Some thoughts on a quiet day...

Today my mind is thinking back over the events of the past two weeks, since my throat surgery, and now recovery period.  It has been a big adjustment for me not to have a "real voice" any more.  I can only whisper, but am not supposed to be even doing that for a few more weeks.  Then, only time will tell if I will ever have a real voice again....probably not, but that is ok, because at least I have oxygen in my lungs and can breathe the beautiful clean fresh air.  Praise be to God, for He is such a marvelous healer and the very best Physician of all!

This morning, as I read my daily devotional, from Matthew 10, I read about the two sparrows sold for a copper coin, "and not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will."  It reminded me that the eyes of our Lord are everywhere, and that nothing that happens in our lives escapes His attention.  I know that He has been with me every step of the way, through my surgery, and now through what will be in the coming days of adjustments in my life.

My little grandchildren, Emery (7 months) and Ella (5 months) don't know how to speak yet, and so I am learning to "sign" language to them, and they just love it.  It brings tears to my eyes because I have found a new way to communicate with them without having to vocalize!   This is just too wonderful for words!


  1. Wishing you a speedy recovery. I loved signing to my children when they were learning to speak. I didn't know alot but the little i did know helped alot.

  2. Kathy, my prayers are with you! I am a lurker, but your post touched me today and I felt moved to respond. Jeremiah 29:11 has always been a verse to remember in my life's storms. God bless you!

  3. I will pray that your voice comes back, the power of prayer is so strong we need more believers, there is strength in numbers.
    Your grandchildren are so adorable.
    Peace to you and your family in the name of
    Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Consider the Lilies of the Field
"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the Lilies of the Field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." Matt: 6: 28-29)
