You might want to sit down and take a deep breath. Yes, it's me. I am actually posting something on my blog. I have pictures to down load but am not sure how to do it with my new camera. Abby will help me later.

We have had a very busy summer. I will have to post about that later. For today I am posting about my miracle.

The past two days my back has been out and it has been very painful. I have not been able to do anything to speak of. Sitting hurt, standing was a little better if I stood in just the right way. Laying down hurt but not as much as sitting. I went to the chiropractor and got a massage, but neither of these things helped much. I have been in agony.

Today I was supposed to go to the temple with Kaci Harris (Jared's fiance'). She was going for the first time. I was not sure how I was going to make it through the session. I didn't know how I would be able to do the sitting and standing and dressing etc. Abby said I should stay home, but I told her I really needed to be there and it would be all right; the Lord would bless me. I knew I couldn't do much so I had her put my white knee highs on for me so I didn't have to bend down to do them myself at the temple. My back just wasn't going that far.

I managed to get dressed at the temple and into the chapel. I was really hoping I could actually get up all those stairs to the creation room and I did. I was in pain when we had to do the first standing up out of our chairs, but I made it. After that, my pain went away totally. I did all the standing and sitting and everything. I got dressed afterward and we went to the cafeteria for lunch. I am still pain free. I can feel a little twinge now and then but I am good to go! I am thankful for the Lord's tender mercies. He knew this was an important day and that I needed to be there. I am truly blessed.

I'm so sorry you have been in pain. It must have been frustrating to not know how to fix it. But what a blessing! I love personal validations of our faith! Thank you for sharing that, reminding me to return there more often!

WOW! I am so sorry you've been in such pain. I had no idea!! I am glad that this miracle happened to allow you to make it through this special day and to hopefully be pain free--

And you're right, I almost DID an audible gasp when I saw you posted. :)
