RAISE YOUR VOICE!! EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT TYPE 1 DIABETES!!!
I've started three different blogs today....I just can't seem to formulate my thoughts into anything cohesive. It's just a mess up there!!:-)
Having only dealt with Type 1 Diabetes for 4 months, I still feel like the new kid on the block. This diabetes stuff is still being forced into a permanent position in our family mold. Sometimes it seems like "old hat", but so much of it is still new and scary.
Today I really just want to be thankful for all the lessons God has brought our way through this disease. It has been and continues to be a trial, but a refining trial. Yes, DIABETES STINKS.....it isn't fun, and at times I wish we could go back to when eating wasn't even a second thought for J.J.. But we know this trial has been sifted through the Father's loving hands before reaching us. He knows and is faithful to sustain us.
This song touched my heart today, and really explains where I am with this new world of Type 1 Diabetes. To God be the glory!!
