I know He has a plan and I know my measly, little mind can not comprehend it, even when I try to guess what it might me.
I believe we must believe and live by faith and not by sight.
'So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal'
2 Corinthians 4:18
A question I was asked recently " Where did God come from?"
and "what if we all are just someone's imagination" (in their head)?
or "what about life on other planets?" I was told they proved that life could be supported on Mars.
or "there are all kinds of videos on youtube explaining how we evolved."
and" man wrote the Bible and it has changed from the original writings."
All I can say is--
"for we walk by faith, not by sight"2 Corinthians 5:7
I can't answer any of the above questions, I just do not have the knowledge, I only believe. I believe He has a plan for me. I can't even attempt to guess even though I try.
There are things in my life that were allowed to happen, things that hurt me a great deal. ...but life went on.
When I was 32 I was in an auto accident and developed a serious complication that put me in intensive care for several days. The minister was called, they didn't think I'd make it. But He pulled me through it.
Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and if you are a regular reader you know all of the side effects I contracted. I was very sick, my heart was very bad, so bad that a transplant would have been in my future if the cancer was not present.
My EF was 19% (it should be 55-75%). This year is has improved to 34% and now is at 43%.
This was doctor week for me. I saw the oncologist, the cardiologist, the radiation dr, and a surgeon. One thing that was done was an Echo for my heart. I don't know who was more excited to see the report: me or the cardiologist. We were both very happy. I will be on my meds for life, but hey I am doing just great!
I feel really good, in fact what bothers me now is my knee....it has for several years....I feel just as good as I did 2 years ago. God has pulled me through another serious condition. What does He have in mind for me????
Hubby has been job hunting with no luck so far. We did purchase insurance but now we will have to meet the deductible again....it was so nice to have everything covered under his work insurance. It worked out really well that I had many of my dr appointments already scheduled for this week. When I saw my oncologist he told me that my medical port could come out. Oh no!!! There were only 2 days left in the week that I could have it done and still have it covered under our insurance. I waited a day for a phone call...none. I was at the same clinic so was stopped over at the oncologist and talked to them and the nurse made another call to the surgeons office (of course they are in different cities). Less than an hour later I received a call from the surgeons office....they could only do it that afternoon. "I'll be there", I said. I found a friend to go with me, hubby was scheduled to golf and they don't have any extras on their team (he would have taken me if no one else could), Thank God for my friends - one took me to Milwaukee the day before and a different one came with me to Green Bay yesterday. I was 'deported' yesterday (my medical port was removed).
It was a very simple procedure, done in the office. The worst part was the freezing...again, who likes to have a shot in their breast? who??? I talked steadily to the nurse to get my mind off the pressure I was feeling. The port removal went quickly and the dr explained everything thoroughly. I think it took the longest for the nurse to put pressure on the site (cautionary measure b/c of my intake of coumadin).
I really didn't need anyone to come with me (I wasn't aware of that at the time) but it was really nice to have some time to visit with Carolee, she's a busy gal.
Yesterday was a beautiful day! It was 79 in Green Bay (less than an hour away) but 59 here....such is life living by the big lake. I had planned to pull weeds yesterday afternoon but the 'deportation' had to take precedence. Today it's raining so no weed pulling.....guess there will be more days to attempt that task.
If you've stayed awake long enough to read this long post I'm going to say "Have a GREAT weekend!!!"
I don't know where the past week went.
