Strange because it feels like I've been gone for a long time and the world went on without me! Strange because I don't have an answer for people who don't know where I've been this past year and innocently say to me, "I haven't seen you here in a while."
Wonderful because I feel like I am finally emerging from a fog! Wonderful because I am alive! Wonderful because I am healthy.
I actually do a Step class at the gym, followed by a little bit of weight lifting and yoga. As I sit on the weight bench testing my long dormant muscles, I marvel at the fact that I am there and I am healthy. I watch all the people exercising and wonder if any of them have cancer. I hope they are aware of the blessing of their health.
I'm sure I will be sore tomorrow; but as I crawl out of bed in the morning and feel the ache of my muscles, I will praise God for every twinge, for He has been good to me and I know it!
"Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours!" 1 Samuel 25:6
