Savior, please...

Boy, just when I thought maybe I could come up for air...

My sweet Lulu has been in the emergency veterinary hospital for almost a week now. We just got the definitive diagnosis back the day before yesterday. She has Lyme disease. She is a very sick girl and I am praying, praying, praying. I feel like I'm always requesting your prayers, but if you would be so kind to lift up my sweet Lulu, I would be so grateful. As you know, she is quite special to me.

Here's Lulu today during my visit with her:

Gosh I just love that sweet, sweet face...everyone at the hospital is in love with her! Can't blame them! She is the gentlest soul. But I need her to be home with me, where she belongs.

Friends...I feel like it is just "issue" after "issue." My Sweet Hubby's illness and his Homegoing, my mother's long illness, things I have not shared here on ItTR, my mother's current illness, my father's health status, now Lulu. One thing on the heels of another.

All I know to do is keep clinging to the One Who promised that He would never leave us nor forsake us. He promised.

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV

In the meantime, I'm re-reading the Book of Job and Dr. J. Vernon McGee's corresponding study. And like Job said: Blessed be the name of the Lord!

And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
Job 1:21

I love the quote that says I know God doesn't give me any more than I can bear, but I sure wish he didn't trust me so much! You have indeed been through the fire - and more that we don't know about!

Did the disease come from a tick? I am so sorry!

Oh, I'm so sorry! It is hard for our babies to be sick. They just look to us for everything. I'm praying for things to work out o.k! I know what a comfort our dogs are for us.

Hey Gigi, everytime I hear that song you posted on here about "the pain that you've been feeling, is just the dark before the morning..." I think of you and pray for you.
He has promised:)

Blessings to you tonight,
