This has been the most miserable summer I can remember. It has rained all but a few days and my pain levels have been through the roof. Every storm brings that low pressure. That pressure makes me want to scream in agony. After yesterday’s rainfall, I walked the dogs and the back yard was a pond. UGH! I’m so sick of this wet, miserable weather. On the other hand, we don’t have to worry about a draught. 🙂
My desire to have a great time at the pool this year has gone out the window with these daily storms. The pool opens at 11 am and by the time we get ready, the storms would come and end our decision to go. It has been upsetting, to say the least.
I’ve survived it, though. I’m still here to tell the tale. On a brighter note, we started back with out Wednesday night bible study last week. Ian is going to the youth study on Wednesdays and he told me he wants to audition for the All State Band next month. He’s playing the big bell tuba now and is so happy. He’s coming out of his shell, slowly; but surely and becoming quite a young man. I’m so proud of him. He’s grown so much this summer and it is noticeable. Since his surgery, he’s grown another 2 inches, making him now 5′ 10″ tall. I’m sure he’s not done growing yet.
I’m looking forward to our Ladies Bible Study to start back up in September. It will be good to be back on schedule again. My Saturday study of the book of Isaiah is going great and I’m really enjoying this prophets works. I’ve started a Faithbook Journal. I’ve begun to journal my faith walk, going back to 2009 when I came back to the church after over 20 years away from God. I have notes from that time that I can refer back to and I’m starting to see how far I have come over that much time. It feels so good. I can actually see the difference in me.
On a funny note, my son puts on the Christian music station in the car when I am upset; because he says it makes me feel so much better when I listen to this music. He’s so right. I feel so energized and charged up after a bible study, church or just listening to Christian music. I feel so much closer to God and that makes me happy.
Life is beautiful, despite the rain and the pain.
