I would have used the show title "Iyanla, Fix My Life" as the name
of my blog, but wasn't sure if that was against SP law.
The plumbers have been here three times in the last two weeks and finally replaced the water line, again (they replaced it two years ago). I'm sure my neighbors love looking down from the balcony over the muddy swamp that is my yard after the backhoe left today. They dug up rocks the size of my truck hood. Arkansas is rocky.
Oh, and yesterday the roofing company showed up unannounced with all the shingles and materials to unload for our upcoming roof replacement. I wasn't happy with the zero notice and called and told them so. Please, please, I said - give me some notice before you begin roofing. Ha! Fellow showed up early this morning and backed a huge trailer in the driveway, dropped it and left. Roofers followed him. DH was not happy. He wanted to take the garaged boat out this evening. Whoops.
I did get a good report from the oncologist today following up on the removal of atypical tissue. I have a great job and can work from home or in the office. DH's job is driving him crazy, but I'm happy he has one. Oh, ortho doc says bone-on-bone now on my left hip. Scheduling total hip replacement for December. FIL passed July 28. MIL has been in hospital / nursing home since August 10 - 3-1/2 hours away from us. Making a lot of trips and taking care of the house, mail, bills - wondering the outcome when Medicare decides no more "rehab" for MIL and she is not capable of living alone any longer.
Over and over again I keep repeating Bible verses that popped in my head a few weeks ago:
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV.
There have been times of late when all I can do is whisper "Be anxious for nothing..." and it calms me because "I know Whom I have believed in." Iylana can't fix all my broken pieces, but there's Someone who surely can and will. Maybe not here or today, but "God's gonna fix it all after while."
God bless you.
