Weather or Not

I have officially come to the conclusion that Norman(Oklahoma)cannot decide whether or not it's spring/summer/or the middle of winter!! In about the last week we have experienced all 3 seasons. It was in the 50's and 60's then up to almost 80 and within two days of the WARM weather it dumped about 6" of snow!!!!! Due to this crazy weather patterns I of course have a bit of cold. Nothing serious. I have been tracking my micro-spirometer it looks okay and no fever. . .ugh, but my head is stuffy and miserable. I am hoping I can kick this cold soon enough. I really want to get back to regularly working out and running but when I don't feel well, I don't push my body too hard.

This whole town has been almost completely shut down since Tuesday (the day the storm hit). It seems as though the city here isn't cut out to recover very well from this much snow all at once. The temps have been in the teens with wind chills waaaaay below that :) I am sure I am not the only person who is feeling this insane weather this winter. So for everyone who is dealing with freezing temps and snow and perhaps a cold or infection please know that I feel your pain.

I have a couple CF and transplant friends who are currently struggling with a few issues and I am keeping them in my prayers. Winters can be tough on all of us with compromised immune systems. Please say a prayer for all those who may be sick or in need of comfort.

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
