"RE:"A desparate prayer need...""

Dear Kathy,

I truly understand. I was diagnosed with Prgressive Multiple Sclerosis almost 4 yrs ago. Unlike you, my body goes numb and my limbs jerk. It tingles like when your foot goes to sleep. My doctor told me that I would be permanently in a wheel chair in 2 to 4 yrs when I was first diagnosed. That was 3 1/2 yrs ago. I'm typing this with one finger on one hand and two fingers on the other.

I have been prayed over and anointed with oil but still am progressing. I know that God can heal me. I pray that he does and can't wait for my heavenly body! We are in VERY bad debt with collection agencies calling daily, too(but they can't get blood out of a turnip), yet we still have food and clothes. We might go into bankruptsy in April but I'm not worried. We still have our Heavenly Father, our earthly family, and a roof over our heads if it comes to that.

I have been married to a wonderful husband for 27 yrs and have 3 great loving children who takes care of me. Yes, they are still my kids because our oldest is just 19. They do all the housework and cooking.

I prayed and asked the Lord what He needed me to do for Him since I have trouble getting my body to move to get out of bed. He let me know that I could put Bible verses on Facebook and use it as a witnessing tool. I can copy and paste so that helps.

I wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers as I am down to typing with one hand now  :) !!!!

I believe that you and I are still here because our Heavenly Father knows that our families need us as much as we need them. They love us and are willing to be there for us just as we try to be there for them in our own special way.
