Prayer Request

If there are still a few of you checking this, I have a prayer request for you:

About mid-morning this morning, I started developing back pain. This is not unusual, and there are any number of things that could have caused it. It's actually really normal for me to be sore at any given point in time (I'll never regret dancing, but sometimes it catches up with me). By lunch time, however, the pain had grown so severe that by now I am having trouble walking, sitting for long periods of time, bending over, lifting anything at all... pretty much doing anything that isn't lying down still with my feet propped up.

I'm sure you can imagine the problems this causes - I'm moving in a week, I don't have time to lie with my feet up. I also need to continue making steady progress packing, and not being able to bend or lift or even stand for long periods of time tends to make packing difficult. Even more immediately, I'm traveling to Tennessee tomorrow for the weekend, so I will spend a good chunk of the next four days on a plane or bus, in airports, carrying luggage, and walking long distances.

So, please pray for quick and total healing.

Also, if anything, this is a reminder to myself to be attentive to what my body is telling me and careful with what I can and cannot do. I am reminded that I definitely cannot do much carrying and truck loading. So, I will put out the call again: if anyone is available to help load my Uhaul truck next Thursday, August 7th at 5:00 pm, I (and my back!) would greatly appreciate your help!

Thank you so much!
