who knew pain could be so draining?  it's seriously exhausting.  I hurt my back this week and it has been excruciating.  It takes all my energy and focus ... trying to hold still when i find a position that is not uncomfortable (notice i did not say comfortable).  I cannot concentrate, cannot move, cannot rest.  It's hard to focus on anything - the sermon on Sunday, the task I need to do at work, what items I should be accomplishing on my "to-do" list.

I don't even know how this happened.  But it has given me a new perspective and a new empathy.  And I have realized again how often I fail to be thankful.  I take life and health for granted.  So I am asking God to continue to open my mind to things that He would teach me.
