  1. Wow! That’s more than just a small bump in the road!!

    Thank you, though, for reminding the rest of us that God can see us through anything & everything in life no matter how traumatic!!

    You are an inspiration to us all!!

  2. Debbie-
    thank you for the wonderful reminder about trusting God in ALL things. Even when we can’t see a way through circumstances He can.
    And he has a reason.
    I went to your blog and read that things are well and that he provided!
    What an AWSOME God we serve!

  3. Debbie,

    This is beautiful. And I’m so thankful to the Lord for His gentle reminders of His awesome power to carry us through every trial that comes our way.

    Because we are in Christ, no matter what comes our way, we will rise…every time! 🙂

    I’ll be praying for you and sweet family.

  4. I cling…CLING…to the hope that circumstances I do NOT want are absolutely being used for my good, God’s glory, and somehow the advance of the gospel. I know your journey is not an easy one (or in some cases, one you’d choose), but isn’t it cool to know that God is at work in and through?


  5. It was so interesting for me to read this post today because my husband is going through a similar situation. He had surgery on his knee 2 years ago and within the last week, he wrecked it again and will need another surgery. While it’s not as serious as your husband’s situation, I appreciated reading your thoughts on the matter. Thank you for your encouragement! Praying for you and your family!
