Beauty in Struggle

By the mercy of God

I had friends over for dinner last night.

*

My family hopes to get me home for Christmas.

It snowed last night; the cross street was

lit wet and sunshine blazing together.

Health wise
it will take sometime to see if I will improve.
I now have the heavy duty drugs
to relieve what I have now termed
'the volcanic eruption on my face'
*
I have done research on it
(sorry not going into detail as I do not feel like my blog
coming up on google searches for medical
details)
and there should be no lasting effects.
*
But right now I don't fully look myself,
to say it in a gentle understatement.
*
Yet I remain convinced of the gentleness and goodness of God.
Let us remain with such a God
who gave Himself for us.
*
Blessed soon weekend to all!

Your table looks wonderful! I'm glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving. We woke up to snow here as well; it's a great way to get in the winter spirit! I hope your drugs help and that you aren't in any discomfort. Have a good rest of the day!

Praying that the drugs help and the duration is short!

And that you get home for Christmas!
