STORIES OF MIRACLES PART 2 🙂 SORRY I’M WRITING THIS SO LATE, I REALLY HAVE NO EXCUSE, I WAS JUST BEING LAZY TODAY LOL, SO SORRY. OK WELL YESTERDAY I STARTED TALKING ABOUT THE MIRACLES GOD DID FOR ME, WHEN I HAD A BLOOD INFECTION/ABSCESS. LIKE I SAID YESTERDAY, THE DOCTORS THOUGHT I WAS DYING! THEY TRULY DID. I WAS SO SICK I COULDN’T OPEN MY EYES, LIKE I SAID YESTERDAY, I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR WELL OVER 3 MONTH’S. I SPENT EVERY HOLIDAY IN THE HOSPITAL THAT YEAR, EXCEPT FOR CHRISTMAS, CHRISTMAS WAS THE ONLY HOLIDAY I WAS HOME FOR, AND EVEN FOR THAT, I WAS HOME YES, BUT ENDED UP RIGHT BACK IN THE HOSPITAL, NOT EVEN 5 DAYS LATER. DURING THAT TIME I HAD OVER 10 SURGERIES, ABOUT 8 OF THOSE WERE MAJOR, MAJOR SURGERIES, AND MY BODY HAD BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH. I FINALLY SAID TO MYSELF, I HAD ENOUGH.  THE DAY THAT I STARTED FEELING THAT WAY, A FRIEND OF MINE AND MY FAMILIES, CAME OVER TO PRAY WITH ME, AND WHEN SHE WAS PRAYING SHE HAD SAID SHE SEEN AN ANGEL RUBBING MY HEAD!! WHEN SHE HAD SAID THAT I WAS UNCONSCIOUS PRETTY MUCH, SO I WAS NOT ABLE TO FULLY HEAR, OR GET WHAT SHE WAS SAYING. THAT NIGHT AFTER SHE LEFT, I FINALLY WOKE UP, AND I STARTED CRYING OUT TO THE LORD, AND I WAS SAYING THAT I COULD NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE, I WAS TO WEAK, AND SICK, AND I JUST WANTED TO FINALLY BE HOME WITH HIM, AS SOON AS I HAD PRAYED THAT, I FELT SOMETHING STARTING TO RUB MY HEAD, I ASSUMED IT WAS MY MOM OR A NURSE OR EVEN A DOCTOR, BUT AS I LOOKED AROUND THE ROOM THERE WAS NO ONE IN IT, EXCEPT FOR MY MOM, BUT MY MOM WAS WAY ACROSS THE ROOM, SLEEPING ON A CHAIR. I THAN STARTED ASKING MYSELF AND GOD, WHAT WAS THIS I WAS FEELING? GOD HAD THAN REMINDED ME OF WHAT MY FRIEND HAD PRAYED OVER ME EARLIER THAT DAY, HE TOLD ME THAT WHAT I WAS FEELING, WAS AN ANGEL RUBBING MY HEAD!!! HE ALSO HAD TOLD ME, THAT I WAS GOING TO LIVE, HE TOLD ME NO MATTER WHAT NEGATIVE THINGS, THE DOCTORS OR EVEN MY FAMILY WAS TO TELL ME, I WAS NOT TO EXCEPT IT. IF ANYONE WAS TO SPEAK DEATH OVER MY LIFE, I NEEDED TO SPEAK LIFE! AND BELIEVE THAT I WAS GOING TO BE OK. HE TOLD ME THAT YES IT WAS GOING TO GET EVEN HARDER, AND THAT THE BATTLE WAS NOT OVER, BUT THAT EVENTUALLY I WOULD WIN THE WAR!  