And for my final piece of cheery news, haha, I am having a colonoscopy and a EGD done tomorrow morning and have the lovely prep for all that going on today....sigh. I should have had this done a while ago as I am that age, ; ) but now with my continuing stomach issues guess it is just plain old time. I am not going to lie, I DO NOT fast well, and as for a colon cleansing, well I don't have to say much more about that I am sure. I will be glad when it is all over. But in the midst of all my whining this morning I was reading blogs and came across Debbie over at Heart Choices, and felt a conviction from the Holy Spirit as I remembered how many thousands and thousands of people go hungry every day. Many of them having no idea where their next meal is coming from, or if it will come at all. Many of them just children or even babies. My heart hurts for them all. Thanks Debbie for these reminders. I think I can make it through a couple of days. I really do want to be like Paul and learn to be content in whatever state I find myself.
Phil 4:11-13 Of that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I an to be content. I know how to be abased, and how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.
I will sign off for now. Hope you all are having a good week-end!
