There is a reason for my lack of post these last few days.. & for me not leaving comments to some very dear friends.
But, first let me be honest. I have a really hard time asking for prayer for myself. Does anybody else out there struggle with this besides me?… Most of the time I feel like my own prayers are just small insignificant things that when compared to someone else’s problems they are so small. And then.. POOF, just like that.. I never ask for prayer or mention them to anybody again. Isn’t that terrible? ~sigh~ How is God to EVER be Glorified if I choose NOT to tell of His Work?!
Five years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. I have lived with it for 9 yrs. now.. but have only been diagnosed for 5. I don’t share it with many people. It just doesn’t come up in conversation.. “Oh, by the way.. I have Crohn’s Disease.” LOL! See, not a great conversation starter…! Most people don’t even know what it is.. & I’d venture to say that most people may even be thinking that it’s something.. CONTAGIOUS! 🙂 Well, it’s not.
God has been with me every step of this journey and has NOT left my side. I have difficult days but NONE like I had on Thursday. Matt & I were off to a VERY busy week with FCA. I was right in the middle of it all.. plus,.. thinking ahead of an up & coming Banquet next week. Me trying to maintain.. LIFE as a Mom, Wife, Admin. Assit., a faithful blogger.. 🙂 , .. etc. etc.. it Hit me. I WAS STRESSED! And, because Crohn’s & Stress is NOT a good combination.. I ended up in the Emergency Room Thursday afternoon! My Doctor was on Vacation & I was in contact with his nurse who.. recommended me to go to the ER. I have NEVER been to the ER.. except when I was having my babies.. (does that count?) I was soo afraid .. I was expecting the worse.. but Praise GOD!! I had no blockages & was sent home with Strong Antibiotics, Prednisone, Pain meds.. etc.etc.etc.
I said all that to say this.. please pray for me and my continued healing. God is seeing me through these difficult days & I am feeling better every day. I’m sorry to some of you who.. I haven’t really commented on your blogs,.. or posted a whole lot here. Life has been a little hectic here at The Walker Household. I sometimes.. give off the misconception that everything is A-okay here… when really. .. we have are problems, disappointments, Dr. appointments,..strong willed kids! (GRR) that I’ll choose to talk about at a later time.. ~sigh~
Life! Really……………. Just …….everyday…….. Life.
And, sometimes,.. I forget to give God all the Praise & Glory during those hectic times.. & just choose not to ask for prayer.. or act like anything is wrong.
Can anybody relate with me?.. I don’t know.. maybe it’s just me?
I look forward to catching up on some bloggy reads and I have some blogs to re-design (which is very therapeutic for me). lol! Hope you all have a Wonderful Week!
