I am so relieved. My oldest brother has Parkinson's disease and is in care. His home is closing in August and we were despairing of finding somewhere else where he could take his cat.

I found out today that he and his cat have a place in a home where my Mum lived for the last few months of her life.

I was so relieved I [Waterworks]

Thank you for your recent and continued prayers, and praise for reasonably 'surviving' the last few days at work, with the unbearably hot weather and all (yes, everybody was moaning and groaning and sweating, not just me!), and now a few weeks off for summer. And it's a bit cooler and has been raining and thunderstorming, which is helpful.

My medical appointement on Monday was a new one to me, TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I must say... wow, I am flabbergasted! (Important NOTE: This is NOT medical advice or support for any kind of treatment, just my very personal observation and reaction to it!)

So, they didn't just do The Needles, which I knew they would, but also things like acupressure and massage - I never had anything like it in combination before! And it makes total sense!

So thanks and praise also for the great relief that was felt after just that first treatment, more of which will follow in the next few weeks.

You know, I am so grateful for the, let's call them: immediate emotional benefits of this. I really wasn't expecting this, and there was sudden clarity and insight into things, and a feeling of forgiveness and mercy - so it's quite amazing what knowledgeable phyisiological manipulation can do to one's general wellbeing. I'd never have thought!!

Praise and thanksgiving for this, and the continued blessings that will flow, and to Him from whom they flow.

[Angel]

Me Too, Georgie-Porgy would not like an addition to the household where she is Queen, and besides Pud-Pud hates both my sister-in-law and I as we have both taken her to the vets at different times.

If it does turn to custard one of the staff at the Home he's in now likes Pud-Pud and would welcome her.

I wish the place wasn't closing. The staff there have been so kind. Dad was there too, and when he died some of the residents took the place of Uncles and Aunts in comforting us, his grown up children, as we had no older family left.

So this is also in Thanksgiving for the love of the staff, and praying that they find employment elsewhere as some have been there over 20 years.

I am really sorry, I thought I'd posted the previous message in Prayers of the Faithful. I was on mobile at the time.

Good news Telepath. Nothing more worrying than a missing cat.

Very moved to hear that my friend Jenny who died so suddenly last week in the UK requested that her ashes be brought back to South Africa and scattered in the Kruger national Park where she spent so many happy times out in the bushveld looking at wild birds and animals. It feels as if she is coming home from a long exile and her brother posted that he has a sense of peaceful closure at the prospect of returning her to the land she loved so much.

Driving home on a windy country road, fifteen miles from home, when the car made a loud scraping sound. Stopped, put on hazards, tried to spot problem. A man called Stephen / Steven stopped and asked if needed help pushing the car away from the bend. I explained the noise, he asked for the car keys and drove a few meters. He thought a piece of grit had lodged in my brake pad. He tested the brakes, which appeared to be working, though they sounded awful. He thought I was safe to drive home and offered to tail me home to make sure I was ok. I got home safely.

It might have taken hours to get a breakdown service on a Sunday evening, and I'd have been stuck on an awkward bit of road. Thanks to Steph(v)en I can call a garage tomorrow, from home.

He was five minutes from home when he stopped, having been sent out by his wife to pick up a missing ingredient for their dinner. So also grateful that when he phoned home to say he was taking a 30 mile detour home, she agreed! I hope their dinner wasn't ruined.

Thanks be to God for Steph(v)en!

How kind of him to do that for you. Our exhaust pipe fell apart one night when eldest son was about three months old. We pulled off road but it was pitch black in the bush and we did not have a torch. No one stopped. Then I stood holding baby son where I could be seen by approaching cars. One stopped, pulled up behind us and shone headlights on for light. Then the driver followed us for a considerable distance back to civilisation and the suburbs again.

I remember being so thankful so can imagine how you felt too.

Duty, Stern Daughter of the Voice of God (as Bertie Wooster put it [Big Grin] ) forced me to help out with the Leavers' Day for one of our local primary schools today. Normally I would run a mile from such a thing [Eek!] !

However the children were all really engaged with their activities, and the whole day was much less stressful than I had imagined. Thank you Lord!

(oh, and please bless the breakfast I'm catering in church tomorrow morning - at least this one's only for 10 or so, as opposed to the 40 people last time!)

Thank you the kind lady who drove us to our hotel when we got lost walking this weekend. We were two miles out of our way, had been walking for six hours in torrential rain and it was getting late. We knocked at the door of what we though was a B@B. It was an exB@B but the owner drove us to our destination, which was so kind of her. There are such lovely people in the world.

Sarasa, there are indeed some good people around. Two of the staff from the care home where my brother was living went to his new place and found the cat.

I so wish it wasn't closing, the loving kindness they showed towards our whole family when Dad, and later, my brother was there, seem a long way from the attitude of the staff at his new place [Waterworks]

Something I was expecting to be difficult turned out to be easy because a person I was expecting to be difficult turned out to be lovely.

And I've just received my first ever text message from my son who's got his first phone ready for big school in September. Message says "We went to the park and we are baking cakes."

Giving thanks for the healing in relationships that is being posted about here.

Bless the Lord, my soul.
Bless His holy name.

I started having vertigo 24/7 in July of 2015. It stopped in May of 2016, and came back in October. The cause was never discovered (the common causes having been ruled out) and three different drugs and a month of physical therapy did nothing.

But now it has stopped again! And it is such a joy to be able to walk without thinking about every single step, to walk briskly for more than 10 minutes without feeling ill, to go up and down stairs carrying things without fear of falling, to put on pants without leaning up against a wall, to tip my head back to look at things on the top shelf at the grocery store, to not worry about being knocked down by bicyclists, skateboarders, children, or dogs on the sidewalk ... to have balance!

I can understand what joy it must be to have that gone. I have had it several times, but it has been an ear infection causing it. Just horrible. Take care.
