24 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 15

 Today I'm thankful for God's healing power. Sunday while we were bringing things upstairs ( 3 flights, remember?) I pulled something in my left side. It actually felt like when I had a rib out of place a few years ago. Lifting things while in an awkward position is never a good idea. Maybe one day I'll learn my lesson.
  It didn't really begin to bother me until I lay down to go to sleep. Then it became so painful to breathe I could barely draw a breath. It felt like something was squeezing and gripping my left side.
  It was so unexpected--I didn't even know I'd pulled anything--it scared me and Jacob. I didn't know what was going on. Rather frightening--our first night in a new town and I might need medical attention. I'm the type that hates having to go to the doctor and will usually wait til the very last minute.
  To make a long story short, Jacob began to pray for me and ask the Lord to take away the pain and repair any damage that may have been done. He asked that I be able to relax and have a good night's sleep. After about 5 minutes of prayer the pain suddenly stopped and let go and my breathing did not hurt and my whole body relaxed. I was asleep in a matter of minutes and had one of the most sound night's rest I've had in a while.
 Yesterday there were occasional twinges of pain, so I was careful with what I lifted. Today I didn't hurt at all! I was able to get my car nearly empty.
  Thank the Lord!
