feeling like Jacob...

after he wrestled with God.  i have been wrestling with God, begging Him to teach me how to abide... longing to stay aware of Him throughout the day...  funny how the answer to my prayer is pain.  but it does certainly feel like He wrenched my hip out of socket... it is a constant reminder these days...

i am completely aware that aches and pains come with the territory of pregnancy.  i am the first to admit i generally have amazingly easy pregnancies.  this is my one thing.  hip pain.  it has held off until now, but here at 23 weeks it feels like it is settling in to stay.  and  i am grateful.
