Sad to say……

I won’t be going to market.

After all this planning…my trip is paid for….and I am in the home stretch of leaving. I am packed, Meals are made for my family, lunches packed. Errands are run. I spoke with my Grandma. She actually has to have a stint put in her heart. The surgeon says it’s far to blocked to wait until next week {when I can be home} She could have a heart attack at any time. For normal people this may be a normal procedure. It’s iffy with my grandma…she doesn’t have the best health…she has gone in several times for a “normal” procedure and been in a life or death situation…having a 2 month stay. My aunt K has always been the one to take care of her…well She just got married and moved to Florida. So now my grandma is alone and scared…I am two hours away…and closer than Florida.

So I cancelled my flight…..I am making arrangements for everyone. I will be driving to Spokane tomorrow so I can take her in for Surgery and have peace of mind that all will be ok.

I have to say I have been going back and fourth….trying to decide if I am being selfish….{If I were to go on a trip}. WWJD? What if I were older, by myself and scared. I have Jesus so I wouldn’t ever truly be alone…and my grandma doesn’t. SO I need to step in for Jesus and be the light. It’s crazy talk to some but I felt like after I prayed I got this feeling of …I am doing his work and he will take care of me”. I had immediate relief. He has met my financial needs and everything in between.

So as upset as I am that I can’t go on this trip…I know that greater things are on the horizon…and I am doing what I am supposed to…even though a part of me wants to be selfish. I am only human afterall. I can’t give into myselfish desires…when I am keeping my eyes on Jesus.

So if you could all just pray for my Grandma that would be appreciated. I have not carved out five days for anyone recently… God carved out 5 days in my schedule for a reason.
