Finally Fall Book Tag 9.25.19

Lord, reading through posts while I actually had a chance and enough energy and focus to manage comprehension I saw that Michelle of The Mimosa Blossom did the Finally Fall Book Tag, not too long after I had read Kathy of Katie’s Cottage Books had done her Finally Fall Book Tag (which was also Day 25 of Kathy’s 30 Day Writing Challenge she was doing). I saw they were both open nominations.

Thank you, Michelle and Kathy! May God bless you and your blogs!
Thanks for making it possible to share with others!
God loves you both!

Normally, I try not to do those as much as possible because I feel greedy when you have blessed me through many beautiful and generous souls. However on these two, you had me thinking differently.

You have whispered to me do them to keep “spreading the appreciation and tag somebody, and have fun,” and particularly because this one was regarding books! So many of my friends are into reading and/or reviewing them. And last but not least, to encourage others who want to do tags or awards that have open nominations to do them! Keep’em going! 🙂

So to thank both Michelle and Kathy, I will do the post together but with a book of Your bible to answer 1st, and then another book written by someone in the world that You have gifted! Then I will gift the friends You bring to mind who read/review books, and in case I forget someone I will leave the nominations open! 🙂


~ In the fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.

  1. Revelation! How could I not think of Your Revelation to John… the last book in Your Holy Bible. The white horse, the lady and the dragon, the angels, the seals, so much!
  2. The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. Wow! Did I feel so present reading that one! It opened my eyes to the real enemy and his tactics!

~ Nature is Beautiful . . . but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.

  1. Genesis was the first thing You brought to mind. There was no greater loss than when death entered into the world, and we were separated from You. A very heavy loss we still grieve every day until we get home.
  2. I wish I knew the name of the book and author You allowed someone from church to share with me in 2007 when my brother was killed at 37. It was written on Jesus resurrecting Lazarus, but told by a Christian who lost her brother, speaking on the pain and the importance of not bringing them back here. She said, “My Lazarus didn’t come back.” Yet reverently too.
    But since I can’t remember that title I will mention End Of The Spear by Steve Saint. His father Nate Saint along with 4 other missionary men were killed in 1956 in Ecuador by the Waodani Indians. Through God’s working Steve would become family to the Waodani. He later wrote God Doesn’t Waste Hurts, which shared the loss of his daughter and his 2012 accident that left him partially paralyzed.

~ Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.

  1. The Holy Bible as a book itself! Endless teaching that still continues.
  2. Two books here You have me thinking on are:
    How To Study The Bible And Enjoy It by Skip Heitzig taught me a great reading plan with study tips that are so easy to remember, keeps the whole bible fresh, and makes more sense of the chronological pattern and its difficulty.
    and The Endless Steppe by Esther Hautzig You used to teach me and my son that while American medicine teaches against dairy when sick, Siberians who are poor and struggle to have clothes and shoes during harsh winters conditions value most eggs and milk to prevent and treat pneumonia and bronchitis. My son and I learned these while he was struggling with a back to back round of bronchitis, as he did since a baby. It was true! It LOOSENS phlegm to get rid of it.

~ In order to keep warm, it’s good to spend some time with the people we love: Name a fictional family/household/friend group that you’d like to be a part of.

  1. The book of John has Jesus telling us about You as His Father God, and that we’re in the family too! I don’t have to wish it. I AM a child of God!
  2. I like being part of bible studies groups. They start off as fictional by the author and end up genuine. I’m currently a part of Redeemed by Angela Thomas-Pharr.

~ The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall-coloured spines.

  1. sorry, no pictures today. If there were I would show the stack of bibles that also has 4 composition books that are my copying Your bible.
  2. All my other books are stored away to where getting them out would be too physically challenging right now. I tend to read and pass them on any way.

~ Fall is the perfect time for story telling by the fireside: Share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.

  1. The book of Matthew is just one of the gospels told by a disciple. The Sermon on the Mount is in this book, where You also placed the Beatitudes.
  2. Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic is Nick telling of his being born without arms and legs. His journey of struggling… to a faith in God birthed a ministry that is embracing so many hurting souls. God does a mighty work in the reader to see those hurting souls need to return that embrace to Nick who they know cannot hug them back. They cling so tight and so long. God gives what we need by our giving of ourselves to others, through first giving ourselves to God.

~ The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.

