Prayer Requests and Gardening Tales

Many of you know my dear friend, Mary, of Mary's Meanderings. She was bitten by a RATTLESNAKE and, although she is home, has had terrible reactions to antibiotics. The time she has to spend with her foot elevated has also caused her fibromyalgia to flare. Please pray for her and, if you have a few extra moments, stop in and say hi. I'm sure she'd appreciate the visit.
Here on the home front, things have been moving at a fast pace. Well, things AROUND me have. I've been having some major problems with my RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and although it appears that things are finally on the right track, my joints are still quite swollen and causing me pain. I'm behind in everything. Everything! And much of our garden is ready for harvesting and canning.
I've spent the last several days playing computer games and that's about it. Today, however, I'll venture outside and try to get my body moving again!
Thanks again for all your prayers. Love to you all!

Oh my word! I will certainly pray for Mary. What a dreadful thing. I bet that scared her and her family.

I'm sorry you've had RA problems. I've already got you in my prayers, but will do double duty for a bit here. :)

Love, Janet

Hi, Sher - I visited Mary today. She's really had an ordeal. Love your new little baby. I've watched a couple of your videos of your other bird on FB. I just haven't had much time at all to visit and comment. Been way too busy at work for some reason! Hope things are going your way and that you are feeling better soon! I've got most of my garden stuff in the freezer or canned. Howsa'bout I come to your house and help you??? Take care -

Sher, Let us know how Mary is doing. I am so glad we reconnected. Please keep in touch. Patti

Much as I enjoy facebook, I miss your postings here. They had a certain flavor. Are you going to come back and post here someday? I guess that's one of those decisions that has to be made by mood, etc. If we burn out on something, we just do.

Sher coming over to say hi! How are you doing friend? Much better over here thank you!! Am still pretty low on energy but my foot is healing and just have a little swelling and it's peeling all over which looks not so good!

Am so glad to be back to almost normal!! (never was completely normal anyways!)

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Sher, I have been thinking about you and wondering how you are doing with your RA? Sorry it's taken me so long to get over here! I say you online once but I think you must have gotten off before I got my message sent!

Pray you are doing well friend- let me know. I am almost completely over the rattlesnake bite - praise the Lord!! Have a nasty yeast infection that came from all the strong antibiotics given me but that's about it!!

blessings
