Life IS good dear!
It really really is.
I've got a confession.
I'll share this card and the challenges and then I'll fess up at the end of the post for whoever cares to read on. ;)
Don't feel bad if you don't...life is CRAZY BUSY~totally understand guys.

My word, the verse from Word Art Wednesday this week couldn't be more timely...
1 Chronicles 16:11
ok I HAVE to open up now...here we go for whoever cares to read on...
I've been "not well" since Feb...hence the MIA action.
I've been through all sorts of scans...even a diagnostic laproscopic surgery to try to find the culprit of this mysterious pain I've got going on...
but it's still unexplainable.
Everything looks good on paper...that's great
...but there is still a nagging pain for which there is zero reason.
I was even treated for INTERNAL SHINGLES cuz the pain was so bad.
Yah, it's a thing.
I took the meds just in case..couldn't hurt, right?
Only God knows what this is.
For now...I'm ok with that.
The miracle is, He has given me peace through all of this.
I'm usually such a wimp guys...you don't even know.
It's fair to say I've bordered on being a hypochondriac throughout my life.
But this time, it's different.
I've faced scans, several doctors and surgery with zero fear of death...
I know it's God.
He has seriously given me strength to endure serious pain for which there is no explanation.
It's not constant, mind you..but it strikes without warning.
As a result...I've missed church, grad parties...and I've had to take it
I'm grateful for each day He gives me.
It could be serious.
It could be nothing (I might live 'til I'm 80!)
Either way, God holds my future.
I'm not sure why I feel led to "put my biz" out there...I'm not asking for sympathy or even attention...
I just feel like someone needs to know that they aren't alone in pain...
hey...I'm waiting in a hallway too, guys.
Somehow, some way...God can use this.
We aren't forgotten, even when we feel that way.
I may not be the old me
but this is a new me...
and I have to say...
I'm at peace.
~as long as God is there with me~
That is all.
Life is good dear.
