So glad you stopped by for another week of Then Sings My Soul. I'm posting a little early because we are having a birthday party for Mary Lyndsey tomorrow. We also have a Birthday party to attend. Don't you just love it when everyone in your child's class has a birthday in the same month?! We get hit in September and October and don't have any time to recover before Christmas... and Spencer's birthday is in December. I'll be buying presents for the next three months.
Anyway, before I talk about the song I'm posting this week, I'd like to ask for your continued prayers for Spencer. We just had another seizure about an hour ago. We didn't have to use the rescue med because it backed off. I'm holding my breath tonight that we don't seize again. I really do not want to take another trip to the hospital. It hasn't even been a week since we were there. And... I really don't want to interrupt Mary Lyndsey's party tomorrow for her sake. I think she already feels like Spencer gets more attention sometimes.
For those of you who have been praying for us to get an earlier Dr.'s appointment... your prayers were answered. We got a phone call today and they were able to get us in October 1 instead of October 27. Keep praying for no more seizures. Also be in prayer for us to have wisdom about some upcoming decisions about his treatment.
OK... I know you came by for the TSMS post, so here it is...
The song I'm posting this week is "On My Knees" by Jaci Velasquez. This used to be one of my favorite songs. I was reminded of it this week as I've tried to spend more time in prayer.
You might remember a few weeks ago I talked about being "prayed out" or just tired of praying. Well, it's interesting that about that time, I started having trouble with my right knee. I can't even hardly walk up and down the stairs in my house without being in major pain. I used to laugh at my grandmother and my mother-in-love when they complained about having to walk up and down the stairs in my house. Now I know why they avoided it. I went to a PTA meeting at Spencer's school on Thursday night and it was downstairs.... down a lot of stairs :-) I started to look for the elevator because I almost couldn't bear the thought of the pain I knew I was going to experience going down them.
Sometimes when I'm walking, it is almost as if my knees are going to give out and buckle underneath me and I am going to hit the floor. I have to wonder if it isn't God trying to tell me to "get on my knees" and if I continue to be so rebellious as to not spend some more time there, He will put me there. See, I've been trying to stay busy and distracted instead of dealing with some issues head on with God. He does have a way of getting out attention doesn't He?!
So, I guess Jaci says it best... the way to survive in laughter and in pain is to be on your knees.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend!
