How Good He Is

Have you ever had a healing miracle?
Has God ever touched you,  in such a way you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that He cares...
about you?
I have had such an experience.
I am not talking about the many times when some thing extraordinary has happened to me, nor times when I would come across the right amount of money at the right time, or even all those strange eagle sightings that are way beyond the ordinary, No I am not even talking about all the crazy way's God found for me to receive Grace in my life.
I am talking about when God touches you and, you receive a  physical healing miracle. 
I have heard of others confessing that they have had such experience's, but I never really believed they received a healing from a higher power..
I thought they must be exaggerating or mistaken or bound up in some kind of euphoria...well,  I sure believe now! I understand what it is to have a physical healing miracle,  the kind when your are healed on the spot! AND I know in my heart it real, and this is no coincidence.

I have been very sick lately, for the past 7 days with strep throat...Never under estimate strep throat!  I thought I could fight it off on my own, like I have fought many other things in my life, you know the tough girl"I don't need anyone", asking God to help me, never occurred to me. The times in the past I have ask for healing, it didn't happen so I stopped asking. My big ego had been under the impression that I didn't need God, so never bothered to chat with him any more...truthfully I was and have been very angry with Him, and was of the mind he was angry with me too.
  So here I am with this very painful virus, fever, body aches, my throat was so sore that I couldn't even swallow my own saliva. On the second day,  the pain went into my right side and I started vomiting and got dehydrated. I hadn't eaten nor drank any thing in almost 48 hours. Still, the words "help me Lord" would not pass my lips, my husband had his own issues with the creator and did not bend a knee in prayer for me either....what a couple of stubborn old farts we are!
 The pain in my side was so bad, violently vomiting, B. said "its enough! you need to go to the hospital", he must have said it at least 5 times, I ignored his beseeching, but this time I knew he was right I have to go to the hospital. My loving husband helped me dress, and drove me to the hospital, he got me to the emergency room. The nurses took me in and hooked me up to an IV machine that was running fast, this would hydrated me quickly. I was given Maxeran for nausea, and a pain killer through the IV drip. The doctor told me that I had a strep infection in my throat, if left untreated it could travel though out the body.  This infection went to my liver, that resulted in terrible pain in my right painful the doctor could barely examine me. Blood test's did confirmed a liver infection as well as strep throat, and antibiotic was prescribed. The pain killers prescribed helped allot. I was on my way to feeling better. After a couple of hours I was doing much better. I could hardly believe that a few hours ago I was so sick I could barley walk into this place.

Shortly there after,  we found our selves walking out of the hospital going home. For the next two days I was starting to feel much better, and planed to go to work the next day. That night I started to feel nauseous again, about 8:30 that night a head ache had hit me so hard, the pain was like nothing I have never had before. I couldn't move, couldn't talk, my neck was radiating so much pain I feared meningitis, B. had been rubbing my head for hours, I had taken 3 different pain killers to no avail.  B. placed a cold wrap around my head...but nothing took the pain away. This pain had lasted 8 long hours, non stop.  I grab my own head hard,to try an squeeze the pain out,  I was in agony, my stomach was turning, I was going vomit... I think I will have to go back to the hospital. At 3:30 AM in my tears, I broke through my pride and asked B. if he would pray for me, there was hesitation on his part, but he did as I bid, and  prayed for my healing, I verbally agreed for healing in Jesus name. 

As B. prayed I could hardly believe what was happening... the pain was going away...I felt it completely go from my brain, by the time he said amen...Oh my God! The pain was completely gone! I started to cry, to praise the Lord... with my hand's raised high I gave heart felt thanks.B.was speechless, all he could say was "really, Its really gone?" Tears of thanks, of joy, knowing God heard our prayer and answered! God did this miracle for me, He relieved me of the pain in my head, the hospital trip was not necessary, the great healer made contact!...That blows the socks off me feet.
I had to write this down so I should never for get what he has done.
I only wish, I could type and tell this story in such a way that the amazing miracle could be felt by the reader.

