Hangin in there

My eyes are back to normal. Thank the Lord! So glad that I can see without my vision being blurry. Thank you for your prayers.

The bright spot in my weekend was getting out with my sisters and mom. We were supposed to go to Atlanta this weekend for a girls getaway, but that came to a screeching halt when I had to go in for my D&C. I felt so bad. We had been planning this trip for awhile. We decided to make the best of it and still hang out. My sisters and mom went shopping in the morning and then had lunch. I was too tired to be out all day so I met them for dinner at Cheesecake Factory and then we came back to my house and watched a movie. Well not really a movie. It was Celine Dion's Documentary she did of her Taking Chances World Tour. We are all huge fans and it did not disappoint. It was great! If you are a Celine fan I highly recommend it.

It was good to get my mind off of things and be with my family. I'm still not feeling great, but I tried to make the best of it. It's nice to laugh for a change and not cry. There is such comfort in being with my sisters and my mom.

I will be heading back to the dr tomorrow to see if they can run another test. I will let you know what that is after the fact, but it's just something else since the surgery that I am concerned about. I have to be honest that this whole ordeal has caused me a lot of stress and worry. Worry is something I have dealt with since I was little. It used to bring on anxiety attacks. Not something I am proud of that's for sure. I am really trying to give my worries and fears over to the Lord and it's hard. Every time a fear comes into my mind, I stop and pray. I ask the Lord to take the fear and replace it with peace. I have probably had to do that 100 times today and that's no joke. My mind can just run wild with all the things that could be wrong. I hate it. It's not where the Lord wants me to be.

Today I opened up my "Jesus Calling" devotional and I couldn't believe what it said. I'm telling you if you don't have this devotional, please get it. You can buy it online to be delivered to your email each day. The cost for the whole year is $2. What a steal! You can get it here.

Here are just some excerpts from today's reading that hit home with me.

"There is a mighty battle going on for control of your mind. Heaven and earth intersect in your mind; the tugs of both spheres influence your thinking."

"As you concentrate on Me, My Spirit fills your mind with Life and Peace."

"Refuse to worry, because this form of worldliness will weigh you down and block awareness of My presence. Stay alert, recognizing the battle being waged against your mind."

Pretty, cool right? Thank you Lord for your perfect timing. Thank you that you hear the cries of your children and you meet us where we are.

So glad you are feeling better. The Cheesecake Factory is one of my absolute favorite restaurants! Which one in ATL did you go to? I grew up going to the one downtown. Sigh. I miss ATL. Thanks so much for sharing the quotes-just what I need tonight. Praying for you Krista. Praying for your heart to heal, while cherishing Jonathan and allowing the Lord to draw near to you.

Thanks Katy. We actually didn't get to go to ATL. We stayed in Nashville and ate at one here. Their Chinese Chicken Salad is my favorite. Thank you for stopping by and for your prayers. So glad those quotes touched you. It's such an amazing devotional.

I am so glad your feeling better, I am so sorry your going through all this. I don't know if you've read the One year book of Hope or not but it was one of those books that is helping me. I've been through several that haven't and was so happy to get this book from another mom friend of mine. I can't wait to get Jesus Calling it sounds like an awesome book. take care and know alot of people are praying for you :)

I'm a new follower, and I just wanted to say that I think you're so strong and so brave. You inspire me to put more faith in the Lord. I too have struggled with anxiety. I've always found it difficult to 'let go and let God' ... but I'm working on it. I'm going to check out your link for the devotional you mentioned.

Wish I could offer more, but know that you have somebody new out there praying for you and your family. Take care.
