Thanks for the prayers everyone. Mieke is having a hard time today and so is sleeping off and on most of the day. I think that is best for now. She needs to have as much strength as possible to deal with her pain and sleep is probably the only medicine she hasn't built up a resistance to.

My arthritis is acting up from the weather getting cooler, but it pales in comparison to what Mieke is dealing with today.

I am sorry to hear that...I will keep you both in my prayers! Wish you could move to a warmer, drier area! Might help you both.

Praying! :pray:

Hi, Lisa;

Dear Mieke, I know what it's like to think you've reached the end of your rope, but I've also discovered there's always enough to land us in the Everlasting Arms of our Saviour . . .

:pray: that you both get the rest and strength and Peace you need to raise your spirits . . .

Thank you for sharing your talent with me, sending me the most lovely card...with delicate lavendar and tiny pink flowers made just for me. :)Only Jesus knew how much I needed it.

Your card blessed me and reached me at such a difficult time...like a life preserver thrown out to one at sea...encouraging refreshing making me feel important valued loved. Your kindness reminded me,
We are loved with a never ending, never failing love... and He is always near, we are never alone.

....Thou the hill is steep I hear a sweet song encouraging me along my way. He tells me how much He loves me and I drink deep of his thoughts of me as his presence lingers on...

But suddenly I see now how the path has narrowed and there is only room for him and me. I looked at him bewildered, but Lord how may I help others there is no room but for you and me...

"My child, here you will walk safest with me alone."

For a time, no friend I saw, but Jesus alone. I leaned on this Holy One who tenderly led me on...


Bless you dear Sister when tender alone times with Jesus come...purposed and set apart ...for you alone where safest you will be. :hug::kiss:

chal> Hello and thanks for the prayers and concern. I'm Charles. My name on the board is chal, my wife Mieke is miepie on the board. She is the one with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy) and I have Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. She is experiencing pain from the RSD. She is already taking the maximum amount of painkillers the doctors are willing to allow and any raising of that dosage would be a temporary solution at best. I am her main caretaker, so when the weather gets bad (cold and damp) and my arthritis flares up it's hard to keep up with our daily routine. We ask for prayers mainly for strength and patience to deal with our situation in the way God wants us to. We pray daily for His leadership and appreiciate all those who join us in this. We also like to hear when our brothers and sisters who are joining us in prayer need prayer themselves, so that we may pray for them as well.

Charles, thank you for sharing the information. As winter comes on, it must get more difficult for you! My prayers are also going up for both of you.

:hug: :pray: :kiss: :hug:

Mieke is still not doing well physically, but is dealing with her pain much better than a few days ago. In her words;
I'm trying to put my life back on track with the limited possibilities I have. I'm studying a lot, with lots of rest in between. I'm learning to rely more on Daddy. Me, I'm hanging around waiting till the weather gets better, but sometimes it seems like warm sunny days are few and far in between. Please pray for sunshine and blue skies. Thanks for the prayers. We love ya'll.

I just dropped in to remind ya'll that we appreciate your prayers very much. Mieke is sleeping and I'm chilling out on the computer, like a cyber-potato. We had company for most of the day and both of us are burned out to a crisp. At least we didn't have to leave the house though. That's always a plus, especially on a day like today, where the weather kept cycling through extremes. It went from raining to a short period of sunshine to hailing and back to sunshine, for a while before sundown. maybe the prayers for sunshine are coming in incremental installments.

It only hurts when I move or breathe, so I'm vegging out. I wish I could give a better report after all the praying ya'll do for us, but what I can truthfully say, is that I believe without those prayers along with our own, it would be much worse and at times they seem to be all that is holding us up. We are also praying for ya'll and thanking Daddy for your support. Dawn; Morpie misses you terribly too. :hug:

This is Charles typing for Mieke. We've been to the doctor and Mieke has a bladder infection for which penicillin was prescibed (which makes he nauseous). She also has tennis elbow and something wrong with the joint of her shoulder, that causes friction when moving (in the same arm). Without movement, the tennis elbow takes about 2 months to heal. The shoulder problem however, takes several months. Please continue to pray for her as the arm is very painful. Typing will be done by me until further notice (so no talking behind my back!).

Mieke, during my quiet times I've jotted down a few verses this past week that made me think of you. I thought you might like to hear them. :hug:

"You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light." - Psalm 18:28

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:31

"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." - Romans 8:18

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." - James 1:2-4

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:38-39

I also stumbled upon this poem. Hope you enjoy it!

