I Think I Might Need Sunglasses

When I ask to see you, Lord, it is almost more than I can take in. It is all coming at me so fast I've got to write it down or I will forget. Yesterday as I was led to finally write to S&V and ask them for their prayer and their counsel. Then to get a response so quickly. They know exactly where we are in our marriage. They've been there and they give me hope. Thank you, Lord that S will make contact with Don.

I've been praying that God would show me just the right counselor that we all need. For now it will just be the kids and I but in time maybe Don will be open to it also. Anyway, I've not felt led to anyone that's been suggested. Just didn't get that "feeling" that this is the one. Today I open our local "what's new in town" and on the front page an article about a new christian counselor. She specializes in all the things we need. ALL the things. I've emailed her (it's Saturday) and she's responded twice already.

I told her about my illness and that I might not be able to keep an appointment. I told her I have "bilateral vestibular neuritis" and it leaves me in a state of almost constant imbalance. And do you know what she says? She says..."I know someone else with the same situation, Bless You"" WHOA!!!! What are the chances of that? Zero. Unless of course God is on your team.

Keep my eyes open Lord. I don't want to miss a single thing. You are amazing! Thanks for still caring about me after all the time I spent only caring about myself. Thanks for allowing me the privilege of parenting those two amazing kids. Thanks for helping D to open up to me today on what he's feeling. Keep my eyes open Lord!
