NatalieOct. 2, 2004, it was this day, 6 years ago, our lives were forever changed. Our family began a journey that I truly never thought I would survive for even 6 months, let alone 6 years! God is still good, even in my darkest days.

Malorie, just 13, our middle child, entered into Heaven. She was with friends and a friends mom was driving.

Let me share what I have learned;

1st- "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God...Isaiah 43:2-3

Thru the darkest days, when I felt I couldn't get up, God was with me every step.

2nd Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

I have no idea why The Lord gave this story to our family. It is not one I would wish on anyone. But.....I choose to TRUST HIM, God can see much further down the road, Heavenly Father, I trust you no matter where you lead, I will follow.

3rd- FORGIVE- Shew, this word, God, has been a challenge to say the least! The car accident that took Malorie from us was just that, an accident. No ones' fault. No one's fault. I have chosen not to hold a grudge, to forgive the driver, she never intended for the accident to happen and would change it in a heartbeat if she could I have no doubt. But....this has been a constant struggle daily for me to forgive. I have learned that forgiving someone is a choice I have to make everyday. "If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-16

4th- AND......I was reading in my Bible a few weeks ago and came upon this verse, IT'S KIND OF BECOME MY NEW FAVORITE VERSE; I don't remember seeing it before, I probably have, but God just now opened my eyes to it! Daniel 4:2 "It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that God has performed for me."

I just love this verse; I still miss Malorie so so much, it still hurts everyday, but, I know with God, I can do "hard", as long as my Heavenly Father is beside me!!!!

So....."It is my pleasure to tell you about the miraculous signs and wonders that MY God has performed for me." More to come......

God Bless You
