Spring–a time of new beginnings, a time of healing

Well here it is just two weeks following my knee replacement surgery and the beginning of the spring season.  What a change in two weeks time!  The weather perhaps not so much but by the end of the week it promises to be in the high 50’s and the bitter cold has departed. So far as my surgery–great  changes!   The first week was the most difficult, though not quite as bad as I expected.  A lot of that I believe is because God allowed all of my children and grandchildren to be with me through the first week home. What a blessing they all are!   This week several friends have been by for visits as well as family and a wonderful church family has been providing meals for me so I do not have to cook at all.  I am so appreciative of everyone’s kindness. 

Through the 2 weeks, my mobility has improved on a daily basis and the pain has subsided quite a lot.  Today, I had my first followup visit with the doctor, and he was pleased with my progress.  As I titled this piece–it’s a time of new beginnings and a time of healing,  The surgery is healing quickly and I am already walking better than I have in a long time!  What a great feeling to be able to completely straighten out my leg.  Within days I will be graduating from my walker to my cane and within a very few short weeks, no walking aids whatsoever!  

A new beginning with the new season!  It won’t be long before I will be able to get out and walk around the local park and get much more exercise than I have gotten in a long time!   Praise the Lord for the things He is doing in my life!  

To everyone who has been keeping me in their prayers and thoughts, I thank you so much.  You are all a blessing to me.  It’s amazing that there have been blogging friends on several continents who have been praying for me, as well as family and personal friends, church family.  I can’t even begin to express how fortunate I feel to be surrounded with such love and caring. 

Life is truly good!   Thank you Lord Jesus.
