If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) recent entries, you'll know that I am at home now, recovering from emergency surgery for an incarcerated hernia.
Please know that I realize I have much to be thankful for.
But, if the truth be known, I think I'm just having a bad day. A day where I feel lost, emotionally-troubled and rather sad.
I'm sure that the pain I've been experiencing hasn't helped any.
It's painful to sit up. To sit down. To get in and out of bed. To recline too long. To walk to much. To laugh. To cry. To cough. To sneeze. And, much more.
This coming Tuesday, my stitches will be removed. Still, this doesn't mean that I am healed.
Anyone who knows what having abdominal surgery is like, knows that it will take a very long time, for healing to be completed. For a very long time, I won't be able to lift much of anything. And, I'm nervous even about stretching to access my vehicle.
Well, that will probably happen first, because I will have to drive myself to the hospital on Tuesday. I just pray I won't cause any damage to not just my incision, but any area that is in the process of healing, at this time.
Never do I want to ever have to go through again, what I've recently been through.
Of course, all this pain and suffering of late, is truly nothing compared to the pain and suffering I've felt for years. Both physical and emotional.
You see, today is the anniversary of the day when the truck hit the school bus I had been driving, years ago.
Today, is the anniversary of the day when I believe I died, and was changed into another person. Albeit, not physically, of course, for I am the same person, DNA-wise.
Just different than I ever had been, prior to this life-changing experience.
Of course, I am not alone. Jesus, my Lord, is with me.
And, God tells us in Psalm 34:19, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all."
For this, I am truly grateful. For He does deliver us from all our affliction. He has always delivered me from mine. And, I fully expect that it is His will to deliver me from this latest of afflictions.
Thank you, Lord.
If you do not yet know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, I pray that it will be God's will to save you.
To save you, isn't difficult for Him. All you need to do is trust in/believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).
Until next time...
