Block 4 (not perfect but it's mine)
Back many years ago when I was pregnant, I got a blood clot in my right leg. I had to be put on bed rest. Every once in a while, it flares up when I have been on my feet a lot. I am keeping my 3 grandchildren this summer, so I am up on them all the time. Well, last week, it flared up. It hurts so bad. I have to stay off of them as much as I can when this happens because I sure don't want a blood clot again. I am fine, but I do have to be careful when this happens. Yesterday and today as I was working on my quilt blocks for Amanda Jeans Quilt-a-long, I found myself trying to sit down as much as I could because of the pain in my leg. I thought to myself how bad it would be to be crippled or not have my leg. It made me so thankful for my legs.
Then I went to Church this morning and my Pastor was preaching about how "PRECIOUS" the Blood of Jesus is. He was telling us how sometimes we don't realize how "PRECIOUS" something is, until it is not there. Just like water.....we don't think a thing about getting a drink of water, but if it was gone we would realize how "PRECIOUS" it was. I thought it was amazing that yesterday I was thinking the same thing about my leg. I didn't realize how ''PRECIOUS" my leg was until I couldn't use it like I normally do. This has really made me stop and think. Our Lord is with us all the time and I know that, but do I always really realize how "PRECIOUS" HE is. Is it just when I need him that I call upon HIM? Is it then when I realize how HE died for me and how "PRECIOUS" HE is? I want to always be thankful that HE is here for me. I want to always know how "PRECIOUS" the blood of Jesus is.
