Health, A Treasured Gift

From early last March through early May, I experienced an unwelcome disruption in my good health status.  Being an active and vibrant person normally, frustration enveloped me when I had no strength or will to get out of bed. I even stopped creating articles for this blog due to extreme weakness and fatigue! I spent half of each day in bed.

As a substitute teacher in public schools, exposure to many sicknesses is unavoidable. Thinking at first I just had a bad cold and cough, I continued to work. Soon I found myself getting weaker and the coughing increased. After two doctor visits my diagnosis changed.  I contracted several bacterial diseases that needed three antibiotics to rid my body of these attacks. Slowly my strength returned and my attitude improved.

Rarely do I face illnesses, but when I do, it reminds me of how precious a gift good health is. I thank the Lord for the doctors He provides and the medicine to enable my body to fight the germs and diseases. I thank Him as the Great Physician Who created the human body. I am grateful that He knows exactly how to restore it back to good health when it is according to His will. One of my privileges and responsibilities as a child of God is to pray for those who are ill and those who need their ravaged bodies repaired or healed through operations, therapy, hospital stays, or treatments through doctor visits.

How about you? Are you normally a healthy person? How do you react when disease attacks your body? Let me hear from you, please, and thanks for stopping by my blog.
