So sorry to hear John, I also have chronic back pain with herniated disc. Will lift you up to the Lord for healing & his peace. God bless brother!!
Some of you know that I have had a health setback. About 13 weeks ago I hurt my back by lifting at a stupid angle. 2 flare-ups since then, the last one a bad one. I have been mostly bedfast for 10 days so far with much left leg nerve pain and weakness. ER visit, Dr visit, neurologist visit, x-rays, CT scan, and MRI.
Diagnosed yesterday with Tarlov's Cysts low on the front, bottom of my tail bone – flared up and causing nerve pain. Will start a nerve pain pill today. Prognosis fair at best. Cysts in bad spots for steroid injection or for surgery via the front below the underwear line. Will wait it out a while. Pain is fairly well controlled at rest, but bad if I walk or sit much over a minute. Linda is taking great care of me. BONUS???? I have lost 20 pounds since the new year including 11 in the last 2 weeks. It is good that I had some weight to spare.
Still able to enjoy some things and feel thankful. Good books, music with mp3 player, a few TV shows, visits from friend Ted, Bible, harmonica and cigar box guitar at my side.
Will welcome prayers and good wishes. I do not need anything else. I can not at this time respond to emails, etc. God bless!
Seems like a lot of ppl very anxious about national and international stiuation these days.
"Stay calm, trust God and play on!"
Blesdings, Wichita Sam
I hear what you're saying Alan...about feeling closer to God when you're doing something you're passionate about. I feel that way when I'm up in the mountains, in the ocean, or in the vastness of the desert. When I'm somewhere where there are no manmade things in my view, it's like God is right there sitting next to me. I sure don't get that feeling when I'm sitting in a big huge church. I'm so glad we don't need cell phone towers to talk to God, or for him to talk to us. :) I suspect if I had a shop, I'd feel the same way. :)
So a couple of weeks ago, a guy in our church was explaining our core mission statement (or whatever you call it). He mentioned 'worshipping God passionately'. He brought up the movie "Chariots of Fire" and Eric Liddell felt God's pleasure when he ran.My running days are long since passed but I do feel God's pleasure when I am turning a pile of scraps and junk into a musical instrument. I seem to be closer to Him in my shop than in my church! (Maybe more intimate is the proper phrase.)It's really cool to hang out with Him and create! At times, as I work, I think of Joseph and Jesus working with wood. I have modern tools but creating with wood has not changed that much over time.My advice: Keep chasing your passion! To God be ALL the glory!
I like that, Alan. Thanks!
That verse is pretty special to me. It has gotten me through some though times of low self-esteem. Pretty much, it's like, "You can say what you want. You can call me what ever. But I know I am 'Holy to the Lord'!"The placement of this on the guitar is for me as I perform to remind me who I am in Christ! Pretty cool stuff.Thanks for letting me babble. ;)
That's branding I can get behind!
Very nice, Alan. I love it.
