I Lost my Dustie about six months ago. Dustie is the Tan w/Black in the picture. He was 13 going on 14 years old. I could not write about it at the time…very…very Painful and still very, very painful, but can talk about it now. Anatolian/Chow Mix and a wonderful pack member. Never a fight, wonderful leader, always respectful, but fierce should anything threaten the pack. Excellent mixed Breed. I got him at 8 weeks old. He enriched our lives. He took care of my husband and let me know if anything was wrong.
Let me go on to another subject as I won’t be able to see my computer screen for the tears. Samatha is 40 lbs., in good health at 14 going on 15 years old. She was the leader of the pack, but Rom has replaced her. Zachary is 12 going on 13 years old and he was the leader, but Rom has replaced him. Remus is second in command and the peacekeeper of the pack. Zachary and Samatha love Remus more than Rom.
Dustie loved Remus as well. When Remus was a puppy, I had taken him out to the restroom and to let the puppies run for exercise, I came back into the house and Dustie was in Remus’ crate lying down in there. I got Dustie out, brought the puppies back in after their exercise and Remus fell asleep almost immediately. I think Dustie knew he needed extra assurance that all was well as Remus was the runt of the litter. Dustie never went into Roms’ crate. Dustie seemed to ignore Rom, but when Rom would come over to lick Dustie the gesture was accepted without rancor. Rom and Remus are 2 going on 3 years old and have taken their place as leaders of the pack and seem to love their job!
Dustie is Sorely Missed!
My Husband’s health is doing well. I took him to the doctor’s about a month ago and all seemed to be going very well. He still had the same issues, but all either has improved or is being controlled very well. He has so improved from the two baby strokes from 2008 that he does not want my help anymore. His doctor took him off a diabetes medication April of 2014 and that was the best decision for my husband as he has improved ever since. Now, I have to learn to let go.
When you have to shave someone because they can’t and have had to argue to get them to take a shower, as they were one of the cleanest people around before the strokes. He could do electrical, plumbing…could seemingly do anything, it is hard to let go after 7 years of constantly taking care of someone. I still watch his food choices and type of foods he intakes as he is Diabetic. I am letting go there as he is handling that area very well. I don’t want that empty nest syndrome again as I went into business and ended up with 5 dogs when my son left home. I am letting go, but watchful in case he reverts.
My Basil, Sage, Tarragon, Cilantro and Oregano are doing well in my buckets. I will make some Herb Bread when they are plentiful enough to harvest. I Dehydrate them as well.
I have a new subject that I wanted to write about, but I haven’t had time to research enough, so I will relate in a later blog.
As to my experience with healing, that is going very well. I was in great pain, and I did not take anything for it, as tears poured down my face, my temper got the best of me and I said, ” By the Authority given to me in the name of Jesus Christ, I command this pain to leave In the NAME of JESUS CHRIST and I will walk without pain…guess what…it worked”! I took a step after I said that and I still had pain, but I was angry, with tears flowing down my face, I took another step, and still had pain, then I took another step, and still had pain, but when I took the fourth step, I have not had pain in my back or hip since. Also, works may be working with a doctor as well…it depends upon the doctor.
I had X-rays taken that showed bone on bone in my hip…I thought I had something wrong with my back and went to the doctor to see if it could be fixed as I could not walk without pain. I was in such pain that I quit my business (cosmetology). I go for the X-rays and the doctor comes in and says I can fix your back but I cannot fix your hip…I said, “What Is Wrong With My Hip?” He proceeded to relate the bone on bone scenario. He said that he could send me to someone to fix my hip, but I told him that was out of the question as I had an allergy to metal. It has to be God or nothing.
I knew he was a Christian, but I didn’t know that he was on the board of my church or that he even went to my church. Because of my husband having issues from the strokes and the side effects of his diabetes medication I have not been able to attend a physical church for 6 years. So I had no idea that he went to my church.
I have watched CTN, TBN, INSP, BVOV, Daystar, etc for my church and associated with some of my customers who were believers until I had to quit work due to the pain in my back as for two nights I could not sleep much. I can not work without sleep. I work with scissors and chemicals and refused to work without much sleep. So in December 2014 I quit work. For three months after I quit I battled two allergies, Flu and Eczema. All I did was get up fix my husband food and give his shot, clean up the kitchen and go back to bed and sleep until I had to get back up and fix lunch and repeat. I had no idea my immune system was so impaired. I got rid of the flu first, then the allergies, but since I had never had eczema before it took seemingly forever to rid myself of that pest. I think it may have something to do with hormones and stress.