AS LONG AS I TRULY BELIEVED!!!! AND I DID!! FROM THAT MOMENT ON, I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT DEATH AGAIN. I KNEW ID BE OK, BECAUSE HE TOLD ME I WOULD BE. DON’T GET ME WRONG, IF I HAD DIED IT WOULD OF BEEN OK, I KNOW WHERE I’M GOING, IF OR WHEN THAT DAY COMES, SO I AM NOW NOR WAS I THAN AFRAID TO DIE, BUT I KNEW THE WORD THAT GOD TOLD ME, I KNEW IT WAS NOT MY TIME. I KNEW ID SURVIVE!! THAT WAS ONE OF THE HARDEST TIMES IN MY LIFE, BUT GOD WAS THERE HOLDING ME, AND FIGHTING WITH ME. I HAD WORSHIP/CHRISTIAN MUSIC PLAYING IN MY ROOM, AND EVEN IN THE SURGERY ROOMS THE WHOLE TIME. WHENEVER THE NURSES CAME IN MY ROOM, THEY WOULD SAY I DON’T KNOW WHY BUT THERE IS SUCH A DIFFERENT FEELING EVERY TIME I COME IN THIS ROOM, THIS ROOM IS SO JOYFUL AND PEACEFUL, AND THEY WOULD ASK US, HOW COULD WE HAVE SO MUCH PEACE, AND JOY, IN SUCH A TRAGIC TIME? MY ANSWER TO THAT IS, WE HAD THE JOY OF THE LORD, AND HIS PEACE, I AND MY FAMILY KNEW, THAT NO MATTER WHAT, GOD WOULD GET US THROUGH. THERE WAS A JOY, AND PEACE IN THAT ROOM, A PEACE THAT PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING, BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS IN THAT ROOM, THAT ANGEL RUBBING MY HEAD WAS IN THAT ROOM, JESUS WAS IN THAT ROOM!! SO WITH ALL THAT, AND THE LOVE OF MY FAMILY, HOW COULD YOU NOT FEEL JOY AND PEACE, WHEN YOU ENTERED IT?. MY GOD IS SO SO GOOD, HIS MIRACLES ARE REAL, ANYONE THAT SAYS, GOD ISN’T IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS ANYMORE, I FEEL VERY SAD, AND SORRY FOR YOU, BECAUSE I KNOW HES STILL WORKING MIRACLES, AND I KNOW HES REAL, I HAVE FELT HIS PRESENCE, AND HIS POWER, AND I FEEL VERY BAD FOR THE PEOPLE WHO DON’T BELIEVE, AND ARE MISSING OUT ON IT ALL, BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST!!! THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD. MY ADVICE TO YOU ALL IS, IF YOUR HEARTS ARE CLOSED TO HIS PRESENCE, LEARN TO OPEN THEM, AND ALLOW HIM IN YOUR HEART AND LIFE, BECAUSE IT IS THE GREATEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN HIS LOVE, I WILL SAY THAT OVER, AND OVER, THERE IS NOTHING BETTER, NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! SO I WILL SAY IT AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE NOT MET THIS GOD THAT I SPEAK SO HIGHLY OF, LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO HIM, AND HIS LOVE. PLEASE PRAY THIS PRAYER, IT IS CALLED THE SINNERS PRAYER. JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW I DID NOT WRITE THIS PRAYER LOL.  MY BLOG IS NOT THAT LONG TODAY I’M SORRY, BUT THIS IS ALL I FELT TO SHARE TODAY LOL.

DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER. I COME TO YOU IN PRAYER ASKING FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF MY SINS. I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH AND BELIEVE WITH MY HEART THAT JESUS IS YOUR SON, AND THAT HE DIED ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY THAT I MIGHT BE FORGIVEN AND HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. FATHER, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND I ASK YOU RIGHT NOW TO COME IN TO MY LIFE AND BE MY PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR. I REPENT OF MY SINS AND WILL WORSHIP YOU ALL THE DAY’S OF MY LIFE!. BECAUSE YOUR WORD IS TRUTH, I CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH THAT I AM BORN AGAIN AND CLEANSED BE THE BLOOD OF JESUS!  IN JESUS NAME, AMEN

Stories of Miracles

November 29, 2010

Hebrews 2:4 (Amplified Bible)

[BESIDES THIS EVIDENCE] IT WAS ALSO ESTABLISHED AND PLAINLY ENDORSED BY GOD, WHO SHOWED HIS APPROVAL OF IT BY SIGNS AND WONDERS AND VARIOUS MIRACULOUS MANIFESTATIONS OF [HIS] POWER AND BY THE IMPARTING THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT [TO THE BELIEVERS] ACCORDING TO HIS OWN WILL.

HI ALL. ID LIKE TO SWITCH THINGS UP A BIT TODAY, TODAY ID LIKE TO TALK ABOUT MIRACLES, SO I DECIDED TO MAKE A PAGE FOR THAT. THE NEXT FEW DAYS ILL BE SHARING STORIES, STORIES ABOUT GREAT MIRACLES, MIRACLES THAT GOD HAS DONE IN MY LIFE. OVER 10 YEARS AGO, I HAD GOTTEN VERY VERY SICK, SO MY MOM RUSHED ME TO THE HOSPITAL, AND THE FIRST TIME A DOCTOR LOOKED AT ME, HE TOLD MY MOM, I’M NOT SURE WHAT JACKIE HAS YET, BUT BY THE LOOKS OF IT, I CAN TELL YOU SHE WILL BE ADMITTED IN TO THE HOSPITAL FOR AT LEAST 3 WEEKS, AND BOY WAS HE RIGHT, I WAS NOT ADMITTED FOR 3 WEEKS, I WAS ADMITTED FOR OVER 3 MONTHS!!!! I HAD A VERY BAD BLOOD INFECTION, AND FOR THE FIRST 2 MONTHS, THE DOCTORS COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHERE THE SOURCE OF THIS INFECTION WAS COMING FROM, AND WHY I WAS SO SICK, AND WHY THIS INFECTION WAS SO OUT OF CONTROL, AND GETTING WORSE AS THE DAYS WENT BY. FINALLY ONE DAY THE LORD SHOWED MY MOM, THAT SOMETHING WAS HAPPENING WITH MY LIVER, AND I KEPT SAYING I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH MY SHUNT, WHICH IS THE SURGICAL DRAINAGE TUBE, THAT IS IN MY HEAD, AND GOES ALL THE WAY DOWN IN TO MY STOMACH. THE DOCTORS KEPT DOING CAT SCANS OF THE TOP PART OF MY HEAD, AND WOULD ONLY GO TO MY CHEST, BUT NEVER DID A CAT SCAN OF MY FULL BODY, AND BECAUSE OF THAT THEY KEPT SAYING THEY SEEN NOTHING THERE!! ME, AND MY MOM KEPT TELLING THEM TO PLEASE DO A FULL BODY SCAN, DON’T JUST DO THE TOP PART OF MY BODY, BUT THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN TO US!! NOW HERE’S THE COOL PART, THE GOD PART OF THE STORY. I WENT FOR ANOTHER CAT SCAN, THIS HAD BEEN PROBABLY ABOUT MY 10Th SCAN THEY DID, AND ONCE AGAIN, THEY ORDERED FOR THE SAME THING, THE MACHINE WENT TO THE TOP OF MY HEAD, AND DOWN TO ABOUT MY CHEST, AND THAT’S IT, BUT EVEN THOUGH THAT MACHINE WAS ONLY ORDERED TO LOOK SO FAR, GOD HAD ORDERED IT TO GO FURTHER!! THE MACHINE WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO TAKE A PICTURE OF MY HEAD, AND CHEST, BUT BY ACCIDENT, IT WENT A INCH LOWER THAN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO, AND BECAUSE OF THAT IT CAUGHT A PICTURE OF THE TIP OF MY LIVER, AND THEY SEEN WHAT WAS WRONG, I HAD AN ABSCESS THAT HAD FORMED ON MY LIVER, THE TUBING TO MY SHUNT WAS WRAPPED AROUND MY LIVER, AND THAT’S HOW THE ABSCESS HAD FORMED. IF IT WAS NOT FOR THAT MACHINE MESSING UP, AND GOING A INCH LOWER, THAN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO GO, I WOULD BE DEAD!!!! THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MINE OR MY PARENTS MIND, THAT GOD MADE THAT MACHINE MESS UP, AND BECAUSE OF THAT MACHINE MESSING UP, I AM ALIVE!!!!!!!! GOD IS SO AWESOME!!!!! I AM A RESULT OF HOW AMAZING GODS GRACE IS. IF ANYONE READS THIS, AND IN THEIR HEARTS, ARE QUESTIONING, GOD, AND HIS LOVE, JUST READ MY STORIES, BECAUSE YOU CANNOT LOOK AT ME, AND NOT SEE HOW AMAZING GOD IS. I WAS SUPPOSED TO DIE AT LEAST 10 TIMES BY NOW, BUT GOD HAS KEPT ME ALIVE!!!!!!!! HE SAVES ME EVERY DAY!!! IF YOU TRULY KNEW HIS LOVE I PROMISE YOU, YOU WOULD BE SO AMAZED. THERE IS A SCRIPTURE IN THE BIBLE ITS LUKE 18: 1-8 WHERE JESUS TELLS HIS PEOPLE TO ALWAYS PRAY, AND NOT GIVE UP!! WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE THE MIRACLES THAT GOD CAN DO, THERE IS JUST NO DENYING HIM. LIKE I SAID ILL BE SHARING MIRACLES HE HAS DONE IN MY LIFE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, BUT PLEASE SHARE WITH ME, IF YOU HAVE A STORY OF A MIRACLE THAT GODS DONE FOR YOU, PLEASE WRITE TO MY SITE, AND SHARE IT WITH ME, AND ALL WHO READ MY BLOG. I LOVE HEARING ABOUT GODS MIRACLES, SO PLEASE ALL ARE WELCOMED TO SHARE STORIES, IT DOESN’T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE JUST ME SHARING LOL.

