Summer insights

I am reminded of this verse (below)

As well as this verse,

James 1:19

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:”

King James Version (KJV)

I am  feeling very worried, frustrated, anxious, fearful, scared, and angry. I am also feeling very Thankful, Blessed, Grateful, Confident, and Proud.

I know that with time all things will work themselves out, however until that time, there are so many things that need to be considered. The everyday mundane things that we all take for granted. Going to work, taking care of your family, putting on your socks, going to the bathroom, standing up or even taking a deep breath…….things that are all very difficult when your body has been injured.

The lost of a Job and a very long and lengthy recovery. Their needs are many and mounting.

Just last month……..being on top of the world!  Just married, about to graduate and ready to start a new career……everything was fantastic! In a blink of an eye everything has changed. At this point, we truly do not know to what extent the injuries will effect quality of life. These are things that will be dependent on quality of care and recovery.

I am profoundly grateful to everyone the Lord has inspired: from the smallest acts of kindness to the friendship that has been shared,  and for all the prayers and well wishes. It all adds up!

Thank You from my family to yours!!
