Good Day, God!
And it IS a Good Day! That’s because my wonderful husband, Kit, decided — without my iurging — that he still wasn’t over his virus and that it would be smart not to run this year’s Boston Marathon. The fact that cold rain and winds were expected made it seem even clearer.
I was SO impressed! Not that Kit isn’t “smart” BUT, he is a Competitive Male!!! Not running was a hard, painful decision.
He looks happy here mostly because we were on our way to pick up his running number and he was still hoping You would perform a miraculous healing. He said wistfully, “Maybe God will drop down a tablet saying, ‘Kit you can run!'” I said,” if that happens God better show me that tablet, too!”
It’s important to remember, God, that we are blessed. Blessed with all the good family and friends in our lives — all the good fortune and good times — and blessed with each other. It does seem that asking for a miraculous healing is pushing it.
Of course, God, I still have a slight worry that Kit MIGHT wake up feeling great and decide to go for it. Kind of like the old fire horse hearing the fire bell and galloping off. So, please, God, no miraculous healing tonight!
Miraculous healing is a wonderful thing . . . and as You know . . . I have a nice list for You of folks that really NEED healing. Meanwhile, thank You God for the joy of being here . . . in Boston . . . on Planet Earth . . . with each other.
