I almost forgot heart day this year. I guess that time is healing that memory. It's a memory that will still bring tears to my eyes. God used that time to teach me so much!
4 years ago on April 16, Eliana had open-heart surgery. Four years ago, I had to hand her over and trust God. He called me to trust Him and to know that He was good - regardless of the outcome of the surgery. That may sound simple, but it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I wrestled with God until I could fully trust Him. And fully know that He is good.
What a healing He did in her heart. The surprise was the healing He did in mine. I hadn't realized that I needed repair. I certainly wouldn't have chosen the path He chose for me. In fact, I embarked on the path kicking and screaming. I wish I had known then what I know now. I realize though that to know what I know now - I had to go through all of that. The tears. The fears. The unknown.
So four years later, all that remains of that day is a scar ... and a lot of memories.
With all of the business of the play on the same day, I forgot. But one of my precious friends didn't. She walked through the trials with me then and celebrates with me now! Thank you Rebecca! I love you dear friend and your precious heart!
She came over after the play bearing these adorable (and yummy) creations!
Praying you find much to be thankful for today!
