The Good Raised Up goes down...
but not out

This post is a brief note to say that I'm not sure when I'll be inspired to write some more, mainly because it seems like I have a contracted "an unspecified virus."

My symptoms have been all over my body-map for the past four days: headache, light nausea, low-grade fever, lethargy... and an odd sensation on my upper back that reminds me of sunburn. The doc says I just need to wait it out, and "waiting it out" might mean up to another 5-7 days.

I had had plans to drive to Winnipeg, Canada to attend Canadian Yearly Meeting sessions which begin this weekend. I'm not saying I'm going, but I'm not saying I'm NOT going either.

What would make all this down-time just a bit more interesting would be an inspirational thought to write about for my next legitimate post... just as long as I don't get worse to the point of needing any additional medical care, thank you.

Hi Liz,

I hope your "unspecified virus" turns out not to be anything serious and that you recover quickly! I'm holding you in the Light.

Ugh: blessings and healing wished upon you, friend! I hope you find rest and wholeness. Stinkin' virus.

Oh, yuck. I hope you feel better soon. I'll be holding you in the Light- it'd be a bummer to miss CYM!

Oh dear. Hope you feel better soon.

My 10 year old niece had something similar last week - fever, etc. but her back sort of itched and would swell whereever she scratched it, so she had these lines like she'd been whipped all across her back. But it didn't really hurt that badly.

Ummm, an inspirational thought, hmmmm.

Here's a quote repeated at PacYM that I've been thinking about: "Truth without love is violence, love without truth is mere sentimentality." I forget who said it.

Or why is it that when I have time to travel, I have no money, and when I have money, I have no time?

Or what responsibility do I have for words that I use if others use them differently?

Or how different is where I am today from where I thought I'd be by now when I graduated from high school?

Or "The snail does the Holy
Will of God slowly." G.K.Chesterton

These may or may not inspire you to write, but they are some of the things I'm thinking about and I'm always glad to hear your take on things.

Hey, everyone, thanks for commiserating...

And Robin -- maybe when I have more energy, I can consider some of your "suggested inspirations."

Currently, I would say, that like the snail, this lethargic servant hopes to do the Holy Will of God... at some point in the not too distant future.