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 7) DEDICATED TO MY PARENTS THOM AND SHELLIE YAFANARO

November 27, 2010

HI ALL. SORRY FOR LATE START AGAIN, WAS BUSY DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS WITH MY MOM. I GOT A LETTER THE OTHER DAY FROM A NEW MOMMY WHOSE CHILD HAS O.I, SHE HAD ASKED ME TO TALK MORE ABOUT MY PARENTS, AND TALK ABOUT THE TYPE OF PERSON I AM BECAUSE OF THEM, SO THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT TODAY, I HAD BEEN WANTING TO DO IT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW, JUST WAS WAITING ON GODS TIMING, AND I FEEL THAT TIME IS NOW!! WOW WHERE DO I BEGIN, WELL FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF IT WERE NOT FOR THEM, EVERYTHING I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH OUT MY LIFE, I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE GREAT EXAMPLE THAT THEY HAVE SET OUT FOR NOT ONLY ME, BUT ALSO MY BROTHER, AND SISTER. THEY HAVE TAUGHT US HOW TO LOVE, AND TAUGHT US ABOUT WHAT TRUE LOVE IS, AND WHO OUR TRUE LOVE SHOULD BE, WHICH IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO NEVER BE ASHAMED OF THE PERSON I AM, MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO ALWAYS HAVE A OPEN HEART TOWARDS OTHERS, AND TO ALWAYS PUT GOD BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE, EVEN BEFORE OUR SELVES. MY MOM IS A WONDERFUL MOTHER/CAREGIVER, AND BEST FRIEND TO ME. BOTH MY PARENTS HAVE GIVEN THEIR ALL IN TO TAKING CARE OF ME, AND GIVEN ME THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU ALL READ MY PAST BLOGS, BUT IF YOU DID, YOU WILL SEE ONE FROM A WEEK AGO, WHERE I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND SICK, I WAS SICK FOR ALMOST 3 DAYS, MY MOTHER STAYED UP WITH ME FOR ALL THAT TIME CARING FOR ME, AND COMFORTING ME. THAT IS JUST THE TYPE OF PERSON SHE IS, SHES ALWAYS CARING FOR OTHERS, BOTH MY PARENTS DEFINITELY HAVE A SERVANT’S HEART. MY DAD HAS ALWAYS TAUGHT ME, TO BE MYSELF, NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY OR THINK, DON’T LET IT BOTHER YOU, YOU KNOW THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE, AND GOD WILL SHOW YOU IF THERE ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO CHANGE WITH IN YOU. THOSE ARE JUST TWO OR THREE THINGS THAT MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME. ONE OF MY TWO MORE SPECIAL MEMORIES FROM WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, WAS WHEN MY DAD CAME HOME FROM WORK ONE DAY, AND GAVE ALL US GIRLS WHICH MEANS ME MY SISTER AND MOM, THIS HEART JEWELRY, MINE WAS A RING, AND MY SISTERS, AND MOMS I THINK WAS BRACELETS, AND WHEN HE GAVE IT TO US, HE TOLD US HE WANTED US TO ALWAYS WHERE IT, SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW HIS HEART WAS ALWAYS WITH US, MY DAD WOULD ALWAYS DO SPECIAL THINGS LIKE THAT FOR US. AFTER I GOT OLDER THOUGH, AND IN TO MY TEEN YEARS, MY RING STARTED TO GET SMALL, AND MY MOM KEPT TRYING TO GET IT OFF ME BUT I WOULDN’T TAKE IT OFF, SO FOR MY,  I THINK IT WAS 16TH BIRTHDAY, MY PARENTS HAD A HEART SHAPED RING MADE FOR ME, AND IT HAS 4 HEARTS ON IT, AND MY PARENTS TOLD ME, THAT EACH HEART REPRESENTED SOMEONE, ONE HEART WAS MY MOMS, ONE HEART WAS MY DADS, ONE HEART WAS MINE, AND ONE WAS THE LORDS, AND THEY TOLD ME THEY WANTED ME TO ALWAYS WEAR THAT, SO I KNEW THAT THEIR HEARTS WERE ALWAYS WITH MINE, I HAVE NEVER TAKEN THAT RING OFF. THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE MY PARENTS SO GREAT, AND MAKE ME THE PERSON I AM. SINCE YESTERDAY WAS THANKSGIVING, MY TIP FOR TODAY IS TO TRULY THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR GRATEFUL FOR. I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY PARENTS. I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF NOT FOR THEM. I AM SO THANKFUL GOD PICKED THEM TO BE MY PARENTS, I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE IF IT WERE NOT FOR CHRIST JESUS. I’M SO THANKFUL THAT MY PARENTS WERE INTRODUCED TO GODS LOVE, AS YOUNG ADULTS, AND THAT THEY WERE THAN ABLE TO INTRODUCE ME TO THAT SAME KIND OF LOVE. BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL THAT’S ALL MY TIP IS FOR TODAY. GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS 🙂

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 6)

