Truly, I hope this isn't a new habit I am forming, for again last night I did what happened, the night before.
Feeling rather ill, I went to bed early, well at least for me. 10:30 pm, I fell asleep. I felt like sleep, glorious sleep, coming early! To my dismay, I awoke about 12:30 am and that was my whole night's sleep, until I finally dozed off, about a half (1/2) hour before my alarm went off. Good grief!
I must admit, that around 5:30 am, I thought to myself: all of a sudden, I'm feeling improved! My first thought after this was to thank whoever prayed for me and I asked God to bless them, for up until then, I could hardly breathe. I kept praying for God to keep my sinus passage open, so I wouldn't have repercussions with my eye problem. As I said, about 5:30 am, I realized I could breathe! Praise God! Thank You, Jesus! Again, whoever prayed, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Blessings to you.
Once I was up and running, or maybe I should say...walking for the day (lol), I seemed to feel even better. In fact, I thought that maybe I was truly going to be over whatever was ailing me, quickly!
In the morning, I managed to get done everything I needed to do. This was good news to me, for I was feeling rather well!
This afternoon, I once again accomplished what I needed to do and felt great about it.
Then came suppertime.
Feeling rather poorly once again, I thought I would check on and update Facebook (FB). To my surprise, many people had taken my comment from this morning, out of context.
You see, last night before bed, I posted that I felt ill and asked for prayer. Nothing wrong with that, especially since I knew I needed prayer to avoid my eye complications.
This morning, I posted a comment that since I awoke here on earth and not in heaven, God has a plan for me, today! I meant this in a positive way. Okay, okay. So, I found out I'm not great with my sense of humour, for people misunderstood and had quoted scripture about all things in God's time, etc.
It was then, that I realized they thought I was depressed. Well, maybe I am, but that wasn't my purpose in posting this. My purpose was to let everyone know I lived through the night, even though I felt like I was dying (from being ill)!
Once I realized the misconception, I once again commented to clarify and was glad to see friends were understanding.
This evening, I saw a comment from a friend asking what was going on. They obviously hadn't seen the earlier clarification, so I let them know that I was sick and in need of prayer. Shortly after, they commented that they would pray.
Again, I thank all who prayed. May God bless each of you, richly.
But, I must say that my need for prayer has not ended, for I am feeling extremely ill, now. In fact, I can tell you that I am surprised I could even sit long enough to write this entry. It's a good thing I am a quick typist!
Why? Well, without being too graphic, let me just say that I've been spending more time in the bathroom than I have since Gordon died almost a year ago!
Even with this new development, I am thanking God. After all, He did tell us to be thankful in all things.(1 Thessalonians 5:18)!
Thanking Him for making me ill enough, that I believe this virus or whatever it is I have, is flowing through me quickly enough that I will be healed from it, without delay.
Thanking Him for His love towards me, for always taking care of me, for I must rely on Him, alone. Gordon is no longer here to love me and take care of me.
Thanking Him in a special way for my friends, who have shown me love and support, even through this minor of illnesses.
Even though I am thankful for the answered prayer I received earlier today, I am hoping you will bear with me and lift me up in continued prayer, for once again I am stuffed up so that I can hardly breathe.
Thank you for bearing with me. Hopefully, you weren't too bored reading about my being ill. Hopefully, I will never again write about this draining subject (okay, so maybe I intended this pun!).
Thank You, Father. May You bless each praying person, now and always.
Until next time...
