BLESSED!!! (DEDICATED TO MY ENTIRE FAMILY)

NUMBERS 6:24-26

THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU;

THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE ON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;

THE LORD TURN HIS FACE TOWARD YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE

Hi all.  Well this week has been one crazy week!!! I am sorry I didn’t do a blog this week, its been very hectic here.  I have lots of announcements, some good some bad lol.  Lets see where do I begin? Well to start with, the guy from Gospel innovation kept his promise!!! he made me 3 different banners/logo’s to pick from, but I am in love with all 3 and am having a awfully hard time deciding which one I want to become the official THE-BOOK-OF-ROO banner/logo, so I am asking all my THE-BOOK-OF-ROO people to help me out and vote for which banner/logo you like best, to vote just go to this website  http://www.pollsb.com/polls/p2182308-poll_the_book_of_roo_decided_upgrade_the

The second announcement is, I became an aunt for the first time! a baby girl!! she was born this past Friday April 1St she is so cute and my first name is her middle name isn’t that cute? 🙂 she has inspired me to make the video above that is of my family, please watch this video you will all love it 🙂

The third thing is more a prayer request than an announcement, but after the baby was born, me and my mom planned on spending most of the week at my sisters to get to know the new baby, but sadly on our way to the hospital the day after she was born, we all heard this big POP  and later we found out that Popping sound came from our van!! I do not know all the technical details, but bottom line is after 13 years our van finally gave out on us 😦 so I am asking, no I am begging, please all be praying for us, that some way or another GOD works some kind of miracle and we our able to get a new van!!!

You know these past few days the LORD has really been teaching me how to enjoy the many blessings HE gives us freely every day. When that van broke down, sure me, mom and dad could of got angry and let that ruin the babies home coming and we could have let that take our JOY away, but we didn’t, because we knew what was important, we knew what mattered and that was that my sister and her baby were healthy and on their way home!!!  I may not be rich in material things but I am rich, I am blessed with things that are much more important.

It took a lot of strength and courage for my sister and her husband to go through with having a baby, because for a very long time we were not sure how safe it was for her to have one, because of all my medical issues.  You all have heard me say before that the past 3 years have been hard and I have been sick  and have been through a lot and been in and out of the hospital, but the one good thing that came out of all that, was the fact that since I was in there so much, my sister had asked me if I wouldn’t mind getting a genetic DR to come look at me, of course I said no problem, my sister would do anything for me so its the least I could have done for her.

So the Doctor came and did some blood work, and through all that we found out which type of Osteogenisis Imperfecta I had and also found out that the type I had was not a hereditary thing, it was not something that could get passed down to any future baby!!! which was a huge relief to my whole family including me.

I am very thankful for my life and have no complaints but I do know how hard it is to live with Osteogenisis Imperfecta, not just on the person with the disease, but also for the entire family.

Having a disease of any kind really does transform the entire family.  All I can say is you have the choice as to how it transforms you? Me and my family choose to have it make us stronger!!

Like you all have heard before I was not supposed to live past 10 days!!! 10 days!!! there were so many things I was told I would not live through.  So many times I was told I would not have the chance to experience LIFE.  I never in a million years thought I would out live family members and friends that I loved.

Never did I think id have a chance to experience the things in life that I have been blessed to experience.  I remember as a kid praying and saying OK GOD just need to make it a few more years to see my brother get married and than id say OK GOD a few more years to see my sister graduate, and so on and so on.  I have always been at peace and have known that my life is in GODS hands and whatever happens, happens.  What if GOD didn’t answer my prayers? what if he did take me home before I had a chance to see my niece, or my brother and sister get married? would I have been mad? would I have felt like GOD was a failure? Heck no!!! we can not control time, GOD is in control of my life, always has and always will.

My friend who I had asked you all to pray for a few weeks ago, the lady who was in the I.C.U, well she is home and doing fantastic.  She is doing so well that she actually had told my mom to tell me to read Psalms 91. Does anyone know Psalms 91?

Psalms 91 says: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. ” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.  You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.  If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.  For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

When I read that I was reminded of when I was younger and how any time things would get really bad, or scary, my parents and my one friend would read that scripture to me.  People ask me all the time why I think I have lived as long as I have? My answer is right there in Psalms 91, read it carefully and you will understand, it says: whoever dwells in the most high, which means whoever dwells in him will be under the LORDS covering.

So again we have a choice? we can dwell on the good or dwell on the bad? But if we dwell on the good, if we dwell on L.I.F.E the LORDS hand will be on us, no disease, no harm, nothing can touch us and we will have long LIFE in JESUS!!!

I am going to enjoy every minute I have and not waste time dwelling on stupid negative unimportant things.  What is important is L.I.F.E and what you do with it, you can be a blessing, a blessing to L.I.F.E, a blessing to the world.

L.I.F.E (LOVE IN FULL EFFECT) lets make a difference in this world, lets stop living in fear and get out our armor and sword and fight for L.I.F.E!!!

I am blessed because I have a family that loves me

I am blessed because I have a roof over my head and people who care for me

I am blessed because I am experiencing what L.I.F.E is

I am blessed because I have an amazing team of doctors who care for me

I am blessed because CHRIST carried my cross and died for my sins

I am blessed because I have the LOVE OF CHRIST IN ME

THAT’S IT FOR TODAY ENJOY ALL. GOD BLESS
