The blessings of movement!
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
The older I get, the more I realize what a blessing it is to be able to have the use of my arms, legs, feet and all the other attendant body parts that connect and allow me to move.
Every time I see someone less able whether because of weight, injury, illness (mental or physical) I remember not to take it for granted. Each day I wake up able to move is a blessing.
What better way to show appreciation to God for the gift of my body and mind than to use them! I see women in their 60s, 70s, and 80s in the health club everyday working out.
I also see women much younger unable or unfortunately sometimes unwilling to walk to the end of the block.
God stir up the gifts in me and my sparkfriends!
