Courage and Earthly Things

It’s  19 days “post op”  (from Knee Replacement Surgery) and this is the picture and scripture that I kept before me during these days.  

God does show up in the earthly things.  I have learned more about myself and I suspect some of that learning will show up in future posts.  

God has been with me each step I have taken and in each  reluctant muscle stretched.  

The brain fog seems to be lifting and I feel like I am coming back.

I am grateful for my husband who took on the care-giving role once again as well friends and family who stood by me during these days with  meals, notes, and phone calls and listened to me on the days it all seemed too much.

    So glad to hear that healing is becoming noticeable. Today is a hard day for me but it has become easier every year so I can see there is healing and ease even where sadness still lingers. Will continue to keep you in my prayers.

      Kim, thanks for your words. I have been learning about the word “courageous” and understanding more what it’s about. Courageous and stoic sort of got mixed up together…i’ll probably write about is one of these weeks. THanks for your friendship

    It’s so good to hear of your progress, Carol. Keep up “your side” of the healing process. Don’t become discouraged in well doing! The “harvest” is just around the corner!
