It really IS about God and having a Christian / faith driven perspective. I don't want to toot my own horn here, but I thank God every day that I only broke 1 bone in my hand!
On August 11'th, my birthday, I got my hand smashed in our wood splitter. At first I was thinking that it is just a little smoosh ;) But then after taking my glove off realized that it was much more than that! I blacked out from the pain. After the ambulance ride w/ my friend Morphine, I found out that I broke a bone and bruised my knuckles, fingers, muscles, etc. Besides the quarter size hematoma, I am doing pretty good. The break doesn't really hurt. I haven't even opened the bottle of pain meds! Of course after typing and blogging it starts to hurt ;)
The moral of the story is I could be crying, whining and complaining about what a terrible thing has happened. Instead I choose to praise God for watching over me that day like every day. I can't imagine what my life would be w/o his
protection. So I will rejoice with my splint!
For those in
pain.....rejoice! Besides, it drives Satan crazy! :)
