Ta Da


I had my cast taken off today and here I am in the removable splint. Thank God.

On a more serious note I wanted to say how much I respect the Amish community who lost their young girls. I heard that not only have they forgiven the shooter, but have reached out to his family. I think that the Amish truly show the grace of God in everything they do. Their forgiveness is amazing. There is so much we can all learn from them.

That's great news. I'm sure you're a lot more comfortable.
I agree about the Amish. I have just felt heartsick about this whole thing, but they have handled everything with a grace and strength and faith that is a powerful witness to a watching world.

I'm sure you're relieved to get that thing off. My nephew just broke his arm at school today for the 4th time - he's such a clutz... the poor little sweety - he's only 6!

And you're right about the Amish - that is an amazing example of God's grace.

What a relief to at least get that heavy cast off. Sounds like everything is healing really well.

Yes, the Amish are to be highly respected for their peaceful acceptance of even the most heinous things. I've been reading about them for years and they are truly inspirational. I wish I could be more like them.
