Shattered Plans

I've have had another chance to learn that it is wise to hold your plans loosely....again.

On Sunday my husband said, "Hey- I'm gonna take off on Tuesday for our anniversary." He then offered to go over to our sons house Tuesday morning so I could take care of stuff I wanted to take care of.  Well our mowers have been down and he had been able to get our push mower running on Sunday so he had mowed the front yard and while he was doing that I had used my reel mower to mow a section of the back yard, but there is still the chicken run and a large part of the rest of our yard that needs to be mowed. So my plan was to get up Tuesday morning and mow the back yard. Then get my shower and get ready for the day.

Then Monday morning my husband called and said that he was not gonna be able to take the day off. Plan #1

So plan #2 was gonna be a regular Tuesday for me. I would go to my sons house at 7am and wait for SweetPea to wake up.

Well several hours later I would learn that the plan would be changing again.

My husband started having chest pains - gave me a big scare when after he told me about the chest pains I could not get ahold of him for several hours. Then he decided to go to the hospital. He got to the hospital by 1pm and by about 4pm they had decided to keep him overnight.

So now we were at plan #3 for my Tuesday.

Here it is 7pm on Tuesday - we are still at the hospital. Waiting on the results from the stress test. He has begun to throw up so there is a good chance that they will keep him again. We really need for the dr to get to the bottom of what is causing his pain. Hopefully we will have some answers soon.

So my time off to get more rest and be able spend more time having quiet time-- has not been so quiet. God has blessed me with a little time here and there for me to refresh my soul., and I am thankful for that. Today has been a long day and I'm tired and worn down. So please keep my husband and I in your prayers. :0)

***A big thanks to my husband for the title of this post. Told him I was having a hard time coming up with a title and after a brief description of what it was about he came up with it.


  1. Oh, Lisa. I'm sorry to hear you're both going through this. You're in my prayers. Wedding anniversary wishes to you (our anniversary is tomorrow).

  2. Praying for your husband...So sorry I didn't read this sooner...I want to say Happy Anniversary, but that seems like your anniversary was quite stressful instead of happy!
    It is now Wednesday evening and I hope your husband is home from the hospital and things are alright?
    Praying for you both, In Jesus~ Lisa

  3. Just now saw this...praying for you both, and I hope you are home and resting again this evening!

  4. Shattered plans are nothing compared to health and rest at home~ I'm praying for you both tonight, and pray you both get home and are okay and get rest!!!


Hello~ I love getting your comments. I have made a few changes to make things a little easier for you and hoping a more enjoyable experience for both you and I. Have a blessed day! :o)
