I've been emailing and telling folks how much better my back is. Well, all I did was wrap a few (very few) presents, put several birds on my little Christmas trees and WHAM! Not only is the back screaming for me to sit down and forget about Christmas cookies, grocery shopping, stripping beds, dusting, vacumning and sink full of dishes---but it is sending subliminal messages to my toes. Each time I take a step with my left leg it sends sparks of numbing pain through my feet. When I switch weight to my right leg to compensate, my knee locks up.
THIS IS CRAZY!
So, the rest of the day I shall try and figure out a way to make some cookies, forget the house cleaning, and grocery shopping and rest my back. AGAIN. ~sigh~ On top of that, several of my prayer partners are under the weather as well as me and so I don't even know if they can read of my plight due to the illnesses they are battling.
It's all such a nuisance. And the pain is not nearly as bothersome as the thoughts of not having my house ready to receive my granddaughters in grand style for the holidays tomorrow afternoon. I hear the Voice. Do you?
"Martha, Martha. Mary chooses the best thing." Oh yeah, I hear Him. Time to go read and pray and meditate on the Lord and the goodness of His grace and mercy. Talk to you later. selahV
