Road Trip

I have been on a little trip.  It's not any place I would recommend to go.  I had no plans of going there but I went there none the less.

Since I wrote on this little blog last, my life went topsy turvey.   My husband lost his job suddenly.  As in....SUDDENLY.  Then, I had my mammogram.  It came back with a suspicious spot that needed more testing.  They brought up the "C" word.  Then, a few days later,  something in my blood work came back bad.  More testing.  I wish I could say that my faith in Christ was unwavering....no asking why is this happening to me.    I wish I could say that I was joyful in my circumstances.  I wish I could say that I did not worry about tomorrow.  But I can't.  Was I weak????  I did not see light for a few weeks, only darkness.  And it scared me.

But this is what I learned.  God was still with me in the dark times.  God was listening to my cries for help.  God was right beside me.  God had a plan for my life.  God was in control.   And mostly, God's ways are good.

The end of this story is this.  My husband did get another job.  He started this week.  My second mammogram and testing revealed that the "suspicious spot" was not there any more.  And, they have medication for what they found from my blood work.  Praise the Lord.......I see light!!  :)

I also know this.  I have the most precious group of people who were praying for me.  Some, I have never meet or might possibly ever meet in this lifetime.  How can I ever begin to thank all of them?  My heart overflows.  This is the month for gratitude.  And I am so grateful.   xoxoxox


2 Corinthians 12:8-10.......For when I am weak, then I am strong.
