So grateful for ALL

Every time I am on Twitter-I am able to smile from ear to ear knowing...God has placed so many amazing souls into my life that I am so ever grateful for. Both near and far. Some I have met...or am still to meet...some I may not meet here on Earth. But I sure will in Heaven. Until then, we get to enjoy our talks and prayers, discussions--thanking God that Twitter and Networking was created!!!
For all that were there in prayer for my surgery-- God bless you all!!! Know-that is my gift as well. I love to pray for all!! Always have since I found Christ!! (2003) I am grateful for all of you that said a small prayer, big prayer, tweeted, re-tweeted, called, sent cards/gifts etc etc etc. I am ever so grateful to you- the children of God- my friends thru Christ- who He heard and said "WOW-all is well-prayer answered!!" As I sit here, well, happy, seizure free one month after my surgery! God bless you all so dearly!! And I am grateful for all of you as my friends-whether you heard about it or not-Jesus did! You are all gifts to me!
I love to take a few names and shout out BIG THANKS-- as for this will go on till the day I die-and longer!! I am ever so thankful for you all!!! But I love to do it at least monthly!! So here we go!!!!!!
First off.... one very amazing, HUMBLE friend of mine- whom #1 - if SOMEHOW you aren't connected- please go to @KEV125 ... #2 you are ready to see how Jesus works in all circumstances--connect with Kevin!! #3 just grasp yourself for always receiving blessings thru his tweets-- he is walking tightly, side by side with Jesus!! He has been such an amazing soul in my twitter stream- one that will always brighten my day- whether I was seizing, having ex husband issues when he snagged my kid, or whether I am thrilled as ever and he is praising with me-- He is Kevin!! Whom is a rock-- one like Christ! And expect that to amaze you-- as it always has me!!
Now, there is my dear friend @BarbaraDuke ... I don't choose her-as for her first name, being my mother's... granted that is a plus! :) But she is one beautiful woman-both INSIDE and out!!! She will tag you with amazing words of wonder-in which you just didn't expect-then, even BAM out of no where, she'll send you surprises that are even deeper, more warm and touching that you'd wonder who was really behind her screen!!?? She is always so upbeat, loving, caring-one who is inspiring and loving at all costs and moments- she is Barbara- but more than that- she is my precious friend I thank God for!!!! You will too-- connect to her and see why!!!!
My dear friend- who snuck up on me out of the blue - @Advocacy4change - is one who will never bring you down on twitter, one who always brings me joy!! He always sees the bright side of me-and all others, thru everything we have to talk about and share. And he sees the beauty to come out of what we face, conquered, and endured! He can see the beauty God has planned, not reason to dwell! And I love that attitude! Such a BIG AMEN!! This one is one to connect to for uplifting experience! One who will always bring you smiles! 
My dear friend thru Christ @SLT23C is one very dear one thru Jesus! He is sure being guided by the Holy Spirit and what Christ has in plans! He is setting up- knowing His plans will unfold... as He sits praying for His next step in guidance! He sure is on fire and is excited to talk about his thoughts about how Jesus is working and His plans for him- I love to hear how Jesus DOES affect 17 yr olds ... and younger! I just didn't know! :) One amazing soul!
My precious friend I have been connected with for at least a year- @joyfulnspirit ! She has a precious marriage-ADORABLE KIDS- and the ONE THING I WAS ALWAYS AMAZED AT--- she HOME SCHOOLS, and always seems so uplifting, calm!! Now I know we all have our trials, and I am here for as many as possible, as many are for me... but you would never know with her-- she just keeps plugging away, with KINDNESS, LOVE, FAITH, and goodness--- HUMOR!! :) She keeps me on my toes! One dear soul who will always brighten your day!!!
Then @BJhewitt - who has such a heart!!! Such prayers!! Such care!! And also listens to all thoughts. He has, truly a sincere heart thru Christ- and an open heart for all thru Him. He is a prayer warrior for sure- one who has sure touched my soul thru that! He isn't one who fights... he is one who debates- listens- thinks out... but there is no one wrong or right. As for we don't know the answers till the end- Jesus will give us the low down. Till then we keep loving each other and sharing thoughts and definitely prayers! And when you talk to him- you'll see, how dear he is thru prayer!
One very precious soul who caught my tweet out of the blue- is a very kind-hearted friend, who knows what Epilepsy is like. Who knows the heart as a best friend. Who is strong in faith and prayer- my gift from God I thank Him for her dear tweets- @annNow ...  She Always brings me joy and smiles-- in all situations!! Very precious gift...
One I can't even explain, is truly from Jesus-- is @atmurdockjr  One who was very much there for ME-with such kind, humble words of prayer during my brain resection-- just out of the blue. And I responded to his amazing, uplifting responses-to my tweets of scripture-etc. And we got into a deep discussion on life- and he is one transparent soul, like me, that I thank God for. A Pastor so open. A Pastor of true Truth. One out there about all he WENT thru- and still goes thru.. but gets thru it, WITH CHRIST! I was amazed and touched at how glorified Christ is thru him and his family! And how blessed we are to be connected- one day, meet them! Amazing what brain surgery can bless you with!
Last one for tonight is my friend @2tir3d -- Rose-- she is one precious gift thru Jesus whom knows that the best is on the Other Side to come. That we may still have suffering to come- but we are to give it to Him, smile thru it all- and know HE DID SO MUCH MORE FOR US- TO LOVE US- TO SAVE US- and He takes it all- our pains will again, go away! But His love will always stay!! And Rose is one uplifting kind soul to share that love thru HIM. Reaching out making sure you remember!! And I thank God for her!! Be blessed- and connect!! 
Just know- I adore you all... and I try to get one out every 2 weeks to every month!!! I don't intentionally skip over any of you-- I just #1 have less brain...  :)  #2 will get to you all! :)  I adore you all!
Blessings!!!!
In His Grip,
Heather @AliveinMe

