STEVE'S 44TH BIRTHDAY... AND HE WAS BORN AMAZINGLY!

        Sharing this info again!  I always love when my son has a birthday time.  So... here's the reason that amazingly the Lord protected me and kept him to come.  Blessings...
==================================================
     I have posted more than once about how he was born miraculously... not just from bodies, but from the strong encouragement for abortion by my doctors.  I refused to do anything to take the baby out earlier.  AND it was mostly because of my serious body issue.  They were worried about the baby that would die, b/c of me.  I'll put most of that in after this next bit of "miracle" news.
      He is 44 on January 17.  I can't forget any of the situations that were piled on me for the 8 months of my pregnancy to his birth.  It was filled with scariness from the Doctors in the Redwood City, CA., area.
       And, again, here's the story of how he arrived...
=======================================================                                MY "ABORTION" MIRACLE!

       Every year when January 22nd hits, and the pro-choice and pro-life groups hit the news, I always want to stand up and holler, "LISTEN TO ME!!!!"
      The key: My son was born on January 17th, 1973.  And it's a miracle he was born.  So here's the info:

      In the Spring, 1972, I became pregnant for the serious situation time. I had had at least two miscarriages in the previous two years, and, while driving home from church that Sunday afternoon, the pain began strongly again; I was only 6 weeks pregnant. It was the exact feeling and timing of the other miscarriages. I went to a Doctor, who was available at his work place immediately on that Sunday afternoon, and after checking me, he suggested that I not have this baby, that I let "Nature" bring this to an end. He gave me some pills to take "whenever I felt that pain."  Well, at home, I was in pain that day, but even when in pain, I didn't take any pills; I was not a medicine-oriented person. What I discovered many months later was that the pills would not have relieved the pain, but would have caused a medical abortion.
      Occasionally, during the next several months, other doctors tried to convince me to let them bring the birth to an end. I was told that this baby would be a mental and physical vegetable, that I would always have to care for "it" and would never be free OR that the baby could die very soon and I would suffer from that death; "Mother Nature" had tried to free it "now."
     Well, I refused. Can't say I wasn't frightened about what the results would be. In fact, I was terrified during the pregnancy, especially when I was forced to be in bed for about two months that summer and had this fear pouring through my heart and mind constantly. But, I knew it wasn't what God would want me to do, so I simply couldn't; sometimes I felt Him hold my hand and encourage me to stand in that rocky area. The baby's Dad, my former husband, basically just told me to do what I needed to do. Except for one "spiritual" Mom in that portion of Redwood City/San Mateo who gave me a Word when she could, I walked through this alone.
      [You must recall or know that in those days talking to a pastor about these physical issues was not reasonable, or going to a counselor wasn't easy (especially since I couldn't afford it), and ultrasound wasn't a medical part of our lives. Life has most certainly changed now. I also had no family I could talk to.]     The baby was due on January 12. On the 16th, I was rushed to Stanford University for the delivery about 9 at night. Labor had kicked in that evening. When I was in that place when the baby was being delivered, about 6:30 AM the 17th, the nurse asked if I wanted to look in the mirror so I could watch the baby come out. All of a sudden, I was obviously more terrified than anyone, including me, knew it. I screamed, "NO!!!"
     And then the baby came. And HE was not a vegetable. He looked exactly like his sister who had arrived October 9, 1969, in that same hospital, he was an ounce heavier than she had been, and 1/2 inch longer in length. That was all. Period.
     They did some stuff to me and pulled out a bunch of my "baby" stuff -- so I could never have a baby again -- and I was in the hospital for a few days.  Then me and my baby went home. Didn't know anything about the Roe v. Wade abortion approval, even though this picture was taken that very day, January 22nd.

 
     

  In fact, I didn't know anything about that for some time; life was extremely stressful and my recovery took several months. Survival was my only focus then.
      But to know that the Lord gave me a son at the same time that law came into being, and that He had helped me walk through those horrible times with very caring and concerned doctors, probably some of the most seriously compelled to do the best for me and the "fetus", still just fills my heart with appreciation for Him. 


 He was baptized and his step-dad and I were there for him.

IN UGANDA JANUARY, '91

      Twenty-six years ago in January and February we were in a portion of Uganda that was in the main city of Kampala, a side city of Jinja which is right on the Nile River, and about 40 miles north from that Kampala to what was called New Hope Uganda.  The NHU, when we were there, we saw wonderful leaders and they did some teaching and some to fix the acre area.  We sure met met many.  We were at churches in Kampala and, suddenly, I was a preacher in a couple churches and was teaching kids.  Dave and I did what we could.  We didn't know when or how the Lord would have us there again, and we were there in early September, '94 and back and forth a few times.  Here in Omaha or there in Uganda.  We wanted to be there forever, but the Lord used us in unusual ways.  Just wanted to show a few small photos that are so special re: what we did.  Always worth a smile!  I've put the Word of God on some of these photos when sharing.  SO here they are.   OH... and we've had so many "sons", "daughters", "grandkids" from there.  We hear from them and are filled with love from several.    [AND sorry if I didn't say the words right.  I'm struggling with my dementia brain issue. AND being in Uganda several times was a God-gift!]




