Beloved.
I have sent mail, studied, etc. been on phone.
I think it has been three days, since the stick below the tailbone. maybe.. I can mow just a little bit, while here at the church.
I get crampy, I break out in a sweat, I almost puke, I can't breath, i ache all stinking over. Everything spins..
Lin spends $4,000 to hear that I can't mow the grass at church???
When will it end.....

Had a conversation with my son today. There is a family here that are lifelong friends. They are very good people. All their lives they have helped anyone in need. One of their sons was robbed three years ago,and he was hit in the back of the head with a 2X4. He died a year later of complications from his injury. Their oldest daughter just died from food poisioning three months ago. I saw Larry and his wife this last sunday just after they attended sunday services. He shook my hand and wanted to know how my wife was and could they do any thing for us.
I asked Jake why it was some of the worst things happen to the best people. Jake looked at me and said I don't know Dad but you do see people suffer through horrible trials, I don't think it is our place to judge wether they are good or bad people. The pain and hurt is a trial for us all. We all need to push on and overcome the obstacles placed in our path for we are all here for a reason.
I think I am starting to realize why I hang out on the back row while Jake has no problem sitting up front. Hang on my friend there are many things for you to accomplish in this life.
ETTE.
Darrel.

Lon - how long was it supposed to take for that long needle/shot to take effect? It sounds like you're not improving - are you getting any benefit from it yet?

Really sorry to hear how poorly you're doing. hugss

Good Morning Lon

I'm sorry to hear that you are still suffering. I was praying that the injection would help you.

It could be that its just time to pass along the mowing duties to some of the younger members of your congregation. At our church the men have a monthly rotation for caring for the church yard, the shelter house, etc. and the ladies rotate through inside cleaning and baking duties. And a group also rotates monthly for taking communion to those in the nursing homes and shut ins. It works out very well and spreads the duties around so that nobody has to tackle a big chore alone. Just a thought my friend.

I pray that your doctors can help you and Lin find the answers and the relief that you want and deserve. You are great people your love and caring for your fellow man is well known.

You are very loved here.

I woke up this morning to find my little crippled white tail buck out back enjoying a moment at the mineral block that I keep at the edge of the trees in the back yard. He got hit by a car last winter and has a bum from leg now.

Haven't seen nor heard anything from the coyotes in awhile, but the fox are back so I guess they have moved out of the area for awhile. Dad still has a family of bobcats staying on his farm. He has caught them on game cameras several times recently.

When will it end.....

It doesn't end, Lon, it never ends, whether it be pain, life, or the after-life....;-(

And the pain, Wow! It can be all consuming, life changing, and for you, on your side of the world, the expense of a diagnosisís, therapy, help, surgery...it's mind boggling; everything costs at every turn

And yet...

Life, with all it's joys, with all it's pains, is still something to be embraced, welcomed - no matter how much it hurts.

Take heart by much you are loved.

Hugs

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Lin. God won't give us more than we can handle, so if it makes you feel any better, God must think you are a ROCKSTAR!! (And so do I.)

Gentle Hugs,
Donette

br'er lon

well bubba. i like the idea of having some youngsters do the mowing; it's not like your superlon; you don't have to do everything, more powerful than a steam locomotive, faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings.

teach good teachings, make great homilies, comfort the dire and desperate (including yourself)...be good, true to yourself and that which youcan...smell the peonies (if your snow's melted)

i'd send a prayer but that phone is disconnected and your roof might fall in.
so a hug and all my best

Darrel,
So when I head down there some day, will Jake be in the neighborhood?????
I sure have a lot more questions than answers.
I am feeling a bit stronger today.
I am determined to beat this thing...

Wendy-
I am better.
3 hour nap after church.....

How are you? How long of a ferry ride do you take?

I told Lin you might come to visit, and your hubby could measure out our kitchen and then ship them to us when he is done....lol

Thanks,
