I didn't sleep too well last night, still awake at 1:30 this morning, that is the last thing I remember, up to the bathroom at 4am, back to sleep and awake for good at 6:30 am with 2 babies climbing into Gamma's bed. They were so sweet! I was just so sleepy! Val made pancakes for breakfast. I ate them, they were pretty good. Next thing I went to Bowling Green around 11am and before I got where I was going, I had another of those episodes just like the last time I ate pancakes, arms and legs so weak I could barely drive, trembling, very clammy, my clothes and hair were wet from the sweating, then I looked in the mirror, face very pale with a pale "ring" around my mouth. I pulled into McDonald's drive through and got a frozen strawberry lemonade, I thought with all the sugar that has to have in it surely I would feel better quickly. I pulled over and drank that and after 15 minutes I was still very trembly. I decided to go into Riley's bakery and got a chicken salad sandwich. That took another 10 minutes to make me feel better. Why does this not happen to me when I can have my blood sugar checked? I am fine now.
While I was driving to town, I was thinking about all the sadness in the community over the past few weeks. The young man Jacob Irwin, a friend at work's son and nephew, a friend at work's cousin, another friend at work's father-in-law, a high school friend, a mother/daughter co-worker's mother/grandmother, some died from cancer, some from accidents, some other reasons, and the one thing that is common is they are all feeling loss and grief. And they all have one thing in common, a loving God to comfort them. There is more sickness out there. We never know when the next time we said bye to someone will be their last. remember to tell them how you feel! And remember your friends, neighbors, relatives, everyone in prayer!
1 Corinthians 13You know, this has nothing to do with what I was writing, but it is what I needed to post. I do love this scripture....but as I re-read it, it is perfect. As it should be!
1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
I love y'all!
