I identified with this story after having a painful bout with shingles recently. My right leg was affected and limited my physical activity. Like the author, the pain had me sobbing and calling out to Jesus. Good writing. God bless.
As someone who has suffered from severe pain for 30 years now, I can totally relate to your words. I'd keep myself awake because when I dozed off, I couldn't control my screams and it would wake my kids. Many times I've thanked God for the infinite blessings this pain has given me. I was hurting a lot today and reading your piece reminded me to count my new blessings. I haven't done that in awhile. It never ceases to amaze me how God uses FW to speak to me. I thank you for sharing your story and reminding me to still count each new blessing, including you.
Love your title! And, I loved your honest and soulful entry. I understand and know full well so many others will after reading this entry, which is right on topic and filled with a powerfully inspirational message.

God is always there to help us through it all! AMEN!

Thank you for sharing your heart with us.

Such an enjoyable read for something as not enjoyable as pain. But you knew how to handle it and added in humor. Thank you for sharing this well written piece.
Just the right amount of humor for a very painful story. My heart aches for anyone who has chronic pain. I can only imagine the difficulties in focusing on anything other than the pain.

Our earthly life in training for heaven has its ups and downs.
This is so well-written! Engaging, instructive, encouraging. Definitely a winner.
Your writing really drew me in and I could picture it well. Well done!
Congratulations on your 3rd place finish, Linda.

Sometimes it is hard to see blessings when we are in pain.
I'm really late on my comments, but trying to get caught up. What an amazing testimony! I like your humorous use of cliches. Clever! Congrats on getting 3rd place!