AWAKE



Yes... I did have AWAKE brain surgery February 12, 2010.. my 3rd brain resection. But that isn't why this is REALLY titled "AWAKE."

This is titled AWAKE for how awake I became-truly- to all of my dear twitter friends... the ones I knew closely, and the ones I either partially knew, or some I DID NOT KNOW AT ALL!! And when news zipped around about my surgery finally moving forward after over a year of waiting and prayer-tons of people were thrilled-at my twitter and facebook and even KelseyLive.com reaching out in prayer and love. To me, my family, etc. And this just touched my life for good. 
This is a way I have always been with others. Real reach-out person, in all circumstances. There the moment my seizures allow me to!! And when it all gets turned around, it sure, can be odd at first... but then you have to sit back-and praise God for bringing so many amazing souls into your life! Just thrilled for such kindness, humbleness, love, gentleness, all of it.... thru HIM! 

I sit back and praise God for my hubby @flyingchristian who was nothing but amazing!! Strong thru it all!! He posted updates thru my whole stay on my blog http://manyepilepsycures.blogspot.com  --kept his mind focused on Jesus-HIS PLANS-his faith in HIM- as opposed to worrying! PRAISE JESUS!! I love you and our precious daughter Tory so much....
Then there was amazing @SwitchingGranny who began this WILD, LOVING, ON FIRE, PRAYER CHAIN!!! #praying4Hetty --she is just such a doll.. amazing woman of Christ-that even through trials and strife of her own-she concentrates on the need of others... and Jesus smiles big, with amazing rewards for her to come! Starting with huge ((HUGS)) and love now--and an amazing seat with Him when she enters--and hugs HIM!! WOW-connect to her to feel some love!!
Then there is this precious friend @MarshaSpicer -- who kept very much in contact with me while I was in the hospital, and even today! She brings me so much joy with such kind, gentle, caring words... and then still goes on about ME being so humble and encouraging -- inspiring etc... when we both sit back and say NO-- that is ALL JESUS!! She knows... because she has been thru big surgeries.. and knows it is all the grace of God that sees us thru-- as we give it ALL TO HIM!
My awesome friend @Pecor ... she is just a sweet, true gift. One who has such KIND WORDS- ALL THE TIME TO ME. Has so much care for all!! Places others first. This is just true... when you hear the statement "a heart of gold." No matter what she ever goes thru-she has one of those for others-just full of such love and care... and I just have so much to give back to her! Talk about a friend!! True friends can be hard to come by-- but not this one!
Then the ever amazing @JKwallace  -- very dear friend thru Christ whom is a pastor's wife from TN... and so strong in her own walk-that she is amazing thru HIM to reach out to others! One that is on fire-and full of faith and love...will astound you!! This dear lady had her own medical pain-- but was all over my surgeries and long hospital stay--sending me flowers, cards, gifts for Valentines Day--even for my family!! She just never rested!! Kept in contact with me--- and still does!! I am so blessed! We may be far by states, but so near by HEART!!! AMAZING FRIEND THRU Jesus!
