Thanks Paula & Charles


This is my blogger friend Paula and her husband Charles
with our son Elijah. They met Eli when he was in Juneau
where he was sent for testing. It meant so much to me that
they wanted to meet him and also offered to do whatever
they could to assist him while he was in Juneau. Isn't that
just amazing? Who would think that you would meet someone
through blogging that lives half way across North America, that
just happens to be in the same area where your son is sent for
medical help? I totally believe it was the hand of God that
orchestrated it all. I thank you Lord and many thanks to Paula
and Charles who obeyed his promptings.
For an update on Elijah: The CT scan supported the findings
from the ultra-sound. Now we wait to hear what the surgeon
advises. We hope to know something by next week. So I
would appreciate your continued prayers for Eli. It's such a
comfort to know so many of you are praying. And again, thank
you for your comments of concern. I will keep you posted  when
we know anything new.
Here is a view of Lake Superior from the deck. You can see the build-up of ice
where the rocky beach used to be. By the time the lake freeze over, the ice build
up can be as high as 6 feet. We have had a pack of wolves come over from the
island before.
You can see the hot tub in the forefront of this photo. It's battened down
for the winter. Although if you were a 'polar bear' you might think this was
the perfect time to be soaking in it's hot water. Not me!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends. And remember, if you haven't
received any comment from me lately, it's not because I haven't tried.
It is the new interfacing you may have changed over to. For info on
how to change back, please read Vee's  post for today. If you want to
change back, that is.


  1. The Lord is so good and so is Paula and Charles! Thanks for the update on Elijah..continued prayer. xo

  2. Just when you think that blogging is all about self-exploration, fun, decorating, crafting etc - you turn around and find out it's really all about connecting with people who may be a blessing to you and yours.

  3. Yep, God's hand is in it all. How wonderful of your blogging friends to be there for him!
    I am so thankful for my fellow bloggers...those who don't blog wouldn't understand what an awesome experience this is right?

    Keeping you all in prayer....


  4. Continued prayers for Elijah here. How wonderful and Paula and Charles were able to be there. Thank you for the update.

    Your view of the lake is pretty, although it does look mighty cold!

  5. I am continuing to pray for your son! And, yes, bloggers are amazing people. I wouldn't be out there in that hot tub either. For some bloggers it is as simple as switching to the pop up comment box. That's what I had to do and I tell how to do that on my blog..a few posts back! Have a great weekend- xo Diana

  6. will continue to pray for your son

  7. Isn't God amazing?! I'm so happy for you that your blog friend was there for Elijah. I will continue to pray for complete healing. Your views from the deck are gorgeous. Does the whole lake freeze over or just between you and the island off shore? I'm surprised you aren't the 'polar bear' types that love to hot tub in sub zero temperatures. :) Stay warm. Blessings, Pamela

  8. I will continue to pray for Eli. Dear friend just as you have come into my life when I needed comforting the most. So have these wonderful people opened their hearts to Eli and you.

  9. thats very cold looking water that is, I'm so sorry your son is going through this, I will keep him in my prayers, its so true i have made so many good friends through blogging, life long friends, have a great week end, stay warm

  10. Oh what a comfort that must have been to have such dear folks there to care for your son. The Lord is so good!!
    Prayers will continue.
    Hugs to you. :o)

  11. What beautiful photos! Looks cold!
    My prayers will be with your son! Bless those people's hearts for helping him!

  12. That is so nice of them! I hope Elijah finds the right treatment and starts to heal.

  13. I am always amazed at how God's hand is in our lives and of how he orchestrates everything, continued prayers for your son.

  14. Kimberly,
    I will keep Eli in my prayers..and that's so cool, that this lovely couple is stepping up to the plate to look out for him :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  15. Still praying for Eli...Isn't God Awesome. It is not by chance that you became blogging friends with Paula and Charles. It is not by chance that Eli was sent to their area. I do believe that this was God ordained and this is amazing. It is also amazing how when we follow the leading of the Lord, we are given the opportunity to Bless others.

    Beautiful scenery up your way...

  16. This post is full of excitment.
    Yes, we will lift up Eli until he is completly well.
    Blogging is such a blessing in so many ways. You have had a extended blessing with Charles and Paula. Wow!

    Thank you for posting the winter picture of the Lake. Unbelievable!

  17. That was so sweet and the lake looks like the Cook inlet...Have a wonderful Sunday!

  18. I am so behind in my blog reading...I will keep Eli in my thoughts and prayers...

  19. I love Bloggers and I am so happy that Paula and Charles were there with your son. God is so good. When people say things about how we shouldn't have friends we never meet, this is one of the reasons they are wrong, we have friends for those times in need.
    I will continue to pray.
    I have changed my blog and I hope you can leave comments now. My MIL can leave comments but they are only for my husband. :) She couldn't do that before. The pictures of the snow are amazing.

  23. I'm praying for your son, God is good, He sees where he is and what his needs are, doesn't he! How wonderful is that, that God would put just the right person in the right place at the right time.
    Hugs, Cindy

  24. Prayers for you son and for you--having to be apart from him now!

    God is good sending you angels to help him! :)
