This is the day where John and I got practice in many things: patience, pain tolerance, finding shelter in an ER waiting room, grace to not go ape on doctors that don't get you, and so forth. As I told our pastor via phone: "I about lost my witness!" For real. Tough day. Turns out going to the ER after the hip socket injection was not wise. The pain meds did not work. So what did we learn from this awfulness:
-That even if you don't really know people at all, if they are your fellow family in Christ you can call on them for help! Thanks again to the Sullivan's for the ER McD's delivery and for letting us vent and listening.
-That John is funny even under horrible circumstances.
-That where we were filming there was something called a "Buseum" which apparently is a traveling bus museum that had stuff from the Holocaust on it. We were unable to go see it, but cool concept.
Here is a verse from the Bible that my dear friend Rachel sent me on my facebook page. This pretty much sums it up!:
2 Corinthians 4:7-12
7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not... abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
