Begging for Your Prayers Today

I'm having a terrible flare up with my RA (rheumatoid arthritis). It has been a year or more since I've experienced this much physical pain. It kept me up all night, in tears off and on. I'm on my way to lie down; hoping sleep will come. I'm at the point where I'm shivering as though I have a high fever. This happens when I'm overtired and inflammation has set in.

Please add a little prayer in there for my Shane too, as he will be on his own today. He's a good boy and will do his school work and check in on me often. I just regret we won't get much accomplished today. It will be a lost day in my life.

I'm wishing my sister were here or I were there(Paraguay) as I am longing for a hug from her and her shoulder to cry on. Oh boy, I hope this doesn't sound like a pity party for that is NOT my intention.

Mom and I are planning a surprise "get together" for dad on Septmenber 26th. I'm producing a video of special moments, photos, people, memories, etc. to be shown on the big day. I added a couple of really short video clips here to give you a small sample of some of the heartwarming testimonies we are gathering for our DVD.

Here is my nephew, Joshua Vernoy and his wife. As Josh tries to share his thanks to my dad (his grandpa) he becomes emotional. I cried while I was filming and I cry each time I watch it. It is a blessing to know that I have such a godly father who has impacted the lives of so many in a positive way!

Take 4

For some reason, Take 3 wouldn't load. It was the best as it is the one in which Josh is composed and able to share his heart. I will try it as a new post and see what happens.

Bless his heart. Josh is so sweet and you can see the love he has for his grandaddy. What a legacy he has in all his grandchildren.

Pam, I hope this time of pain passes soon and you can catch up on your rest. Praying for you sweet sister.

Pam, I know those lost days as I have them due to migraines. My heart goes out to you and I'm praying you find strength and relief.

I love the videos. Your father will be so blessed with this special event in his honor. We are blessed women to have godly men to call our dads!

By the way, you are also blessed to have a sister. I don't have one and often long for one just like you and Rita to laugh with, cry with, and hug. I'm glad for my Christian sisters and so glad we've become internet friends.
