well, hmm, it has been a while. what's new? not much, yet, a whole heck of a lot!
it's raining out and i love it.
i'm still waiting too see if i get funding for a cpap machine for my apnea. bleh. i'm soo dopey these days, i'm not driving anymore, rarely anyways. i'm thinking of cancelling my car insurance, why pay $175 a month if i'm not driving? ... so instead, i'll get a bus pass. some freedom to roam, anyways! and when i get the cpap and feel better (i hope!) i can fire up pipsqueak again (my wee car, lol).
God is good, doing awesome things in my life. but can't say too much about it really, it's too.... BIG... y'know? lol
upcoming plans, Lord willin' (an' Lord makin' a way'n! but He's a miracle worker, eh?) : -going to a wedding in PG in november -spending time with a currently pregnant friend in Edmonton when she delivers in december -visiting mags in nanaimo/going to gtt at oceanside, maybe in same trip, whenever that may be, asap?
i think that "Lord, i was born a ramblin' gal"... got the roaming itch. i really need to get healthy enough to drive again, i thinkest! Lord be willin'! His agenda, no' mine~!!!!!!!
ta ta for now!
(one day, maybe, i'll work on my template a bit and make it so i can see my page from my cell phone, and thus/ergo post from my phone. when i made up the template i kinda destroyed the mobile settings, i mean, who looks at blogs on a mobile phone, anyways? (*whacks head*))
yah, uhuh, i got me a case of strep. i went to the doctor on thursday, and i got bawled out for coming in so late. he said it was BAAAD. it was extreme pain to swallow (i'd stopped trying, spit cup in hand), and my throat was so red and swollen he said if i'd left it a bit longer it might have caused difficulty breathing, or even choking. so....
instant antibiotics and liquid t3.... and he said if the antibiotics don't make a difference in a day or so, i'd have to go on intravenous antibiotics! .... well, fortunately they kicked in, is saturday evening now and i'm a little more mobile, but still sleeping LOTS.
it figures the one time i take an owie to the doctor and he doesn't say, "oh, that's nothing to worry about", i get in trouble from him! lol.
i'll be at church tomorrow, even if it means sleeping on the pews (i'm catching a ride with debbie at 8:30 am). three days of antibiotics, not a chance that i'm contagious anymore!!!!! lol!!!
btw the boil is healing up fine. it's one of those God things. got me some figs right next door! (heehee) (see isaiah 38:21, God is hilarious! and awesome!!!! yeah!!!!)
THIS BLOG IS IN NEED OF AN OVERHAUL. there are posts from years back i would not be able to post in good conscience now. i plan to overhaul the blog, and either delete or add a disclaimer to those posts. but that is gonna take time....
The Radical Summons: "Therefore let us go to Him outside the camp and bear the reproach He endured. For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come." Hebrews 13:13.
"The Spirit never loosens where the Word binds; the Spirit never justifies where the Word condemns; the Spirit never approves where the Word disapproves; the Spirit never blesses where the Word curses." —Thomas Brooks
"God receives none but those who are forsaken, restores health to none but those who are sick, gives sight to none but the blind, and life to none but the dead. He does not give saintliness to any but sinners, nor wisdom to any but fools. In short: He has mercy on none but the wretched and gives grace to none but those who are in disgrace. Therefore no arrogant saint, or just or wise man can be material for God, neither can he do the work of God, but he remains confined within his own work and makes of himself a fictitious, ostensible, false, and deceitful saint, that is, a hypocrite." --Martin Luther (W.A. 1.183ff)
i will not let You go: "Jacob's sense of his total debility and utter defeat is now the secret of his power with his friendly Vanquisher. God can overthrow all the prowess of the self-reliant, but He cannot resist the earnest entreaty of the helpless." --Albert Barnes
i will not let You go: "Jacob's determination did not flow from his strength, it flowed from his weakness." --Charles Leiter
