whooosh, that was fast.

A whole year goes by..
So fast. 
This time 365 days ago...
It was freezing cold outside.
But I was in a hopital bed,
puking my guts out.
"Recovering" from a doctor cutting into my brain,
having thirty-some staples put in my head,
getting three plates and screws put in there,
eating nothing,
and doing my best to bring joy to those around me.

I have to remember.
To remember to thank the good Lord every single day
for blessing me with life.
For blessing me with friends.
For blessing me with a wonderful family.
For a fiance.
A godly, wonderful man.
Who told me I was beautiful
(when I was most certainly not).
For blessing me with a praying people,
a people who prayed that I might be ok.
I must remember that God does things for a reason.
And that "all things work to the good of those who love him."
That his plans may make no sense at times,
but that he has something great in store,
and wants me to be a part of it.

Thank you, Jesus, for life and the opportunity to be a part of your awesome ministry here on this earth. 

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
Psalm 143:8-10
