This is Odie checking in with you for another Saturday. I hope you are having a good day.
Currently, at writing time, I am not having the best day. I write these a few days ahead of time so that I have time to edit and Dad has time to help me get the post ready to publish.
I am still dealing with Covid. I am hoping by publication time that this will all be in the rearview mirror for me. This has been a rollercoaster of a ride. I am ready for it to end.
I am so thankful that my symptoms have been mostly manageable! God has truly helped me! I am so grateful.
My family and friends have been super supportive and helpful. I appreciate the prayers and encouragement! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The taste and smell decided to leave me on Day 7. This is a symptom that I have heard and read about for months. I had hoped to avoid losing my taste if at all possible. Sadly I had no control over what really happened.
Now I can faintly taste some things. Sweet things are what I savor the most. At least I get to enjoy a little goodness. Today I am dreaming of eating a Chocolate Cover Keylime Pie on a stick from Key West, Florida.
It is the strangest sensation to bite into a piece of food that is normally full of flavor and taste nothing. I know that I am not alone in dealing with this symptom. I hope and pray that it does not last long.
I know God is in control of all things. I plan to survive victoriously!
I have been encouraging myself with this scripture for the last couple of days. Covid can not take away the goodness of God in my soul!
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalms 34:8
Thanks for reading. See you next week.
