Wear It Wednesday

Happy Wednesday … Β it’s a good day!! Welcome to my world …. you can see from the today’s selfie that my “Wear It Wednesday” accessories is my glasses ..that’s because even in the chaos I can see my hope!!!
As I watch another new day unfold I sit here in the stillness and find that it is hard to believe that it’s been 6 months since our accident. Today I ask you to travel back to a chapter in, “My Story”…that I had no idea how it was going to turn out … this is from my daily journal…
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

This scripture is one that we all know and can quote without even cracking open our Bibles. But it’s also one that can challenge us to see beyond the chaos and see the hope.

Thursday evening as I stood on 81 s in VA picking glass out of my flip-flops I tried to see the future and the hope in the wreckage that was all around me… and friends, I’m not gonna lie it was a struggle.

I stood among the carnage of 30 vehicles, 8 tractor trailers, and 11 separate accidents…. and my world was right in the middle of someone else’s mess … someone who was texting and driving… someone else who failed to yield to emergency vehicles, and several other people who were breaking the law by driving faster than the posted 70 mph. Choices that each of these drivers made, decisions they made on their own behalf that ended up affecting many other people.

Yepper, and there I was…. trying to sing “it is well”, picking glass out of my shoes, picking up my belongings off the highway, all the while trying to take pictures of our car, tow dolly, and Boaz our beautiful RV. And in those moments hope and a future seemed far off. Oh I know that God is faithful and thank God that Joey and I are only slightly sore …so many first responders couldn’t believe we walked away. And honestly on the outside of me it seemed all is well but on the inside my mind and heart were being tore apart …. fear of the unknown felt like a heavy wet blanket that I couldn’t shake loose.

So each day since Thursday I found myself walking in the unknown … each day before my feet would hit the floor I would repent of any thoughts that were not God’s thoughts and I would say Holy Ghost guide this journey because I know you were given to me as my comforter!

As I sit here in my rental car talking to the tow company that is taking my rv to the auction house I find myself humming the words to Jeremiah 29:11.

I don’t know what tomorrow holds … I don’t know if we will get enough to pay off the rv… and even though I have no answers to my questions… I do know I am a child of God… and that He loves me beyond measure …. so, friends no matter what you are faced with … or how crazy life seems to get, know that HE has a plan … for hope and future !!!

There are those of you that have offered daily prayers … scriptures … encouraging words … and many of you I have no idea how you even heard about our wreck … but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart … there were days we felt alone and stuck and a text or email would come through and bless us … and offer hope!! God bless you … Friends are such a blessing!!

Last night as I sat on the hotel bed … still stuck in Dublin VA and did my bible journaling I prayed for each of you … calling you by name … calling you HIS ..calling you chosen …

I have HOPE and I EMBRACE it!!!!

Be blessed, be bold, and be you

Those were my thoughts 6 months ago … and as I set here looking at Samson, our 2nd RV… I can tell you that I know God has a thought and a plan… BUT sometimes we get stalled in a mess!! Today 6 months ago I lost Boaz, My Big Beautiful Boy… he was a dream come true and we had wonderful adventures .. and though it be just an RV it was MY RV. I thank God we were not hurt .. and I know it is well!! By the way, Samson means, “God was there the 2nd time”!
So, today is our last, “Wear it Wednesday“.. please leave me a comment … any comment will do!! Our March drawing will be held Thursday afternoon and the winner we be announced on Friday morning!!!

  3. Oh my! I had no idea you all went through that, I’m so sorry. But a HUGE thank you for posting that because we are in the middle of a situation that we cannot see the end result let alone how we will make it there. But GOD.. that’s about all I can cling to. Now I can go into work today with a smile on my face and a little less worry.
