Hey all...I thought I would take a crack at contributing to Heidi's blog, seeing as she is a little out of commission today.
A lot has happened since Thursday last week that's for sure.
- nausea - check
- dizziness - check
- vomiting - check
- indigestion - check
- anxiety - check
- extreme fatigue - check
- sensitivity to smells - check
- tears - check
- bits of bananas, Ginger Ale, oatmeal, water - check
- Canucks' game 5 win over Bruins - check
What a strange thing it is to go into the hospital feeling great - sit in a chair, get put on a drip for a few hours - go home and everything changes. It's like instant flu of the worst sort. These few days have taken their toll.
Today we celebrate the vomiting subsiding and Heidi's appetite slowly returning. This morning Ana read these verses for us all as a declaration of what is truly real.
So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever. (2 Cor 4:16-17)
Blog title comes from my good friend Ryan whose mom had those words on the wall in their house as he grew up.
