom. In her email, she sounded suicidal, apologizing (unnecessarily) for letting us all down, telling us how much we have meant to her, wishing she could've done more to make us proud, etc. I was absolutely blown away because when I saw her last week, she was really chipper and told me how she and her husband were going to try to work things out, etc. She seemed very happy and upbeat - I was just so happy for her. When I got her email, I tried reaching her dad, her mom and her grandma (who is like a pseudo-mother to me!), but no one answered. I called a mutual family friend, who was also extremely concerned by the email. She, too, made phone calls without success. We are truly praying that we were unable to reach anyone because they had received the email and were with her, and hope that someone will return our calls today and allay our fears. Please pray for our girl, Fawn, okay? She is such a blessing to everyone - the kindest, most thoughtful, sweetest, loving person you could ever meet. I babysat her when she was a little girl, and she, in turn, babysat my son when he was little. As a matter of fact, she was my son's first crush when he was little - to attest to that fact, he even wrote her name in little kid letters on our upstairs hallway wall in permanent ink; a memory we all laugh about and cherish to this day. The poor kid has just been through a lot since the birth of her little boy (now two). I just really, really, really want her to be okay and be blessed with all the good that God offers us. Please pray for her, okay? I have no idea what to think at this point. Let's just suffice it to say that since our mutual friend, my husband and our foster daughter read her email, we're all feeling extremely uneasy for our dear, much-loved friend, and a whole lot of prayers have been going up for her.

I really, really hate these "downer" cycles - don't you? I'm sorry it's been all doom and gloom these past few posts, truly. It's not how I like to be at all. But when these things happen, you just really need people praying - our prayers make all the difference in the world. I hope you understand. To be quite honest, it's been like this since the beginning of summer - one crisis after another. I am so ready for the new year. Although I realize that it's only a new year on the calendar and that the days run together, being the same one day from the next, somehow New Years Day always brings about that feeling of a fresh start. I'm praying, for ALL of us, that the New Year is bright with promise!!!

Hugs to all of you... Kristina, I promise I'll get back to you asap.

Happy day!

I just stopped to day my blood pressure is up. I have another bloody nose. I'll be back, if the kids aren't hogging the computer, to read over the newest posts.

Nini, added your friend to my prayer list today. Absolutely sounds like a call for help? Can someone do a welfare check?

Thanks, girls - No word yet, but I'm sure someone will get back to us soon. Judith - Thank you so much. I should've clarified, as far as I and our mutual friend know, she was in the process of moving from her dad's home to her grandmother's home. I'm sure someone will be able to check on her one way or another. Her grandmother was out of town over the holidays visiting with family, which I had completely forgotten when I tried calling her last night; but our mutual friend said she is returning sometime today.

Kristina - I just made that call and am emailing you now! :)

Hugs -

Hi Girls -

I just spoke with Fawn's mother. She did indeed OD last night, but her dad and stepmother found her and rushed her to the hospital just in time. She had taken a combination of muscle relaxers and sleeping pills. When her mother asked her why, she just said that she couldn't think of any reason not to, and sobbed. She doesn't have much recollection about anything the night before. She had called her husband, but she has no memory of even speaking with him. The poor guy is 500+ miles away from his wife and child, and frantic beyond belief. For now, she is stable and in good hands. Our girl just needs plenty of respite, care and therapy. I know God loves her even more than we do, and was vigilantly watching over her. I know He will bring her through the long journey that's ahead, too. I'm just so thankful her parents found her and that she is alive. For now, we just have to sit tight and do whatever we can to help... and, most importantly, PRAY. The poor kid - she has been through so much. I just want her to be okay. I love her dearly.

I'll keep you posted as I know anything. Thank you SO much for your prayers!

Hugs and much love,

Nini

Nini...so, glad to hear that her folks found her before it was too late. Desperate times
seems to make people take desperate measures. Praise God that she sent you all that email!
That was her last minute cry for help. I will keep praying for her and her family.

Just want you all to know that my Son decided not to have the surgery tomorrow. Decided that
making some life style changes would be much better for his health and relationships both. I
was so glad that he made that decision. Thanks to those of you who prayed for him before hand.
I truly believe that God lead him to make the right decision...through your prayers.

