I like this picture. So, yesterday I found some jeans at the thrift store for $3.50 aaaand they fit! I like them a lot. I'm guessing they cost about 80 bucks originally. Score!
John is on graveyard so he's home in the day and gone at night. He was telling me about the marriage laws in Colorado. Can people actually get married at 14 there? Probably not.
Ah, only a little more than 2 days before I get this cast off. Tomorrow I want to start walking, but maybe I'll put it off until Thursday. I really stressed out my ankle yesterday. I walked around the house without crutches. *thinks that was really dumb and hopes that I didn't injure myself* So today I've been taking it easy. I can actually stand on it now, it's kind of amazing.
I realized how overwhelming this whole situation really was. But I never saw it, I only took things one day at a time. Or else my head would have exploded. God only let me know what I needed to know. I looked at the journal entry's since the accident and over all I've had a really good attitude. Which is really amazing. God has been the one giving me all the strength I need to do this. Without His strength I would have been lost. I found a passage from Job that I had written done in my prayer journal about 2 or 3 weeks ago.
"But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. My feet have closely followed his steps; I have kept to his way without turning aside. I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread." Job 23:10-12
This has been my situation. I've been tested, and when He's finished I'll come out as gold. His word has been my strength, sometimes the only thing encouraging me.
But I've stumbled through this, it's not like I've turned away from the faith. But my attitudes have not been right, I haven't paid as much attention to God's Word as I should have. Thank the Lord for His grace and forgiveness.
It's been an interesting ride and it's not over yet.
