Moving can be a hazardous business. Especially when you have a bad back. Especially when a bulging disc is acting up again.
Anyway, we're having the offices re-carpeted at church this week. This is the last 1% that needs to be completed. Then our building project is officially done.
While this is a necessary task, I've been dreading it. This pretty well disrupts our usual routine. Projects that I hoped to complete this week aren't going to happen. At this point we're hoping we can cover the basics - like have worship services completed for Saturday and Sunday.
Yesterday, we were putting the final touches on moving the offices so our carpet guys could get started. I didn't feel like I'd done that much. But while eating lunch I felt a pain that drove me to my knees. I did lots of ice in the afternoon and my dear sweet wife applied lots of icy-hot in the evening. It was hard to sleep. More ice and icy hot this morning seems to be loosening my back a bit and at least I can stand up now without more pain in my back and radiating down my right leg.
All of this reminds me again of just how much I need the Lord's mercy and help every day. God is faithful. He hears our prayers. Thanks be to God for a little relief!
