Prayer Requests and Disney MGM Parade

I ask all of my readers for prayers for the following people. There are many in need of prayer and we prayer warriors need to lift these people up to the Lord.

Deena at Can I Be Pretty in Pink. Deena is battling breast cancer and found out yesterday that she is in Stage 4 Invasive Lobular Carcinoma. Yesterday Deena had devastating news. This is what she says on her post:

I couldn't play chemo..as my white blood count is too high
somewhere there is an infection..so antibiotics
this week and back NeXT Friday..2/1 at 8:15 AM for
blood work and try it again.


The cancer is in stage 4..in more lymphs thru my body
my adrenal glands, another 1 cm node to the left of my aorta,
in my 9th rib..rib is breaking down..in my spine and
numerous areas of my skeleton (bones)

God's Word says that if any two shall agree in Jesus' name, it will be done for you. Let's all join in prayer and agree that Deena will find the strength for her journey and that God's Will be done.

Denise at Shortybear's Place Denise has diabetes. She is having much pain in her eyes as well as other health problems.

Mary at Isabella's Closet Mary needs prayer for both her health and her financial situation.

Denise at Samaritan Women Denise needs prayer for back problem and for her son, Chris.

Anna at Nature Trail. Anna is recovering from an ankle injury.

My mother was getting better but has once again relapsed. I'm not sure why this keeps occuring, but the doctors can't find out what's going on. She is to see a lung specialist on February 8th.

Michelle, my daughter, who believes the cyst on her ovary is growing. I'm not sure if this is a bad thing, but ask that you pray for her. She has been in more pain in the last week or so.

Please lift these women up in prayer. They all need a healing touch from our Father.

Now for a little fun. I'm going to take you along with me to Disney's MGM Studios. We visited there on January 3rd while on vacation.

When we arrived at the Park, we parked in Film. Jordan was tickled to death, as Goofy was on the sign. His favorite Disney character is Pluto, but Goofy runs a close second. He wanted me to take a photo.



When we got off the tram, the gates loomed in the distance. It has been years since hubby and I visited MGM.
Each Disney Park has a Christmas tree near the entrance. This is the one at MGM.
When we got in the gates and looked to the right, we saw the scene below. It was lovely.

We were only there a few minutes when Disney employees began pushing the crowd back for the MGM parade to start. Below is a photo of a woman who was near the head of the parade. She and I interacted and had a lot of fun. The boys thought I was being silly and I was. After all, what is life if you can't act silly once in a while. This woman was awesome.
While watching the parade we saw Chip & Dale. I can never remember which is which, but I do believe Dale has a black nose and Chip a red nose. The one with the black nose was my favorite when I was a child.
We could see a lot of vintage cars in the distance and then along came Milan.

Dopey is always a lot of fun and I got a great shot of him. He was interacting with the little kids very near to us.
A great contrast of good and evil. All of Disney's villians paraded by. This is Darth Vader. There were other villians but I couldn't get a decent photo. As they approached, they seemed to look to the opposite side of the street. I have a photo of Hook's back, but decided not to post it.
If you remember the post about the squeaking penguin stuffed toy from the Newport Aquarium, you will know why these penguins below were a hit with the boys. Jordan was ecstatic. LOL Who can blame him? They were very cute.
And who wouldn't want to see Buzz, Woody and all the gang from Toy Story? The boys are a little old for them, or they think they are. We all loved the vintage cars though.

And then who should come along but Ariel, a Disney Princess. Of course the boys are at the age when they think Disney Princesses are gross, but they really did enjoy seeing all of them. They just won't admit it. LOL
And Jordan's favorite Disney character - none other than Pluto himself. The crowd had a lot of fun interacting with him.

And what boy wouldn't love Pinnochio? He came right up to us. The boys enjoyed seeing him.
And of course no Disney Parade would be complete without Snow White. The evil stepmother was also in the parade.

And finally, the stars of the parade. Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Don't you love that vintage car?
Here is another shot of Mickey and Minnie. And Brandon's favorite Disney character, Donald Duck was in the car with him. Believe it or not, Goofy was driving.

