A few photo’s I snapped of my garden, yes my fountain has a really soothing sound but the big bonus is watching the birds bathe in the fountain and take a sip of cool water.
Usually I am writing about the animals specifically donkeys, horses and mules, pets, farm living and gardening but today I want to share a little deeper. Pain is a constant reminder to reach up to GOD in Jesus Christ name and believe he will hold our right hand as it is written in the bible, GOD will hold his children’s right hand.
Pain can shatter the strongest person and bring them to their knees begging GOD for mercy, help and healing as pain has no time limit it just keeps going on and on, day after day and hour after hour. Pain removes the smile from the human who suffers from pain day after day and if not attacked with a purpose to enjoy life in the midst of pain, pain will win by destroying our soul.
“Without Jesus Christ pain will destroy the human as pain attacks the core of our soul our dreams, goals and every day life experiences become more difficult.” Pain slowly sucks the joy and life completely out of the person kinda like a tree that needs a big drink of water after a few days of 90 degree weather. The good news is GOD can restore everything stolen and GOD can make his children soar like an eagle, never fainting and GOD can combat pain and suffering as he is the great I AM. The beginning and the end of everything in this precious world we live in.
Pain is like the wind you can feel it but you cannot see it. Frustrating as can be as no modern technology can show on a computer screen the amount of pain a person is withstanding thus doctors rely on what number is your pain today and a body diagram showing where you have pain. I have been suffering with chronic pain since April 13, 2010 after surviving a semi truck smashing into the passenger door of my GOD mothers little tiny 1980 truck after she ran a stop sign.
Select What is a Physiatrist to read more about pain doctors. The physiatrist often coordinates a team of other doctors and health professionals in developing and carrying out a comprehensive rehabilitation plan; s/he may specialize in the care of patients with spinal cord injuries (SCI). The coordinated treatment plan extends beyond hospital walls into the patient’s family, community, occupation, friends, and ultimate life style.

What Can I Do To Help My Body, Friend, or Loved One Suffering with Pain?
1. Most importantly understand that pain is the body saying “something is wrong”
2. It is important to find a pain specialist, I was given the name of a physiatrist after suffering with insane amounts of pain for over one year. The doctors just did not know what to do to help me survive chronic pain. My physiatrist is indeed a human angel as she has helped me the most with pain.
3. Be a great friend, family member and have mercy for the person suffering from pain little things mean a lot to a pain suffer. Stopping by and visiting, little gifts of your time mean the world to people suffering from physical and emotional pain as they remember what it was like to be busy.
4. People who are suffering with the worst of pain (emotional or physical) usually live their life in isolation it is indeed a special place as GOD is always number one on my mind, I can’t live without Jesus Christ helping me navigate life it is just too hard. Sharing a few prayers or words of encouragement is always a drink of fresh water for people suffering.
I love you, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer: my GOD is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold,
I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
