For those of you who don’t know, I have been alittle under the weather since before Christmas. I was having really bad cramps, diarrhea and alittle heartburn when I would eat. It lasted all of 4 weeks before Cedric convinced me to go to see a doctor.
I spent the other day in the Emergency room from about 8am til 5pm. I hated having to take the day off from my new job, but I really couldn’t take it anymore. I had blood and urine taken and they both came back fine. The doctor then decided that I should get a CAT scan just to rule out anything else besides some kind of bug or something.
The doctor came back and told me that he had found something on the scan. There is a mass on my left kidney. He explained that it was wonderful that we found it while it is so small. It has not spread in any way and it should be very simple to remove it. After that, he can inspect it and tell me if it’s benign or malignant.
If this news had come to me a few years back, it would have devastated me, but I have grown in God since then and I KNOW HE did not bring me this far to leave me! Over the last year, God has allowed me to purchase a new car, get a new job AND get engaged to a wonderful man of God. If I doubt Him now, I haven’t learned anything!!!
My first appointment with the Urologist is this coming Thursday and I will keep everyone posted. God has been to good to me for me to stop praising Him now!!
For those of you who don’t know, I am starting a new job next week! I have prayed long and hard for this and I am so grateful for the year that God has given me at my current position.
My new job will be alittle closer to home and it’s the type of position that I have really been looking for for a long time now. I’m not going to say much more about it yet. I start on December 8th and trust me….this will be a big change and it’s an awesome opportunity!!
God has made so many changes in my life since this time last year! Sometimes, all I can do is look up and say Thank you Lord! I don’t know where I would be without his continuous blessings!
My new job will allow me to be off on Saturdays and Sundays and I am finally looking forward to being able to give God back some time for worship! I’m thankful for the man He has put in my life who has encouraged me to move forward and closer to God.
Jesus, you are amazing!!!
I feel it already. I’m tired; and it’s physical AND mental. But you know what? Like my fellow Christian said: I WOKE UP! God is truly good! I am so thankful for the love he has put in my life and the growth that He has provided me with. When I look back over the last few years, I am TRULY amazed at how far God has brought me. All I can do is shake my head and say Thank you Lord for your grace and mercy!!
Even though today may feel like it’s going to be a long day? I’m grateful to be alive! He didn’t have to wake me up, but He did!
Balance is not an easy thing to maintain. Truth be told: I am having a hard time with it. I had been out of the workforce for over 10 years, so when I went back to work I knew there would be some struggles. I’m thankful that God is with me and showing me the things that I need to work on.
Between my health, finances and energy, it all gets a little overwhelming. I just pray that I can keep myself in good health and continue moving forward. Thank you Lord, for being with me!
My baby has graduated high school and I have never been so proud of him in my life! God has taken Ramel and I safely through the first chapter of our lives and now we are on to the second!!
Thank you Lord, for a wonderful graduation and Ramel’s wonderful Big Couple Patrick and Monika! You have never let me down Lord, and you never will!!
There are days when you need to retreat;
not go away, but go inside.
Inside of yourself
inside of your thoughts
and reacquaint yourself with your dreams.
Sometimes your dreams won’t wait.
They won’t wait while you’re in love.
They won’t wait while you’re too tired.
They just won’t wait.
Instead of making time for That One,
make time for That Thing.
THAT THING that makes your heart sing.
THAT THING you can’t stop thinking about;
THAT THING that you’ve always wanted to do.
There are people around to help you.
You just have to recognize them for what they are:
blessings in disguise;
once in a lifetime opportunities;
If your circle does not embrace your dreams,
you need a new circle.