Then precious @DianeTate !!! Dear Lady who ALSO went thru the same type of AWAKE brain surgery I went thru this time-- at the Mayo Clinic also with I doctor I know up at the MN Hospital. She came out FULLY recovered-- had some time to adapt and recover-- but she is recovered as a new person-- all thanks #1 to our Lord and Savior #2 our amazing Mayo Hospital and the docs, surgeons, techs, nurses-care!! AMEN! This lady was so much care and support-- and still is. Even with all she goes thru-- she is right there! Such a godly built heart! 
My dear friend @faithfulpoet !! WOW!! Talk about definition of a heart!! He has one that you would think he has a perfect life rolling for all the uplifting he brings you!! The joy he brings in YOUR hard days-in your strife- or in my brain surgery!! This soul is full of grace and love-- all thru our Lord that sees him thru step by step as well!!! As for we all have tough times.. but he still gets thru it- WITH HIM-- and reaches to others. He is one with a true heart- true talent from THAT heart that leads to AMAZING POETRY!!! I suggest you connect and find ALL OF THIS OUT! He will amaze you!  This is to his new poetry blog:  http://www.joemerrell.com/ 
Finally, I don't know how to say HOW BLESSED I AM that I met, and became precious friends with @jamielynnbeals ! She and I have tweeted for some time now. Ran into a tragic time together, when we still hadn't really met yet-other than waved at a concert from a distance. We lost our precious friend we both, on our own times, visited, had a dear friendship with @jasonmitchener ... She sure helped me grieve thru it all, as for he was the first dear soul I ever lost-and in such a tragic way! This precious friend-- decided to come meet, and visit me while I was up at Mayo, deep wires in my brain!! I FELT SO BLESSED! She came up the late afternoon prior my brain brain resection!! We talked about LIFE for like 4 hours-- then we were interrupted by my dear neurosurgeon Dr. Zimmerman. He turned from happy go lucky Zimmerman- to VERY SERIOUS DOC! And poor Jamie-not used to this at all, looking at her feet as he re-told the AWAKE brain surgery procedure- to make sure I WAS AGO!!  She was astounded when he left the room at what I was prepped for!! But we sure all live different lives- and we all have more "strength" He gives us in certain areas than others- as they do in other areas than we do!! We sure had more to talk about after he left. After I went thru it-- and was in ICU-- I was in a physically moving ability-and mentally on top of the world!! She and I talked and I said to "please, YES, come visit!" Her dear husband Kevin and she-both came..it was amazing! These two have hearts of Jesus-- and share it with all!! They are off to Israel MONDAY! Pray it goes well, and is safe!!! I am blessed with a dear, close- local friend! God will work thru us!
Another amazing place I had awesome prayers one is KelseyLive.com --amazing soul yes, is Kelsey Grammer who talked to me deep about what I was going thru-plus had assistants call me about it all-how can they help me-- so I can help others--included the AMAZING, heartfelt @HoldemTalkRadio !! I felt so blessed. But if you are there-- or look into it- one AWESOME SOUL.. and on FIRE for Jesus- is Gene Richards! One that started a worldwide prayer for me- really listened to me AND CARED! WOW!! Such a heart this soul has-- and Jesus is so thrilled! 
The list here is just THE START.... will be posting just MORE TO COME!!! You all just make me smile-- and kept my spirits up thru HIM and your amazing love-- I truly thank Jesus for everyone!! I am well--and I thank Him, and YOU ALL!
Blessings and LOVE!

