Norm has a broken left big toe and just Monday I found out I have a stress fracture of of my left foot. Doctor ordered me off my feet for all of this week May 23rd thru May 28 and the week of May 29th to June 6th. We know we love doing things together; this might be a little over the top of doing something together. I can't make stand and make meals, do laundry, vacuum, working in the yard, etc. Pray for us as we go through this together. Norm finds his foot hurts more when he is on it too much. Even as I ask for pray, we know and trust our heavenly Father through this knowing He is in control which comforts us so much going forward.

I need prayer for physical healing. I had a hip replacement just about 8 weeks ago with no complications. Before surgery, I was in good shape. I could hike for miles but in pain, because it was bone on bone with spurs, did yoga, and strength exercises. Now I cannot walk. I’m doing what I should ...exercises and PT. I feel only God can fix this. It is so emotionally and physically draining. Thank you!
