Life sometimes doesn't seem fair..but GOD has a reason 4 everything

     I have been blessed in my lifetime with a great family and wonderful children. I even was in the limelight for my 15 min. of fame when I worked in Nashville, but you know... that was a special time in my life. I didn't have any pain or problems with my health. I could do anything and go anywhere.

     Now, you can see the difference in the two pictures. PAIN is all I have and am dealing with it the best that I can. I had to have a surgery done..NOOO, I should've NEVER had the surgery done. THAT'S THE RIGHT ANSWER.
      I have been seen and told by several NS(Neurosurgens),NL(Neurologists) and Ortho's..oh yeah and a Rheumatologist. that I didn't need the surgery...it shouldn't have been done and there's NOTHING I can do @ it. It just doesn't seem fair, I know, but as we go through pain and surffering in our life,we grow into something different...a person who knows what you're going through...a person who can relate. Maybe this is my calling to reach out and help those who are in the same boat as I. For I know there are a lot of us suffering...JUST HOLD ON..DON'T GIVE UP
     I just hope you can get something out of what I say...because what I say is all @ what I've experienced..lived and now know. I am not old and wise..but I am growing,evolving into what GOD expects from me.

I will ALWAYS be straight with you and ask you to do the same.."Life is what you make it"..you can't blame anyone else for the things you do. As they always have said for many years "if you dance you got to pay the fiddler." I have to say that I have had my fair shair of paying the fiddler. We all have. We have our crosses to bear and to me, I wouldn't have it any other way to tell the truth.
Sometimes, I know you feel as if you have too much to take on or just too much on your plate, give it to The Lord. He is there for that purpose. Let Him have your worries and pray that He'll take away that worry or that pain. He will. It just takes faith,love and then will come hope. Now, you know that LOVE is an emotion that has a difficult definition to describe. This piece, I am @ to give you is directly from the Bible and is the best definition of LOVE and a few other Important things to remember: ROMANS 12:9-21

LOVE MUST BE HONEST AND TRUE. HATE WHAT IS EVIL.HOLD ON TO WHAT IS GOOD. LOVE EACH OTHER DEEPLY. HONOR OTHERS MORE THAN YOURSELVES. NEVER LET THE FIRE IN YOUR HEART GO OUT. KEEP IT ALIVE. SERVE THE LORD.

WHEN YOU HOPE, BE JOYFUL. WHEN YOU SUFFER, BE PATIENT. WHEN YOU PRAY, BE FAITHFUL. SHARE WITH GOD'S PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED. WELCOME OTHERS INTO YOUR HOMES.

DON'T PAY BACK EVIL WITH EVIL. BE CAREFUL TO DO WHAT EVERYONE THINKS IS RIGHT. IF POSSIBLE, LIVE IN PEACE WITH EVERYONE. DO THAT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN.

MY FRIENDS, DON'T TRY TO GET EVEN. LEAVE ROOM FOR GOD TO SHOW HIS ANGER. IT IS WRITTEN, "I AM THE ONE WHO JUDGES PEOPLE. I WILL PAY THEM BACK," SAYS THE LORD. DO JUST THE OPPOSITE. SCRIPTURE SAYS,
"IF YOUR ENEMIES ARE HUNGRY,GIVE THEM FOOD TO EAT.IF THEY ARE THIRSTY, GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO DRINK. BY DOING THOSE THINGS, YOU WILL PILE UP BURNING COALS ON THEIR HEADS."

DON'T LET EVIL OVERCOME YOU. OVERCOME EVIL BY DOING GOOD.

We all should set aside a time and give it to Him. I say, just 15 min. or more of reading and praying and true dedication is all He desires. Just try and let HIM IN. He says if you focus on Him all of the rest will fall into place.
He has taken so much from off of my shoulders...worries and pain. I once did have more pain than I do now and I Thank Him 4 that sooo much. As I said, I am still in pain, but it doesn't compare to what He did...HE sacrificed HIS LIFE for you and me. Just imagine you having to put yourself in those shoes for someone else. Would you do it? It would be the hardest decision I would ever have to make, but then again the easiest. I just remember how Abraham had to sacrifice his son, Isaac, but The Lord stopped him seeing his dedication and faith. Do you understand?
It is hard for me to understand sometimes myself just why GOD sent His Son...His beloved Son to come here and die for us sinners. It is true, we are just sinners...but we are sinners that have been given a chance to have salvation...where those who don't believe don't have the same priviledge..and to be perfectly honest,I feel for you...mostly because I just care and don't want to see anyone suffer(Esp. the H*** part.)
What is so hard to believe? It is so easy to believe for me I guess because I have felt the Lord's hand on me and it is the best feeling. So many people feel as if they can't see or feel it that it doesn't exist. I beg to differ with you. I know my Lord exists and His father as well, who created this world that we live in. So, the point that I am trying to get accross is to focus on The Lord and everything else will fall into place.. SO TRUE...IT IS...SEE YA NEXT TIME,WHEN NO TELLING WHAT WILL BE ON THE AGENDA...:)
on LIFE...AND THE THINGS IT BRINGS..CONT.

GOD BLESS...ALWAYS..KAREN

I seem to be having some trouble posting and that really bothers me. I had some problems with my computer this week and had to have a dell comp.teck help me through some technical problems.
I got the technical problems fixed,but they seem to have messed up my posting ability.
I am sure we will get this fixed soon. So, bear with me until I get my posting up and running again.
I will post some feeds on what I am going through because I know there are others that are going through the same thing.
I sincerely hope there is no one on this EARTH that has to suffer the way I do and I mean that will all of my heart.
I am not asking for pity, just understanding, in which some people just don't know how to give and that is sad.
I do have The Lord always by my side and I am soooo greatful that I do, for He conforts me and I know one day I will be in Heaven singing with the Angels.
I don't want to or am I trying to make anyone sad, but they can't find what is wrong with me and that is a scary fact. I just pray that The Lord keeps me around long enough to be here for my boys when they do need me and I know they will always need their mom. I love them so.
I pray that soon I will be able to post again. I had this problem once b4, but I finally got it straightened out..a yr. later, but I know with dell, they can find files so easily. I lost files from my Medhelp membership and a month later they found over 50-100 posts. I was amazed at how they done that. Sooo, don't worry they will have me up and running..I pray...Have faith..:)))
GOD BLESS always.. Karen

I am sooo sorry that it seems to be more of a problem than I thought. Please, don't give up on me..I will somehow get it up and running again. I have to say "Lord Willing". I don't understand what the problem is.
I have been dealing with health issues and I haven't been able to put all my time into this project, but have to say that it has been so theraputic to me and feel blessed to have had it for the time I did.
Thanks for dropping by to see and I hope you did get something out of this put together project of mine. It was fun looks like while it lasted..lol..I hope it is not over..still drop by and see me from time to time..who knows, I might just be able to hold onto this one..I brought the other one that I made in '09 to merge with this one. Next time, if I have to start over, I hope I have learned something just as life with all of its mistakes makes us better people.
