God Who Sends the Wound...

Sends the Medicine!



This post covers both my Word Filled Wednesday and Thankful Thursday...

I know it's been days again since I last posted something here...and I promise several things. I did watch Sinulog and was about to post some photos, 'til I get into an accident at home.

I slipped...from the chair I was rocking/ playing with (ha, I always play with chairs, and it always get the better of me!) and I fell. while on the way to my trip down to the floor, I was trying to hold on to the table, grabbed the tray instead...and landed on the knife...or was it the knife landing on me.

It was so quick...next thing I knew was, I was bleeding and people at home panicked because I had a deep cut! You would think I cut a nerve...
But just as God's promise to us, he did deliver me from what could be the worst thing that could happen to me...and Psalms 121:7 below said it best!



"The LORD will keep you from all harm --
He will watch over your life..."
- Psalms 121:7



So many things to be thankful for --


♥ God encloses me with His petal of protection. I ended up with 2 lacerated wounds...one deep enough that it needed to be stitch, and one wide enough also needing a stitch to close and heal it fast...yet none of them serious enough not to let me continue the things I normally do. I did not cut any nerve and I did not have to stay in the hospital. Praise God for keeping me from harm. The accident was a clear message that bad things can happen, but He will deliver us from the worst.

Look, I still am typing...

♥ The traffic on the way to the hospital was unbelievable as the Sinulog Grand Parade just ended. To that man wearing an orange shirt who took the initiative to get off his car and facilitated the traffic flow to make sure we get to pass, I may have known your name, but I will always remember you in my prayers...God bless you!

♥ To all the cars who did all their best to let us through, thank you and God bless you all.

♥ To the people at the ER who attended to me...thank you very much. You were so attentive, helpful and fast...thank you!

♥ To the doctor who did my stitch, thanks for carrying the conversation with me while doing the procedure. You made the sight and the whole bearable...thanks a lot!

♥ To the head surgeon, thanks so much for the fatherly care...

♥ To the secretary of the clinic...you are so friendly and caring...may all the clinic in the world be blessed with people like you!

♥ To IT Guy, I have never seen you panic that way for the many years I have known you. Not even during the time we had to rush your Dad to the ER...thanks so much for all care. You made things bearable and easy for me...

And so many other wonderful things to be thankful for! Let me end this post with wishing you all a safe and wonderful day!

I invite you to join us in celebrating God's gace at Word Filled Wednesday...and please remember -- Everyday is the best time to give thanks!

P.S. The blade/knife did cut my arm... but not my spirit. It may leave some marks...but it will be there to remind me how great God is and how He delivered me from harm. I hope people with scars will look at them the same way... ;)
