A Wee Bit o’ Surgery

I re-read these this morning. I needed a chuckle and a boost as I go under the knife this afternoon for a few plumbing repairs.

I tend to worry easily and early, before seamlessly shifting to grumbling and resentment. My DIY stress management.

It’s a better idea and a good thing to make time to remember God’s faithfulness, particularly when facing scary stuff involving smart steady-handed guys in masks, general anesthesia, scalpels, forceps, 3-0 silk and sutures, because we are otherwise dim witted and woeful, complaining forgetters.

Read both. Be encouraged.

  1. Chuck,
    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and Alice.
    We had a good friend who spent the good part of 30 years dealing with his SCI. Mary Jane was quite the trooper in his treatments.
