Bible in 90 days Update......

BEHIND!!!!   That is the word.  I am so far behind that its not even funny any more.  First, I fell.  Second, I went out of town.  Thirdly,  I crashed when I got back in town.  Lastly, I have not felt well a couple of days last week and didn't read, plus the fact that I started 4 days later than every one else.  BUT, I will continue to read.  It has renewed my mind set on the things of God rather on my worldly cares.  It is bringing me closer to God than I thought it would.  I have made a decision.  I don't care if I finish in the 90 days or if it takes me 190.  I am going to read until I finish the entire bible REGARDLESS.  Then I may start all over again.  I have begun enjoying my time in the Word like never before.  It has become a part of my daily life and I like that.  I encourage every one to try this challenge of reading the entire bible.  It certainly has changed my life, but then again- God's Word is life changing.   May you have a blessed week in the Lord!!!

Update on Ankle/Toe.......

I went back to the doctor on Sunday to have the stitches taken out of my toe.  The dr. said that a radiologist looked at the x-rays and that all was normal.  So, she gave(not gave but will charge me and my insurance) a walking boot.  I have used it a couple of times.  I have also walked without it and its not too bad.  The swelling is still there and I am black/blue from my little toe to my heel.   Thankfully, I have not had too much pain.  I was actually able to take a "REAL" shower.  I feel human again.  I should be back to my bowling self in about 3 weeks.  At least that's what the doc says.   Now the tide has turned and my hubby is having a terrible gout attack in his heel along with some tendinitis.  AH!!   How is everyone else doing????  How has your week gone???  Would love to hear from you???

5 Year Anniversary......

I am writing this today but tomorrow is the 5 yr anniversary of the day that I first met my hubby.  I remember the day so well.  It was a Thursday and we were to meet at a local resturant.  I was so nervous.  I had a girlfriend of mine scope him out b4 I walked in.  I even remembeer what I was wearing.  We had dinner and talked for about 4 hours.  I remember thinking whether this guy was telling me the truth or not. I found out later-He was.  I felt comfortable with him.  He walked me out to my car and asked for a kiss.  I told him -NO! I would not kiss on the first date, however I allowed him to kiss me on the check.  By the 3rd  date, I knew that this was the man I was to marry and 3 1/2 months later we did get married.  One of the best decisions I ever made.    I thank God daily for bringing me a great husband.  It was well worth the wait.

Klutz Award.......

Friday I was brilliant.....I was standing on a step to pour out water from my cooler.  I tried to turn around to go back into the house and misplaced my foot and BAM! I was on the ground.  Well, I knew that I had hurt myself pretty seriously.  My husband came out and found my lying on the ground.  He helped my up and took me to an Urgent Care Facility.  Long story short: I fractured my ankle, broke my little toe, tried to lose the toe( dr had to put in six stitches to stop the bleeding. I think the skin and muscle torn when the tow bent back), scraped my knee pretty badly.  I still have scrapes and scratches on my toes, legs, and elbow.  The intersting thing is that my knee with the big scrape hurts worse than the fractured ankle. My ankle is wrapped and I have to see an orthopedic doctor in ten days.  The best part of all this is I get to walk on crutches.  YAY!!!!  Can you hear my sarcasm?? However, I truly thank God that I didn't get hurt any worse that I what I did.   I was able to borrow a wheelchair so I am still able to go to my family reunion in WV. 
     I have been elavating my ankle as much as possible.  I try to ice it 2-3 times daily and I try not to put any weight on my ankle at all.  Acouple of times I have lost my balance and ended up using the hurt foot to keep me from falling yet again.  The dr has me on antibodics since I have the gash on my leg.  I am a diabetic and they dont want me getting an infection.  I also have an antibodic ointment to put on my leg 2x daily.   So I am trying to do alll that the dr told me to.
     My mom and husband have both been wonderful in helping me.  They have been waiting on me hand over foot.   They have been great.  It is a bit of an inconvenience not to be able to use this foot but I am hoping that the orthopedic will put a boot on and I can a least walk on my own.
     I feel like such a big klutz for falling but I guess even the best have bad day HUH???
     Have you ever did something that made you feel like a klutz??? I would love to hear your stories!!!!

Prized Possession......

My wedding/engagement rings are my most prized possession.  It reminds me of the day I got married.   One of the best days of my life.  It is also a constant reminder of the love I share with my husband.  I love being married.  It has been one of the most rewarding relationships I have ever had.   I know that in Christ we are complete, but I have to say that I feel like my husband is an extension of myself.   We get along so well.  I have never felt so loved.  I know that I am truly blessed.   What is your most prized possession?  I am talking about that tangible thing you don't want to live without.
