“You will not be left or abandoned. God will not be disgusted with you. Ever. In that way, God is not like the people in your life. God doesn’t tire of your struggle and your back-and-forth and your uncertainty. God doesn’t grow weary of your winding path.” – Begin Again
Well May has been an interesting month so far. Actually, 2018 has been filled with all kinds of surprises, and I feel thankful that I got through April in one piece. Within one week, my husband and two of our dogs each had surgery. They are all recovered and doing beautifully, but I was just about ready to collapse at the end of that week! On top of taking care of my family, I had my own health issues to contend with.
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is an autoimmune disease in which my immune system is attacking my own body, specifically my joints. It is my second autoimmune diagnosis. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease almost 15 years ago. So between taking care of my family, working, and dealing with my own tests, doctor appointments, and adjusting to my new medication, I’m just thankful I’ve had time to read at all. Thanks to Baker Publishing Group (and Someone else I believe 😉 ), I ended up with just the right book at just the right time, Begin Again by Leeana Tankersley.
