With A Saddened Heart


Hello, Dear Ones. 
It is with a sad heart that I'm writing this post.
I have delayed in posting about my little mother because my daughter sometimes reads my blog. She just had little Camp a week ago and he has had to have a small  procedure done (he's fine now) and we felt she was just too tender emotionally to know about my mother. We told her today.

If you follow me on Facebook you know my little 90 mother fell and broke her hip. There was pressure to decide whether she should have a half hip replacement. We decided there was no other option for her. Then on with the surgery. While she was being prepped for surgery she stopped breathing. They placed a breathing tube in her throat and more life saving decisions had to be made. She has had a massive heart attack and then yesterday she said she was hungry and ate jello and soup. She is breathing now with the little nasal oxygen tube in her nose.

She is in ICU and is critical but she is being cared for and is comfortable. 
I want to thank you all of your prayers. I really have a peace about everything. My mother is a christian and has walked with the Lord a long time. I have the promise she will be with Jesus immediately when she leaves this earth and I feel it will be soon. She is in God's hands and He will take her when He wills.
I'm so thankful for each day that I can tell her I love her and hear her tell me she loves me too. 

Now I don't want to leave you sad so let me share a little story with you. Little Camp was born before mother fell and we keep showing her pictures of him. In her mind I am the one who has given birth! :) She told me today, "You don't look like you've had a baby." She also can't understand why I just don't go and get him. "You are going to go bring him home aren't you?" she said. I told her it was my daughter who had the baby and she said, "Oh, that's why she's nursing him?" I told her yes. I wouldn't be able to nurse the baby. She just smiled and said, "You are just a little too old."

So in the midst of the waiting and wondering, there is always something that can make us smile.




I am going to take a blog break so I can be there for my mother. I do feel as if I'm in limbo right now - kinda numb but I do feel at peace knowing God is in control.

I love you all and thank you for your prayers and would ask you to continue praying for us.

You are always my sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I Will Rise

There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

 And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There's a day that's drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
"Worthy is the Lamb"
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
"Worthy is the Lamb"

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise
