Circular Anxiety

Tomorrow I'm scheduled for surgery. It's not huge, it's not life-threatening, it should be life improving - but it's general anesthesia. I'm anxious -- not about having the surgery, about not having the surgery. I'm anxious that it will get postponed at the last minute and I'll have to be anxious all over again. And what anxiety would that be...that it would be put off again. And so on ad infinitum...

Time to take up a contemplation on redemptive suffering...


  1. I read a good one somewhere lately.

    My prayers go with you.

  2. My hope then... to hear all about the surgery.

  3. I hope your anxiety is relieved and the surgery is a success! Wishing you a good recovery and keeping you in prayer.

  4. Hope all is successfully over by now, Michelle. Holding you in the Light.

  5. Ah, yes, the joys of anxiety...

  6. Touche, kb!

    Seriously, I dumped all that anxiety into the Body of Christ, marked for a friend in need.

    All, thanks for prayers and hope and light!
