Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

I can sit up and even walk around some today. Things are improving. I am becoming very, very anxious though. One dr. isn't happy with me; the other will follow tomorrow. Not unrelatedly (is that a word? is now) 365 days ago I was waiting up to eat at 11:55. This is a year since the day that changed everything. I am really not handling it well. It's probably good that I see Dr. Mind tomorrow instead of Monday. I can't believe tomorrow is Thursday. I have lost nearly a week. I'm becoming more afraid of this surgery and that I will lose even more. I keep thinking about my professional self in say 2010. I know that is gone. I can't lose it again. But that hurts too. On the other hand I talked to Anne a little bit on the phone and she is as sweet as ever. Mom said that a repair man came to fix the washer today. She told Anne "Now this is Mike, he's here to fix the washer". Anne said "I will be shy". (this always last 3 seconds which is funny to see). My mom told her Mike was nice, no need to be shy. So instead she watched him with a complete commentary and questions. He finally asked my mom how how she was. My mom (or Anne although she forgets that her birthday makes her 2 instead of 1 1/2) told him and he said "Is she READING yet? Wow!" Funny. And my guess is reading easily by age 3. anyway, I have some soup to eat and maybe tonight I'll sleep. Copyright 2006 www.masterofirony.blogspot.com

I'm so thankful for the bright light of Anne's little life!

Hold on to all the lovely things you've GAINED to help you through these losses. Glad you're feeling a little better.

This morning I found various angel verses in Hebrews ! such as v. 14. My footnotes say "Angels, God's messengers, were created by God and are under His authority (Colossians 1:16). They have several functions: serving believers (1:14), protecting the helpless (Matthew 18:10-11), proclaiming God's messages (Revelation 14: 6-12) and executing God's judgment (Acts 12: 1-13; Revelation 20: 1-3)."

Isn't this encouraging? Read the first verses of Matt 18, too. Jesus sits a child on his knee...

Matt. 18: 10

"Beware that you don't look down upon a single one of these little children. For I tell you that in heaven their angels have constant access to my Father."

I hope you can think of yourself in the arms of the Lord, guarded by angels. Hold that thought and pray your little heart out!

Love, Michal

That would be Hebrews 1, not Hebrews "!" They're on the same key and I didn't notice the typo.
