Sharing My Day Today
If we were having coffee (or diet coke which is my mainstay this time at night), I would tell you what a wonderful day and week it has been for me. First, I have found a local church that I’ve been listening to on my computer for several weeks now. It is named Oasis Church and it is about 6 miles from my home. They have a TV ministry so if I am not physically able to get to church, I can watch the service live on my computer. I have tentatively decided to attend the first time on Good Friday evening for the Communion Service, but it will also depend on how I physically feel that day. So keep me in your prayers.
If we were having coffee or diet coke, I would tell you that this morning’s sermon at Oasis was about I Am Changed and about our transformation and how the belief in Christ is instant but our transformation comes with time and experience and learning from God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and The Bible as well as our willingness to be changed or transformed. I don’t know about you but I am truly ready to be transformed. I am tired of being in pain, unable to go anywhere, unable to socialize, feeling depressed because of my arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. It seems like I got over one hurdle with my healing from my childhood sexual abuse but now I deal with physical chronic illnesses that won’t let go of me. Enough of that!
If we were having coffee or diet coke, I would tell you that the pastor spoke about the Prayer of Jabez this morning which is one of my favorite prayers. It is very powerful and if you have never read it, I recommend you look it up and read about it. It is:
10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested. (highlights mine)

If we were having coffee or diet coke, I’d tell you that my depression was better this week and my flare-up of pain from my arthritis and my fibro has subsided. My finances are still a mess but I have turned that one over to God to handle because it is clear I can’t work since I am disabled and I don’t have any hidden money anywhere. I would ask you how your week has been and wish you a good Holy Week this week leading up to Easter. I am looking forward to the Easter Egg Hunt for the grandchildren this next Sunday afternoon…they always have such a fun time and their eggs are color-coded so there is no fighting over the eggs found. We use the plastic colored eggs and place a piece of candy in each egg, therefore limiting the amount of candy that they get also.
Enjoy Your Holy Week,
