I’ve been feeling a little down lately. I think that’s normal. The world is coming alive again and it emphasizes some of my limitations.
I cherish the days when I’m healthy enough to walk through the creek behind our little house. There are so many spots to stop and rest. Usually when I slow down, I feel like I’m falling behind. Here, I feel like I’m catching up. I see that life is moving all around me and I’ve been afforded a lovely view.
In some ways, being sick is helping me to catch my breath; eventhough, there are moments when it quite literally takes my breath away.
God made a beauteous garden With lovely flowers strewn, But one straight, narrow pathway That was not overgrown. And to this beauteous garden He brought mankind to live, And said: "To you, my children, These lovely flowers I give. Prune ye my vines and fig trees, With care my flowerets tend, But keep the pathway open Your home is at the end." -Robert Frost
