God is Good and a bit about myself

Today has been a day where I wasn't sure I would make it through the day. I have been suffering from a series of migraines for over a month now and even spent 4 days in the hospital this past week. There have been times when I have wanted to give up and was all I could do but cry and keep going.

I am on medicines now that most people wouldn't be on. I am allowed none of the usual migraine medicines now when I get a migraine so they have me on some narcotics to try to combat them.

On top of it all, I have come off of sleeping pill that has left me feeling as though my world is falling apart. It was good as a sleeping aid, but was also an anti-depressant which we did not realize at the time. So, coming off of it was a terrible experience and has left me feeling like I am having a nervous breakdown. So, they have me on a medicine that helps me feel like I am not falling a part.

This is not particularly a good way to introduce myself to you all, but it has been so much to deal with I had to talk about it.

On the whole, I am holding my own right now though some days are better than others. Thankfully I have wonderful friends, church family and most importantly a very patient and kind husband.

Now, a bit about myself. I am 38 years old for at least a few more months. My husband and I have been married for almost 17 years. I have not yet finished college, but am in the process of seeking out a school to start out this fall and finish my degree. It has been a long time coming and I am excited to finally finish it.

I grew up in a christian home with my father at the Pastor of our church. Yes, I am a PK! It was good and bad but none the less has been the foundation of my life. I was saved at a young age, but as many do, wandered away from the Lord in my adult life. It has only been since the fall of 2006 that I have come back to the Lord and He has loving welcomed me back with open arms. God's grace is so good and so sufficient. We belong to a loving, Bible believing church close to the house here and we could not be more blessed by it.

So, that is a full blog for today, I suppose. I named this blog tye-dye trinity because I am a Christian hippie. I was much more of a hippie in my younger days, but now that God has reclaimed me for His own, it seems appropriate that I keep that in the title.

I hope that each of you will feel free to comment anytime you like. I welcome you into my world and ask your patience with me as I learn all about this blogging thing.

May God Bless each of you who read this. My verse for this week is:

Isaiah 53: 4-5 "Surely hehas borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed!" (revised standard version)

Good Night!
