He leads me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:2b
I was supposed to be at CTCA this week receiving my last treatment. However, my blood counts did not want to come up high enough for me to be able to leave on time. I am now scheduled for the 28th and 29th, so we will be leaving on Sunday the 27th. Despite my low counts, I have felt really good this week. The weather has been beautiful and I have been trying to take every advantage of being outside. I went fishing with Mike and my dad a couple of times these last few days. I took this picture of the lake that we went to. I was reminded of this part of Psalm... the water was so calm. I have also gone to Sunny Lake a few times. It's no secret that Sunny Lake is my favorite place to walk. There is a path that goes all the way around and it totals 1.7 miles. Part of it goes through the woods, and you can see the lake almost the entire way around. It is so peaceful and also nostalgic as that was the last place that Jeff ever ran. The tree that was planted there for him is starting to get some green leaves on it. I am hoping that they bloom into flowers soon. I will make sure to post a picture of it as soon as it blooms.
Heath wise, this is the best I have felt in a really long time. It's almost like I felt like the wind was knocked out of me for a few years. I am just now realizing what it feels like to breathe again. Just seven months ago, I had a hard time even thinking ahead to the holidays. Now, I have the opportunity to see a light at the end of this and I can start thinking about the rest of my life. I had a dream the other night that I was telling people about how God healed me. I looked over and saw Jeff sitting there, and I said "Now it's your turn, Jeff!" I will always have a hard time knowing that Jeff and I could not celebrate this together, but then I think about what Heaven will be like. He is probably wishing even more that we were all there to celebrate what he is experiencing! I know we will celebrate there.
I love that God is leading me beside the still waters. Leading me. But I will always be thankful that He carried me through the rough water.
Here are a couple of pictures from Sunny Lake. Olivia is on the left and Emily is on the right.
