I am grateful for all my painless days.
"A Painless Day" by joycetreasures
Another day, I have so much to gain.
This morning, I awoke feeling wonderful with no pain.
I got out of my bed by myself with no help.
Looked at my wall clock and saw eight hours I had slept.

Opened my fridge and saw the eggs and bacon.
I cooked them happily and added hot sauce, if I am not mistaken.
No cane for me today, I am walking simply fine.
Maybe a stroll later while the sun is sunny and warm, after I dine.

Many days I lived with so many aches and pains.
My knee, back and feet hurt severely, it is hard to explain.
I did not complain about my pain much but was in constant prayer.
But admittedly, I asked the Lord, do you care?

Yep, no medical challenges for me today.
I feel God's goodness is coming my way.
This will be a painless day with no stressing.
God, my prayers go to you for today's beautiful blessing.

I wonder how many people live a much lower level of life, as far as joy and peace, than what's available to them, but they've just been in that condition so long, they don't even know there's anything wrong with it. You know, you can be dysfunctional so long that you learn how to function within your dysfunction. And you don't even realize that there's a better life available to you. But I want you to know that Jesus said, "The thief comes only, only to kill, steal, and destroy". But, Jesus said, "I came that you might have and enjoy your life, and have it in abundance to the full, until it overflows".

Don't let pain keep you from enjoying your life!
