Since it is a day all about love, I thought I'd put this sweet little pic up.
Gabi adores her cousin Kalvyn.
I'll admit, I'm getting the baby itch again.
I know that is going to have to wait until my health is taken care of, but it doesn't mean I can't drool a little bit. :-) So precious.
Dustin and I haven't been good about getting pictures of each other or I'd put one up of my sweetie. I'm not sure I really knew the depth of His love until I got this tumor.
I know when I said my vows, the "in sickness and in health" didn't really register. Life is just starting out, you have stars in your eyes, and then reality hits. Our reality has been my health and the inconvenience it causes. Now I know for sure he meant those vows. Not that I doubted him in the first place. :-) It's nice to know that he is there for me to depend on no matter what. Thank you, babe! That is the best Valentines Day gift I could ever get!
As for those pictures I was talking about...
maybe we will get some of the two of us on our three day vacation.
To Mayo, that is.
God is really having to give me grace today.
It's Valentines Day.
I'm fasting because I have a colonoscopy tomorrow.
Instead of a romantic date, I will be drinking guck tonight.
I'm not sure how guck will settle on an empty stomach.
Guess I'll see.
Plenty have gone before me and have survived.
The race we are running isn't an easy one. Today is one of those that make me cling even harder to my Savior. I want it all to go away, but...
"As for God, His way is perfect."
"Rejoice always" Even when you don't get to eat and have to drink Guck on Valentines Day. :-)
Verses have so many new meanings to me these days. :-)
Thank you so much for your prayers. As you can see, I still very much need them.
I may not be able to update this over the next few days, but I will when I get home.
Pray for endurance on both of our parts. It's a fairly heavy load of tests over the next few days. I want to be a good testimony to those I'm around, and sometimes when I am in pain it is easy to get the "Woe is me" attitude.
We also want some answers, so pray these tests enlighten the Doctors.
And pray that Dustin and I continue to grow closer through this both to each other and to our Lord. We know the fact that we are traveling this road isn't a mistake.
