Okay, so P was talking about forgiveness on her blog... let me tell you about the revelation I had at women of faith.
Sandy Patti... I guess several years ago had an affair... here she was singing about Christ's love, preaching it to people and having an affair while doing it! I thought... Lord, if she can fall someone who is living your word everyday, if she can fall WHAT MAKES ME THINK I'M EXEMPT?! If she can fall (this fine upstanding christian lady) than SURELY I too will fall daily. It all just clicked to me, it all just made sense to me, and if she could be forgiven for singing his praises while sinning then I could be forgiven! It was the most amazing freedom I have ever felt! Funny, because the title of the conference was amazing freedom. And you know what, I was changed, I was healed from a thought that the Lord gave me. It wasn't something she or any one else said. It was a word from the Lord planted into my heart and mind. I know I am forgiven! I know I am loved! And I also know that the Lord uses me! I also know that the Lord will use my experiences of sin as a testimony to His greatness!
If we are obedient to the Lord He will open the windows of blessings and pour out onto us and He also moves us to another level in our relationship with Him. I don't know alot of scripture by heart... but I do know Psalm 30:5 we will cry tears at night but our joy will come in the morning. Trust in the Lord put your full faith in Him and HE WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN!
Okay, so now onto the mundane of life...
I went to the ENT with my xrays (finally)! I have to have surgery. The passageway between my nose and into my cheeks is completely blocked and full of polups (sp?). So, he's going to go in and recontruct those passageways. I am pushing the surgery back to the fall when I will have some more vacation time. I will have to be off work for a week. Then after surgery I will still have to see an allergist. Geesh... I so didn't see this coming. I'm not upset or worried or anything, just bummed about having to be in terrible pain for a week AND because I'm going to have to rely on people to help me do things and I HATE to rely on anyone because I have such high expectations I'm usually disappointed. That would be the perfectionist in me.
My dad brought up my kitchen island that he built for me. OMG!! It is so beautiful! He did such an amazing job. He's so awesome. I just love him! It's a truly beautiful piece of furniture. I'll try to post a couple of pics of it but you have to know... it does not do it justice!
He made the spice rack on the side and that papertowel holder on the side, can you imagine being able to look at a block of wood and making that out of it? I sure can't!
Anyways... happy Friday and happy Spiderman 3 day. My son will probably pee himself in excitement before the day is up! LOL!!
