oh beloved brethren, brothers and sisters, I cannot convey in human words, how thankful and grateful I am , that you poured your souls out to the Throne, to God, to Messiah, on the behalf of my precious niece Ally.
let me tell you all what has happened thus far; its 1 AM Saturday.....when I wrote this plea, I had just left our family reunion up north, on a lake with the border to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, though it still be in the great State of Wisconsin, and driven the 5 hours SW to my ranch, which lays on a ridge in the wild, desolate and rural area of Wisconsin, called the "Driftless", the first thing I did was phone up north, as requested, because they were concerned, as last month I lay in the hospital, not knowing if the Lord wanted to bring me Home, or have me stay here, awaiting the Call. Jesus still wants me here,
(forgive me, if its seems i'm digressing, but in the Night Watch, when I wrote to you, it feels as if I am REALLY talking face to face, with every one of you dear saints, whom I love in the Lord, and I just let me heart and fingers GO....)
the call was made, I missed them all SO MUCH, but within an hour on facebook, my sister J (she is the younger sister of the mother of my son, G)reporting that Ally had just arrived in the ER up there.....THAT is when I made the initial plea for prayer.
Several hours later, I was able to get ahold of my other son N, and he told me, Ally was back to the vacation lake home, and everything was "alright".
But, overnight, fluid began to build up in this dear one's head, and J had to take Ally back again to the ER, and she was checked into the ICU, where they drained 100 cc of excess fluid build up, tended to the dear girls pain, and got on the phone/computer(for records) with her doctors in California....she is resting comfortably, and though she wont be leaving TODAY, as was the plan....they will be leaving Tuesday when the doctors clear her for travel.
so, my dear brothers Carmine (and Mrs) my precious brother Bill the Texan, my new brother William from Jo-burg, and that prayer warrioress "Mama", if you could just approach the Throne just some more in intercession for our little one Allison, I would forever be in your gratitude, love, and this most holy ministry of prayer.
This is why I felt led, so Powerfully to write long to you all, because what REALLY binds us together, is our Love of the Risen Messiah, and the Blood that cleanses us from all sin, the Word we all eat, that powerful Word, so pure and so sweet....we are all the Household of God....forget all that "thinking" in regards to this Most Simple faith, throw out the words, "religion", "doctrine", "theology"....and just follow Jesus with the simple faith of a child, totally dependent on God, and dead to self, and dead to the flesh, white with the bright Light of the Love from God.....non agenda Love, selfless love, esteeming all above yourself, humble, meek, a servant....sweet, winsome, always ready to hug, to plant a holy kiss on a cheek, or wipe a tear from anothers face....oh, the Majesty of God, and the Power of the Indwelling Holy Spirit.
I speak the truth in Christ, when I tell you, how much I desire to take all of your hands in mine, and for us, to have a face to face prayer meeting, followed by a love feast, with much love and talk....and yes....laughter.....and more love, because love binds over a multitude of sins.
I write that because I read some of the other threads on this forum, and they just break my heart, and in writing that, I am not without sin in such regards, as I have participated in many a "cyber scrum" on this forum, to my shame....but the days grow dark, and that is a "luxury" we can no longer afford.
so you four saints, brothers and sister (and any who silently prayed) that is what I wanted to say to you with love, your brother, eternally, neil in Jesus' Love
