"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

This Just In...

So, the news for the day is that I went to the doctor for a check-up on my fainting episode...I had an EKG and a whole bunch of blood work...they also thought it best to wear a heart monitor for the next 24hrs and to keep a detailed diary on when I sit and stand, eat, laugh or cough...like I said, detailed! I've had it on now for a little over an hour and I'm already annoyed with it. There are wires everywhere!! I feel like maybe I'm entitled to a handicap parking space for the next 24hrs or so...

Also, I went shooting last night with N and my head was apparently too close to the scope when I shot because once it recoiled I received a decent egg on my forehead....

Therefore, my outfit is totally ruined today! I wore an outfit inspired by my friend's blog about fashion found at thrift stores...if you're interested see it at http://thegleamofrosetea.blogspot.com... I'm pretty sure she is my only reader though...well, maybe there are two more of you out there!

Bottom line: I haven't thought of a spiritual application to this yet but I know there HAS to be one!! If you can think of one...post it under comments!!

Hope you are all having a great day!

I read :) I check every morning for a new post. haha.

That's crazy about how detailed you have to keep that diary!! At least it's only for 24 hours.

I'm not really sure of a spiritual application either... however, the first thing that came to mind after I read this post was: "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content" -Philippians 4:11

So, how is the monitor coming? Did they say if they think they know what it is? Do you still not feel well?
Thanks for the link fyi. I am sure you get more people than just me reading:). I read this thing about how to get more viewers and it said that you should just keep updating daily, sooner or later you will get faithful viewers:).
I can't think of a spiritual application either...Maybe, just as you have an external heart monitor, you have an inside one (Holy Spirit) that makes you conscious of your life and thoughts if you listen to HIm.