Amazing tweets for the new year....



Twitter is an amazing place-- where you can talk to people on line-- about so much you have in common. My BIG common is #Jesus-- our Lord and Savior. More commons build up from there... such as prayer, illness, Epilepsy, children, abuse, surgery, music, oooohhh etc... 
It is a place that you can be yourself-- on line-- and when you meet in person-- in person. It is a way to share all that has gone on in your life- both good and tough-- and share it with others-- letting them know also-- God never gives us more than we can handle. And we all can be amazing support for one another. Awesome encouragers-- friends-- uplifters-- truthful ones who let us know when we step out of bounds. I feel so blessed to know so many-- and have such a close bond with a ton of you-- I try to keep pushing these out-- this is my first one for this NEW YEAR of 2010!!!!!
Thru it all, I have met, in person quite a few tweets-- and thank God for that. I look forward to meeting more in the future. We had become really close friends with @HopHopkins and his wife @hopsgirl and their family friend @SKanderson but they all moved to Oklahoma.... and will be missed sooooo much!!
A really dear soul is @gregmcmurty from Michigan.... a state where I was born.  :) He is one AMAZING soul thru #Jesus who always has kind words and truthful soul. Never a negative-- always positive thru everything!!
Then there is amazing @greg249 -- my dear friend Dennis. He is one amazing soul who cares about everyone. He has such insightful tweets--brilliant website that makes you think- but most of all-- a heart that is truly never ending. 
Then there is dear, young, motivated @blogomomma ... She is one delightful, uplifting-YOUNG soul out there tweeting to all. She always is smiling, and not just on the pic-- with every tweet!! Fills twitterland full of Joy-- and I am so thankful God brought us together as friends!!
"Your life is a song that only you can sing; but it takes wing when you harmonize with God." ~@PattyTownley  Patty is one very dear soul-- that reaches out to all-- uplifting thru her heart-- thru God. She is one that listens well-- and speaks amazing words so true. God blessed me with a connection with her-- as for she always brings me joy!!
My precious dear friend @cupcakes5 will find the good in everyone. She always has amazing, kind words--flowing thru her twitter-- and thru her heart. God works wonders thru her love for all. One amazing soul that if somehow you aren't connected-- you should be!
Then-of course there is my dear friend I am so grateful for... @Chriscarroll50 -- though he may be physically far away--- on another continent.. he is so close by tweets, by SKYPE and facebook- but mostly- by our Lord and Savior #Jesus Christ. One dear soul you need to tweet with often-- to understand!!
I will close this Amazing tweets post with a precious, truthful soul- who is always there for you, making sure all is well thru our Lord--- and that is @Our_Lord ... He has a heart so close to our Lord's-- one who knows how to live in hard times-- and still praise Him--- live in great times-- share time--- grieve with others-- praise with others-- no matter what his times are. Amazing friend.
I love you all so dearly-- I get these out as often as I can-- I have a few blogs-- and posted so many on the one I miss dearly--- my dear friend @jasonmitchener ... he is always in my heart-- just isn't a car drive away--- I guess he is somewhat closer- less gas money-- a prayer away... just hurts. Sending @jasonmitchener my love....


Blessings tweets!!

Always bring you up!!




Twitter has been an amazing source of #1 sharing God's Word #2 praying for others #3 meeting amazing souls #4 sharing life stories-transparency #5 reaching out to others in need of comfort of information that you may know. And then it is always an amazing place to laugh and know Jesus loves our friendships thru Him!!

I always like to post another one of these-- as often as I can-- God knows it will take a lifetime with all the amazing souls on twitter that touch my life. This week I felt the desire to post another-- letting all know that Jesus touches my life in many ways thru many people. And in many ways. I am a dry humor girl, yet always one with a heart-- so I am one who loves all... even the ones who tear me down. :) That is a great verse in Matthew-- to love your enemies!! If we don't... we sure would have a lot of stress we could be rid of-if we'd just let our hearts forgive. That has to be one of the best feelings of love.

