When the pain gave way TO PROGRESS

The van was packed and ready for our trip. The cat-sitter had all the necessary instructions. A new message was in place on the phone answering service. When our two passengers arrived to join us for the two-day drive, we would be on our way. All was well ... except for me!

My friends, my husband, and I were scheduled to attend a Bible study seminar that was to be held on the California coast. I had been looking forward to this week of rest and relaxation for many days. One by one, I had checked the projects off my list—house painting, gardening, and assigning duties to others—as I raced to get it all done before we left. The added responsibility of caring for a member of my family who needed extra attention had seemed to stress me to the max.