I Read and STUDY the WORD OF GOD, Tithe (Even on our Vegetables), Fast, Pray, Take Communion every day and make works show my Faith…that’s what I was doing when I was in Pain and I got up, mad as fire, and said what I said and began to take a step (works) then another step and another until the pain stopped. That is how I added works to my Faith (commanding the pain to leave in THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST).
The doctor is a believer and he AGREED with me in prayer, remember:
(Matthew 18:19-20, Again I Tell You, If Two of You on Earth AGREE ( Harmonize Together, Make a Symphony Together) About Whatever (Anything and Everything) They May Ask, It WILL BE DONE for Them by My Father in Heaven). (20) For Wherever Two or Three are Gathered (Drawn Together as My Followers) in (into) My Name, There I AM in the Midst of Them. Amplified Version of The Holy Bible.
*****NOTE: Also, I can’t ask what is not permitted in heaven…it has to be permitted in heaven. Know the Word of God. There are Qualifiers.
We pled the blood of Jesus Christ and I have only had some muscle pain since. I tend to overdo as I am doing things I have not done in 6 years. I have gone up and down ladders cutting off tree limbs, digging holes, planting plants, pulling weeds, pulling water hoses, packing boxes, pushing boxes, up and down ladders painting and prepping walls, etc. I have lost a whole pant size in a month and a half and still losing and I am not on a diet.
What was causing my pain was my hip (bone on bone), but the pain seemed to be coming from my back. The doctor said I was shifting my weight to the other leg causing my back to get out of alignment. I did not have any more pain from my back or my hip after my prayer with works, but the calf of my leg and the front and back of my thigh ached all the time. I had faith for my back and hip, but forgot the muscles.
I was doing exercises to strengthen my muscles and boy, did I have pain until I was reading Acts 14:8-10. I guess you don’t have faith until you need it. Now I was having so much muscle pain I could not sleep and I still wouldn’t take anything as I have seen too many people get hooked by satan by using pain pills as the bait. Since I am human and can be susceptible to the same thing happening to me and I did not want that. As I was reading:
Acts 14:8-10 (8)Now at Lystra a man sat who found it impossible to use his feet, for he was a Cripple from Birth and had Never Walked. (9) He was listening (remember, Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God) to Paul as he talked, and (Paul) gazing intently at him and observing that he had FAITH to be healed. (10) SHOUTED at him, saying, Stand erect on your feet! AND HE LEAPED UP AND WALKED.
After reading Acts 14:8-10 I suddenly realized I had not believed for my muscles and if this guy who had never walked…walked…then I could walk through faith and works…Faith believing the Word of God and Works, making myself walk by not trying…just doing…not thinking about it…just do it! Well, it worked! I had muscle memory working against me before and I limped all the time. Now I just walk, don’t have faith for heels yet, but that will be next on my agenda. I’m just happy to be walking without pain. Why it took me having to quit my job to have faith, I don’t know…unless I was so worn out I could not muster my faith until I had rested for three months…I don’t know. Thank You Jesus!
My doctor seems to be the same personality as I am. He has many interests, owns his own business, talks as much as I do, and I believe he may have a little bit of temper even tho I have never seen evidence of it as he seems even-tempered as I am, but instinct tells me he is no push-over and neither am I.
I will take a lot, but enough is enough and I won’t take anymore as something will be done about the situation or I will fast and pray and do what I can to remedy the situation and what I can’t do I leave to God. He seems to be the same personality. I know he is trustworthy and will do what he can to help me get better and does not fear losing a patient to wellness. His mission is to help get you well or I should say his calling is to get you well. I have only been going to him for 3 1/2 months and I am down to one visit per month. I started out twice a week.
I have never been too trusting of doctors as I have seen too many of my acquaintances family members on 25 or more medicines…just think of all the side effects of all of those medicines and given by doctors! That being said we have to have doctors as they have more knowledge than we do and their imput is important to our health and wellness. I ask a lot of questions and research myself when the diagnoses and drugs come into play.
I find it remarkable in some doctors that instead of trying to put you on medications or selling you something else they really try to help you get well.
When I went to sign up for social security as I am of age, even the people at the social security office tried to get me to go on disability and I refused as I would never get well as being sick would stop me from having faith as I would get paid to stay sick. I do not fault others for doing that, but I do not want anything to interfere with my faith and just the thought of doing that seemed to interfere with my faith. I want to continue to read The Word of God and stay free as it works. I went a long time…6 years not having faith and I thought I had faith. I never had the enlightenment of faith and works as I had in this instance.
