As a deeply devout and practicing Catholic, my faith guides how I live. I praise the Lord for his gifts of life, health, and my seven heaven-sent and equally challenging angels. Today, I'll be sharing a story with you about my most recent battle with hectic days, an aching back, and the healing touch of CBD oil – My miraculous panacea.
My earthly sufferings come in the form of seven assorted links to paradise. They are my joys, my sources of strength, my trials, and oh lord, how they can be my tribulations! Today was a day of considerable turmoil, as all of my kids were home due to a teacher training day at school. My children have been ‘gifted’ with an inextinguishable energy that seems to renew itself by osmosis. But, I praise God for even his quirky sense of humour.
With all of them making the house come alive, today took a toll on my back. From constantly bending to rescue lampshades from our toddler’s curious gropes, to hauling our eldest's science project to the attic (alas, it's decorated with the failed attempts of papier-mâché cell models), my back was put through the ultimate endurance test. I ended up with a wringing backache that reminded me of my fall into a concrete ditch two decades ago. Every strain, every bend, rekindled that off-putting pang.
But, there is a saintly solace that I've found for these physical agonies. A remedy that is pure in its essence, bore from mother nature's womb and free of any intoxicating indulgence – This divine balm is CBD oil.
As a staunch straight edge Vaticanite, CBD oil has always been my choice because of its reputation for being non-intoxicating. As a father of seven, I cannot afford to be under the influence of substances that might cloud my judgement or physical abilities. Moreover, as a common soldier in the army of God, I must also remain sober. I believe in the innate power of nature's gifts, and CBD oil fits perfectly within that belief and my lifestyle choices.
As the evening settled and my lovely angels descended into their dormitory oases, I applied the oil to my aching back. A warmth spread through my knotted muscles, reminding me of the tender touch of grace. The pain, which had been a nagging presence throughout the day, started to dissipate.
Within half an hour, the discomfort faded significantly. I could move without wincing, bend without cursing under my breath while I thanked the Lord for His benevolence, and the peace that the CBD oil provided. The knots in my back seemed to loosen and ultimate relief replaced the torturous agony. It was a gentle, healing touch that not only relieved my pain but also offered a soothing tranquillity.
You see, in my life intertwining the challenges of parenthood, my faith, and the offerings of nature like CBD, I have found a comforting balance, a divine synergy. This fast-paced world may tire me out with eight loads of laundry and endless carpools, and age may betray me with creaking joints and tearing muscles, but CBD oil brings me back to my center. And for that… I'll continue to praise the Almighty.