Sounds like many of us are excited about the new Bible Study Group. I know I am...even though
I teach a Bible Study one evening a week. I am excited to do this with my on-line christian
sisters.

blessings,
peggy

Nini, thanks for the update thank God that she was found. What a miserable permanent solution to a temporary problem. Praying that God will uplift and surround her.
Peg, good for him. I do not know anyone that could not benefit from a lifestyle change of some sort. With me it's chocolate.
Kristina praying for that to behave itself.
Blessings all.

Thanks, girls. Please - I have to ask for more prayer. Our mutual friend called a little while ago. CYS has been called in. They will determine whether Fawn is a fit mother or whether they need to remove her son from her care. I am SURE her dad and his wife would take him, they just love him to bits. (My husband and I would/will offer, too, if that was the option.) I'm also sure her son's dad would take him if possible - but he's in the army and based 500 miles away... I'm not sure whether he even could or would be allowed to take his son at this point. The poor guy must be going out of his mind. And when Fawn hears that CYS is being called in, she is going to fall apart all over again. Her son is the light of her life. I still cannot understand why he wouldn't have been enough to stop her from this terrible thing - this is just not her. I honestly believe when a person - any person - gets to the point that suicide is the only option, that their mind must be totally gone. She is suffering so much, my poor girl. My heart is just breaking for her and my stomach is in knots. Her grandma's flight should've landed by now, so I'm sure she is there with her at the hospital. Thank God. Her grandma is the one wonderful person who always makes things right. I know she will give her so much strength and ease of mind. This is just so sad, so horrible. So, please continue to pray, okay? Thank you, and God bless you!

Peggy, I'm so glad you've got peace about your son's decision - it sounds like it really is the best decision. It's so hard sometimes, isn't it? But trusting in the Lord is everything - He NEVER fails us. I'm so glad all is working out!

Yes! I'm excited about the Bible study, too. That's one of my biggest passions. I love to learn and share! I'm always amazed at the depth and breadth of the Scriptures - even at its simplest, God's Word is so rich and powerful!

Kristina - hope you got my email and it helps! Big hugs - it will get better!

Blessings and hugs to all -

Nini

PeggyAnn, I have read that book and actually own a copy of it. I haven't read it again for over 6 years or so. I loved it, so maybe i need to read it again. I will consider the on-line Bible study. I have not been to a physical group Bible study for about 2 years.

Nini - I just read your post about your friend. I am so glad that someone got her to the hospital. Hopefully she will find someone, and I will pray that God sends her someone, who can be there for her day in and day out - listening, loving, and more. Also, I got your e-mail. Thank you.

Hello Everyone

I have been reading the post and praying. I am so thankful that Fawn was found in time. My heart breaks though for the struggle she has ahead. I pray that she will let go and let Christ take care of things.

Seems like everyone had a lovely Christmas. Ours was too. Andrew was Andrew. Un-happy with everything. and crawled back into bed for an hour or so. (This is a yearly thing So no surprises there) My friends from India who spend every holiday with me and Chris, came up to my in-laws house to be with me --so we would not break our tradition. IT WAS A GREAT BUFFER.
I am so looking forward to a NEW YEAR. You remember me posting that we have to move from our lease house to another while we build? Our neighbors right next door moved to Ireland for two years just a few months ago, but the husband comes home once a month to pay bills and check on the place. Chris had a chat with them about leasing their place and they said yes. It would be a great help for them.

Thank you guys for praying for the situation. It has been a great stress on Chris and I. With the money we save on rent (they have ask for less than half of what we are paying now) we can pay off some medical bills we have on the kids and build up a little emergency cushion. God is good in all things.

Suzanne...so glad to hear that God is answering your concerns and needs. He is Good...All The Time!

Please pray for my youngest son. He has some serious decisions to make on his job future. Only God
can give him the direction he needs.

Happy New Year My Christian Farmgirls! It is a Blessing to Pray for YOU!

Hi girls! Happy last day of 2011! :)

Thank you for your prayers - I just want to give you all a quick update...

