My New Companion

I went to the foot Dr. today and came home wearing is now my companion for 6 weeks. I wish I could say that I had a skiing accident or something else kind of cool, but no such luck. My bunions have caused joint damage to some of my toes, resulting in inflammation and pain. So I need some therapy, icing of the joint, straps to bring the toes back into place and this beautiful new accessory.
In thinking through this sudden turn of events I could say that the timing was rather poor. However, I choose to think of it as God saying that it was time I slowed down for a bit. Instead of my usual decorating and baking I will now have my Christmas cards written, addressed and sent out in time. I will GET to watch Christmas movies and read my Bible. I will GET to finish up my crocheting project and relax before the fire and Christmas tree (glad it's up and decorated). I will GET to have my husband help me out for a while. I will GET to spend time reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ and what that means to me personally and to all the world.
It's looking more and more like a gift instead of a hindrance.
Thank you Father.

I'm sorry to see that you are laid up for the holidays; but your new plans sound like they will be a big blessing. Have fun reading your wonderful books by your fire.
