The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

Fact stranger than fiction....

In early December, on their way home from Palm Springs, my sister Teri and Rodger stopped in Redding California. While staying at a motel for the night, Teri had a fairly severe heart attack....hang on's where the story gets weird.

They weren't sure if they still had medical coverage, so she did nothing. They got up in the morning and.....okay, gets stranger still....she drives home....yes, 13 hours straight. Once she crosses the border she heads straight the hospital....but to see her grandkids. After she was there for a while, she then told Robert what had happened and that she was now on her way to the hospital.

She has done severe damage to her heart, and the outcome is yet to be determined. She has had two stints put in arteries that were blocked 100%; she has three others blocked 70% that will be dealt with in the near future. While being absolutely blown away by my sister's flippant attitude regarding her health....I am truly thankful for God's grace in this situation.

Again, another obvious example of "tragedy eclipsed by God's grace"....

Dear Lord, help us all to be more aware of your grace - ever present - in our lives.
