A New Mountain To Climb

I love mountains and their Mountain Alaskamajesty.  I think the highest mountains I have ever seen are in  Alaska.  They are absolutely breathtaking.  My personal journey has taken me to a new mountain to climb.  It looks daunting and feels impossible.  But I always remind myself that my help is in the name of the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth.  Psalm 12:48  Yes he made Heaven and Earth and all of the beautiful  mountains.  About a month ago, I started feeling a pain in my  hip.  I thought I had just hurt it  some how  working in the yard or something.  I ignored it but soon found myself limping and unable to sleep because movement in bed would cause the hip to start hurting.  I had a regular  checkup with my primary care doctor and when I had to get on the exam table I was unable to do so.  It was pain so strong it caused me to yelp out.  She asked what was going on.  I told her its my hip, I think I  hurt it some how.  She said your acting like you have broken your hip.  She sent me out for x-rays at a hospital and said wait in the waiting room because if your hip is broken, you will have to stay in the hospital and have surgery.  She said she would call me when she got the report, she had ask for an asap.  I waited and suddenly I looked to my left and the Doctor was sitting beside me.  I said why are you here?  Do I  have a broken hip?  She said, I came so I didn’t have to tell you this on the phone. Your hip is not broken, but you have bone cancer. Again, that fear came, and quickly left when I got to the car to tell my very sick husband this horrible news.  He just lost it and sobbed, because we love each other so much.  Strength came surging through me again after some tears with Jerry.  We can do this!!  He is battling Giant Cell Arteritis an auto immune disease that attacks the bodies arteries.  He is having treatment from his third flare of the disease.  Which requires him  to begin treatment all over again at a great cost to his body.  He is now in a wheel chair.  He needs me and I need Him.   Nothing is too hard  for the Lord!  We will climb this massive mountain to the top and our Lord will help us.

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
