So stuff changes. Situations we don't like will eventually change for the better, and the situations we do like, well, they won't stay that way forever. We grow, we move on, we change. I guess change is a side-effect of being alive. That doesn't mean I always have to like it. Nothing stays the same...or does it?

"But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting "
Psalm 103:17a
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever."
Psalm 136:1
"Your name, O Lord, endures forever, your renown, O Lord, throughout all ages."
Psalm 135:13
"Trust in the Lord forever,for the Lord God is an everlasting rock."
Isaiah 26:4
"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;for his steadfast love endures forever!"
Psalm 118:1

Everlasting. Enduring. Forever.

Now THAT'S something I can count on.

that's no moon

We started putting up decorations for John and Rachael's wedding last night. The light up walking horse is in place. And half of the lanterns are up. They make me quote Star Wars...

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high Priest who's name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me

My name is graven on His hand
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

When satan tempts me to despair
and tells me of the guilt within
upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin

Because a sinless Savior died
my sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect spotless righteousness
The great unchangeable I AM
The King of Glory and of grace

One with Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God

air walk

After a round of Prednisone didn't fix my gimpy foot, I went to see the orthopedist. He confirmed that the joint is fine, but the tissue around the joint is inflamed. Crazy, angry inflamed. He drew out a syringe of fluid for analysis, and then shot my ankle full of Cortisone and put me in an air cast. I'm going back next week for a booster shot before John & Rachael's wedding. I just need to be able to stand on it and wear regular shoes for an hour so I don't ruin their pictures. After that, I'm off to the rheumatologist for more tests (and hopefully an answer for what's wrong).

Speaking of said wedding, we're all still working frantically to prepare for the big day. Lots of festivities are planned...and I can't wait to see everyone! So...uh...that's about it for now. I was going to make an April Fool's joke about pulling for the tarholes, but there are some things that you just don't joke about...
