My Dad is celebrating his birthday this week. He went to get a blood draw today and his labs are looking really great. It's funny, when health is secure and our birthday comes, we think about what we would like to do on that day. Where you would like to eat, who you would want to spend it with... What about...For my birthday, I would like to be alive.
Through all the research I have done about blood and bone marrow and the cells that individually make up our blood, I am learning that every birthday we celebrate is a miracle. There are so many components that have to be in working order, just for our bodies to function. And this is just one part of the human body. I marvel at the thought of such an incredible piece of handiwork that the human body is.
Despite what the doctors have said and what my Dad's body has been through, he continues to enjoy life. His life is in the hands of the Creator. As is all of our lives. There is so much to be thankful for during this season of thanks. Every day is a blessed miracle of God to be lived for the purpose of glorifying Him.
You have granted me life, and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit...Job 10:12
