"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

I cannot believe it has been a week already since I went to Urgent Medical and was diagnosed with fluid in my ear, and high blood pressure.

Even though the meds that I am taking now for these ailments give me side affects, i.e. drowsiness, dry mouth and hoarseness first thing in the morning, I cannot tell you how much better I feel!

Have not felt this good in a very long time. I still am plagued with the dizziness, as I do suffer from vertigo.

For many months, close to a year now, I have been staring at an empty 30 gallon fresh water fish tank. Emotionally and physically I just had no desire to replenish it. Could not make myself go and get fish. The only thing that was alive in the tank was one catfish and floating algae that collected. I so enjoyed my fish tank when it is cutting loosing with fish enjoying themselves.

So, feeling pretty good physically and super charged Spiritually today, after church (which was SUPER AWESOME BY THE WAY) I went to Pet Supermarket and invested in some Albino Cory's, Serpaes, Neons, Black Neons, and White Skirt Tetras.

I missed de-stressing and unwinding while sitting in front of my tank. So, now at least I have something "live" to look at once again.

  1. HI JBR - this is such wonderful news - you are living large!! Your fish are amazing - And you have really beautiful hair!! :-)
    Love to you'

  2. Very cool. I think that would be a great stress reliever.

  3. I love this post, JBR. Sometimes it's the little things in life that bring us the greatest joy. Plus, it was awesome to see you sharing real pictures with us! From the bit I can see, you are beautiful :) I'm glad the meds are helping and that you felt refreshed after church! God bless you, my friend :)

  4. That is awesome to see you in the pics! You're becoming more courageous, that's the first thing I thought when it comes to the Lord's healing for you and my prayer for you.

    Because of our allergy, my son's pets long time ago were a couple of small fishes in a small tank. Easier to manage but they did bring "joy" to us.

    I pray the sight will bring you a little relaxation to lower that "bp" and keep you mind off of daily stresses you encounter. God bless.

  5. I'm chuckling as I looked at my friend JBR watching her fish! Here's why... when I met my hubby 100 years ago, he had 13 yep THIRTEEN aquariums in the apartment he shared with some friends. He had all the ones you mentioned and salt water tanks etc. He just got carried away... one night he stayed up most of the night to help a very expensive sick fish get well. The next day he decided enough is enough, and he sold every tank and every fish, and that was that!! :)

    Enjoy yours, he sure did!!


    I loved seeing your picture here.

  6. Aquariums are such a great stress reliever. I find the movement of the fish so relaxing! Thanks for sharing these pictures.

  7. I'm SO GLAD you are feeling better! This is a really positive post and it makes me happy to read it. Enjoy your new pets!
