As many of you are aware, I have not posted in several weeks because of back surgery that was conducted on September 8.  I was in the hospital for 3 days and then was transferred to a rehabilitation hospital for the next 10 days at which point, on September 21, I was discharged to come home.

I thank each and every one of you for the prayers and kind wishes extended to me during this time.  The Lord has been very real to me as He has minimized pain as He extended healing to my body, through the good work of excellent physicians and skilled rehabilitative caregivers.

I am still on a walker (which is quite cumbersome) and in physical therapy 3 days a week, so I am not yet ready to undertake scheduled posts on The Ruminant Scribe.  I did want to update you and let you know that our God is our ever present help in time of need.  Psalm 46:1  He is ready to heal and comfort His children even if it relates to the horrific actions taken by someone we cannot understand. 

I do want to encourage you to pray for those who were injured in the mass shooting in Las Vegas earlier this week, and to pray for the families of the many who lost their lives through the evil actions of a man shooting rifles at random people in a crowd. 

And, thank the Lord for the actions of the first responders who were able to get to the hotel room and subdue the shooter before he could unloose untold hundreds of rounds of ammunition onto the street below.  Praise His holy name that the carnage, as bad as it assuredly is, was limited by the intervention of the police and first responders. 

Blessings to each of you, and I again thank you for your prayers.

  1. Thanks so much. Prayers are certainly the best medicine that I know of. God has been gracious and the pain is surprisingly minimal. Now I just need to regain strength but the physical therapy is working on that issue.


  2. I’m always amazed at how our bodies can recover and also mindful of how fragile we really are. Really glad to know that things are moving along and I can identify with the walker, I had to use one for a while when I broke my leg a couple of years ago BUT …… you’ll be back in no time, it just seems like a long time! You’re still on my prayer list. Blessings to you and yours Linda.
