John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give  :  not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

It’s been quite a few days since I have posted.  I have 2 excuses.  I felt pretty crummy. 1. Looking at the computer seemed to make me feel even more nauseous. 2. My computer was having some trouble and I had to uninstall a virus protection and reinstall a new one.  And I just wasn’t up to it.  I have begun to feel better the past few days.

Yesterday was grand-baby Eddie’s first birthday. Stephanie had one of his preemie sleepers hanging up on a little clothes line next to his sleepers that he now wears.  Soooo itty bitty and soooo big.  How time flies.  We had lots of Mac’s good cooking for supper…pulled pork, hamburgers, and hot dogs.  Stephanie made Eddie’s giant cupcake and regular sized for the rest of us.  Yum Yum.

Jesse’s wife, Traci also tried real hard to have our first granddaughter yesterday.  She was at the hospital about 8 hrs. but labor seemed to slow down, and she’s home now.  I know Traci is miserable and just wants to hold Josie in her arms…’s hard to wait.  She still is having contractions, so remember her in your prayers, and Jesse too

.I did not chill as bad with this round of chemo as I did the last time, I was just nauseous, achy, and a little more tired.  I know so many prayed that I wouldn’t have the chills and aches….and let me say “thank you”  cause the aches are a lot easier to handle without the chills.   Traci got me a book called “Praying Through Cancer” and it’s 90 days of devotions.  John 14:27 was one of the verses mentioned in today’s devotion.  The devotion talked about panic verses peace.  But, it had been a while since I had read this verse, and read this verse so many times when Steve was deployed and it just seemed to speak right to that situation in my life then.  How beautiful that it has a completely different meaning now and still can bring me peace. I got to thinking that it’s interesting that Jesus says “let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”  My heart is troubled and full of worries and is afraid…..when I let it be.  I am so thankful the Lord helps me to overcome the troublesome worries and fears.  Unfortunately I keep taking them back, I think this may be one of those times I need to write the specific worries down and stick them in an envelope labeled ‘Jesus’ to remind myself that He wants to carry our burdens.

    Hey Anette,
    School is out and the kids and I are looking to fill our days with fun and good friends. I can’t wait to come and sit and enjoy good company. I hate to invite myself over but I am in need of a tea with a friend and some peaceful conversation. Prayers and love go out to you. I will call you soon.
