DON’T say That’s okay/It’s alright

Because it’s NOT.
Shortly before our youngest daughter died, a captain at l’Armée du Salut (Salvation Army) near our Brussels apartment commented on what a shame is was for the better behaved youth of a family to be killed in an accident (rather than the more troublesome one).
>more on that later<see ♡ below
Ecstatic would not be an excessive word to describe the news that we’ve FINALLY zeroed in on the right coumadin/warfarin dose! What does that mean? It means I don’t have to go to the lab every week to get my blood drawn. YAY!
Also, when I visited the cardiologist last week, he agreed to weaning me from the metoprolol (lopresor) they put me on in the hospital in January to keep my heart rate down.

I have never been one to spend too much time doing my hair. In fact, my daughters probably suffered because I fashioned theirs in the simplest manner possible while tbey were growing up. So, you’d think what’s happening now would be no big deal.
The other day a well-meaning, sincere person commented that “It’s okay” for my hair to be falling out from the chemo. But, would it be acceptable to say such a thing about losing a finger or having a limb amputated? I think not.
We don’t have to take lying down what’s been stolen from us, but we do need to adjust.

♡ How could one justify the thought that losing a problematic child would be any easier than losing an ideal one? Is one more valuable than the other? Selah
It is often said after a young couple miscarries or loses a baby that they can always have another. PLEASE…like one can replace the other. Such losses are not like telling a crying child who just dropped their ice cream cone that they can have another one!

And they overcame him (the accuser of our brethren) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Rev. 12:11

We’ve all been on the receiving end of insensitive remarks and have committed such faux pas ourselves. We need to cast down every thought that is unworthy in the eyes of our Lord and does not glorify Him, including resentment or unforgiveness.
