Gratituesday - Healing

I was reminded today of the first time my oldest son got a really bad cut on his forehead. At the time that it happened I remember feeling devastated at how his formerly perfect face now had this ugly gash in it.

Of course he was still perfect to me, but now had this terrible wound that was the first thing your eye was drawn to when you looked at him. I didn't want anyone looking at my son and thinking of him as anything other than perfect.

OK, so that is the raw, very proud reaction of an adoring mom.

It's almost a year later now. The horrid gash that was so difficult to look at is now almost non-existent.

The reality is that there are so many ways we all get wounded or sick in life.

Today I am so thankful for healing.

God has an amazing way of, so often, bringing us through the wound or illness and giving us complete healing on the other side.

Healing and a little wisdom that will help keep us from a similar wound again.

So beautiful and so true. I think this is one of the biggest things we as people often forget, and it never hurts to hear it or be reminded of it. Thanks!
