I jinxed myself. I set as a goal to overcome and breakthrough in 2018. I had no idea what the world would throw at me for being so big-headed.
My husband now has heart issues too. I put my poor dog to sleep Friday and two hours later, we got the test results. His lower heart is not pumping right when he exerts himself.
Then this morning, I had to rush my cat to the vet and found out she has a terrible infection that is going to require medication for the next two weeks to help her recover.
My husband goes to the heart doctor tomorrow. My mind travels down deep holes into vain imaginations. I can’t help it at this point. The neck pain and pinched nerves were something that he could live with, maybe, if he doesn’t lose sensation in his arms and legs and then cannot walk. He also faces a chance of paralyzation if they can’t do the surgery.
His heart is another realm of worry. I am not in the overcoming mode right now. I want to scream and cry unfair. My husband has a way of putting things into perspective. Things could be much worse, much worse. I could have said goodbye to him too if his heart stopped just like my dog’s did. My dad also died of a massive heart attack in 1999.
I want to say, I am counting my blessings, but I am clinging to faith like a life raft in a storm.
My daughter’s issues are better at least. In the meantime, I am far from being an overcomer in 2018. Breaking through seems the least of my worries now. I appreciate your prayers as always.

My Favorite Post
Gayl and I selected the same favorite post this week. Numbers 2 and 4 really spoke to me this week. I look back over my year and I know I have not reached my weekly posting goal of three times a week; but, I was there for my daughter during her illness. I am praying steadfastly for my husband now too. It has been such a very hard year. God is trying me for a bigger purpose, but right now, I have no idea what His goals for my life are. I am just holding on to Him and praying, trusting that He’s got me and He’s got my family in His mighty hand.
Please let me know what you liked about this post in the comments. Please, also share your prayer requests today with me. I need to focus on others right now to help me through this period too. Thank you so much for your continued support.
