2013 has gotten off to a rough and blurry start. First, we all caught whatever evil illness was floating around. It made its unwelcome rounds in our family, and left us exhausted for weeks. During that same time Brendon had been suffering from a kidney stone. They are pretty common for him and generally run the course and are gone!
Not this time. The short version is the past three weekends have been spent at a hospital.
The normal quick procedures just didn't work and then complications arose.
We have plans and spending time in the hospital was really NOT part of those plans! Are they ever?
For myself and the children I planned to have half days of school this past week, so that we could do home management projects. Having planning and organizing weeks help us work more efficiently for several months. However, it is time to regroup and replan. We are learning more and more to roll with it and move on when surprises come along.
Old Jerry and Phil had this to say:
Jer 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Phil 4:13: I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
It is true!
