May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 NIV

God's Grace in Unexpected Accidents

Who knew when I woke up on Thursday, December 27th that by that evening, I'd be sitting in a hospital bed with two pelvic fractures in my right hip. Our car with me as passenger was t-boned at 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon by a man who ran a red light. There is a possibility that he might have been intoxicated but we'll know more about that when we get the official police report. The car has been totaled and I'm using a walker while my hip heals over the next 4-6 weeks. Life has come to a sudden slow crawl.

But God is good and I have experienced an amazing outpouring of love and concern and care from friends and family. I do believe that God has said "Not yet" as he has granted me grace to live once more as wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

So here I sit.....queen of the red chair.....taking it easy, catching up on reading and trying to not get to anxious to get up and get going. Everyone from doctors to friends have told me to take it one day at a time and allow myself to heal so that is what I must do.
