OK God, What are you trying to tell me?
Back to square one with this asthma thing and now my ankles are swollen again to the point that I can't get shoes on. At least today I was able to get the compression stockings on. Yesterday I kept falling asleep either at the computer or sewing machine so finally gave up and took a nap. When I woke up I thought I'd slept all afternoon....only one hour! Oh Lord, please let me sleep on that train for the 3 days, 2 nights. My body cannot handle much more. I know Your plan is much better than mine, but please give me a clue. I'm running out of energy, oxygen, breath.....
I love you, Lord Jesus. My favorite Psalm is 116....verses1-2: "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." He hears my cries for mercy frequently and I have to trust that God will hear my cry again. But I have to remember that he will answer my cry in His time, not mine.
Thank you God for reminding me that I need to talk things over with you and get everything into perspective. I feel better now and know that healing will come in Your time, not mine. You know what plans you have for me and I need to put complete trust in You. Praising You this afternoon and praying in your name, Amen.
WOW! That feels so much better!! I think now I can either go finish sewing the binding to Uncle Skip's quilt or get the table runner going that I'm making for one of my best friends (3rd time is a charm!). Then I think I'm done with presents for the Christmas party this Saturday. I can then move onto other projects that aren't so urgent. I still have to alter my gown for the Renaissance Faire, but it turns out the alterations won't be as extensive as I first thought. Yipee!!!!!
17 days and counting till I leave for Arizona! Once I get into some dry weather I know I will begin to feel better. Last evening I received a call from a friend who moved from the Chicago area to Shreveport, LA. She retired! No wonder I hadn't heard from her for a while. On my way home from AZ in the spring I just may stop off and spend a few days visiting with Barbara and her new hubby. Barbara has inherited some sisters and they are all quilters! My kind of stopover!!
Have a blessed day!
