Psalms 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
Words do not express how much I love my Savior. Some people have expressed what great faith we have. This is really not the case. I know my Savior loves us and my children far more than I can comprehend. When trials enter my life, I can either buck my head against the brick wall of the trial or I can stop and get on my knees asking the Lord for his strength and power to see me through. The latter just makes more sense to me. I need the Lord so much for my daily walk, I can not imagine life without a loving Savior who can comfort and heal.
We are slowing getting back into our new normal schedule. The children are doing well. We talk about the accident together as it comes up here and there. Serenity (3) and Stephen (5) speak about it a lot in normal conversation.
Last night, I heard a little whimpering around 3:00am, I followed the sound to Serenity’s room. I knelt by her bed and asked her what was wrong
“I dreamed we were upside down in the car.” She said.
After praying together, I climbed back into bed, again reminded how much all of us need to heal emotionally.
Melody and Carissa are doing well. Sometimes at night, I will come down and talk with them before they go to sleep. One evening, a couple of nights ago, I asked them if they were afraid to sleep. They were both very quiet, and then Carissa very quietly said,
‘”When I am afraid, I say Psalms 91, the verses that we learned.”
Then they quietly started quoting them together. As a mother, it is a comfort to know that my children have the Lord to hold on to. I did not know how the Lord was going to use these verses in my children’s life when we memorized them as a family a year a go.
Autumn hand is healing very nicely. It still has many open areas that will close eventually. There does not seem to be any infection. We go to the Orthopedic Institute in Columbus again on Thursday to evaluate how she is doing. She is having phantom pain in the fingers that she lost. This can be very frustrating and hard to deal with. She tells me that the fingers feel as if they are still there and sometimes they hurt.
I did break a couple ribs, which nothing can be done. They just need to heal. I go see the Orthopedic for my shoulder a week from Thursday to evaluate what needs to be done in the future.
Thank you for your prayers,
God reached down in love and rescued Cassandra from her sin at the age of 21: changing her life, purpose, and focus forever.
