A Time for Everything
It seems like all my posts lately have been "catching up" posts. I seem to take longer and longer breaks between blogging. But, for everything there is a season. And right now, the Lord has fashioned my seasons in waiting on Him. I want to thank all of you that have been so good to check up on me, pray for me, and not forget about me during this time. It has been so precious to read that my friends in blogland have been praying for my recovery. Words just don't seem adequate to express how much that has truly meant to me. I wish I could give you more of an update on my health, but it seems that little else is known. I began getting "dizzy" probably over a year ago. Little by little it got worse and then a few months ago I experienced a bout of something that was much like vertigo...not sure if that is what it was or not. All I know is that I couldn't walk, or stand without running into walls. The episode passed and I have been battling bouts of dizziness ever since. Praise the Lord they have not been to that magnitude! They took a CT scan of my head to rule out all kinds of horrible diseases. It came back with nothing, of which I am thankful to God. I have revamped my diet drastically. That has helped a lot. I am seeing my chiropractor, which has also helped, but the dizziness has not completely gone away. There are days when sitting at the computer and looking at the screen makes me dizzy...therefore, fewer blogging posts. But, truly, God has been so good to me throughout all of this. He continues to shower upon me His grace. He is drawing me closer to Him during this. He reminds me of the preciousness of things taken for granted...like just walking normally. I am learning more and more that things just don't matter in this world. His will, His way, His ultimate purpose for my life is all that does. I am learning to thank God in all things, even for my dizziness because it is through this that I am learning to lean on Him for the very essence of my life. I would greatly appreciate your continued prayers and I look forward, if the Lord allows, to be back to sharing my heart and home with you all soon.
