Good Health Is a Blessing


Today I am grateful to God for…

I am going to thank God for blessing me every day through this Lenten season.

Today I am grateful to God for good health

“When you have your health. You have everything!” R.W. Seifel.

If Grandpa Rich said that once, he said it a Bazillion times. And he was right.

And I know that there those of you who are managing health issues of your own or a loved one that will agree. Good Health is a treasure, perhaps beyond financial wealth.

When you are healthy you can MOVE! You can

· Crawl

· Walk

· Run

· Skip

· Jump for Joy

· Hug Someone

· Visit a warmer climate

When you are healthy you can help others. When you are healthy you can put our superpower to work and you can improve someone’s life today.

When you are healthy you can earn wealth. Granted there are many who have overcome health issues to earn great wealth and accomplish great things. If you want to experience someone who has made something from nothing go to check out Nicholas Vujicic.

When you are healthy you can do anything. I am grateful to God to be healthy today.

Until next time…. Keep Practicing

Grace, mercy, joy, peace and prosperity to you and your house from God, our Father, and from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May the Holy Spirit open our eyes, ears and heart to see God’s purpose for us today and everyday.

May the peace which surpasses all understanding keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Please take a moment to respond. Just say Amen or hello.
