    One of my daughter's patients who has MS gave her a copy of the following poem and told her it was the only thing that kept her going on bad days.

    Thought I would share it with you ......


    EAGLEMAN

    The everlasting God gives strength

    to the weary and power to the weak.

    Even children get tired and worn out,

    even young men stumble and fall,

    but those who hope in the Lord will

    renew their strength.

    They will soar on wings like eagles.

    They will run and not get tired.

    They will walk and not wear out.

    I know God will not give me anything that I can not handle.

    I just wish that he did not trust me so much.

    I love Isaiah...very comforting. I often pray "lead me to a place that is higher than I" These conditions take you often to that desired place. Where do you go to get away from yourself? I often take minute vacations in my mind to offset what is going on in the here and now.
