'for the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart'
Best wishes, Kate: we look forward to your return. Don't be disheartened.
Thanks Joshua.I'm not disheartened as such, but struggling with chronic pain over the last several weeks that I thought was improving but may need a few more weeks (mind you, if it doesn't improve I'll need further minor surgery, which could start the whole round again..).But compounded by a series of things going wrong (including managing to lose my purse with all my cards and destroy my admittedly antique tv in the last twenty four hours or so), and sermon yesterday that I decided I needed some time to contemplate rather than simply rejecting as was my first reaction.
We'll be here when you get back! - and cliche though it may be, always remember that "This too shall Pass....."or, failing that, Rise Above It - Altius Orire. Chronic pain will always colour your view of the world and wear you down, so you must attend to it and then take Time to heal in body and spirit.
We hope that you will be back soon. Do you have any intentions to be offered up at the Divine Liturgy? :) Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep well always. God bless! :)Sincerely,Subdeacon Collin
Thanks for all your prayers and kind words - already efficacious as I have had my purse and cards returned to me, nothing missing!
Kate, are you attending a pain management clinic? Your GP could refer you I think. You will be in my prayers.
Thanks Victoria but it is not that serious and in theory I should be starting to improve - it's just that I'm allergic to and/or have severe adverse reactions to codeine, NSAIDS and a range of other medications.
All the best for your restoration to health.
God bless Kate. I'm praying for you.
Thanks. A little suffering is good for the soul(s) however, and its spiritual health that matters.
Belatedly, my best wishes also.
