It's D Day

Brian is off work today so he's in charge of carpool, and he and the kiddos are gone leaving me snuggled on the couch with an extra cup of coffee, my body bean and the morning news (something I rarely watch).

I've taken a little unintentional blog break. I sometimes feel (especially the last few weeks) that it reads a bit like a roller coaster. I feel good; I feel bad; I feel calm; I feel depressed; I'm crying through it all; I'm brave. Well, if it reads like a roller coaster, you should try to live it. ;)

The truth is that surprisingly enough I've had a good 7-10 days and have been able to mostly put thoughts of my doctor's appointment this afternoon out of my mind. Between a snow day and now a 3 day weekend, we've gotten some work done around the house, I've cooked some meals, we went bowling with a church group Sunday night, had supper with my brother, watched some football (yet again, I always choose the wrong teams). And last night my brother took the kids for a couple of hours so Brian and I headed to Cold Stone Creamery, ate a bowl of soup, and watched an Office marathon.

I don't know what this afternoon holds for me, and I'm doing my best not to speculate. But this morning we're going to run a few errands and even make a trip to Good Will (not something I ever volunteer to do). I appreciate your prayers.

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.

I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance;
therefore, I will hope in him!”
Lamentations 3:22-24

Wrapping you in prayers... read today in Jesus Calling- Strive to trust Me in more and more areas of your life. Anything that makes you anxious is a growth opportunity...Trust is like a staff you can lean on as you journey uphill... the staff will bear your weight as needed...

Good morning, I don't think I've ever commented before and I can't remember how I found you originally (somehow because of international adoption, faith, photography, & scrapbooking). Anyway, just wanted you to know you are a strong amazing lady & I'm praying for you today!! xo

Pastor Sam said...

you familiar with this verse, Melissa...it's from one of my favorite hymns (in fact, you may have introduced me to it):
"Could we with ink the oceans fill,
and were the skies of parchment made...
were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade, to write the love of God above
would drain the ocean dry!
nor could the scroll contain the wholem though stretched from sky to sky!
O love of God! how rich and pure! How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
the saints' and angels' song!

We love you sis, and are praying for you every time you cross our mind!
