we are forever being amazed at how folks allow God to use them to bless us. it is humbling. this road is hard, painful, challenging and yes, a lot of the time, it feels like EVERYTHING is going wrong and this nightmare will NEVER end...yet, blessings are undeniably intertwined through out this road we travel. they serve as the shimmering beacons of light...and when i focus on the hope, faith and love they represent, their sheen outshines the darkest parts of this journey. yes, the blessings are many. THAT is truth. my heart believes that. it is the journey from heart to mind that can get a little tricky - the roadblocks along the way can sidetrack me from the standing in the truth.
speaking of roadblocks...one last thing.
this has nothing to do with air travel
but it has everything to do with delays and complications.
the day before we left for SF, we received a phone call from the hospital where parker's MRI is scheduled for dec 11. the hospital was calling to CANCEL the appointment because they had a flood.
i kid you not.
no back up plan was offered. the situation is complicated as this is the only hospital that does MRI's on children - aside from children's hospital - which we do not feel is a safe option.
this means we may now need to incur the cost of paying for a private MRI.
it is ridiculous. parker's MRI is marked as URGENT. suspected encephalitis is on the requisition.
please be in prayer for this.
even as we sat in the airport awaiting our flight, we were making phone calls to try and get this sorted out.
it shouldn't be so hard.
we had such trouble securing this MRI appointment to begin with
and then a flood happens?
what are the chances?
for some reason, God continues to allow us to walk the road less travelled.
at the moment, my mind is semi-panicked over the details
but i choose to believe God will work this one out too.
he ALWAYS does
