That is one thing that being sick makes you realize. The complexity of our bodies truly has no explanation other than divine creation. It is awe-inspiring. For everything to function is an absolute miracle - a miracle that too often is taken for granted. Today I ordered a print from Sevenly (an amazing organization that gives $7 from every item purchased to a weekly cause; this week it is CURE International to provide babies in Uganda with life saving brain surgeries!) and the print reads as follows:
Someone is praying for the things you take for granted
But I still take so much for granted: God's eternally unconditional kind of love, my family being by my side to hold me up when I am faint and bring me food and drive me to the doctor, to have a doctor, a car, a bed, a life.
Today while waiting for my CT I was reminded that things really are not that bad. Despite me sitting in a wheelchair, I was definitely not the sickest of the bunch waiting to have my head or some other part scanned. One man looked as though he were made of bone and skin alone. But you know, he seemed happy. He had a smile on his face and his wife beside him. Being in the hospital today caused me to open my eyes a little wider to the blessings in my life. To the miracles that occur every day here. To the beautiful divine words of God. To the everyday blessings that bring joy to my heart. To knowing I am His and He is mine.
