Christmas eve in the garden

 The Oranges over the wall are ready
I met the new neighbor who cut down the old fig tree and who will also be taking down the orange and a lemon tree. Good news of it is she said I could harvest the fruit.
 Dash gathered some for Christmas dinner
 Remembering to feed the wild birds is an act of kindness.
The wild foods are now parking lots and stores.
So They come to visit me and eat all the bad guys out of the garden as a thank you to me.
 The broccoli raab is flowering and Dash gave it a try.
The face  actually changed after he ate it and he likes it.
Better than the store bought for sure.
He also discovered kale and loved it too.
A radish harvest to serve at Christmas dinner.
As I sat in the rocker and trimmed the greens the dogs beg the imperfects and the trimming of the greens are a delight to the hens.
 This they just love
 At last a product to use for the powdery mildew.
Now perfume soap.

 The zucchini is suffering it.
 Carrots are thiving in their underground cave.
 The freezes are being kept away as I blanket it all every nigh.
It is like having babies again.
These are hung on the line to dry when the rains soak them or the dew refuses to dry.
I had a fun visitor in my garden with me we had a wonderful time of friendship.
I love having friends over who enjoy time in the garden with me.
My family gave me a family of gnomes for Christmas
Too fun!

good news on Eddie and Denise

Christ mas
Miracles are a part of the greatest story ever lived

Dear Ones
A very exhausted over joyed Denise called to tell us all...
Some how :)
Eddie has full conscientiousness.
He is with us cognitively.
His legs yet effected but the seizures did not take him.

He was sitting before her talking to her.

She with all and deepest gratitude thanks each and every one of you for your prayers.
Pray for her heart.
Her sister was unkind, Denise is wounded by the ill treatment that she was shown.

She is however rejoicing as I have instructed her to let her spirit and mind rejoice and worship but to let her body rest and be still.
She has not slept for several days and has also been ill.
I will keep you updated as I am.
Thank you all


Good Morning A Blessed Christmas
Eddie is alive this Morning your prayers were so embraced.


I just received a call from Denise.
The torment of the last few hours has been excruciating for her.
She discribes the events as the worst thing that she has ever seen.

Her sister arrived last night, she is also a diabetic.
Denise ended up in the ER her blood sugar spiked  and she was vomiting .
As soon as she would ease the same thing began with her sister.
Eddie was in a room and she could not get to him for the ER would not let her.
She convienced them not to admit her and to just let her see her husband and that that would ease her distress.
Eddies blood pressure spiked I mean really spiked!
At one point she got released from the ER and got back to him.
He was awake, unable to walk without a walker.
Dragging his legs.
She saw he was sweating so she got a cloth.
As she turned he said that he felt he was going to vomit and just at the very moment he fell back into her arms and began to seize they called in a trauma team and resesitated him.
She was ask to leave the room to a waiting room where her sister then fell ill to high blood sugar levels and DENISE had to car for her.

I have told Denise to ask a nurse to tell her sister to leave.
Eddies people are coming, I told Denise to have the nurse talk with them and tell them that your strength is limited and to not ask her all the details.
I told Denise that each time she repeats it it is like being punched in the heart.

She has not been able to stay with Eddie, only allowed to go in ever few hours.
He has been sleeping she has not seen him conscious sense before the seizures.

I am tempted to take up a fund and see if we can fly me out there and rent a car to be with her.
Steve has off till the 4th. I would have child care. The funding is an issue. I am in Arizona.
Please continue to pray.
I read several of your comments to her a few moments ago and it really strengthened her spirit.
Thank you all for your continued prayers.
