  9. thank you so much Dearest Darlene! I will miss you today as my knee is not for walking right now.
    Dave and I will have our own service here and we take communion right here at home as I told you before when we have to miss a lot. Today will be a perfect day for that.
    Strange thing…..I had rented the movie St. Peter a while back to watch with family and never got to it while they were here. So we decided to watch if for the Easter W/e on Sat afternoon. It was 3 hours long and so worth every minute it. It was jusst perfect for it included the surroundings of Peter during the Cruxifixion and Resurrection times. And it ended, the Tv automatically popped back on and for some reason it was on EWTN the Catholic channel and so movie ended with Peter dying in Rome then the TV showed Rome celebrating Easter…………..hmmmmmmmmm

  10. ps……I should send my dog over to bring back the scraps hahaha.

    Dave is making me pancakes in bed. I am doing good I think but my knee won’t walk. It just hurts so much but the swelling has come way way down……….I lost 8 lbs of fluid!

  11. (I am starting a new Post (aka Thread in blog land) for Easter……….check it out.

  12. Happy Easter Everyone,

    Just stopping by to say hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    It has been quiet here. Arlene, am attending a meeting at Rose Mary’s next Saturday night (18).
    Can’t wait – haven’t seen her and old friends for quite a while. I understand there are some Carpenter’s Home ladies there too. I don’t know who yet as I haven’t been there. Will let you know if you like… Love

  13. Need Prayers for a Friend:
    Praise the Lord for Dave’s healing and strength for Bali. Please join me in fervent prayers for my dear friend Gail, a faithful Prayer Warrior for all and for the world. Gail has a reoccurance of ovarian cancer which has metastasized. Gail is almost 73 and is the sole care provider for her disabled adult son Jay Jay, recently diagnosed with MRSA due to his numerous hospitalizations (unfortunately, Gail’s great-grandaughter Emma–born with many physical disabilities–has also contracted the MRSA infection from her many, many, many and continuous hospitalizations during her short life). Please grant Gail time on this earth to heal physically, to continue her ministry, and to care for her loved ones.

  14. Hi Arlene and all, I lost my brother to lung cancer, so I know how scary and hard that can be. I am praying that the spots on your husband’s lungs are just scar tissue from the pneumonia.
    🙂 Marilyn

  15. oh thank you SO MUCH Marilyn for the understanding words. I think someone has had to go through it to know how frightening it can be.

    God bless you abundantly for your response!

  16. Hi Beloved,
    I am praying for you and Dave. I thank GOD he is home. May God continue doing those mighty miracles. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP ON YOUR TOTAL HEALING!!!!
    There IS A HEALING FOR ALL that is wrong with you! and WE ARE ENTERING INTO A HEALING SEASON!

    See you at the ALTAR Sweetie!
    Kathryn Grace 828

  17. My prayers are that all things go well for you and Dave. We all need each others prayers.

    Please know that God will be holding your hands through whatever comes your way.


  18. I so appreciate your comments dear friends as we all meander through the pathways of life……
    we never know what lies ahead.

    Today on our way to the appointments we had, I was just wondering what people do that don’t have Jesus. I was praying quietly in the car as we headed into town and God seemed to saying over and over and over to me…….TRUST, TRUST, TRUST.
    It reminded me of Abraham when he had to set out to Ur and knew not where or how the journey would be.
    Then we had a little scrape in traffic……hubby scraped another car…….our side mirror was pulled off. We were trying to avoid another wreck and I think they did take that into consideration as they charged him but with 2 pts off his license rather than 4. PTL. He has NEVER had points off.
    He is such a safe driver.
    I had my knee drained as it swelled back up from the fall. That was to hold me over till the 30th when I see the Ortho knee specialist.

    Just want to get this house sold and get a house in FL and settle back down to live……….

  19. Hi Balai,

    I am standing in agreement with you and all friends on your and Dave’s health. God bless you. You have both had a year of obstacles!! BUT GOD is on your side and you will win.

