Never Taking a Good Day for Granted

Yesterday my mom visited with Elaine as she does regularly. With Mom’s phone call to me came the good news that Elaine had experienced a rare, good day. Elaine even remarked that her pain levels had lightened somewhat recently and her rest at night improved. Mom also shared of her favorite patient being more upbeat during her visit.

As Mom shared the good report, we both expressed thankfulness to God. When a beloved family member suffers daily with a disability, no one can ever take a good day for granted. God is faithful to answer prayer in His way and time. After hearing of a loved one’s good day following many hard ones, your heart leaps for joy.

Thank You, Lord, for giving Your suffering children even one good day in the midst of afflictions and sorrow. Lord, we are grateful for Your grace; and please remind us on a bad day to thank You for all the good days You have already bestowed upon us.

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
