God Lifted Me

Being lucky is what I feel.   I  accepted GOD into my life by being baptized again not long ago.  I was feeling lost, and nothing seem to be going right.  Actually, I’ve felt lost most of my life.  But, I decided no more.  Even though Arthritis and Neuropathy has taken over my live.  I’m unbalanced, can’t walk without stumbling, and in extreme pain all the time. My memory and vertigo is intolerable. Then I said, “I’m not going to sit here and feel sorry for myself anymore.”  The doctors didn’t seem to care. They tell me, “I don’t know.”  Or, “It’s not in my job description.”  I asked God for help, and he answered by giving me strength.I’m trying to walk more, by not using my cane.  I stretch and exercise more. I have delved into learning how to paint.  Luck has it, I got accepted into a art show, asked to photograph a fashion show, and I feel stronger.

I’ve been so lucky and happy. My life has gotten off to a great start for the new year.  Photography has put some extract change in my pocket.  I don’t know what happen but sales is good.  I’ve been praying for some success. I haven’t done much photography, but I need to get back out there. I found from the sales what people enjoy.  It’s mostly photos of my home town.  It’s a big tourist town as well, so the sales have given me a clue.  Some more success, is being accepted into a Art Show and asked to be a photographer in a Fashion Show. Being in Wilmington, NC has its perks so I love living here.  I want to show how beautiful and historic it is. There’s so much nature to enjoy. I’m going to keep listening to my God and not argue with him.

Does My Dog See Ghosts?

My Dog Cody

I moved into my condo a year ago and since then have been hearing noises that are interesting.  Sometime, I’ll hear a voice and just consider it my Bipolar.  I told my doctor and of course was concerned about me.  There were times when I thought I saw a figure out of the corner of my eye.   I’ve been told that I have good Intuition, which I know I have for many years.  I just don’t know if this is part of it.  Then, my dog started acting very strange.

Cody, my black Pomeranian will sit very still and stare up at the ceiling in the exact same corner every time.  At first, I just chalked it off as having a strange dog.  However, he does it every day.  Sometimes he will growl at the ceiling so this startles me.  I’ve even started looking up at the ceiling.  I even grabbed my camera and took pictures, but nothing.  Maybe I didn’t do it at the right time.   I don’t know what to do.

Recently, I read an article while research this problem and found there could be some medical reason he is acting like this. Or, maybe there are mice or birds, but I don’t hear then. Cody has acted strange ever since I’ve had him.  sometime he’ll sit and just stare at the wall like he is in deep thought.  My dog does think a lot, and he’s very smart.   Cody knows how to get my attention by just sitting and staring about me.  My dog can actually go in a trance.

Now, do I have a extremely smart dog  psyche or a smart crazy dog.

Premonition or Intuition

My family had left to go out to eat and I was alone at last.  Well, my dog Cody.  I was doing some paperwork when Cody starting barking crazy like and going in circles.  I kept telling him to be quite.  Then I heard mom and dad in the kitchen so I got up to see what they brought home for me. I went into the kitchen and there was no one there.  I was so shocked.  I felt like one  those  ghost hunters when they hear a noise and say “what was that?” They check it out and no one was there.  I stood there for a few minutes trying to figure it out, but there wasn’t much to say.  My dog wanted out to pee.

I suddenly got a bad feeling.  I heard of people who have psyche abilities and see flashes of something going to happen or has already happened.    I started worry about my parents.  They’re old and shouldn’t really be driving.  Can’t tell them that.

Then, they really came home.  Dad came to my room and said, “Vickie we had a little accident.”  My heart jumped and so did to find out what happen. It seemed mom had fallen on her face after missing a step  The miracle of it all is it wasn’t as bad as it should have been.  I was so grateful.

Was I hearing their voices a warning sign for me?  Or, am I going crazy?  This has been happening to me quite a bit.  I even see shadows move.   I’m very sensitive to noise and senses – do I have a gift  and just now opened up to it?  Or, am I loony tunes.

I’ve been following my instinct more than my heart and it has helped me out a lot.  My intuition has saved my life many times.

I Wanted To Believe There Was A God

Believing in God

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why can’t I believe in God?”   I so desperately wanted to believe in God, and all I needed was some sign.  I wanted to believe in heaven.

The time came when I experienced angels and especially God. 

It all began with my dreams that I’ve had for a long time.  You know the ones where your friends and family look at you and “Yea, keep dreaming.”   That always bothered me. 

I’ve had dreams since I was a little girl.  I wanted to be fastest girl on the track team in school.  I knew some how when I was at the starting line and looking at the finish line I was going to be there before anyone else.  At the time I didn’t know how I knew.  I just wanted it so badly, and I could see it happen in my mine.  That day I won and went on to All State.  I went on to believe that if you dream it, work hard you can achieve anything.

My dreams were all so real and some how I knew not to give up on them. I would see visions of my dreams for the future.  I started to read the bible when I was struggling with my life by reaching out for help.   The bible became my friend.

I use to think God didn’t exist because he never answered my prayers. When I asked him a question I never got an answer.  Or, maybe I just wasn’t listening.

