Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! The forecast is for rain later on today, but right now the sun is bright and puffy, white clouds are floating around. It is very warm and expected to go to 87 as we look forward to another record setting day.
Well, I had another adventure yesterday. One I could do without. I decided to go to KMart for some reason. Just had not been there for a couple years and will not go back. I had to park a little distance from the entrance, but walked in and secured a cart, then shopped all over, but did not see anything I really liked, so just bought a bottle of lotion, paid for it, and went out.Instead of going straight out down the slope, I pushed the cart along the walkway in front of the store. There is a yellow painted stripe all along the edge and I thought it was level with the street. Wrong!
As I pushed the cart to the edge it tilted sideways, and started to tip over, so I grabbed at it and then I tipped over and down I went, landing on my right elbow and knee.Right away, two kind people came and helped me up, then the man went on his way, but the woman held tightly to my arm and was giving instructions to just let me stand a few minutes. I don't even know what she looked like, because I could not even look at her face., but she was surely an angel the way she took charge. One of the Kmart workers came out and had to take info for their report. He asked if I wanted an ambulance, and I said no, because I was not hurt that much. So, He took me inside and I sat on a bench while he got a Band-Aid for my elbow, which was bleeding a little and then took down the info he needed. I told him I did not want the insurance people to call, because there was no need.So, by that time, I was ready to go home. I was not shaken up, just stinging a bit on my knee from two small scraped spots, but today my elbow looks terrible. That's the same arm the books fell on at the library and that bruise is still large and ugly. I am still a little tender on the right side, but was so blessed that it was not any worse!
So I got home safely and took a pain pill for the aches and today I am feeling none the worse for wear. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Where can I find protection and safety?
My help comes from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth!
He will not let you stumble and fall. The one who watches over you
will not sleep. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never tires and
never sleeps. The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands
beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not hurt you by
day nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all evil and
preserves your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come
and go both now and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
