Thanks for every one’s prayers! It’s great to have Phil (my father in law) recouping after open-heart surgery at our house. His heart is “fixed” but he has a lot of pain from the incisions, broken bones, and bruises from the surgery.
It reminds me that whether or not our hearts have been “fixed” by the forgiveness of Jesus, we all are “wounded” from life’s bruises, cuts, and breaks. I know I’m probably just “preachin” to myself here (I am suck at being sensitive…I count any day that I haven’t said something stupid and insensitive to someone a banner day!!) It’s important that we cut each other some slack and realize that all of us are in some way “playing hurt”.
