Wow! So, I’ve been out awhile.
And…well…this is awkward.
Please forgive me for my absence. I have a really, really good excuse.
I wish I could say that I’ve been busy hammering out a new bible study or something that might be equally impressive. However, I have been at home recuperating from some unexpected surgery.
Things are all good now. The recovery process just took painfully longer than I expected. To be honest, the whole experience has been rather traumatizing on many levels and has left me somewhat speechless. (Who ever thought I’d say those words? Not me.)
While I’ve had a couple of crushing disappointments and some frightening realizations over the past three weeks, I have also experienced tremendous blessings that shined light on how awesome God is and how He takes care of us: moment by moment; step by step.
I won’t go into all those things now, but I do hope that as I process them, you will allow me to share some with you. For now, I simply wanted to reach out, say “HI” and remind you that God loves you and takes care of you in ways you never know or can comprehend.
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. (Matthew 6:31-32)
So glad you’re feeling better. I will read this to my sweet daughter as she recovers from her surgery (when this current dose of pain meds wears off-she’s currently.snoring away in la-la land).
Your post reminded me of a post I read by my friend Rebekah who ran the half marathon a few weeks ago. She was encouraged by a stranger, and then her stranger got to see her post. Check out the comments section too.
