No more stitches.


At some point in your life, you have to get beyond initial impact. My blog to this point was one stitch at a time. It was what it needed to be. Healing has to happen.

heal |hēl|
verb [ trans. ]

(of a person or treatment) cause (a wound, injury, or person) to become sound or healthy again 
• [ intrans. ] become sound or healthy again : 
• alleviate (a person's distress or anguish) : time can heal the pain of grief.
• correct or put right (an undesirable situation

You have to walk on a broken ankle eventually. You have to put weight on broken legs if you ever want to walk again. It hurts, it's uncomfortable... but a necessity. It is time to go beyond the pain and heal. In order for LIFE to keep it's course, when it receives it's injuries... you have to LIVE. 

Phipps note :) We are good and excited about what is next. God blows my mind. If you ever doubt what God has for your life, as cliche as it sounds, ask Him. He will show you, maybe a God Wink but it comes. Days will never get easier, if they did... it would just be another yesterday. April started at SPARKS Hospital and I started at St. Edwards Mercy. She is the Unit Secretary and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Hospice. Mercy Hospital is a Faith Based Ministry, even though it is a hospital. We have started a regiment at the Fitness Center. April is amazing. She has lost almost 10 pounds and walks 2 miles a day. We have really moved into a level of health that we don't want to stop. 

Don't let life live for you... you live your life!

Hi! I just wanted to say I don't know what you are currently going through. The circumstances of which are none of my business. Yet, I have been going through my own process of healing, so just know you have someone who understands in some small way what you may be dealing with. Congrats on the lifestyle change for you both. That's awesome. I love you and April more than words can say. If there is anything I can ever do for you, just say the word. Seriously... Anyway, just wanted to let you know you aren't alone - Jesus is right by your side always. He's the one who holds your hand when you feel most alone and sees the tears you cry when you think no one is around. You are loved and cherished by Almighty God and by me :) Nothin but love for ya! Have a great Sunday and keep blogging. You are really good at it.
