2 Years & 232 Days: The Shepherd

Last week at Women of Faith, there was one illustration that really stood out to me. Sheila Walsh talked about Jesus as our Shepherd and told of how the Israel shepherds would take care of their sheep. They would lead them where they wanted them to go. If one of the lambs got stuck, the shepherd would go back and find the lamb, lift him on his shoulders and carry him for a while. Isn't that a beautiful image, one of Jesus carrying us on his shoulders when we get stuck?

2 years & Days 225-231: Health Issues

Well, true confession time. I have been feeling awful for a really long time. I kept putting it off to stress, thinking it would get better. I did talk to the doctor about it when I got checked up last year, including the fact that my breathing had been terrible, it seems like I am always wheezing. So earlier this week, I went to talk to the preacher. He suggested that I go see the doctor again to rule out anything physical including getting my hormone levels checked. So I went today and the nurse immediately noticed my wheezing and commented on it. So now I have a nebulizer machine and medicine, along with a handful of other prescriptions to try and combat that. I also have an appointment to get my allergies tested (and I can't take my OTC Claritin from now until that appointment). So again, I am asking for some prayers that we can figure out what's going on and I can feel good again. Oh and I will find out how all the blood work turned out tomorrow or next Tuesday.
