Ok God, enough asthma!

Starting week #4 with this asthma thing. I can't remember ever having asthma last this long before. It's the coughing that's the hardest to deal with...just doesn't stop. Thought it was getting better and yesterday I feel like I'm back at square one. Is there no end? Ok God, I know there was a plan for me to return to Ohio, but keeping me indoors with asthma for weeks on end surely wasn't part of that plan...was it??? Do you have days like that where you question God on why something is happening to you? I wrote a devotion when I was in lay leadership training some years ago asking that very question. We must anticipate that God will answer our prayers and needs, but He answers in His time, not ours. I love the Psalms. My favorite is Psalms 116. Verses 1-2 read, "I love the Lord for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live." (NIV) I'm calling, God...enough asthma!

Meanwhile, I'm still sewing up a storm between coughing spells. Made a couple more Abbey Bags. They are so cute and easy to make. And, they make great gifts for your quilting/sewing buddies. My cleaning lady fell in love with the coaster sets I had made. So after she left, I made another set of coasters to give her for Christmas. I think I'll make another set to give to my massage therapist. I've noticed that you can't make just 1 Abbey Bag or coaster set. It's sorta like you can't eat just 1 Lay's potato chip!

Happy quilting or sewing today! God's blessings too!
