A No for Today

My sweet friend, Mackenzie, had a great status on Facebook a couple of days ago.  It said,
 When God gives you a "No" Give Him a "Thank You".  He was protecting from less than His best!

Such a good quote and one that I really needed.  Today I received a "No".  I didn't receive a diagnosis today.   The illness that the doctors were looking at at my last visit has now been ruled out.  Now the doctors are testing me for new things.  I had 12 vials of blood taken.  My Dad jokes that I might not have much blood left for testing!  These particular tests have to be sent to Rochester.  So, you know what that means?  More waiting.  I have my next appointment in a week and a half.
So, how am I feeling?  I have good days, and not so good days.  Somedays I have more energy than others and sometimes my whole body seems to ache.  The ever present pressure is ever present.  I'm thankful for a great family that is taking care of me.  They are the best!  And I have terrific news!  My Mam-maw arrived in Florida today, so I look forward to some loving care from her.

So, I have to say, Thank you Lord for protecting me from less than your best.  He loves me so much and is doing the very best for me.  Even when I don't quite understand it, I still see His hand working in my life.  For His presence, I am so grateful!


  1. Still praying, Bro. Patrick and Mrs. Kami. Even though your trial isn't over yet, I know God is using it to His honor and glory. You won't know until Heaven the effect your illness and sweet spirit have had around the world.

  2. Praying for you Kami!! Your entire family is a Blessing to watch and I couldn't help thinking when I was watching the oldest three kids singing that it won't be long before the youngest three will be singing like that!!xxxooo

  3. And, you're one step closer to finding out the answer...

    Praying for you, Kami!!!
