Ron’s Update and New Year Blessings…..

GOOD DAYMany Blessings  to all our Blogging friends for the New Year and thank you again for all your Encouragement and Support last year, it was very much appreciated especially by Ron when later in the year he had to endure a very troublesome time of ill health.

Ron  is now waiting for another Biopsy to determine if the Tumor that was removed was caused by Bone Marrow Cancer but being the Christmas season and New Year many are on Holidays and he now has to wait till January the 20th for an Anesthesiologist to be in attendance, this is a much more involved Biopsy than the previous ones and has to be done in Hospital under Anesthetic. We will keep you all up to date with the outcome of this procedure.

I would also like to share with you today a Poem for the New Year, called “The Choice is Up To You”  written by a friend of mine, Marcell Billinghust, she  is not a Blogger but hopefully  will be one day,  Marcell has a lot of encouraging Truth to share. I met Marcell  when going through a very bad Storm in my life, which I will share about with all of you when the time is right. Marcell like my other close friends at the time offered  without hesitation unconditional Christian Love, Compassion, comfort and Support, which I will be eternally grateful for.



The Choice Is Up To You

As we stand upon the threshold of a brand New Year;
Let us all go forward, with joy, not gloom or fear.

For the past has gone for ever, with its problems and
its care.

The future lies before us with so much more to share.
Remember all the good times;

Learn from experience too, there is so much still waiting,
for me and also you.

Put your fears behind you, don’t let your problems bind,
there is so much you can learn, to bring you peace
of mind.

Jesus bids us come to Him and lay our burdens down,
knowing He will bear them all and one day grant a crown.

As you reach out in simple trust,
You’ll open up the door, to find the secret of true joy,
if you really long for more.

Just take a step of faith today, to trust Him and believe,
The promise; He’ll forgive your sins;
New life, you will receive.

He’ll grant a new beginning the past wiped clean, forgiven.
To know that when you too pass on,
You’ll find true joy in Heaven.

Your future lies before you, the choice is up to you.
It only takes one simple step to find true freedom too.

Marcell Billinghust

Thank you Marcell for those beautiful word’s of assurance in our God of Love.

Christian Love to you all in Christ Jesus – Anne.

    Well Anne, a new year has begun again, and with it new goals set. Last year was a tough one for me with dealing with lots of extra pain for the last half of the year. I didn’t do much blogging on either of my blogs (here and at my old home – Xanga). I’d like to get back into blogging more faithfully. Thank you for sharing your friend’s poem. We have so much to be thankful for – with Jesus being our Savior, and our Friend, and so much more! I’m sorry to hear of Ron’s health problems. I shall pray for you both at this difficult time. Blessings – In Christ, Carolyn


    • So good to hear from you Carolyn and that you will be Blogging again but I’m sorry you have been suffering, I understand the frustration of trying to do things when your in pain.

      We don’t have to be Happy Clappy about our suffering but we can rejoice we don’t go through it alone (see below) God will help us endure and He will bring something good out of it and if needed He will remove it.

      Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

      Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.

    Hey there my friend, Hope you and Ron are both well, You and Ron are never far from my thoughts. My prayers go out to you both. I am settled again and relaxed after a week in Adelaide.


    • Dear Barb, you are always like a breath of fresh air, so kind and thoughtful, I’m still very much in awe that you gave up all your own planes for Christmas to go and look after your Sister, you have such a beautiful and caring heart, thank you for our Blogging friendship and our phone friendship, you bless me greatly with your honesty and kindness.

      Christian Love Always – Anne

    I hope and pray you all get a good report. Thank you for your encouragement.


    • Thank you Wally for your encouragement too, and for your concern for Ron, it is very much appreciated.

      Wow Ark sure likes to put others down, I just had another comment from him in spam, I also found someones elses comment that had been spammed by mistake, it helps to check but I will just ignore Arks abuse in future.

      How sad that he is dead Spiritually but than we remember that the Prodigal Son, was also dead but Wow what a welcome home when he came to his senses and repented. But God won’t be Mocked, Ark better be careful, his last day just like with all of us may be today, we need to be prepared.

      It’s been raining so I was not able to go out as planned on my Mobility bike and Ron’s at his daughters , so no car, anyway it gives me a chance to respond to more comments like yours, thank you for visiting and sharing Wally, I look forward to your next Post Hmmmm I better check that I clicked follow or I will miss it.

      Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne


      • Wally Fry says:

        Back at you on the thanks Anne. And look, I wouldn’t worry about Ark. Honestly, my plans don’t really include engaging him anymore and most of his comments I am just deleting. But, you seemed willing to talk to him, and that was cool by me. I just keep thinking maybe something I might say would make a difference…then I remember it’s not up to me. I’m shaking the dust off of my feet and moving on down the road LOL. Have a good rest of our um evening, or whatever it is down there!…Wally


        • It is of course your choice Wally and you need to do what you feel God’s asking but as for responding on your Blog to Ark, I do so out of respect for you. Jesus tells us what we are doing for others we are doing to or for Him and I was upset by Ark’s put down of you.

          You have pearls of wisdom Wally that need to be shared without Ark belittling them and you, as I said I don’t dislike Ark or anyone else but we need to stand up for God’s Truth which is what you are doing too and so I support you as my Brother in Christ Jesus, I do very much respect you in The Lord for your witness to His Goodness.

          Blessings – Anne


          • Wally Fry says:

            Anne…Ha..Ark doesn’t hurt my feelings a bit. But, thanks for your concern. I have seen him say far worse things to many other people, including me…my skin is thick. But, thanks!


