I am waiting. I am not good at waiting. I know that patience is a virtue, but it probably isn’t one of mine. I used to pray for patience a lot, but I found out that it comes wrapped in packages that I am not too fond of! God would send me trials to develop my patience, which wasn’t exactly what I had in mind.
Today I am waiting for the soreness around my port to heal. It has healed quite a bit, but it is still pretty red and sore. I am waiting for my surgery on Wednesday. I am both excited and scared about the surgery. They will be reconnecting my intestines, and I understand that it can take a while before everything starts working correctly again. The surgeon said that in two years or less, I should reach a new normal. I think God is still answering those prayers for patience, although I stopped them years and years ago!
Please pray that I will wait patiently, uhm no….scratch that! Please pray that the time will pass quickly, the surgeon will be alert and capable, and my healing will go better than expected. Thank you for all the support I have had from family, church and friends. I know I have been a recluse lately, but I am waiting to regain my energy and health and get back out in the real world. I am ready to leave Candy Crush, Scrabble, and Blitz, behind. Well, maybe not Scrabble, that’s kind of fun!
Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven.
