This week will be our last “busy week” for the B&B… when next weekend is gone… there will be only 28 days left till shutdown… and only 8 of those days will Philip need to get up to cook some breakfasts… !!!!
My personal yo/yo yay/boo health situation has caused me to wonder several times if I would be able to even handle the few breakfasts we have left. My huffy/puffys are really weird and continue to keep me in deep conversations with the Lord. Then last night… I thought for sure that the Lord had healed me… I was breathing like a normal person again…all night long…. this after 3 nights in a row with no sleep at all…
I put my feet up in the morning before taking my shower… and this wheezy thingy came all over me like a flood… I struggled to breathe just like most days. Managed to get thru serving the breakfast… then went up for my next feet up session … it was about as bad as it gets… again… more deep conversation with the Lord… more wondering what this one is all about.
Fortunately I have this incredible wife who encourages me and loves on me all the time… then a visit just before lunch from my buddy John Turner… more encouragement… then another friend Kenny, who also blogs, sent out his latest posting… ending with this:
“Today, focus on who Jesus is. Give thanks that only Jesus, who rescued us from sin and death, is able to give us true joy and fulfillment.”
This quickly reminded me of the 4,698 times I have talked about the imposters of winning/losing – triumph/tragedy – etc/etc…. then added … healed/not healed…
The spirit of discouragement that had been jumping all around me during the day… left… and I was full of His joy again.
