it's a beautiful day ... somewhere~

It's a gorgeous sky this morning...
Showing signs of a beautiful day.

I sure hope mine gets better.  I've been out of bed since 4:00 a.m.   I went to bed around 9:00 last night and had just a horrible night of tossing and turning.  I'm in so much pain!  All night long I've was poppin' Ibupropen like they were Tic Tacs ... and I can't even tell that I took one... let alone a whole freakin' handful.
Now I have a stomach ache.
Can you OD on Pepto?

Okay ...

Time to quit my procrastinating and rely on my faith.

Psalms 118:24
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have said that verse ... and how many times it has given me comfort.  Why didn't I turn to the Lord about this sooner? 


Have a great day all my cyberspacers!

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. Deep breaths and read the verse again and try to take it easy. Look out the window and enjoy your lovely scenery. When my back is hurting, I also always try and think and be thankful for what I do have and say, "it could be worse, there has to be someone out there in worse shape than me."

  2. Sorry Mel. Having pain is a pain! Sure hope you got a nap in and are feeling better. Good luck babe.

  3. So sorry about your pain. Thanks for visiting and commening in my blog today. In answer to your question. I don't know what the turtles do in winter here. This is my first time to pay attention to them but I will be watching them closely.

  4. What? Ya sending out pain waves? I had the worse backache today but perhaps from overdoing it...o.k...from overdoing it...
    That verse, the one that Mom and Dad repeated would start it and end anywhere and the other would finish gives me comfort too.And turning the pain of the day over to the Lord works for me...sometimes we just need a lot of extra help...easy on the meds sister, you can OD on anything in excess... Hope you have a better tomarrow...

  5. just read your last post Mel, no wonder you didn't sleep and are in so much pain....maybe too much trudging in the woods cutting boughs????
