A year ago today our lives came to a sudden stop... breifly.
A year ago today we were faced with fear and an uncertain future.
A year ago today we gripped tight to Gods hand and bowed to His decision.
A year ago today was just another begining, another ending, another way for God to prove Himself, again, in our lives.
A year ago today... has it already been a year? 365 days since my rude awakening? Since the 911 call... since the "news"?
I was rereading some of my past posts a few days ago. I skimmed last April. Then I read about my Easter in 2009... how soon I forget. It was a wonderful and terrible day all in one. I remember sitting silently by Andy's bedside reading the crucifixtion story. I remember praying. I remember praising Jesus for small victories. I remember... although I had already forgotten. I am so glad I wrote it down. Because by reading it again...I remember.
I said a thankful prayer to God this Easter that I was able to go to church, that I was able to dress my son for the special day...that my husband was driving us. I thanked God for His wonderful provision and blessing.
On Saturday it will be one year from Andy's surgery. As well as my parents 34th wedding anniversary. I am sure they prefer to celebrate their special day in a nice resuraunt this year and not in a hospital... and this year I think we can comply with that preference.
As I read through my life last April I was struck by a thought. As crazy and chaotic as it was...it was a good month. Maybe not by our human stand point, or by my stress level at the time. But reading what I had written, about what God was teaching me, about how He was manifesting Himself in our lives... If you measure by that, last April was awesome! That being said, I do not really want to relive that particular trial... or any other one, but I do hope that 2010 contains as much of Him as last April....

And then God stepped in.
