Dear Martha,
I’m so glad you are feeling better. For the past year my husband and I have been going through a very rough time with our daughter. We have two grandsons and we do our very best to keep their lives together. I count on and look so forward to Tuesdays and Fridays; it is your inspiration that keeps me together. I will keep you in my prayers.
Thank you so much and take care,
Mary

Dear Martha,
It was a relief to see and hear you…I was also experiencing the PIP..but did not have a name or description for it until now (cold/allergies and completely rundown and exhausted.) The best medicine was to take care of myself…something I am learning to do after decades and which you validated in your video. Thank you….
I am sorry for your losses and will continue to pray for you and your family.
God’s peace and blessings to you and yours always,
Claudia

Along with those already signed in, I am glad you are feeling better. Losing someone we love or have known for a long time does put us in the doldrums. Hang in there and I look foward to seeing a new story from you next week. It is amazing how the love of Jesus and the knowledge of His Resurrection can lift us up! Without Him we are nothing, with Him we can be everything He desires us to be! Have a Great Weekend!

Martha,
Good to see your smiling face back again. I’m so sorry for your loss — I’ve experienced a bit of that during my lifetime also, the last, which was my younger brother 3 years ago. I pray God’s comfort for your hurting heart and continued restoration in your health. It’s good you are taking the time to heal and be restored.
Always look forward to your videos and the life lessons you share with us. Thanks for that.
We love you!

Good to see you again, Martha. Again, your words seemed to be just what my head and heart needed to hear. Continue to take care of yourself!! Good Friday was the first anniversary of the passing of my since-fourth-grade best friend, and because I miss her everyday, I
thought it’d be another day of the same. Unfortunately, when I went to Mass, I lost it! I had a melt-down the whole week-end. I DID get up and go to Easter Sunrise at a park on the water, something we’ve done for 25 years or more now. The peace I felt there helped. I understand so well about losing friends. I’m getting to that age. Lost two other close ones in last year. I must remember your words that “Every day is a resurrection!”
God bless you!
Pamper yourself.

Hi Martha
I am so glad that you are feeling much better,I guess in life we have to take the good
with the bad, and sometimes are little down,s get to us and make us really down!!!!
You are a great insight for alot of people. You make us all feel good about life.
I lost a great friend this year too, and just afew weeks ago I lost my little dog.
But we have to trust in the Lord, only he knows what is best for us.
Take Really Good Care Of You God Bless [Angie]

I can relate, still dealing with the “pip” as you called it. I pray for you and myself. Easter was wonderful for me and my family but other things seem to try to bring me down and again I have to rise above it all. Hope you have, as I am trying to do myself.

Dear Martha,
I didn’t know what happened to you, I missed your friend’s email about you being sick. I almost got sick thinking you gave up on your “touch of encouragement”. Thank God you are back.
God Bless and stay well,
Joanne

I missed the notice that you were ill somewhere along the line too and wondered what had happened. Glad to hear you are doing better.
If we don’t stop and take care of ourselves sometimes and ‘fill’ back up w/God’s peace we have nothing to give out to others anyway.
Hope you continue on the road to health.

You are amazing! In that last moment of this very short piece, you have given me an insight into something that has been perplexing me for quite awhile! The Lord’s “healing power”… and all I have to do is ask for it – and that is exactly what I will do! Thank you so much, Martha, for all of your inspiring videos, full of hope and positive energies. And I’m very glad that you are on the road to recovery!

Dear Martha, I have prayed for a way to get intouch with you, but had no idea how, then I just happend to open up this e-mail tonight and you were there, God does answer prayers.I have watched Touched by an Angel faithfully for many year’s. I have to tell you that one night I was so depressed I almost took my life, I prayed to God and I dont even rember what I prayed for but the next thing I rembered I was watching Touched by an Angel, and I felt the love of my Father fill my heart, and I did’nt feel alone anymore. I can’t tell you how many times that show has saved me from so many thing’s, and not just me, but alot of people I know and they watched the show every night like I did, some of the people I know can’t read and they loved watching that show being fed spiritually. I know you said we could get tapes, if you could tell me where I would like to buy them. I did not know you were sick, I will be on my knees to night to our Lord in prayer for you and your family. I want to thank you for all the year’s you have given to me and my friend’s by giving us TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL!!!!!! You are an Angel that walks on this earth Martha, because of the work for Christ that you do. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!JEANNIE 4/21/2010

Asking for Help
When we find ourselves too emotionally and physically exhausted to ask for help, Martha Williamson believes if we just stand still and call out to God with faith, confidence and patience He will be there to answer our prayer.
