Higher. . .

Bucky and I head to Houston. . .

for my 3 month ALS check up. It’s a deeply challenging time for me. Every time I go, I come to the end of myself. The perception of the love of family and friends and the face of my Lord take a back seat (my weakness I know.) The progression and coping changes gets bigger and bigger as we as we near the city. By the time we roll into clinic, the looming shadow is overwhelming.

Every specialist is so positive, helpful and uplifting. We are all there for the same hope: A Cure. No one speaks it, everyone carries it high like a large, invisible, red bouquet of balloons. The balloons nudge and whisper together of what’s to come one day. . .They hover near the ceiling, no room to spare. Full in lift, awaiting release from the confines of the room. Breaking loose into the wide open height of the heavens. Free in the wind to pursue The Son.

I needed some red balloons, so here we go.

The “secular” songs, are totally “scared” in my interpretation πŸ™‚

  1. Tracey, Isaiah 52:12 says that The Lord will go before you and be your rear guard. You are the apple of his eye. He says that he will never fail you nor forsake you. I pray that you feel His promises personally comforting you. You are his child whom he loves deeply!
    I love you!

  2. Oh Tracey, If God has favorites…YOU are one of them. He is giving you the key to His treasures, He delights Himself with you in a thousand ways as you spend time with Him in His holy presence.

    I am almost giddy reading a “new” book…”The Practice of the Presence of God” by Brother Lawrence. He lived in the 1600’s, you probably know him and his little book but I just discovered it and can’t stop thinking and pondering on everything he practiced. Adding another “mentor” to my little life I guess!

    Last thought or song to share….”I am” by David Crowder, listen to it on your drive to Houston. And know
    thoughts, prayers and love from my heart to yours.

  3. Tracey,
    The Lord will be with you where ever you go!! I am always praying for you and your family. I am praying Gal. 6:9,
    Do not grow weary of well-doing. You are God’s special servant. I still hear you say, Elaine you have homework to do for next week. The homework you gave me always worked.
    I love red and I will picture these red balloons whenever I think of you!

    Love ya, Elaine Hillman