My life has been a rough journey and I’m surprised I’ve made it this far.  I did a lot of stupid things I did in my life.  I use to believe if I was bad God wouldn’t have anything to do with me.  I learned that wasn’t so. I learned he loved you unconditionally, but I wanted him to love the person I wanted to be.

In 1989, I had a serious major surgery.  I had hemorrhage in my stomach  looking like I was 4 months pregnant.  I was sitting in a restaurant with a friend when my stomach began hurting really bad, and the jumpsuit I had on was getting tighter and tighter.  I staggered towards the door and the hostess ask if she could do anything and I said know.   I got in the car wondering how I was going to drive, but some how I knew god was on my side behind the wheel driving me home.  I got home and literally crawled up the stairs to my bed.  I called my dad.  I don’t know why I didn’t call the ambulance.  My dad was there in about 20 minutes.  They helped me to get down the stairs and every tiny move was painful.  I laid in back of the camper and every bump they hit I would scream. I was so scared I couldn’t imagine what was wrong. I got to the emergency room and the nurse said you need to empty your bladder.  “Are you kidding me!  I can’t even move!   About that time my doctored arrived with a big huge syringe full of vallum.   I didn’t remember anything for 2 days.

It turned out my fever got so high the doctors thought they were going to lose me so they put me in a bath tub of ice.  I don’t remember any of this.  The doctors ended up sending me to surgery. They had to remove half of my colon, uterus, ovaries and put a colonoscopy (a bag) on me. I woke up in my room with my mother sitting at my side.  I had tubes out my nose, stomach in couple of places and a huge bandage on my stomach.   I remember the doctor coming in and telling me “Your one lucky girl.  With the amount of blood you lost you shouldn’t have lived.”   I prayed that night and thanked god for seeing me through the surgery safely. 

Can you relate to this story?  God has played a part  in my life for a long time.  It just took a nudge to get me to listen to him.  When I began to listen and hear him a whole new way of life opened up for me. I realize now that it was God that was there with me all the time and there were times that he tested me.    My journey begins with the pains and failures I went through before God really came into my life and we worked together.  Come with me…

Dreams Can Come True With A Little Push

Let the Sun Rise on Me

I’ve been dreaming all my life.  People use to make fun of me, because my dreams were way out there.  Like fantasy dreams.  I didn’t like it when they made fun of me, because I was serious.

I use to have the wildest dreams of flying, seeing a witch crossing a full moon on Halloween night, but I’m not sure that was a dream.  I can have a dream and feel like it really happened or is  going to happen.

I use to say that I wanted to stop working.   I was so tired.  I visioned myself  not working and starting my own business. Everyone dreams of that.  I wanted it to happen.  God has plans for us, but it will only happen when it wants it to happen.  There’s a right place, time, situation and if I ask for it. I got it.  I have my little sunglasses store.  I love it.

I’ve been ill since I was 32, now 58.  It started with having part of my colon removed, including my uterus and ovaries.  I was a miracle the doctor said.  I should have died with all the blood loss.  I did survive,  however, from the transfusions I received, I developed Hepatitis C.Just so more bad luck.

My whole life was bad luck.  I feel it started with my abusive marriage.  I don’t know why I married the man I did.  But the miracle was my son.  God wanted him to be my son.  I use to hate God – I thought he was punishing me all my life with all the hard luck.  But you know what – I kept dreaming.  I think that’s what kept me alive.  I found out in the end that Bipolar was the illness that caused most of my problems throughout life.

Now, that I know what’s wrong I can try to live with it.  However, for the moment between all the messes I’m now living and taking care of my folks whom both have Alzheimer’s.   When I moved in I had to quit my job, break my lease and sell my car.  I recently found out that I have the early stages of Dementia so it’s sometimes funny to hear all of us say “I don’t know I can’t remember.”   I felt like it was time to see if I could get on Social Security Disability.  Everyone kept saying there was no way I would get it.  The doctors said I needed it. That was in God’s plan as well.

I’ve decided to go to see my son in two weeks in Wilmington, NC. I like staying on the beach.  The resorts and hotels were very expensive and pretty much booked.  I accidently found this place that’s perfect.  In fact, it looks just like a vision of the place that I wanted to settle in so I can do my writing and walk on the beach every morning.  I booked it.  If it’s what I think it’ll be I’m going to talk to the person that owns it to see if I could rent it for several months at a reasonable rate.  Who knows maybe I can work there and live there.  It could be another dream and it could come true.

Never dismiss your dreams.  God has  plans for you and he whispers these dreams in your ears they’re not just yours.  He hears you and he wants you to be happy.

My other dream is to meet a nice man.  I see a nice gray hair man with a nice tan with a white polo shirt on walking along the dock to his  big cruiser in the dock slip.  I accidently trip right in front of his boat.  He reaches how to help me up.  Our eyes meet each other and it was instant chemistry.  Needless to say we went out on a romantic  nightly cruise holding each other and whispering sweet nothings.  Yes, that was another vision.  But who knows it could come true.   Never give up on your dreams that all you have of your own.