Reading...Mary Queen of Scots

Antonia Fraser is a wonderful historical writer, I've read many of her books and am now enjoying Mary Queen of Scots.
 Mary Stuart has lead a fascinating life.
She was born to Royal parent's of Scotland. Mary was only 6 month's old when she became Queen of Scotland, and only 5 years old she left home for France.
Young Mary was to
marry at the appointed time to a little French Prince,  Francis Dauphin of France. 
He was about 4 years younger than she.

It was custom in that day, for this young Princess to make the journey from Scotland to France, so she could live amongst the French Royals andbe reared as such, seeing as she was to be France's Queen one day.

 Apr 1558 she married Francois, then dauphin, the son of the French King. In Jul 1559 Francois succeeded his father and Mary became Queen of France as well as of Scotland.

This marriage didn't last long for the young King died leaving Mary a child widow.

She stayed in France for a while after her husbands death, then Marys mother died and her brother James persuaded her to return to Scotland home of her birth.
She landed back in Scotland in Aug.19 1561. Mary was 18 years old. 

Back in that day, it was impertinent that a queen have a husband,  to pass on the royal name to an heir...preferably a male heir. Mary had many proposals of marriage but settled on her cousin the handsome Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley 

Who turned out to be a jerk! He only wanted the title of "King" with reining power, and neglected his wife. He died in the end, it seems to be sinister...murder, maybe???
Darnley and Mary had a son together, who became King of Scotland and England...

                                                                     James V1 and 1

James was born on 19 June 1566/March 1625

Shortly after the birth of Mary's son, There was a large explosion at Darnleys home. He had escaped the explosion that destroyed the house but, was found dead with his page a short distance from the house. It was rumored, (and it seems quite likely), that he was killed by James Hepburn, the Earl of Bothwell (Mary's future and third husband). For Darnley had died by strangulation, not the blast.

                                                   A drawing of the murder scene.

                                       Earl of Bothwell became Queen Mary's third husband...
No one knows for sure if Mary had any thing to do with the Darnley murder but,  Bothwell was fingered as the murderer and, Mary an accomplice. Too bad she didn't think for her self...I am sure she would have realized, to go ahead and marry Bothwell would not be favourable for her. Unfortunately the queen of Scots listened to her advisers and married the Earl Bothwell...Later, these same advisers turned on her saying they didn't want her to marry the Earl Bothwell...(ass-holes!)
The Famous Casket letters

Letters, that were said to be written by Mary found in the above silver case. Controversial to weather there authenticity points to Mary in a bad and murderous light...In any case these letters were used to some how incriminate her in the murder of Darnley her second husband. Poor Mary's end was very bad...she had to flee Scotland for she had now acquired so many enemies she saut refuge in England asking the queen of England Elizabeth 1 for help and protection, Elizabeth gave a promise of help and had poor Mary confined, at first it seemed it was for her well being and safety, but Mary's confinement turn into 18 years a prisoner in England and Mary never got the help nor asylum she was promised. The Scottish Queen was charged with treason against Queen Elizabeth1 and
she was beheaded. the queen of England's order.

The axeman ask for her forgiveness befor he struck...
she gave it.
Sadly it took two blows of the axe to put Mary out of her misery,
 the first missed her neck and cut the back of her head. 

