…Is all I suffered when I fell almost 2 weeks ago! I was on a short step-ladder, hanging my beloved pictures we have collected from our travels. I was coming down and got my foot tangled in the second step! Back, I went on the tile. I hit hard on my tailbone and my left wrist and arm. Just glanced my head! Off we went to the hospital. I was so protected in this fall. I could have broken my neck, my spine, or damaged my arm worse.
When I can see past the pain of the wrist, I am reminded of all the service people in our armed forces who come home permanently without a limb. Being left-handed, it has been extremely difficult to fix my hair, do my makeup, take notes for my job, just being on the phone and trying to type at the same time! But at least my wrist will heal, my tail bone will eventually heal, our wounded warriors sometimes never do.
The apostle Paul said in writing Romans 8:18 “I consider our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” I am trying to remember that.
