Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they?” — Luke 17:17.
This verse has special meaning to me. I am the beneficiary of a transplant and multiple spare parts. For whatever reason, I am living beyond my time, and must never forget to be grateful to God, George and his family, and the medical professionals at Georgetown Hospital.
Every now and then I take my good fortune for granted. I complain about arthritic pain or side effects of the medication that keeps me alive. Foolish me. My focus must always be on the wonders of life here on earth, time with friends and family, and seeking God’s calling.
The healing brought on by my transplant is worth every ache and pain life brings me and a whole lot more. Each day is a gift for us all.
