Happy Birthday Yesterday, Ale'! Update on Debbie

Christmas Glitter Graphics
My grand daughter in law Ale's Birthday was yesterday and I missed it!! I called her tonight to wish her a very Happy Birthday and she giggled and said Grandma my Birthday was yesterday the 2nd!! I told her how sorry I was that I always think her birthday is the 3rd!! I have it written down in my book that it is the 3rd for I really do think that is when it is for sure! Well, I guess now I will remember it is not the 3rd!
So a very Happy Birthday to you my dear Grand daughter who is a real sweet heart!! Also the Mother of my great grand son Mathias who is just adorable and so cute!! Well, how is that for being prejudice!!
My dear friend Glo over at Young at Heart is sick and in bed with flu like stuff so remember her in your prayers!!
Keep on praying for another dear friend Denise at Shortybearsplace She has a lot of serious health issues and needs a touch from God. All of her friends are holding her up in prayer!
I have another friend who is under 24/7 nursing care. I had a newsletter from her husband Bob Mason Saturday and Debbie is very ill with cancer. She is needing prayer and a touch from God, too.
Our family met the Masons down in Dallas at Church camp many years ago when they were the head of "Living Praise" a singing group at Christ for the Nations. Nancy met them and they were so nice to her!! They now have a Missions Organization and help start churches and help with orphans homes. Thank you all for praying!

Kelly just had a message on her cell phone from a friend who knows Debbie too and Debbie went home to be with Jesus last night. I would really appreciate prayer for Nancy because this will be so hard for her. She isn't able to process this and will get mad about something that has noting to do with Debbie death. I have told my family when the time comes for me to go home and be with Jesus to try and understand if she is all mad about everything . It is her way of coping but if you don't know this you get upset your self because of her behavior. Thanks for praying.

I'm sure your granddaughter and your great-grandson are both beautiful. I hope she had a great birthday.

I will keep all those you mention in my prayers and lift them all up to God, the Great Physician. Thank you for mentioning those in need.


Mary said...

PS. Please remember Alicia in your prayers. She lost her baby at 6 months yesterday. The baby boy was born, but didn't survive, as his lungs weren't developed fully. They tried their best to save him, but God needed him in heaven.

Denise said...

I will be praying for Glo, and precious Debbie. I appreciate your prayers for me, I love you.

Melli said...

Ohhhhh dear Grams! I guess you have ammended your note to yourself regarding Ale's birth DATE... right? LOL!

I am lifting Glo, Debbie, Denise ... and Alicia up in prayer this morning. I feel so bad for Alicia... how sad.

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh Carolyn, I've done that too. But hey---you did better than I belated birthday wishes are usually WEEKS from the actual date. :::shrug::: Oh well, it truly IS the thought that counts.

Happy day to you.

Good Morning Grams,
"HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY" to Ale. I hope she had a wonderul birthday. I will lift those you mentioned up in prayer. Only the "GREAT PHYSICIAN" can take of them. It is another cold morning here. It is up to 35 degrees right now. It is looking a little cloudy out as well. The sun was shinging when I took the girls to school about an hour ago. But there were some clouds moving in. Well, take care my friend and have a great Tuesday. May God Bless You and Yours.

What an awful time to have a death in the family!! Anytime is bad but now is the WORST time I think. I am so sorry for this!!

Hope you have a grand day.


Debbie said...

I will lift your prayer needs. Please continue to pray for my hubby. We are waiting to hear from the surgeon regarding his surgery. He had a very tough weekend. Pain is almost intolerable.

Blessings to you.

Mary said...


My sincere sympathy in the passing of your friend. She is in Jesus' arms and no longer suffering. She is completely healed!

Tell Nancy that Debbie is home with Jesus. I know how hard it is to cope, as Brandon used to do this in the past. He is much better now, but would meltdown over something trivial. When we would finally get to the root of the problem, it was something totally different.

Take care. I will keep Nancy in my prayers.


Melanie said...

Well, Happy Birthday to your granddaughter.

I will pray for all of those you mentioned.

T*mmy said...

Happy Birthday to your granddaughter and prayers for everyone you mentiond. So sorry on the loss of your friend.

Good Afternoon Grams,
I just read the update and I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. She is no longer suffering. She is with Jesus now and celebrating and doing things she hasn't been able to do in a while. I pray that Nancy will be able to take this. "DEAR GOD, I COME TO YOUR RIGHT NOW ASKING FOR COMFORTING FOR GRAMS FRIEND'S FAMILY. BE WITH THEM IN THIS TIME OF SORROW. LET THEM BE ABLE TO FEEL YOUR PRESENCE AND GIVE THEM THE STRENGTH DURING THIS TIME. BE WITH NANCY ALSO DEAR GOD. I ASK A SPECIAL TOUCH FOR NANCY DURING THIS DEAR GOD. LET HER BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED. ALL THESE THINGS WE ASK IN YOUR PRECIOUS NAME, AMEN". I hope that will help Grams. This is a bad time of year to lose a loved one or friend. It seems like more people pass away close to a holiday. Your friend will not be at her earthly home for Christmas, but she will be in her Heavenly Home for Christmas. I hope that didn't sound awful. Well, take care my friend and have a great Tuesday as best you can, and May God Bless You.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Denise said...

I am so very sorry for the loss of your dear friend Debbie. Dear Lord, please comfort nancy at this time. Help her to understand that Debbie is now home with you, and no longer suffers.

PEA said...

Dearest Carolyn, of course my prayers have been added to that of the others for your friends...and how very sad about Debbie but at least she is now pain free and at peace.

Happy Birthday to your grand daughter...isn't it funny how we sometimes always get mixed up with a date?! At least she didn't seem upset with you:-)

Take good care my friend! xoxo

Hi Carolyn, I was constantly confused about my SIL birthday. Was it the 21st or 22nd? I will certainly keep you and your friends in my prayers.

I have tried to put the "lamp" award on my sidebar to go with the Christmas Story and can't get it sized right. It keeps showing up short and fat. I'm not good with all this resizing stuff. If I get it to work, I'll let you know.
