It’s been a while

Hi everybody! I know it’s been a while since I last wrote, I had some things come up, and I’ve been distracted for a while.

In early December, I was out with my mom for dinner and to go watch the music, I ended up breaking my leg in two places and have been laid up for a while. I hope that I won’t be like this for much longer, as they said there is a possibility that I will only have to wear the huge immobilizer on my leg for another four weeks.

This evening, some women from church came over to where I live and sing Christmas carols outside my window. I can’t go out right now so it was really nice to have them at the window singing the Christmas carols.

Having them come over even if I could not go outside was really nice. I’ve always enjoyed Christmas carols and having them sing them this time was no exception.

Even with my late being and pain today, and having a really rough night last night, I was still able to enjoy the songs. I feel so blessed that God put it on their hearts to come visit me tonight. I found out a week or so ago that this was planned and I’ve been so excited ever since; I certainly was not disappointed!

I go back to see my orthopedic surgeon on the 20th and hopefully, I will not have to wear this big, bulky immobilizer all the time. I hope that they will be able to put me in something smaller and that I will be able to get around easier. One of the fractures is right below my knee, so I have to keep my knee straight all the time. I’ve never realized before how much easier it was for me to get around before this happened.

I have always been a believer that when something like this happens it is because I am either supposed to learn something from it or minister to someone else. If I am supposed to learn something from this, I would have preferred that God teach me in a less painful manner. Who knows though, maybe he didn’t try but I didn’t listen. I can be stubborn when I want to so that would not surprise me one bit. I just hope that whatever it is I’m supposed to learn from this, I’ve learned so that I don’t have to do it again.

That is all that I can think of for now, but I hope that I will be able to write more often like I was doing. I hope that everyone had a good Christmas and you will all have a good 2014.

I will talk to you again soon,

Erin

PS: I read this post with my Dragon dictating software. I got it for Christmas, and it’s made this so much easier!

Daily Prompt: My Precious

Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRECIOUS.

There are so many people in my life who are precious to me. My cat is precious to me. Some people have real, human babies;  I have a furbaby. She is my child. Among my family, friends, and furbaby;  I don’t hold any of them in such high esteem that they can do no wrong. Holding a single person in such high regard, is to idolize that person.

Exodus 20: 1-6 (NASB) reads: 

1 Then God spoke all these words, saying,

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 

5 You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 

6 but showing loving kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

The Lord my God is the only person in my life whom I hold to such high esteem that He can do no wrong. Unlike people, God is infallible. He is perfect. Nothing God does is wrong, because he is a  righteous and just God. He has brought me through every challenge I have faced since my birth in 1981. Some may say that God made a mistake when I was born with Spina Bifida. I disagree. God has a reason for why I was born with my disability. God has a purpose for my life. To do God’s will for my life, is my desire in this life. I want to do everything he means for me to do, and experience everything he means for me to experience in the span of time he has set aside for me to be on this Earth. My greatest wish is to fulfill His plan fr me in this life, to the best of my ability. I cannot live my life the way he intends for me to live on my own though. I need his guidance, love, discipline, and forgiveness; if I am ever going to be able to carry out His will for my life.

My God says that I am not to have any other gods before Him. My God says that I am not to have or worship any idols. He is a jealous God, and I am to worship only Him.  So, so answer the daily prompt as wholly as possibly; my God is the one in my life who can do no wrong.

Oh my goodness! I just ran across this on Facebook and had to share it! As many of you know, I am a cat lover and have a furbaby of my very own, so this caught my eye. It gave me a chuckle, and I hope you enjoy it as well!
