I'm Still Alive

I just wanted to post a short post to let you all know I'm still alive. We had severe storms and tornadoes come through the Atlanta, GA area last Friday and Saturday. Our phones got zapped and so did our computer. The only thing about our computer that doesn't work is the internet part. It cannot connect to the internet. I am on my husband's computer that is a much older model and am using dial-up internet to post this. I can tell you one thing....I thank God that He has allowed us to have dsl internet. This dial-up is very ssssssllllllllllloooooooooowwwwwwww!!

It is testing my patience to say the least. We are in the process of also packing up our house to prepare for our move to our new house on March 29th. So please don't forget about me and pray that we can get my other computer back that has been in repair for some time now. We had been using my son Ronnie's computer and that is the one that got zapped. He has been so wonderful and gracious to let us use his computer and wasn't the least bit upset about what has happened to his computer. He is so wonderful!!!

I hope to be posting some before we move...but it depends how well this thing posts on dial-up. I love you all and hope I don't lose you as a reader forever! Please pray for us!!

I'll be here patiently waiting for you to get settled in your new home...and get your computer back up to par...I have to use my husband's once in a while... and you are right dial-up is as slow as molasses in January,
I'm praying for you,
Mimi

Don't worry Julie, You aren't going to lose me as a reader! I've missed seeing you on AOL! I haven't been on a whole lot lately, but I always look for you when I sign on.

I'm still here.

So sorry about your computer. But I'm really happy that you and your family are doing well after the storms and that the computer was the only Casualty.

I hope and pray that your move runs smoothly and nothing gets broken or lost.

bro. chris....Thank you so much for your commitment to this blog. I've had so many problems lately keeping myself faithful to this blog that I have considered giving it up. I'm a real stickler for faithfulness in everything I do. I feel when I can't be faithful that I am a failure. Y'all have been so great to keep coming...even when I'm unable to visit y'alls blogs like I would like to.

ginger...thank you for your prayers. Ugh!! This dial-up is so frustrating!!

Sis. Julie said...

sis. mimi....you are sooooo sweet!! I can't wait to get moved and things to get back to normal. In the house we are still living in I have boxes everywhere!! I hate disorder too so it is very unnerving to me.

Sis. Julie said...

sis. mishel....Thank you for your prayers. I'm ready for it to be over with.

Sis. Julie said...

sis. pam....I miss you too!! I hadn't been using my AOL messenger for a while due to having problems with it signing off and then signing on again and getting some error message every time. So I just exited out of it. But my Yahoo messenger would stay connected all the time and that is the one I always use. Do you have Yahoo messenger? I hope to be back online very soon!!

Sis. Julie said...

sis. amy....I'm glad you are still getting around to blogs. I know you haven't been feeling well of late. I've been praying for you and Jelly Bean though. Love you Sis!!

Sis. Julie said...

sis. theresa....I pray nothing gets broken too. My BIL is helping us move for the second time and I'm going to be taking all the fragile things to the house myself. Last time he helped us he got tired and in a hurry and wasn't too careful with our fragile things. I'm going to try to prevent that from happening again. I just know I'm ready for it to be over!!

Sis. Julie said...

deborah...welcome to Julie's Jewels. I'm so glad you found me here. I pray you receive a blessing from what you read. You are welcome to come back as much as at any time as you would like.

Well, I for one am glad that you haven't given up yet - please don't do so! You are an encouragement to sooo many, including me. With your trials and struggles, it just gives us something to pray about and hold you up before the Lord more.

P.S. When you are online and not having problems, you can delete your extra comments by viewing your post and clicking on the garbage can that appears by the unwanted comments. That should delete them permanently (as right now the comments aren't there, but it still says "comment deleted."). God bless.

Oops, I just realized that I was leaving a comment on an older post. Still trying to catch up on some of my reading from this Spring (got so far behind in the Winter, but had all the Daily updates from Feedblitz saved in a folder in my email). I am sure your computer problems are fixed now.

VERY IMPORTANT!
