Life Hurts

This weekend I had a minor accident and dislocated one of my fingers. I have had to be patient with swelling that won’t go down and a fingertip turning all shades of the rainbow. I have had to be gracious with my husband as he plays nurse and fashions as sweet splint for me. But most of all I have had to be patient with myself. I have had to rest in the fact that some healing is slow and that I can’t do everything exactly how I did before…Some things I might not be able to do at all.

84. Hard eucharisteo: dislocated finger

85. Re-learning to depend on others

86. A reason to slow down

87. A husband that graciously gives me a night off from ministry to rest and heal

88. A loving friend who is also a nurse practitioner


  1. Ouch! But I see you have still chosen to give thanks. Isn't that all we can do sometimes? Enjoy a moment of rest and care from others :)