    Looking forward to having you here in Lakeland.
    Will answer your email soon. Today is very busy. I had PT at 11AM and am tired.

    Love you,

  20. Hello all. Good to see you here so often Annette Davis. You are so faithful!

    I will try to leave a note more often when I pop in to pray which is daily pretty much.

    Today I left a prayer need for myself on the other page.

  21. hey Bali, I just popped in and see a new devotion up. I am not sure you are through posting it all but it looks great. Thanks once again!

  22. Christian One Liners

    Don’t let your worries get the best of you;
    Remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

    Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited
    Until you try to sit in their pews.

    Many folks want to serve God,
    But only as advisers.

    It is easier to preach ten sermons
    Than it is to live one.

    The good Lord didn’t create anything without a purpose,
    But mosquitoes come close.

    When you get to your wit’s end,
    You’ll find God lives there.

    People are funny; they want the front of the bus,
    Middle of the road,
    And back of the church.

    Opportunity may knock once,
    But temptation bangs on the front door forever.

    Quit griping about your church;
    If it was perfect, you couldn’t belong.

    If a church wants a better pastor,
    It only needs to pray for the one it has.

    We’re called to be witnesses, not lawyers or Judges.

    God Himself doesn’t propose to judge a man until
    he is dead. So why should you?

    Some minds are like concrete
    Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

    Peace starts with a smile.

    I don’t know why some people change churches;
    What difference does it make which one you stay home from?

    A lot of church members singing ‘Standing on the Promises’
    Are just sitting on the premises.

    Be ye fishers of men. You catch ’em – He’ll clean ’em.

    Stop, Drop, and Roll won’t work in Hell.


    Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

    Don’t put a question mark where God put a period.

    Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

    Forbidden fruits create many jams.

    God doesn’t call the qualified,
    He qualifies the called.

    God grades on the cross, not the curve.

    God loves everyone,
    But probably prefers ‘fruits of the spirit’ over ‘religious nuts!’

    *+*+*+*+*+*+*+ *+*+*
    God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

    He who angers you, controls you!

    If God is your Co-pilot, swap seats!

    Don’t give God instructions, just report for duty!

    The task ahead of us is never as
    great as the Power behind us.

    The Will of God never takes you to where the
    Grace of God will not protect you.

    We don’t change the message,
    The message changes us.

    You can tell how big a person is
    By what it takes to discourage him.

    The best mathematical equation I have ever seen:
    1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.


  24. Arlene you wrote in email that there is bad news concerning Dave and the spot on his lung.

    I, with a few others have not been able to find your prayer request. I will pray. God knows his every need.

    I checked Prayer Requests.

    Love and Prayers,

  25. Arlene, see prayer on prayer requests… Love

  26. Just to let you know Bali that we are supporting you and just because you don’t hear from us…..don’t think we are not praying hard.

  27. UPDATE ON HUBBY (DAVE): Spot is small 1.5 cm in upper r. lobe. It reallly “lit up” thus they want to go right in and cut it out surgically BUT…….DAVE has COPD and is on Oxygen already – not sure if he is a candidate for surgery……test his breathing next mon. & get ok from Heart Doc. If those = ok = surgery asap. If not………Plan B = Radiation probably. Will have to be followed forever.

    We feel relieved compared to what we COULD have heard. NO lymph nodes “lit up” and its small = not a fast spreading Ca. PRAISE JESUS! PRAISE JESUS! Don’t stop praying because Monday we find out if he has surg or not. PLEASE keep praying! THANK ALL OF YOU FOR PRAYERS AND GOOD THOUGHTS …..YOU ARE ALL SO KIND!

    How worn out I am just from a doctors visit because of the nature of the visit…….but our church brought supper a + enough for tomorrow!!!!!!!!! and Banana Pudding,

    If anyone has more questions just email me………….soooooooo tired.

    In God’s Hands,

  28. Arlene, Your blog is designed so pretty. This is a nice change from all of the other junk online.
    I love the purpose of it. I hope you will have more people use it. There are so very many
    people who need prayer, I am surprised it is
    not packed full of requests.

