It has been a cold rainy day in Dallas but I’m loving it. I got out of the house today. I’m adjusting to my “new” look complete with wigs and stuffing.
I have come thru the second surgery with flying colors and managed to leave with only 1 drain. It’s the simple things that make me happy these days. I appreciate a day that includes minimal pain, laughter and winning a flat screen t.v. isn’t bad either. The Lord has blessed me with lots of encouragement throughout the day. Tonight, I met another warrior in our army, she has offered to pitch in with errands or anything else I need and she lives just down the sidewalk from me. God is so good.
I realized today that I don’t have a battle plan. I originally thought that after surgery I would get back on course and return to chemo but it seems now that plans may be changing. I’m not sure what is next yet. I’m waiting for the doctors to get back to me. For the first time since my diagnosis I feel like the pause button has been pushed. Praying for continued guidance for my doctors. Patience for me to wait when I’m suppose to and move forward when I’m suppose to. Today’s verse was perfect for me and over course I had to share with all of you.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.’ The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” — Lamentations 3:22-26