  1. 1 Samuel tells of Saul’s creepy behavior toward David, and Saul “dark” enough to have priests killed. They started off as King and favored subject. Creepy thing to me, Lord, was David killing 1,000 Philistines to give their foreskins to Saul as a present and marry his daughter. When the people cheered, Saul got jealous over David’s popularity. David could be at dinner and suddenly find his father-in-law trying to spear him. Saul was obsessed with killing David. Saul and his sons died for getting a witch to bring Samuel’s spirit up from the grave.
  2. Foxe’s Book of Martyrs tells of different people really persecuted and killed because of professing faith in Christ. While we honor them and understand their courage, or at least following through no matter the cost, we also read what they suffered. Burned alive. Limbs falling off while still alive, and able to still sing or profess while burning. If it weren’t for what the book is about I wouldn’t normally read this kind of book.

~ The days are getting colder: Name a short, heart-warming read that could warm up somebody’s cold, rainy day.

  1. Philippians is a wonderful short book! So much faith, peace that passes all understanding, strength through Jesus Christ, and many lovely things full of virtue to think on. ❤
  2. Bloom by Caralyn of Beauty Beyond Bones (YES! A WordPress Blogger) uses her journey in an intake facility to battle anorexia to create a daily journal. One can either read it straight through as she tells bible passages that helped her, prayer for each day, and sharing wisdom and insight learned from finding Jesus in her journey, or one can read and note each day as the daily journal is designed, leaving room for one’s own notes. I was blessed to read as a bible journal.
    Thank You for the blessing, Lord!

~ Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.

  1. By Your grace and discipline, I once memorized the book of James. It has 5 chapters and such wisdom. I was blessed to learn from the memorization, and it helped me to make a testimony I didn’t even expect among believers and nonbelievers alike. I would like to try to keep that memorization… any word You will allow! ❤
  2. When God’s People Let You Down by Jeff VanVonderen was a book You led me to years ago when I witnessed severe hurts in the church, including several leader friends being fired from their church . I seriously contemplated quitting church because while I did not grow up in church, I saw enough the hurtful hypocrisy. This was different because now I was a mom who had a responsibility for a little boy who even had a heart to be a preacher as early as 3 yrs old. A friend gave me this book and after a few chapters I was cheering for us all! It’s Satan who is the enemy! We have to keep fighting the cause for Christ, not against each other!

~ Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories!”

warm, comfy fitting clothes (socks included), a blanket, maybe some hot chocolate or hot tea, in a comfy fitty chair or bed (or back and forth 😉 ) always a pen a note pad nearby, and healthy lighting for my eyes.

My Very Present Help

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”
– Psalm 46:1 KJV

 

Lord, I do not know in starting this post what it will be called. And I know I just posted the Share Your Passion Tag 9.27.19 and still have the notifications to do for the nominees while trying to stay awake, but I do know that I need to write this post to and for You! To praise You for what You have done for me in abundance recently, but especially for seeing me through the Transforaminal LESI (Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection) I had to have yesterday (Tuesday). LESI.1I was nervous because I had never had one done. I have had many friends and family who had them when having babies, and guys too for back issues. Yet they were always either they did not take despite how many they gave them, how they created pain and damage somewhere it never had before the epidural, and even paralyzed.

Just days before this epidural, I had a dear young friend who gave birth to her 3rd baby. Her husband was reporting she had an epidural because the baby turned breech at the last moment when time to push. Afterwards my friend struggled with severe headaches, neck pain so stiff she could not move her head, and blood pressures running 222/98. The whole in her spine from the epidural was not healing. They went back in and did a blood patch, and within 30 minutes it healed. Praise God she finally starting getting rest and truly healing.

But with all of this on my mind, I was also so stiff and in pain, moving as though I were 90 yr old with a walker again. My neck too gets stuck several times a day, needing a pop 8 out of 10 times because of my cervical issues). I’m on 2 blood pressure pills. Friends and family were noticing and asking things like what happened, are you going backwards, and I thought your new neurologist was good. I was hurting all day from my mid back, to my sacrum, to my hips, to my thighs, to my knees, to my calves, to my feet, and even to my toes. Every one of those parts had moments of weakness and completely giving out with no warning, sometimes multiple parts at a time.

In therapy they are always trying to get my body straight for certain exercises, good posture, and to properly support my spine. When they are working to help me they see I am truly trying, but my legs do not look like they are designed to go straight, as well as my back against the wall and stay there while I do the needed work. When they literally straighten it for me by physically forcing it straight and maintaining the hold, it causes severe pain, especially afterwards. I struggle to walk and within an hour or so cannot walk anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, sometimes taking a full night and day resting as much as possible, while using my walker to get up and down, to walk to use bathroom, and even to get up and down to use bathroom. And oh how it hurts to bend to try and clean myself, yet I still fail to be able to sometimes.

