An Emergency Re-Post

This is an emergency re-post of Bluebirdy's post at her blog. Please pray for her, for her healing and those of her mother and brother too. Please pray that God will send a godly person to take care of their physical needs and angels to take care of their spiritual and emotional needs. And if you have money to spare, please help her financially. I would appreciate it very much if you could visit her blog and leave comments of encouragements and prayers. THIS IS THE TRUE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS- TO GIVE LOVE ON CHRISTMAS DAY. Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to you all. May the Lord shower you all with showers of blessings from His great storehouse of blessings. God bless you all. I love you all with the love of the Lord.

Warmest regards,
Mel Avila Alarilla

LORD Please send angels, physical ones and spiritual ones!

I am so tired! It feels as if I have been in labor for 6 days. How many women can do that? With my second daughter, I was in labor for 3 weeks straight. She was 2 months premature and they had IV medicine going into both arms trying to stop her from coming too early. That was VERY hard, but I did not have to push her out every couple of hours, like this illness is acting like. Every few hours I push uncontrollably as if I am giving birth to a baby or to some part of my body. Too weak to even shower or bath or change clothes or think or get something to eat or talk on the phone or to think of a solution. I just lay here and pray and listen to the TV to try to get my mind off the pain. Too weak to go get medical help. Have no one here to help me, my mother is upstairs very sick too. She needs to go to the Dr. in 12 hours and I have to think of how to get her there because I can't take her. There is no way to explain how tired pneumonia makes a person, and how tired childbirth makes a person, and I am experiencing it many times a day. Lupus has almost the same degree of fatigue...and I'm running out of adrenaline to keep pushing myself on. My brother is having what seems like a nervous breakdown and I am too weak to even understand his feelings or to encourage him. I always thought God made me his sister so that I could help him with his heavy weight in life, and I have failed him too. I am useless most of the time. I feel half dead. I want to go "home" if this is how life will be. You are not "living" unless you can be "doing" something. This is not life. It took me an hour to write this. I hope the saying is true that says "It's always darkest just before the dawn". That would mean that things will turn around soon. Depression stinks! Please don't tell me to just snap out of it or just cheer up. Things like that do not work when a person is too weak to breathe or eat or change clothes for days. Too tired to know what to pray for, so I will ask the Holy Spirit to pray for me. I'd cry if I had more strength.
whoever I am. lol