A Bend In The Road
When we feel we have nothing left to give
and we are sure that the song has ended,
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
and the darkness of night has descended,
Where can we go to find the strength
to valiantly keep on trying?
Where can we find the hand that will dry
the tears that the heart is crying?

There's but one place to go and that is to God,
and dropping all pretense and pride,
We can pour out our problems without restraint
and gain strength with Him at our side.
And together we stand at life's crossroads
and view what we think is the end.

But God has a much bigger vision,
and He tells us it's only a bend,
For the road goes on and is smoother,
and the pause in the song is a rest,
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
is the sweetest and richest and best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger
let go and let God share your load.
Your work is not finished or ended
you've just come to a bend in the road.

-By Helen Steiner Rice-

He got antibiotics from the doc but it takes time to get over it..... in the mean time he lost his voice, which I don't like at all........ :rolleyes:

Sorry ya'll are feeling so bad.

I used to get a sore throat about 3 to 4 times a year. Then the doctor
decided it was time to get my tonsils taken out. I was 27 at the time. I went
to the hospital that morning for the surgery. I had to wait in line with 4
five year old's to get weighed.

I came out of surgery with stickers all over over my hospital gown. The
nurses picking at me in recovery told me you were so brave! :lol:

Those five year old's recovered better than I did, they were sitting up in
bed eating popsicle's and watching T.V....I felt like I got hit by a train.

We're prayin for ya'll, :pray:

My dad has the results of the test and they found something on one side that could be the beginning of cancer, so they test him again in two months......
My mom doesn't know results yet, they took quite some blood from her yesterday but the rheumatologist said it could be her thyroid as she has problems with that........
Charles is still coughing after his throatinfection so I am taking him to the doc tomorrowmorning......
and finally me, I am doing very badly, my arms hurt like crazy in the night and I can't sleep.... we're trying to change some meds to see if that helps, but not much can be done..... a friend of my parents has a special diet that should help a bit, so I am going to try that when I get it.... the diet I was following was too strict and had no results.......

So far the update....... please continue to pray for us..... :cry:

I am very relieved to say that the prayers worked after we changed our sleeping habits around a bit...... (like heating up my bed a little bit with hotwater bottles) and changing into a better diet from Monday should help out too..... :) If that doesn't work we're going to see if it is in God's Will to find a homeopathic doctor...... :) at least we're doing something useful again! :pp

Do seriously consider if the work of the seriously unGodly man who invented Homeopathy - which is in effect taking one single drop of 'medicine' and putting it into many thousands of gallons of water made into tablets or drunk - can possibly be endorsed by the Living God. . . .

I suspect that, like acupuncture, homeopathy only 'works' if you have faith in it, and/or the spirit behind it.

We have to postpone the diet though...... wanted to start this week, but Charles gave me his throatinfection (although not as severe, thank God!) so I'll postpone that another week...... hopefully I'll be better by then..... :pray:

Sorry we didn't do the same. We're both sick with a virus/sore throat thingie and haven't been keeping up with anything.

Mieke and Charles:

Even though I'm not able to be on the boards on a regular basis like I would like to be, I think of you often and wonder how you are doing. It is evident that you have been such a huge blessing to so many on here, myself included, so I just wanted to say thank you and keep it up. God will richly reward you for your faithfulness, love and compassion. I do pray that God will completely and totally heal you from all disease, illness and sickness, and whether that healing comes in this life, or if you have to wait until the next life for it to completely manifest itself, that is entirely up to God. Either way, He is completely trustworthy, and will never give you more than you can handle with His help. Continue to lean on Daddy, as you have been doing, and He will never let you down. :hug: to both of you.

Yours in Christ,

Benjamin

He still has some arthritis problems though due to the weather....... so prayers are appreciated there......

I have been to the familydoc this morning because my shoulder hurts more and more and it's more or less inflamed.... so I'm taking more meds and the physiotherapist is coming Tuesday for exercises with my shoulder, which is limited possible due to my dystrophy and my tenniselbow... :hmm: It could take several months for it to clear up....... sigh..... :rolleyes:

Even though many a night I can't sleep because my bladder hurts too much or my shoulder/arms, I am very peaceful....... not that I can understand it, but I don't have to...... Daddy does and that's important!

