What I don't want to talk about

I don't want to talk about this.



I don't want to talk about the fever my sweet girl has, with no other symptoms.  Except the tell-tale drool and extra saliva, indicative of a sore throat. 



I don't want to talk about the 2012 log I started today, tracking back a fever she had a few weeks ago that I didn't want to talk about.  (ironic that it's on a page labeled "fashion".  I have no time for fashion in my life!) 

And then a bad cold the week after that.

And now this.  The temps aren't as high as they were last year before her surgery, but it seems that perhaps we only had a two month respite from this.

But I don't want to talk about it.  I don't want to talk about the car problems my mother in law has been having and how Bean didn't get home until 9:45pm last night after waiting with her for a tow truck.  I don't want to talk about discouragement and loneliness.  I don't want to talk about how I was up with Lily in the middle of the night and then laid awake for an hour, mad.  And praying.  

I don't want to talk about how the tonsillectomy wasn't a sure thing.  We see the specialist again next week and that's what they will say I'm sure.

I DO want to talk about how the problem this week with my mother in law's car is related to a recall and after much time and many phone calls (and a great honest auto repair) it's being towed to the dealership and will be fixed for free.

I DO want to talk about how no weapon formed against us shall prosper. (link

I DO want to talk about the healing I will continue to proclaim for my girl, until I see it to completion.

There's a lot I don't want to talk about today.  But am speaking scripture over my family.  For the word of God is powerful and that's the power that we need right now.
