health, healing, cure
health, as of sound mind
refreshing of the body, of the mind
relaxed, tranquility of mind, meekness
This is where I am today. Surgery…knee arthroscopy: torn meniscus, arthritis rubbing on bone. A week ago, that surgery. Yesterday, doctor appointment. I am walking without Mama’s walker, weight-bearing on the right knee and leg. I am not quite ready to leap out of those stalls with the calves, but soon! I begin outpatient physical therapy this week to gain strength, better mobility. God is so good and so gracious to this one. I am so grateful to my Healer.
Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. Jeremiah 33:6
A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh,
but envy makes the bones rot. Proverbs 14:30
A sound heart, a heart of meekness, a tranquil heart, a peaceful heart…gives life to this flesh. LORD, You alone have given me this calmness throughout this time. The trust in my surgeon comes from You. The staff that took care of me from pre-op to post-op and all of those in between were just so kind and caring. You sent me to this small hospital that is doctor owned two years ago for a hip replacement that first time. It was just as fine in an outpatient setting as it was when I spent nights after surgery. You know my every need and You held my heart and mind in Your mighty hands. Your heart melded around mine and kept all systems running perfectly as I underwent this surgery. Oh, God, I praise You. My heart tonight still feels the peace of a week ago. You have walked every step with me this week. With all the love I have to give You back, I hand my heart overflowing with love to You, O Father. In the Name of Your Son, I pray. Amen.
