A Little Break.......

Hello Hello! I tell you, it seems like weeks since my last post! :o) I hope everyone is doing well, had a fabulous weekend and ready for a brand new week! My weekend was good, a bit busy! Honey and I did manage on yesterday to visit El Prado Rose Garden. Walking through this lush rose garden is like visiting a rose garden wonderland! The fragrance is absolutely beautiful and the roses magnificent! Such a beautiful garden with wonderful little benches for you to sit and linger a while. The children just love it! Couples adore it, and photographers flock to it. I must admit it is quite romantic being among all those lovely roses! The above rose so remind me of the lovely shades of Autumn, so I am calling it 'Autumn Rose'. For you rose experts out there, is there an Autumn rose? I just fell in love with this beautiful little rose!

I have a little something I want to share with you. About three years ago I under went a surgery for a Benign Aneurysmal Bone Cyst in my left Mandible. This is a very rare tumor, and I mean rare. :o) According to medical research, there are only nine known cases in the United States to have this type of tumor and I just happen to be one of them. The tumor is usually found is younger people and I am the oldest in age thus far! Hmmmm, now how did that happen! :o)

My most recent CAT Scan showed a small tumor arising in that bone once again. Now that is not what I wanted to hear at all. I am scheduled for surgery September 30th with several pre op appointments set for the next coming days. I think this will be a good time to take a little break and get prepared, and maybe eat a few of my favorite foods, because after surgery it is jello and broth for me for a while. :o) Keep me in your prayers, and I promise in a few weeks to check in and let you all know just how I am doing. My Etsy Shop will be open! I have given Honey a crash course in Etsy and he will be taking over for me for a little while. I will be putting a few new pieces in the shop over the next week or so, so make sure you drop by and take a look! :o)

You know, life it so unpredictable but knowing my Lord and Saviour the way I do and just how much He loves me so helps me prepare for what this life has to bring. I love Him so much and it is only He that has granted me the favor to keep on moving forward. Thank you so much my blogging friends, and I will touch bases with you in a couple weeks! :o) Have a beautiful week, and I will chat with you soon!

"For where two or three are gathered
together in My name, I am there
in the midst of them."

Matthew 18:20 (NKJV)

Beverly....I will be praying for you. Six years ago a mass was found near the optical nerve in my eye. The specialist I went to said that these kinds of tumors often recur. I had surgery and made it almost two years...then it recurred. After the second surgery I have been ok. I hope the same for you. God bless you.

I am so sorry that you have to undergo another surgery but I am thankful that they have found this and can treat it.

Take care of yourself!

I will watch for your healthy return to your blog.

The rose photo is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it. I'll bet that garden was delightful!

Beverly,
Know my prayers are here to lift you up...daily...and that God lay his healing hand on the tumor...and just eradicate it from your being. I pray for wisdom for those that tend to your medical needs and I pray for peace for you and your honey during this time. I know God's hand is in all of this...I will leave you with this scripture that I find peace in...I was given a book called "God's Medicine"...from a friend who compiled different scriptures for trials in our life...there is one chapter on "God's Love", another on "Peace" another on "God's Healing" and the last section is on "Praise"...I would love to send you a copy...if you want to send me your email address...just check my site and click on to my email addy and I will be more than happy to send you a copy. I currently have it by my bedside b/c of a unexpected health issue I am dealing with...but I have copies to give away...and I would love for you to have one...it has helped me tremendously...

Matthew 19:26 KJV...Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossilbe; but with God all things are possible.

Blessings, Sweet Beverly, you remain in my prayers and heart.

Well, I wanted to keep in touch with you after my recent purchase, but I didn’t think it was going to have to be in regard to your health. Please know that I will be praying for you as you undergo this surgery and recovery time. “But they that wait upon the Lord, they shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Carolyn said...

Oh, Beverly, my first response was, "oh no, not Beverly"! I do like that word, benign, though. And even better, your uplifting relationship with our Father.

I love your description of that wonderful visit to the Rose Garden. Your attitude is most lovely, as are you, along with that Autumn Rose that you love! Count me among those who are thinking about you, and praying for you and Honey . . . . during your days of prep in every way, the surgery, and for that quick recovery.

PS. You were the first person I had planned to revisit today, after finally getting another post up. I so appreciated your sweet and faithful comments this summer, despite my long interims in posting and visiting. You are a dear, Beverly, and am sending you mega, mega hugs!!! :-)

Mouse said...
