Aaaah, Thursday, almost Friday... I think I'm gonna make it!
Tucker is back to school and mostly recovered (thanks be to God)! I am so glad that this didn't drag on for 4 weeks!
I had to go to the chiropractor yesterday and I had a severe kink inbetween my shoulder blades and into my neck. I wasn't able to turn to the left. I called my husband and said please you have to go with me, I'm petrified. You see, I haven't been to a chiropractor in over a year. I was going, for two years. I had severe back problems, I was in horrible pain. It only got worse over the two years. I finally got tired of going twice a month or more. Went to physical therapy where I ended up in even more pain. The worst pain I've ever been in in my life! So finally an MRI was done and I was sent to an orthopedic surgeon. I had a herniated disc (L5) and something (I don't remember what they called it) in my L4 and something in my SI joint. So... what I have is inoperable. So we did a set of 3 steroid injections. Something I don't ever wish on my worst enemy but they helped! Which most people say they don't but they did help me but I truly believe it was the prayer and the laying of hands that brought my healing from God. So anyways... back to my story... that is why I'm terrified. It has taken me a year to get my back to the point that I can run again and lift fairly heavy weights when working out and I don't ever ever want to be in that place again. So he did adjust my mid back and neck and I feel so much better today. I do have to go back Friday so he can finish my neck but that'll be that. I will not fall into the trap of going all the time. And I don't care if he says it's okay to adjust my lower back, I say no it's not! It will adjust itself naturally with excercise and stretching.
But the point of my story (I'm having trouble focusing today) is that my husband went with me and gave me support. We finally got home at 6:00 and ordered pizza and we actually got to sit at the table and eat as a family. We spent time together. He gave Tuck a bath for me so I could relax and rest my neck with ice. It was great evening. It's been a great couple of days. The Lord is still working on me and filling me with a renewed sense of love for my husband and I praise Him for it. I am truly filled with the joy of the Lord. I head today that those of us that suffer here on earth will be rewarded in heaven for those sufferings. So we are to rejoice through our sufferings because with each sorrow Jesus is building our mansion. Isn't that a wonderful way to look at our sorrows and sufferings? I pray for each of you today, Neicey I pray for you and for peace and for the ability to no longer live in fear, and for your protection. Kris, I pray for your new found motivation and for healing in your body. Pat, I pray for continued success and joy and for peace in your busy house and healing in your shoulder. I also pray your faith in the Lord will be restored. Emmie, I pray that I can learn from your posts about friendship! Thanks to you all. Have a truly blessed day!
