Thinking back to the early months of 2006 certainly puts life into perspective for me again. These days I often think “5 years ago or 3 years ago I couldn’t have done ___________.” And I hope those thoughts continue to cross my mind. Because the minute I stop thinking those things is probably the minute I’m starting to take a few too many things for granted. (full post here.)
It has now been 6 years. And as backwards as it may sound, I’m grateful for the daily physical struggle because it is a constance reminder of what a powerfully healing God we serve…a reminder that He is in control…and a reminder to savor the ordinary, everyday gifts in life.
