My HoneySi and I spent most of our day in Collierville BMH as we continue this journey toward wellness. As I sat there waiting, I started to think about a statement from my husband about his experience of not being able to breathe. He said as he was shouting that he could not breathe, twelve windows came into view and he was trying to find an opening to get air. When he returned after surgery, we discussed the dream again and our windows of life are having to be framed with faith, hope, and love. This is revelation and revival.
Yes I am awake and I know it is 01:33, but I just finished taking care of my HoneySi at 12midnight. I have not been doing well to meet my goal of seventy two blog posts of 100 words since our ER , ICU and readmit to the hospital since October 5, 2017. One of the blogs I follow caught my eye because of my anxiety about my husband’s Kidney failure and starting Dialysis about three weeks ago. I am taking time to read and write as I realize how life is unpredictable. I must learn to use my days and enjoy every precious moment.
I am at the close of this September day. My family and friends have been very kind to call to offer sympathy because this is my GirlMic’s date of birth. She died two years ago on September 1, 2015 and they have called to encourage me and share pictures of the beautiful life she lived for fifty one years. I know offering sympathy is one of those times in life where words are never enough so I share this family picture to offer my sympathy to the many people who will find themselves sitting on the front pew.
There is a chime of rhyme as I am looking back in time. I would like to make these words rhyme as I look back at the past two years. My writing is used to help me move forward while also remembering some special precious moments. I approach these words, chime, rhyme and time by pulling out the last two letters, me. When I think of what blesses me, I use this visual of a painting by my grandgirl Patrice which hangs above my computer with the scripture from Proverbs 3:6. This message speaks to me and it sets me free.
I have to admit that I am distracted easily by how people react and respond in places where I find myself frequently. I have been praying for restoration and revival to start with my own soul and spirit. I was driving recently and asking the Lord to help me go in the right direction. I must say that I attended several churches in one weekend and when I looked at the prompt word lurch, the first word I thought of was church. I now pray daily for all connected churches , leaders and members to keep us free from church lurch.
The Challenges of raising support for the Breast Cancer Walks that I participate in begins today. I like using the word unfurling as it describes a spread out or a shake out. I have been a card carrying American Cancer Society member since 2001 and I enjoy the experiences and events which allow me to see friends who are survivors, advocates and volunteers. They are chosen to meet the challenges in the community. We all must encourage each other to move through situations to solutions and always know that we walk in purpose. We are chosen to meet all challenges unfurling.
Who are the people? These are the ones you watch very carefully as they are people with a sharp point and an agenda that causes distractions to the completion of what God has purposed. Sometimes they are people who use their power and entitlement to keep us from making progress. It is important that we pray for their evil to be exposed by God. We must continually protect our heart that causes us to become offended because we are in a spiritual war. This requires us to watch and pray. This is my midnight revelation and wisdom for day 21 of 40.
