Not Me Monday........

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I DID NOT spend the week consumed with thoughts of my thyroid gland and vocal cords.

I DID NOT spend MUCH time in prayer.

I DID NOT feel many friends and family lifting me up in prayer.

I DID NOT tell my Surgeon that I wanted him to treat my vocal cords like they were Whitney Houston's vocal cords.

He DID NOT look at me really strange when he realized I was not joking.

I DID NOT want to go to my Doctor's appointment alone.

I DID NOT think that if I received bad news, the hour drive home would give me time to deal with it before having to face my family.

I DID NOT hear my dear friend use the words "stubborn", "hardheaded" and "strong-willed" to describe me.

I DID NOT realize that description was 100% accurate.

I DID NOT receive unbelievably great news from the Surgeon.

I DID NOT experience, first hand, how God works.

I WAS NOT overwhelmed at God's presence and faithfulness.

I DID NOT discover new meaning to the words "simple" and "perfect".

I DID NOT have a vase of my favorite flowers waiting on my desk for me at work Friday morning.

I WAS NOT told by a friend at work God told her to pick them out of her yard and bring them to me, even though she had no clue they were my favorite.

I DID NOT have tears in my eyes as God, once again, made Himself known to me.

I DID NOT spend most of my weekend at the softball field watching eldest daughter play in a tournament.

I DID NOT enjoy every minute of it.

I DID NOT love, love, love the beautiful weather this weekend.

I DID NOT enjoy a Harley ride yesterday.

I DID NOT wear my new leather chaps.

I DID NOT think of all the times I have said, "I will never own, much less wear, leather chaps".

I DO NOT realize this post is way too long.

I DO NOT hope you all have a wonderful week and that God will make Himself known to each of you in ways you've never imagined.

I DO NOT anticipate, with excitement, how He will work in my life this week.