I am not doing any better, in fact the pain in my right shoulder is getting worser, it's now keeping me out of my sleep..... :cry:
The doc can't do anything about it, and the physiotherapist can only give me exercises which make it worser in the end....... she's coming back on Monday, but that will probably be the last time....... :cry:
My legs hurt a lot too..... I'm wearing the long legbrace that keeps my leg straight day and night now, that seems to help a bit..... but for my other left leg I don't have a brace so that one still hurts..... but not nearly as much as my right shoulder......

Thank you for praying.... :hug:

We already are overwhelmed by God's Love..... He's faithful to us...... without Him I wouldn't have made it this far...... when I couldn't go on anymore, He brought me a husband that not only loved me but also wanted to take care of me 24/7 day in, day out..... He is also blessing us in various ways.....

The trouble is that I have a disease, RSD, that is fatal in the end and is giving more and more trouble with my joints and organs..... so it's not strange that the docs can't do anything about my pain in my shoulders, especially my right shoulder..... it will take time to get used to this pain, on top of all the other pain I have..... I am just asking for this process to progress quickly so I can go on with my life and sleep better (didn't sleep at all last night).....

Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom

Ephesians 1:15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord
Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for
you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and
revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what
are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is
the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to
the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He
raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly
places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and
every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to
come.
22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all
things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all
in all.

If you put the OT study in the Biblestudy forum let me know.

I am also studying the sequel of the book that thought me how to study the Bible and how to journal it...... it's about spiritual warfare....... teaching me a lot too....... very difficult at times but very good for me........

I can also have my armbraces off a few hours a day, where I can do maybe a little embroidery (don't know if I can yet, but I'll try) and type a bit here...... Also we're springcleaning and I love to see the room more empty..... making other people happy with our things..... or putting away stuff for the fancyfair of our church at the end of March...... :) I have lots of plans of decorating the house again, but with lesser things...... :)

Please pray that I can stay this positive, pray for more energy and that the pain stays at this level or goes down...... no matter how positive I am, the pain is always a stumbling block..... also pray for Charles whose having a hard time with the weather and has to deal with a wife full of springcleaning ideas....... :D

:pray: that you both receive relief for the pain and His Peace. . .

also, I came across this poem this morning that made me think of you and Blessed me, it's by Amos R. Wells . . .

"God laid upon my back a grievous load,
A heavy cross to bear along the road.
I staggered on, and lo! one weary day
A lion sprang across my way.
I prayed to God, and swift to His Command,
the cross became a weapon in my hand.
It slew my raging enemy and then -
became a cross upon my back again.
I reached a desert and o'er the burning track
I persevered - the cross upon my back.
No shade was there, and in the cruel sun -
I sank at last and thought my day was done.
But lo! the Lord works many a Blest surprise,
The cross became a tree before my eyes.
I slept. I woke. I felt the strength of 10,
I found the cross upon my back again.
And so through all my days from then to this,
the cross, my burden, has become my bliss.
Nor ever shall I lay my burden down,
For God, someday, will make my cross a crown.

Just wanted to let ya'll know, although Mieke is still not doing too good, I woke up feeling as though I twisted my ankle, but it went away after a few hours of moving it. The weird thing about it is that it was on a leg that has a plate in it and some dead nerves that extend almost to my toes. Usually I don't feel anything in that area of that foot, even if it really is twisted. Usually, I can only tell something is wrong, if it's bruised and I can see it.

This morning I wasn't sure whether to praise God for restoring those dead nerves, or for Him to take away the hurt, so I held my peace. It seems He did both! Now I know exactly what to praise Him for (both) and what to ask Him for (to help Mieke, especially with her shoulder, range of motion of her arms and her stomach).

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

PS Frances, it's always Spring indoors, if you keep the heat adjusted right.

From "chal's Dictionary of Adjustable Wordlings for Me and People Like Me"

Explanation of the Five Seasons
Two Springs, Three Winters

Spring: 1.) A season that occurs only indoors and then only if the heating is adjusted right. 2.) A small curley metal thingie that looks kinda like a slinky (NO, NOT Slinky Junior, it's even smaller than that). Also called the "Slinky Season," by some insane Slinky enthusiasts (not that all Slinky enthusiatats are insane, mind you).

Winter: 1.) A season that happens out of doors and should be avoided at all costs. 2.) A season that happens out of doors, has no affiliation with Slinky or Spring mechanisms and should be avoided at all costs. 3.) See entries one and two.

chal> Well, a little after I posted that, I felt a slight twinge of pain there, but when I got up and walked on it for a while it went away. I think it's arthritis, because with a twisted ankle, movement and especially putting weight on it make it worse, but with arthritis, movement helps. Still doesn't explain why after all these years, I have feeling there. The plate in my leg is from a motorbike accident that happened when I was fifteen. Thanks for the prayers.

