Well as most of you know by now, we are changing some things around with the H.O.P.E. Program for the summer. Our current thereapist Kimmie will no longer be with us after May 27th. Please make sure and thank Kimmie for her contribution to our program while she was with us. We will have another therapist named Amy beginning on June 8th and will be with us throught the summer. We have decided to end the Thursday evening group after May 27th for the summer and will make a decision about starting it back in the Fall. Also, as of this moment, I have decided to cancel the surgeries I was scehduled for in June and leave the option open to reschedule for a later date if I feel it's necessary. The pain in my feet from the Neuropathy is much better. In fact, I walked 3 miles yesterday and feel great today and plan on walking 3 more miles today. I did have acupunture for pain and feel like it had a profound impact on the pain I was experiencing. I am most, most grateful to the Lord for the relief!
With all these changes, it can certainly feel like walking on shifting ground. I have felt that way many times in the past several months. What I have made a decision not to do every single time I feel like I am stumbling is to shove lots of unhealthy food down my mouth. I made a decision to go back to the gym right in the middle of all this shifting . I also made a decision to start a new group exercise class. I have also talked about it with close friends. Every now and then, not nearly as often as I used to, I will make a choice to sit and eat out of an emotional place. It does not change the shifting, but at least I know that I know that now. Took a long time to get there! Thank you all for your support during this time of more transition, and for reminding me that the Anchor holds, even in the times of great movement. My Anchor is the Truth, which is the Word of God and what that tells me about me! It's a great reminder to us all that we can rely on the Truth, during the stable and unstable times, and that the racket never holds us or serves us well!
Have a great weekend!
