75% Better . . . and I'll Take It
I left my house today . . . and it wasn't to go visit the Doctor!!

Went to church this morning.

Good and bad decision. I decided this after the first song began blaring in my head.

Imagine you are Ariel from Little Mermaid, thrust back to life under the sea -- yet you are still a human.

That's my situation right now. I am getting sound in my ear, but it all sounds like it is "Under the Sea." When the choir began to sing this morning, I wanted to cry from the cacophony of sound rattling around in my head.

Thankfully Libbyline came and joined us, which caused us to find a seat further back. In addition, we sat next to a friend who is a doctor.

That miracle man suggested I put some cotton in my ear for protection/insulation from the sound. No cotton handy, but a clean piece of white tissue did the trick. I was able to tolerate, no, enjoy the rest of the service and hear God speak through the songs and the sermon. What a powerful day of God showing up!

That was only the beginning.

After that we headed for a family lunch and then I proceeded to collapse in bed for a much-needed respite.

DP woke me up in time to let the bed wrinkles subside somewhat from my face while we got ready to go to an unexpected treat he'd discovered while on a jaunt with the kids yesterday.

We had the pleasure of sitting under the ministry and music of Shaun Groves tonight at a local college event. We thoroughly enjoyed his concert and had a chance to talk with him afterwards about our sponsorship of Juana through Compassion.

If you haven't gone to his site as a result of all Shannon has shared via her trip to Uganda with Shaun and a number of others, please head on over and check out some of his archives regarding his work with Compassion. God is changing lives, and He is using Shaun as a messenger to do so. Pray with him and for him if you feel led. We sure do.

So, I am feeling about 75% better than I did all last week.

I am still easily tired and really looking forward to getting back on dry land in the hearing department, but God is so good. I certainly cannot complain when I would rather praise Him for all He has done for me.

So, I will praise Him for:
He is worthy to be praised!!

On His Adventure~

Oh, honey, I'm SO glad you are on the mend. You are a real trooper! Doesn't surprise me at all that you would seek out His comfort despite your own discomfort! *wink* Hope your week just gets better and better!
