It is a place of quiet rest that I have found when I am writing. I hope that someone will find my musings helpful in some way. Psalm 23:2 "He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restoreth my soul."
My Green Pasture....

A Rainbow In The Night
My new year has started out a bit on the stormy side and a little bit scary. Since Christmas my disease, Sarcoidosis has truly had a mind of its own. I have tapered off of the Prednisone I was taking for it due to some unpleasant side effects. My body has decided to give me a true battle. My hair began falling out soon after Christmas and is now very thin to the point of needing a wig. My bones and joints are in constant pain and I now have daily headaches rather than my occasional ones. I now have cataracts in both of my eyes and have chronic fatigue. I am taking about eight different prescription medications however I still wake up in the night. This has become a blessing however. I am finding that at these times when I wake up is when I feel a sense of calm and peace that I know only comes from God alone. It is refreshing to know that He is with me and knows all about what is going on in my body even though the doctors don't seem to have a clue. It is amazing that even though I am having a terrible time with my memory that it is at these times when I am quietly laying in bed that verses I memorized over thirty years ago or more come popping into my head. They are comforting, reassuring, reminding me of God's presence. It is as if He is giving me a rainbow in the night.
