Tea Talk- The Twisted Ankle vs. The Birthday

I'm having tea. Shocking I know since I'm usually on my 3rd cup of coffee by now.

My cup is the mug my mom brought back from her trip to Sea World in San Diego. It has Shamu on it. It is quite large and holds about 3 cups of liquid. A great cup for coffee.

On my mind is my husband's birthday. I had great plans for today: making his favourite dinner-Oma's Pork Chops; making Lemon Meringue pie with the kids for desert; and having a nice evening with him. This plan has been dropped. Last night while walking with the baby to the neighbours I somehow twisted my ankle. I actually believe the road came out and attacked me. :)

My amazing husband took this morning off to take me to our local medical clinic. I have to keep off my feet for the next week, as much as possible (a great reason not to clean the house), however, this affects my birthday plans for my husband tonight. So, therefore I'm feeling a little depressed.

Last week my Bible Babes and I finished our study on Kelly Minter's No Other Gods. The last study was on the Book of Ruth. I was reminded of my husband in my favourite verse from Ruth:
Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me." (Ruth 1: 16b-17 NIV)
Come and join Ruth for a cup of tea at Celebrate Friendship.

Hi Michelle,

I'm sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope it's nothing serious.
The book of Ruth is one of my favorite books of the Bible. That particular verse is written on our wedding invitation :)

Happy birthday to your husband.

Blessings to your family.

I agree that the road attacked you. Hope you are back on your feet soon!

I hope your ankle is feeling better soon. I love reading that scripture reference. We just watched a movie about her a few weeks ago. It was pretty good. A lady I used to work for played her mother (not that I remember her mother in the book of Ruth). Artistic license, I guess.

Sorry about the ankle! TLC that is what you need!

I love the Book of Ruth. She was an amazing woman!

Hi Michelle,

Will pray for your ankle and hope to hear you get well soon. Happy birthday to our DH. Am sure he appreciates all the effort you put in your plans for him.

Your verse from the book of Ruth is so rightly said. God is so amazing! It was definitely an assurance for you.

Take care and rest well.
