No sweeter word when you are waiting! Waiting to hear so you know what you might spend your summer doing...waiting to know if there are more painful procedures in your future.
I have laughed a lot in the last few years at people who say everything changes (physically) when you turn 40...nothing changed for me! But I guess I'm a late bloomer. Now I realize it may not happen at age 40, but it might be 42 or 46. Yep, 46 has kind of stunk for me. The last year has been one little physical problem after another, physically. Shoulder injury, leading to frozen shoulder; physical therapy the last 3 months, messed up menses, and just 10 days ago - questionable mammogram, biopsy - ouch! I'm really looking forward to turning 47 next month! I'm hoping to get a break from all this stuff. (LOL)
But in the midst of my aging body, I realize I am blessed. I am a Christian with hope. I am surrounded by a loving family. I got to visit Italy and run a half-marathon this past year! This verse from Psalms encouraged me this past week:
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases...
True healing means more than just curing a sick body -- and we praise God for the times he has done that in our lives. No, true healing means to forgive and deliver us from what breaks our spirits and makes our souls and bodies unhealthy. I have been healed from that most destructive thing of all: sin!
