The Perks of Covid!

Romans 8:28 -And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.    

It has been a very long time since I blogged.  I wanted to send out just a quick update.

Just over 3 weeks ago, I got sick.  I got really sick.  Fever for 9 days in a row, not a lick of energy - mental or physical, lost my taste (which was totally fine as I was drinking some of the nastiest immune boosters and taking Ivermectin, antibiotics and steroids (which I have to crush and take in a spoon).   I never got tested, but I definitely had all the symptoms of Covid.   

I would not wish this on anyone.....however.... there was a purpose in it all. 

I asked God why I was getting it when I have been around many people who tested positive within a day or so of them being at our house.... and I never got it in the past 2 years.   I feel He said that because I was around a few people who just got vaccinated, I was getting sick because of the "shedding symptoms" coming from them.  Yikes!  I knew that was a possibility, but I unfortunately did not know that these people were recently vaccinated.  I would have stayed away.   Secondly, I felt like He said the reason He allowed me to get so sick and for so long.......was because we He wanted me to have the natural antibodies.  He said that another "virus" was being released and it would be worse than this.  

Now before you all get upset over the effectiveness of vaccines and the risks, etc..... I feel everyone should have a choice on what they put in their body.  So if you feel the vaccine is for you, then great.  If you don't, then great!    I have done tons of research and have spoke to many doctors, nurses and other medical and non medical health practitioners and I personally feel not to do the vaccine.  My choice!! 

The benefits of covid - well like I said losing my taste helped with all the nasty concoctions I was taking   The other huge benefit was that I slept.  I slept 10-12-16 hours even - was in bed 24 hours a day for the first 2 weeks and then still sleeping into week 3.   So much so, that I just can't get out of bed until 10 or later.  I do a few things and then back to bed.  The crushing fatigue both physical and mental is not fun. I am praising God however for sleep!!!!!!!!      I'm improving, but I am still not up to par.   I have missed 3 weeks of work....and now am feeling like the Lord is telling me that job is done.   I am talking with my boss and seeing about doing marketing for him instead of the responsibilities I was doing.  It was just too much - trying to be 3 full time people workload in just 25 hours.   I just can't commit to any consistent hours as I am still recovering......but also because I feel like it's a new chapter.  My boss has been amazing and understanding.  It's up to God what happens there!  

I do feel like the Lord is wanting me to start doing Thrive Life again.  Thrive Life is the 25 year shelf life food - long term food storage.   I signed up as a consultant and you can look at my website if you are interested in it at all.  Https://   This past weekend I had a small tasting party, there were 6 of us.   4 of them signed up to be consultants because they saw the value of the product.  Also, as a consultant they will get paid to buy food and will receive credits as well.  Wow!  

The price of food in the grocery stores are going up up up!  This is a great way to stock up on food in case our shelves become empty.  Haven't you noticed the grocery store shelves are getting less and less items.  Crazy times we live in.    

The other exciting news is that with the help of a local Nurse Practitioner = I am weaning of thyroid meds (which I felt the Lord told me I was being over-medicated on)  and so far doing quite well.  That also may be a part of sleeping some.   

Ken is still painting and doing well. He did not get sick - thankfully!   

We are still actively and anxiously awaiting God's provision for the vision.  We have met some incredible people with similar visions and others who may join us once we have a property.   We started a home fellowship and that has been amazing too!  God is so good!

Please let us know how we can pray for you.   Thank you for your ongoing friendship!!!  

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