Other than that... friendship-- is an amazing love Jesus blessed us with. To love all. And I will say... we are yes, to yoke, to lean on Christian friends... but we are not to shut out people who are not. That was one lecture I got from someone several months ago, for supporting someone on twitter-- for being very encouraging. No words about faith... as for we hadn't talked that deep yet... however this amazing friend, had-- is very very supportive-- not just of me.. but of everyone he connects with-- and with so much joy. It would be me-- full of energy loving people-- but just pretend I don't know Jesus right now. Would you- could you dislike me-- or disconnect? The reason for having friends as followers of Christ-- is to be more like Him... to share His love, His Word-- not lecture-- just share how He has been in your life. Pray they ask more. Pray that seed is planted-- and God helps it grow. But needless to say-- I love all-- whom have the heart like this amazing soul----

All-- if somehow are not connected to @americandream09 -Jeffery Lee Hons-- then I suggest you connect today-- or when you get this message. So you can see how vibrant he is in life and love for people-- in all circumstances-- true uplifter!!! AMAZING SOUL!!! One I would never cross off my list as an amazing friend I feel so blessed to have!! And I thank God for us crossing twitter paths!!

The other amazing soul I feel so utterly blessed to have connected with is @jonnerz John P. Kavanagh ... he may be afar--- but with Networking we are able to talk like we are neighbors. And we are able to share life stories-- so we both know-- we are NEVER alone in any circumstances. He is one amazing soul-- with one true heart for all-- reach out to him-- send him a tweet-- HE WILL RESPOND with such amazing kind words!!! I feel so blessed!!

One lady who is full of love for all-- full of life for her family-- full of smiles in life is @MomBlog ... Miss Tracey Lanter. She is one sweet soul who brings joy to so many lives. I couldn't imagine being her child... I then couldn't imagine a bad day!!! One very amazing soul to connect with--- if somehow not... to bring you joy-ALWAYS!!! :)

Then of course, there is my DEAR DEAR @lynnmosher ... whom the WORLD knows. I always tell her I will be on her front door step--that is just how kind she is--IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES!!! She is one that is very truthful-- but in such kind words. She is one who never lies-- she has too BIG of a heart. She is one that lives everyday for Jesus-- and that is SO TRUE. We all fall short- yes.. but Lynn Mosher does it at least with grace and at His feet. I truly love this lady and am inspired by her.... SO MUCH!!!

Then there is @DocMacaSTAT whom is one amazing soul who not only touches lives on twitter-- but in the ER!!! He listens to my stories I have to humor him about my hospital stays, ER visits, brain surgeries... yet he reaches out with such kindness... the job he does does is one stressful job--- I KNOW FROM BEING THE PATIENT MANY TIMES. And I thank God for souls with hearts like his! Dr. Tony Macasaet touches-heals-fixes souls on the job-- and on twitter-- a great connection!!

Now whether he wants me to post this or not-- Mr. Humble-- @KurtWvS ...Kurt Von Schleicher... has touched my life on twitter thru Jesus-- and on Facebook-- and his amazing Blogs. He is more than on FIRE for Christ-- He is walking so tightly with Him... He is becoming more and more Christ-like each day... one day it will be so much like a mirror image.. as for he is close already!! A must connect (if somehow not) and be moved and inspired thru his love for Jesus!!

Then dear dear--- Mr. El LaGrew .. HE IS ON FIRE FOR CHRIST--- HE HAS A HEART FOR ALL!!! @elagrew will move your heart even if you are having a down day!!! He is one who is full of His Love, His Faith... and reaches out to others-- in such an amazing fashion that would move you-- even if you thought you would never listen to one word about Jesus!! With Him... you would listen to him throughout the day as he tweets. Too kind and generous with words to disconnect!! WOW!! Jesus has molded him in such an amazing fashion... that I can see-- one day, Jesus can do that with me more too!!

