This is my first time blogging and my friend, DB, taught me how to do this.  So for what it is worth, here are my thoughts.  She says someone might be interested to hear them.

Dear Someone,  I'm finding that it is hard to continue on in our everyday lives when it seems that everything hurts, physically or emotionally or both.  God calls us to hang on in our suffering because it produces perseverance which ultimately produces hope.  This is a strange way to receive hope, but God does things opposite of how you or I would think.  So, hang in there, stay the course.  Take care of your self, do something nice for yourself if you need to, but keep on keeping on, because Jesus did the same for you, and got you eternal relationship with the Most High God.

Romans 5:3-8  3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.  5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.  6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  2. Elizabeth "lizabeth" swayne is an evil snake in the grass who portrays herself as a woman of God. However, when your family member dies, and despite them having a written will, she will take any and all items that she feels she is entitled to. She will drain your dead family members safe and bank account, withold your dead family members possessions from their family and refuse to give them back. She will tell you until she's blue in the face that what she does for people is out of the kindness of her heart and then she will turn around and steal everything that your family member owned right out of their house after they die because she "wasn't compensated" for her time caring for your family member. But remember, it was out of pure kindness in her heart that she did it in the first place. We have a dead family member, a Vietnam War veteran who battled cancer for years at that that we now have NO possessions of because she won't give them to us! Excerise EXTREME CAUTION when dealing with this association or "Merciful Ministries", unless you just don't care about ever getting your family members stuff back after they die.
