Just when you think you know...

I love the saying:
"You want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans." I was reading through my journal last night and I broke my foot on Saturday, November 1, 2008. Well almost 3 months later I thought that I was fine. I mean my foot hurt a bit after I got the walking cast off but I really did not think about it that much.
I thought that things were back to normal and while I knew that I needed to be careful, I started excercising again and doing things too soon. I thought it would be fine even when my foot started to hurt I would just wait it out and then go back to being active.
This went on for awhile; untill the pain started to get too much to bear...that is when I went back to the doctor. I had a million plans and then I learned that I probably had a stress fracture last week. Back came the boot (walking cast) and I was sent for a bone scan. THe bonescan took an entire morning. It was incredibly boring :) It was kinda cool though cause I had a good talk with the technicians. Anywho, so I went back to the doctors yesterday and found out that I do not have a stress fracture. Good news right?
Heh, then I found out that I had nerve damage.
Nerve Damage:
~Pain Medicine:
It knocks me out. I took a 3 1/2 hour nap today and woke up absolutely exhausted still! It dulls the pain though which is a good thing considering that last night I was in tears because it felt like my right foot from the knee down was on fire. It hurt worse then when I broke it!
~Walking boot is back on.
~Physical Therapy:
I loved it. I went for the 1st time today and they are all so nice and the Doctor gave me excercises to do 2x's a day which will help get back my strength, mobility and help with the pain.
~I have to ice it 3x's a day (whoops haven't done that yet)
~I am off work for 3 weeks. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! That will be the hardest thing for me I think...most people would love it, but I have such a short attention span so it will be interesting.

So yeah, it was a rough day yesterday :-p I am happy though cause this means that I will be able to spend so much time with the Lord and with my family...It will be good :)
Oh, and you will probably be hearing from me alot in the next 3 weeks :-p
Blessings to you all!

Our day with Aly and some of the Wyoming Youth Group Kids

A quick update ;0)

Hey all!
So, it has been a long long time since I have actually updated with what is going on in my life.
LOTS has been going on! So here we go...

#1: The shift key on my computor has kinda broke and while I can sort of deal with it not working all the time (it has its moments) if drives me up the wall especially since I am prone to use it quite alot!

#2: I got the most awesome God-given oppurtunity to be able to write for an up and coming girls magazine that is due out hopefully this spring/summer. It is going to be put out by a group of people from a huge church in Denver, CO and we are praying that it will be able to reach this entire nation. So, I am in the midst of writing 2 articles (one I already had done). I am so excited about this oppurtunity to lift up Christ and His glory! I am praying that it will challenge and motivate girls to recklessly abandon their lives to Christ. We shall see what happens :)

#3: We have really been getting incredibly close to the Wyoming Church Youth Group. It is so awesome to have kids our age that are constantly pushing and encouraging us towards the Lord. We all went to the cafe this past saturday after they spent the whole day with us. THAT WAS A TON OF FUN!!!! I am going to do a post with pics from it :)

#4: Well...bad news about the foot. I went back to the doctors yesterday because my foot had really been bothering me and had never really healed. Plus the fact that I went a little bit overboard...like running on a treadmill. YES I ADMIT IT! I paid for it too! Anywho, so I found out I probably have a stress fracture...sigh. I had a bone scan today and will find out the results tomorrow...so yeah, prayer would be appreciated :)

#5: I HAVE AN AWESOME OPPURTUNITY THIS SUMMER!!!!! I have been accepted to be a counselor at Camp Lamoka for about 2 1/2 months this summer :) I am really really excited to see how the Lord works! So yeah, I am very excited :)

And you are now up to date!
Blessings to you all :)

Lady in Waiting...

"Lady in Waiting
is not about finding the right man,
but becoming the right woman.
The lady in waiting
recklessly abandons herself
to the Lordship of Christ,
diligently uses her single days,
trusts God with unwavering faith,
demonstrates virtue in daily life,
loves God with UNRESTRICTED devotion,
stands for physical and emotional purity,
lives in security,
responds to life in contentment,
makes choices based on her convictions,
and waits patiently for God
to meet her needs."

"We are not created to complete another but to complement. Completion is Jesus' responsibility and complementing is a woman's privilege. A woman not complete in Jesus will be a drain on her husband. Such a woman will expect her husband to fill the gap that only Jesus can fill."

A dear friend (thanks Aly :-p) gave me a wonderful book entitled "Lady in Waiting" and I was reading it and these quotes really stuck out to me...so I thought I would share them :)

Hiding God's Word in my heart

The girls at Beth Moore's blog (the LPM blog in my links) have challenged us to memorize a new passage of Scripture every two weeks for a total of 24 passages this year. I am currently on my 2nd passage!
My passage of scripture for January 15st through January 31st is:

Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.

Psalm 37:5-8 (NKJV)
