God’s Grocery Store!

29 May



God’s Grocery Store

As I walked down life’s highway,
I came upon a sign that read God’s Grocery Store as its name.
When I got a little closer, the doors swung open wide, and when I came to myself, I was standing inside.
I saw each of the disciples. They were all standing there. One handed me a basket,
And said, ‘My child shop with care.’
Everything a person needed was in that grocery store, and what you could not carry, you could come back for more.
First I got some PATIENCE.
HEART was in that same row. Further down was CONFIDENCE; you need that everywhere you go.
I go a heap of POWER and FAITH in me and you, and GAME SENSE was a must, I would need lots of that too.
I couldn’t miss the PASSION, for it was all over the place.
And then some STRENGTH to pull me through, and COURAGE to help me run this race.
My basket was getting full but I remembered I needed TRUST, and then I chose COMMUNICATION, for that’s important to us.
My arms were getting tired now but I couldn’t forget LOYALTY.
In order to get me past all this, I knew I could rely on UNITY.
I gathered up some SPEED, and then I found that INNER FIGHT.
I almost missed PRIDE and HONOR, but I saw them just to the right.
Then I started to the counter, to pay my grocery bill. For I thought I had everything I’d need to carry out my greatest WILL.
As I went up the aisle, I saw POISE and put that in. For I knew when I stepped outside, I’d meet with COMPETITION.
DESIRE and SACRIFICE were plentiful. The last things on the shelf, SPORTSMANSHIP was hanging near, so I just helped myself.
Then I asked God, ‘Now how much for these items in my bin?’
HE smiled and said, ‘just use them to help you WIN.’
Every time I face a CHALLENGE, now I know I’ll have everything I need, to OVERCOME ADVERSITY, and ensure that I SUCCEED!!!!



Proof of Miracles!

Dear Readers,

Since I reached out to you in a time of need I feel it is only far to keep you updated on Sam’s recovery! All your prayers, positive thoughts and energy did work and it was totally amazing, it would make even the most ice cold hearts melt in to puddles making believers out of every last drop of them!
From Sam’s family!
Dear Family and friends,
I know many of you have heard by now that Sam 's continued progress allowed him 
to come home from the hospital on Friday (this stay was 5 1/2 weeks). Needless 
to say, everyone was pretty excited, especially Sam. I wanted to 
make sure you knew the good news. 

He still has a long way to go. He is very weak but getting stronger each day. 
His immune system is still suspect and he must be extremely careful for the next 
3-6 months and will be required to check in and take meds throughout that 
period. We continue to be optimistic that everything will continue to fall in 
place. We are not done worrying yet but 4 of 5 major stages are behind Sam. This 
last stage of recovery from transplant will restrict him some but he will start 
returning to normal life as he gets stronger. 

This will be the last communique I send out as I am hopeful Sam will continue on 
his path to full recovery. 

Thank you all for the great support. Sam and the family really benefited. Thank 
you Thank You!
Asklotta and staff will MIND YOUR BUSINESS today feeling very blessed for all of Sam’s e-supporters and for his continued recovery! Thank you!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO

This Really Will Be Short and To The Point and completely filled with much gratitude!

Dear Readers,
I received these exact words from Sam’s family last night…
“Well, your wonderful, loving, caring, generous plea for prayers for Sam is working.  He’s better!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have no idea how helpless I felt and the outpour of kindness was truly amazing. It would have melted even a stone cold heart of hearts and turned a nonbeliever in to a believer, I do believe! Another meaningful coincidence!
“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. 
Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But
I’ve brought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my
troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
-Dr. Seuss
My pleas for prayers (August 21 posting) were answered because of you, because YOU “brought a big bat” to Sam’s troubles (to his families), You brought them hope! You brought me hope! Thank you, thank you, thank you! 
You have proven, you have shown, there are more of YOU then there are of them!
Asklotta and staff will be MINDING YOUR BUSINESS today filled with gratitude and love for all of YOU!!! 
AND in complete awe of the power of prayers, positive thoughts and positive energy!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO

This will Be Short and To The Point…

21 Aug
Dear Readers,

This is going to be short and to the point….

I am not a religious person but I am very spiritual, if that makes any sense? I truly believe in the power of prayer and especially in the power of collective prayer.
My dear, dear friend’s 23 year old son is going through a rough and terribly unfair time right now. Sam (and his family) have been courageously battling cancer for the second time in Sam’s short life. First time when Sam was in High School and now the second time one week before he was to start his first job out of college. 
Fast forward…
…It has now been about two weeks since the bone marrow transplant and all was going great until this past weekend. Sam has recently come up against another terribly unfair situation/complication. 
I am reaching out to my family, friends (old and new), e-friends, acquaintances, loyal readers, occasional readers, first time readers, believers and non-believers and all those in between. I am asking, I am pleading for your prayers today for Sam, for Sam’s recovery! I don’t care what God you believe in, I don’t care if you even believe in a God, maybe you could click her heels three times with a positive thought for Sam’s recovery. Fay Moore: I Want To Be A Writer started praying yesterday for Sam…thank you again Fay!
Please know Sam and his family are truly worthy and so deserving of every prayer and every positive thought you have to send their way. Their love, energy and commitment to each other, their family and their family of friends is second to none. 
Please, please, please take a moment today to pray and/or wish for a fast and full recovery for Sam! 
Asklotta and staff is MINDING YOUR BUSINESS today completely believing in the power of prayer for Sam’s full recovery!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO
