Still at home after surgery, mending very well I must say. I am planning to go back to work on Friday by the grace of God, and I look forward to what He has in store for me.
Being home has been good. Delightful actually. Because my own life slowed down from 100 to 0 in about 3 hours, I am discovering the joy of being truly involved in the lives of others. I always wanted that, for true care for others is surely one measure of life operating in me, and I would say that I have honestly cared for people from my heart. I can’t help it, that is part of who God made me. yet my care for people is juggled with everything else in life, and that is neither right, nor wrong; it’s just the way it is. These days, though, there isn’t much of “everything else” in my life, and I can truly listen, truly care, truly consider what I hear, truly pray and love. This is more wonderful than I can tell you. The information I get from people becomes the platform I am using to love them freely. I have a sense of living fully, yet I am still confined to my own home. Interesting, isn’t it?
