What's Your Story?
A year ago my world was given what some might call the start of a very bad storm. Not just my world but my families and especially my sister's world.
A year ago life was shaken. I remember getting the call that my sister was loosing all of her blood. She should have died. After delivering two healthy little babies for another family her life was on the line. I remember having her boys staying with us for the night which ended up for the whole week and then off and on for the whole month following. Memories come and go but crying with the possibility of loosing a family member is tough and an experience I hadn't ever dealt with. My sister's story was just beginning although it began before she was born. ( You can read my view on my sister's story in my earlier blogs. And continue with the Sister tab on the right. Even watch a video it's all on here).
So what's your Story? I pray that it's in God's will that my story be one that brings Glory to Him. God chose my family to go through what we did a year ago all for His Glory. Some might not understand or some might disagree, but I have full confidence in my Savior and this is part of my families story that could have shaken us to the ground but our feet were planted in knowing God causes all.
My family four times had to give Tiff up. Deep down coming to the conclusion God was calling her home. We prayed that it was in God's will to keep her with us although knowing ultimately Heaven is by far a better home.
My story? Well, really it's God's story! God gives and God takes away. Everything that God has given me is God's. What will I do with my gifts from God? Tell others and share my gifts. Thank God for all my gifts. Remembering that gifts can even come through heart ache.
Today a year ago marks the start of memories that won't ever fade. Today a year ago marks the start of two beautiful and created lives that God brought into this world. Today a year ago and now forever marks a more driven passion to share a story of God's Glory. What a blessing God hand picked my family to go through this. It's not easy at times and I know for my sister and her family it's even harder. Satan continues to attach. Satan knows he can't ever have us but he would like to think he can bring us down. Well, our Savior is stronger and what a comfort to know our Savior holds His children in His hands. We may not understand all the questions we have in our present lives, but holding on to our Creator and knowing He ultimately has a plan and works everything out for His Glory gives us comfort.
