Fearless Friday

I am a testament of how God’s love goes before us. I was due to leave for Seattle a week from tomorrow. I was going for my younger granddaughter’s gymnastics exhibition and my older granddaughter’s violin concert. They didn’t know, it was going to be a surprise!

A couple weeks ago I started to experience some different floaties in my right eye that were different enough I thought I needed to go to an ophthalmologist. I saw him today. I have a detached retina. I will go see a specialist tomorrow and most likely have surgery on Monday.

If I didn’t think I needed to see a doctor or didn’t get the appointment before I left or got on the plane to Seattle I would’ve had a serious medical emergency. But God protected me every step of the way!

I will be out of commission for a while as I have to keep my head down towards my knees at all times for a couple weeks to lessen the pressure on my eye. Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? Apparently there is some kind of chair or apparatus I can get to help with this. If I can, I’ll share pictures. I would appreciate all your prayers!

Psalm 61

To the Chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.

“Hear my cry, O God;

Attend to my prayer.

From the end of the earth I will cry to You,

When my heart is overwhelmed;

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For You have been a shelter for me,

A strong tower from the enemy.

I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;

I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

For You, O God, have heard my vows;

You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name.

You will prolong the king’s life,

His years as many generations.

He shall abide before God forever.

Oh, prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him!

So I will sing praise to Your name forever,

That I may daily perform my vows.”

  1. Jo Ann, truly God is with you! Getting it diagnosed and surgery completed quickly without a medical emergency on an airplane is a blessing. Praying for successful surgery, quick healing, God’s loving presence over shadowing you throughout the pre-surgery, surgery and post-surgery time, in a tangible way.

  2. Praying for you. I work for an optometrist and although we have to refer people out for this it’s quite common and lots of positive results