    I for one will spread the word. It is nice knowing you since a child and knowing you have always had that heart for Jesus and especially a heart for praying for other people. Don’t you think that us going to G.A.’s in church fostered that in you?
    Anyway it is definitely a call on your life by God.

  29. Arlene, could we get the latest update on Dave?

  30. What’s the latest update on Dave?

  31. I agree………..would like an update.

  32. We don’t have one yet! Sorrry.

    He went to doc today to get the verdict but only got sent for one more test with the Pulmonary doctor. Supposed to call Friday and find out.

    Believe me……..I am not too patient!!!!

  33. The surgeon called Dave Friday morning to tell him that after even additional extensive pulmonary function tests, it was determined that
    Dave is not able to undergo surgery to remove what they believe to be a cancerous spot on his right upper lung. It is because of the severity of
    the COPD he has.

    We had hoped they could do surgery as it is the most thorough and better outcome. Dr. Stephenson (surgern) will meet with the Radiologist Wed.
    to discuss the procedures they will use to destroy this spot on his lung.
    It is expected they will begin Radiation treatment. This is a hard thing to
    deal with as we know it for it requires daily treatments for 6 + weeks. But that is on what we read about. We won’t know the exact plans until we meet with the doctors again on Wed.

    It is very stressful to go from week to week to get just another meeting scheduled or another test. Dave wants to agressively attack this and move on.

    There has not been a biopsy so I refuse to call this lung cancer. This is what the doctors say because the PET SCAN lit up on the spot indicating cancer.

    I will believe the report of the Lord and ask you to join me in this. Continue to pray of course. I ask too for a repeat xray at the least, so they will see God has removed the spot for them………….

    Surely God is my salvation; I will TRUST and not be afraid.
    The Lord is my STRENGTH and my SONG; He has become my
    SALVATION. Isaiah 12:2


  34. Trusting you all had a Happy Mother’s Day.

    I had something prepared to post for today but didn’t get it done. 😦

  35. Arlene,

    I want to assure you that I am continuing to stand in agreement with you and everyone else for Dave’s complete and total restoration of health :):) Love

  36. After meeting with the Radiologist, Dave was informed that they will do a needle biopsy and
    also place a “placer” in the spot so that if they
    continue to do the radiation treatments as
    supposed, it will guide them to be more accurate.


    THAT IS OUR PRAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Remember I fell and hurt my r knee when my son was here? I am still dealing with that injury when the dear”darling KEIKO” got a bit jealous of a treat I was taking out to th other chow and tried to run through my legs……it is almost funny but our legs got tangled and I ended p on that same bad knee.

    With massive prayer, heart felt cries and pain,
    and the tips from everybody. I got to church!!!!!
    God did that. Thennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnafter I got home my whole body fell apart. I am down with the back and sides of my neck causes I have rupt discs anyway and guess I ah another whipelash somehouse when I hit the floor. There are a lot of things I did nto kno whappened to me tht are servicing but I got to the ortho clinic tomorrow and we will see.


  38. update on Dave on prayer requests. And he has symptoms we are praying is only allergy.

  39. I hope you know that we are praying for Dave as well as you too! God is sending forth his healing power to your house and family. I know. Be encouraaged.

  40. Saying hello to any visitors!

    We are REALLY set in a TRUSTING MODE right now. Tomorrow (June 2nd) we will get results
    of the biopsy which will be a life changing thing
    regardless of the outcome.

  41. Hi Baly.
    You asked for suggestions. I think this would work better, the chat part, if besides dro pping by and leaving the rest of us a message, that we do it like facebook or my space. Just leave messages for each other on here and when we do see more than one on we can congregate

  42. I love this place and hope more of ou will visit an then leave a note for us.

  43. Not a lot of activity on here but I see on my control board that I have quite a lot of visitors.
    So…………………………..just fill out your name
    and email……..any email works……….and say hello.

