I used play my guitar a lot. When I was in Bible school I was playing for almost 3 hours every day. However sometime after leaving Bible school my arthritis began to act up. I have arthritis in my hands. So for several years my guitar became less and less. I can actually remember crying because I could not play my guitar very much. Usually it would be about 5 minutes (1 or 2 songs) before I could not play any more. I went to the church and had the elders anoint me with oil and pray over me. It did not help at all. Then when I travelled to the Philippines for a year with my family I did not bring my guitar. And actually I hardly missed it. When we got home a few years ago I began to talk off and on about selling my guitar. I even had someone really interested in buying it. But I just could not part with it.
Then a miracle happened. About a month ago I picked it up and decided to play. I played for over 30 minutes with no problems. Well other than being really bad because I have not played in years. But my hands did not hurt! I can only praise Yahweh for that. So over the past month I have been playing my guitar again. It is totally awesome. Now I just have to figure out how to be a decent guitar player.

Praise the Lord! I love hearing you play.

That's great news, Ben. Maybe we can have a family jam session next time everyone is together.

That would be a lot of fun.
