Good News Bad News

Standard

Good News

I gained 10 pounds (108 from 98), hair is not longer-but is thicker, feel less fatigue and more joy, no joint pain at all…overall just feeling better.

Bad News

Hair still is breaking-may be early menopause more than Lupus, immune system is struggling to not get sick, latest bloodwork shows the kidneys are still full of protein despite a month of medication, I now have triple the cholesterol that I should have due to the protein.

We are upping the meds and giving it time, so keep the prayers coming.

Stop Going to Google and Start Going to God

Standard

I do it every time.

Hear a diagnosis then Google it to death.

What I really struggle with is fear, control, the unknown and what-ifs.

God has the answer.

When will I learn to start with Him?

He knows, He cares, He loves.

The end.

Church

Standard

What do you think of when I say the word church? Joy? Good people? Pain? Hypocrisy? Unspoken?

So many thoughts…none of them wrong, but I think of home. My go to place each Wednesday and Sunday. My first boyfriend and best friend. Youth group hang outs and camps. People that prayed.

Sure it is full of broken people and sinners, but that is why I fit in so well. My brokenness is welcome here and yours should be too. My youth church closed its doors this past Sunday. Church is not a place, but still sad I cannot go back to visit the building where I was baptized. Happy to have my family with me this Easter. Hope my son has all I had in a church home and more. If you feel a certain way about church, I encourage you to try again. It is worth it.
