Today was really good. There was some mix up as to when my treatment was to start. Then my port was accessed only to find out that it was not necessary to do so until this Friday. I then had to have it flushed, un-accessed and re-bandaged. It was an inconvenience at most. I felt a little lost, but remembered that this has rarely happened to me and that I have decided to live a life of peace in the midst of a world full of chaos. So I am cool.
I found that today I was battling anger on and off - not that I was mad, just that there was a temptation to want to get mad - about anything. The weather, the family or the dog. I think it was medicine induced or something like that. Whatever the reason, God's Word is the only way to deal with anger or any other of life's numerous challenges. Trust me. The only life worth living is a life of Faith - Faith in Christ and what he accomplished on the Cross.
I got a call from a friend today, Ricky, who has had goats (for milk and meat) for the past 5 years. He and his wife do the whole organic thing with the garden, chickens and all. What's funny is that I was reading some more in the 'Goat Handbook' when he called. It was great to hear from him and we are going to try and get together and play catch up.
Today was full of 9/11 coverage. I agree, we must not forget - and our children who were too young to know need to be told what happened. We need to continue to pray for the U.S. to remain, "one Nation, under God"...
May God shed His grace on thee. In Jesus name.
