Hanging On The Edge. ...

A man who is scared of heights is stuck on a cliff with nowhere to go, especially since there are hungry bears around who smell his scent.

This is one of the worst possible scenarios that could have ever happened ot me ...

One:  I am scared of heights.  Terrified of them.  Want to watch a full grown man turn into a baby?  Get my feet off the ground, and there you go. 

Two: I am unable to move because I hurt my leg.  I'm afraid it's broken.  Had a nasty accident and I think the bone's gone through ... or about to ... the pain is unlike anything I have ever experienced ...

Three: I am hanging on the edge of a very high cliff; the ground below is hundreds of feet down.  The thought of it is making me extremely nauseated.  

Can't move to get away; praying like hell that the rocks supporting my weight don't give way, so I tumble down, risking further injury or worse, death.  Mine.  

I'm in Alaska, in a remote area full of conifer trees and forest.  If anybody finds me it will be a miracle.  Not a soul for miles around, but there is plenty of wildlife, including two hungry grizzly bears who have only one thing on their teeny little brains: lunch.  And today's "blue-plate special"?  Human.  ME.

If I ever survive this ... if there was ever a time I needed God's help, it's NOW.  Oh, God, where ARE You???  I need You.  Not yesterday, not tomorrow.  Today.  THIS HOUR would be good.

Please send someone to help .  Don't let these rocks give way ... 

~To be continued.~
