Running the race

Monday, September 14, 2009

Get busy living or get busy dying. That was a good line from Red in the movie Shawshank Redemption. Despite my Mom's health failing, I can see goodness in God, make this a learning experience and get busy living. It ain't over until the fat lady sings and I am not going to be that singing fat lady.

So I was reading about the achievements of others, some people I know, some profiles I read on Spark people and I told myself, why not me? Why not me God? Why not run the race, literally, with dignity and everything that God has put in me. Why not dare a dream, live my life to its fullest potential, using the talents and gifts God has already given me. I do not want to stand before the throne of grace to see all the gifts God had bestowed to me that I did not use. I want to run this race with passion, being a living witness that it can be done. emoticon

Care Sunday

Sunday, September 13, 2009

Today my sisters and I did a conference call to discuss my Mom's care. We each gave valuable input, set up some guidelines and basically reassured each other that we are all united on the same page. I feel stuck in stuck for the past couple of weeks and have to get out of this funk. My Pastor did communion today and spoke on why communion with God is so important.

I am reminding myself daily to keep my focus, to take care of myself and keep my faith high.

"We have not because we ask not". I made my supplication to God and He will answer my prayers! emoticon To God be the Glory emoticon

  


Counting Reality

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Reality kicks in, even when you don't want to think or feel something negative or sad. Reality showed up when after much discussion with my sisters and my Mom's doctor, she will have to into long term care. I walked through my home today looking at how I could make it more handicap accessible, but truth be told the doctor wants her to have 24 skilled trained care, something we aren't equipped or trained to do. Counting reality, I more than ever want my Mom to have quality of life and I am willing to do whatever it takes to ensure she lives her golden years uncompromising.

Reality can be a butt kicker, good, bad and the ugly. I am relying on my strength and faith in Almighty God to see not only my Mom through this, but the rest of my family as well. We have not because we ask not and I have asked God for the peace in all understanding. I know that God's word will not come back to me void!

The Christmas Doctor

Friday, September 11, 2009

Today was my yearly visit to the "Christmas Doctor", as reality star Ruby calls the gynecologist. I peppered my Doctor with tons of questions, since I am dealing with my Mom's uterine cancer diagnosis. As I write this, my Mom is being admitted in the hospital at home because her doctor wants to run some precautionary tests since she fell at home four times this week. It is evident she needs more physical therapy and she can no longer live independently. So road trip! I am heading home next week to help facilitate the move to a shared assisted living apartment.

I know that Jesus is the healer and I have to take care of me first before I can be of any help to Moma. I have to stay on myself to eat properly, get 30 minutes of exercise 5 to 6 days a week to kick start my metabolism, track my food and cast all my cares to God. Yes, I have to give all my worries, concerns, anxieties, and fears to God. Let Him handle it, and not sweat the small stuff.

Wishing you many blessings from above,

Connection Wednesday

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

The President talked about universal health coverage for all Americans. Long time over due for an superpower industrial nation the good ole USA. Protection for all, every tax paying citizen. All the crazy media hype against health reform is just time consuming. The devil is busy trying to mix the message, send out fear and giving no hope to those who are weak in belief.

Jesus came to this earth for a reason, to redeem us for our sins. Believing that Christ died on the cross and rose again three days later for us is free gift from God. God wants us to have heaven on earth, to be healthy, wealthy and wise. It is a free gift, but so many people do not accept this free gift.

I pledge today to take more time and develop my walk with Christ and spend time loving the Lord.

Jesus is life, the rest is just details! emoticon

    Right on! Medicine and healthcare rather than bullets and bombs. Here in Canada, we have free healhcare and it may be expensive, but you can fall down in the street unconsious and they will get you care... and they don't look thru your wallet to see if you have coverage.

I hope it all comes to pass very quickly for you and all your countrymen. AMEN--
