Long suffering~ This sometimes in life is unavoidable...sometimes when you have a chronic illness it is to be expected. Pain, frustration, tears...all apart of the gift of illness~ But along with this comes an understanding that it is not "all about me"...that there is so much in life to be appreciated when you are able to function both mentally and physically...that God will take you through those peaks and valleys! I have been away from writing for weeks now due to a blood clot in my lung and various complications from systematic lupus...but through it all the Lord has seen me through~ I have met quite a cast of characters along the way..some wonderful some very unpleasant but the Lord gave me the wherewith all to persevere no matter what....God gave me the opportunity to minister and to be ministered too~ And now He has finally brought me home to my family and for that I am truly thankful for~ Now as I continue my journey during this difficult season of my life; I have an assurance that He alone is walking with me and will never leave me or forsake me~
THE LORD IS MY ROCK, IN HIM WE HIDE,
A SHELTER IN THE TIME OF THE STORM;
SECURE WHATEVER ILL BETIDE,
A SHELTER IN THE TIME OF THE STORM.- CHARLESWORTH
TO SURVIVE THE STORMS OF LIFE,
BE ANCHORED TO THE ROCK OF AGES.
