Yes, I'm still kickin'...........and blessed and highly favored ! So many around me are suffering from this banner pollen Spring ! But not me........Praise the LORD, I haven't even had to look up my box of allergy medication. I never had to take more than a third of a tablet when I got the runny nose, but I don't even have that yet this year !
I did have to drive to Nashville again on Monday......doctor's appointment at 8:30a.m. Hubster insisted that we needed to leave here 3 hours early, when Google Maps said that it was a 2 hour drive at the most. Well, we got there at 7:30, but they went ahead and got us checked in and before you know it the doctor had done his thing and we were out by 9:30. But he wanted me to get an MRI, and the only way to avoid having to drive up there another day was to wait around for a 2:15 appointment at the imaging place. So, after an hour and a half session in that fun machine.......BANG, BANG, BANG-----KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK.....well, we found ourselves traveling down the interstate during rush-hour traffic leaving Nashville. I wanted to drive the 2-lane home, but hubs wanted to go through the town with the KFC, so he won. But almost didn't. Praise the LORD for his accompanying angels. When I accidentally cut off a little black car while changing lanes, he then SQUEEZED and zoomed past between our jeep and the car in the lane to my left ! I don't know how I didn't receive a little memento of his presence..........well, actually I do, and it involves another very special PRESENCE !
Phew ! I don't want to do that again !
I know, I know......I'll have to go back eventually, but I'll face that THEN !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