Then there is the amazing
@danlopez2012 ... who is truthful about all he has gone thru-and what he is ready to break free from-- thru Christ's help and his motivation!! One amazing, truthful soul.. ready to go out and make everything of himself Jesus has plans for-- and bring others with him... that have ever gone thru troubles.. or that want to know how amazing Jesus is-- when you buck up-- and seek Him-- motivated!! It is like the song "One life to live..." and he knows it.. and is doing it with such a heart and care for all!!! Plus-- a gift-- HE ALWAYS MAKES ME LAUGH!!!!!! AMEN!!! Connect, if somehow you aren't-- with Dan Lopez!!

I love you all so dearly--- and will keep these coming out.... I have a lot going on. I have a couple livestreams starting up -- one for epilepsy, one for Jesus. And will be starting a TokBox too... but I am also getting ready for my last test before my 3rd, and LAST brain surgery for my epilepsy-- so I can come off of like 4 of these meds at least!!!! I am having the MEG test-- it is a 3-6 hour test-- in Birmingham, AL... on the 17th of Nov. So, I am excited-- and love you all for your support!!

Any who wish to SKYPE me-- you can find it on your right hand side to click one--- or just know I am AliveinMe :) Heather Siebens.

Blessings to all.... will keep these coming, along with my others.... please connect!!

In His Love,

Hetty

Amazing souls...




Twitter has been quite the amazing source, yes, of social networking...but not just to yap when bored...it is the most awesome place to connect with so many to pray for, pray for you and with you, share testimonies, struggles, blessings, and life. It is a true connection.

There is nothing better than true contact with family and friends...or awesome worship and fellowship---sharing His Word... but this is on FIRE. And definitely a plus for those who don't drive, can't drive, or just promote their business faith all across the world with buttons!! A few tweets can help change ones heart!!

Then when you are in public and you share this info you have--to connect--with others that need to be brought up, informed on illness, business, family life, faith etc... it is awesome to share your twitter name with all. I am transparent on twitter, blogs, and in person...so I love it when I run into people that hear me talk about Jesus or illnesses such as epilepsy... and I wind up giving my twitter info etc. AWESOME CONTACT TOOL!!

Now for the amazing souls I have met on twitter.... I couldn't even begin. One that has thrown me for a loop the past few weeks is @mcProdigal ... very transparent. The way we should be!! One who always makes me bust laughing, and keep my faith always--such similar life history-- @pbadstibner ... one who is MORE than helping to turn @worldprayr UPSIDE DOWN!!! All for God's glory!! One that has a heart for all-- thru every struggle--every blessing-- every Blog is @jasonthebaldguy (must see his BLOG) One that knows true happiness thru Jesus and touches my soul thru Him @iStones And one that will throw absolute amazement your way---when you reach to him and talk with him---amazing how God works!! @MichaelJStone and dear @jdbegg who has such a heart for Jesus and sure found Him in perfect time! Then dear @cgbrofmi who is ALL ABOUT JESUS--fun, laughter thru all circumstance all go thru--really reaches out!!! And Lord...that is a start....

And my dear friend who reaches out to all to make smile thru everything--makes his day a bright day always @RetiredTeacherD

As for five VERY INSPIRING LADIES to reach to NOW--that have touched my heart beyond belief--- @CGPLADY  @LadyExec @Abeeliever @PartnerinSanity and dear @spreadingjoy ....

Then there is the always dear soul...my husband Christian you can find and love dearly too at @flyingchristian and @WorldVentures4U loves Jesus--and his family sooo much....sure loves all!!


These are just the few for the day.... and so much more to come.. haven't hopped on this one in a while... but I can't wait to do so again... you all touch my heart whether here---or thru twitter!! God has reasons for everything!!

In His Love,

Hetty Siebens @AliveinMe @EpilepsyCures


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go see their blogs... I would post them all here--but most have more than one like I do.... so start, if you aren't by connecting with them... then finding out which blog to go to!! You all amaze me....can't wait to do another...have three blog sites going... less brain.... :)

Testimonies amaze me!!






I have come across so many amazing people. And amazing-I mean honest, been thru hard times-and are striving for Jesus. Not famous. Not rich. Just have a heart-yearn for Christ-and admit their dependence on HIM.

