I'm Flying With No Wings

Please scroll down for my Wordless Wednesday entry!

I'm still struggling with my health right now...and had missed work since the start of the week. I have not had asthma for years now, well, at least not this kind! They say nature has a special way of reminding us our limits and I guess, I have been ignoring my body and it's payback time...

I have been pushing myself to the edge the past weeks...I've been skipping vitamins...stopped some medications...and missed sleep. And now I'm sick!

What seems to be an ordinary allergic rhinitis...turned into asthma...and body malaise. Though these are not new to me, but to have them all at once...is something!

My doctors are beginning to worry...their main concern is, we do not want to go back to that medication routine we did years back. Yes, I do not want to go back to it. That phase is supposed to be over...and I made it! That is what I want to believe...

I went to bed last night with so many thoughts in my head...and if I am to write them down, it will a list of things, with myself on the bottom. It was then I realized that what's stressing are the many thoughts that get to my head not allowing me to rest at all!

I am so overly worried...concerned...hopeful...excited...glad...happy...pissed...sad...hurt...for a lot of things... all at once! Mariposa live in extremes....! I'm not loving it...yet, I don't hate it, I'm just trying to live with it...and not feel it intervene with my life! That affects my life...but that does not define my life...and how I live. Remember my 3Bs?!

To get here is not easy though, but God carried me through it! He allowed to fly even in times when I have broken my wings...in times when I have no wings at all! He blessed me with a wonderful family...and friends...in life and in here!

So, for Word Filled Wednesday, I'd like to share with you following verse, with the hope that you whoever needs it, gets the strength to trust and deliver all to Him..and may this verse inspires us all as we live life one day at a time.

Prayers ascending for you...I have had problems with asthma for about a year and a half and it can be overwhelming at times especially when other things are going on (healthwise and life wise!)

I do love that verse...and what a photo to go with it :o)

Blessings.

Mariposa said...

Saiyo - thanks for all the well wishes!

Jan - thanks so much! I'm so glad you are back! We miss you...

Joy - thanks...it's very true, any illness can be overwhelming especially if we get them at the wrong time...i took that photo years back when i had my vacation in New Port RI.

Alihsee - Amen!

Mariposa,

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Sometimes allergies/asthma and things like that change in seasons and when we burn the candle at both ends they have a way of biting us in the bottom.

So, take some time and rest and we'll pray that God will take care of these health issues quickly and you'll be up to full speed again.

Blessings!
Cheryl
