I guess Sum1 and I were both in pain Sunday. I ended up going to the ER with abdominal pain and was admitted for emergency surgery. I had a 6.2mm kidney stone blocking the duct in my kidney. I had a preexisting stage three kidney failure so they were taking no chances. My surgery ended up being Wednesday and aside from a little residual bleeding and a stint I am okay now. Thanks for your prayers.
I like to give credit where I feel credit is due. Therefore I would like to take a moment and give you all a report of the miracle that occurred in my life. You see I three years ago I was living alone in an apartment on the edge of town in Clarksburg WV. I would often go for days at a time without seeing a soul. I was very lonely and depressed. I prayed about it and God answered my prayer by giving me the opportunity to move to Barboursville WV and live at the West Virginia Veterans Home. To do so however meant that I had to give up my income because you are not permitted to receive the income I had while living there. Some disability checks you cannot receive while in assisted living. My check was one such check. I gave it up and was promoted to floor leader of the Veterans Home. The floor leader is essentially like a RA in college. The job is pretty simple to do. The blessing is that it pays my rent, which covers my every expense, and gives me $355.00 per month spending money! I actually came out ahead! Now that has to be a God thing because only Christ could do such a thing! He took me from depressed and lonely to upbeat and involved and gave me spending money to boot!
Merry Christmas everybody! Remember that Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas! I studied the matter extensively and I believe that He really did rise from the dead. I know for a fact that the Roman historians of the era believed it and wrote about it.
I am heading to the finish line. I will graduate from Marshall University on December 14, 2019 with a Regents Bachelor of Arts degree (emphasis on psychology) with a minor in History. I was concerned over my science class because I thought I was doing poorly in science. I spoke with my professor and he assures me that as it stands right now I could do badly on the final and still pass the class! The only other class I have is history in which I currently have an A. I am definitely going to graduate, which means I can officially sign my name:
I've been working a lot the past few weeks and haven't gotten on here as much. My phone is always available. I am working as floor leader of the West Virginia Veteran's Home where I live and as a peer support specialist with the Huntington Corps of the Salvation Army. The corps and the Salvation Army is at the beginning of our Red Kettle campaign for 2019 and would appreciate your prayers and your donations. Believe me, every penny we get helps and the Lord we serve can stretch a penny a long ways! God bless you all! I love you all very much! You guys are my family just as much as my blood family is!
