Jan 2011

I wanted to start the new year with a wonderful blog but I forgot my password.  I tried for several days to retrieve it, but had absolutely no luck….. today my doctor’s office called me to tell me that my insurance was terminated. Mind you I have another surgery coming up this month, I had chemo yesterday and have another treatment coming up in  3 weeks…. so, it was kinda like the straw that really pressed down  on the camels back…

There I was .. crying, rushing, and panicking on the phone talking to the insurance company trying to find my paper work and guess what???- I found the password to my blog site... now I can write again…I always look for the good in everything and  something good did come out of that straw..

But back to the insurance chaos ..I now am uninsured … I walked to my back door, looked up to the sky and told God, I know.. I know.. .you got this, (we talk like that)  but I was still crying.. then I thought of Christ on the cross and how He cried out…so I didn’t feel bad about crying.. as I always say, it’s OK to cry…just don’t stay lost in the tears..

Now I am talking with what seemed like 7million14thousand3hundred and 2 people.. and the last of 1 of the 2 people I talked with told me.. it is going to be ok.. you are insured .. you are ok.. Whew..

Now what was I going to tell you at the beginning of the year.. 2011… well now I can’t remember… it is 7 days into 2011, 7 whole days, 24 hours in each of those day and a whole bunch of minutes have passed… and remember I was trying to remember my password…

So I guess the best thing to say is Happy New Year and I pray the best for you this year.  May you feel all of Gods wonderful blessings he has reserved for you in your blessings box in Heaven.  May you remember to be thankful for each of those blessings.. big and small… May your pockets be filled with more than dust bunnies and may you remember me when they overflow.. (thought I would toss that one in just for good measure.)

Last year was a challenge for many of us.. the biggie for me was CANCER..  I haven’t figured out what God wanted me to learn from that but this is what I took from it:


C is for Challenges.. of which we all have had many.

A is for Angle.. I had to decide what angle I would take as I looked at this challenge.

N is for Navigation .. I had to consider how I was going to navigate the angle of my challenge.

C is for Cruising … I decided to cruise with God as I navigated each angle of this challenge, that was the only way I could honestly keep a good attitude and encourage you to get over your challenges.

E is for Energy… I knew the Energy to cruise with God as I navigated each angle of this challenge would come directly from God and His people.

R is for Rejoicing… one thing I had to keep focused on is rejoicing with that energy as I cruised with God while I navigated each angle of this Cancer Challenge. Rejoicing helped me get to the next place in a much better space.

So there you go, my first Blog for 2011 … after finding my password.  That’s just like life.. sometimes you have to find the right thing to restart your path.  I hope you find yours..

Enjoy The Ride (ETR)
