I will praise You through the pain


Today I am home sick. No, not homesick as in longing for Baltimore (although I'd love some steamed crabs) but home...sick. This is an online card/bouquet that Larry sent me today from the office. He always tries to make me feel better. I woke up with a migraine...added to the earache I already woke up with yesterday morning. I know what some of you are thinking...this woman...if it's not her tooth it's her ear or whatever. You're right.

Honestly I am pretty much used to pain of some sort. I take a sick day at home but still work. Maybe that is part of my problem -- I nurse a migraine or whatever kind of ache by sending up a prayer, taking a "faith enhancer" as my friend Pastor Sandy calls it (faith enhancers are any kind of legal drugs/prescriptions), and get a heating pad on one side and my laptop on the other.

There is no good time to get sick I guess...and with Easter coming up and stuff, I don't have time to lay here and be sick. I have to rest and work in spurts. Besides that, I have to be at church tonight. Not only am I the only worship leader in the sanctuary but I also have a choir practice for Easter. Please don't take it that I "have" to be at church, versus "wanting" to be there. I love the house of God. Love it, love it, love it. I do wish I could have tonight off because my body does not feel well. Yet I know that when I begin to worship the Lord it always improves.

So I will go. I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1
