Last week was a bad week for me…a really bad week. If it could have gone wrong, it did. If it shouldn’t have gone wrong, it did. It came from all different directions and was to the point of ridiculous!!! Every day I was surrounded by frustration, exasperation and discouragement, but Psalm 34:1 states, “I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” That is my heart and that is my goal; to praise my God when things are going my way and to praise Him when nothing is going my way. His worthiness and my circumstances have nothing to do with each other. Nothing.
So, I decided to paint my lips this week as a reminder of Psalm 34:1. If you zoom in you will see plenty of loose brushstrokes (yay!!), but I definitely layered the lips more than I wanted to…a lot more. UGH!!!! Some habits are sooooo hard to break!!! Two weeks left and I am still NOT giving up!!! If you missed my post which explains this year-long challenge, please read You’re Invited To The Unveilings.
On a very different note, I wanted to let you know that I am having surgery tomorrow morning on my left hip to remove hardware from a surgery that I had in 2009. It has come up fairly quickly as I’ve been having issues with the hardware over the past several weeks. Overall, the surgery should be fairly simple, but prayers would still be appreciated!!