I hope you have enjoyed the Disney MGM Studios Parade. I will post more about this day of our vacation in a few days.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe and warm. ~Blessings, Mary~

  3. Oh Mary I absolutely LOVE the MGM too. I have a photo of myself somewhere...I'm not sure if it was Goofy or Pluto now that I think of it....will have to search for it. I love the MGM stuff [oops I just said that! A senior moment] ---anyway the only souvenir I bought there was a t shirt of Rhett and Scarlett. LOLOLOL

    What a great venture you've sent us through! I loved it.

    And good thoughts for all the ladies. I had a cyst just behind my ovary, and had it removed by a total hysterectomy....and it was benign....I was told that with the extreme pain, not to worry. Cancer most always doesn't cause pain....that you hardly realize you have it. So, I'm very confident that she'll be dandy in no time!!!!

    It was a pleasure as always.

  4. Mary, God bless you darling for always thinking about others!
    My heart goes out to Deena & her family, shes in my thoughts and paryers. I'm blessed to call you both my friends. I will also be keeping these others in my prayers.
    Thank you!
    Hugs & much love ~Mary~

  5. Anni,

    Thank you for your kind words. I am confident that Michelle will be fine once she has the hysterectomy.

    Thanks for the thoughts for all the ladies. It seems that many have health issues right now.

    MGM was a hoot! The boys loved it and though we didn't see everything, they enjoyed what they saw. They are at the age where they didn't want photos with the characters.

    I'm glad you enjoyed my tour of MGM. I have more photos to post of this day later.

    Blessings for a great weekend.
    Mary

  9. Tammy,

    I know you will lift Deena and the other ladies up in prayer. Thank you so much.

    Brandon isn't much for parades, but he did enjoy this one. He loves vintage cars and there were a lot of them in the parade.

    I'm glad you enjoyed watching my cyber MGM parade. It's nice to know that I lifted your spirits.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  10. Judy,

    Thanks for the prayers for the ladies mentioned and of course for the special one for Deena. It's much appreciated.

    Disney is so FUN! We did have a good time at all the parks. Brandon liked Epcot, MGM and Sea World. Jordan liked them all, but I think his favorite was Animal Kingdom. It is awesome and so is Sea World.

    Thanks for dropping by.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  13. Mary, I will lift up those you have mentioned in prayer. That is such a ministry for you to do this!

    My girls are so excited about their first trip to Disneyland this spring, so seeing your photos was fun for them when they wandered in just now! :)

    Thank you for the prayers. These ladies all need to be lifted up before God.

    Your girls will love Disney. Seeing it through their eyes will be a wonderful experience for you. I can hardly wait to see your photos.

    Deena is a wonderful person and I know the struggle she is going through. Thank you for praying for her.

    I hope you daughter has a wonderful time. If she is going to Disney World in August, tell her to be prepared for lots of hot weather.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  26. Peggy,

    I will indeed pray for Patricia and the baby. My niece went through a high risk pregnancy last year and we were so relieved when Griffyn was born. Now she is pregnant with another - they will be just a little over a year apart. Another high risk pregnancy.

    Thank you for praying for all those on my list. Your prayers are very much appreciated.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  28. Good Evening Mary,
    I'm late in visiting tonight. I didn't post today because it was another busy Saturday. Next Saturday looks to be busy as well. I have been praying for Deena and both Denise's. I have also been praying for your Mother and your Daughter, Michelle. We all do need to remember them in our prayers. The GREAT PHYSICIAN is in control. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of the MGM. We never saw that when we were there. Or at least I don't remember seeing it. LOL. "THANK YOU" for sharing some beautiful pictures with us and taking us with you on another journey of your vacation. When were there, we did see alot of the Disney Characters. Some of them weren't around yet when we were there. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  29. Karen,

    Thank you for your prayers. They're very much appreciated.

    Disney is a lot of fun. MGM is one of the newer parks. I can't remember when it was opened, but it wasn't there the first time that I went.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the MGM parade. It's always nice to know that people enjoy my photos.

    Love and blessings,
    Mary

  32. Denise,

    You are most deserving and in need of the prayers, just as the other ladies. Inherniated discs are nothing to fool around with. Thank you for your prayers for everyone and I will also pray for Connie.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the photos of MGM. It is on the lighter side and I hope they brightened your day.

    Blessings and love,
    Mary

    Yes, I will keep all these wonderful women in my thoughts and prayers.

    I loved the photos of the parade! You did a great job. My favorite of the characters would be Woody and the gang. I must have watched that movie a dozen times with Zach when he was little. I loved it!

    Hugs,
