Explanation of Previous Post

Before I shower, I need to explain for those of you who don't know me.
(I'm about to start bawling here).

I have (had?) asthma.

I've had a hole in my lung that almost killed me.

I've had pneumonia countless of times.

I suffered from chronic pain, migraines, fatigue, and sinus infections. I have a body full of scars from procedures and surgeries. I have never been "sporty." I've tried a few times and hurt myself.

I know for a lot of you (especially the marathoners) that two miles seems like such a small thing. But it's not for me.

You see, in bible times, the year of Jubilee was marked by the blowing of a trumpet, the canceling of all debts and captives being set free.

This has been a year of Jubilee for me. Slowly but surely, the shackles of poor health that have held me for far too long are slipping off. There is no reasonable explanation for how or why other than God in His perfect timing and incredible grace said, "It's time Beloved."

I'm very overwhelmed with gratefulness. I wish I could articulate this better. But for once in my life I am truly at a loss for words.
