Who Am I Today?

I was diagnosed with Chiari on 9/26/06 and I am amazed at how much my health has declined in only a year's time. I have had all kinds of battles in my head as I desperately try to grasp a tiny thread ~ trying to remember who I was, who I am and who I am becoming. Chiari has forced me to take a good, hard look at myself ~ will I fall or stand in the face of trials and hardships? My colors are true ~ my faith in the Lord, strong ~ but it's still a struggle.

My life journey has not been an easy one, but it has defined who I am and has made me strong. Several near death experiences ~ numerous surgeries ~ witness to the death of my brother ~ a child of divorced parents ~ survivor of two miscarriages ~ and now, Chiari. I AM a SURVIVOR ~ I won't go quietly into the night without a fight. Eye of the Tiger ~ Once again, I am facing my Goliath, but I know that God has incredible plans for my life. He will use this bump in the road for good.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I feel incredibly blessed that God has placed this struggle in my life so that I have the opportunity to draw closer to Him.