November 24, 2010

HI ALL. I’M SO SORRY I’M RUNNING SO LATE ON WRITING MY BLOG, ITS BEEN A VERY HECTIC DAY LOL. I SPENT TIME TODAY WITH MY MOM, AND SISTER, WHILE THEY GOT STUFF READY FOR TOMORROWS BIG THANKSGIVING DINNER. MY TIP FOR TODAY IS TO BE KIND TO OTHERS, AND NOT BE SO JUDGMENTAL, AND JUST PLAIN RUDE. ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO I WAS IN A MALL SHOPPING FOR BABY CLOTHES FOR MY FIRST, AND SOON TO BE NIECE.  AS WE WERE SHOPPING WE DECIDED TO GO GET A PRETZEL, AND COOKIE, AND CHILL OUT ON ONE OF THE BENCHES, AND AS WE WERE SITTING THERE THIS LADY, NO OLDER THAN LATE 50’s EARLY 60’s,  SHE GOES TO WALK BY ME, AND SHE STOPS DEAD IN HER TRAPS, AND TURNS AROUND, AND WALKS RIGHT OVER TO ME, AND LITERALLY STARES RIGHT IN TO MY FACE, PEOPLE CAN BE SO RUDE TO THE DISABLED. INSTEAD OF STARING AT US OR LOOKING AT US LIKE WE ARE FROM ANOTHER PLANET, WHY DON’T YOU TALK TO US LIKE A HUMAN BEING? SO MANY PEOPLE THINK IF YOUR IN A WHEELCHAIR OR ARE SMALL, YOU GOT TO TALK TO US LIKE WERE BRAIN DEAD OR SOMETHING. WE HAVE A BRAIN PEOPLE!!! WE CAN THINK FOR OUR SELVES!!! INSTEAD OF STARING AT US, TALK TO US, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS WE WILL MOST LIKELY BE ABLE TO ANSWER THEM. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT ALL DISABLED PEOPLE, BUT I DO KNOW WITH MYSELF ID RATHER YOU ASKED ME STUFF THAN JUST LOOK AT ME LIKE I’M A FREAK. I CAN UNDERSTAND IF KIDS STARE AT US, BUT I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY AN ADULT WOULD? IF YOUR AN ADULT, START ACTING LIKE IT!! ESPECIALLY THE CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD, I’M SORRY TO SAY BUT YOU ALL CAN BE JUST AS BAD, WHICH IS EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL, BECAUSE YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE BETTER THAN THAT. WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARK REMEMBER? SO MY TIP FOR TODAY IS THOSE OF YOU WHO REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACT AROUND DISABLED PEOPLE. MY TIP IS, IF YOU SEE A DISABLED PERSON DON’T STARE ITS SO SO RUDE, AND HURTFUL, AND IF YOU SEE ONE, DON’T BE AFRAID TO GO UP, AND TALK TO THEM LIKE HUMAN BEINGS.  MYSELF FOR INSTANCE I’M 25 INCHES TALL, I GOT SO MANY PEOPLE THAT MAY COME UP, AND TRY TO TALK TO ME, BUT THAN WILL BLOW IT, BECAUSE THEY TRY TALKING TO ME LIKE I’M A 4 YEAR OLD LITTLE KID LOL. COME ON WORLD YOUR SMARTER THAN THAT. ALL WE WANT IS TO BE TREATED OUR AGE, AND NOT BE JUDGED BY OUR LOOKS. YOU HEAR ON THE NEWS ALL THE TIME NOW, IF A KIDS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY THEIR GETTING PHYSICALLY, AND MENTALLY BEAT UP TO THE POINT THEY DON’T EVEN WANT TO LIVE ANYMORE, THAT IS SO SO SO SAD. A CHILD SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FEEL LIKE THE ONLY WAY TO GET NOTICED OR RESPECTED IS BY  BEING RUDE TO OTHER KIDS!! WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ATTACK EACH OTHER WE ARE SUPPOSED TO LOVE EACH OTHER, AND ITS SAD THAT MOST KIDS OUT THERE DON’T KNOW THAT. THESE KIDS ARE ATTACKING OTHER KIDS BECAUSE MORE THAN LIKELY THEY ARE LEARNING ALL THAT IN THEIR OWN HOMES, AND I KNOW FOR MYSELF I CAN UNDERSTAND IT, I SEE IT EVERY DAY WITH ADULTS, JUST BY HOW THEY TREAT ME OR OTHER DISABLED PEOPLE, SO IF AN ADULT CAN DO THAT TO A DISABLED PERSON, AND THEIR CHILD SEE’S THAT, THAN OF COURSE THE KIDS GOING TO GO IN A SCHOOL, AND DO THAT SAME THING TO ANYONE THAT’S DIFFERENT, ITS CALLED LEARN BEHAVIOR PEOPLE!!! I AM SO THANKFUL MY PARENTS TAUGHT ALL OF US TO BE RESPECTED, AND BE RESPECTFUL, TO EVEN PEOPLE THAT MAY LOOK OR ACT DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE ARE USED TO. MY PARENTS TAUGHT US TO NOT JUDGE OTHERS. THEY SHOWED US WE CANT CONTROL WHAT OTHERS THINK OR DO, ALL WE CAN CONTROL IS OUR SELVES. THAT’S REALLY ALL I GOT TO SHARE FOR TODAY, IT ISN’T MUCH, BUT ITS ALL I FELT THE LORD SHOWED ME TODAY. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED THANKSGIVING. I WILL MORE THAN LIKELY NOT BE BLOGGING TOMORROW, I’M PROBABLY TAKING THE DAY OFF LOL. BUT PLEASE KEEP COMING TO THE SITE, THERE’S MANY THINGS TO READ, AND LOOK AT. PLEASE ANYONE THAT READS THIS BLOG I ASK THAT THEY BE BLESSED IN JESUS NAME. GOD BLESS, AND HAPPY TURKEY DAY 🙂 P.S I KNOW THERE ARE ALLOT OF TYPOS, BUT WAS TRYING TO GET THIS DONE IN A HURRY SO I APOLOGIZE

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 5)

