tilt - a - whirl

At the end of last week I had two dizzy spells, one when I stood up too fast and one when I turned around too fast.  Then over the weekend I started feeling like I had just spent the last hour on a merry-go-round, you know that constant feeling of spinning and your eyes are looking around trying to find something to focus on, but they just cannot?  Ugh.  I finally went to the doctor and found out I have vertigo, more than likely from a viral infection that attacked one of my inner ears.  It is better today, my doctor said it would take six weeks to go away completely, but that our bodies are really smart and will compensate and so I won't always feel that way.  I doubted his word...but I guess he was right and  I am OH SO glad he was.

This year has been rough.  I have heard quite a few people say that, that this year has pulled, pushed, and challenged them like few before it.  When I typed that a verse popped in my mind...I wanted to share it in case anyone else needs to encouragement this morning : (2 Corinthians 4:7-9)

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; …

May we hold fast to Him and dig into His Word.

  1. I have been wanting to write an e-mail but my own health issues combined with sharing a computer now has hindered.

    But this time I wanted to stop and say I DO feel your pain (or dizziness). That's interesting that it can take six weeks to get completely over vertigo since I had it about a month ago and once in awhile I still feel dizzy.

    Nothing like full blown vertigo when (as you know) you can't even stand up quickly. Praying you get well soon.

    Had years when December came and I'd sigh with relief that the year was over and we all survived, hoping the next one would be better!
