My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
We all need patience that's for sure, and here we are told how to get it,
We learn to face trials with courage and faith and this we must admit.
Next time a trial comes, face it with courage and joy,
And you'll be the winner, and victory will come as you God's will employ.(RP)
We never know what a day may bring forth. After an afternoon with our family to celebrate Thanksgiving, we returned home. At bedtime, Margie's back pain, the result of her fall the 19th,was so severe we had to take her to the emergency at the hospital in Bellingham. A series of x-rays were taken and the result was a contusion to her lower back. The doctor made sure Margie could maneuver about with a walker before he would dismiss her. We finally got home and around 2 a.m. got to bed. The most painful experience she has is getting in and out of the bed. It is pretty excruciating and I must be there to help her. We appreciate your prayers for her as she heals from this terrible blow to her system. Thanks for praying.
