Update (With a little evangelism)



   Today Dr. B was at my room at 5:30.  She caught me making a note in my phone and wanted to know what I was doing awake.  I told her when I remember things and don't right them down I forget. She just smiled.  She also told me that I had passed a huge hurdle.  She said that since I made it to the 5th day without major complications, I was in the 80 percent for survival. I was already planning on that. (There I go planning again!). Before she left, I asked if I could pray with her.  She said she'd love that and reached for my hands. (I think she's done this before.) After the prayer, she smiled. God continues to work in so many ways.
   I had a good visit with my sis today.  She has been doing a great job coordinating things and taking care of things for me.  Some great friends finished working upstairs  in my house to get it ready to sell.  My bro-in-law and nephews came for a visit. My neighbors and friends from around the corner stopped by. A sweet lady from my Sunday school class came to visit and stayed to help get up and about.  Had a great time chatting with her.  Also had a call from my PC Dr. and PA...only they were here in "friend" mode instead of  "doctor" mode.
   Right now I'm sitting in my bed, finishing up this post and have another I started earlier.  I'm looking out at the skyline, all the lights thinking about all of the people and all of their stories.  I know there are people living on the streets I see from my window.  I'm wondering how they are making it through these hot days.  There are people who work in the buildings all lit up tonight who will return to work tomorrow with a new set of worries for the day.  I truly don't know how anyone can make it without God.  Some people say that if you believe in God, you're using a crutch.  I'm okay with that.  If you're sick you go to the doctor, right? Hopefully, you trust your doctor and follow his advice to get well.  Then why, when you're sick in spirit, or life, or...fill in the blank...do you not go to the Great Physician, read His prescription (the Bible...Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), and follow His care plan?
   I really hope that tomorrow will also be a good day.  Even if it's not, I know I have a good God that will be with me whatever the day brings!

  1. Amen Edwina! You just go right ahead and make those plans - because God has done that also!
    Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Praying for strength for the journey...

    Hugs - Jeanne
