Thankfulness...Even Through Agony....

God is in control !!!

But, Lord why ??? Pain !!! Oh the agony of this pain !!! Everything happens for a reason or a purpose ... What is the purpose of this ???

I cried all week from the pain, until I could no longer handle it. I would rather give birth than having a toothache. At least you benifit from the blessing of a child. Can I benifit from the agony of a toothache ???

Well. I can tell you this much.. I have certainly learned that I am not in control and I just have to trust that the Lord has a purpose for this and I shant ask questions. I can except that. Being, that this was Thanksgiving week.. I have reflected upon my blessings.. all, which I am undeserving of.. but, given to me by the grace of God.

So, even through the pain and the tears and the crying out to the Lord, he blessed me yet. I was finally able to see a Dentist that did a root canal, so that I could have a peaceful Thanksgiving day with my family and friends. And that I did. I am sooo thankful that there are Dentists !!!! unlike, So many years ago.. people had to suffer under no anesthetic.

Or, even the strangest concoctions.. that really didn't help them at all.

Who am I to complain anyway ?? I am truly thankful.


  1. Oh, I know your pain so well! I'm glad you were able to get through it. :)

  2. I am so, so sorry!! You have been in pain, I hope you are feeling better! Love you!!
