Make My Words a Blessing
This is the prayer I prayed today as I drove through heavy rain: "Please bless my efforts. Make my words a blessing."
As a teenager I was sent by my school to a Young Writer's Conference. That was the last time I've been to a writing conference. Until now. I am blogging from a hotel room tonight, and will attend a writer's conference tomorrow. This is a dream come true for me.
Lately my health has been worse. I was recently in a flare-up for a few weeks that was pretty scary. It felt so severe that I wasn't sure if it was just a flare, or if my disease had progressed and this was the "new normal." I was having nerve pain in my leg, my hip was flared and I was having great difficulty walking. I was running fevers most of the time and was a level of tired I can't describe. I scheduled an appointment with my doctor.
My husband bought me a cane. I began to worry that this was how I would get around now, by using a cane.
Thankfully, the flare has calmed down. My hip is back to bearable now. I can walk better again, and haven't been using the cane. But I am still unbearably exhausted.
I'll be seeing my doctor next week, but wanted to catch you up on why I haven't been blogging lately, let you know what you can pray for, and thank you, as ever, for walking alongside me on my journey.
I am extremely tired tonight and plan to turn in early so that I can enjoy my big day tomorrow.
What is your prayer these days? Is there something you'd like me to include in my prayers?
