Gosh, it's been awhile since my last post. Many, many months actually!
These pics are from last fall.......
Sharing a few since fall is in the air again and today is the 1st day of Autumn.
It's been a busy few months for me.
To be honest......some of the most difficult moments I have had to go thru!!
Late last spring, I began to struggle with pain like I've never had before. And pain of various levels is a daily 'norm' for me.
This, however, was an entirely different level. After Dr appts, tests, etc........Dx of a couple herniated discs.
After a few trials and error of pain and med combos, epidural.......finally found a combo that worked fairly well and keep some semblance of my mind! I had some weird reactions to various meds and that was a trial in and off itself!
Several months of Physical Therapy and I'm at long last on the healing side of this trial. It's been long, rough, and overwhelming!
I can't say that everyday was one I considered a 'blessing under fire'. Can't even say that I stayed strong in His strength thru it all??!! Or that I didn't feel days of frustration, and at times anger a bit. Where was God? With so many praying for me.....why did some days gets actually worse and unbearable in the midst of those prayers?
I cannot say that I have the answers, or that I ever will completely.
To the best of my foggy mind thru it all (ugh meds), I can say that I tried my best to hold on, to try and trust. Keep the faith under the fiery trial!
He had taught me thru it all, so much that I thought I already understood, so much I thought I had already experienced. As I continue the healing process with less meds (better focus now)........I hope to prayerfully digest these last several months.
Learn from it all.
And more importantly......going forward , how can I use all I have gone thru to help others. Use my life experiences to glorify Him?
Life is a journey of seasons! May we all learn from one another's seasonal experiences in our lives!
