A Window into Life in the Suburbs

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Appointment with Life

This past week has turned out to be Appointment Week. And that has been both tiring and overwhelming.
Generally speaking I don't agree that ignorance is bliss but after a couple of sessions on pain relief, pre-op prep,and post-op recovery process, I'm beginning to wonder if there aren't some areas in life that the saying might just be applicable to.

Frankly, it's not that I want to be kept in the dark but there's so much to remember. Hence, I'm suffering from information overload stress. If you're thinking that I've got the nerves... you betcha I do...

Then there were the dental visits, which were needed obviously but I came away from them, a tad weary. Jaw stretching is strangely tiring and that somehow turned into a headache.

I daresay my body is in urgent need of repair and I'm glad that it's going to happen soon but having to bum around for 4-6 weeks is a tough call. Obviously I won't just be watching videos or reading... but will be doing plenty of post-op exercises and walking.

I'd be lying if I didn't say that I'm nervous but the Psalms have been a great comfort to me these past weeks. I didn't choose to read the Psalms... I follow a reading plan fairly loosely and this was the time allocated for the Psalms. Not everything that I read applied directly to my situation BUT everything I read spoke about a great sovereign Lord well-acquainted with the affairs of men.

I can't count the number of times that truth has sustained my soul.

  1. Hi Lilian,
    I have caught up on your news late, but just saying I am praying for you now. Perhaps you need prayer today too?! May the Lord heal and strengthen your weary body and cause you to glide like the eagle, in His thermal up-draft!
    Love Emma
