I'm hoping you'll join me in prayer over a few things in the next week.:
my most miserable symptoms would lessen (even disappear) as I travel to
Florida this Friday for my brother's wedding (I return on Wednesday,
the 9th). Many of you have been praying that I'd be able to dance at the
wedding, but this week I'm feeling rather desperate to just make the
trip and then remain upright for the festivities. Wouldn't it be grand
if I could do it all?!
2. Grace to
live in the now. When my symptoms flare up as they have this week, it's
hard for me to
focus on my external world because I'm so focused on bearing the waves
yuckyness that wash over my body. Usually, it takes every ounce of focus
and stamina I've got to get through these waves. I'd so love to have
the presence of
mind to be able to notice and enjoy the details of this weekend. I want
to remember this weekend's wedding festivities.
3. That my anxiety about flying while so sick will lessen.
Because my central nervous system is already not functioning correctly,
anxiety makes me feel sicker.
4. The layover between my connecting flight is short. Please pray that my body would allow me to make it from plane to plane.
5. I'd so love to have a keen sense of God's presence and peace this week.
my friend posted a selfie on Instagram in which she is wearing a pink
shirt to support a friend with cancer. Other friends have also been posting photos in support of this same friend with cancer. Seeing this photos has me realizing afresh how wonderful
it is to have my very own support team who has rallied around me for
five years in prayer and encouragement. That is such a long time
to be getting prayer requests for the same person about the same issue. I
know it can be tiring to bear my burden with me in prayer and support,
so thank you so much for sticking with me through it.
I love you guys,
