A friend asked me yesterday how I was feeling, I said, “Really good.” She’s the kind of friend that searches past your words.
“Really?” She said with a little furrow in her brow.
“Really,” I said. “I am.” She didn’t seem convinced, she’s that way. “Well, you look really well,” she said.
“I feel better than before.”
“It’s like when you dance, your body learns how to compensate for an injury. I think the rest of my body got stronger as it supported the part that was ill. And I got lots of extra good care and prayer!” I said. “So now I’m stronger than before!”
“Oh,” she said. “I like that.”
And as my friend Nancy said at our Bible study that morning, it’s no different than when one person helps another. “It may be hard because of what they’re going through,” she said, “but you’ll discover when you help someone, it opens up the door to Joy!”
Joy makes us stronger.
It is a new season, new needs like leaves all around us. And you only need to see the leaves to get a glimpse of the Beauty that’s possible.
