Well, hello there, faithful friends and lurkers. After much busyness, I have returned (even if briefly) to the cyberworld. So as not to stress those of you who struggle with long and verbose ramblings, I will condense the last couple of days into more of a pictorial journey.
To start things off, for those of you who don't know, the graft site from my leg became very infected, and they had to take the whole leg. (See photo at right.) I am hoping with therapy and a good prosthetic device to be as good as new in no time. I may even be able to join some special athletic teams, etc. I'm really looking forward to this new chapter in my life.
OK, JUST KIDDING. Stop before you call the prayer chain. This picture was from a belated Christmas party that my girls gave for Dixie (my assistant & right arm -- or left leg as the case may be) and me. Last night they set up a Christmas tree and gave us stockings full of gifts and signed posters with well wishes. It was so beautiful! *sniff* I would post pictures of us with the girls, but they were in pj's, and this is a holiness site. They also gave a sheriff badge to me and a deputy one to Dixie. They are so funny -- ha ha.
Sheriff -- ha ha.
Dixie & I with all the trimmings -- woo ha. The bulge in Dixie's front is her son, whom we hope will be making an appearance very soon. He is already a funny child. He loves band music. (The fact that he likes band music is not what makes him funny!)
Anyway, on to tonight. Tonight was the final meeting of my discipleship group. I love these girls. They make me laugh hard! I have really enjoyed studying the Bible with them and growing closer as a group. *Shameless plug* If you ever have a chance to disciple a group of young people in a small group setting -- take it! It will bless and change your life. *Shameless plug is over* Anyway, we ate good food (cooked by yours truly) and had a really fun last meeting.
Finally, how are you doing, you ask. (Thank you for asking.) The good days are getting better and more frequent. The bad days are still unexpected and unsettling. Overall, I am most pleased. I am using very few pain meds. (For anyone who was worried about an addiction problem, worry no longer. Another joke. Ha ha.)
In all seriousness, I am very blessed to have an amazing Heavenly Father whose grace consistently astounds me. I am humbled at His nearness and the fact that He IS -- whether we sense Him ...or not.
