Answered Prayers

Bill let me sleep in this morning, so I awoke to hear someone cracking icetrays in the kitchen.  I began to be terrified lest it was Pamela having to take care of herself because her slothful Mom was sleeping!  I called out her name, but no answer, so I’m thinking that since her voice is almost gone to a whisper that I couldn’t hear her.  Anyway, I grabbed my robe, ran out of the bedroom, and there was my sweet husband tending to Pamela.  What a great Daddy!

Pamela is so much better this morning.  The pain is still bad, and the nerve block medication is gone, but she is way more alert, talkative, and even jotting notes for a housewarming party she wants to give to a friend next week.  It is so good to see her eyes bright, without the grogginess of medication.  She is in for a very hard week, since the PT hasn’t begun yet, but she is tough and determined.

Thank you all for your prayers.  The Lord is good all the time, and it is so good to see Him caring for His child who happens to by your child as well.

Have a blessed day!


About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    I hope Sis meant down hill from here. ha  She’s such a goose.  But I just posted the two precious pictures she found and sent me so I can not tease her right now.  I am so glad we have a God we can turn to for help and comfort.  I feel so sorry for people who don’t.  I want to call Marty so bad and ask if he took the boys to church this morning but that would be pushing it. ha  I talked to both boys last night and they promised me they would go.  I told Allen he has a very important job now as a newly baptised Christian.  His job is to show others that he is a Christian by acting like one and doing what Christians do.  That he has to set an example for other people.  He promised me he would go this morning.  Adam was easy.  I told him I heard he refused to go to church last time and why did he do that?  He said, “Oh, I just didn’t want to.”  I told him I knew he loved my church.  He agreed he did.  I told him he loved to ride the shuttle to church and he agreed he did.  Told him he loved seeing his friends at church.  He agreed.  Told him he loved to learn more about Jesus and to worship him at church.  He said he did.  I asked if he were going tomorrow (today) and he said, “Yes mam.”  I made him promise and he did.  I told him he would make Jesus very happy if he would wake up and be very helpful to Daddy to get ready.  And that Jesus was very sad last time when he heard him throwing a fit and crying because he didn’t want to go to church.  So!  We’ll see.  I told Scooter if Marty didn’t take them, I will have my next talk with him!!!!!
    Give Pam tons of love and kisses and tell her I will save the hugs until she can hug back!

    Again, I thank you. You’re a sweetheart. I was hesitant about putting my hissey fit on my xanga because I thought I would be judged and anyone reading it would think I was terrible. Thanks for the advice. I’ve already made things right with God and my husband. Unfortunately I’m not very quick at forgiving myself and starting over.
