No, wait, not that doctor. (sadly)
I’m talking about the Naturalist doctor I go see every month or so.
THE GOOD NEWS: My gallbladder, the thing we went to save in the first place, is now healed! WOOHOO! I don’t have to loose it! My liver is also excellent. In case you wanted to know. Also, it’s not my fault I haven’t been able to loose weight! It’s my Adrenal glands. Yup. Apparently the’ve stagnated. (Envisions a pond filled with mosquitoes and algae) Which, in turn, gives me a weak heart. My low stamina isn’t my fault EITHER! …I don’t know whether or not these two facts fit in ‘the good news’ or the ‘bad news’ category. <_<
THE BAD NEWS: Remember how I can’t eat Grains? As in corn, rice, wheat, etc.? Yeah; that hasn’t changed. Now I can’t have potatoes or sugar, either. And when I say ‘sugar’ I mean ‘sugar/cane juice/honey’ etc. I’m using Coconut Crystals right now; and I’m going to give Xylitol a try. Yes. I tried Stevia. I’m sorry. I can’t do it.
SO! I can eat dairy, fruit, vegetables, meat, and beans. Yay. And take more pills. Yay. But hey, at least this should fix my health problems! Woot!
On another note… (because one can only handle so much medical information about a person they’ve most likely never met) – I’ve been asked to do a spread for the Winter issue of Aletheia magazine! *fist pump* YES! I’m very excited. I can’t wait to see what they throw at me.
I also finished a commission for Stephen L. of his character Stanton –
(Terrible quality because of our scanner)
And now I get to work on Stanton’s brother, Jayra, who ought to be fun as he’s the pretty-boy archer type. ^_^ THEN I have yet ANOTHER commission – LOKI! Yes, I know, pity me, you all know I hate drawing Loki… (yes, that was a heavy dose of sarcasm there.) It’s a picture for Sarah’s fanfiction of Loki and a girl named Rose… the angle is going to be weird, as she’s in a hospital bed and he’s standing up. Still not sure how I’ll work it.
But it should stretch my artistic abilities, anyway!
OH, YEAH, IMPORTANT NOTICE: We’re all going to Myrtle Beach from Tuesday to Thursday, so you won’t hear from me.
By the way, I was very tempted to give you all a dissertation on 1 John: 1. It really is a wonderful chapter, and it’s only ten verses long… what if I gave you a condensed version?
Ah, good. You’re all thrilled.
1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. (I love this…)
5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (I love this too…)
6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: (This makes me think of celebrities who claim to be Christians, but… well, certainly don’t act like it. I feel so awful for them – I’m glad we can pray!! And hey, it isn’t just celebrities. You find this a lot in the Church, too. We’re even guilty of doing it ourselves from time to time.)
7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (♥)
8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (Okay, yes. This would seem to refute the people who believe that true Christians don’t sin. That’s absolutely ridiculous. The Bible states that Jesus was the only sinless man – we CAN’T *NOT* sin. It’s human nature. But we can admit our sins to God, and He will forgive us. He promised; and you can’t get much better than that!)
9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (See? This says we WILL sin. You can’t be sinless; but you can strive for it!)
10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (See above 2 comments).
There! That wasn’t so hard, was it? And with that, I leave you. Thank you all, and good
