Next Chapter

The afternoon before surgery and I received a diamond from a teacher.  A shiny little plastic diamond with a very large meaning.  When I asked the meaning behind her little gift she said “you have done very well under pressure”. 

Her inspiration?  At the very bottom of all my work email it states a diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure.   Teachers have superpowers. Her timing could not have been more perfectly planned. It was as if she heard a whisper from God. I needed a reminder of who I was…

As I sit in the waiting room right now I’m both nervous and equally excited for the outcome. Although this experience has forever changed me I am looking forward to feeling a little bit like the old me.

In retrospect, considering all I’ve been through I have done well under pressure. I’m not quite a diamond yet but God’s still working on me, one chapter at a time.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:10
