As I was walking to each room putting away clean clothes God quietly reminded me that it was a miraculous thing that I was WALKING!
Looking back for a minute.... when I came to Washington I couldn't move my legs. I proceeded to move them and then get myself in and out of the wheelchair. Then it was time to take steps ... steps that made me sweat. Then to walking small distances. And now I walk everywhere with nothing to help me. Some days I don't feel like its real. I sometimes think "did that really happen"! But God reminds me then that it did happen to us and he saw us through!
So back to my story...
I rounded the corner and this thought entered my head "you rounded the corner quickly and fit in the hallway/doorways easily". So then I proceeded to think about the days of wheeling myself around the house in the wheelchair. It was a pain and I would get very discouraged. I would begin thinking... "when will I see the day of walking by myself again... and doing things for myself again".
So I am posting to say PRAISE THE LORD for his healing touch, because I do walk by myself and do things for myself. (Trust me, this experience has made me enjoy the small things like cleaning and laundry.)
I feel as though the Lord doesn't let very many days pass that I don't think of something about our summer experiences.... it is good for me. I hope it is always a fresh reminder of his goodness.
It is a daily reminder just to look at my two miracles! They bring so much joy to my life...
So.. If I ever complain or I am in a bad mood please just remind me of how things could be! Just as my bro did for me the other night.... We walked down the stairs at my mom and dads and my bro Josh looked at me and said "Wow, look at you coming down those steps!" I took a minute to think about it and then said, " Your right! It is a miracle". I want to always remember to thank God in Everything and he has been reminding me of that.
So this is the post God has been nudging me to do... I now feel obedient and hope that it is an inspiration to you in some way.
By the way... my computer is having technical difficulties (our kodak program) so hopefully I will be able to post pics again soon...
