When God blesses you in a way that only he can a few things happen:
1) You stand in awe
2) You want to share His goodness!
I've spent the last few days in awe, so now my friends, I want to SHARE! This past week I had a minor surgery. Nothing big. However, my recovery was a little harsh. The only thing that I have to compare the pain to is childbirth without drugs. It hurt. Badly. Did I mention it hurt? On top of the pain there was the nausea. And vomiting.
For the first 4 hours I took the pain medication that was prescribed and curled up with a heating pad. Then, when it came time to take the next dose I started vomiting. I thought "ok, my body doesn't like Lortab. " "I'll take ibuprofen". Nope. That came up too. The medicine started to totally wear off at this point and I was raw and crying like a baby. I sent a text to a couple of friends asking for prayer. Minutes later my pain was gone. Totally. Completely. GONE. I had no pain meds in my system at all and went from a 9 on the pain scale to a 0. God is good. Sometimes we need to be reminded of His power. He is gracious to do that. I'm thankful!
