Time is short. I have dinner bubbling away on the stove and several projects that need to be finished. So this is going to be brief.
I’m feeling a bit rushed today with so much to do, but I am thankful for today. And for our yesterday and days to come.
You never know what a day will bring when you first set your feet on the floor. And lately we have had a few surprises. Surprises we would rather not have visited on us, but they came all the same.
Yesterday was a “surprise” sort of day. I got a call from my husband’s friend and boss, saying that Joel had crushed his hand in the mixer at work and that they were on their way to the ER.
After several hours in the ER, Joel was taken back into surgery. They repaired his broken and mangled thumb by placing 3 pins in it. Thankfully both of his tendons were still intact, they had thought one of his tendons had been tore. He had a nasty gash that they repaired and then sent us home with pain meds and instructions for further doctor visits, etc. He is looking at many weeks off of work as his thumb heals and he gains mobility of it again.
Life certainly has been interesting around here for the past three months!
I am so thankful for our faith. Our God is bigger than anything that may come at us in this life. So, today, I am blooming even though I feel there has been much adversity here lately. God is for me, so who could ever be against me! (Romans 8:31)
