Doctor’s Update :)

I am feeling much better this afternoon after a visit with the Doctor’s Office this morning.

First – Thank you to Bill who took care of JP’s other obligation so he could be a good boy and go to the doctor.

Second – Thank you to all of you who have been praying about his situation.

It seems that most of his issues should be able to be remedied with healthy habits.  This means he has to get out of that office chair and out of that white van (While driving everyone about) and get moving.  I promise to not cook with AS MUCH butter too.  I know it will help all of us 🙂

He is still having these “flutters” in his chest, but he is NOT having a heart attack and there is NO damage happening.  They are going to have him wear a heart monitor for 48 hours to see if they can catch the flutter in progress and maybe figure out what is causing it.

(My guess is stress)

So, all in all, a great appointment. He has been stuck with enough needles to know that all is perfectly normal… well, he is as normal as blood work can tell you 🙂

A little more waiting, but it seems all is going well.


Wonderful Peace

I find myself just silly sometimes.  I have been a tad (HA!) worried about JP and his health issues as of late.  Every time he breathes funny or stops short of what I think he should be doing, I am asking him what is wrong.

He is having these issues, and I really pray that they can find an answer.  Recently they told him they thought there was some problems, and they did more blood work.  Then, they called him to tell him, that he was not diabetic, but they would not discuss the rest of the results until he was in the office.  THEN, he can’t get into an appointment.  THEN, he moves them, or thinks that they are not really THAT important. I have been ready to shoot him myself!

So, I sit here this morning waiting. WAITING.  I keep trying to remember that I am not in control.  I remember that His plan is greater than mine.  I remember that I am to be “Anxious for nothing.”  I remember that I know His will is perfect.

How come it is so hard to let that sink deep into my soul?  I know these things, and yet I do not have that overwhelming peace sweep over my spirit?

Oh Lord, please give me that peace.

Wonderful Peace

Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial strains it unceasingly falls
O’er my soul like an infinite calm.


Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!

What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in the heart of my soul,
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll!


I am resting tonight in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control;
For I’m kept from all danger by night and by day,
And His glory is flooding my soul!


And I think when I rise to that city of peace,
Where the Anchor of peace I shall see,
That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing
In that heavenly kingdom will be:


Ah, soul! are you here without comfort and rest,
Marching down the rough pathway of time?
Make Jesus your Friend ere the shadows grow dark;
O accept of this peace so sublime!

January To Do…

So instead of messing with resolutions and all that stuff I learned my lesson about last year, I have decided that I would set monthly project goals.  I am a person who love lists and loves projects to accomplish.

1. Doors – all painted and hung.  This requires my father and he is going to be thrilled that I am setting up a time line. Ha ha.

2. Basement – Always the bane of my existence.  Finish what I started last year.  GET IT ALL DONE.

3. Run 60 miles.

4. Have  3 families over for dinner.

5. Our Room – change it from the household dumping ground to a retreat.

We shall see what this girl can do!  I have lots to do, and a end point in sight.  I like a challenge!
