I cried through the recorder prayer for me: and Holly, healing tears.
Thank you so much to you and everyone who sent the payers to us.
They mean a lot to us.
C b h (woof).,
Hi Chrissie & Holly,
Still praying for you and sweet Holly.
Enjoyed your lovely post!
You are such an inspiration to us all!!
Love & Hugs,
Hello Chrissie and Holly,
What a beautiful post! You said it all, and though you are unwell at the present time, please know your amazing spirit is blazing through...........Shine on Chrissie, even the Bible says that when all this "practice" is over here on earth, we will "shine bright as the stars".......
I am praying for you and Holly....
I want to thank each and every person who has posted here. It is very kind, thoughtful and touching to me! So many lovely people in our community, with big hearts :-).
I have been through an awful lot in the last few months. It has been a tough journey and it has taken its toll. I'm so so grateful to have the medicine I need re the protocol to help me through. Also every prayer for me and Holly we are so appreciative of. Though I am utterly exhausted and need lots of healing rest at the moment.
However, you know my friends that even though we go through times when with our health we can be worn out, we soldier on. One day at a time, even one step at a time, we, 'keep on keeping on,' as Mel says. We have to listen carefully every step of the way to our bodies and minds and spirits.
What do we need? More sleep, do it. More water, do it. More fresh air, do it. Relaxation, do it. When unwell it taxes us in every way. We need to learn to be gentle on ourselves and listen.
We all know nothing lasts for ever. The difficult times will pass. The stormy seas will lessen and lessen, till one day we are all on a calm and peaceful shore.
Yes we do need endurance, we need hope.
We need to be patient, we can not heal at once.
There are no magic wands.
However we have this thing called perseverance, we have God and we have each other.
Take care everyone and thanks for caring about me and Holly. It means a lot to us!
Love Chrissie and Holly (woof!).
Hi Chrissie and Holly,
I am praying that God heals you and that you will be as good as new. Remember that God is with you always, in the good times and the bad times.
Stay strong, I know that your faith is solid and unyielding. I hope this poem will bring you good cheer,
Footprints In The Sand:
One night I had a dream. I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and across the skies flashed scenes from my life. In each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One was mine, and one was the Lord's. When the last scene of my life appeared before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand, and to my surprise, I noticed that many times along the path of my life there were only one set of footprints. And I noticed that it was at the lowest and saddest times in my life. I asked the Lord about it: " Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there was only one set of footprints. I do not understand why you left my side when I needed you the most." The Lord said: "My precious child, I never left you during your time of trial. Where you see only one set of footprints,
I was carrying you."
Chrissie you are in my prayers also.
May the Lord heal you quickly
Thank you to Mel and everyone that was on Sunday’s truly lovely call. As stated in the previous post, the call was dedicated to Chrissie and Holly. I cannot fathom how they are managing, but God has given them the strength to persevere in this very challenging time for them.
Hopefully, the recorded call will be a source of cheer for Chrissie. We all wish we could be of more assistance.
Just know, Chrissie and Holly, that MANY MANY prayers for the two of you have been said and will be said.
I'm so sorry I missed the call today. I am in ER. That doesn't mean I'm not still thinking of you and Holly.
You are in my prayers daily. I miss you so much and ask the Lord to put a hedge of protection around you and Holly.
We all love you so much and it isnt the same without your sweet voice.
God bless you and Holly
Just wanted to let you all know this Sunday prayer call will be devoted to our most Lovely Angel Chrissie and her Sweet Holly.
See you there or be square.
Hi young lady and friend, it's sad that you're still not feeling well. God knows what He's doing in your healing progress. Be still and let Him do His work for you and Holly.
You are so very loved by this community by old members and new ones. We're All Praying for your recovery. I'm looking forward to hearing your knowledgeable voice again, in God times.
You've taught me a few things when I first came into this community and I'll always be grateful for that.
I'm here for you whenever you need me to be, rather it's for listening, crying or just plain ole talk.
Love you and Holly to pieces.
Hello Chrissie, I wanted to let you know I think your a wonderful Angel who always goes out of your way to help the many toxic disease suffers who need you like me, You helped me and I say THANKS.
Our family are all praying for your swift recovery.
Today I went for a brisk bike ride & along the way I see lots of Holly bushes & even a Holly tree that stands about 20 feet high, That is the only Holly tree I have ever seen.
I can see it is well taken care of as it stands proud in somebody front yard as it sways in the breeze showing it red berries & shiny leaves.
You stay strong and keep drinking lots of water.
Our Father the Good Lord will walk w/ you or carry you to wellness,
I just know it.
Know your Loved by me and so many others.
God Bless you & Holly as.--Donald

