The Weekend

We had a good weekend with visits from family and friends and grilling out last night.

Steven has a new craving now. He can't get enough chocolate. I know what he means, as I've been a chocolate lover all my life, but this is eating whole bars and wanting more.

Today is the dreaded MRI. He will take some of his nighttime meds and hope it relaxes him enough to lay still.

Yesterday, while reading my devotion, I felt God telling me I needed to go to church. I really wanted to stay in my recliner and tried to explain Steven was sick and I should stay home, but I knew, He knew, it was my excuse.

He doesn't want me there just for the closeness I feel to Him during the worship music, nor for the instruction I get from the sermon, but because I'm carrying a silent banner that say's, "I'm going through something really hard right now, but being here in church and feeding myself spiritually is a priority."

I'm representative of how big God is. People want to love on us. They want to know how Steve is. They want to see we go on living and making the most of what is. So I got out of my chair and went to church. And I'm so glad I did!


  1. Wished I would have seen you...I would have given you a great big hug, cause it has been so long since I have seen you to do that. I am glad you were obedient. Me to so glad I went to early service. Got to see Brandi and her new man. And Carol. Got to share my news that I am a published author. Wrote a letter thanking my best friends mom for being there for me and they printed the letter in a Hallmark book called Thanks Mom. Paid me $50.00 and 2 books. One for me and one to give her. you inspire me since the first time I met you. Love you!

  2. Sue, I would love to read your story. Good job! I got a 'Carol' hug that weekend too. Nothing like a Carol hug. Thanks again for all your comments and encouragement. Now, if I could just get a 'Sue' hug!
