Wow! I can’t believe its been over a week since the last time I posted anything! I’ve been spending every evening that I have free talking to Derick on Skype. And if I can’t do that I’ve been vegging out in front of the TV after the kids are in bed. I’ve just been too tired to try to write anything coherent.
Derick and I have been trying to talk on the phone for the last 15 minute but I think our total talk time has been about 3 minutes. Neither one of us has a good signal and the call keeps dropping. I need a new phone so bad. I think I can get a new one for a discounted rate in December. I’m such a tight-wad though, when it comes to phones. I want the free one that has no features. And the only things I do with it is call and text. No internet, no fancy ring tones, nothing extra. I hate paying $100 for our two phones, anything more than that would make my stomach hurt! I am kind of excited to see the new phone that Verizon is coming out with. Its their answer to the iPhone.
I’ve been thinking about my mother-in-law a lot lately. I miss seeing Bill and Bonnie. I miss them for the kids. My kids have had continuous colds for the last month. I can’t take them to see her with runny noses and coughs. I feel bad for not seeing her. I need to at least call her. She has made it through 2 chemo treatments, and after 4 treatments she can have the stem cell replacement surgery. So, that is scheduled for around Thanksgiving.
What’s really been weighing on my mind is how to pray for her. I was praying for healing. I really do think that if she is going to recover from this, it is going to take an act of God. But, God has been showing me that I need to be more concerned about her relationship with Jesus than her physical healing. If she is following Jesus, then when she gets to heaven she will have a perfect body with no sickness or disease. But, if she isn’t, then physical healing isn’t going to matter much when she leaves this earth. So, I have been praying, instead, for Bill and for Bonnie to pave a personal encounter with Jesus Christ.
Derick is flying from California to Cuba on Thursday. Of all the things that I could worry about, he is not one of them. He will be working inside the prison, where the inmates are, but I don’t worry at all about him. I have no doubt in my mind that we are exactly where God wants us to be right now and God will take care of my husband. Hopefully after Thursday, I will be able to write more. We will only be able to talk on Skype. His cell phone will be shut off.
It appears that I have a lot on my mind. Honestly, God has been taking care of things for me.
