Today's blog title is shamelessly lifted from Stephanie Humphreys' Write Bravely blog. She does a very good job with it; go and read it.
I appreciated the thought of praying for a stronger back instead of a lighter burden. I'm going to continue to pray for a resolution to our trials, though, because I think we're about due a reduction in this burden - it's been promised repeatedly in blessing after blessing.
But I also need to ask for a stronger back. Somehow, I have to have faith that the Lord can give me the strength to endure. My muscles are quivering, and feel like they're ready to give out. I suppose it's a miracle that they haven't already.
I had expected to be well on our way to recovery by now, yet lately it seems we're right back where we were last year, minus a huge chunk of resources. I keep thinking that the solution is just around the next curve or over the next hill. I've thought that for the last thirty hills and curves.
Today a nice man came and took samples of the air in our house. For the modest sum of one week's salary (gross) he will take his samples to the lab and tell us if there are any detectable chemicals or molds that are keeping Kara from healing as she should.
In the meantime, it's Friday. That means pizza and ice cream. At least, that's what it means today.
We like to get half Hawaiian, half cheese. I call it the "hapa".