I say all of this, Lord, because today was the first Dr. B was realizing how “taxing” (his words) it was for me to use my legs to walk, to stand, to do just about anything while having to live in a world where I HAVE to. Yet when he told me to tell my doctor I had to sadly tell him again how they either just keep saying they don’t see why I really complain, or to tell him. He heard it. Just like last time. He does listen. I had to let him know the neurologist he sent me to (neurologist #7) told me not to be doing shots, but I was able to let him know I told her if it wasn’t for the shots I wouldn’t be walking, sleeping, standing, tolerating anything against my back (even a pillow), or anything. I let her know how grateful I was to You, God, for Dr. B. I had told her I was trusting You, and that You led me to someone who was listening and willing to DO what he could, therefore I was to trust whatever he said he needed to do.

Yes I heard the horror stories on those spinal nerve blocks we have done the last 3 years as well, and been told since I was 12 yrs old (the first time I woke up unable to walk and my back hurting, having to be carried to the car and into the hospital) to avoid surgeries, shots, chiropractors, or any back docs as much as possible because I would end up paralyzed. If I was able to walk, then just find something to use as a pain gauge to determine between I’m okay, I really need to sit down, or lay down and do NOTHING until my body allows me. No medicines. And my body could not tolerate cold because it stiffened it worse, increasing the pain and worsening the mobility. The heat seem to just magnify the feel of the pain. I learned to just quietly breathe it out… and not that funny breathing or any of that cry out in pain that just turned out to be more physical exertion. Natural patient breaths. Most of the time having to close my eyes and go inside with You, God, just patiently waiting.

That’s most certainly what I had to do yesterday with You! I don’t usually try to let people know I am in pain because I figure there is no point to burden others when they have their own burdens, and happen to be busy working or serving. I have to work hard at therapy and the doctor’s office because they always ask you questions that you are trying your best to answer to help the doctor, but to tell them WHAT is wrong, WHERE, WHY, HOW do you stop it, are reasons I am there to ask them to tell me. And I understand it is a 2 way communication street, but the strict insurance rules taking on playing the role of the doctor or even God, do not help. You, Lord, have allowed me to manage through the challenges of my spine for 47 years, but have made clear it is time to get answers, healing, help to know what won’t be healing, how to manage and maintain, and to learn how to better communicate to help my doctors.

This was my pain level coming in,
really for the last several months.
Even on the premed and my regular meds.
Especially when using the bathroom. 😦LESI.4It is most painful when I have to stand for more than a few minutes, like when making a lunch for Anthoni (my son) sometimes for work, or for Bobby (my 85 yr old stepdad) for lunch, or long enough to stand in the kitchen to even fix myself something. I have to lean against the cabinets, fridge, drawers, or shift from foot to foot. It is excruciating when standing for praise and worship at church (and I hate that because of how it steals Your praise, and never fails to get looks of me having attitude, a wrong heart, or even sinful).

And OH!! How I struggle to bend forward to clean myself. That’s embarrassing to say out loud, but I am trying to make this record before my memory fails me as it does every moment of the day. And the depression makes me feel like what’s the point of writing… that’s just trying, and what’s the point of trying if nothing’s going to change, except maybe for the worst. I am trying to openly praise You in a way to thank You for everything You did for me yesterday… in just by BEING THERE WITH ME! And because You often convict me and encourage me to be as open and honest as possible for my dear friends who are suffering their own chronic illnesses and the chronic humiliation that comes with it.

Like our Caz who just went through another excruciating time of her own in (A Very Mini) Mini Me Update), and her only way to escape was to share with us via WordPress, Facebook, email, and photos. The pain, agony, misery, and tears in one being bold enough to be vulnerable while feeling like nothing… to no one… just completely invisible no matter how strong the pain, how loud the shouting, or how honest the tears and anger. Hence the name of her blog and FB… Invisibly Me.

I think of her when I am on that table… praying for the face of the friend I seen in such agony… yet posting for those that she knew were going through their own things, and she wanted them to know they weren’t alone, telling them what rights they have at a time like that, and in those deep desperate eyes crying with the only ones she knows to care about her… to please still be there, please still see me… without you I have no one to see I exist… I am visible. I am here. Without SOMEONE on my side, Invisible is all I can feel. I don’t even see me anymore.

I think of and pray for
Wendi of Simply Chronically Ill,
Jill of Food, Feelings, Freedom,
Kourtney of Defining Yellow,
Caralyn of Beauty Beyond Bones,
Tasha of Pain Warrior Code,
Carol Anne of Therapy Bits,
Maxine of Heaven’s Reef,
Margaret of The Word who has been displaced from her home due to a hurricane months back, and found kindness in strangers who are lovingly sacrificing to provide shelter for her and her husband,
Jen of Jen’s Life,
Efua of Grace Over Pain,
Stu of Something to Stu Over and his beautiful children Brandon and Erin.

