Thankful for it all…

What a wonderful 2018 Christmas! A season full of blessings after a rough fall for David… for all of us. His “mysterious lung mass” was still hanging on after 2.5 months of antibiotic infusions! Amazingly his Dr allowed him to travel to Italy in October for a family wedding.

Most astounding was after that round of oral medication, his follow-up CT came back completely clear!! A miraculous healing no one could explain. It was simply a gift given. The infection remains unknown.

Just when I wanted to rest in the peace of his recovery and get back to a normal schedule… we were thrown into chaos over medical coverage with our “sharing program.” Negotiations with physicians and hospitals and laboratories took me hours of paperwork and phone calls each day.

Then, right before Christmas, another miracle came. One I can hardly describe other than to say: God intervened. An executive was directly contacted, strings were pulled, funds were sent and a ginormous bill was paid.

I still don’t understand the why of all these stresses and strains… why another illness & hospital stay… or why the crazy haggling over accounts and bills. Really?? I’ve just stopped guessing. I’ve let it be. He is God, He loves us.

That He knows -is enough. I will choose to be Thankful for it all.

I know You hear me. I don’t need to know why – only that You know the way. That’s enough. I do ask, please use it, LORD. In Jesus’ name.
