Coming to terms with aging is not an easy thing. Recently, I was rear-ended on the interstate. There was a lot of congestion and we all had to stop suddenly. We know how the scenario goes, I braked hard not to hit the car in front, hoping and praying I would not be hit, when bang! We both pull off so that others can get around. I call 911. The other driver comes over with his insurance information. Rescue comes and I am taken to the hospital because my back is beginning to hurt. Different aches begin to be noticed as we are proceeding to the ER. I go through the process at the hospital. I come home and fall asleep. Sleep is good.
Over the next few days, I have found different things hurting for a moment or so. My thinking is, really! I know I am on the downside of my 50’s, but this body of mine needs to recover more quickly, like when I was 20!
Let me interject here: I am grateful for everyone who has been praying for me! I do believe in the power of prayer! It is my go-to default whenever anything happens! God is just so good! I just want my body to respond quicker…is it too much to ask?
The answer is yes, it is. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in miracles! I believe God gives me the opportunity to partner with His word to work in my life. I also know that I have a responsibility to take care of this temple He has blessed me with. In the natural, I have to make adjustments. I need to pay closer attention to what it is telling me.
What this means is, I will for the next few days continue to take care of my body. I will not try to push it to do things I just can’t-do at the moment. I will take the slower path of rest. Then hopefully by next week, I will be up to doing some of the more fast-paced activities I am used to.
Thanks for listening…..
