I had a pretty busy week. I made this card ((sleepytime riley?, dcwv glitter cs, bic markers, crayola color pencils, oms)) in honor of my lazy night in my pj's :) getting ready to enjoy some coffee and sit for a few minutes with Tommy before our busy week starts again. This past week I got ready for Beckys party as well as taking Hannah back to her allergist for her test results. It was a long ride, but we got answers and got to play around Charleston later:). They told us pretty much what we new .. but the severity of the allergy. She tested the possible highest reaction to peanuts, eggs, dust mites and grass. the next were in the next stage(almost highest .. still very severe) dogs, cats, and wheat. the only one he said was not easy or as accurate was the wheat. We will have to test that out ourselves. Our next task is setting up allergy shots and seeing if they will help. He told us that if it did not help her allergies as much it would still benefit her and hopefully prevent her from developing allergic asthma. (she has mild asthma right now). SO, we are just kinof where we started. It is good to know about the #'s the blood test showed. Her back scratch test showed mild allergies to some of hte severe ones we know of now. The scratch test did not give a correct diagnosis. She must have been too tense or moved:( OK, well .. that is that. Her eczema has made a complete turn around. Prayer and faith. God has healed my baby from this and I will praise and thank him for it. Without God we would still be struggling. It took a step of faith and trust and a desperate cry for help. God is so good to us. I could never thank him enough.
I do not mean to go on and on. My life has changed so much over the past monts struggling with Hannah, finances, lots of things. I have grown closer to God in my storm rather than gotten angry or ran from him. He has been my strength. My sister sang a song today "I just cant give up now, I've come to far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road would be easy and I dont believe you brought me this far to leave me" (or close to that :) ) I have been leaning too much on my own trust and my own understanding and not on God. I had not given him the praise he deserved. the pastor said that we are living that way and not realizing it. Not living by the word but what we feel is right. Not by what he instructs but by our own rules. We think that if we are generally good we will be saved. That is not true. We will only be saved through Christ Jesus who died for our sin. He paid the price and he did all this for us because he loves us. The way the economy is now is not because God is turning his back on his people but because we have turned our backs on God. We have become a world of "do what I want when I want and if I have time I will pray or read my bible." We accepted so many things the Bible and God is against. Opened so many doors and turned this world into so much sin .. but still try to cover it up and make it ok so everyone is "happy". I wish I could collect my thoughts well enough to explain myself better. I will be in prayer about this and will be reading my bible, looking for answers and write more later. I do hope you are all praying for the upcoming election. We do not need empty promises. We need what the country was founded upon and that is God. We need God .. as simple as that. We will not and cannot survive without him. Love you all. Good night and God bless.
