We Live By Faith, Not By Sight





To all my friends and readers who patronize this blog, may I refer you to my good friend-Shiela of Bluebirdy My Photo with url: http://bluebirdyliving.blogspot.com/.
I'm sorry if I still don't know how to make the proper linkage to her blog. Just copy her url and paste it on the search engine of the internet to access her blog.

She is suffering from an advanced case of lupus, fibromyaglia, diabetes and God knows how many more illnesses wracking her frail body right now. She's living with her very sick mother and an equally sick brother somewhere in Canada, and her husband is working somewhere in the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan unable to complete his papers to officially emigrate to Canada.

The condition of my dear friend is so volatile that she lives in extreme pain almost 24 hours a day. But she has to take care of her ailing mother because they are only three very sickly people in their house. There are so many times that she would pass out without her noticing it.

I enjoin you all, my friends and readers, to visit her blog and offer your expressions of love and support for her. I also enjoin you, my beloved friends, to offer your sincere prayers for her healing and also for her mother and brother too.

We are all one, united in love and harmony, and the pain of one is suffered by everybody. Let us all pray that she will believe that the Holy Spirit can effect that miraculous cure in her ailing body. Let streams of living water flow from our hearts and refresh her tired body and soul. Let us all become channels of God's blessings to comfort her and give her overflowing joy in her heart.

Happy Easter To All My Blogging Friends. God bless you all.

Hi Fingertalks,
Thank you so much my dear friend. She really needs our prayers and support.
What's shocking in her case is that they are only three in their house and all of them are all very sick. I hope the Lord will touch someone to extend physical help to them. Thanks for your response my friend. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Arthur,
Thank you very much my young friend. We can all practice Christian charity for her and her family by praying for them all. Thank you so much my young friend for your eagerness to help. May God bless you more for it. God bless you and your family always.

Sheilalu said...

hello Mel. Oh, this is so sad. I am easily touch when I heard of people being sick or having an ailment. I will include her in my prayer. I'll visit her website now.

By the way, I have been off to blogging for quite sometime and I havent been able to visit you here. I've been busy lately. My Father had a vehicular accident and was hospitalized for seven days. He was discharged from the hospital last Saturday and he's staying with me for awhile. He is still recovering now. Im asking for your prayers, please.

Take care and God Bless...

Will pray for her, may God bless her and the family always.

p/s Will visit her too.
Have a gr8 day Mel.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shielalu,
Yes, I will pray for your father. Don't worry, the Lord will restore him to health. Angels will minister to your father. Just relay to your father the message of hope and salvation from the Lord and you and him will be blessed tremendously by the Lord. Thanks for your visit and wonderful comments. Do visit my friend's blog and please pray for her too. God bless you and your loved ones always my friend.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Krystyna,
Have more patience with her because she is so sick that sometimes she just lose track of what's happening around her. There are only few moments that she is strong enough to blog and acknowledge comments. There were times in the past that she just ignored my comments on her blog and I almost quit on her. But I continued doing comments until she finally responded. I apologize for whatever shortcomings my friend have with you. Anyway, your gesture is seen by God and He will be the one to truly reward and appreciate everything that you do for the least of your brethren. Thanks my dear friend for your message of hope and love for her. God bless you more for that. Continue your articles on natural healings and the likes. I truly appreciate them God bless you and your loved ones always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Noushy,
Thanks for your prayers for her and please do visit her and say words of encouragement for her. God will bless you more for that. I could not help but notice your new picture. You have such kissable lips. He, he, he, *lol* No, I'm not being malicious or something, I just think you put there a very luscious looking lips. Are they yours or somebody else? I really am amazed at the things our female bloggers put in their profile's picture. I'm almost tempted to put up my own caricature- maybe a skunk. He, he, he, *lol* Anyway, first you put off those tantalizing eyes, next you put those luscious looking and kissable lips. What will you put up next, a million dollar legs? He, he, he, *lol* I'll be the first one to look at it if you put that up. I'm just having a good time at your expense my dear friend. Pardon this silly old me. Thanks for your visit my dear beautiful friend and God bless you and your loved ones always. Have a perfect day in foggy London.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

P.S. Lest my other female friends will be intrigued when I use my dear beautiful friend to Noushy, that was the result of her comment in my other blog- Points of View. When asked who is the most beautiful girl in the world, she answered that as far as her boyfriend is concerned- she is that one. That's why I always kid her with that phrase. Well, probably she really is, who knows? So there goes. God bless you all.

