Hi! Does anyone visit this blog? LOL! No matter. It is therapeutic for me to write. Life has been just so busy. Now that Harley, my horse, is home from training, I have orders from hubby to ride him every day! 🙂 Sort of “orders” anyhow. Then the kids have been busy with summer activities.
In just two days I leave town for a week! I am heading off to the Thin Within conference in Kentucky after meeting up with my dear friend, Jan, in Tulsa Oklahoma! I can’t wait to see her and then the folks at the conference.
I wanted to share with everyone who has wondered…YES, I am still hanging in there with Thin Within and applying the principles in my life. Releasing more weight has slowed down…we have been toying with releasing a couple more now, but with all the sweating I am doing working outside and riding Harley it *could* be water weight.
No matter. I feel good.
The bronchitis is about gone, fortunately. Just a little cough here and there.
The ulcer, treated with some NASTY meds, is managed now. I have two more weeks of one of the meds I am on, but one of the two antibiotics they had me on made a nasty taste in my mouth. I was eating mints ALL THE TIME! It was awful! God graciously allowed me NOT to gain any weight even though I was sucking NON-stop on Wintergreen Lifesavers. Anything else was wreaking havoc with my stomach and causing pain…go figure! I mean 24/7 for two weeks of being on Biaxin, I was sucking on those! Even in the dead of night! Can you believe it? I bet my teeth are rotting out of my head! LOL!
Anyhow, this ulcer stuff sure challenged the old “gotta eat 0 to 5 or else” mentality. I learned that God can perform HIS will in my life even when I have no guidelines to fall back on!
Right now, I am trying to prepare for sharing my testimony at the Thin Within conference. I am just not sure what to share…so prayers are most appreciated. I want it to be whatever God wants it to be…and I want HIS Word to be what predominates…not my story…My story is really quite empty. But HIS is wonderful, deep, sustaining, lasting, fulfilling.
I need my bed. I hope to post while I am at the conference. That would be fun!
I don’t have a CLUE what to wear! I am a jeans, t-shirt and baseball cap type of gal, but I suppose that wouldn’t be a good idea! LOL!
Yup – Still lurking here as always! 🙂 I’m so proud you’re going to give your testimony. There are so many who will benefit. Just make sure to be yourself no matter what you decide to wear! LOLWill be keeping you in prayer! ((hugs))
I’m here, too, Heidi — reading faithfully! ;o)Glad to hear you’re healing… prayers going up for that to continue. And, for safe travels, too! Hope you have a blast at the conference (and wish I could be there!). :-)< "Mizbooks"