Dr. B was very patient, kind, compassionate, considerate, informative, insightful, and very careful with what he was doing. The numbing medicine alone when it kicked in with the premed and my regular meds, immediately decreased my pain down to moderate, but only because he was still working with needles and pressure.LESI.3Getting off of the table was much slower and challenging than it had been, but Dr. B has helped me many times come off that table in a careful manner, helping me to feel that my feet are on the ground, and that my feet can keep me upright with my head feeling like a floating bowling ball that I cannot control. I kept this face till I got out of the office and into the car. I believe it was really more about feeling ungrounded while trying to walk on it. But praise the Lord for all of that medicine. It was allowing my pain to actually accomplish this last picture representing…

NO PAIN!!LESI.2So many answered prayers, even if just for the moment.
But God, praise Your Holy name, I’ll take that moment!
And for as long as You will allow it! 🙂
So many have been praying for me, and still are.

I know the ladies of the bible study I am attending with Keitha leading (Redeemed by Angela Thomas-Pharr), the ladies of her church Gracepoint, and several who were attending the ladies banquet at Brown Barn the night before the Epidural are praying fervently for me. (Don’t let me forget, Father, to take my badge back with me for next Tuesday evening, hopefully undamaged)GB-Redeemed Badge

This picture below shows while I thought I was doing a good job of keeping some excruciating pain under control so that I wouldn’t burden anyone or disturb this awesome night out together in sweet Godly fellowship, actually made my face look like I didn’t care for my picture being taken, as if I were unsociable. I admit I didn’t FEEL like I was BEING sociable, but I still made every effort for Sarah and Keitha particularly!
(Sarah is to my right, and Keitha is behind the camera.)71555398_744552119318478_7337167265403502592_nBut I am trusting that You will restore to me the ability to genuinely show a smile that represents how truly grateful I am for these sisters in Christ who give so much of themselves… to strangers… to enemies… to persecutors… despite their own health issues (Keitha was wearing her knee brace for her poor knees, and was limping, but very much serving)…. they are doing it all for YOU! ❤

I had to miss this week because it began as I was leaving the doctor’s office.
I look forward to being with the ladies whenever You allow.
And I look forward to getting another Keitha hug! 🙂RLLBS.2019.5

As long as this post is, it still doesn’t give proper credit for everything You have been doing for me, especially yesterday afternoon! Thank You, God, more than anything for simply being there with me! When all I could do was keep my eyes closed, go inside with you, and with normal patient breaths keep telling You that I love You! Even when I could not focus to form words, You were still there. Holding my hand, reminding me of past trials and the faith You got me through with.

THANK YOU, LORD GOD!! THANK YOU!
PRAISE YOUR HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS, PROTECTIVE, COMFORTING SELF!
THANK YOU, HOLY SPIRIT, FOR CONTINUOUSLY TALKING WITH ME,
COMFORTING ME!
AND THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR MAKING AN INCREDIBLE SACRIFICE
TO SAVE ME FROM MYSELF,
FROM MY SINS THAT BREATHE DOWN MY NECK SOMETIMES,
FROM FEAR THAN TAKES ADVANTAGE OF WEAKNESS
LIKE ALL COWARDS DO.

❤ I LOVE YOU, FATHER GOD! 
❤ I LOVE YOU, JESUS CHRIST!
❤ I LOVE YOU, HOLY SPIRIT!

Extra Hours With You

gaillovesgodspoetry

Extra hours and the pen keeps pouring,
This is too important to be ignoring.
A message from You is just what I need.
I want to be careful to heed.
My listening ears opens my mind.
This message is one of a kind.
Though told me often and very familiar,
I cherish all that is similar.
A love note from my True Love
Sent from our heavenly home above.
Treasured I am by my Savior.
In Him, I have found favor.
Held in the arms of His heart,
Soon we will never again be apart.
Thank You for taking the time
To reassure my troubled mind.
Extra hours spent just being with You.
There’s nothing I’d rather do.

A Safe Embrace

gaillovesgodspoetry

Here I lean, Lord, in Your safe embrace
Wondering why I must leave Your loving presence
When all I want to do is stay… and stay safe.
Life calls us away, but at Your bidding.
You draw us out to this waiting challenge
That will bring us ever closer to You,
As it teaches us strength only hardship can bring.
I never desire to leave Your side,
But You show a deeper part of Your heart
Each time that You welcome me home.
Just when I think Your love is the strongest,
I find that You are stronger than I can imagine.
Thank You for being a love that is good.
I am so grateful for it.
I long for the day when I’ll never leave again.
