As we face many storms faith is like an anchor that keeps us from drifting and casting away in order to continue our journey, sometimes facing frightening waves, sometimes on dry desert land or cold inhospitable weather .

Marathon of life: Finding out about Epylepsy

At least I knew what was attacking my body I knew what was happening yet it was so painful. Thyrotoxic episodes were exacerbating seizures.

In patients with established epilepsy (including generalized epilepsy syndromes), seizures and paroxysmal EEG
abnormalities can be exacerbated by hyperthyroidism In other patients, focal or generalized seizures occur only during thyrotoxic episodes. Seizure exacerbations usually remit when patients become euthyroid with treatment.

I´m a Lark With a Happy Song of Freedom!!!!!


I´m a lark that has crossed boundaries.... becoming free of fowler snares, I have a voice... I have a calling, a song in my heart......Would you care to hear?
There´s life after abuse: whether it be sexual, emotional , physical, labor or religious abuse, you name the kind. It just will never be the same..... but life can still be good. Don't keep it in darkness, shine divine light on it.Tell the truth.....
Open your mouth and speak words of freedom and deliverance, help others too. Put your head up high. May forgiveness flow so you can spread your wings and flight, eyes focused on what´s ahead, a new beginning towards God given destinies leaving those manipulative, castrating cages behind.
For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17

Trees Planted in the House of the Lord.

I had planned to take a photo of me next to my tree for my 53 birthday.
 I had no time and....... then it was blown down by Odile.

Through prayer God had always spoken to my heart in parables, using my beautiful Fragipani tree to reveal prophesy and show me so many lessons about life. A storm came to my life, I was knocked down an chopped in August 2013.  During September 2014 more than a year later Hurricane Odile threw my beloved tree (also called cacaloxuchitl) to the ground it was chopped to pieces and the trunk has stayed there because it is so heavy to remove and we haven´t had money to pay for it...... I discovered this morning that it is blooming!!!


Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green,to declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalm 92:1
I discovered it was blooming!!!
