Hidden

On the way home, I found something almost hidden behind a field.Thankfully, I had my camera with me.

"God's kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field for years and then accidentally found by a trespasser. The finder is ecstatic—what a find!—and proceeds to sell everything he owns to raise money and buy that field.”
Matthew 13:44


I want to thank all of you for your wonderful words and prayers, it means so much to me!! So here is my health update. This week, I went to the University Hospital three times for tests and had many conferences with the doctor. Thankfully, I was not admitted, but was so sick that I almost wished I had been.  They are now thinking I may have an auto immune disease, which requires a biopsy to diagnose. But they are temporarily bypassing the biopsy and starting me on the medicine for it. So if I get better, I likely have the disease. If I don't, then more testing. I should know in a week or two.

Hope your doctors can find the cause of your illness soon. Not knowing is always difficult. Take care of yourself!

LC said...

Ginny, how typical of you that in the midst of all your health challenges right now you would capture these remarkable images of God's beautiful world and that even with all you are going through you share the Word inspired and the Word His Son.

My prayers continue for you, Phil and all the medical folks who are involved in your care. And my prayers also include a "thank you" to God for you and your spirit of sharing healing and joy.

Karin said...

It's this waiting part, this uncertainty that's difficult to deal with. Trusting the Lord to touch your body with His healing! You're in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for updating us. Hugs!

These are beautiful pics. At first, I thought it was a brush fire, and to my amazement, it was a gorgeous sunset.
Hope you are feeling better...thinking of you.

Rose said...

Beautiful pics, Ginny. I am glad you are home...I just hope and pray they can give you some real relief. I had not fogotten, but I have had Lorelei and let me tell you she keeps us busy...especially me.

momto8 said...

well whatever the outcome you are in good hands. God bless you. your living faith is an inspiration to many.

LV said...

Always enjoy your visits, but hate to hear your health issues are not too good. I trust all gets worked out for the best. We have a man in our church that has completely lost his immune system. He seldom get out anymore and when he does he wears a big mask, gloves and whatever. Take care my friend.

Ann said...

Well I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You just get better :)
Lovely shots, the sky is such a gorgeous color
