LifeSavers: Health

You know once you've been sick, you start being thankful for health again. But it seems as though the healthy always take health for granted. I'm gonna work on that! I'm sooooooo grateful, thankful, relieved to have health restored to our home again.

Fevers have broken. Now all the congestion is slowly leaking out of every crevice on my kids' bodies. Eyes, ears, noses-- everything is a little gooey around here. But this too, is a sign of health.

My baby girl is having a harder time with the congestion breaking up. So you can still pray for her.

Be thankful today for your health. I mean REALLY thankful. Thank God you're alive. Thank him you can see. Thank him you don't have 105 fever. Thank him for life. Contrary to popular opinion, we don't deserve it. Life and health are gifts given and sustained by God. Not because we deserve it. Because He is good. Not that we deserve for Him to be good. He is because of who He is, not because of who we are.

Okay, now that life is starting to resemble normal . . . more quacky, "Jody, just as she really is . . . " posts to come.
