"If the Lord delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand." Psalm 37:23,24
Why is my header a picture of a ladder put out with the trash? Take a look as these pictures show it closer and closer. It is our Easter story. As I reported in yesterday's post, we did not get to have an Easter egg hunt or give a basket to our granddaughter because of an accident. This is what happened. Shortly before our family were to come over, our son called. Our daughter-in-law had fallen from the attic into the living room hallway. We went over there right away, where we found Melissa laying on the couch bloody and bruised, in considerable pain. Our granddaughter ran up to us, upset that her mom might have to go to the hospital. We did what we could to help, which wasn't much. Here's the story. Our son Mike was up in the attic. Melissa was standing on the very top part of the ladder looking into it. The wood actually snapped in two, and down she went. This left Mike up in the attic with no way to get down. Melissa had to drag, scootch herself out of the way so Mike could jump; quite a drop. He was only momentarily hurt. She is left swollen, bruised and with a painful arm and leg. But we were blessed, because it seems nothing is broken or very badly injured. And this is really what Easter is about, isn't it? New beginnings!! And here is something I've learned; not to use wooden ladders, ever. I think metal are much safer.
"The Lord is fathful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down." Psalm 145:13,14
