It’s been over two weeks since I last posted because life has been busy!  I’m still trying to get used to this new medication I’ve been taking.  It makes me sleepy, my mouth gets so dry, and if I get up too fast from sitting, I feel lightheaded.  But, it has been helping the burning pain in my arm which is a praise. 🙂  So I guess taking the med is a win-lose situation. 😉  I’m still going strong with therapy, and for the past month or so, it’s been extra tough—1. because it’s painful  2. because I realize just how weak I am strength-wise  3. because my hand therapist and I aren’t seeing a whole lot of good progress yet and it’s been over 3 months now since the CRPS spread to my hand.  It’s been a little discouraging sometimes to see up-front how difficult it is to treat this condition.  I don’t like using my left hand because it reminds me how much it hurts.  But, as I’ve been learning, God gives grace for each day.  He holds me up!  Anyway, I just wanted to share with you something that happened on Valentine’s Day that reminded me of God’s faithfulness. 🙂

I had occupational hand therapy and physical therapy on Valentine’s Day.  And it wasn’t the most easy.  So when I got home, I had a nice surprise that lifted my spirits! 🙂  A bouquet of pink, white, and red carnations were there—for me. =)  I was one lucky blessed gal!  And no, the flowers (which, by the way, are one of my favorites) weren’t from my therapists. 😉  They were from my pastor and his wife. 🙂  Aren’t they the sweetest?  God spoke to me through them that He loves me unconditionally and He is faithful and good.  Not was faithful.  He IS faithful.  And I was reminded once again that I don’t need to be afraid about the future or worry at all about progress or issues with strength and pain because…God is faithful.  He is all I need.

“If we are faithless, He remains faithful—for He cannot deny Himself.”
2 Timothy 2:13
“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations…”
Deuteronomy 7:9