November 23, 2010

WOW WELL THERE IS JUST SO MUCH RUNNING THROUGH MY LITTLE HEAD LATELY, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN LOL. AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, MY ALL TIME FAVE CHRISTIAN SINGER MADE ME AND MY FAMILY A VIDEO YESTERDAY, AND THE MESSAGE BEHIND IT WAS TO BE THANKFUL, THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING IN LIFE EVEN THE LITTLE THINGS,. SHE GAVE A SCRIPTURE VERSE IN THE VIDEO WHICH IS, 1 THESSALONIANS 5 16-18, SHE, AND ALL OF US IN THE VIDEO, WERE ALSO TRYING TO SHOW YOU ALL TO NOT GIVE UP, FIGHT BACK, AND BELIEVE IN HIS WORD, HIS PEACE, HIS JOY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HIS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANOTHER SCRIPTURE SHE PUT IN THE VIDEO IS MARK 9 VERSE 23 IT SAYS ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF A PERSON BELIEVES!!!! BELIEVES IN WHO? OUR LORD OF COURSE!!! SO MY TIP FOR TODAY IS JUST BELIEVE, AND BE THANKFUL THAT WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE WE CAN BE FREE TO BELIEVE!!!! IT IS SO EASY FOR US WHEN THINGS ARE NOT GOING RIGHT IN LIFE TO GET ANGRY AND MAD, AND NOT BE ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE LIFE THAT CHRIST HAS MADE FOR US. REMEMBER HE DIED, AND ROSE AGAIN FOR OUR SINS, OUR TROUBLES OUR HEART ACHE. SO WHEN YOU THINK OF THE BIG PICTURE HOW COULD YOU NOT BE THANKFUL. HE GAVE US LIFE, SO WHO CARES IF YOU GOT A BILLION THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS, I HEAR SO MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN CAUSE THEY GOT TO GET THIS DONE OR THAT DONE, AND ARE PANICKING CAUSE THEY ONLY GOT SO MUCH TIME TO DO IT. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THAT STUFF? REALLY COME ON? YOU WILL GET EVERYTHING DONE THERE’S NO REASON TO GET DEPRESSED IF YOU DON’T. RIGHT NOW IN MY HOUSE HOLD MY MOM HAS TO TAKE CARE OF ME WHO IS SICK, MY GRANDPA, AND MY DADS BUSINESS, AND STILL MAKE A THANKSGIVING DINNER, OH AND DID I MENTION OUR VANS IN SUCH BAD SHAPE SHE LITERALLY HAS TO PRAY BEFORE SHE GETS IN IT TO MAKE SURE SHE GETS THERE SAFELY LOL. MY POINT IS THOUGH EVEN THOUGH WE GOT STRUGGLES EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE TRIALS YOU WILL NOT SEE US FREAKING OUT OVER IT, BECAUSE WE KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF LIFE, AND WE SEE THE MIRACLES GOD HAS DONE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. DON’T GET ME WRONG YES THERE ARE BAD DAYS WHERE WE TOO JUST WANT TO GIVE UP, AND NOT FIGHT BACK, BUT WE GOT TO FIGHT BACK. PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME, WELL IF THIS GOD YOU SPEAK OF IS REAL WHY DOESN’T HE DO SOMETHING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER? REMEMBER THE BIBLE OR GOD NEVER SAID LIFE WAS GOING TO BE EASY!!! THE BIBLE TELLS US THERE WILL BE STRUGGLES, AND HARD TIMES. THERE’S MANY STORIES IN THE BIBLE, THAT TALK ABOUT STRUGGLES, AND HARD TIMES. LOOK AT THE BOOK OF RUTH EVEN, I KNOW YOUR ALL PROBABLY SAYING THE BOOK OF RUTH? WHY SHE GOT WHAT SHE WANTED AND NEEDED IN THE END RIGHT? WELL YES THAT’S TRUE, BUT IT DIDN’T INSTANTLY HAPPEN, HER LIFE WAS TORN APART, AND SHE HAD NOTHING LEFT TO LIVE FOR, BUT DID SHE GIVE UP? NO SHE DIDN’T, SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP, SHE MADE A CHOICE OF NOT GIVING UP, AND EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS HEART BROKEN BY THE LOSS, SHE STILL PICKED UP THE PIECES OF HER LIFE, SHE EVEN TOOK CARE OF HER MOTHER IN LAW. DEEP DOWN RUTH KNEW THAT GOD WAS IN CONTROL. THAT’S HOW WE NEED TO LIVE, WE NEED TO STOP DWELLING ON THINGS, GOD HAS OUR LIVES ALREADY PLANNED OUT FOR US!!! IF WE LISTEN AND OBEY HIS WORD, WHAT GOD HAS FOR OUR LIVES WILL COME TO PASS. IN THE BEGINNING OF THE LORDS PRAYER IT SAYS WHAT? OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN HALLOWED BE THY NAME THY KINGDOM COME THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. DOES ANYONE GET WHAT THAT MEANS? THAT MEANS WHATEVER GOD HAS FOR US IN HEAVEN, WE DON’T NEED TO WAIT TILL WERE IN HEAVEN TO GET IT, WE CAN HAVE WHAT IS IN HEAVEN RIGHT HERE ON EARTH!!! WE JUST NEED TO BELIEVE BELIEVE BELIEVE BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!! STAND FIRM ON HIS WORD, ANY TIME NEGATIVE THINGS COME TO PASS GET OUT THAT BIBLE QUOTE THOSE SCRIPTURES, AND SAY NO TO ANY NEGATIVITY OR BAD THING THAT TRIES TO ATTACK YOU, AND YOUR LIFE. PSALMS 50 VERSE 3-4 SAYS OUR GOD APPROACHES AND HE IS NOT SILENT FIRE DEVOURS EVERYTHING IN HIS WAY, AND A GREAT STORM RAGES AROUND HIM. THAT’S HOW POWERFUL OUR GOD CAN BE, HE IS FIGHTING WITH YOU, HE IS FIGHTING FOR YOU. SO PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD AND FIGHT OFF ANY BAD THING THAT’S IN YOUR WAY.  THAT IS MY TIP FOR TODAY. I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED DAY, I ASK THAT GOD TOUCHES THE HEARTS OF WHO EVER READS THIS IN JESUS NAME

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 4)

