Okay Quick Post

I'm giving myself 3 minutes to write. I really need to go to bed. Too many nites of staying up in a row sewing. I just finished some super cute soft baby shoes for Kili. Going to make some more and matchy stuff tomorrow. I will post pics tomorrow.

The LORD has a funny way of preparing our hearts. There were some things that I have just been really needing to give up to HIM, and lo and behold, when I did the next day, I kid you not, I was faced with the opportunies to be gracious. My GOD knows what I need. HE humbles me in preparation to do HIS work with a willing heart and pure motives. What a Mighty GOD I serve!

Bedtime for girls!

I'm am sooooo exhausted.

I feel like I'm getting the flu or something. Ick... On top of all this other goodness I've been dealing with. Anyways Chan's grandparents are coming up here today and the house is in TOTAL disaray. Due to the fact 1) I had college all day yesterday. And the house is always a disaster the days after I have college all day. 2) I have been feeling so terrible so I've been doing minimal cleaning. 3) With the time I can do a little something, I have spent the majority of it working on getting stuff ready to consign because we have a TON!

So I need to eat something and then clean for the rest of the day!!

Great News!!!

My pancreatic attack has seemed to end. Now hopefully it never visits again. Seemed to be viral. Still more tests to run. We really don't know how bad it actually got because I didn't go to the doctor until very late. Hopefully, all tests will come back with better than expected results.

We will pray God heals my beta cells, so no diabetes!!

Thank you HEALER!

I'm Backkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

Well, we all just back a little while ago from my abdominal ultrasound. No results for a few days. The tech I had was hard to read. You know how they really aren't allowed to say anything about what they saw while doing the test, but it has been in my experience that usually they have told me, "I'm not supposed to say anything, but ... everything looked fine." or the general demeanor is positive. Not so much with her, but again she might just have a good poker face. Nothing to worry over yet.

The blood work I had done yesterday should be looked at by Dr. today. Looking at Lipase, Amylase, and Glucose levels. Hopefully all will be good.

I really am not feeling so hot, especially after being pushed on pretty good for the ultrasound.

Well I really need to go work on getting together some consignment sale goods-So I am off.

My Theme Song Lately

Matt Redman - You Never Let Go
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn backI know You are near
And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?
Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me
And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We’ll live to know
You here on the earth
Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You
I sang this song all the time when I when I was pregnant Kili. It gave me so much comfort knowing HE would never let go of me. HE was ALWAYS protecting me and my baby.
Lately, I have been singing this song more and more. It is so amazing how when Kili hears the song and me singing how calmed she is by it. It's reminding me no matter how hard the times are we are going through HE is there. God is SO GOOD. All the time.
I love you LORD JESUS

Okay so I'm giving this another shot

I really need an outlet right now. So much is going on. In the past I have blogged, and since I am at a new place in life I will begin a new blog and recommit.
Lately, Chandler and I have both talked about how we feel like we are just making it. Like scraping by by the skin of our teeth in so many areas of life: spiritually, financially, emotionally, and recreationally. We are not getting to enjoy life like we want too. And that IS going to change. There may not be anything I can do about the financials. But I can CHOOSE to be joyful, and I AM. I sound really happy, huh. Being joyful isn't so much about being happy. I am not happy about rediculous hospital bills, self attacking beta cells, and unnecessary family drama. But I am joyful for medical facilities, the human body, and family members that God has provided for me. I am joyful for HE has given me life! This is a choice that I have needed to make and will need to remind myself of. So there it is-out in the open-I am joyful!
