Blessed Ordinary Days
Gorman and I are enjoying these cool and sunny days; just hanging out together, running errands and, as always, thanking God for every day he gives us. Last week we walked out on the Fairhope Pier, overlooking Mobile Bay. Right now Fairhope is filled with tulips and daffodils in all the beds along the streets.
Next we have a trip to Santa Monica to visit our California children and then Gorman’s MRI is scheduled for Mon., Feb. 23. He had been having some headaches, which is frightening but we think they were sinus and they have subsided.
We are so focused on Gorman’s brain but it occurs to me that my brain is something of a problem also. I have to work at not letting myself anticipate the worst and get bogged down in despair, dwelling on all the “what ifs”. Here’s what I read recently in Jesus Calling, my daily devotional: “Follow me one step at a time….you see huge mountains looming, and you start wondering how you’re going to scale those heights. Meanwhile, because you’re not looking where you’re going, you stumble on the easy path where I’m leading you now….But you don’t know what will happen today, much less tomorrow . Our path may take an abrupt turn, leading you away from those mountains. There may be an easier way up the mountains than is visible from this distance. If I do lead you up the cliffs, I will equip you thoroughly for the strenuous climb……walk by faith, not by sight.” Such truth and such comforting words. Then I climb out of despair until the next time.
Thanks to each and every one of you for your prayers in advance. My next post will probably be the MRI results
