About that Face-Plant

A face-plant on the side walk was not my goal. Getting out and about on a beautiful afternoon and walking was what we intended. 

But, I missed another curb; down I went, my cute old forehead making contact with the cement. 

The good news is that the Lord put it in my mind to wear my old-lady sunglasses because of the bright, bright afternoon sun. And they took brunt of the unplanned contact.

Well, kudos to those glasses and my guardian angel, who I am sure was on duty!

Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth
Unseen, both when we wake and when we sleep.

~John Milton. Paradise Lost Line 677

And for the prayers of my family and friends — surely they have been and are a great and healing balm.

A Familiar Balm

Then, the Lord sent another balm: a reminder of my favorite verse that a friend sent. It was  a picture of the car in front her. This license plate shared a rich truth, I hope will help you: Isaiah 46:4

I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
    until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
    I will carry you along and save you.

It’s almost as wonderful as an earlier photo she sent me!

Thank God for BUMPER STICKER Theology

Let Go, and Let Him!

Oh dear one, thank you for reading— and may you have the comfort of knowing the Lord God’s enveloping, strong arms, wherever you are!

Meanwhile I am pondering the advisability of making  a cane an additional walking companion— lest I fail to pick up my feet!