  44. I hope some of you will write some encouraging messages to me. I really need to be lifted up in prayer as each day we continue to get bad news or have something new that is negative “attack” us.
    Today you can’t imagine what I am going through in my heart and mind. I am confused and feel like I am at a crossroads…….but its a decision I cannot make because it involes “us” as a married could and Dave must make it with me.




    Feel free to leave any comments or suggestions too.

    Dave is not having a good day. Several nitro
    episodes but we are keeping up with his BP and know when to do more

  46. hi yall,

    please take time to chat here when you visit.
    Don’t save all of your chats for Facebook 😆

  47. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I overinduldged in the food dept this w/e! How was your holiday?

  48. I have fever and stuff. Its from choking on some food I had eaten during the night…..GERD is very bad and this happens sometimews. But I will be okay soon.

  49. hey Bali!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just was checking out the site looking for updates and requests. Glad Dave is moving along. We are praying this thing is dead now.

  50. got the new prayer requests. be sure and check the page.

  51. got the new prayer requests. be sure and check the page….

  52. In reply to the suggestion made above…….the only way to tell if someone is responding to your message here is to REFRESH your page…….it is not like FB or my space where you can see who else is on here.

    So guess this is more of a message board to one another but please use it so we can develop friendships…….is easier than emailing.

  53. I wanted to mention this in case someone might be helped by it.

    To maneuver on this page easier….on the right hand far margin, right click your mouse. It will give you a MENU: FROM THE MENU CHOOSE
    and it will instantly go there without scrolling 😉

    I thought that was so helpful when I found that.

  55. What a beautiful testimony.
    Thank you for sharing that.

    I am keeping up with Dave’s journey through this horrible sickness that has attacked his body.
    We are praying.

  56. note the prayer req about the auto accident……serious with deaths in SC.

  57. I have a praise report listed under praise tab!

  58. just wanted to say that Facebook has some good things about it. Since joining……it has taken awhile but I have been able to communicate with my family who are scatter across the south……in a much better way. My neices and nephews are all grown and married and some have their own families too now and I am even able to talk to my great neice…….someone I have never gotten to know. They spent the night in our home in FL several years ago but she was really little then.
    Since then they had another child who is up there now.
    So I am just so thrilled because those that won’t email, willl get on FB and communicate because we are all there in one place and it is so much easier.

  59. hi Bali,
    I was wondering if you can archive part of this years worth of chat. Or can you make 2 pages.
    I know you were telling me wordpress is not that easy to change. They have there own software and you have to use it their way. You can PAY afor another program to use as you wish. You said I am okay with this FREE version as long as it works.

    You alsocan archive these to end in June however to make it a 1/2 year. You could archive every 3 months if we ever get that busy,,,
    not meant to be nosy or bossy but expressing what some others have said too.

    BTW we do LOVE TO have a place to come to leave messages knowing others are praying.

    Thanks and now.

    I am praying for your dental work to settle down.
    I also pray the permanent crown will not cause any trouble. I pray Bali also for your total health.
    Knowing you so well, I know many do not really understand how much you do have to deal with on a daily basis. Count on me for prayers though because BELIEVE YOU ME I FOR ONE KNOW about these things.

    Also, I have been reading up on dave and it seems like finally, although not really noticeable
    he has come around and made a turn for the better. I think he has had to deal with the emotional issues of all of these conditons as they
    slipped up on him but in time he will surprise you at how much recovery he will actually have.
    Praise God for the prayers.

  60. Bali, anytime I can’t get on here because I am at work, expect me to email you from work and I ask that you would kindlly place it on the requests page on my behalf. I think you can do that as you mentioned it before.

  61. note on Dave’s page.

  62. I am archiving the first 1/3 of the year’s chats but they are always available if you look at the menu on the right.

  63. I know I need to update the prayer requests page but I confess that I am just exhausted every night when I sit down to get on here.

    I am going through everything in my house, sorting, tossing, giving away and putting away.
    I am also packing away a lot of things we can do without for now as we rented a storage unit.
    The result is absolute exhaustion. I have fibromyalgia which includes extreme fatigue anyway. So pray I can get it togother. Just too much happening this year for me. I hang onto Jesus who is my Master!

