A Difficult Time For Me….

A Difficult Time For Me...

The last several months I have not been feeling well, but have persevered on, and was able to be active with my  blog.

Yesterday my health took an unexpected turn.
Actually I was blindsided, results from a Cat Scan took my illness in a whole new direction.  I now need all my energy and focus to tackle what lies ahead for me.

I wanted to let you know that I a taking a break, I just can't focus on anything else.

Isaiah 41:10, 13-14
Fear thou not; for I {am} with thee: be not dismayed; for I {am} thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’” Fear not, you worm Jacob, You men of Israel!I will help you,” says the LORD And your Redeemer, the Holy one of Israel.

Please keep me in your prayers,

I shall miss you all, and know I haven't been around to visit only because of this situation.

PS...there will be no Sunday's Best Par.ty this month  (tomorrow)!

  48. Sweet Cathy ~ I was so saddened to hear this. Please rest in the knowledge that you will have many many prayer warriors out here lifting you up in prayer. In my "Jesus Calling" book today it said, "Refuse to worry! The best defense is continual communication with Me, richly seasoned with thanksgiving. Awareness of My Presence fills your mind with Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear. Live close to Me!"

    You are in good hands, my friend ~ and you are loved!! Peace and love to you, sweetie.

    xoxo laurie

  66. Laurel @ SoPo Cottage says:

    Cathy - sending positive thoughts and energy your way. Hope you're on the mend quickly and we'll be hearing from you soon!

  67. The verse you quoted was the one God lead me to when my husband asked for a divorce 5 weeks after the birth of the son we had prayed for the past five years. God was true to his word over and over again in the 15 years since. I prayed for my children, their health and education--my daughter is a college graduate working on her Masters while working full time and the little babe is nearly 15 and a 6'3" honor student. I prayed to survive the heartache that I thought would kill me--and I have. I will be praying for you and yours.

  68. was looking my list of blogs that I check out and said a prayer for you today.... know that whatever you're facing there are many saying prayers of healing and peace on your behalf.....

  69. Cathy, thinking about you.

  70. Oh, Cathy.... I'm so sorry to hear this. My prayers are with you! I pray the Lord will comfort, bring you strength and joy! Lord, heal my friend, Cathy!

  71. Cathy, I just stopped by and found your post tonight. I wanted to let you know you are in my prayers! God is faithful and He will hear our prayers of faith! Be strong in the Lord! Blessings, D
