2 Peter 3:18 -- But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
.... Physical therapy every day ... and the Holy Spirit haunting my heart and soul about RESTING & RELAXING!!
This is going against everything in my nature, DNA, and character!!! A subtle torture and agony!? To finally… And suddenly except a new lifestyle and attitude is humanly totally impossible!!!! No matter what I "know" in my head… My emotions and heart are still cranked up, intense and ready to do battle!!
Hummmmm!?! I know in my head God can do this… Nothing is impossible with Him... but this is a new chapter in my life which is definitely mysterious and unknown.
This has been quite a week. (I think I said that last week, too. Ha ha) Such emotion, prayer and anticipation of the unknown (weather-wise) for so many people in various areas going on. My sister was down in Florida helping a friend and my niece lives in the Miami area so they were a personal family concern.
Last minute I agreed to come to a nearby church's neighborhood festival and take photos for an hour.
After a teary morning, my heart was open and ripe, and looking to meet with Jesus as I headed out of the house alone, my husband remaining at home to try to sleep off his second round of illness over the past few weeks. He sent me with 5 euros in coins, in case I found something I wanted to buy from the vendors there.
Hopping off the tram, the slushy, melting snow from last night followed me all the way down the 10 minute walk into the neighborhood, where the church was nestled. I hopped puddles and carefully avoided rough patches. Needless to say, by the time the church came in view, my boots were a bit soggy.
