Sorry we had to miss church tonight, my Dad's mother and my mother's oldest sister came in from Alabama. We had us a mini family reunion. I have not seen either of them since all of this "pancreatic stuff" started. (Today is my 3rd week since the surgery and this all started in early Dec. 2005). We had some good food and fellowship and it is so good to just know they are in the same room with us.
Bought another pear tree with my paw- in- laws assistance. Fed the fish some bread (they prefer whole wheat) and the horse some clover. I think I have spoiled her to the green stuff. Still cannot pick-up anything heavier than a phone book (and don't want to) and wish my incision site would normalize real soon. If you have ever eaten too much food during the holidays and your stomach hurts from being stretch out too much - that is the only way I can explain how it feels. I cannot eat too much at one time though or I would be hurting. Progressive healing - thanks Pastor Don. That's what I am confessing and believing.
Live. Say whatever it was you wanted to say, do whatever it was you wanted to do and be who God created you to be in Christ. If you want to tell your kids how much you love them - then do it. You want to take that 15 minute walk with your spouse just so you can be alone and hold their hand - do it. You wanted to visit that friend you have not seen in a while - don't wait till a diagnosis comes in - do it. We were created unto good works. Do it, for Jesus sake.
Love ya'll. GW.