  64. I rejoice with you that the Lord is ever faithful and is bringing you and Dave through all your very difficult trials especially this year! today someone shared
    Lamentations 3:23-33 (New International Version)

    23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.

    24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”

    25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
    to the one who seeks him;

    26 it is good to wait quietly
    for the salvation of the LORD.

    27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke
    while he is young.

    28 Let him sit alone in silence,
    for the LORD has laid it on him.

    29 Let him bury his face in the dust—
    there may yet be hope.

    30 Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him,
    and let him be filled with disgrace.

    31 For men are not cast off
    by the Lord forever.

    32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion,
    so great is his unfailing love.

    33 For he does not willingly bring affliction
    or grief to the children of men.

  65. Oh bless your heart BJ!!!!!!!!! I love this!!!!!!!!
    It so ministers to me right now as I am being restored by God. I LOVE that last verse…….33.
    Praise God for you to be there to share it!

  66. Just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for your words of encouragement. I think we all just need to hear those positive words from each other from time to time…reassurances that God IS in control, as always. Sometimes we just need to sit patiently and KNOW that He is at work, no matter how much we can’t see it, He is on the case! 🙂 God Bless you & your family. Praise be to God.

  67. Psalm 22:3
    But thou art holy, O thou that
    inhabitest the praises of Israel.

    Have a happy Sunday!

  68. PLEASE read the prayer req today.

  69. do remember when you stop by (and I know so many of you are reading this because I have the hit # counter lol. Do drop a line and just say what’s on your mind …….just like you do on Facebook or myspace or any blog. We can keep a Christian chat going if you all want to do that.



  71. if you visit, drop a note here so we know you are visiting.

    BTW…….thank you for all the wonderful email.
    Be sure to write you requests here. If you forget and send to me I will post for you unless u ask me not to.

  72. hello again all! A new year 2010 and it is March already. Wow is this year going to fly by or not?

    We are trying to get out house ready to put on the market really soon and that takes more than hubby or I have in us so we need prayer and are trusting in the Lord.

  73. I need to archive some of these messages as the page is taking time to load. Remember they can be fetched by clicking on the proper link in our right side column.

    Just wanted to say hello and a special welcome to our new viewers. I see the stats for the hits on this page so I see we have quite a good number of viewers. I would love for you to leave a message here for me.

    Remember if you leave a request I willpray4u~

  74. It’s great to see in the stats for this site that so many of you are stopping by! DO say hello to let me know YOU were here. I love to chat with your and will do so if you chat back. Just use it like Facebook or my space, etc.

  75. way behind and I am aware of it. I will get it caught up as soon as I get the real estate
    post up to date and make rhe flies; I have them almost ready, just final details and print.

  76. Still not up to par her. EXPLANATION….NOT EXCUSE.
    WE HAVE FINALLY PUT OUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET ON and will be mailing out the info for anyone interested.

    We are going back to our birthplace hometown, Lakeland, FL due to husband’s health as our kids and grandkids want us there. They are not able to keep coming up as often as we need them now.

    We have had wonderful 10 years “vacation” on our own hilltop on a mountain. In the winter we have a view of Table Rock Mountain which is 1 mile west our backyard. Can see from LR.

    Pray of course for the proper sale, to the chosen people by God. We already have a lot and a house plan in a subdivision on a small lot of tract homes which is 2 miles from our son. We have lived on at least an acre….meaning no close neighbors for over 36 years……….since 1973.
    So this will be an adjustment for us but better than an ACLF. We have 2 dogs and need a fenced in back yard. Hubby just can’t do apartments. He is used to country living as a child. Rural has been 15 miles for food or 20 for RX.

    Everything will be 10 min away.

    Will write later.

  77. I have been sooooooo preoccupied with getting out house for sale posted and followed up on the printout flyers. I have neglected our space is miserably but am still here and get poked when yall leave me a note so dont’ hesitate to do so.!