Mel let me know me that Chrissie could truly use extra prayers right now. I told him that I would definitely continue to pray for Chrissie and Holly but would also post to ask everyone to pray as well.
For those of you that are new and may not know Chrissie, let me just say that she is a very beloved member of our community. She has such a loving heart, faith in God and is always willing to help anyone.
We love you Chrissie and are praying for your (and Holly's) healing!
Just a note to let you know that I am offering up continued prayers for you AND Holly!!
You have been such an INCREDIBLE blessing and are missed by sooo many in this community, including me!!!

Lots of love and blessings,
Just a note to ask everyone to continue to pray for Chrissie.
She and Holly really need our prayers and our encouragement.
Hello, Chrissie and Holly!
Chrissie, I will be emailing you before the weekend is over to see how the two of you are managing.
If you feel up to it, please do not hesitate to call me if you are feeling down, need support, or need a distraction from any discomfort that you might be having. I am sure it is challenging to take care of yourself and Holly right now.
You are ever-present in the minds and hearts and prayers of all who know and love you. Don’t hesitate to lean on your forum family if you need extra support right now.
I so hope you are feeling and getting better! We miss your sweet spirit and voice on the calls and the posts! I have been keeping you in my prayers and sweet little Holly too!
I caught a terrible cold/sinus infection/sore throat over the Thanksgiving holidays! I don't go many places. Its easier to keep up with diet, protocol, etc... if I'm in my normal routine. But, I went to spend it with family and hugged someone sick.?? Mel says its a good sign! But, it sure has not felt good!! Its taken a week, but I am finally beginning to feel better.
I pray God's grace is a blanket of warmth, comfort, healing, and love that covers you!
Rest, heal, and come back to us refreshed. We miss you so!! Hugs, Your Christian Sis, Robin
I want you to know that I’m continuing to keep you in my prayers for your healing and Holly's too! I’m missing you and can’t wait to hear your voice! Please be sure to rest!
Prayers and Hugs!!
I would like to let you know you are sorely missed and we are in continual prayer for you and lil Wee Holly.
The effectual prayers of the righteous avail much.
I am sending you healing thoughts and prayers across the miles. To your beloved dog, Holly, too.
You give so much to all of us in this community, and we miss your bright spirit, and wise, gentle voice.
May God speed your healing!
We are continuing to send you healing thoughts and prayers. You mean so much to so many and you are so missed.
We miss your posts and your sweet voice on the calls and look forward to the day you are feeling much much better.
Love and hugs,
Linda and MacKenzie
I hope that this recovery stage won't be too long. You've been through so much and you are such a trooper through it all.
I hope that you know that you are loved and admired by many, myself included.
I'm glad that the surgery is now in the past and that you can move on and finally achieve complete healing. It may take a while, but at least these other problems aren't going to hinder your progress.
Please stay positive, get plenty of rest and take it one day at a time.
You're in our hearts, thoughts and prayers!
May God bless you through this trial and bring you out of it soon!
To our Chrissie,

She is a dear, sweet person who always makes sure others are thought of before herself.
I am so happy to know the surgery went fine. Sorry she is in pain.
May God send his loving Angels to watch over her and heal her to a complete recovery.
Chrissie asked me to let you know that today, the 14th, she had a major operation. She says she is still in the land of the living thank God!!!
She is on a morphine drip/catheter at present. She feels really sick and dizzy and in a lot of pain. She would really appreciate prayers for healing.
Wee Holly is missing her mum very much and is confused as to where mum is. Prayers for Holly too would be great!
Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts for Chrissie and Holly!!!!
Blessings to all
