I went to see my doctor again, to check in after my concussion. Great news! My eyes are tracking correctly now, and my retinas are working like they should. That is so encouraging, because it means my brain is working properly. I just cannot tell you what an answer to prayer that is!
On the downside, my pain levels are still really high, bringing nausea at night and difficulty sleeping. However, he said that’s an entirely different issue that should resolve within 4 weeks. That sounds like a REALLY long time, LOL! But he increased my magnesium, turmeric, yarrow, and vitamin C, showed me how to relax and breathe through the pain (which I told him reminded me of childbirth), and reminded me to stay hydrated (which I admit, I can forget to drink enough some days). He also increased my protein intake for a little while. I really like this doctor!
He said that I need to keep stimulation (noises, smells, lights, too much thinking — ha!) as low as I can for another couple weeks, because the brain actually swells when it is stimulated. That is SO hard for me! At the moment, I’m trying to just do work in short bursts.
How is Word Power coming? I’ve had good days and bad days. I was overwhelmed last week with the prayer support of all of you, and I really DO feel that getting these books done is what my Creator, Savior, and King has called me to do, for this season in history, to be a tool to prepare our kids for “the work of the ministry” in His Kingdom.
Will you join me in praying that the inflammation goes down — and miraculously fast?
I’ll update you again next week, but for the moment, we are still aiming for our goal. We will plan to have digital (PDF ebook) Word Power lessons ready for you to download on Sunday, September 20. These will be for grades K-8, so that you can use them this school year. These will be available at no charge to you, and together, we’ll continue to educate these children of ours for His Kingdom and glory.
- How to Access Word Power this fall:
- I will post these links on the Word Power page here (after Sept 20).
- HomeschoolingTorah members will be able to access them here (after Sept 20).
- Click here if you need ideas for things to do with your students until September 20.
Abba willing, we will be back with Word Power lessons for you very shortly! Thank you all for your KIND and gracious notes, emails, prayers, and encouraging words. We love you all!
Verses I’m Meditating On
(and Maybe You Need to Hear Them, Too):
“Be strong and of good courage, and do it;
do not fear nor be dismayed,
for YHVH Elohim—my Elohim—will be with you.
He will not leave you nor forsake you,
until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of YHVH” (1 Chronicles 28:20).
“And let the beauty of YHVH our Elohim be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands” (Psalm 90:17).
“But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak,
for your work shall be rewarded!” (2 Chronicles 15:7).
“All your children shall be taught by YHVH,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake” (Isaiah 54:13-15).
