I'm still here though. I've just been in a holding pattern mentally and physically. I'm not gaining, I'm not losing...just kind of maintaining. Waiting for the 2nd meeting in regards to the gastric bypass procedure. That will happen on August 19th and should be the final meeting prior to actual approval and scheduling.
I feel like there are big things coming in the future and I am looking forward to being able to write here and get it all down "in ink" so I'll be able to look back and see how the whole process unfolded. And the more I talk to people, the more I am seeing how deep weight loss issues run in a person's psyche. I really believe that this process is going to open up a whole new door of ministry that seems to be so needed.
So for right now, I am just looking at things like I am preparing myself for the remodel. I'm sorting through some emotional things, trying to put some bad habits away, and just generally going over the blueprints to make sure I'm making the right decisions.
I know this is not the exciting part. It's the wait and wait and wait some more part. I am looking forward to getting the construction started so that I can be one step closer to having a temple that is not on the verge of being deemed unfit for human habitation!
