cultivating thankfulness

from the Message version of Colossians 3 :: “Cultivate thankfulness… Let every detail in your lives – words, actions – be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.”

sick in the trome

The whole time I’ve lived in the trome, I’ve thought of how hard it would be to be sick in there. Turns out, it’s not so bad. I was sick Friday and locked myself in there all day. Sitting in the sun and with a space heater, I got the temperature up to 80, buried myself in flannel sheets, homemade quilts, and a down comforter. It was a relief to my aching, feverish body. 

I could lay and sleep and watch iPad tv on the other bed. And then I was healed.
