In the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock.

This picture is from the chapel at John's hospital. I went in there one day just to think. I thought about how people survive things that happen to them. And I just thought, the only way we truly survive is the Power of God.

I talked to a Nun at the hospital yesterday. She wanted to ask me how the accident had affected my relationship with God. I told her I felt like it had made it stronger. I said we have the choice when life altering things happen to us to blame God, and turn from Him or we can embrace what has happened to us and get closer to God. I choose to get closer to God. ~nita~

Your God has made you stronger.
How is John doing anyway? How is the rehab going?
You are both still in my prayers every night.
Bless You my friend

i've been facing huge mountains in my life too. but i've chosen to hold on and stand on God's promises to me. in Hebrews 10:23 it says, "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful."

standing with you in prayer, nita.
