I have a prayer request or two today.
The first one is for my husband. Now before I go any further, I want my dear family to know that I will call you if there is a need for real concern, but for now I'm just asking for prayer.
Kev just hasn't felt too great lately. A couple of weeks ago he went to the doctor, which he never does and had an EKG done. Everything seemed fine. He was given a prescription and sent on his way. He is still not himself. He is going through the motions, doing all the normal stuff, going above and beyond like usual, but I'm his wife...I can tell he just doesn't feel too great.
He is a big guy. He knows that the answer to a lot of his health issues would be to lose the weight. It just isn't always as easy as it looks on paper. Finding the time to be healthy, to "think and plan" what he eats, to exercise, well it all takes time that he doesn't have unless he makes it.
Please pray that he will want to try and that he will have the determination to follow through.
He also has a high tolerance of pain. I have seen him go to church Sunday morning in his house shoes because the pain in his foot from gout was so severe. He just keeps going and going, even when he doesn't feel well. This past weekend his blood pressure medicine ran out over the holiday...scary. HE spent all of Monday with no meds. He never complained although I know it bothered him. Please pray that he will just feel better or that we can get to the bottom of what is wrong.
What makes me nervous the most is that he has a big Senior trip planned this week. So when you are saying your nightly prayers if you could just remember to add a little prayer for Kev, I would appreciate it.
And then I have an unspoken prayer request. Simply because I'm not able to share this little burden of mine right now. I'm just wrestling with something and hopefully one day soon I can share it with you, but for now, I simply need prayer. I need to let go of things and just allow God to be in control and find joy in that and in this situation.
Thanks so much for reading and praying. I wish I had something funny to say tonight or a great news tidbit to write about, but I don't... But I am thankful that this online journal of mine can be opened and read, even when all I need is some conversations going to God on our behalf.
Have a great week.
