By the hair on my chinny chin chin

So thankful.  The good Lord likes to keep us on the edge of our seats waiting and trusting sometimes…right up to the very last minute.  I confess, I was worried.  Not because I didn’t believe my God could be trusted whatever happened…but because I didn’t want to be evicted tomorrow.  Thanks to blessed, wonderful friends and a blessed, wonderful church, we have what we need so that won’t happen.  And we have food so we’re not hungry.  I’m on the road to getting health needs met.  Jen has a couple of possible full time jobs lined up, and is hopeful about getting hired for one or the other of them.  Meanwhile she has odd jobs lined up, and I have a couple of pet sitting jobs later this month myself.

I feel like crying.  Not because I’m sad…just you know…when you have been under so much pressure and it’s all about to blow.  So many things still ‘in the works’.  Still have the dental appointments until that’s done.  Still have to get vehicles somehow.  I will probably be called back for more testing regarding my mammogram.  They’re trying to obtain the last ones for comparison, but that was back in ’06.  If they get them, compare and nothing has changed I’ll be good to go.  If they don’t get them, or if they don’t match up when they get them, I’ll get called back again, because they weren’t all clear with the first ones.  Got a couple calls yesterday and today regarding all of that, but I’m not worried about any of that.  Just waiting.

I…am…thankful.  I…am…trusting…still.

  2. You have a lot to handle…crying can be beneficial to some….God Bless…..Diane

    • Anne Sikes says:

      Thanks Diane. God bless you too! I have a lot to be thankful for as well, every day. I don’t always talk about everything…as much as I DO talk about on here. When the answers come, I’ll share more at times. 🙂

    I am so grateful that God came through. He does say with faith and patience, but patience can be hard, especially in light of all that you have going on. 🙂 Continue to trust Him and I will continue to pray.

    we have no choice but to trust in my opinion. if we don’t i can only imagine where my life would be heading. i will pray that all testing goes well for you Anne. I am with you always in mind and spirit

    • Anne Sikes says:

      Ditto, my dear friend. I know what you mean too. I know that everyone has problems, but honestly…I don’t know what I’d do without my Lord. I know He’s there with you too…He’ll give you the strength day to day…and Al too. I believe it.

      • terry1954 says:

        can you imagine Anne? even for a moment, what a day would b like for us without God in it? i can almost blog the turmoils we would encounter

        • Anne Sikes says:

          I know. After knowing His presence now…I would hate the mere thought of not having that. There have been times where I haven’t felt Him there…but knew He was still. And then something would happen…he’d do some amazing thing…even in the worst of times…that could not be anything but Him. You know one thing that He did. When Ted was driving the truck, when he first started there was a specific truck he wanted. He told me on the phone (I wasn’t with him yet) the number of the truck and to pray that he’d get it. He’d seen it there at the yard. Well…he didn’t get it. He got a really old one with a lot of problems and was pretty upset about it actually. Then later when that one broke down and he had to turn it in for another, guess which one they issued him? After all the time had passed (don’t remember how long it had been), and that specific truck was suddenly available, out of about 1000 trucks, and was the one that he was issued. I could tell you some stories like that, Girlfriend!! I’ve got lots of them. He truly is an awesome God.

            so many of us are blessed with small and big miracles and showings of Christ being right here with us daily, even me. we and I sometimes don’t look for the small ones, but they are here every single day. we only have to look. god loves you and me. we are his children and he loves us and wants us to be happy through his love

    Keep up the good faith Anne. I’m touched with your words. I’m also in a fork right now, its really in trusting God that we are comforted 🙂

    Whatever is happening in your life, you can rest assured that God is right there with you. Listen closely for that still small voice of His. Sandy

    • Anne Sikes says:

      Oh, He’s most definitely here,and I don’t know how we’d survive without Him. People say they do, but He is most definitely my rock, and the One in whom I trust. 🙂 Thank you Sandy, and blessings to ya’!

      • lbtk says:

        Sometimes I feel as if I’m being tossed in the tides of the sea and God is this huge Rock I can crawl onto when I’ve taken on too much water or my strength is ebbing. (Of course, then I strike out on my own, fight the waves again.) I’m learning, though, just to take refuge on the Rock. There really is nothing that the sea can give me anyway. Sandy

        • Anne Sikes says:

          Amen! So true. I do the same thing. I do pretty well til it gets to be down to the wire with things sometimes, and then I do have a hard time maintaining the composure sometimes. 🙂