The leaders of New Hope Uganda.  It was about 6 years before we got there and they are still connected for these years and have thousands of workers there and thousands from several nations that are giving money and giving prayer! Dave and I love them!

DRIVEN AROUND OUR AREA! LAUGHING AND SMILING!!!

     As cold and as dark and as windy, my husband has driven me around on Saturday and Sunday and I saw some wonderful  things.  I can't do much of anything, and, for a year, I can't drive, BUT he just grabbed my heart and my attention.  Today, he's working at our church and doing a piano student in another part of our town.  He just got home today and he'll be going to our church and other churches tomorrow, as far as I know.  I can't do much, but, as I've said before, I can worship and pray and glorify the Lord.    Bless you all!

THE CHRISTMAS TIME

     Didn't take the pictures, but had a wonderful time at my daughter's home and taken there by my son at 7 on the Saturday evening and brought home when it was about 10.  My husband was there from 8 to 9:30, b/c before that he was playing piano at a church and then going again and would be doing the piano and would be able to drive home about 12.  He got home about 12:30 of the morning of Christmas on Sunday.  WELL, he went to others churches at 7 in the morning and got home at 10:30 and a couple hours later we went to the Bhutanese and we at their church from 12:30 to 3:00.  AND Dave took me home and went back to our church to do some cleaning.  Anyhow, I've said too much.  I'm still sleeping most of the time from about 7:30 or 8:00 at the evening and getting up about 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning.  All I can show you is our present time Christmas things AND they will be here until sometime in February.  Love to see them and won't get them out for weeks and weeks.  Anyhow, bless you and thank you.  I'm talking too much as usual.  Sure love and miss many, many of you!  Pray for many of you, and worship and glorify the Lord and focus on Him and Heaven!!

WORSHIP & GLORIFY & PRAISE & HONOR

For about 2 years, this is what I'd been doing then and what I've been doing more.  This is a significant portion of the words to the Lord and He dropped it onto me.  I've been doing it several times a day.  At night when I'm in the bed I'm singing it and early morning when I just wake up I do it. I use these words and lot of others that have dropped into me by the Lord about a year ago.  Worth a wonderful time of day and wonderful time to focus on Heaven.   Bless you all and thank you.

CAN'T DRIVE; CAN WORSHIP!!!

     A year ago today it was indicated to have me drive in at a hospital.  A hospital teaching lady that was in a place to check drivers situations, and I was told to be there, b/c I'd been told by a few people to go there.  They were worried re: me, b/c my dementia and my 2 canes and my misunderstanding was what I was supposed to be there.  I THOUGHT I'd be able to drive, b/c I haven't broken into any of the streets or towns in our area.  The Lord has used me to drive and worship and pray re: the demonic situations.  I was too tired and sleeping too long at night so I couldn't drive around about to other states... especially when I would go to the Northwest area nearly every year to see family and friends since I was born and raised there... I couldn't go around after another year ago.  Then, all I could do was drive around Omaha and other nearby towns and to focus historically re: what has happened in about a thousand years ago where other gods were worshiped and people were sacrificed to those other gods.  Anyhow, now I can't drive.  My husband has driven me around a couple times a week. He works fixing much at our church and at other churches he's playing piano and organ.  He doesn't have a lot of free time.  A couple gals have picked me up.  When the driving is taken around, I can pray and worship and glorify the Lord. 
       So, this is IT!  I can worship and pray and glorify and focus on the Lord and focus on Heaven.  So, this is the piece of our car for about 10 years and it was actually on the former car shortly before it for a few months.  It was re: my driving around and about and says: Roaming for God.


Sorry if I didn't write well enough.  Oh, well.... I'm tired all day and tired all night, so writing doesn't work very well.  I've been a writer, and reader, and an actress for years and years and years.  Now, I can't read very well, and can't write, and nothing else. .... AND all I can do is focus on the Lord!  HALLELUJAH!!!!!

VARIETY OF WORD OF GOD!!

On the Colorado River
    When I had driven a lady from our city in May, '92, and taken her around to the western portion of Nebraska, to Wyoming, Colorado, and all over in a lot of Utah.  She'd had some strong wrong words on her book she was writing and, when she wanted to see some of those states to see if she was going to write the right words, she had me take her.  It was about 2 weeks.  Well, I'll show you a few of the pictures AND I'd usually put a lot of the Word of God on those photos.  So, this is a way to share around and about.  AND, after I had brought her home, Dave and I were very involved with her and her husband.  Then, it was about a year later than she didn't like me at all.  She was mad at me, b/c I was dealing with the Lord issues for her.  She did not want to be involved with the Bible and anything of the Lord.  BUT, many photos I took then are filled with the Word.  I've always enjoyed seeing many of the locations.  AND a special one in Utah was filled with the Word MANY times.  I can't write well, read well, etc., other than focusing on the Lord and worshiping and praying, day and night, forever and ever.   SO, here's a few pictures.

Romans 11



 
And this was a fun, fun, fun thing for me!
