An Unexpected Turn of Events

It's been a day. But now I am sitting next to my fireplace enjoying the warmth of burning logs. The pain in my leg is throbbing but mild. The cast, wet from a leaking ice pack left on too long, is finally drying out. The incision is sensitive but the pain killer is taking care of that.

Today I snapped - or more accurately "popped" - my Achille's tendon in two. Completely severed. It made for an interesting day, to say the least. Tennis which led to injury which led to an ER which led to surgery which led to mu current status. And throughout the whole ordeal His faithfulness was more than evident. It was crystal clear. Everywhere one looked He was to be seen. And so in spite of the adversity I feel safe and cared for. Totally.

He is a very present help in trouble and I will ever praise His name.


The girls will pitch in along with Rick and pull the rest of Christmas together. As Danica just said, "It will be fun." Translated - it will be memorable and it will be family working together. What could be better!

You have been in our thoughts and prayers since we heard. Upon hearing about it, most of the family said "ouch!".

I am so happy for God's provision for another driver in the family. His timing is just perfect.

Christmas blessings to you and yours. We miss you all.
