*A note before you read this. After doing an audit of my blog in 2022, I have decided to leave content that speaks to the Christian I was at the time this was written. I no longer identify as Christian (and haven’t for a very long time.) I chose to leave these posts because it is who I was then and it is important to me to be honest and true with every iteration and evolution of self that I experience. I may decide to add comments to the end of posts like this as well
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed…”
And I was not consumed yesterday. I might have been having a great big pity party yesterday, but I was not consumed by anything other than my selfish tragedies. (Name that Jeremy Camp song. One of my favorites.)
“…for his compassions never fail.”
I can’t tell you how many understanding nurses gave me a hug yesterday after I wrote that. And one Ivy Tech Student instructor sought me out in the little oncology-floor waiting room and said, “You look awful distressed today and I think you need to talk it out. What is going on?” Then she gave me the biggest hug. Thank God for her.
“They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him’.”
And they are new today. I feel better. Thank you, my friends, for your comments, your emails, and most of all, your prayers. (((hugs)))
