Acts 9:32-35

Our family listens to a chapter of the Bible every morning.  We’re currently in Acts, and there is one story, where Peter healed a bedridden, paralyzed man with  Jesus’ power.  The man had been in bed eight years when Peter asked him to get up and make his bed.  Think about what that day in the man’s life must have been like.  All of a sudden, he doesn’t have to stay in bed.  He’s not paralyzed anymore and can even make his bed!  I wonder how he lived his post-healing days.  Maybe after making his bed he got something to eat and started to do things he had done before he became paralyzed.

There are many things to be thankful for!  You just didn’t know making your bed was one of them.
