Crawling Out of Another Hole

March 20, 2013 at 7:38 am (Musings...)

Is it Spring yet???  The calendar says yes, but as I look out my window I see gray skies and snow.  If I stick my nose out the door, it will confirm that the temperature is below freezing.

It is hard to blog when all you have to blog about are struggles.  Although, I believe that an honest dialogue about my struggles with multiple sclerosis and trigeminal neuralgia could be helpful to others, I am fearful.  Afraid that people will roll their eyes and say, “There she goes again.”  Afraid that I will become like the boy who cried wolf.  Afraid that people will simply stop listening.  And so I neglect my blog.

My precious friend, Jenn (who is one of my personal prayer warriors), reminded me of this verse today. “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8.  Does that sound like a commandment to you??  It does to me.  “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”  Hmmmmm…  but I am afraid, afraid to leave the house (literally).  And I am discouraged, bogged down by ever-present pain and fatigue.

Well now, what to do??  Today, I am going to take off my pajamas,  put some warm clothes on and go outside.  I am going to the grocery store.  I am going to work through the tasks on my ever-present list.  I must work on a jewelry project.

I may, if I can control my pain, look through my summer fabrics and make plans to sew a summer dress.

See, I’ve blogged too!!  There you go!!  And as my Grammy always used to say, “It will be otay.”
