I broke my ankle two weeks ago.
When the nurse asked about the cast’s color, I chose a bright green to remind me the cast would be off before St. Patrick’s Day. I purposely did not choose purple, the color of Lent. And yet this cast is my Lent.
Having never broken anything before nor ever been handicapped, I am humbled every day by my dependence on others and my dependence on God. God reminds me that I am utterly dependent on Him.
Also, this dependency causes me to be grateful for all God has given: life, love, family, friends, work and… peace. And good.
