Kidnapped by Aliens!


Dear Diary

“I think, last week, I was kidnapped by aliens. ”

OK, my friends, that’s certainly what I would write in my diary to explain my unusual experience from Friday to Monday.

I had again a serious health problem on the night of Friday. My husband played “again” the ambulance to take me to the emergency at Victoria General Hospital. The diagnosis was: a surgery!

 

 

You should know that among my history of visited hospitals (Belgium, Africa, Edmonton) this was such a special experience that I thought I was in an alien hospital. Judge for yourself:

  • I was immediately admitted as soon as they understood my problem (in previous experience: I will still be waiting for 4-5 hours in pain …)
  • Nurses took turn to make sure I did not need anything (in previous experience: only one will showed up and disappeared for at least 2 hours …)
  • The doctor doing the surgery visited me 3 times to explain either the surgery process or to check on me, (previous experience: I will see the doctor only once, often with no clear explanation or nothing at all and you leave the hospital without ever remembering his face…)
  • There were more serious cases than me, but we had all their attention (previous experience: if you’re not a priority, you’re left behind in pain …)
  • Medical staff calls you “darling, sweaty, honey, my dear, beauty …”, very attentive and full of humanity. Do you think this is an exaggeration? (Let me tell you that elsewhere, my color was often an obstacle to treat me well …)

I spent 4 days in Victoria General Hospital (VGH) with the feeling of being in a 7-star hotel or with aliens or in heaven … No, I haven’t been kidnapped by Aliens, I was on the earth with real dedicated, conscientious, special Humans… and I am very grateful to God for the medical staff of VGH, YOU ROCKED!!

By the way, today I feel much better, thanks God! 🙂

Stand in Faith!!!


Even when you can’t see your way
Stand in faith
Even when you feel like you can’t face another day
Stand in faith
Even when the tears want to flow from your eyes
Stand in faith
Knowing that our God will always provide
Stand in faith
Even when you feel that all hope is gone
Stand in faith
Knowing that He is always there for you to lean on
Stand in faith
Even when you feel like giving up
Stand in faith
Because He is there … saying, “Just look up”
Stand in faith
Even in those times you feel so all alone
Stand in faith
Hold on and be strong, for He is still on the throne
Stand in faith
Even when it’s hard to believe
Stand in Faith
Knowing that He can change your situation, suddenly
Stand in faith
Even in those times you feel it’s hard to pray
Stand in faith
And believe that He has already made the way
Faith … is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
So stand in faith
Because you already have the victory!

Digital or Mechanical ?


Since March, I decided  to go on a diet to get rid of 5 kilo. You know, spring cleaning!  On this side of the continent (Canada), it doesn’t look like spring yet, but it  is coming! And when Spring will show up its sunny face, colorful colors and mild temperatures, then Summer will certainly follow with its warmth and good humour …

 But, in the mean time,  my problem is that I have doubts about the accuracy of the scale  in our bathroom. It does not seem to cooperate with me to meet my goal. Some days, it likes to add kilogrammes or pounds.

pèsepersonne

So, I really miss  the  mechanical scale, the one with the needle, I could manipulate, change the needle’s position to get a few pounds less 😉 weigh-person mechanical  Now, I guess you guys would say: “My dear Debora, if you are  XL or XXL and beyond, changing your  scale numbers,  will not effect the image you’ll get from your mirror and  that little spring dress will  remain stuck at your shoulders 😮  Either, you accept yourself as God sees you or just respect your diet! ” True! !

Isn’t that what we often do? Manipulate, use, change in our favor the moral law given to the protection of our society, our family, our world …? Then, we call it “freedom”, “empowerment”, “tolerance”, “evolution “,” innovation “and so on. But very often, all that is just sin and the bondage of sin. (Romans 6:16-17, 2 Peter 2:9)

For God, whose scales are always calibrated, too many pounds is too many pounds, what is good is good, what is bad is bad. He is an absolute God (Malachi 3:6)  You can’t compromise with His laws, change  or manipulate them according to your moods and your own pleasure with these kind of arguments: “God is love, He is a forgiving God, God understands my situation … “(which is true, but used wrongly)

Finally, I will choose to keep my digital scale and abide by the rules, the terms of my diet to lose those pounds and kilo and welcome the summer in good spirits and good health!

What about you? Will you choose to keep, observe, obey the laws and requirements of the Absolute God for the salvation of your soul, your society, your family …?

Take Care !

Why???


 Why  So  Much  Suffering . . .

Why must children suffer, for the wrong we do?

Why must children pay the price for the ugly hate we spew?

Why must children have to cope with hunger and with war?

Why must children feel the wrath at Mother Nature’s core?

Why can’t children just be free and learn the way of love?

Why can’t children have no cares and love their God above?

Why should children have to worry about their future’s air?

Why must they endure these things because we were aware?!

Why is the question we must ask to truly make things right.

Why is the question we must answer so we can sleep at night.

Why can’t we now take the stand and help our children win?

THIS is why I take this stand and hope you all join in!
