22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
What a beautiful day it is today! My child requested a morning at Papa's house, which he happily agreed to. I took the opportunity to run to the store to buy my girl some Spring clothes, and clean our house. I am talking, down on the knees, dusting baseboards type cleaning. I shook out rugs, mopped floors, all of it. There is just something about a clean house that makes happy and peaceful.
I have also worked out this week, which completely changes how I feel. Praise the Lord for being able to feel my muscles move again, to challenge them, and even experience soreness the next day! In fact, you would get a nice chuckle if you could see me right now. My gait is much like that of a nine month pregnant woman due to an intense leg workout I did with a client Wednesday. I typically do not workout with clients, but this client is different, and so was our schedule Wednesday, and now we are both limping and waddling around. I love it.
Monday morning I get to go in and have some nuclear something or other test done for my gallbladder. My sister (who is two years older than I) had hers removed not too long ago, so I am being accused of trying to be like her. The ultrasound Wednesday did not show any gallstones, so this is the next step in testing. Whatever, do what you need to do, just as long as the constant pressure/pain in my side goes away (she says after having waited 3 months to go to the doctor about it). There are a few things I am not to jazzed about however. First of all, I have to fast beginning at midnight prior to the test. The test is not until 10 am and I cannot even have water. What in the world? They clearly do not understand the first thing I do upon waking is drink a glass of water, nor do they realize how much water I typically consume in a day. Madness I tell you. Secondly, the test takes two hours and I will just be laying there. Seriously? I have to lie still for two hours. Again, they have no idea who they are dealing with here. Pray for me, no, pray for them.
The girl is taking a nap and I have some chores to complete. I hope each of you are enjoying your day, are finding moments of great joy and peace, and are laughing today!
