Happy Friday! And hello to the first full week of February 2016.
It rained a couple days this week, and I became obsessed with getting close ups of the details.
How about a neck recap? I went to see the neurologist, and it turns out one of my discs is degenerated. Means it is smaller and not as strong as the others, for some reason, thus creating the pinching pain in my neck. My poor nerves are having to overwork themselves and they are simply not having it, I guess. Two months of physical therapy, maybe some cross training, and a new sleeping arrangement (still brainstorming this one), to hopefully avoid surgery in the long run.
“So I wrote. I wrote as though God thought my voice mattered. I wrote because I believed a human story was beautiful, no matter how small the human was. I wrote because I didn’t make myself, God did. And I wrote like he’d invited me to share my true “self” with the world.” Donald Miller, Scary Close
I am borderline obsessed with this quote. It screams freedom, don’t you think? Freedom, love, beauty, and humility.
Pork chops my friend! Oh yeah. Easy and delicious, my favorite combination.
—- I’m grateful for:
The beautiful reality that in the Gospel, in Christ, I don’t have to be happy, or strong, or positive 24/7. I can be frustrated, disappointed, even bummed, and it’s okay. Hallelujah that my God is an emotional God, and embraces me in any moment when I turn to him.
