BLOG  AND  SHE  IS  AN  ARTIST.   SHE  HAS  AN  ETSY  SHOP

WHERE  YOU  CAN  FIND  THE  BEAUTIFUL  TREASURES  SHE

CREATES.

SURGERY  WENT  WELL  AND  NOW  WE  PRAY  FOR  COMPLETE

HEALING  WITHOUT  INFECTION  OR  COMPLICATIONS.

What beautiful things! I know you are proud of those!
I'm so sorry about your friend, Bonnie. I always try to look over your prayer list. I have quite a long list of my own in my little book.
If you would email, me I'll tell you more details about the brain tumor, and we'll talk about your new machine. Woo hoo for you!

Hello Debbie,
thanbkyou so much for you nice words and becoming my 81st follower. I am now following you too and can't wait to see what bag you have created and your dress. I would have liked to do the dress but I have too much else going on
I just love the little yellow butterfly that is folowing my cursor around!!!!

Mariette said...

Dearest Debbie,

Thank you for your meaningful comment on Dad's birthday! If feels warm from someone living in this country that we adopted. Did you read my story of December 3; Today I turned 17? And October 10; the Miracle in Chile?
As for Pieter, he is miraculously recovered so well that he only needs to take 2 medications, down from 4. Our internal medicine doctor said he'd never seen a patient with such severe symptoms, with such lengthy surgery on so little medication! It must have been for prayers the world over as we have loved ones everywhere. Oh, I forgot one more story, or two... May 6; Liz Vedder our adopted daughter and May 7; Anita Anggraeni our Foster Daughter.
November 23; # 148 and my blog is 1 year old today. That will give you some more insight in whom I am.
In-between I try to get my Internet business (and by appointment only) on the rail for some income. I choose to stay with my husband and I thank God that I did so, looking back to what happened on September 3rd. But it is tough to start things off at this time but I'm determined and I trust in God and all our loved ones on the other side; I BELIEVE in that!!!

We need our prayers for those on your list and we both have so much to be grateful for; we have found true love and we got our health restored.

Lots of love,

Mariette's Back to Basics

Oh, I'm trying so hard not to be envious!!!! I especially love those little keys and that darling pinafore. Hope many sweet prayers go up for these people. God blessed me today with letting me get good news about my latest mammogram after some concern:) Have a great weekend.

Hi Debbie!
I am SO, SO, SO happy to hear that you are enjoying your goodies. You are such a kind soul and your prayers have meant the world to me. I have also sent a prayer up for the others on your prayer list. There are so many and how wonderful of you to share these prayer requests so that we can all join in and pray for each other!
Blessings and Hugs!
Sabre' :)