November 22, 2010

WELL I KNOW ITS BEEN A FEW DAYS SINCE I HAVE GIVEN MY LITTLE TIPS, BUT AS YOU ALL KNOW ITS BEEN A HECTIC AND INSANE WEEK FOR ME LOL, SO I JUST DIDN’T HAVE THE TIME OR ENERGY TO DO IT LOL. I ALSO FELT GOD WAS LEADING ME TO WRITE OTHER THINGS, AND I DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE YOU ALL TO MUCH TO READ IN ONE DAY LOL. YESTERDAY I GOT A LETTER FROM A PRISCILLA SHE HAS A DAUGHTER WITH O.I, I SEEN PIX OF HER LITTLE GIRL YESTERDAY SHE IS SO SO BEAUTIFUL SHE NO MORE THAN A FEW MONTHS OLD I THINK. PRISCILLA HAD ASKED ME TO TALK ABOUT, AND GIVE ADVICE TO NEW MOMS WHO HAVE A BABY WITH O.I, AND ARE STILL LEARNING HOW TO HANDLE CERTAIN DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS, FOR INSTANCE WHEN YOUR BABY HAS TO GO FOR BLOOD WORK OR FOR ITS VACCINATION SHOTS WHAT DO YOU DO??? LIKE IN HER CASE SHE HAD HER DAUGHTER GET THE SHOTS, AND THAN WHEN SHE CAME HOME SHE REALIZED THAT HER BABY MUST OF BROKEN HER LEG FROM GETTING THESE SHOTS. SO WHAT DO YOU DO? DO YOU RISK IT AND GO THROUGH WITH THE SHOTS OR DO YOU SAY NO, AND NOT GET THE SHOTS? I KNOW SOME PEOPLE MAYBE SAYING THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME TO TALK ABOUT, BUT TO SOME NEW MOTHERS IT ISN’T. IN MY CASE I GOT THE SHOTS, WAS IT A RISK YES, BUT SOME TIMES YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT WHATS WORSE, TAKING THE RISK OF BREAKING ONE OR TWO BONES, OR GETTING SOME DEADLY VIRUS THAT MAYBE THE SHOT COULD OF PREVENTED. THAT GOES FOR ANYTHING IN LIFE WHEN YOU HAVE O.I THOUGH. ME AND MY PARENTS HAD TO FINALLY LEARN, OK WE CAN PUT ME IN A BUBBLE, AND WORRY ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING THAT COULD BREAK MY BONES, OR THEY COULD LET ME LEARN WHAT I CAN DO, AND NOT DO, AND ACTUALLY LIVE OUT MY LIFE. ARE WE CAREFUL? YES OF COURSE, DO WE WORRY AT TIMES? YES OF COURSE WE DO, BUT IF YOU SIT THERE AND WORRY ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING THAT COULD BREAK A PERSON WITH O.I BONES THAN YOU WILL EVENTUALLY DRIVE YOUR SELF CRAZY!!! MY MOM WAS MOSTLY MY CAREGIVER SO AFTER AWHILE SHE GOT USED TO MY BONES AND MY BODY, AND HAD LEARNED JUST HOW MUCH PRESSURE SHE COULD PUT ON ME WITHOUT BREAKING ME. SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU ALL IS, STILL DON’T LET A NURSE OR DOCTOR TOUCH YOUR KID UNLESS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THEM DOING SO, AND YOUR SURE THAT THEY KNOW ALL THEY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT O.I, CAUSE YES THERE ARE EVEN DOCTORS OUT THERE THAT DON’T KNOW ALLOT ABOUT O.I. ALSO IF YOUR BABY HAS TO GET A SHOT SEE IF THE NURSE WILL LET YOU DO LIKE MY NURSES LET MY MOM DO. MY MOM MOVED MY LEGS FOR THEM AND HELD THEM DOWN WHEN THEY NEEDED HER TO, THEY DID NOT ACTUALLY TOUCH ME ALL THEY DID WAS BASICALLY PUT THE NEEDLES IN. ALSO IF YOUR CHILD EVER NEEDS BLOOD WORK, MAKE SURE THAT THEY DO NOT PUT THE RUBBER BAND TO TIGHT, THEY CAN NOT PUT IT TIGHT AROUND A O.I CHILD’S ARMS OR LEGS LIKE THEY COULD THE AVERAGE CHILD, SO ALWAYS MAKE SURE IT ISN’T TO TIGHT TO WHERE YOUR CHILD WILL GET HURT. NOW PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THOUGH THAT THESE RULES DO NOT APPLY FOR ALL O.I CHILDREN THESE RULES ARE FOR SEVERE CASES OF O.I OR AT LEAST PARTIALLY SEVERE. WELL THAT’S MY TIP FOR TODAY. HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT, GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS, WITH LOVE JACKIE 🙂

P.S PLEASE GO WATCH THE VIDEO SOMEONE MADE OF ME, AND MY LIFE ITS ON FACEBOOK FOR NOW, BUT AM TRYING TO LOAD IT ON TO BLOG SITE SOON, FOR NOW THOUGH GO ON FACEBOOK AND SEE IT, YOU CAN GO TO MY FACEBOOK PAGE TYPE IN JACKIE YAFANARO AND I SHOULD POP UP HEHEHE. OK THANKS AGAIN, GOD BLESS

I’m Blessed. Are you? (Update on Me)

