“Holding her hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means “Little girl, get up!” – Mark 5:41
I was (ahem), researching some tattoos 😉 when I came upon a photo of a inner wrist tattoo that read “talitha koum”. How powerfully those little words spoke to me. Jesus was speaking new life into a dead girl. The life that that was over had been made new again. That’s incredibly powerful stuff!
I am spending some time with my family in Oregon here in these few weeks before school begins again. It has been a great opportunity for me to slow down, get away from all distractions, and renew myself for the coming school year. I have another diagnostic ultrasound as soon as I come back to determine what the next step for me is. I have reached a point where I can honestly say that whatever comes is… truly okay. I am blessed woman, and I will no longer waste my life I things that I can not have or do. I will focus on what I HAVE and what I CAN do. And those lists are plentiful.
I feel as though the words “Little girl, get up!”, have been spoken over me, and there is no way I am going to ignore that command.
