God spared her life with her arms untouched, no lacerations to her face and her mind about her. With a weakened body she spent 2 months in ICU care followed by nursing home care. She since has been in the loving care of her family to slowly recover. With the pins in her knee finally removed and a complete hip replacement accomplished this past year was one of strength-building and learning to walk again...and she did! The internal injuries that required extensive surgery caused digestive and food intake issues which are now settling down.
How could this be? It is her constant dependence on and praises to our gracious God. Here are her recently written words...
A big shout out to the Doctors: This past year, I’ve seen the importance of Doctors up close and personal. They’ve made a profound difference in my life so I definitely pause and give them the honor due.
What happened: Eleven months ago, my awareness of a Doctor’s importance, sky rocketed. I was about ready to buckle up, start my car and drive away from the beach, when a drunk driver hit me, traveling at over 100 mph. It slammed into my car, ran it through a rod iron fence and over an embankment, totaling it. Upon impact I was knocked out. I woke the next day in the ICU, hanging on for life, Christians from all over the world praying for me.
A God given conglomerate of trained professionals were there for me at just the right time.
My faith in God: At a tender age of four, I received Jesus, kneeling in prayer before God with my Mom in our front room. Throughout my life, He continually calms any storm and this one, even though by far the biggest, has been no exception. I thank Him for every prayer and for His answers to those prayers. Not only was I covered in prayer but the Doctors also were covered in prayer. They are God’s special agents, ready and able, and I’m thankful for each one of my 7 or so specialists. For this and for prayers bringing me through, I give God the glory.
A BIG SHOUT OUT TO OUR GRACIOUS GOD!
And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory. For our present troubles ...(will) produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 2 Corinthians 4:16-17
