NO LONGER LOST

Embedded image from another site

Lost and trying to find my way
In a daze not knowing what day
Nothing making sense anymore
Desperately seeking the right door

But every place I turn is the wrong way
Not trusting and not easily persuade
Not knowing what evil awaits ahead
Must use my heart instead of my head

Hunger and thirst a constant companion
Life stretching out before me like a deep canyon
Then suddenly I knew and picked the right door
For behind I knew I would find my Lord

Not lost - my thirst quenched and hunger fed
No longer lost but using my heart - not my head

The Lord will guide you my friend, let the Holy Spirit lift you up. Life choices are hard to do sometimes. Life is also about risks too. finding the right partner is no game. Hope your decision is a blessed one.teddybear

Thank you Happy. The decision was a health one - I had to have and did have last Wed. a total knee replacement. Now the recuperation period is very difficult but with God's help and of my blood family, church family and friends I pray I will persevere through this period in my life.

Wishing you all the best on your road to recovery ..great months of lovely weather ahead for you to go on your much loved walks when your ready wave teddybear

Thank you Happy. 3 weeks tomorrow and I can walk with a cane and sometimes forget to walk with a cane. Physical Therapy is coming along good - however, do get frustrated sometimes but must persevere as I know I'm fortunate in family, church family, friends and neighbors who have been loving on me and helping me. You see - I have always been pretty independent and it is humbling to be served instead of serving.

Seems your decision was a healthy one. Glad you are doing well with your treatment and will recover in no time. God bless. SMwave

Thank you South Miami. The Physical Therapy right now is quite grueling but I'm sticking too it as the knee is stiff and need to get it limbered up and it is quite painful doing the exercises at time. But will persevere - very important to do so.

Thanks Kathy, New Zealand. I struggled with my fear up until the Doctor had me put to sleep for the surgery. Now struggling with the pain and PT but am determined will make.

Thank you Exred Redex. Trying to find my way in this life - harder without a partner but not impossible.

Thank you yaspark, Lily and Mady for your encouragement - somehow I got behind on thanks yous.

Update: I'm through therapy - go to the gym 3 or 4 times a week to ride the stationary bike and do my exercises daily at home as well. I'm coming along but it is I understand a 6 month - 1 year recovery period for knee replacements. I also try to walk 1/2 mile a day when I can. It puts an awful strain on the good knee as well. But I'm coming along.

Thanks Laura - it has been a difficult journey the last few months but hopefully I'm on the right track now. One more hurdle of have to get through this next week.

It has been a very challenging year healthwise - first knee replacement and then other health problems developed afterwards. The knee is doing well but having problems with immune system which we are working on. But God has been good and family and friends have been very supportive. Thanks everyone for your support here.

Might I suggest the following edit?
Instead of "Then suddenly I knew and picked the right door
perhaps
Then suddenly I knew and picked a door
This keeps the cadence while still purveying the message

Every move seems to lead to the right doors
But now its not so easy to find among many doors
Yes the situation is so dire now
Take care in these dark times sister teddybear

Thank you Morgen. Fortunately I'm in upstate New York. New York City is the one hard hit - they have been sending refrigerator trucks there to put the deceased in. The families have 14 days to claim the bodies and then if not claimed - they are burying them in a mass grave on one of the islands off the coast. - So so sad and scary!! Surreal - feel like I'm in a very bad Science Fiction horror movie.

You stay safe too Morgen.
