The journey that I am on is not an easy one with all the ups and downs and the twists and turns but I know it is a journey that is worthwhile and I will gladly go through all that comes my way because I am a better person with all the things I am learning along the way.

Will I stumble and fall? YES!!! Will I get back up? YES!!! Will I give up? NO!!! Will I give in? Only to HIS WILL!!!

There will be detours on this journey and they may come in the form of my health, a relative or friend needing assistance, or even me waking up on the wrong side of the bed, as the saying goes. But the good thing about all detours is that you NEVER have to start over again, you just continue down the road because ALL detours end up back on the main road that you started on to begin with.

God is at the helm and He is working this plan for me and I am thankful that I have included Him as my partner. Yes, it would be nice to have a physical buddy to work with and see daily to give them encouragement as they do me but that is not the case, so I trust that God has walked before me to make my crooked places straight as we go through the ups and downs and the twists and turns of this journey which is like a roller coaster ride.

Lord, thank You, for ALWAYS being there for me and knowing what is best for me while You teach me how to get your temple in Divine Order, as I continue walking after You!!!! In the Matchless Name of Jesus the Christ, AMEN!

    HUGS -- we just arrived home yesterday late. Jas did well w/the surgery, but, as you know, spinal surgery is just plain painful. It will be 6-8 weeks of recovery. But it will get better day by day. Meanwhile, I will take good care of him!

    HUGS and blessings. HOW ARE YOU doing??

    Thanks for asking! Jason had his surgery on WEdnesday. They were gon to discharge him Thursday, but he surely wasn't ready! So he ended up being discharged Friday afternoon. So we spent the day today just in the hotel room. Will travel back to WI tomorrow.

    He's still having lots of pain (certainly part of spinal surgery), but it's decreasing bit by bit. and the pain meds are keeping him pretty comfortable.

    HOpe you're doing well!

    Another nice day here in Rochester.

    DH had his spinal surgery today. Pain but it's being controlled. The neurosurgeon is happy w/the results, so I am, too!

    HUGS and hope you're doing well.
