Prayer Request

Well, I've been anxiously waiting for Wednesday to post. I didn't expect to be posting at 12:51 A.M.!

Mark and Nick have been on their mission trip to Guatemala all week. I didn't post anything because I didn't want to let the whole world know that I was home alone.
Anyway, they come home tonight! I am so excited to see them, I can't stand it!

Here's where my prayer request comes in. Yesterday I was working really hard around the house to get everything nice for them to come home to. I was working in the yard. I filled a 5 gallon bucket full of water and carried it around the yard to water the trees. NOT SMART! I totally should have known better- I do not have a good back.
Well you can guess what happened- yes I've totally messed up my back. It was tolerable up till now but I truly can not move without being in tears. I've messed my back up before but it's never been like this. It took everything in me to get to the kitchen to take some codeine I had left over from when I tore my leg muscle.

I so badly want to go to the airport tonight- I will be devastated if I can't go.
Please pray that this lets up enough that I can function.

I'll be filling you in on the mission trip later this week.

*****Edited to add:*****************
I love Codeine! Just kidding (kind of) I don't like taking pills, but it is helping.
I will get to the airport if it kills me. Thanks all of you that asked!

Oh Cheri I know that pain! It's 5:25 am, but I will be praying for you! I hope you made it to the airport!

Oh Cheri, I am so sorry! I will be praying for this pain to let up so you can go to the airport to meet Mark and Nick. Try to rest today on heat. I know that they say cold, but try both. The heat is the only thing that helps me when I do that.
