Prayer Request Sunday March 11th

He Gives you "A" HOPE

I'm Back...
Blue Screen of Death......RIP Gmama's DELL

Gmama goes off the grid, out of touch with the cyberworld she's grown to depend on, love, and spend too much time "pinning", blogging, g-mailing, Facebooking, Words With Friending, etc, etc, etc...

WELCOME HOME Ms. HP you little All-In-One Great Price Beauty that I can't live with nor without but once I figure out how to navigate your minefield of new traps for the Gmama to get lost in I might just grow to love you like Mr. Dell.

It's Prayer Request Sunday Once Again
1. Praise & Thanksgiving for surviving yet another brush with an F-3 Tornado and live to tell about it!  Many of our church family received property damage but no loss of life or serious injuries.  3 of our local schools received extensive damage while students and teachers sat huddled in hallways with books over their heads praying for safety.  Many of the same students lost everything in last Aril's storms and the younger storm victims had serious panic attacks while the storms approached.  Teachers had their plates full keeping children safe while worrying about their own children's safety.  Friday, March 2, was a challenging day to say the least and this is only the beginning of Spring Tornado Season in the South.

2. BABY MAX is progressing so well, he may get to go home soon!!!  His parents are so very grateful for your prayers!  Max is a living Miracle!

3. Josie M.  remember friends and family from last week.  I do not have an update.  Josie hopefully will give us a progress report soon.

4. Beverely "b" was one of the Give-Away winners who also continues to need our prayers for her husband who is recovering from yet another surgery after a serious injury has left him disabled.  I loved it when she told me how happy he was about her winning my Give-Away!!  b needs encouragement my friends!!

5. Kaaren from The Painted Quilt, Nova Scotia, Breast Cancer and has returned home to rest before taking on more treatments.  I'm not quite sure if it's chemo or radiation at this point.  Kaaren is a wonderful artist and gives away a free downloadable embroidery pattern of her design each month.  She's a terrific lady and this cancer was NOT in her plans...is it ever???

6.  Jannett  Have not heard an update so continue to pray for her family and friends touched my health problems and cancer

7.  YOUR PRAYER REQUEST INSERT HERE!!!  PLUS, Updates on past prayer requests are always a blessing ...we want some Praise and Gratitude Reports too!!!

What are your plans for this week?  I'd love to hear what your week looks like.  Any sewing projects on the Design Wall??

As for me:
Sidekick Scott is spending the week with his other Grandparents since I was originally scheduled to go to QUILTFEST in Pigeon Forge TN like last year.  I was so excited but we found out that my husband could not take the 5 days off school without jeopardizing his retirement date and final paycheck.  Long story but you know how red tape goes...Blah, Blah, Blah..  Oh well, I have a whole week to sew in my own sewing cave and hopefully get some UFO's marked off my To-Do List.  I'm a cup is half full kinda gal so I'm Ok with Plan B.

I hope to clean my porches and wash the Winter off so Spring can come on in!!  BTW, does the new time upset your body clock??  I'm usually whining for 2 weeks once the time changes not because I don't love the extra daylight in the evening but because my sleep patterns get even MORE jumbled up.  

Gotta schedule a Sleep Study!!  I need you guys to NAG ME and not let me off the hook about getting this SLEEP study DONE!!!

Love to All...Your Comments Keep me blogging, your quilting/sewing projects keep me inspired, and your blogs keep me on the Computer way too long but I love reading each one!!


  1. Welcome to your new computer. Learning how to work all the bells and whistles might be a challenge if your brain works like mine.

    My second grandson, Ben,(almost ten) had a seizure this morning and was rushed to the hospital. CT scan and other tests came back normal but he is scheduled for MRI and EEG next week. Ben has had many challenges in his short life and his father says he is handling it with glum stoicism, still the family would welcome encouraging thoughts and prayers.

  2. So happy you're back with your brand new computer! And a WHOLE week to sew is quite a blessing!

  3. Good morning Jane - so glad you have a new computer and can get back to your normal routine! I started working in my sewing room yesterday - got home Tuesday night but it took till then to get all my errands run and family to see. It's a mess! I've started cleaning and plan to do a good bit of weeding out. I'm going to bite the bullet and get rid of some of my older fabric. I have more than I can sew up in my lifetime and it's taking up space. Besides if I get rid of some and have some room I might accidentally find some new fabric I love and can't live without. :) I did get one little table topper made for Madame Samm's April bloghop. It's too cute! I hope to make several more. And I got the February Harrington and Hannah BOM fused and ready for the hand sewing. Oh, and one more, I got the March block done for Whimsical Garden (that's one I'm doing from a pattern I have). I need to get the Promises BOM for February and March traced off too but not sure I'll get that done today. I have lots of handwork waiting on my chair for me. My brother-in-law, Mike, suddenly lost the sight in his right eye last Friday. There's no known cause and no cure. He's trying to get into Johns Hopkins for a rehab unit for people with low vision to help him make this transition, and doing various other things to try to make sure he doesn't lose the other one. Prayers for him would be welcomed. Enjoy your week off! blessings, marlene

  4. Good morning Jane. I am replying from my new HP-small world, eh! Glad it was all that you lost in the storm. Pictures last week of your grandpeeps in their storm shelter really make it hit home. Prayers for all to find the strength to endure.

  5. Aunt Rita and Uncle Bob are doing well. So far so good for The Miracle baby. I am sad to report that my cousin Jennifer's brain toumor is cancer. She will begin chemo in the coming weeks. Please continue to pray for her!! Thank you!

  6. Have fun working with your new computer and sewing this week. I will be working on quilts for my little girls', "Big Girl Room." They will be three next month. I will be praying for the intentions from your blog, including the those in the comments sections!

  7. The time changes totally throw me off, as well. I've often wondered about sleep studies. If someone already has sleep issues, to go and try to sleep in a strange place, with wires all over their head, how do they sleep at all, let alone enough to "Study"? or can they do them at your own home and bed now?

  8. Hi Sweet Jane, Prayer requests noted and will wing their way to God.
    Sorry about cancelled trip but just think about all the wonderful trips you will be able to take after Roger retires. And a whole week just to sew and so what you want enjoy.
    Murray had the sleep study done and he just couldn't stand the medication and didn't want anything to do with machine. Why are they doing a sleep study on you. You know with FM we already have sleep problems.
    I don't know how much sewing I will get done this week Jonah is coming for an over night and it is March Break here so we are trying to plan some thing to do with him. I don't know if you received any of my e-mail in the last week. What kind of computer did you buy? Prayers and blessings for family and your community Love Sandra

  9. Dear Sweet Lady. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for including me in your prayer request. I am Humbled by the support and encouragement I have received from all the wonderful people like you. I say this with tears running down my face. A simple thank you does not seem enough. Blessing to you and yours. I will say a special request in my prayers to keep you safe and well.


Blessings to all of you who have taken the time to leave your thoughtful comments. I read each one and hope you will come back often!
