I write this prose following the unfortunate fall of my beloved 88-year-old mom down a flight of stairs, last Friday. She fractured two of the seven vertebrae in her neck, but Praise the LORD, she is not paralyzed, though she must wear a neck brace for the next three months or so. She has just been moved out of intensive care and must remain immobile because there is still the risk of paralysis. In time she will be sent to a rehab institution. I humbly ask those who stop by to leave a prayer or just add her to your prayer list. Her name is Lottie. Sincere thanks.
To all of you, please be careful with stairs!
God Bless!

Don’t take life for granted, my friend
‘Cause no one knows what tomorrow will bring
In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye
Life as you know it could change!
A fainting spell sent my sweet, sweet mom
Tumbling head first down a flight of stairs!
This normally energetic independent woman
Now lies in a hospital bed, the ceiling her only view;
Her head encased in an uncomfortable neck brace!
By the Grace of our Triune God
She is able to speak and move her limbs!
How very important it is
To do good… to be good
Don’t even seek to blame!
Love your enemies and your family
Even if some are unlovable;
But most importantly
Place your faith and trust in Jesus
For He is the Alpha and the Omega
He knows the beginning from the end
His peace will comfort and reassure!
Thanks heaps for your prayers!

Precious Lena,

May the healing power of Christ Jesus be added unto Miss Lottie and the power of His Holy Resurrected Spirit pull her through! Love you both, Rhonda

Recommending the Love of Jesus is the best advice. Putting Jesus first in your poem makes it twice as nice. Amen!

Profound heart-felt reflection, so real.
I'm so dreadfully sorry about this tragic accident, Lena.
Please know my prayers are with you and your dear mother, Lottie.
Bless both of you and although this will be so difficult, may you both feel surrounded by faith and prayers.

My prayers to with you and your mom. I know the feeling. I say a thank you prayer every morning. By the way I am headed to the hospital myself for some same-day surgury. Shouldn't be a big deal but I thought I would tell you. Your prayers will be appreciated.
God bless,

Wow- so scary- thank God she is still with us/you.
Yes- you never know- anyone- in an instant- can be gone.
What an adorable photo. I have several photos of my parents at the piano- and CDs of them playing. Awesome things to remember them by.
