My sister's husband was in an accident on Tuesday night. He seems to be doing okay and was even released from the hospital today. But what a scare it was! He has a fractured skull (and had bleeding in his brain) along with broken bones in his face and hand. We are praising the Lord for carrying him through this recovery so quickly. It may be a long recovery still ahead but he's going to be just fine.
The thing I keep thinking is that accidents like his happen on the most ordinary of days. They can happen to anyone at anytime. It doesn't mean that we should necessarily live our lives paralyzed under a cloud of caution. Perhaps instead let's strive to have such an appreciation of the urgency and preciousness of today. I hope I don't sound like I'm giving a soap box sermon. We all live such busy lives and sometimes we need to be reminded and redirected just a bit.
Happy weekend everybody!
