Better Days Ahead

This was a day for treatments and doctor's visits. It started out with a visit to the ENT specialist to have Milbre's sutures removed and the packing taken out of the surgical area. I sat and watched as this procedure was administered and was amazed as he pulled a length of packing about 12-18" long out of her face. Needless to say, after that office visit, things were looking better. She could put her glasses on and see out of her left eye.

We humans are constructed in such a way as to be able to live past our problems and a few months or years from now, we will have a memory of them, but they won't seem as bad as they are when we are going through them. I believe the Creator has so made us so that we can cope with life and all it throws at us. I am thankful that he has given us the ability to "forget those things which are passed" and look forward with anticipation to a brighter future. "Without hope", the Apostle said, "We would be of all men, most miserable."

I trust you have that hope!