Keshi said...

beautiful encouraging post yet again Mel!

How true...live by Faith not by Sight.

But sometimes we can SEE beyond wut the naked eye can see too...:)


Keshi.

Noushy Syah said...

Hhehehe MEL
Not to worry, I know you just kidding..and reading your comment made me smile...and you make someone happy and for that only, God knows what kind of person you are...and the lips of coz it belongs to the owner lolz!!

Yea rite, I've visited her yesterday and left some inspiring words and hope she'll be strong and the least we could do is to pray for her too..

Thanks my friend..perhaps you might consider to put a special avatar of your choice...a buff bod maybe..lolz!!

Noushy Syah said...

p/s OK OK..if you put that avatar I'll be the first person to look at it as well....oopsss mind yea, just looking not ogling!!

Have a gr8 day my friend.Take care.

"Life is a Journey not a Destination" said...

That is so sad and painful, Mel but never mind God is all there at the end. She'll be in our prayers.

Anyway, I wish you and your family a great time on Easter!

God Bless!

tin-tin said...

i hope she'll be alright :)

krystyna said...

Happy Easter to you and to your family!!!


Thanks Mel for your kind words.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Keshi,
Thanks for your visit and your meaningful comments. The title is for my friend to really believe that she can actually be healed by the Holy Spirit. Thanks again. God bless you and HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Noushy,
Oh no my dear beautiful friend. You don't want to look at a wine cask or a barrel of beer do you? He, he, he, *lol* Joking aside, I really don't go for those stuffs although I don't mind other people doing it. As they say, different strokes for different folks. But kidding aside, you have the most luscious looking kissable lips that I have seen so far. And Sameera has the most beautiful smile and eyes that I have seen so far in bloglandia. Cinderella is very beauitiful too, mind you. I'm just a person who really appreciates beauty and I have no other intentions. BTW, I like the face of Mona too. So mysterious and fascinating. Oh, I apologize to all my blogger friends if I seem to point out my favorites here. I assure you, I find all of you exciting, attractive and mentally stimulating. In fact, I love you all with the love of the Lord. I really have to end this comment my dear beautiful friend before I sink deeper in my own quagmire. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES MY DEAR BEAUTIFUL FRIEND.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Christina,
Yes, she is indeed a suffering person but very strong willed and courageous too. Thanks for your prayers for her. I know she will recover very soon. I hope you all are doing fine in the UK with your family and are all in the best of health. I will also pray for your wellbeing. Just be thankful to the Lord for all the blessings that you are receiving right now and raise your kids in the healthy fear of the Lord. You have a heart full of love and so does your husband. May the Lord bless everything that you will do. HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Tintin,
Thanks for your prayers for her. I will be praying for you too that you find the happiness and joy that you are seeking for. God bless you and HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Krystyna,
I really appreciate what you have done for my friend. If she failed to acknowledge your comment, let me be the one to apologize for that. She's really very weak and most of the time she's out of control of her senses. Probably that's the effect of the very strong medicines she has to take. There are times that she is given morphine to alleviate the excruciating pain she feels in her whole body. It is to her credit that she can still function and care for her sick mom and equally sick brother. You are so wonderful my dear frind with all the love posts that you do in your blog and I have been so blessed by your well meaning and positive posts on natural healing and alternative and preventive medicines and cures. Keep on posting them for they are a boon to
mankind. God bless you and your loved ones always my dear friend. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU ALL.

*~*Sameera*~* said...

That was so noble my friend.

May Shiela and her brother and mother get well soon.As you said,may our prayers and blessings flow to her.Miracles do happen when faith is pure.

Happy Easter to you and your family dear friend.Have a lovely time.God Bless You all always.

JLee said...

Happy Easter, Mel. I will say a prayer for your friend :)
God bless...

Mississippi Songbird said...

I will pray for your friend. God Bless you and have a Happy Easter..

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Sameera,
Thanks for heeding my call. Thanks for your prayers for her and her family too. God bless you more for that. I hope you have a wonderful Easter celebration in Dubai. Maybe, privately since Dubai does not celebrate Easter(?) I hope everything's fine with you and you are in the best of health. Thanks for your visit and comments my beautiful friend. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Jlee,
Thank you my dear friend for your prayers. That is highly appreciated by me and my friend. God bless you more for that. HAPPY EASTER TOO.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Stephanie,
Thanks for your visit my friend. And thanks for your prayers too. I'm sure your prayers will help her and her family a lot. HAPPY EASTER TOO. God bless you and your family always my friend.
