I experienced some personal provision yesterday. Daddy had an accident yesterday while working in his shop at home. He was nailing shelves and pierced his arm with a nail. The nail actually went all the way in, up to the head. He had to remove his arm from it because the 2x4 he was nailing nails in for shelves was nailed to the wall. He's a retired fireman so he knows about first aid. He applied pressure, calmly walked up to the house, doused it with peroxide and wrapped it. Then he called me. I told him I would meet him at the ER and a friend from work took me. I'd love to say I was calm but I wasn't. Daddy is 75 years old and on blood thinner. I had no idea what we'd be facing. I texted friends to pray and pray they did. Oh, the wound looked awful and immediately started swelling because of the trauma to the muscle. Daddy never winced when they gave him a tetnus shot or when they numbed his wound for stitching. 6 stitches. That's when it hit me. I love my Daddy.
Questions for Reflection: How has God provided for you lately? Have you stopped to thank Him and lay down hurts to pick up healing?
