Celebrating...3 years!

Three years ago today-
 screeching tires
bending metal
blood
screams
tears
questions

My heart raced and there were no answers. I asked over and over, "Where is my husband? Where is Cale?" Silence or redirection was all I was met with.

I sang part of a song that has more than once been my comfort by Rich Mullins. The line that repeated in my mind as I rode in the ambulance was,

hold me Jesus, cause I'm shaking like a leaf

Minutes passed.
Hours passed.
Days passed.
Months passed.
Years passed.

I'm daily amazed by who God is. With each morning comes new joy. Miracles unfold as time continues. We started in a hospital with tubes and beeps...

...and now we're living life. A sweet messy life.

I encourage you to watch all three videos as you watch the last three years unfold...






Happy 3 Year Alive Day Boy! Loving you makes me a better person.

    I so enjoyed the videos. I remember most of the pictures. That was kind of cool. I am sooo proud of both of you. Father has done many things in each of you. I am excited to see what He has for you in the future. I continue to trust Him for both of you. I love you, Marion

  2. Dear Kathleen--
    Thank you so much for sharing those videos with us. I watched them all and it truly is a miracle how far he has come and all God has done. (I had a favorite photo of the two of you I had not seen. It was on the second video at I think 4:17--it looked like maybe you were dancing together. You had a brown sweater on and it looked like he had a black shirt. I love that picture!!) Anyway, thank you so much for allowing us to have a glimpse of this journey you are on. It is a privilege to pray for you both. What a precious couple you are. Rejoicing with you in what God is doing and praying for comfort and strength for the hard times.
    Love in Christ,
    Emily J.

    Jeremiah 17:7-8
    New International Version (NIV)

    7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
    8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
    It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
    It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”

  4. Well, Emily, Like we said "Two great minds think alike!" Thank you for praying, like I said, THAT is what helps me stand. I have asked Father about getting to meet you some day (this side of The New Earth) we'll see what He does. I love you, Marion

  5. wow, hard to believe that it's been three years. Cale has come so far thanks to you Kathleen. My husband and I find inspiration in Cale's story. Sometimes he asks me out of the blue "how is Cale doing?" and it makes me smile. He has touched so many hearts, including ours. <3
