My heart continues to sing praise to the Lord,
as today marks about three weeks since I wrote this post. I know that I am doing as well as I am because of your continued prayers. Friends, I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received. The comments, text, emails, and even a sweet card in the mail. God is certainly hearing and answering. How I appreciate each one of you!
I've had time to think, reflect, and be in deep, deep prayer. Oh, how I've prayed! Not only for my situation, but for those who have reached out saying they are weathering the same storm. Also those who have shown me love by their prayers and kind words to me.
I can't express what a great, compassionate man I married. He is a constant of support, love, and at times truth. Sometimes the truth hurts, but spoken in love it's meant to help us grow.
This walk is just that, a walk in faith. There is no quick fix, just a process to heal and realize that life will forever be changed. I am taking care of me. Not in selfish way. In a way that will allow me to be better at taking care of those I love the most. I am getting better day by day.
I am recognizing my limits. Realizing the things I need to do to be healthy. In this process I am finding a different kind of perfect. A perfect that isn't based on comparison or my high, sometimes unreasonable standards. A kind of perfect that is based on grace.
I'm grateful that God's mercies are new each day. No matter the day before we all get a fresh start each day. As I wake up each morning I remind myself to rejoice and be glad.
I do plan to return to blogging, please be patient as work through this season. Again, thank you all for your support and continued prayers.