This book was full of interesting facts about this beauty of a Queen, and the time of this past era, the 1500's. It also leaves me angry, angry at our inhuman past..towards all man kind, not just queen Mary. She believed in her heart she was put asunder because she would not release her religious beliefs as a Catholic...she was right to believe this, as many were put to death for their faith.
Don't feel too bad for the Catholics though,....for they too have had their hand's bloody with innocent's of  the Protestant faith...Example:
Queen Mary of Tudor, Henry V111's sister...
When she was queen, she had many protestants murdered for their faith.
Thine Queen was called "Bloody Mary" because of all the people that were burned at the stake, or ripped apart, or disembowelled, or some other gruesome act.
 How self centred religions have played a part, and still do to this day, play a sickening role
 in the lives and death of people.
(ever hear of ex-communication? or Dis-fellowshipping? Cruel!)
Queen Mary of England
"Bloody Mary"
                                                                            any how....
When Mary Queen of Scots was charged with treason... It reads, from Antonia's book, as though she was set up by the English governing body including Queen Elizabeth
(heartless woman, how could she not know,I shouldn't take so much to heart..."NOTE In defence of Elizabeth I because she really is portrayed in such bad light for signing Mary Queen of Scots death warrant, this was not a decision Elizabeth I comes to easily".  thank you Kimberly for the extra very professional information) and some of the Scots too should be held accountable for her wrong confinement and beheading.
A queen should not have been kept a prisoner when seeking help from another queen!!! She had been given a promise of refuge by her cousin and fellow queen Elizabeth, later Elizabeth denied that she ever gave this promise. Through out queen Mary's 18 years of confinement, she kept reminding Elizabeth of her promise in her letters to the English queen.
Mary did no wrong as to be held for 18 years a prisoner of England... she only wanted to show Elizabeth that she was not after her throne, that's why she remained a good prisoner and did not run, nor try to assassinate Elizabeth.
                                                   Queen Marys rosary and prayer book...
                                                         Mary remained true to her faith.
 After so so many years under lock and key and much of this time under very poor holdings approximately 9 buildings...Due to lack of exercise she became over weight and rheumatic. She caved conversation for she seldom had it, and being an intelligent woman, it must have been almost pain full not to communicate in a thought provoking manner...
(don't question this unless you your self have been through it!) Mary Stuart took conversation when and were she could, with whom ever she could.
She must have gone somewhat mad, or even confused... always thinking that her release
"was any day now"  and never came.
Poor Mary Stuart just wanting out of her confinement as promised, she never wanted any ones throne as she was so often accused of.
 Even her loyal assistance loved her one day and the next they are betraying her, she never knew who to trust, but Mary would forgive many of them, realizing that some were tortured into there betrayal, but others betrayed for self gain...
Mary in her emotional pain lacking freedom and her child, and her kingdom as a God ordained Queen, could have said anything that these English creeps (speaking of this era thank you) would have used against her in order to charge her with treason...
My personal reaction... As one can tell my heart goes out to poor Mary, I am proud she held to her beliefs,even though I think Catholicism is a crock of sh*!
 as I do with most religions.
( I am open to all but believe none dis-fellowshiped as I am.
 I actually envy folks that are like Mary and my parents)
Any way...I don't understand why France who loved Miss Mary Stuart did not come to her rescue? Frances heart broke upon hearing her death. Were they not strong enough to combat England? What of Spain, they wanted to make a Catholic connection with Mary, why didn't the King of Spain step in and rescue her and marry her like he wanted?
Not to mention her own people the Scots...were where you guys???
At any rate her son became King of both Scotland and England, unfortunately Mary saw her son for the last time when he was only 5 years old, as he was taken away from her and he was
kept away from his mother.
Poor, poor Queen Mary of Scotland....I cried for this woman when I read her story....

This Too, is my Story

 After all these years, I still feel a displacement of self, when it comes to who I am in Christ.
I too carry the pain of the loss of my family due to the choices I've made.
I left my childhood religion in 1994 and payed a high price.
I still pay the price of loss of mother and father and siblings...
I still carry my "cross"...
The Documentary Film
What happens when someone leaves behind family, friends, their acquired interpretations of "God"—the only world they have ever known? For many, it means an emotionally agonizing and dramatic transition into a once forbidden world.

Losing My Religion will be a soul-searching, interview-style film examining the realities, experiences, and exoduses of former members of the Jehovah's Witnesses and other high-control groups.

Lost & Found

Lost & Found is an international charity that will provide life-transition services to those adversely affected by high-control religious groups. Lost & Found will offer empathetic and practical assistance with a goal toward self-empowerment. In the near future, we will provide confidential counseling and job placement to those associated and formerly associated with Jehovah's Witnesses.
