I gotta admit, I have become a wimp. It’s raining here in Santa Barbara.I’m not used to rain and either is my dog Kipper. Neither of us want to go outside. To my Chicago friends, please don’t hate me!
After work today I did what most people do on a rainy day, clean house￼￼￼￼. I pulled down the attic ladder and within minutes start digging through old boxes.
Why did I haul so much crap from Chicago?
As I dug through the boxes, I came across an old photo of myself from high school taken after a football game and a Hornet’s win.
I didn’t think about being happy back then. I just was.
As I climbed down the attic ladder, I smiled contently and thought how much healthier and stronger I am than five years ago when I moved from Chicago and was first diagnosed with Lyme disease.
God is healing me !
I don’t think about Lyme disease everyday like I used to. I don’t wake up feeling like the flu, burning like a match, and experiencing shocks like I am plugged into an electric socket. I am laughing more, being silly, and feeling joyful.
I am feeling like the seventeen year old girl in the photo, just happy.
God is restoring my joy !
” A joyful heart is good medicine.” Proverbs 17:22

I’d recognize that joy-filled, beautiful smile anywhere!
