I woke up late. Actually, I woke up at 6:00 am, like normal, but I fell back to sleep. I haven’t been taking care of myself. Thanks to last years Chemo treatment for Breast Cancer, I now listen to my body, and how it feels. Once is enough on that one!
Stumbling into the kitchen, all I wanted was my coffee. Which, by the way, I have been drinking too much of recently. (My friends just fell over) If you’ve been with me the past few weeks, you have probably thought, “Did she really just say that out-loud?” Oh!!! But Wait!!! There’s more!!!! If I slow down.
I walked into the kitchen, and noticed the coffee pot sitting there empty. I was so tired lastnight while preparing it, I forgot to push the button that allows it to automatically brew. It was ready, but it couldn’t fulfill it’s purpose because I missed the most important step! (Cussing) God was showing me, and it was early! Crap!
A friend sent me this Meme days ago. My year of Breast Cancer taught me so much, I’m gonna write a book! God was right there, refining me through the fire! He has big plans, and for once I was still enough to hear Him! I love Connie Moore.
I finished Radiation earlier this year, and rested for a couple of months. It felt like it was time to start sharing, but I’ve always been overzealous. On April 17th, I wrote, Hey Satan! Dat You? God said, “Write that down Barb. That’s the day you got your fire back!” Not only have I walked through the fire, but I have become the flame!
I’ve been waiting a long time to use this Meme. God gave me someone two years ago that shows me how to wait. He’s patient, and his love never fails, and he’s still here today. Thank you Mr. Smith for being my God-given rock!!!
Do you know the first time God told me, “Write That Down?” March 17th. I’m a slow learner, but by looking at the what God had done so far, I knew this.
I have people in my life to love me, and protect me from myself. (My daughter, Connie M., and Mr. Smith) I knew Satan would be pissed, and come after me. But here is the most important thing I knew! I got this the first time!!!!
I told Mr. Smith I wouldn’t write today, but here I am! He is laying it on me, as I finish this up! He has always told me, “But Barb… You don’t listen.” He just referred to me as a Jackass, for being so stubborn!!! I need people like that, and I love Mr. Smith.
I really want to be that bright, green, check mark. The rest will be in the book.
