Friday 8/7/09 - "THE CALF"



He limped with crippling pain from a badly strained calf muscle.

She placed her hands there and heat like a hot oven poured in.

The pain began to pull back from the outer calf areas, slowly shrinking inward into a tiny ball.

Suddenly he jerked as the knot of pain jumped out of his leg.

My husband's hands used to have that heat. It was amazing when I had a sore muscle and he would rub it for me. It was the heat from his hands that helped more than anything. Now, unfortunately, that heat is no longer there.

I think that I need that in the night when I get leg cramps. Instead, I walk around until they go away. Hot hands---like that.

Will the pain really be gone?
Will he be able to walk normally again?
Will she share her healing strength with others.
