Where I've Been, Where I Am

A few days ago, my sweet mama had back surgery and, because our family is loaded with drama queens ;-), managed to squeeze an unscheduled 2nd surgery in there thanks to a blood clot.  Thankfully, she's recovering well and in rehab for a few weeks.
  I've slept, pretzel-like, in a hospital recliner a couple of nights this week, so my lovely bed at home was even lovelier last night.  It's nice to sit in my own (comfy) recliner with Katniss biting my finger purring contentedly. 
It's been a strange summer.  Weather more like the northwest than the southeast. Big questions at church. Friends in crisis.  Major surgeries.  Budget envelopes.  Other than three days when I stared out at the ocean and generated no serious thoughts at all, I can't say I've rested.
I admit I am longing for rest.
I'm longing for wisdom and a refreshed body and spirit.
Be blessed,


  1. Oh gosh, hope your mother recoups well. Praying for some rest for you!

  2. I hope your mother recovers well! Best of luck!

  3. Oh friend...I know there's weariness, heaviness, maybe discouragement behind these words. Wishing we were in real life friends, that we could sit and chat and even pray together. But, I can pray. I pray that you will be strengthened and comforted. I pray that you would see God go before you making the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth. I pray that you will be refreshed and restored in body, soul and spirit. I pray that your mama would recuperate supernaturally speedily. I pray that God will undertake in your church in miraculous ways, that any and all dissension and strife would cease, and that His will would be done above all.
