Martie--

My son and I have been remebering you in our nightly prayers. We hope that you are on the road to recovery quickly! God bless!

I hope someday you get the chance to live like you were dying....

Thank you all for coming to check in on Martie.

The newest update is that she is in line for surgery tomorrow, and at this time, if all goes as planned, she will go in at 2:00 p.m., Pacific Time.  The surgery will take up to 4.5 hours.  Taylor wants to wait to call until she is out of recovery, which could take from 2-4 hours.  

In the meantime, Martie has been able to read all of your notes.  Her bit of dizziness is keeping her from responding at this time, but please, if you have written a poem in Open or Spiritual, please feel free to link these poems to this thread, so she can locate them easily.

Taylor concluded that your every word and wish, and prayer, are doing much to bring a deep sense of comfort and healing to her even now.  I know that after she is through with this ordeal, your gestures of love and kindness will bring even more to her as she recovers.

Martie wanted you all to know that she loves you all, and cannot thank you enough for thinking of her.  

Keep your love light glowing, Poets.  It is doing our Martie a world of good.

Hi, Sunshine! Thanks for the up-date.
2 pm Pacific Time is 5 pm where I live and so I will be praying big time all during her surgery ~ and afterward.

As requested so that Martie doesn't have to go searching for all the poems that have been written for her, here is the link to the poem that I wrote entitled "Crystal Clear"
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum94/HTML/003259.html

Martie, this will all be behind you before you know it! You have a whole lotta lovin' and prayin' being sent your way from your circle of friends here at pip!

Loveya!

The fire is lit
the prayers in flit
to gather you in the healing light
Be well, gentle Sis ...
I keep the vigil this night~

And on the morrow's rise of sun
you can know for sure
as the earth-doctor's do their thing
my Spirit will be there with you
until their magic is done~

Thank you Sunshine, for the untiring sunshine that you spread for Martie and for your updates.  

For my own clarification while I am in Announcements and to copy offline, Martie's going into surgery at 2pm Pacific time means that her operation will start at 11pm on Friday night, South African time, that she will come out of surgery about 3.30am on Saturday morning and she will come out of recovery probably somewhere between 5.30am and 7.30am on Saturday.  I will be praying so very extra-hard, along with everyone else, that there will be a wide golden pathway of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of prayers between us and God that will make it even easier for God to use to ease Martie through the operation and back to the beginning of a wonderful, gentle, pathway to perfect health.  I will use my impatience to fuel my patience waiting for you to be ready to be back posting on Pip.  Taylor, please organise for a huge room at the hospital for us all and our prayers to fit into, waiting with you for those hours which will seem very long, but which will pass, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour.  I know you know we will all be with you, every mini-step of the way.  Keep up your strength, courage and faith, and if you should falter for a second, lean on God and our prayers.  We are there with you.

Lots and lots and lots of love to you, Martie.  It is now (South African time 10.25pm - Pacific time 1.25pm) about 33½ hours before we will get the message from Sunshine that your operation was successful and that you are resting and that you are on your way to recovery.  What a wonderful moment that will be!  

Strength, courage, faith and love to you, our Martie, (and rest as much as you can in preparation for that wonderful job that God, the surgeons and our prayers are going to do on you)

My prayers go out to Martie and her family.  It's amazing what the power of prayer and love can do!!

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

Hello Martie,

I didn't bring a poem or link this evening.
Just came to sit here quietly for a little while, and visit.
I do that from time to time during my day,
ever since this thread started.
It feels warm here-you can actually feel the love
from all your friends, here at Passions.
This is a good place to be..now, to think,
and pray, for a speedy healing for you.
Do you feel the peace and serenity here too?
I feel closer to you here.
I imagine the others do too.
Are you resting as you should?
Soon this will all be over
and you can put it behind you.
I miss you dear Martie...we all do.

We're all holding your hand,
I know Taylor has the other one and won't let go.
Tomorrow, I'll light a candle,
imagine you surrounded in a healing protective white light,
and I will say more prayers.
Prayers for you to come through this just fine.
Prayers for Taylor and your family to remain calm.
And, prayers for the doctors
that God will guide their professional hands.

I'll say goodnight now Martie.
Sleep warm and comforted.

I'll be back tomorrow morning.

Hugs and love, Nancy Lee.

I'll be watching for that great comment saying the successful surgery's over and you're doing fine.  Meanwhile, may you and yours rest securely in our Lord, who will be with you all the way.

Martie... I just want to say that every day since I have known you, I have had great respect for you. Your talent and heart are both as big as the universe unfolding and here are the roses I am holding... I give them to you, Flower Girl...



See you soon, sweet lady..... I send you peace and hope and love and healing energy and all the light that you've given out reflected back to you!

Well Martie my heart and prayers are with you tomorrow, along with lots of love.  You are in great hands that is for sure and you are especially lucky having a very special angel watching over you.   Hurry back dear lady.

Just checking in before work to say my prayers are getting intensified as it gets closer to your operation.  It is 7am on Friday morning here in South Africa now.  It is thus 10pm on Thursday night where you are.  It isn't long now before your operation will be over and Sunshine will be telling us that it went successfully and that you are resting well and recovering.  Rest well now to keep your strength up and don't be afraid - what with God, the surgeons, the 3 ministers, Taylor, your family, your Pip friends and all the prayer lists you are on, and last but not least your feistiness, success is more than assured.  After the operation, rest well and do what the doctors and Taylor tell you to do.  We will wait patiently until you are strong enough to return to posting on Pip.  Taylor is doing a wonderful job of keeping us informed via Sunshine so don't rush back to posting before your doctors and Taylor are happy with that.

Lots and lots of love

- Owl

Ninety-first psalm
source;  John E. Gould

He that hath God his guardian made
shall underneath th'Almighty's shade
fearless and undisturbed abide;

Thus to myself of him I'll say,
He is my fortress, shield and stay,
My God; in Him I will confide.

His tender love and watchful care
shall free thee from the fowler's snare,
From every harm and pestilence.

He over thee His wings shall spread
to cover thy unguarded head.
His truth shall be thy strong defense.

He gives His angels charge o'er thee,
No evil therefore shalt thou see:
Thy refuge shall be God most high;

Dwelling within his secret place,
Thou shalt behold His power and grace,
See His salvation every nigh.


HE is your guardian;  we watch and pray.

Much love to you, Martie.  ~ Karen
