An update

Just a quick note each day brings renewed strength and hope for a soon full recovery! Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers!

I never gave to much thought about how much part the brain played toward my vision, (science was not my favorite subject) I just thought that if the eyes were working then you could see, well it doesn't work that way  and my brain is not telling my eyes to work together. I am told eventually it will all come together! Sue needs some patience, and I think God knows and understands this more than I do!

When I entered the hospital via emergency,was stabilized,given a room and doctor, (he probably realizied I was anxious ) he sat beside my bed an said " you know God made our bodies to heal themselves!" I agreed, he went on talking and all sudden he asked me if I was a Christian, I answered "yes", by this time we both were smiling the smile that only two believers could give each other. It was now time for him to go he took my hand prayed one of the most precious prayers I have ever heard prayed! It was not a short prayer but before he petetioned our Heavenly Father for my healing he gave recognition to who God was and quoted scripture verse after scripture before asking, I truly felt the presence of the Lord! God knew what and when  I needed His help He is always on time. This Dr was just a few minutes away from getting off his shift and was going to be away for seven days!

I wanted to have a pretty photo to show you so I stepped outside,these are my summer lilies they smell heavenly,  if I tell you a secret will you promise not to tell my dear sweetheart, I slipped and fell! That's okay I only hurt my pride and my shin! I am okay-smile-

Oh how wonderful that God sent that doctor to pray with you and reassure you in your time of need. Love that...
Now you be careful and no more falling! The flowers are beautiful.
Lord, continue to heal dear Sue and let her eyes work together as they are meant to. Amen.

Awe, Sue, how precious to have a Christian Dr. that prayed such a heart felt prayer with you. Oh, my, that is awesome! I'm praying for your complete healing and know that if I were in your shoes, I, too, would need a whole lot of patience. Blessings to you sweet friend!

I am so glad you have a Christian doctor. I will continue to pray for your complete healing and restoration.
Bless you dear Sue.

Deanna Rabe August 6, 2016 at 10:58 AM  

So thankful that God has his people everywhere!

I will continue to pray when God brings you to mind, sweet Sue!

Be careful, we don't want you to fall and break something!

Would you be willing to send me your address? I'd love to send a card!

Glad to hear from you, your lilies are just lovely.
Take care, God said He would never forsake us.
How is your mother? Sure she is anxious about her sweet daughter.

Dearest Sue, I am so glad you are getting stronger and recovering. I am so sorry you have had to experience all this! You are a darling lady and I will be praying for you! And what a blessing to have a doctor willing to share his faith and trust God for your healing!
Keep us posted...
Love, Roxy

Your post Sue is remarkable! That is wonderful about your doctor taking the time to sit, pray and look to God, our Great Physician. Your Spirit must have been at such peace. Praise the Lord!
Sorry about your fall, take care and go slow, sweet lady.
I will remember you in my prayers as God brings you to my heart.
Much love to you~~

What a precious gift to have a doctor who is also a believer and who prays for his patients!! I love our Father's good gifts to His children!

I am so glad to learn that you are continuing to improve. Take your time...no hurries...all in His time! (And no more falling! You don't want us to tell Mr. P, do you?) :)

Much love to you...

Stephanie August 20, 2016 at 12:45 AM  

Sweet Sue, how I have missed you! I was quite surprised to find this post, dear friend. I am so sorry for all you have been going through, but praise the Lord that you will recover and heal. Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers, dear one.

Sending lots of love and hugs your way!

Vee August 21, 2016 at 9:42 AM  

Oh that there would be more doctors like this precious one. God sent just the person you needed at just the right time. The Lord is so good to us. You keep right on healing and do be careful out there. It can't be easy getting around when the eyes are not working in tandem. Will pray specifically for that issue as you come to mind. I'm sure that I will be thinking of you all.day.long.

Debbie August 22, 2016 at 6:14 PM  

oh Sue I am soo upset that I missed this post as I have been watching, praying and thinking of you. Melody was here for a week with her kids and then last week my computer finally bit the dust. But we got a new one last sat and I am good to go. I am soo glad you are doing better and gathering strength. How hard this has had to be on you when you are always soo active. I can't tell you how pleased I am to hear that God sent that doc to you at just the perfect time, and that he took the time to pray with you and bring you comfort and peace. It does take a while for things to heal, but they will! Take care of yourself and keep on doing just what they tell you to do. I am praying for you as often as the Lord brings you to my mind....which is frequently! Much love to you!!

Well my eyes are flooding with tears. Benjamin and I have prayed for you...I told him you were having few health issues. This just makes me shout...BRAVO GOD! You have sown so many spiritual seeds into so many, and to see God reach down through the mouth of a doctor, well the tears are flowing He reminds me what Good hand you are in. You continue to heal..as the Lord does the healing. We love you and think of you often...so often.

Barb August 29, 2016 at 8:26 PM

Sue, as I mentioned in my last comment, I am so thankful and praising God with you for His love and care over you during this medical crisis. What a wonderful God we serve to bring a kind and caring Christian doctor to pray with you and give you peace. I love your pretty lilies. I'm so glad you are able to see and that your vision is improving. I will keep you in prayer. Kathi

Vee October 20, 2016 at 8:17 AM  

Just walking through Blogdom searching for my favorites who might be "out of the loop" for whatever reason. There are a number of you. Then I poke them. Aren't I nice? 😊 Love you and hope that all is well down there!

Missy October 25, 2016 at 12:50 PM  

Prayers for complete healing Sue!! How awesome that God sent a Dr. to pray such a beautiful prayer with you. Big Hugs!!

God never leave his child in danger. He will be with them always. Beautiful photo of the flowers:)

Post a Comment

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
