This has started out as humdinger of a Summer! Goodness, every time I turn around something seems to be going on with this body of mine. Hmmm, is this because I’m getting older? The fun of this week was a rollicking romp with pink eye and admittedly though the color pink is my favorite color, it is not my preferred eye color. As I type, my left eye is blurry and itchy but I am so filled with gratitude that I will blink the blog through to completion.
It could be so easy to whine, cry and lament “why me? what next?” but in truth all I can say is “Thank You, Lord”! Thank you for allowing me to be able to see the doctor and get a diagnosis and medicine. Thank you for the clarity and acceptance that the pains, disappointments and discomforts are so incredibly temporary as hiccups in Your great plan. What can I do to lead someone else to the Lord? What words of comfort and encouragement can I provide? I am sustained and filled with joy knowing that even this was part of the plan to do more for you.
Today, I am grateful for the stillness various illnesses bring, because they afford me the time to sit and quietly reflect on the unmeasurable goodness of my loving Father!
Making His praise glorious!
