"Better Is One Day"

So goes the chorus, "....In His house than thousands elsewhere." Yesterday with our Word of Life Fellowship, was a good day in the House of the Lord. The testimonies of victory, healing and blessings were encouraging. We learned from Genesis 6, that "I am responsible for my choices" .

Milbre's visit to the doctor on Tuesday afternoon included good and bad news. As the doctor showed us the pictures of her injury from the fall, he indicated they showed a narrow escape from much worse damage. A fraction of an inch more, and she would have cut her optic nerve, which would have blinded her in one eye. That was the good news. The bad news was that she has four fractures in what he call the "tripod" and suggested surgery to repair the fractures and place a couple of very small plates to hold the bones in proper alignment.

Therefore, she has decided to have the surgery and it will take place next Monday, July 23, at the local hospital. There may be one overnight stay.

Even in those moments of hurt and pain, we can find things to be thankful for. I thank God for His hand upon Milbre and that she wasn't injured any more than she was.

Better is one day in His courts...and I'm glad that you still have the privilege of enjoying your wife! God is so good, and I'm glad that she didnt' have a more severe injury. God's best to you both.
