Oneta 84

Good Day to the Blogging World.  I’m checking in to say I live, I move and I have my being in Christ Jesus…..  I got carried away.  😀  I’m checking in to say, “Hello,” with a few newsy kinds of things.  So here is my list for today.  But first something important…

I’m now beginning my seventh year of living since my near death in 2013.  Six years ago I lay in ICU in the Denver hospital knowing nothing of the “hurry and scurry” surrounding me to keep me alive.  If you have not read my story, you can do so at Why Me, Lord and I’m Glad I Did Not Die  Many of you know I started blogging after that time.  I believed and still believe the Lord had a new ministry for me.  Thus “sweet aroma” developed.  

  1.  I have been being “nudged” to tell my story regarding more than fifty years of experiencing God’s divine healing.  how traumatic it was when I “crashed” and had to give in to seeking help from doctors, the conflict I felt, and the surrender I had to make.   So I have been gathering material relating to my experience.  It is very personal and many will disagree with my decisions along the way.  But it is my story and I believe it is the reason I live today – faith in God’s word manifest in Jesus Christ the Healer.  Was I right or wrong?   I have some opinions but the end is not yet!  It is long and I will post on a static page.  But I will be doing posts along the way.  It is taking a lot of time.

  2.  Like a lot of you, I’m swamped with stuff that is taking priority over my blogging.  A lot of my blogging friends will think of me in a few days and wonder why they haven’t heard from me.  It will be because they were too busy to read today.  😀  Just like me.  I hate to dump my e-mail notifications but I did it.  Way too much to catch up.

  3. Three day week end to attend a Memorial service for my sister-in-law in Springfield, CO.  My brother was glad that she held out on her cancer battle until their 63rd Anniversary.  A bitter-sweet day to pass.  But it was marked by 63 years of togetherness.  LaVada was a remarkable woman of homemaking skills, musical and artistic talent, and Christian service.

  4. A family reunion is coming up next week.  I’m trying to complete a family project to take for that.  I’m making a CD of family albums.  Mostly completed last year but have some pages to add.

  5. I have hair problems I have to deal with tomorrow.  And yes, I do cook on occasion and eat on many more occasions than I cook.  Life does go on. …….Thankfully!






About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    May the healing Grace and Presence of God continue with you so you blog for many years to come.
    A dear friend of mine (a wonderful teacher) had a stroke 30 years ago. A miraculous recovery and a lifelong certainty of the Presence of God with her. Two months ago she had major surgery to re-align her whole body (she should have been a twin). New discoveries were able to re shape and straighten her structure. A woman of passionate prayer and faith in Christ as Healer. She has been recovering for past three months. She celebrated her 77th birthday two weeks ago and now will be married to her high-school friend. Both of them have teenage grandchildren. Wedding date is set for 27th July. It will be in Church- the one they both attend, and they hope Worship to the King of Kings will be paramount to it all. I look forward to hearing your story. Great Blog. I love all you share. Blessings!

  5. I was sorry to hear of your loss. Praying for you and your family. The passing of a loved one is hard to bear whether they have lived a long life or not. Just this week I lost a 13-year-old great-nephew to a tragedy. Death hurts. I long for the day when Jesus will put a final end to death. I think I will shout the loudest when it does happen.

    Sorry to hear about your sister-in-law.
    Our prayers with your family.
    Death is hard but one day the bell will toll for all of us.

    Thanks, Pranab. I’m due out of here in two hours; going with my son and his wife to a family reunion in SE Colorado. I’ve been very busy preparing an album for this occasion. Won’t be back for much blogging until maybe middle of next week. Reunion will be a bit rough because we have lost two members of my family this year, my sister’s husband and my brother’s wife. Hope you and your family are well.
