I do not know what tomorrow will bring but I thank God for today.
I developed trigeminal neuralgia on August 9, 2013. Every single day since then has been filled with pain. Some days have been "better" days but the pain has always been present.
Today was different. Today a small and very welcome visitor came to spend the day with me... aged 23 months. Oh how I wanted to feel good today! I wanted to have a day free from pain, a day when we could simply enjoy one another's company and that is exactly what happened.
We played together, ate lunch together, walked to the park, sang together, made music and danced together, had supper together and simply enjoyed life together. It was a good day and for me it was also a pain-free day. The very first pain-free day I have had in more than two months. I am blessed.
For the rest of my life I will have good days and not so good days. I will have days when everything runs smoothly and easily but I will also have days that will have "bumps and bruises". There will be peaceful days and there will be days with conflict yet despite everything, regardless of what life throws at us, when we do life with God... we are blessed.
Thank you, Lord. Thank you for today.
Praise the Lord for this pain-free day that you've had. I'm so grateful to God that He has given you this marvelous blessing, so that you could enjoy yourself with such a precious visitor.
