finding my way

She sits lonely, this blog...
while her author slowly, oh so slowly, finds her way back to her words. 

There is so much between the words and me... a thousand distractions turning up and untying the strings of words I somehow have brought together, all at once leaving them in a pile on the floor.  They are not lonely though... so many other things are keeping them company down there, scattered throughout the house.  If only I had the energy to do it all.  And in that I find the blessing of thankfulness... the gift of a husband who does so much to contribute to the workings of our home, even if can't right now. 

He is healing... slowly.  Is there any other way? 
Rest, rest, rest... over-do.  And the then cycle begins again.  We are thankful for that too... that any healing comes his way.  Very thankful that three broken vertebrae will heal.  So we continue this balancing act with a smile... managing the pain, forcing the resting, picking up the slack, making due with the situation of right now.   My heart and soul are weary, but even in this I see His plan and embrace it.  Prayers are answered and I am taken by surprise at how much He provides.  He has a great plan, one greater that we can even fathom.  I praise Him in this storm... and follow Him as he leads me on my way.

I've been thinking of you a great deal lately. Then last night the Lord put you on my heart so strongly and I prayed for you. What a bright spot for me to see you've posted this morning. Continuing in my prayers for you all.

Hang in there, Dawn...I remember those days from my husband's knee surgery, two years ago at this time. So glad he is on the mend. My blog sits lonely, too...I have been back for a couple months now from a long hiatus, and it seems that everyone has disappeared--traffic and comments around the blogosphere in general seems to have slowed to a trickle.
Hope you feel renewed and inspired soon :)

Dawn, may you and your husband find the refreshing that you need, and healing. These things take time.

Ah, sweet Dawn...you take as much time as you need to be with your healing man! :) I'm just so thankful he IS healing! I feel like a slacker of a friend for not checking on you before now. Please forgive?
