I have realized as I try to get healthy, ahem who am I kidding lose weight, that I don't treat my body like the temple it is. I criticize it's lack of stamina and flexibility. I whine because it's not skinny. I whine about my big butt. I hate those calloused feet. I see the scars, and I thank God, and yet I wonder what would have been. I even wonder if my posts are redundant.
I then look at a well timed card, about faith and a mustard seed, and I can only smile a wry grin of yes, Lord, I believe.
And the apostles said to The Lord, "Increase our faith!" "If you have faith like a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you."
