It has been quite the ride for me over the last seven months. At the moment, I am in a state of waiting. This is a state of impatience at nauseam that is both mind-boggling and heart wrenching. Over the last few days I have had some tests done at the cardiologist. I am praying and pleading for the outcome I want.
Today I am hoping to hear back from my doctor with those test results. It is a fine, tightrope of a line that I find myself on. One result will mean another open heart surgery, and probably soon. The other will send me back to the drawing board where I have been for the last 10 months. I am more fearful of the latter. Isn’t that something… Continue reading “Wonder Woman & The Waiting Game”
“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
– Joshua 1:9
It’s been a while since I have had much to say. This blog was created as a place so I could share my story with other congenital heart patients. Being one of the oldest living patients with my condition, I tend to be some what of a rarity. Sometimes it’s really cool. Other times it can be quite intimidating. 2016 has actual knocked me on my strong little bum more than once. The beauty is, this little lady never stays down very long.
I do have to say the last two months however, have opened my eyes to an entirely new world. Our world, this big fantastic place full of so much wonder, seems to be in so much turmoil. It’s actually very heartbreaking. When you realize how short and precious life really is, it should be about finding your joy.

So why do we spend centuries fighting, hating and arguing? I think in part it has to do with fear. We are all afraid of something. Of dying, or not finding our love, our happiness or of being heard.

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.” – 1 Peter 1:8
Can I tell you that lately I have been feeling amazing?!! Really! I feel the best I have in my entire life. I have been in the gym like a BEAST. Like a real girl, with a whole heart! God is so good. Joy is pumping in my veins and my spirit like a rush of adrenaline right before you drop in a roller coaster ride. I am on fire and I can’t say enough happy things. Continue reading “Pumped Full of Joy”
Verse of the Day:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. – Ephesians 6:10-11
When do you feel the Brave? This question was posed on the Wordpess Daily Post by Scott Berkun. When I saw this question I thought I don’t know if I ever “feel” brave. I have often been told that I am brave or that I have been brave but I don’t know if in a moment I have ever “felt” brave. Have you?
