Life's Victories

Free image courtesy of

I just felt like rejoicing in public.  God has blessed me with a do-over in the physical health department.  I can't tell you how exciting it is to feel good.  To feel energy.  To feel physically renewed.

I already knew I was blessed.  After all, I'm far more fortunate than some.  Others battle horrible forms of cancer or other debilitating illnesses.  I'm just recovering from the consequences of my own poor choices with regard to my health.

Thank you, Lord, for giving me another crack at it.  Thank you for the great fun that is weight lifting, and walking.  Thank you for giving me a whiff of possibility of smacking a tennis ball again one day.  Thank you for the curiosity you've given me to explore jogging as something completely new that I've never done before.  I feel like a kid again, learning new things.  Exploring.  Feeling my way around in what seems like a new world.

And please use it not only for my physical health and my spiritual, mental and emotional well being, but use it in a way that helps others. 

In Jesus' name, Amen!
