rain.gif  Rain…rain…rain!!!  Mud…mud…mud!!!

Today was yet another wonky day!  I took the daughter up to Akron to see a specialist. It was uneventful driving.  I am soooooooo glad that I google earthed the directions.  It helped tremendously!!! The doc  was very nice, but ONLY wanted the facts.  He got very impatient when he got more than the facts.   He ordered blood work done, which we did there.  I have to call back next week to see what the results are.  I have not ever had to do that before.  Always the doctor’s office called me.

The daughter fell asleep in the back seat, and the boy and I were trying to carry on a conversation, but I was having to raise my voice so he could hear me over the rain and the traffic, so he climbed up front with me.  We had such a great time chatting.  talking.gif

I am tired.  Emotionally, physically and mentally.

Now to the tongue.

19.  The Rude Tongue

Rude people do not even have time to think about others.  They are totally absorbed with their own agendas.  What has made us so rude?  Is it the overbooked schedules, demanding bosses, spoiled children and the stress of daily living?   Perhaps our lack of patience can be attributed to the modern conveniences that allow us to do almost anything in seconds.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5~~Love is patient and kind.  Love is not rude, love does not demand its own way.

20.  The Judgmental Tongue

Judgmental people engage in a critical, fault-finding assessment of another person’s behavior.  What is amazing is that they judge others by their actions but judge themselves by their intentions.   Jesus bases His judgment of people’s behavior on nothing other than God’s standard.  This is the ONLY basis  from which we can righteously judge.  We would do well to focus more on judging ourselves than for hunting for specks in the matters of others.

John 8:15-16~~You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one.  But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone.  I stand with the Father, who sent me.

  3. Glad you made it safe & sound! Hope you get some answers & a solution so this can be over with!!! Still keeping you & your DD in my thoughts & prayers!!

  4. CC, I am glad you continued to give the doctor more than “just the facts”. I think it is important for them to know everything. I am sorry you have to wait so long to call back.

    It is wonderful that you were able to have some quality time with the young chef.

    Blessings!!

  5. Doctors can be so impatient sometimes. I thought they were supposed to listen to all that is going on. Aren’t we told to always tell our doctor everything?

    We will continue to keep you and your family in our prayers.

  6. Good on you for telling him more than just the facts. (I always thought tellign them everything made it much easier for them to make a diagnosis since we don’t always realise that some things can be a symptom. Or that some symptoms can be ralated to old issues or new ones.)

    I hate having to wait for results. I am not a patient person. (God is working on me with that though)I’m glad the tests are done though and here’s hoping that they bring a result and you won’t need to take her back for more.
    And yay for time alone with the boy. I so hope my boys love being with their Mum when they reach Deans age as much as he seems to love being with you.
