They Say When It Rains It Pours

I say when it rains, those seeds you planted are getting the necessary water for growth so we can have a harvest in the coming season.  Can I get an amen on that one?

So, I call my blog My Life.  Lately my life seems to be encompassed with the lives of my loved ones.  Here’s the skinny:

§         Cynthia – If you’ve been following Cynthia’s story, you know she had her surgery on January 15, 2010.  I haven’t updated Cynthia’s blog with her praise report, but it’s coming.  Either Cynthia or I will update it.  In the meantime, GOD is not good, He is GREAT!  The doctors took the lump just in time.  They found that it was contained to that lump alone, non-invasive, and they got the pre-cancerous scar tissue!  They said it was a very strange case.  I say Cynthia is blessed.  Thanks to everyone who prayed for her, offered support, and donated.  God will bless all of you as well.

§         Closer to home -  On Sunday, January 17, 2010, my cousin Tim Williams had a stroke in church.  Tim is only 41 years old and has been very close to me all of my life.  We have a very special bond.  I’m choking up with tears as I type this.  I just love him so much and seeing him in that condition is hard for me at times.  His wife has been such a trooper.  He told me she’s a strong woman and she must be to be married to him.  Timothy has not been completely awake since, but he is making slow and sure progress.  Please pray for Tim and his family.

§         Even closer to home – On Wednesday, January 20, 2010, just a few days after Timothy was struck, my step-father was told he has a type of blood cancer.  I think it’s multiple myeloma, but I’m not sure yet.  Everything is too early to tell with him.  We will know for sure in a few days.  Again, continue to pray for my family and me.

§         We went to court today.  Today was the final hearing.  Thank God it’s over.  Now let’s see if we can behave ourselves now…  If you didn’t already know, the wasbund sued me for a reduction in child support.  That’s all Imma say about that…

§         Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday.  His first since he left us for a better place back in March 2009.  God bless my dad, my brother Tony, my brother JJ, and my sister Crystal and my other mother Carrie.  I know tomorrow may be a bit hard on them.  Keep them in your prayers as well.

In other news, I have been busy with work and this thing called my life.  TJ leaves to go to San Antonio TX for Air Force Basic Training on February 2, 2010.  I’m really going to miss him.  He has been great with helping his brothers with their homework and school work.  He’s been able to give them some good advice on how to deal with Mommy and when is a good time to give Mommy bad news.  As much as I am going to miss him, he needs this new venture right now more than anything.

Work has been a pleasant distraction.  Watching grown men daily prove themselves to each other can be quite comical.  That’s all Imma say on that point.

Good news is that I have my health and my wealth.  God-willing, I plan to keep both.

Today I am grateful for:
§         My best lawyer ever – Kelly Seabrook.  If you ever need an attorney, I highly recommend Kelly.
§         Cynthia’s health – I am so happy she is healed.
§         Kim Jackson-Archie and Angela Magazinee – They were both so helpful and hopeful when they heard about Cynthia.
§         My own personal health and wealth.
§         My 3 sons.
§         My beautiful mother Brenda.
§         All who read this and continue to pray for my family.
§         Every time I post to my blog, I’m recording my own personal history and I love it.
