Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

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!
