The Problem of Pain

We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. 
God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, 
but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world. 
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

In praying for relief of pain, the Lord will certainly help but expects one 
to take some of the responsibility.  
He did not provide sudden/magic relief,  
but He cleared the paths I reckoned upon. 

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: 
thy mercy, O Lord, endureth forever:  
forsake not the works of thine own hands

wanna be my neighbor?

There is a great land deal nearby.  Great that is if you have $15,263,300.  Agua Fria Ranch is for sale and has been for a couple of years now.  Heck...I bet you could talk them down to $14 million.  83,87,68,0,B

hell or high water...

 Another light pain day...but got hammered with almost an inch of rain this morning.  Forecast is hopeful for an easy out to the dentist by Monday.  Worst case scenario - I hike out Monday AM to meet a friend at the highway who will give me a loaner vehicle for the trip.  Sure would be nice if I had that fly out option available... 81,84,63, .86",B

Maxillary Sinuses

I'm beginning to think I may just live through the weekend and make it to Monday for my extraction.  Woke up this morning with lighter than usual pain.  Took a pain pill for breakfast and went for my morning walk.  Had a cup of coffee and my antibiotic pill then laid back down for a spell.  Caution - this is gross: Suddenly I felt a pop in my sinus along with a god awful smell of death.  Got up an blew my nose really hard then hawked up some loogies from hell.  Suddenly all the pressure was gone there.  My maxillary sinuses are exceptionally large and that is the "root of the problem".  The dentist assured me to expect the once daily azithromycin to take at least 72 hours to kick in - and apparently that was right on the money.  Made it through the day without another pain med.  I might actually get a good night's sleep tonight...but it is still gonna be a very long weekend.  83,85,68,0,B
