    Hi fellow members of Fibromyalgia Sufferers Unite!

    I pray this post finds all of you happy and healthy this day. I know that can be a dream on some days. I have been snowed in for more than a week now and my new puppy is why I am still smiling. I can't even look at his face without smiling. Those big brown eyes reach down into my heart and fills it to overflowing. I am so thankful that God created these creatures for us to enjoy. I dare anyone to tell me dogs (and cats) don't have souls! A 'soul' consists of three things: your mind, your will and your emotions, as described by Joyce Meyer. There is NO doubt in my mind these creatures have souls. They have a mind of their own, a will of their own and are emotional. And so, I send you encouragement today to take a moment and ENJOY their pet! I am: katkrazy >^,,^<

    Pardon Me, Please

    Hello ~

    I have been unavailable temporarily due to computer problems and being able to get a server. I guess internet traffic in my area was extremely busy or my isp's servers were down. I don't know what the problem was, but seems to be okay now. I will come back tomorrow and see what the fibro group can do. 

    Many blessings to you all,

    The New Year

    Friday, January 9, 2009, 12:10 PM [General]

    This year my resolution is to stay in better contact with my friends and family. I choose to resolve to turn my negativity into positivity. I also choose to not waste my days by sitting in front of my pc and not really getting anything done. My goal is to publish one book this year and to start submitting my articles for acceptance. I ask these things in my Father's Son's name, Jesus Christ, Amen.

    2008 was Great

    Monday, December 29, 2008, 2:04 PM [General]

    It's been a long and a short year. I'm getting organized more than ever and I re-enrolled myself with the Long Ridge Writers Group and am sending in my next assignment. I am excited to be actively writing again and my resolution for 2009 is to keep on writing and submit my work to be accepted for print. I will also finish my first poetry book and hope to have the funds to publish it myself! Amen! Another resolution is to write daily, no matter what comes out. I hope that anyone who reads this will check back in a few months to see what is happening. I am setting up a web site that will have all my info and works as well as other projects I want to do, like beading!

    I can't believe how fast time is flying. My last post was thirteen days ago... We didn't get the house because of the pest inspection report - there was sooo much wrong with the house! Thank You, Heavenly Father, for knowing what is best for my husband and I. I believe You have or are readying the perfect house for us (maybe the one we are in now) :) 

    I trust in the Lord and will not worry about it! It will happen in His time which is never late and is always perfect! The Lord has bestowed so many blessings in our lives! God is so good!

    So now I will concentrate on straightening out our finances so that we can get a great loan on whatever house we end up with. I am also concentrating on my writing. I have been battling the enemy in that area for quite some time and I AM going to win! I have had great trouble with my new pc, so I have been discouraged , but not given up! My husband and I have a plan - requires a little money and both our needs will be met.

    My children, who are grown now, are both in situations that need a lot of prayer. God knows their needs and I pray He can use me to lead them back to Him. It is my greatest wish that they will have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Lord, I ask that You clarify my mind so I may be a better servant to You. I know that You are the One who has gifted me with a talent for writing and creativity and I ask that You help me overcome whatever the stumbling block is. Thank You Jesus, for saving and loving me. Amen

    Wow, things are going fast with this house buying business! Today we meet with the home inspector and my husband is anxious to see what the inspector finds. It amazes me every time God has His hand in my business and I love it!! When I reflect on everything the Lord has done for me, I am always wowed at how much He loves me - a sinner, striving for perfection and failing miserably. I am just now coming out of the "fire" and am allowing Him to mold me into what He has planned for my life.

    Satan keeps trying to lie to me by telling me, "What if the financing falls through?" and "It really is too good to be true. You don't deserve anything nice." and little things like that. But I KNOW that satan is a LIAR!! And I refute all those thoughts that try to take me to disbelief and turn them into believing thoughts that God wants me to have His best blessings. His hand is written all over this house. Seems like every day I find out about more benefits being a disabled veteran. There are many, many benefits for veterans purchasing a home.

    I feel so loved by Him now - I didn't used to. I begged Him to show me His love for me. He brought me my dog, Jack. Best behaved dog I have ever met! And so patient with me. Then, all the things about my dream house are in this house we are purchasing, and then some!! God is so good!!! Laughing

    More later.....

    It's hard to believe that we are a quarter into the new year already! The weekend was pretty gloomy with yucky, drizzly weather and the mood inside the house was pretty much the same. However, on Sunday, my husband and I found a house we would love to make our home. We are going to put an offer on it tonight and then leave it in the Lord's hands - if it is His will, awesome! If not, then He is preparing the perfect place for us to be. But this house seems pretty perfect, just needs a little clean-up, maybe a little paint, etc. It is beautiful inside and has been well taken care of.

    Those of you following my journal, if any, I would appreciate all prayers for His wll, not mine, for our home. He knows our needs and our desires and I believe He will give us His best! Although we are comfortable renting where we are, our hearts desire has always to own our own home.

    I'd like to introduce you to my critters: Angel and Jack. They are each rescuees and each have interesting stories which I am thinking of writing some children's books about. I'll be uploading some more pictures in the next day or two so you can also see how adorable they are.

    Gotta run for now and make a grocery list and gather my coupons!

    My mood today is: kinda neutral. I don't want to get my hopes up in actually getting this house and then be let down - again!

    My pain level has been elevated since raking pine needles to burn last Friday. I paid for it over the weekend and am still paying for it today.

    Today is the first day of my journal where I will keep record of how I am feeling and what I am currently doing.

    I have been in quite a bit of pain lately, mostly back and neck pain, but I've also been plagued by migraines this week and wish I could get rid of the pain.

    Yesterday, I helped my grandmother (89 years old) gather information for her taxes. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw how much it costs to have her husband, whom has Alzheimer's, cared for just on a daily basis not including his drug expenses or insurance or anything else - just his basic daily living situation - close to 50K a year!

    Anyway, I want to get back to my writing assignment today and I also want to get started on a budget. My current mood is: Frown
