Yesterday was Pop's birthday. We went to see him yesterday evening. It is the first time I have been down there in weeks because I haven't been feeling good enough. Lex drove me and the boys down there last night. We ate at Rogerland and it took forever. Connie had to recook our food because they didn't do it right. We were wondering why it took so long.
Pop didn't say much last night which means he isn't feeling well. I feel awful for not being down there in so long. I love pop and gram. I don't like them being old.

Gallbladder, pizza, and bowling

I know that is a weird title, but it does describe our evening. First, Rayne and I got allergy shots. While at the doctor's office, I found out I may have to have my gallbladder out!!!!! My ultrasound showed slugge(?) in my gallbladder. Lovely.
After the doctor's office we went to eat pizza at steffie's, where I ate a grilled chicken salad and two small bread sticks. No, greasy food for my gallbladder. (It is hurting as I write this so the bread sticks must have been too greasy.)
Next, we went to BAM so rance could spend some birthday money, and then we went bowling. I didn't bowl because of my back, but did take pictures. It was a fun evening together!!!!

I got to meet Michelle Duggar!

Anyone that knows me knows how much I enjoy watching 18 Kids and Counting. Not only is the family from Arkansas, I know that I never have to worry about what will be on their show. They are christians, and their program is very uplifting. I record it so that I can watch it whenever I want. Somedays I feel really bad and don't even want to read. Or some nights I can't sleep no matter how hard I try. These are examples of when I might be feeling a little depressed and watching their program always helps. They are always upbeat and positive and love to share the Lord.
Weeeelll, I met Michelle and her mother-in-law at Kymberly's homeschool association's monthly meeting Thursday night. I even got to talk to the baby, Jordan-Grace, and make her smile. She is so cute and friendly. Michelle was the guest speaker
and did a really good job.
Afterwards, Michelle signed our books. It was a great evening. (I know this is a horrible picture of me, but I had to post it anyway. )

Answered Prayer

I feel unwell everyday of my life to some degree, but tonight I have been feeling unusually ill. I couldn't sleep because I was sick to my stomach even after taking med for it. When I would get up, I felt weak and shaky. This went on for several hours until I finally remembered to pray about it. Why is that so often the last thing I think of? Why do I still think I can control everything? And why do I still get so surprised when God answers my prayer. A very short while after praying, I realized I feel better. Why does that surprise me. God loves me no matter what. He doesn't want to see me suffer. His love is greater than I can ever imagine. He has answered so many of my desperate prayers, and it surprises me every time.
He deserves so much more than my desperate prayers. He deserves all of me.
God is good always. Even when he doesn't answer in the way we want him to, He is always good and always worthy of praise.
