Back In SC... and Life Continues!

I had a very pleasant flight. Well, two flights. I flew Kansas City to Atlanta, then Atlanta to Charlotte. AirTran. First time flying with them, but I liked them. Very nice people, free soft drinks and pretzels in coach.
Before I left our cat Cinnamon was sick, very sick, with a severe urinary tract infection. She had to be hospitalized. Cost my parents over $500. Now our kitten Baryon is sick! We don't have the money for a vet. But God is good, and I was describing his symptoms on a message board I'm a member for, in case someone knows home remedies or whatnot and someone volunteered to send my vet $50! It won't be enough to cover all of it, I'm sure, but maybe with that as a 'down payment' we can work out a way to pay the rest back to the vet soon? Nothing can be done until Monday anyway.
THEN I get on facebook and find out Tabitha went to the ER today! Ruptured cyst! She's apparently home, because she posted this on facebook, but she's in horrible pain and won't be able to work this weekend. She's a bartender and currently is only working the weekends (she works 31 hours on Fridays and Saturdays) so she's forfeiting a whole week's pay, plus accruing medical bills.

Oh, life!
Personally, I know Jesus is supreme, and I'm going to pray over both of these situations. I know my friend reads this blog so I want her to know: I LOVE YOU! I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!

Jesus is awesome. It is harder here, much harder, to keep my mind God centered, but I know that that's the only way to live. How much more alive I feel with God than ever 'living life' without Him. (Not that 'life' without Him is really life at all!)

Anyway, I should go. My parents will be leaving either late tonight (Saturday night) or Sunday morning for their vacation. If I get our kitten to the vet, I'll have to walk him, as I won't have access to a vehicle. Luckily, while we are in the middle of nowhere, we are actually in walking distance of the vet (less than a half, I think). Thank you, Lord, for that!

[PS. I had actually posted this and was looking it over, and I have a verse-a-day app to the side and the verse for today is so wonderful and encouraging I thought I'd copy and paste it in here, because while anyone at my site can read it today, tomorrow it will change. Plus, someone at won't be able to see the app anyway. Here:
"We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed."

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NASB)]
