This month brings two important anniversaries for me. June 24, 1987, I graduated from High School, making this year the 30th Anniversary. It is also 8 years since I nearly died at the hand of my ex husband. It is hard to believe how fast life passes you by.
I have very few people that I still speak to from high school, only those who have been life long friends. I have even fewer from the time when I left the panhandle who I still communicate with. It’s hard to believe those who believed the lies of an abuser over the woman who nearly died at his hands. <shrug> It is what it is. Can’t change the world or those who have eyes that can’t see.
My son & I are preparing to head North on Saturday to visit an old friend from my USMC days. So excited. A whole lot of catching up will be had and a whole lot of laughing, singing, dancing and foolishness. I haven’t even begun to pack. I figure tomorrow is soon enough.
I am one week post surgery on my throat and still feeling a bit of pain; but what can you expect when you have something shoved down your throat to remove a cyst. It’s healing according to the doctor.
Currently reading three books. One is on Ruth and breaks down her life with Naomi and how she abandoned her life in Moab to go with her mother-in-law, to Judah, and worship the one true King. The 2nd is a Max Lucado study on Jesus at the Cross. It is broken down into the tiniest of details of that day. My 3rd is by Anne Graham Lotz called “The Daniel Prayer”. It is how to make your prayer life as powerful as Daniel prayed to the Lord and finally freed the Israelites’ from their 75 year imprisonment by Babylon. It’s a follow along study with Videos on her site.
I bought the movie, “The Shack” on Tuesday and my son & I watched it that night. Such a powerful movie and had me in tears again. Love that movie so much. The lessons it brings are simply beautiful and give such hope.
