Sometimes life hands you something you really don't want to deal with. Response to those type of things can vary a lot for different people.
I chose to not share the particular issue I was fighting, with others. Maybe because I didn't want to think about it more than necessary. I chose instead to really focus on the ones I love the most. Life is short and memories we make are precious.
This past week one of my cousins and her Pastor husband came to visit. They had left the Amish some months before we had under very similar circumstances, so we have a lot in common. It was great visiting and catching up with each other's lives.
I couldn't quite hide what I was dealing with, while they were here. They asked if they could pray for healing. Of-course I accepted.
That issue has been healed. Completely removed. It is so nice to be pain free. I have been going to bed praising God. Waking up in the morning with great thankfulness. God is good. All the time. I had peace either way, but I'm so thankful He answered the prayers.
The little notes and birthday e-cards I had scheduled to be delivered over the next two years to our children ...... I'll leave them scheduled and as they arrive I'll simply take them as another reminder to praise God.
