Just a little update. Eden's Pathway Lifestyle Center is now at it's new location in Reliance Tennessee. It has been a big job trying to get the ministry settled and up and runing like normal. This is why I have been away from posting anything. I do hope that the things I have been posting on God's Amazing Grace and Brittany's Kitchen Corner, have been a blessing. I hope that you all have had a wonderful holiday season and it has been full of many blessings, and I don't mean material blessing's, I mean the spritual blessings that come each and everyday from God. If you take the time to look you will see them all around. God watches each and everyone of us and He loves us so much. Let's love Him back by keeping His commandments.
May God bless you throughout this new year that is ahead of us.

My Sugar passed away this morning 7/28/09 at 5:50 AM. I will greatly miss her! She ment so much to me! There could never be a nother kitty like her. She never once was mean, but always loving! A special pice of me is gone.
The bright, sunny color of yellow roses evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. The warm feelings associated with the yellow rose are often akin to those shared with a true friend. As such, the yellow rose is an ideal symbol for joy and Friendship.
That is what my Sugar was, "A Dear and True Friend" she never would have failed me and she brought so much Joy into my life.

I just want to ask all of you if you don't mind, to keep my cat in your prayers. I have had her since this past December and she means so much to me. I rescued her from the pound and my family and I have given her a good home.
The reason why I'm asking for prayers is because this morning when I went to say good morning I could not find her. A little later my Mom found her next to the house just laying there lifeless. We did not know what was wrong. We made sure that she had some water and tried to get her to eat, but she was not interested. We noticed that her eyes were inflamed and glassy and we really started to get concerned. So my Mom called the Animal Clinic and they told us to bring her in right away. When we got to the Clinic the Vet knew immediately what was wrong. She had to take some blood work and send it off to the hospital, but she was positive that what she had was "Bobcat Fever" This is when the cat has picked up a tick that was on a bobcat has picked up a parasite that is in the blood where is attacks the white blood cells. There is no cure for it yet. Although there have been some cats that have survived it.
I have a link here if you would like to take a look at it. http://cats.suite101.com/article.cfm/bobcat_fever_afflicting_domestic_c . It tells the cause of the disease, and the symptoms. If you have a cat I HIGHLY rec amend that you take a look at it, even if you don't have a cat and you know someone that dose than PLEASE share this with them.
When the blood work came back positive (meaning she did have this disease) we asked the Vet what was our options. She said that there was not a cure for that the University was doing some research on it and we could take her up there, but it would cost anywhere from $1,200,00 or more. And we told her that there was no way we had that kind of money. Then we told her that we taught health and that we help people eliminate parasites out of the body and the blood stream. We asked her if she thought that it would do any good for us to try some of the formulas we use on her, and she said to go for it. She also gave us some of the blood thinner shoots to give to her every 8 hours and a IV to run in her every 5 hours.
We have been giving her all this treatment since 5:00 this afternoon. And have been praying constantly for the Lords will to be done and for us to be able to deal with whatever the out come may be. But I know that with a lot of prayer and faith miracles can happen. Already we know that the Lord is answering our prayers, because the tick that was causing my Mom found and it was no longer injected in her. So that tells us that the blood and parasite formulas are working after only 4 treatments. PRAISE GOD!
We still don't know if she will make it. But we are just asking that God's will be done. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your prayers! May God bless you in many ways.

Well here is some pictures of the first real snow we have gotten this year. Snow is so pretty. I love to look at it and take pictures of it, but I don't like to be in it that much. Unless I'm having fun with family and friends.
It is now a snow angel.
Frosted buds on our Dogwood tree.

Hope your winter has been one full of hope, joy, and love. God bless you through the new year!

"A friend is one that knows when you are sad and when you are happy.
A Friend knows the meaning of tears and of smiles.
A friend is one that knows who you are and understand how you feel.
A friend is one who knows what you like to do and does it with you.
A friend is one that can put your arms around as you tell them what makes you happy
and what makes you sad and they understand.
But the best friend you could ever have and who knows how you feel is Jesus Christ.
He is the best of friends.
Without Jesus, friends can't be friends.
When friends have Him in their heart, they are better friends."

There is a National Park about an hour and an half away from us that was dedicated to Joyce Kilmer. The park is know for the huge trees that are there. It is one of my favorite places to go on a Sabbath afternoon hike.
This is the pome her wrote called "Trees"
And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we
may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 1 John
Jesus came into the world to save sinners, not in their sins but from
their sins, and to sanctify them through the truth; and in order that He may
become a perfect Saviour to us, we must enter into union with Him by a
personal act of faith. Christ has chosen us, we have chosen Him, and by this
choice we become united to Him and are to live from henceforth, not unto
ourselves, but unto Him who has died for us. But this union can only be
preserved by constant watchfulness, lest we fall into temptation and make a
different choice, for we are free always to take another master if we so
desire. Union with Christ means an unfailing preference for Him in every act
and thought. . . .
We are to consider ourselves as constituting the family of Christ, and
we are to follow Him as dear children. Adopted into the household of God,
shall we not honor our Father and our kindred? . . .
We must establish an unyielding enmity between our souls and our foe,
but we must open our hearts to the power and influence of the Holy Spirit.
We want Satan's darkness to be shut out and the light of Heaven to flow in.
We want to become so sensitive to holy influences that the lightest whisper
of Jesus will move our souls. . . . Then we shall delight to do the will of
God, and Christ can own us before the Father and before the holy angels as
those who abide in Him. . . .
But we shall not boast of our holiness. As we have clearer views of
Christ's spotless and infinite purity we shall feel as did Daniel when he
beheld the glory of the Lord and said, "My comeliness was turned in me into
corruption" (Dan. 10:8). We cannot say, "I am sinless" till this vile body
is changed and fashioned like unto His glorious body. But if we constantly
seek to follow Jesus, the blessed hope is ours of standing before the throne
of God without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, complete in Christ,
robed in His righteousness and perfection.
