No Broken Bones!

There were plenty of surfers and walkers along the beach promenade, but then a strong wind picked up.  We tried putting weights on our literature, but the wind became too strong!  We decided to pack up our Bibles and books head home.

I was pushing a load of Bibles in my cart when I hit a bump in the concrete and went flying!  I landed on my hands, knees and face, quickly drawing a crowd.

A young man seemed to take charge:  “I saw the whole thing!  Don’t try to get up. Take a deep breath.”
I did as I was told.
“Do you think anything’s broken?”
“I don’t know.  My hands and knees hurt.”
“Can you move your hand?”  He gently lifted my arm.
“Can you move your legs?”

A bleeding knee protruded from a hole in my new jeans.  The other knee was beginning to swell.

We made it to the car and ten minutes later I was home.  My husband brought ice bags for my knees.

That was yesterday.  Today I’m fine!  Other than a scraped knee and bruises, not a scratch on my face and NO broken bones!  Wait!  My last bone density test indicated fragile bones!

Thank You, God!  Obviously You have other plans for me now!
I’ll keep praising You as I move ahead.

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
