I began this blog as sort of a therapeutic/spiritual journey. The last few years for me have been up and down and to be truthful it’s still somewhat like that. With degenerative disc disease I don’t know from one day to the next how I’m going to feel and how much pain I’m going to have in a day. It has been very depressing for someone like me who used to do everything at the speed of light. Now I’m told by physical therapists if I attempt to vacuum to do one room and sit down for a few hours and then do another. That is sooo hard for me however it’s something that I have to accept no matter how I don’t want to. If I have a good day with a low pain level and no fatigue I will take advantage of it but I will pay for it for the next several days. Increased activity means increased pain. I had a fusion in the top part of my neck in 2007. They removed two discs and did a bone graft and put a plate and screws in. It was not a total success so I have limited motion and cannot look down or up for any length of time and my hands are affected also. I’m not asking for pity but prayers for strength in my body.
I’ve had writer’s block for the last several weeks and I’m also contemplating redoing my blog. I feel that “The Road Back” for this last year has refreshed me spiritually and I feel revived in that area of my life. I have taken a couple on-line Bible studies recently that have shown me some things about myself for which I’m most thankful. I look forward to strengthening my trust in the Lord as I rid myself of the disappointments and hurts I experienced in the body of Christ. I pray that my desire to fulfill the plans that God had for me before the foundations of the earth will once again be stirred within me and that I will tear down any walls that I have built around myself.
So as I proceed with my plans in the blogging area I’m asking the Lord for wisdom and insight for the direction he wants me to proceed in. So at this time “The Road Back” is in contemplation. I thank those who have dropped by and I will post the new blog here when I get it up. I do have an idea I’m pondering on but not getting any confirmation on it but it will come. As for now, I look forward to the things God has in store for me.