Hi girls -

Just a quick update -

Spoke with Fawn. She is home with her dad, stepmom and son. She's doing much better, praise God. She said that she just wanted to make everything stop and she wasn't thinking straight when she took those pills. She'll have to attend therapy three times a week and she's going to quit her job to focus on herself and her son. She's going to stay with her dad and stepmom for a while, and eventually move into her great-grandma's house. I asked what was happening with CYS, and she said she didn't hear anything about that. I'm thinking - and hoping and praying - it was all just a miscommunication and misunderstanding passed along through the ranks. She seemed to be doing well, but she did cry a lot. I felt so bad. We had a good talk, though, and she realizes how much she is loved and how important she is. She was just not in her right mind when she did this. She's going down to Texas to spend a week with her husband at the end of the month, and then they'll be driving back together to spend some time here while he's on leave. She was really, really happy about that. I'm so glad they're trying to work things out. :) Our conversation didn't last very long, but I'm feeling so much better about things now that I've heard her voice - thank God. She is very grateful for everyone's prayers, and said to be sure to thank you all. I'm just so relieved. SO relieved.

My dad was back in the hospital, too. He has internal bleeding, but they cannot figure out where it is happening. They took him off the Coumadin as a result, and did a blood transfusion yesterday. I asked what this means for the clot in his heart, and he said it's just something that will dissolve itself. He said he has an appointment with his doctor on Monday and will know then how they are going to proceed and what to expect. He said he just wants this all to be done, he is tired and frustrated. He also sends his thank you for praying him through this and asks that you continue to keep him in your prayers. He still sounded strong, but has resorted to his more softer, tender side again, which tells me he is scared and unsure of what to expect. I hate being so far away, you know? But he keeps saying there is no need for us to come out while he's in and out of the hospital and incapacitated like this. He wants us to come when he's doing better so we can enjoy quality time together. I understand and respect his wishes, but it sure doesn't make it any easier.

My friend Kim's mom will be coming home to stay with Kim and her husband. Kim will be caring for her during her recovery from the brain surgery, and it looks as though she will be having her cancer treatment out here rather than in Pittsburgh. Nothing will be settled until she sees the doctor, but for now, she's safe, sound, well cared for and much loved. You can't ask for more than that, can you? :) Kim and Pat both send their many, many thanks for all your prayers; they know that God has been listening, and are just so grateful that she has gotten through all of this and "only" has to face the lung cancer. They're keeping positive!

That's all for now...

Kristina - how are you feeling today? You are under so much stress, I feel so bad. I'll be keeping you in my prayers, though, don't worry! :) BIG hugs to you!

Peggy - I will pray for your youngest son. Those life decisions sure can stress you out when you don't have a clear vision of where God wants you to be. I'm sure God will guide him to do the right thing. :)

Suzanne - that IS really great news! It's awesome to know God really is working in the background on our behalf. When things like this happen, it really does boost our faith all the more! I'm so happy for you! YAY!

Let's just keep positive and look forward to this New Year. This past year, as all do, had its ups and downs; but what I appreciate most is how we have all grown closer this year. I treasure each and every one of you, and pray that we all stay healthy and have good things come in the New Year! It should be exciting to see how everything unfolds! :)

Have a happy, healthy and blessed - and safe! - New Year, everyone!

Hugs -

Nini

May tomorrow and all of 2012 bring you God's increased blessing, a closer walk with Him, ears to hear His still small voice and faith to walk in the path He has set before you!

Hello Marly
We love living here. My husband is a Nuclear Chemist and works in Acquisitions at River Bend here in St. Francisville.
We live just a little north of the town at Lake Rosemound and it is beautiful. It is a bird sanctuary so the wild life is spectacular. Our family participates in the pilgrimage each year--costumes and all. My oldest daughter is old enough to be a sweet maid for the third year. Lily will be one next year. I have been assigned to Rose Down Plantation this year and am very excited because it is one of my favorite plantations.
Lake Rosemound is convenient to Woodville, Ms and Natchez, MS. too, which we love to visit for day trips.

I actually love the east coast and New England and I miss them so very much. but....Lake Rosemound is a great place to be if I am not there.
...and I am excited about the house we are building.
Let me know if you ever head this way, I will be happy to offer you a cup of tea and show you around to the places I know.

Have a Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!!!
