To be perfectly honest not running has been hard, but not as hard as I thought it would be. There have been positives like
sleeping in until 6:20 each morning
no achy muscles (I think all the steroids are helping with this!)
enjoying a more relaxing morning before Emma and Jonah leave for schoolmore time for cross training
more energy for house projects (like painting the front entryway this week)
But, as with anything there have been drawbacks as well like
having to eat less and that has been really hard!

Obviously I love running and I miss it dearly. It really is a part of my daily schedule. My friends know that I love running and you all have been wonderfully sweet to me this week. I have received texts, Facebook messages, and phone calls from friends just saying they are thinking good thoughts for me. I appreciate all of it so very much and it really is very comforting!
God is good and I know this is all just part of His plan. I have said many times that one of my favorite, favorite verses is Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight!
Those are such powerful words packed with great advice for living a full life. I know God will take care of me and carry me through this. He already has and I am ready for whatever the answer is tomorrow. I have a plan to move forward whatever the MRI results and I am good with that.
This morning the DJ on KSBJ said she cannot imagine life for someone who cannot take their worries to God. Well, me neither! I am so glad I don't have to worry about that. I am choosing to trust Him no matter how much I may not like it.
