This morning I will go to the Orthopedic Surgeon for an injection in my knee. The injections help delay having knee replacement surgery. He injects hyaluronic acid but I like to tell people it is hydraulic fluid because it gives me a lift.
Keeping a sense of humor while living with chronic illness helps me to not get too down about it. Laughter is good for the soul.
When the Lord restored the fortunes of[ Zion,
we were like those who dreamed.
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
I love Psalm 126 because it doesn’t just speak about laughter and joy It talks about having been through an ordeal and experiencing the joy of the Lord. Psalm 126 does not deny life’s difficulties. It focuses on the Lord not the difficulties.
Spending time with Jesus gives me the strength to keep going. It keeps me going spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
