Prayer please

Hi, Friends!
After carefully watching and worrying that Louis might fall, today I fell. I was taking the ironing board out of the closet and had it in front of me when we got caught in the bedspread and down I went face first. I landed with my knees on the board and the floor and took the brunt of the fall on my right thumb and shoulder.

After a couple hours in Ed White's ER and x-rays with Brian Alnes driving us to the hospital, the verdict is no break, but they put a cast on the thumb in case of a hairline fracture. I took it off because it is too hard to do anything with the right hand.

I am in a lot of pain with my shoulder but our Brian is getting a Darvoset pres. filled for me so I can sleep tonight.

Please pray for quick healing and for less pain. It is difficult to drive, dress and all the other things that require lifting of the arm,

Thank God it wasn't worse! Love and hugs,

Hebrews 12:1-7

Good morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the beautiful day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

I hope some of you saw the blazing pink of the sunset last night! It was a sight to behold! And the half moon this morning, with Venus very visible in the southeast was a shining example of God's greatness!

Due to an early appointment for lab work, this is a little late today, but I wanted to share this passage from Hebrews that I read in my devotional this morning;

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses in the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish. He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy he knew would be his afterward. Now he is seated in the place of highest honor beside God's throne in heaven. Think about all he endured when sinful people did such terrible things to him, so that you don't become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives to your struggle against sin.

And have you entirely forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you, his children? He said,

My child, don't ignore it when the Lord
disciplines you.
and don't be discouraged when he
corrects you.
For the Lord disciplines those he loves,
and he punishes those he accepts as his children."

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
