Message:  I have not posted in a while, because of my health. I can not articulate the loving and caring community I have witnessed among our 'Mickey Newbury Porch Rocking Friends.'

I enjoyed the experience of laughing, caring, sharing, and hearing such wonderful talent at the Gathering in June immensely.     

Craig posted, "Many times we aren't used to being recipients, but givers." His statement is so true...at least for me; and, giving is easy and natural for me, while asking and receiving is hard.

To make a long health history short ~ I have now been diagnosed with what has caused many health problems for me for years - some serious and some just uncomfortable or irritating.

Upon my latest painful and debilitating "flare" my Rheumatologist diagnosed me with having systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE)and fibromyalgia. She began aggressive medication two weeks ago and my pain is now bearable and I can get around the house for brief periods of time.

The good news is that this lupus disease can go into remission with treatment for long or short periods of time before another "flare" of the disease.

I humbly ask for your 'PORCH PRAYERS' because I KNOW that I serve a God who heals. And for some reason, perhaps I need to be a receiver at this time in my life.
