I've been away for a few days, 
not because anything is wrong. 

My ENT visit went well. 
The PA was wonderful, great bedside manner. 

He had already read my chart. 
He knew what was going on, 
talked about the what nots.and what could be's. 
He prepared me well 
for what the doctor would do. 

He was very personal.  
Asked about my move to TN. 
Asked about my family. 

The Doc, not so personal, 
curt and to the point.

He just wanted to do his job and be done. 

I have a cyst on my epiglottis.
It is small, nothing to worry about.
No nodules on the vocal cords.
Lots of reflux and congestion.
He's treating the reflux and has referred me to an allergist. 

Doc: "What's that worried look on your face.
Are you worried?"
Me:  "Are YOU worried?"

Doc:  "Not at all.  We'll take a look at it again in 8 weeks.
If it has grown, we put you to sleep and get it.
If not, we don't worry about it."

At some point, I have to learn to trust.
So, that's what I'm doing.

The doc who referred me says he's the best. 
I will trust him. 

The GREAT PHYSICIAN says I should trust in HIM.
I choose to trust HIM.

Mr. H has taken a long, HARD look at the budget.
We've robbed from Peter to pay Paul
and Peter and Paul have exhausted their resources. 

The answer is HARD.
If I want to stay in TN and want a house, 
I've got to get a job. 

There's more month left at the end of the money.

So, prayers needed as I once again
revise the resume and look for a job.

Have a good beginning of a new week 
and a new month. 


  1. Trust is hard sometimes! God knows what it is and he IS the great physician! Praying for you and what lies ahead with a job! HUGS!

  2. Prayers and love and hugs!
    I always have a worried look when I am at the doctor!!!! : )

  3. I pray that our blessed LORD Jesus will open the doors for you both to have gainful employment and stay safe.
    You're right about the trust. I've been having to work on that myself, but it's getting better. Time to "let go and let God" as the sign states in our sunday school class.
    Hope your day is blessed my friend. ~:)

  4. So glad to hear that your condition isn't serious and yes, it's hard to trust sometimes, isn't it? There is a job out there for you, I just know it. He opened the doors for the move, He will open the next one too :)

  5. I'm so glad that nothing serious was found. I too have a hard time trusting but sometimes that all I can do. I hope you can find just the right job that you will enjoy and bring in the needed extra money. Have a great day.

  6. Sorry about the problems, will put you both on pray list.
    I have been getting my new doctors in a row, doctors can be so unfeeling.
    I had one ask me why the Hell did I move back to the Memphis area!
    I told him we lost our last son in June and we were getting
    old and needed to be near our two girls. He just looked at me didn't
    say sorry or kiss my foot. I didn't go back to him.

  7. Glad that it went OK, hope that it continues to go well. Good luck with the job search! xx

  8. Bonnie, saying prayers for you, dear. Trust in the Lord.....that is good advice today, thank you.

    love, ~Sheri

  9. I've been where you are, between a rock and a hard place, many times. Sending you a hug...and prayers that God would MOVE in your favor. And soon!
    Trust is a hard thing at times. Your attitude is amazing.
    Praying, praying, my friend!

  10. HinBonnie, I love the verse, trust is a hardship.Blessings Francine.

  11. I think there is a job out there waiting for you, and good to hear your doctor is upbeat in his diagnosis, which at this point, is "wait."

  12. I'm right there with you... in needing a job. I keep pushing it off until my youngest graduates in a few months. Take care!! Have a great week

  13. Bonnie, I'm glad that doctor appointment is behind you and lots of bad "stuff" has been ruled out.
    I hope the perfect job presents itself at exactly the right time. Your faith is great and I know
    that God is gonna honor that.

  14. Many times when we were at the "end" of the $$$, God took care of us...(He does everyday). Hubby isn't a believer, I am. For awhile I thought I would have to get a job and then hubby took a full time job. Answer to my prayers!

  15. Ohhhhh how I understand about that budget.....truly I do. Keeping you in prayer, gurl. Blessings

  16. I am praying for you this morning. I will pray for your health and a job that God can use you in a mighty way.
    You have been a blessing to me with your blog hugs and prayers!

  17. praying for all of your needs to be met

  18. I've been prayed for by so many as I've been on my cancer journey, so I will gladly offer prayers for you and a "not to worry" diagnosis.

    Good luck with the job hunt!

    Warm hugs,


I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
