Lately each day has been quite the struggle. I start my day groaning as I have to bring my body to a sit from a restless night of sleep. Pain continues to run throughout every part of me. A constant reminder of what it is to live with Lyme Disease.
The other morning I found myself telling my husband I feared I would end up as our beloved black Labrador Retriever "Rockie" had. Her legs no longer receiving messages from her brain. She totally was rendured unable to walk. I still believe to this day that it was Lyme Disease that took her. We both started having movement disorders at the same time. It was Rockie that brought the tick into our home. How she loved to romp around on the golf course here. At least she lived her 12 years of life to the fullest!
As Easter quickly approaches I turn my attention to our Lord. I told my husband that all my pain and suffering do not come close to what Jesus endured for all of us. I feel somewhat guilty in complaining about my pain. No human will ever suffered as he did for all of us. Do we deserve such an unselfish gift of love?
I look around where I live and feel sad. Only today at a nearby high school there was yet another shooting. The TV news is filled with reports of famous folks and their spouses affairs. Our world filled with natural disasters, murders, robberies and more. You all know what I am talking about as you live in the same world as I do!
Yet, I am thankful. Thankful that I have been spoken for. Saved. I feel blessed and loved. I feel sad that all our atrocities caused our Lord such horrible, unthinkable suffering.
Yet relieved to be freed from it all through his immense sacrifice of himself for us.
Love does not get any purer than this.
To lay down ones life for another.
I hope that we will all take the time to be kinder, more loving and giving to one another. When someone is hurting I pray we will be there to hold their hand and shower them with prayers and friendship. If someone is forgotten may we take the time to visit them. If someone hungry may we feed them and if cold may we cloth them. May we all be the person OUR GOD longs for us to be.
May we uphold his most important commandment to us all....
