100 DAYS!!!!??’????’??....... 100 days ago my whole world came to a crashing stop..
LETS TALK REAL FOR A MOMENT..... it became full of drs, nurses and surgeries, wires,drains,machines,questions (lots of questions)....and prayers, lots and lots of prayers... people telling me he isnt going to make it and trying wrap my head around what the drs were saying and then watching God perform his healing miracles... and praying some more... all the while leaning on others to help with everyday life from the dogs and cleaning the house to the kids and school and band concerts to all the trips to Jacksonville and back, all while pregnant and then having a baby amongst all of this and then sending my husband back off to rehab bc he only got a pass home....
BUT......??’????’?? HE SURVIVED!!!!!??’’????"
my husband has beaten the odds and has proven that God is real. That God CAN and DOES love us and protect us. God never said there wouldnt be trials and tribulations he just promised to never leave us.... NO MATTER WHAT!!!
The devil tried to come in and take away and destroy our whole lives... did we crack, yup... did we need to seek guidance, yup.... did we have to rely on each other to get through it, yup.... to the devil and that evil person who tried to destroy us...... look who won... look where you are!!!
BUT......??’????’?? MY GOD healed those cracks, MY GOD was there when we needed him, MY GOD created a stronger family between us....
MY GOD IS BIGGER THAN THE DEVIL!!!!
TO ALL OF THOSE THAT HELPED, PRAYED, STEPPED UP, TOOK OVER BC I NEEDED HELP..... we love you and we are eternally grateful for everything everyone has done for us. We could never ever thank you enough or begin to repay you for your love and kindness.... please know that we love our family (both blue and non) and community..we may not have won the war against the blue line, however WE WON A BATTLE!!!??’????’?????"??’’???‘????
