Ice Cream

Posted on: September 15, 2010

Recently, I had surgery on my knee.  Because of it, I haven’t had much time to devote to my blog and I apologize to my readers.  However, I also am praising God because of you.  Many of you sent warm wishes to speed my recovery and what a difference they made.  Thanks to all that prayed for me.

During my recovery when I wasn’t mobile, Richard and I would spend the evenings watching television.  Near the evening’s end, he’d get up and make two small cups of ice cream, one for me and one for him.  It was an extraordinary way to end the evening – the two of us enjoying one of life’s special treats.  It would warm my heart and soothe my soul to enjoy my dessert comforted by the man I love.

Late in the evening, as I snuggled down to sleep, I’d pray to God to make my recovery quick and complete.  And I’d always hear a small whisper from Him, “I am near.  Don’t doubt that I am concerned about your health and your recovery.  Let your heart be quiet with this assurance.  I care about you and I love you.  I’m with you every moment of the day – during the pain, the grueling physical therapy, the stumbling efforts to walk.  Don’t doubt my presence for a moment.”

Each day I see improvement and each day I praise God for all that he has done for me.  If you are hurting or sad, remember God’s promise in Matthew 28:20, “I am always with you.”

For every hectic day, God is your quiet rest.
For every painful experience, God is your healing touch.
For every disappointment, God is your certain hope.
For every turbulent storm, God is your calming peace.
For every hurtful action, God is your forgiving love.

God is good, He is helping your recovery and He made ice-cream
Its so easy to sink down into your own miseries and say whoa is me, when I do that God guides me to look around and see all the other people who have problems far worse than mine and then He says patience dear one you are mine and I will take care of you always. I cannot cope without my loving Father.
