Today marks three years since Florence’s diagnosis.
Three years since our world was shaken.
Shaken – not broken. Never broken. Never.
Our life as we knew it fell to pieces, but as always our faithful Lord drew us close to Him. He comforted and provided when medical bills seemed (seem) insurmountable. He showed His love for us in immeasurable ways, and brought Mark and me closer than ever, to each other and to Him. It is only because of His love and His provision and His grace that we can walk this road.
You cannot be broken by God’s plan, as long as you give everything up to Him. Everything. Even those things – especially those things – which are closest to your heart. Your job. Your home. Your finances. Your children. You must relinquish that desire for control and simply realize that your story has already been written by the Author of the world. Rest safely in the knowledge that there is no better author for your life’s story than the One who created you!
Our Florence is alive for a purpose – a purpose that her Creator specifically designed and put into motion. He breathed life into her for incredible reasons, bigger than anything we can imagine!
We love you, Florence!