            • Wally, I have decided to no longer respond to Ark on your Blog, like you I feel there is no point, he is just rejecting God’s Truth and rubbishing anyone who stands up for it, this is because he can’t understand, he does not have The Holy Spirit so it’s all foolishness to him (1Corinthians 2:9-16) and allowing him to rant on, may do damage if anyone takes him seriously, as they will be greatly deceived.

              Arks responses to those who stand up for God are just empty words, he has no real understanding and so trusts in hearsay and fleshy man’s ramblings and following his links are pointless as they are also just Carnal man’s understanding, reasoning and logic and are based mostly on hearsay without reliable confirmation.

              I will still visit you and comment when lead to on your messages – Blessings – Anne


              • Wally Fry says:

                Thank you Anne…God blesses our efforts when done for the right reasons…not just our successes.


                • I’m anointed Evangelist Wally under God’s Authority, I have asked for His wisdom and empowering as He asks us all to do and I have received them as He promises we will.

                  I don’t make myself respond Wally to people like Ark or anyone else and nobody has to tell me to do so but God will not force Ark or anyone to respond regardless of our faithfulness to witness which we are all called to do and we will want to in Christ Jesus, The Holy Spirit is not mute.

                  Yes as you say Wally it’s not about our personal success, like you my heart seeks to glorify God, this is why I share my life story with links, because it does this, only He could have done the Miracles and Signs and Wonders that I have experienced in my life, they were impossible for man to do so they are not counterfeit and they were all witnessed and some Medically documented. But what is wonderful, only God could have healed my wounds and given me a forgiving heart for those who hurt me, even when they go on doing so, yes they will reap themselves the evil they do but I pray they will come to heart repentance including Ark but it is still their choice God does not want Puppets.

                  I was wondering Wally why are you now moderating my comments , don’t you Trust my responses or have you heard slander about me ?, others tell me they have but than Jesus tells us we will be persecuted when we follow Him.

                  Blessings Anne


                  • Wally Fry says:

                    Actually Anne…only the comments containing Ark or Arkenaten. are all good! prob!


                  • Wally Fry says:

                    Anne…I was moderating just comments containing Ark..or Arkenaten…not allowing all of his…sorry…you are good to go…trust me!


                    • Thank you Wally, Wow what a mix up with the comments, this comment spammed because of having Arkenaten in it, not sure why the other one did as it didn’t have his name or why the last one didn’t either , Technology is a mystery to me.

                      As for continuing with Ark etc are you being blessed by their input or are others ?

                      How did I feel, yes very concerned for you and others must feel the same, your a nice man and my Christian Brother but if you feel the need to continue with them than that is your decision, you are the Authority on your Blog Wally and if this is how God is leading you than He will bless your Ministry to these lost souls, No they may never repent but others may after reading yours and other Bloggers responses.

                      I will respect what ever you decide to do Wally and continue to follow you but please respond to my comments too even if it is with correction but if so please confirm with Scripture and I will do the same with you.

                      Blessings – Anne

    Happy and blessed new year.May the Lord brings peace to every home in our fragile world. Jalal


  5. dwwork says:

    You and Ron are in my prayers.


    • Thank you David, we really do appreciate the Love and compassion you have shown us during this Storm, how wonderful that through The Holy Spirit God motivates His own and known Children to Pray and comfort others.

      I’m behind in my Blogging but did intend responding to your last Post, I appreciated your response to my comment, sending a like from their Blog as some do, is just not sufficient, although a good way to thank someone else who comments on peoples Blogs.

      I have been having Atheists and Cult members consuming a lot of my time David so I’m planning on writing a Post sharing how to recognize them and would value very much your advice, perhaps there is something that I have overlooked and your experience with them gives you knowledge that many don’t have. It’s so important for us to test the spirit of those who seek to teach us, if we don’t confusion or worse may result.

      Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne


  6. Marcell Billinghurst says:

    Thank You for Your Kind Words and Encouragement about my poem. I pray it will be used to bless and encourage others, Marcell Billinghurst


    • Thank you Marcell for allowing me to share your Poem on our Blog and I’m sure many will be blessed like we were, I have saved all your poems there is much Truth in them. Thanks for visiting and sharing, I really appreciate you doing so.

      Many blessings for the New Year, Christian Love – Anne


  7. Happy New Year to a new found blogging friend… beautiful thoughts in the poem. I hope Ron’s biopsy has favourable results… the waiting is stressful… Diane


  8. Ron says:

    Thanks for the lovely poem Marcell, very appropriate for the New Year. As you say “learn from experience there is still much waiting to do ‘ Guess that’s for me in the New Year too, being patient and much waiting , thanks for all thoughts and prayers.



  9. I was thinking of you last evening as we watched Sydney’s fireworks bring in the New Year. My best to you both for a very Happy New Year! May my prayers reach you and I pray it will be a very healthy one, blessings,


    • Thank you Ellie, your prayers are greatly appreciated and also your well wishes too, right now it’s just one day at a time, Ron is still in pain from the Operation but it is decreasing. I’m way behind in Blogging but hope to catch up in the next few days.

      Christian Love – Anne.


      • Marcell Billinghurst says:

        Thank you, Anne. You are welcome. God bless from Marcell


        • You perhaps did not realize at the time Marcell but your Poems and support both on the phone and in your e-mails helped me greatly, everything was in such a mess and I was hurting greatly, I know God sent you and Joy, both strangers at the time, to comfort me and as I said I will be eternally grateful, all my close friends were once strangers until like you Marcell, they walked into my heart.

          Blessings – Anne.