I am one who is so open-so transparent with all I have gone thru-with HOW I found HIM-and how HE works in my life. Normally with addictions, or having been beaten, or illnesses etc-many keep it in, whether ashamed or scared others will judge. Some will...but you know what is right thru Him. Using all He has brought you thru will effect more for good than affect them in any bad way. Might be a way to awaken some, to really open your story-be a way for some to feel gracious to God, that what they have going on may not be as bad as it seems...however your transparency-your testimony helps-it is such a blessing to many. Some you will know-some you won't...but keep pressing forward for the Goal=Christ. He has so much in store for you!


I have come across so many amazing people...so many awesome testimonies. That just grab me...a reminder of how GREAT GOD IS FOR US ALL!! I am one who asks people if they have one-as for they just blow me away each time!! He works wonders. Think about when you are chatting with your friends on Twitter-just to ask, if they have one...and if you can read it. Just boggles your mind at how AWESOME GOD IS...for us all.


Always a great place to find testimonies is on @worldprayr 's blog : http://world-prayer.blogspot.com/


Another one off the top of my head is @ericamity 's http://truthsaves.org/whatever/category/christian-testimonies/


A great one is @Pastor_T 's http://whatsthislifefor.org/


An amazing soul thru Christ @tonybernard2 http://www.asbministries.com/


And my dear friend....who means SOOOOO much to me-HAPPY BIRTHDAY
TODAY Pat! @pbadstibner 's blog: http://www.gracethroughthedesert.com/


These are just a few places-there are more!!! And always the ability just to ask-and you'd be astounded who has one-and how they fell to their knees for Christ-BIG AMEN!


Took me forever-but totally worth every moment-every ounce of pain-every hospital stay-every dumb thing I did. I choose Christ! http://hiswill4me.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-can-i-break-this-down.html



Love you all~more off-Christ loves you SOOOO much!!



In His Love,


Hetty

Amazing Faith and Prayer~




We all have our up and down days. This past week was so tough for me-was a basket of tears-which is very much unlike me. But starting with @pbadstibner he started a rally of prayer-and lifting me up. And so many awesome friends came to my rescue thru Christ. That is what life is all about-to love one another so much-to run to their aide-and lift their spirits-therefore they can lift yours and others again SOON.
Have met so many amazing people on twitter-in person-that my heart just reaches out for more- one amazing soul is @gailelaine I was so blessed she drove ALL THE WAY DOWN to see me. Jesus has her heart on fire!! Awesome!
There are so many out there that have tough situations....just know with what I have gone thru-I wouldn't be sitting here typing without Jesus in my life-without asking Him to be my everything. And when I did-so much began to change for the better. Without Him in your life-so much darkness is exposed-and a way of life-really no one wants to live-it just becomes habit. Feels like there is no way out. Know this...there is. And that is accepting Jesus Christ into you heart, your life-as your Lord and Savior. He has amazing plans to unfold...just needs you to grasp Him in trust to begin unfolding them!
I sit and watch close friends go thru divorces that really don't have biblical reason for it. Watch family struggle with lies and deceipt-but trying to change ways of life-for the better. Watch friends with family that know Christ and marriage is still failing....where is the Bible? Where is the worship? Where is the forgiveness and love...where is the correct focus-not to do wrong? Free will is all over the place....but we have to accept Jesus...and stick with Him close-to get thru all these hard times. And sure need to know that praying with others is NEVER A BOTHER!! It is a gift-a blessing. And Christ loves it when you share amongst other believers what is weighing on your heart-and to pray...so He hears you ALL...and can bless all of you for such amazing love thru Him. Praying should never be a bother...it should be felt like a gift-of trust someone gives you. Which is why I love @worldprayr . My past couple years, I have been one learning to pray for others instead of the focus on me. And that is the best feeling in the world. If you aren't connected...you should. Would love to pray for you!
Jesus hears us before we say a word...He just loves the trust and love we give Him...when we speak out loud-and also with others...sharing our faith. Shows the true love and trust we have in HIM!
As I pray my 3rd brain surgery date comes soon...daughters seizures dissipate....and husbands arm heals...how can I pray for you?? (those are just a few of my prayers!) :)
God bless you all...have faith...know that praying does more than have Him hear...has Him answering!!

Philipians 4: 6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
