It was a very early morning FIVE years ago on
July 25, 2010, that I got the call about
Travis and his accident. These pictures are what I
saw as a nurse held me while I crumbled
to the ground. It's NO exaggeration when I
say that we were given absolutely no hope.
It was horrific.
Those first weeks, I clung to 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
(it's still hanging on my dresser mirror from that week).
There was something about,
"Therefore we do not lose heart..."
It was like God speaking to me in the
depths of my pain for Travis, Lynna, Scott,
Hunter, my parents, my sweet children
watching all of this and myself.
I thought there was no way we could survive this.
In one instance, our lives were changed forever.
Not a day since July 25, 2010,
has been the same for us.
Although our hearts have broken time
and time and time again,
it was by the grace of God that we didn't lose heart.
❤ God chose to perform a miracle and
let Travis live. And five years later,
because of your prayers and God's divine mercy,
and through the will power of the most
determined person I know and two parents
who put everything else in their lives aside....
this second picture is Travis at my
house in July, five years after his accident.
While Trav's journey feels and
has felt FAR from "light and momentary"
(as the verse states)
and it's SO hard to understand
WHY life is so difficult for him
and so many others, we CaN'T lose heart or SIGHT
of what awaits us if we believe!
🙌We have to CLiNG to that.
Today, five years later, I'm so thankful
that I also get to cling to our
Superman TRaViS -
to hug him, see him smile, laugh with him,
and be amazed by him.
Thank you for your prayers and
support AND continued prayers.
His journey is not over by any means....
Travis, I love you more
than you could imagine.
Always have, Always will.
