A God Made Day
Last night God blessed me with 8 1/2 hours of sleep. I woke up feeling as good as I have all week. So, we got up and headed out to watch my favorite football team the University of South Carolina. Of course, I knew only time would tell whether I could endure the entire game. Especially knowing it would be colder than usual and the forecast called for a 100 % chance of rain.
Well, the weather man was right about the rain. Even wearing ponchos my wife and I were soaked even before halftime. The game was awesome. It was back and forth from the opening kick. We both have sore throats from cheering so much. The excitement was perfect for those who enjoy such sports.
By the fourth quarter I knew the colder temperature mixed with heavier rain was taking me down. Even still I enjoyed something other than pain for a change. Despite my team losing it was worth every second in that stadium. I’ve been only drinking water and staying away from heavy sweets for the past 3 days. There’s no denying it’s made a great difference. Not once today have I struggled with any anxiety or unbearable pain.
“This is the day the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
