"Put on all of Godís armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil" Esphesian 6:11 NLT
My last blog entry was April 3rd . The next week after my blog about my busy lifestyle, I attended a revival. My faith was strengthen during that revival. On the last day of the revival , I returned home to find my husband very ill. He was in a lot of pain. We rushed to the emergency room. The hospital did all kinds of test but could not find anything. For six weeks, he suffered. After many tests and prescriptions, they could not figure out why he was still have problems. Finally the doctors thought he might have pancreas cancer. However, the test revealed that he had an enlarged aorta. It was soon discovered that my husband had aortic aneurysm.
In the beginning of my husband's illness , I was getting very afraid. But I had prayed and asked God to give me the strength to go through this trial. God gave strength and a peace of mind. By the time we found out about the aneurysm, I was still at peace. And by this time, my husband who was panic sticken in beginning was peaceful when we receive the news of the anuerysm. He said that everything was God's hands.
My husband had surgery for the aneursym on July 8th. Because of this new surgery to repair an aneursym my husband is doing very well today. Thursday he was able to cut the grass on our lawn. He resume most activities he was doing before he got sick.
It was a time that could have been very stressful. It is times like that I typically abandon any healthy lifestyle plans. But this time, I stuck with my diet. I didn't get a chance to exercise. But I didn't have food pity parties. I didn't blog or log in to Sparks, but I was mindful of my choices.
I thank God for my husband and his healing.
