Really...

Thanks for all your prayers.
We made it home safe and sound last night.

This morning I was furiously cleaning the house.  While wiping down a fan {yes it was off}, my hand slipped and the blade cut my thumb knuckle all the way to the bone!  Zane is gone in the village today so our house-help ran and got a local motorbike who rushed me to the clinic. Thankfully the Dr. was in.  Two novocaine shots, three stitches, 15 minutes of lying down {due to extreme nausea} and $2.50 later I am back home.


Really?!

This week has proved to be one "attack" after another.  I believe the enemy is seeking to steal my joy as I prepare for my trip.

Choosing joy.  Choosing to worship.  Choosing to believe in the Lord's love and goodness.

P.S. Another "really" is the fact that we have 4 bulls/oxen living on our compound.  They will eventually be transported to the farm, but until then, our house smells like a stall.

ouch, I am so sorry about the cut, I can understand the nausea feeling... I sliced my finger a little, and had to lie down for 5 minutes because I felt faint and nausea! :)

Hope everything will go ok, may YHWH protect you and your family with His angels all around. :)

Ouch! This shows me I should not dust today - lol j/k!

I am thinking your trip is going to be very fruitful one and the enemy is trying to stop you.

Stepping up my praying for you! Protection, peace, joy!

Looking forward to lunch later this month!

Let's look at the bright side... yeah. I know. But anyway... $2.50 for repairing your sliced thumb!?

Talk about a steal! That's like the best bargain ever!

But please don't do that again...I know it's exciting to save so much money when you hurt yourself, but really, it's not worth it. Ok?

Take it easy why dontcha.

Hugs. Elevate your thumb.
