Day 258 in moving toward Mickey
For years and years I lived my life in isolation, as much as possible. I isolated myself and ate and tried to avoid stress. In living my life this way, I was putting more stress on my body everyday as I added more and more and more pounds to my frame.
Part of changing that life pattern is taking on new challenges and pushing through to see them accomplished. That’s why I took on the Women’s Retreat at church this spring. So today’s plan was to push ahead and continue getting things set up and ready for Saturday. I did this today. Mission accomplished.
God has a tremendous sense of humor, doesn’t he? Just as I take on this huge challenge, he lets me face an even bigger challenge. The Big C. My surgery is two days after the retreat, and I will be ready to sleep for a week when it’s all over. 🙂 Like The Message says in 2 Corinthians 12:10: “My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” I say, “Come, Lord Jesus.” I expect great things at this retreat.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
