Choosing To See The Blue Sky
The older I get the more I am understanding all of those phrases we hear through out our lives, one comes to mind this very second as I think of those silly chickens of ours..."The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence." Not long ago, the landowners gave us permission to fence off all of the pasture from our back fence to the next pasture so our chickens would be safe and have a large area to scratch and do their chicken stuff. You guessed it, I'm sure, they want to go on the other side of that fence...same field, just on the other side of the fence, go figure.
Here is the phrase that we are living with right now, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!" That's it....When we get a bad report of any kind in life, we have two choices. We can run from it or we can face it, and no matter which one we choose, it is still there. So, in our family we choose not only to face it, but charge at it...plow right through it and then continue on.
I have nothing new to report on Kami except that on Wednesday they will be doing a procedure to biopsy a node next to her heart and lung, a bit touchy so she will be in for 4 - 6 hrs. to keep an eye on her after the 20 min. procedure.
Many thanks for the special comments and all of the supportive and loving emails. I can't begin to tell you how much that means when your world falls apart and you can't see straight to even pick yourself up....My heart is full with your kindness.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 .
