A little health update

    I havent written about my health issues for a while so, I wanted to give you all an update. I am maintaining a comfortable lifestyle. My pain has gone from a 4 to about a 1-2. I can't say wether it has been a medication change or answer to prayer. But either way I am praising God for times with little to no pain. I have no clue if my mystery pain/illness will strike again but I am trying to live moment by moment thanking God I can focus on life without the worry of pain looming in the back of my mind. Anyone who has dealt with chronic pain can understand it takes a part of yourself captive. In those times I can only operate at 50% or less. That means my kids and husband get only half of me (if that). It makes me feel almost guilty even though it's out of my control.

But, I am truly blessed God has taught me to trust in Him and not take a day for granted. Things could be so much worse! Health is an absolute blessing! Don't take for granted that you are without pain or sickness. Being healthy and pain free is a blessing in itself!

 14 On a good day, enjoy yourself;
   On a bad day, examine your conscience.
   God arranges for both kinds of days
   So that we won't take anything for granted.
Ecclesiastes 7:14

If you are going through a hard time, (wether it's pain, sickness, family issues, or you just need a prayer ect...) please leave me a comment below and I would love to pray for you! 

Have a great day!

so good to hear you are doing well! I suffer from depression and although it is under control right now I get the being held hostage analogy!

by the way, I love checking in to see what you are wearing! I am a big fan of the thrift shopping and I love your style :)

Hello! I just discovered your blog. They also know what you mean. I'm 41, and in the last 12 days just do not remember without pain. My pain is all over the body, called fibromyalgia. Healthy people do not value what they have. The pain is constant, there are days that you can not move, do not attend the family, the house, good for nothing. Faith in God is what keeps me, helps me to fight every day, and I thank for being alive, and helps to support what I send. I will pray for you, a hug.
PD. I love your blog!
