Jesus at the Rasnake Reunion

Aunt Martha & Uncle Neil's View
Yesterday (Saturday, 18-Jun-2011), my family and I went to the Rasnake Reunion at my aunt and uncle's house (Martha & Neil). They live on a beautiful farm spot on top of a hill in Lebanon, VA. They have a huge pool! Breathtaking views and awesome food and a great time of just getting together with family and talking. I found both volumes of "Some Descendants of John Counts of Glade Hollow" books and we looked up family names to see how we were all kin. Discovered a few mistakes in the genealogies which we corrected. My older sister (TammyC), one of my first cousins (Brett) and my middle daughter (Karahann) got out the instruments (banjo & guitars) and we all played and sang some old familiar songs as well as some of Karahann's new ones. There was a thunderstorm afterward that made us all gather in the house and on the back patio. But it quickly passed and the kids could all swim in the pool again.

Just as we were leaving, my mom (Janice) came and got me and said that Aunt Judy (mom's sister) needed me to lay hands on her because she was in pain. My mom is the oldest of 12 (5 sisters and 6 brothers), so I have tons of first and second cousins. I discovered Judy had had a tooth pulled and she had a severe case of "dry socket" (her words), and the pain was about an 8 out of 10! I asked her if I could lay hands on her. I also got my older sister (TammyC) because she believes in healing like I do.

My Big Sis (TammyC), Aunt Judy, Me & Jesus
We laid hands on my Aunt Judy's jaw and commanded pain to leave her body and for the dry socket to be healed. Immediately the pain began to go down. She indicated it immediately jumped down to about a 5 and then 4, 3 and then completely gone. She opened her eyes and said, "It is totally gone." I said, "100%?" She said, "Absolutely gone. No pain at all." She hugged our necks.

This took about 10 minutes.

Was it real? Was it psychosomatic? Well, it was real, that's for sure. The pain was really gone. Was it psychosomatic? I don't know. Was it placebo? I don't know. But you know, it was relief for Judy, and Jesus Christ was glorified.

Jesus, though not a Rasnake, showed up because He was invited. He is not ashamed of calling us His brothers and sisters. Hard to believe, I know, but so be it! :)
