My sister Debbie has been best friends with Susan her whole life. A few days ago Susan and her husband Donnie were in a car accident. They were coming home from an appointment at Vanderbilt (Susan recently had foot surgery), they stopped and had a nice dinner together, then on the way home, about a mile from their house, they hit ice and were slammed into a tree. Susan wasn't injured but Donnie was critically injured. Yesterday, he had a brain hemorrhage and died.
Susan and Donnie were very much in love and so happy together.
Please pray for Susan and for Donnie's family. This is a very hard time for them. Please pray for the people who received Donnie's organs, may they now be well.
It really gave me a reality check. We can be here one minute and gone the next. Each day is a gift. I want to use everyday to show love to others.
Also, please pray for my sister and her husband, Chuck. Chuck has been asked to do the funeral and it is going to be hard for him.
Praise God for the promise of being reunited with our loved ones!
Life is such a learning experience. I'm so glad God is so gentle in teaching me.
All of my life I have gone through life like a bull in a china store. I was labeled that way as a kid, adhd, headstrong. My zodiac sign is the ram so I just figured I was destined to be this way. There are several issues with this because when you ram your head into everything head first, sometimes, your head gets stuck in the drywall. For years, I have thought this is just who I am and I am totally NOT able to change it. So, I put up prison walls around myself with this issue. I convinced myself that I am impulsive, headstrong, unorganized, flaky....but the good qualities, artistic, visionary, empathetic, intuitive, funny...were good enough to balance out the other ones.
FINALLY, after years of thinking this way, I am free of the label. There is no reason why I have to live with bars....I can learn to stop and think, I can learn to not go headfirst into a wall without thinking, I can learn to keep my mouth shut until I have thought about my answer. I CAN do these things. There is no bar that says "christy has to be impulsive and unorganized".
There is are no more prison bars around my brain. I am FREE. Thank you God!
I am a mom of 3 girls and a wife to Kyle! I want to help others learn about themselves by sharing myself and my life. I would love to encourage others, to help them be creative and use the gifts God has given them. If I can do this, I am happy!

Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past stop planning the future stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel stop deciding with our mind what we want out heart to feel sometimes we have to go with whatever happens happens
