After declaring that my one little word for 2011 was going to be Heal, and then admitting late Wednesday night that that word hasn't looked anything like what I thought it might, I had to smile when I woke up Thursday morning and discovered this daily text from the Moravians in my email inbox:

Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength! We will sing and praise your power. Psalm 21:13

When Jesus laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God. Luke 13:13

We rise this day to praise you as healer and Lord! By your power, mercy, and strength we can rise this day to new life. In Jesus' name. Amen.

God's timing makes me laugh.  And laugh I did at this reminder that it is He who is the Healer coming at so timely a moment.
