Welcome to the last installment of the Gifts of the Body series. See the previous posts below:
Remember, each week we take a day to thank our bodies for what they do for us. Our bodies provide us the miracle of life and the ability to enjoy it. We need to thank them for their strength and what they provide, instead of wishing they looked different or did more. I’ll start us off!
My Immune System
I thank my immune system and everything that works together to keep me healthy. I am lucky that I do not get sick too often, despite being exposed to things from Makenzie and her little kid friends. My body works well to keep me functioning at my best. Thank you body, for taking care of me.
I used to always complain about my hair. It was too thin, too straight, got stringy, and didn’t hold shape. Now, I thank my hair for being simple to style and the perfect length to pull back in a ponytail. I thank my hair for complementing my features well and having a nice natural color. And for looking decent upon first awaking…like above.
I thank my ears for allowing me to hear so many beautiful sounds – Makenzie’s giggles, Peter’s loving and encouraging words, music, the sound of the ocean, the crunching of fall leaves, the preacher’s words and the songs of worship each Sunday.
What are you thankful for from your body today? Try to think of something different!
