    I need a hug and some encouragement.....

    Here I am again ladies........

    We've entered a new phase in my disease....... besides all the pain I already have, I have a new pain in my shoulders, especially my right shoulder.....
    I have been to the doc twice, tried physiotherapy (exercises that only seem to make it worser) but no one can take away the pain........ so I have to get used to it again and that's a long and painful process........
    I can't sleep with it at night and have trouble getting through the day..... I am trying hard to read my Bible (and succeed there, thank God) and to study a bit...... but the pain is distracting and when I can, I sleep in the daytime to catch up on sleep.......

    Anyway, it's a difficult period for me and Charles..... for Charles as much as for me, as he feels bad not being able to do something about it..... so actually we both need a hug and encouragement.........

    Love you all,
    Glorious Day
    Living He loved me
    Dying He saved me
    Buried He carried my sins far away
    Risen He justified
    Freely forever
    One day He's coming
    Oh Glorious Day!

    Miepie and Chal I am sending you both huge hugs... You will not be tested beyond what you can deal with but I know it has to be hard and for that I am so very sorry...Someday....this will be far behind you both and you will feel no more pain and shed no more tears....
    The story of Job teaches us that the Devil has to be given permission to attack us. So if God is allowing the attack surely He's planning our victory. He would not allow us to be in a battle we could not win.! God looks for hand-picked people He can send into difficult environments, that He might be glorified. He makes all things "work together for good" (Ro 8:28) so don't be intimidated. Just keep your eyes open and see what God is up to!

    <--- for Charles <----- for Mieke

    I can't imagine what you and Charles are going through, but I do know that you two are incredible examples of strength in Christ. You two live out the teachings of Christ. You praise Him through your suffering and continue to live for Him daily. That's an incredible thing! I read verses on a daily basis that I feel you and Charles are perfect examples. Just this morning I was reading 1 Thessalonians 4:11 ("Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands") and thinking of all the ways that verse describes your life.

    I love you both so dearly. I am so thankful for your faith, optimism, encouragement for others, and much much more! You are such a wonderful sister in Christ that I look up to greatly!

    I am so sorry you're experiencing so much pain. There's nothing I can do or say to take that away, but I do bring you and Charles before the Lord daily and think fond thoughts of you all the time!

    Love you sister...

    Many hugs for you both Mieke, Even though we don't chat much anymore, you both are in my thoughts always and prayers.
    I will never forget the talks and laughs we shared and what a special dear person you are. All my cards are put away except yours which is on my desk right next to me!

    Just a reminder from one more how special you are.
    9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Hey miepie I was praying for you and Chal last night....I asked God to take away your pain as I usually do...but then I got to thinking this prayer wasn't good I prayed if that wasn't possible...for whatever reason, the Lord help you both to get through encourage you and love you through it.

    I am giving you both an internet hug! I truly wish you didn't have to deal with it...

    Also do you have the bible on tape or a CD that you could relax, close your eyes and just listen too? I know when I don't feel good its really hard to read anything and focus on what I am reading. Listening to someone else read though is very calming and smoothing though.

    Praying for you both always...

    "People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

    Life is not about waiting for the storms to's about learning to dance in the rain. ~~anon

    This morning when I wakened And saw the sun above,
    I softly said, 'Good morning,Lord,
    Bless everyone I love'
    Right away I thought ofyou
    And said a loving prayer ,
    That He would bless you specially,
    And keep youfree from CARE & PAIN,
    I thought of all the happiness
    A day could hold in store,
    I wished it all for you because
    No one deserves it more.
    I felt so warm and good inside,

    I know God heard myprayers for you,
    He hears them all, you know.

    My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16

    "Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)

    I hope you will feel better, and that all your going through will find a end. Pain is no fun and I can't imagine yours.
    I pray God will be with you.
    Don't be afraid of the shadows, that just means the light is close!