Thank you my friend...... Jesus is watching over us..... holding us in His Arms...... :pray:

Charles still has problems with the weather...... it's affecting his fingers and hands and arms mostly but sometimes also his feet and back......
I'm not doing great either...... I lack energy and sometimes am exhausted (especially after visits, no matter how much I like them) so I am trying Spirulina, which should help with that hopefully...... the cause is my meds, my patch and my disease which is slowly progressing...... but if I don't try something, I'll never know if something would help against that...... it's a good bodycleanser anyway, so that's good too...... :)

Please continue to pray for us...... we're still having a hard time......

Love you all,
Mieke :kiss:

We're having much difficulties here...... Charles has still problems with his arthritis, due to the cold/dampness/rain/snow and more of that stuff.... Even with the cancellation of the baths, only going out of the house once a week, I am still doing rather badly....... having lots of pain and signs of exhaustion due to that...... we're hoping the Spirulina will help with the exhaustion but I only recently started it, so we have to wait and see....... if it doesn't work, then at least we tried something to do about it.......

Please continue to pray for us....... :pray:

Still not going great here...... Charles says he feels pretty good for a lumberjack (he's demolishing our Christmastree).... :lol: crazy guy........ he does add that he doesn't know how a lumberjack feels..... :hmm:
I'm not doing great at all..... still having lots of pain, and having had the rat here (the girl of Assisted Living that nobody likes) doesn't help either...... she pushed on my bladder to bandage it and that was not so nice........ I already had bladderpains so that didn't help at all....... :rolleyes: I'm still exhausted too...... we have to go out tomorrow to do our shopping and I am not looking forward to that...... sure it will be nice to get some fresh air, but all the hassle around it with the elevator and stuff is no fun......... sigh...... oh well, it's only once a week.....

Charles is not doing too bad today...... he has some arthritispain and is a bit tired, but he's been cooking half of the day, so that's no surprise........
I was a bit depressed this morning........ but after a talk with Charles I felt better and decided to continue my study in Romans....... I did 8 chapters today and finished it...... I document everything including difficult words and passages so that when I read it again, I know again what it was about.......
I have a lot of pain though, but I was so busy with studying that I didn't pay any attention to it....... now it hurts...... but we're almost ready to eat, so I'll get over it.......

Today it seems to be a little better, as long as I don't move too much..... I am already a little bit on the diet, and try to eat foods that don't irritate the bladder as much as possible, so maybe this is the result of that...... I have some things that I need to eat/drink because Charles don't like it and they were too expensive to throw away, but after that I am on it completely, which will probably be next Monday....... :)
Charles is doing ok..... he's in his cleaning mood; cleaning the birdcage and the floor and doing laundry in between (I just got him some new cotton shorts that he wanted to wash immediately! :lol:) so he's quite busy........ it's rainy today but the weather is warmer and he's definitely a little better because of that...... :)

Thanks Mike & Frances..... :hug:

The visit of my parents was not long, but very nice...... they came around 11:00 am and left around 2:00 pm...... then we took a long nap and now Charles is busy cleaning in the kitchen, preparing to cook our supper.......
I am having bladderpains again, but if I am quiet and calmly laying down most of it is gone away, it's just sitting up that hurts.......
Please continue to pray for us........ :pray:

Love you all,
Mieke :kiss:

Thanks Mike :hug: Please continue to pray as we still have problems....... we're going down for a nap after we drink tea (we just ate lunch)...... Charles has been cooking the whole day so far so he's ready for a nap....... for me it's good to lay down anyway..... I spend more and more of my days laying down...... I dislike that a lot, I want to do things sitting up.... maybe it's Daddy's way to lead me to be a better prayerwarrior, I don't know...... in that case I'm like Paul kicking against the prick... :eek:
I think a lot about you and mom Mike, and pray for you two and Lorie...... :hug:
Thanks for praying for my bladderpains..... it still hurts, but I do better when I lay down, but wanted to answer you here and in the other thread first..... :hug:

Love you lots,
Mieke :kiss:

He is Mike..... Jesus is watching over us all....... it's the only way to survive a disease or sickbed....... I know you know that....... :hug: I can't imagine having to do all of this without Daddy....... He's the Light of my life and I would be very lost without Him....... :pray:

Thanks Mike for the prayers...... prayers going up for you too..... :hug:

Love you lots,
Mieke :kiss:
