I wrote to my audience, took off my housecoat, and went on to bed. Ed was asleep already. He had an appointment for 8:30 A. M. at the church. With such a busy day, and getting in later for supper, he was dog tired. We put chairs on the couch, and told Isaac, to go to bed earlier.
“We have a meal to plan, and you will need to help us with it. ” His Dad told him.
Isaac is in charge of preparing the meat for Wednesday’s service. We are having the Service of the Cross, and it is unusual. It ends with a candle lighting service, and when I do the overheads, I am the last to turn off the light I have on the overhead. It makes quite a scene with the lit, tiny candles. Isaac also handles the music, which is basically his guitar, and the over head person, me.
In the meantime I have had blood taken for two different times this month. I had my yearly exam with the heart doctor, and he ordered a scan of my heart with contrast. This was done one week, and I had barely put my shoes back on, and it was time to look forward to the eye exam, and the shot that I get. This went well, but the tests were detailed, and time waiting for the treatment was long, and awesome.
I say awesome, because I pray for boldness, and help with the shot. I was given it, and I felt the last part of the shot this time. I know the number was added, but it left, and he was still giving the shot. Ouch. I was hurting when Ed came to get me, and I didn’t have to wait as long. I also had a vein problem. The good person who usually gives good shots, took blood, but the vein gave way on him. I had a place that swelled up on my hand that was over the swollen, broken, blood vessel. I have not ever had this happen. They gave me a sack with cold in it that I could take home. I switched from hand to eye when I got home, and at one point I lifted my hand to my eye, and felt cold on both of them.
This morning my eye was fine. I have bent to get the clothes out of the dryer, and now my right side is aching. Other wise, my eye is still not hurting, and I am only hungry. I usually have soup for lunch. It is nice to go to a restaurant with Ed, but if I have enough soup at home, I open a can and indulge. I sat in the bigger chair, last night with my eye giving me fits, and my arm requiring some caution, or it would hurt. I tell you, this morning, to arise with no pain was awesome! Thank you for praying for me, audience. I know when people pray I can tell it. Maybe you prayed for me while I was with the eye doctor. I had such trouble that I wondered if anyone prayed for me while I was there. At any rate, I am back to perky self, and thank you for prayers. I needed them yesterday, and today as well.
Have you noticed that the sun is brightly shining outside? It is hard to tell when you are asleep still. Wake up, and smell the roses. See the Jonquils. God is alive, well, and ready to answer when you call to Him out of humility.
