I am glad Rick gave me the journal to record my doctor’s appointments and my thoughts. I am not in the habit of keeping up with a journal. But I felt such a peace, so I continued writing, searching for, and reading scriptures. At this time, I had this overwhelming desire to write a daily devotional for publication. Over and over in my mind, I thought about the devotional being 365 days of encouraging scriptures with a picture for each day. When I started recording scriptures over 4 months ago, I would find a scripture that would encourage me depending on my state of mind. As I found a scripture, I would compare the scripture to the King James Version (KJV), New King James Version (NKJV) and New International Version (NIV). Then I would select the scripture and write it down with the bible version. I wanted to write the “Word” exactly as it is written in the bible, according to the bible version used. When I went to the doctor on November 2nd, I was scheduled for a CT scan on the same day as my vascular access port. By this time, I had moved from the sofa recliner to the sofa. I was not able to sit up for any length of time before I had to lay down from the pain of sitting on my bottom. I had my port surgery and CT scan on November 9th. The port surgery went fine, the CT scan showed that I had an abscess. I had another surgery scheduled for November 15th. Psalm 23:4, Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
