Tomorrow Is Another Day

A tree fell on our house today. It is the kind of thing that happens when you are minding your own business, waiting on your appointment with the specialist to consult about your fourth round of thyroid cancer. I am filled with disbelief. It is times like these when I say, Really!? I mean REALLY!? This is how it is gonna be? You know how it is when you think you are at your stress limit. Last week just for the fun of it I took the Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory. I have experienced lots of change in the past year and just needed a bit of affirmation. So yes, with the score of more than 300 points I have an 80% chance of a health breakdown in the next two years. This was not exactly the results I was looking for. I just wanted it to say yes you have had a lot going on and we understand how you feel. Bless your heart. Did I mention there a tree is pressed against the window behind me? The tree wasn’t even included in the list. It is a good thing I have resources. I know the end of the story. In John 16 Jesus gave the disciples a promise, “I have told you these things so that you will have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” In this world I am having a bit of trouble. The kind of never-ending stuff that life just keeps tossing out. But now I take heart! I leave you with a picture of the tree in happier days hanging out with our black snake, Snake. In the words of Scarlett O’Hara, tomorrow is another day.

In faith, Deanna

  1. As you remind all of us, “it could have been worse” I pray that your days become lighter as you travel this journey. Myself, I try to remember not “why “, instead “why not”. Each time I’m at KHO God shows me that I’m blessed in so many ways that I don’t acknowledge every day. I know one thing for sure, I’m blessed to know you and will continue to lift you up in prayers!!! So I’m just so thankful you are sharing with all of us.

  2. I will give you what you want or at least try……You have definitely had alot going on this year and not much of it falls into the good column. Seriously, a tree?? Well bless your heart Deanna. I totally feel you. None of this is fair! Enough is enough!! There is at least one thing I have observed in the good category. You look more beautiful than ever and radiate God’s love. Thank you for sharing your heart!

  3. Want you to know I am thinking about you today, about your faith, your posts, your thyroid issues, your tree, the snake and your plans. I bet you are missing your tree and maybe even the snake and the times you did not have health worries! Many prayers and wishes for a good treatment plan with less stress ahead for beautiful you! Looking forward to your next post!
