A Fall

 Life in this world has been crazy.  Let me pause for a moment and talk about the issue there is in this world with Covid.  People have been sick.  People have been very sick.  People have died and have lost other people in the world because of this virus.  When people talk about going to the Urgent Care, it is because there is a fear of this virus.  And there I am because I fell.   

My foot slipped.  I try not to be clumsy.  I am usually so careful.  I was looking for a student on my campus.  I was with another student and I work in an outdoor campus.  I don't know if my foot cleared the pavement but I went down.  All of me went down on my little wrist and my knee.  I have been so blessed.  I have evaded injury but for now.  What a blessing!!!  They think that I will heal... eventually.  There is hope.  

I am not enough.  I was never enough.  I will never be enough.  I think that I am whole.  Falling and being so incredibly vulnerable has only taught me how truly fragile I am.  Friends, I am in need of a Savior.  All of us in our humanity are in need of a Savior.  There is no real way to explain it.  I was lost but now I'm found.  I was blind but now I see.  

I found truth in the office of the Physical Therapy.  I was trying to move and he said that people heal and grow through the pain.  I stop now.  I never think of pain, any type of pain as a gift.  I have had some pain in my life.  There is  picture of my and my children after my late husband passed away.  We are all smiling.  We were in pain but we were smiling.  They are real smiles.  It was a miracle.  And yet, the people we were then would not be the people we are now if not for what we went through.  And God was with us that whole time.  We were saved.  There was good news waiting to happen.  It was okay to hope and trust in God.

There is pain in my body reminding me that I am healing and there was an injury that I sustained.  I am thankful that it isn't as bad as it could have been.  I am thankful that I can still work.  I am thankful.  I'll keep you posted on my healing.  Let it be said that God is good.  He is good to me.  Praise the Lord!!!
