Tonight I am so thankful to be here. In my home with my family close by. Today we were able to all 5 make it to church. We stayed for Sunday School and "big" church! It was wonderful to be in the house of God today. Our choir was filled to the brim and I honestly thought that they would blow the roof off of the building as they sang today. Wow!! What a blessing. "Thou, O Lord"
King James Version (KJV)
1Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
2Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
4I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
5I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
Our pastor today challenged us to learn through life's difficulties. Clearly, this was one sermon that I could benefit from. As I listened to him speak, these words kept ringing in my ears "I am Committed to the Blessing of my Crisis." Everyday I realize a new blessing as we begin to lift our heads out of the murky waters. I look forward to watching His mercies unfold, as I wake each day and wait patiently for the blessings that will come from Lucy's illness.
Tomorrow morning we start a very busy week. Honestly, I am very thankful for a packed calendar. Friday is Lucy's scan day and I when I allow myself to stop and think about it I start getting sick. So, I am going to keep myself really busy this week. And when they doesn't work, I'll just spend a lot of time praying! Lucy begins her work with her new tutor in the morning. I am happy to have found Cissy and I know she is going to be the perfect fit. Thank you to ALL the many people who emailed me, texted me or messaged me about this situation. I honestly did what I said I was going to do. Which was nothing. When Cissy called, it just felt right. I am so humbled that so many of you were willing to help.
After tutoring we head to St. Jude for a weight check and electrolyte check. The rest of the week will consist of school, PT, OT, church, dentist visit for both girls, tumbling and most importantly.....a visit from Erik's parents. The girls are already counting down the days!
