"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable."
I can not go to sleep tonight without writing another blog to say THANK YOU!!!!
I spent the day yesterday in a deep valley. I awoke this morning to the same. My heart was so heavy. The journey seemed almost more than I could continue to bear. I felt so worn down. My tears came easily. I don't like to cry, crying seems as if I'm feeling sorry for myself. I have been given so many blessings in this life that spending even a moment having a pity party and crying is so selfish. I had prayed and searched the scriptures and came asking for you to pray on my behalf. Once again our God was faithful. I know when I ask, through this blog, for people to help me pray, so many are so faithful to take my name to the Lord. I can not begin to tell you the difference your prayers have made in my life. I am soooo unworthy of such friendship. I am so humbled by such friendship. Once again God's loving kindness and grace has shown through in my life today. What began as a dark valley became a wonderful sunny day for me. God's grace has been sufficient.
Wendell, Punky and I left for the trip to Knoxville for my radiation treatment. We picked Kiah up from school a little early. I was in and out of the treatment in less than 10 minutes. We then went to dinner at TGI Friday's. I didn't think I could handle there "soup of the day", so instead, I had ice cream for dinner:) We then went to Krispy Kreme and on to UT Hospital to visit with three different families. After leaving the hospital we stopped at Sam's Club to pick up some things for the store and then headed for home. All of this probably sounds like a pretty boring evening, but to me it was a wonderful blessing!!! I felt well and had the strength to function. It was so nice to once again be out with my family. We were able to talk and just enjoy being together. I was able to stay awake and felt better than I have felt in days, mentally and physically!!! Just feeling well enough to enjoy being out with Wendell and the girls is something I haven't felt in a long, long time. I know the Lord answered our prayers and allowed me to have such a wonderful, simple evening!!!
Thank you for your prayers, uplifting comments, phone calls and emails. I still cannot understand how people face the "valleys" in this life without God, family, and wonderful Christian friends.
