Today is my daughter’s seventh birthday, and the start of another new year in her life. It is also the last post for me on Even Rocks Cry Out, as I transition on to other things. I am so thankful for all who have read and encouraged me through each season of this past year. THANK YOU for cheering me on!
I have felt a bit worse for the past month or so, and a friend reminded me that I felt worse last spring… and the spring before! I hadn’t realized that, and she reminded me that I had felt discouraged each spring, then I came through it. That was helpful! In the same way, it’s been helpful for me to write these posts so I can look back on tangible acts of God’s faithfulness and mercy and your support.
As far as transitioning, I don’t know exactly what’s next, but I look forward to more resting and praying, more time with the kids home this summer, maybe a trip to the Mayo Clinic (still haven’t heard!), and most immediately, exercising “every day in May.” K and S and I have exercised together (via Facebook accountability!) from hundreds of miles apart every day in May for many years (I took a couple years off), and I’m ready to join back in, although their exercise includes running and planks, and I am hoping to do at least 4 minutes a day on the recumbent exercise bike. Hey, just start where you are, right?
I am thankful to be through the chaos of diagnosis and initial discoveries in my journey with POTS and NCS and feel like I’m now into the hard part of persevering… but God specializes in that and will see me through this and you through whatever trials you now have as His child.
“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen!” (Eph. 3:20-21)
