Well darn it, as usual I am a little off of the 15th for my Siesta Scripture Memory Team Verse. But not by much! I didn't have any particular verse in mind this time so I went the comment section of Living Proof's blog and checked out some of the other verses that some of my Siesta Sistas have chosen. I loved them all like crazy but there was one that stuck out to me. And I always think it's a good idea for me to choose a Scripture that is relevant at this particular moment in my life because I will recite it faithfully more often and gets totally engraved upon my heart. So without further ado, my verse is:
When I get to a week that I am going to STL for Herceptin (as I am on Friday) I always get a little anxious in the pit of my stomach. I pray and pray and pray for peace and calmness but my blood pressure is always off the charts, even if I appear to be "calm!" I am anxious about my labs, about what the dr will say, about my port being accessed, just the whole thing in general. I joke that my blood pressure goes sky high as soon as I walk into that building...but I am totally serious! Can you imagine what kind of state I would be in without the LORD?! Without His grace falling all over me and sustaining me? I can't imagine, and I never want to. Praise God for His faithfulness and His mercy, His unfailing love and His "peace...which transcends all understanding..." Philippians 4:7. So if you would say a little prayer for our safety as we travel and for a good dr visit, labs, and treatment this girl would be so thankful. And there's a chance that Jack and I will be going to STL on Thursday night to catch the Cardinals game (without kids...shhhhhh!) so if you want to throw in a prayer for a Cardinals win, that would be okay, too :-) Love ya'll!!
