Hello Friday and hello to March. Albeit, belated hellos there. I missed the turning of a new calendar page on Wednesday. Actually, I missed posting anything at all and, so, today is a bit of catch-up as I want to continue with capturing my month in one photo….something I started in January (one month later is certainly too soon to drop the ball!) This photo pretty much sums up February for me:
I hate to be redundant and, no doubt, some of you are tired of reading about my long and weary February (I apologize) but if I am going to “sum it up,” well this photo does it best. Hospital visits, more than enough meds (pain and otherwise) and a healthy dose of scripture, time in the word and prayer. Lots of prayer….my own prayer pleas as well as the prayers of so many others. Yes, there were some highlights (and answers to prayers) this past month but, if I’m honest, it will go down in the history books, for me, as the month of hurting.
Not exactly the most encouraging post but it does remind me how far I have come…..and, in the future, when hard days come again (and they no doubt will), I can remember after the Februarys of life, March will come. A fresh day will come. A new month does come. God is faithful and joy DOES come in the morning. It just might take a few mornings:)
I am determined to look for the beauty – and the joy – in this new month ahead. I have new (health) challenges in the next few weeks but will not mention them much here on the blog. I am determined it will not be my focus and I look forward to getting back to “more normal” posts:) Nevertheless, the joy is there to be found. Let me know what you are looking forward to in this fresh new month! Here’s to enjoying a few unanticipated blessings!!
