Four weeks ago I fell off a ladder and suffered a compression fracture of the 2nd lumbar vertebra. Two weeks ago I had acute bronchitis and was coughing hard enough to make my lower back hurt even more. Today I still have some residual back pain and chest congestion. But oh how much worse it might have been! I am basically back to my normal routines, including the morning run.
Thank God for sparing me worse injury. Thank God for healing my broken body. But Thank God also for getting my attention and reminding me of how very dependent I am on His daily grace.
