"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
I see this verse everywhere, but usually translated to Christ who strengthens me. Now, I love the KJ Bible - and I believe that every word of God is pure - and that if the KJ says "which", there's a reason. So one night I just pondered this verse, prayed, and the next morning I thought, what if I've been reading it wrong? What if I read it "I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me?" Emphasis on the comma. As in, the knowledge that I can do all things through Christ strengthens me. Does that make sense? It sure did to me....maybe I'm nuts, but it gives me comfort. Well, all of it gives me comfort, lol!
As I've mentioned in the previous post, a lot has been happening this year. Could I do all these things in my own strength? Um, NO. Mom just got out of an eleven day hospital stay, where they discovered she has aspiration pneumonia, she's taking thin liquids into her lungs. So now I'm thickening her water, protein drinks, and soup. It's tasteless, but I won't tell you what it looks like, ugh.
She seems to be doing better, she was really mentally altered there for awhile. She's very glad to be home, and I'm glad she's home as well. Now to see if we can get back into our routine of meals and medicines, exercises and cleanup....seems like if you stop even briefly, it takes extra effort to get back into it!
I've wanted to get outside with my camera, but have failed miserably. I must admit it was nice going up to the hospital twice a day, at least it got me outside....winter will come all too soon, and then I won't want to step out the door! I'm going shopping with my brother tomorrow, he needs something to wear to my son's wedding, and I need shoes. I think it will be nice to get out with him, and spend some time, just the two of us.
