I've been reading and re-reading Psalm 1 this week, I guess I was just struck by the difference between a tree planted near a stream whose roots can always have water and who is anchored well, vs the chaff which blows wherever the wind wants to take it. Kind of like a tumbleweed blowing across the fields.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so; but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
The first couple days of this week have gone fairly well. Yesterday it was in the upper 60's so we went to a nearby nature preserve and did a short hike on one of the trails. I had quite a headache though during our hike. If I take Ibuprofen often enough, it helps a fair amount. My hair (what short little bit was left) has continued coming out, so now it pretty much looks totally bare.
Thanks for your prayers, just continue to pray that the headaches would be endurable. I really would rather not go back on the steroid (which is the plan if they get worse).
