My first-born son had an accident yesterday, and I’m so grateful he’s still here to celebrate his 25th birthday today. Instead of losing his legs or even his life, he came away from the accident with a scraped ankle and a non-displaced fractured heel. Even though he was in a lot of pain yesterday, he laughed and said, “Well, at least I’ll have the day off on my birthday.” His foot is terribly swollen, and he’s still experiencing a lot of pain off and on, but he’s doing well today. Prayers for a quick recovery would be much appreciated.
I am so thankful the Lord blessed me with Chris, when it seemed I might not be able to have children– then He blessed me with two more. Chris is a very intelligent, soft-spoken, considerate young man with a dry, covert sense of humor and a tender heart. He is becoming a strong, supportive man, as well as my friend. Thank you, Lord, for Your mercy and grace in allowing me to be his mom and for watching over him, especially yesterday, and giving me another day with him.
Happy birthday, Chris. Thank you for being a wonderful son. I love you.
