Suffer no more!



I just recieved news today that a really close friend of mine is no longer having to fight her battle against Cystic Fibrosis. I have worried about her for so many years......but now the Lord has her in his care. She was a big part of my life esspecially my childhood at CF camp! She was amazing in so many ways....she beat all the odds-she was a fighter!!. She recognized the blessings that her life gave her. She was a spitfire and an inspiration. She will be missed....she was one of my CF sisters & will always be in my heart-one day we will meet again! I am not sure how I will handle this loss..... One thing that reasures me is that she is no longer suffering and will do great things in Heaven!

Jamie,
It never ceases to amaze me to come on here and see your uplifting words, even in a time of such loss for you. Once again, I sit at my desk with tears in my eyes. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You are so correct,in that she has great things to do in heaven. I know this, as I beleive this to be the same with my girls. They are so busy and so happy, it is just us that are left to deal with such huge losses that makes it hard. Hang in there girl and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
