Today the Lord has given me. I am writing to apologize first and foremost for not blogging in over a year. I have an awesome testimony about the past year. January 30, 2014 I had a heart attack and a cardiac arrest here at home. After arriving at the hospital I was given a 4% chance of leaving the hospital alive. If I did manage to survive I would be brain damaged because of lack of oxygen to my brain for such a long time. I serve a mighty God that decided not only would I survive but I would not be brain damaged. Therefore I am able to write to you today. The Lord is continuing to heal me in so many ways. Sometimes our heart can be broken and not only physically. Sometimes we need healing down in our soul. I have always tried to appreciate what the Lord has given and done for me but sometimes you just don't see the big picture until you go through a tragedy. There are so many small things that we take for granted that we don't stop to realize. We get into a routine everyday and if for some reason that routine is interrupted it becomes a serious problem, so we think. I think that God likes to interrupt our routine so we remember what is important. Its not how hard we work, what we have, where we take a vacation, or who we associate with. It's much deeper than that. Its meditating and knowing who we are in Christ. It's how much he loves us and shows us every day in the smallest of ways and by that how we should love others. Those are the things we tend to overlook. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God". That's what I think he wanted me to do is to be still. My life has been changed over this past year. I'm not able to do the things right now that I used to but that's ok because I had to learn to be still and through all of this there are others that he wanted to touch with his love. Seasons change, new colors, new smells in the air, new reflections of who we are. So when you wake up in the morning thank the Lord for waking you, when you eat thank the Lord for feeding you and when you take a look around thank the Lord for what's he's given you. Love somebody the way he loves you. Until we talk again may God Bless You!