November 20, 2010

I’m sorry I haven’t been writing my tip of the day the past few days, but I have a good excuse lol. As most of you already know the past two years or so have been a struggle. I have had many medical issues that my doctors cannot figure out 😦 well it happened again. This past Wednesday I woke up at around 8:00Am to post on my blog page, and while I was writing everything up I felt fine, I felt like my old self, after I was done writing on my blog page I said well let me take a nap, so I took a nap, and I did not wake up until 1:00pm. When I woke up I instantly knew I was getting sick, my heart was pounding and I just felt very light headed, I knew something bad was coming, so I immediately went to my facebook page and asked a few people that I knew to please keep me in prayer, after I wrote those 4 or 5 words on facebook I just got so sick I couldn’t move or speak. I got very very sick to my stomach, could not hold anything down not even my meds. So to make a long story short, by id say 11:00Am the following day I was admitted in to the hospital for a little over 24 hours, they pumped me up with my meds, and fluids and I finally started to feel a little more like myself again, but the sad thing is once again they still do not know why I got so sick, they ran all kinds of cat scans, and blood work but it all came back NORMAL!!! which I know I know is a good thing but yet a little bit of a frustrating thing because that means this has a chance of happening again, after I came home I was very very happy to be home but a little sad because I thought oh great once again they found nothing, and of course I started to in a way throw a small pity party for myself, and than of course GOD did what he always does and smacked me upside the head and said WAKE UP SISTER!!! LOL. When I got home I went to my emails and seen two letters from two different people that I’m, I guess you would say pen pals with on line, one lady was from the O.I website which is a website that’s directed for people with my disease to go to so you can learn about O.I or meet others with the disease, and the other website is just a facebook page for disabled/sick people to go to, to talk or vent, so I opened the first letter and it was from the disabled/sick people page and she was telling me that her daughter had passed away and lost the battle to melanoma I do not know much about these people and do not know much about Melanoma, the only thing the family would ever share on line was that their daughter had Melanoma and they needed as much prayer from others as they could get, even though I did not know this young girl I still felt very bad, and felt like just from that one email GOD already sent me back to reality. I than opened up the second email, and sadly it was pretty much the same story except this one even touched me more, and really hit home, because this was a baby only a few months old if that. The mother had started to contact me before she even gave birth to the baby, she had contacted me because she seen my name on the O.I site and wanted to get a better understanding about O.I, so I had started to answer any questions she had, and started to become friends with her on line. This woman was so excited to be a mother she did not care that she was going to have to take care of a sick baby, she just wanted any and all info she could on caring for one. The baby was born in August not even 5 days after my birthday, and she was born with type2 O.I which is I think the most severe type and very similar to my type. The doctors do not know my exact type because I’m as bad as type 2 people but I have lived much longer than type 2 O.I’ERS so we don’t know. When my friends baby was born the doctors told her and her family the same thing they told mine, that this baby was not surviving past 2 weeks and after about 2 weeks of her being on a breathing machine and no change the Doctors told the family they had to make a decision of turning off the machines. This families story was much like mine except I lived. So after I got home and saw those two emails and really started thinking and praying, I said the heck with it all LORD, so they didn’t find out why I get so sick, all my tests still came out fine!!! which is a huge huge blessing. So I throw up once in awhile, who cares I can deal with it. These two woman buried their daughters before they ever even had a chance at life!!! there cant be any worse heart breaking situation than that. So I will not choose to sit around feeling sorry for myself saying why cant I do this or why cant I do that, or why does this have to happen, no no no no no no. I will not let stupid negative waste of time things take control over me. I will choose to say I am blessed. What I would like to say to all of you who read this is no matter what you may go through, no matter how bad your circumstances are, just know that you will get through it as long as you choose to have the LORD on your side. I’m determined not to let the bad situations in my life get to me. That determination that I have you can have to if you just put your full trust in the LORD and apply his word to your every day life, if you do that than you will be able to reach the goals that he has for your life, and you will be able to see that all things are possible!!!! whatever tomorrow brings for me I am happy knowing that I will wake up and be home in my house with my family or I will be in heaven with the LORD, because I know that he is there for me, HE IS HOLDING US ALL IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND REMEMBER THAT any time you feel alone in life know that he is there. In the end of today’s blog I hope I leave you all with the understanding of how important life!!! is, it is up to you on how you want to live it. I choose to be happy I know I live a very happy, and fulfilled life. I am blessed, I AM BLESSED I AM BLESSED TO HAVE THE PARENTS I HAVE, I AM BLESSED TO HAVE THE FAMILY I HAVE. I AM BLESSED TO HAVE THE DOCTORS AND NURSES THAT CARE FOR MY MEDICAL NEEDS, I AM BLESSED TO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE MANY WONDERFUL AND AMAZING THINGS THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED, AND MOST OF ALL I AM BLESSED TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND BELIEVE. If there’s anything I could share with you it is to be grateful for the life that GOD has given you, no matter what life may bring to you all YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE BLESSED. Mostly I do thank GOD that he chose me to be who I am today. I have never blamed GOD or anyone else for having this disease. I have only thanked GOD for giving me the chance at LIFE, and giving me the opportunity to find out what life is really about.     I do consider myself blessed
