It is time for another
update. This time, I decided to focus on the good things that
are happening - and there are so many.
When I was originally
faced with doing peritoneal dialysis, I hated the idea because
I didn't feel I had the strength or the discipline to do it. As
time goes on, I find not only do I have the strength, but I am
feeling much better these days. I'm even spending more time in
the kitchen cooking for myself.
I thank God for the
people working here. For the most part, they're so very helpful.
If I were to live in my own home and had to pay for the services
that are provided, it would amount to much more than the monthly
rent I have to pay.
Every month, I have
to trust God to provide the $2,000.00 I need to meet my monthly
budget. So far, he's been faithful. I've been praying that God
would fix my situation so that I wouldn't be concerned about finances.
This is me thanking
God for my family. This month, two of my sisters came over and
we spent the entire afternoon singing, laughing, praying, and
crying. Remembering from where God had brought me.
God is restoring some
of my piano playing ability that was lost when I had the stroke
in '95. I still find it difficult to play and sing at the same
time due to the lack of breath control, but I'm dealing with it.
I'm thankful that I
have a renewed interest in deep down meat-eating bible searching
and I'm spending time learning features on my Casio CJ 541. I'm
focusing on how to spark a greater interest and attendance to
the Bible studies. Perhaps you could suggest something I could
do to encourage the residents to attend the studies.
Love you so much,
