Peace, Trust and Rest
My hubby is with me at the lake peacefully sleeping right at this moment, he was able to climb 5 mountains in total and has many pictures to share, I will be posting some here at some point. He had a fabulous week, some exciting moments, some stressful but mostly pure blissful mountain top exhilarating moments seeing the world from above. I am so thankful that he is safe and that he was protected during this trip. He is already dreaming of the next one and wanting me to join him (yeah that may take a miracle!!!)
Noah's appointment went well I also have a few pictures of him during his EEG on my dinky camera and since I forgot to take the cord with me to the lake I will have to wait to post those till tomorrow. The test as far as I know went well, they had him sleep for most of it and I will not have the results of that test until on or around the 26th, I am still praying that the results will be good.
Life seems to take a whole lot of trust, moments and situations that are so out of my control that I have to just trust and believe that God has it all taken care of. Some people ask me how I could send Conrad away on climbing adventures even though there have been times of trouble and my response to that is, why would I keep him from what he loves to do? and God does a way better job at taking care of him than I do so I just pray and choose to trust and believe that things will turn out good in the end...and so far so good!!
The 'rest' part doesn't come so easy to me, I don't realise that I am stressed out until I am up in the pounds department, leaning on food to give me comfort during times when things are out of my control. This summer has taken a toll on me that I am not proud of, I know that God wants me to rely on Him for rest and comfort and not in the food.....why is this so hard?! It seems that I have tried and failed more times than I can count and this leads to incredible frustration and more fear of failure at some point I hope to get my act together and move on from this once and for all!!...... 'I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!!!"
