If you read yesterday's entry, you'll know that I was in pain for a couple of days, after using some rather light weights during my exercise workout.
This morning, I awoke early and found that the majority of my pain had subsided. Even so, I still was experiencing some pain, so I decided that I would not use the 2.5 lb. weights again, today.
Instead, I left home earlier than I normally do and drove to the nearest Canadian Tire store, once again. No, I didn't return the weights I had previously purchased. I decided to keep those for future use. Even so, I purchased the 1 lb. weights and used them today, during my workout.
This doesn't sound like much, but truthfully, between having Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), which is a Rheumatoid Arthritic condition, Fibromyalgia and knowing I still suffer from neck and shoulder pain from long term injury, from which I have to date never received full and complete healing for, it seems it may be the best I can do.
Tonight, my lower neck and shoulders are aching, but not nearly as bad as when I used the heavier weights. In addition, my lower back is not in pain, so I suppose using the lighter weights was a good idea. At least, until I can increase my strength.
By the time I reached my friend M's home, where I exercise, I had literally been drenched to the bone, three (3) times! It obviously wasn't God's will to answer my prayer in a positive way, concerning allowing the rain to let up, so that I wouldn't become soaked. lol
In addition to my regular work, I had a co-worker visit me this afternoon. She's a lovely woman I believe is in her late 70's and yes, is still selling real estate. However, she has some trouble from time to time, because her computer skills could use some improvement.
So, today P came a-calling. She brought with her two (2) cups of Tim Horton's French Vanilla Cappuccino coffee. Hmmm...my favourite. Even though I was grateful and enjoyed it to the very last drop, my conscience bothered me! After all, even though it is delicious, it must have about 50,000,000 calories in it! lol
After helping P obtain some forms she needed and showing her what she needed help with, we had a lovely conversation. However, we did have trouble accessing some info, which I believe may either have been due to work being done on the site we needed to access, or possibly even due to the storms that have been raging through our area.
Yes, again it rained. In fact, it is dark and rainy, with thunder and lightning even now! Oh well! I suppose we should consider ourselves fortunate and blessed, considering what our friends in USA have been experiencing. God does tell us in His Word, that we need to be thankful in all things!
Those tornadoes have caused so much loss of life and damage, that it surprises me when I hear people say they don't believe we are in the last days. To those who feel this way, I can only say...please read your Bible, prayerfully.
One thing is for sure, we need to be praying for those affected by all the storm damage. I'm not referring just to those whose homes were lost, for although this truly is a tragedy, they can be rebuilt, with effort. I'm referring to families who have lost loved ones, who died as a result of these storms.
Please find it in your heart to pray. Not only do I appreciate your prayer, but God will bless you for it.
Until next time...
