still remember my mom loading me up in our banana yellow Grand Torino with black
vinyl interior and no AC for yet another rush trip to the Emergency Room as I
gasped for air and coughed myself hoarse. Allergies
made my skin just one big splotch of red rashes that came and went, but the
worst was an allergy on my feet. I
was in so much pain, but specialists and doctors were baffled so they suggested
a remedy of socks, sandals (I might be allergic to the glue in tennis shoes) and
an alcohol based liquid that burned even worse than the backs of my legs from
the hot vinyl car seats!

later when I was dating my future husband, I became sick. I remember my mom
telling him, “She was always a sickly child.”
Was I destined to a future of sickness?
Even as an adult, doctors told me I would never be able to have a child.
Four children later, again, I could see God had a plan and my faith grew
bigger than the struggle.

had moved me and my family to a ranch house in Grapevine,
been somewhat of a songwriter, I wrote a song called “You Have Healed Me”
based on Psalm 103. Soon afterward,

have freed me from sin and made me whole

“Stop! Go back to 103.
Read 103 again!” And she
did read it again….and again, and again, for what seemed like hours as the
medications they had actually given me twice, thinking I must just need more,

who would bless my life with such patience and faith.
It wasn’t until about a year later it began to occur to me that I
hadn’t needed my inhaler or any medication with the change of the seasons.
Two years, 3 years, 4, 5, 6…..
now, 7 years later, I can’t even remember my last asthma or allergy
attack! Could my mother’s prayers
have been so far reaching as to move God to heal me from these things?
any one of you sick? He should call
the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of
the Lord and the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well.
The Lord will raise him up. If
he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore,
confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be
healed. The prayer of a righteous
man is powerful and effective.”
