Wednesday night. My motto: it’s important to not rush too far ahead in our minds, assuming we know a future which we cannot yet see clearly. Just another way to say: we must continue to take one day at a time, resting in the knowledge that God is still in control.
Today was a “catch-up” day for me: catching up with laundry, that is. Our building has a very large room in the basement which is chock-full of washers and dryers. Amazingly, those machines seem to stay in constant use — it makes me wonder if Wednesday is “wash day” or something…? Well, it seems that was the case today. Then again, when I’ve done wash on Sunday afternoon, Monday night, Saturday afternoon…. those seemed to also be “wash day.” It’s a busy place.
Tomorrow Rob will have another blood draw to determine his blood counts. He said today that he feels some soreness, recognizing that this has happened before when his blood counts were rising. Tomorrow will prove whether that is true in this instance. Also, he will soon start the pre-op evaluations, tests, etc. The plan is to meet with the surgeon next Monday to discuss some of the specifics of his upcoming surgery, scheduled for about two weeks from now. But again, not wanting to rush ahead, we’ll continue to enjoy each day as best we can.
2 Corinthians 4:16 16 Therefore we do not lose heart….. inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
