God is good ... no - He is great and awesome! The storms rage all around us, we feel very tossed about. Our bodies are broken and bruised. But no matter what - God is God.
One of the greatest lessons I have learned? That God is God - and I am not. Took a lot of the weight of life and living off my shoulders just to really realize that!
I am learning to call on Jesus more and more - and quicker!
There is SO MUCH to research, to read, to learn, to remember in all this with the dialysis!!! OMW!!!
There are times that we get so overwhelmed it is hard to breathe. Hard to focus. Those are the times that God gently reminds us that this is not all about us. This is about giving Him praise and worship, walking with Him in thanksgiving.
We told the dialysis doctor, Dr. Greenwell, that we are committed to all this - not only for Rick's health and our life ... but also for the life and health of our children and grandchildren.
Dear God! Save our children and grandchildren from such a fate as this!!! May they learn from us in this. May we be a source of strength and grace to them - no matter what they face in this life.
Oh my! How much I love and adore our grandkids :-)!!! Just to hear their voices over the phone ... to see their faces ... to spend time with them ... to enjoy their joy and their passions!!!
It is hard to believe that our "baby" will be 8 years old next week! Happy Birthday Miss Kyla Rose!!! I love you so much!!!
Well, guess it is time to get up from here and make coffee! Past time!!!
We are working on the house today. Trying to get it cleaned and set up for dialysis. We have to do a little at a time. I'm still not to be lifting much, and resting more. Rick has one good arm ... and healing from the catheter surgery. May be "interesting" today!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
