I Am Blessed!

As I woke up very early this morning to see my honey of to work, I just couldn't go back to sleep, and I began to think about how truly blessed I am. I was thinking about all the recent sorrow with the deaths of so many, and I began to think of how each one must feel at this time, and how I would feel if I were in the same situation.

Just last week Sean was working over on the coast at his new job. He was working on some wiring down on the ground, when he heard a loud noise above him. He looked up and stepped back only to see this large piece of machinery falling towards him. He was able to get out of the way, but it landed exactly where he had been standing. I know that is was just through God's great protection that he is still alive today.

I am so thankful for my husband, and the life we have together. It is just so nice to have someone to help you get through things and to be there for you day in and day out. At times I wonder how can they do it? How can others face the death of their companion? The person who has been there for them all these years, and who has helped them through all the hard times. How can they get through it when they are no longer there to help them through what would seem to be the hardest time of all. I guess it is just through the mercy of God, and through prayer.

I feel blessed to have the companion I have. For God's great mercy, and kindness to me. That his life was spared, not only last week but in many times past. I know things could be a lot different. I just don't want to take things for granted. God has been so good to me. I have six beautiful children, and a loving husband who has the same desire to serve the Lord. I truly am blessed!

Your so right, we are very blessed to still have our companions. God is the only reason for this. And I know God is the only way someone can deal with a loss. Thank God Shawn got out of the way. He had angels watching over him.

I've been thinking the same type of thoughts. We are very blessed. I'd like to remember to be thankful for all these things.

It was astounding cause he doesn't really seem like it in person. Anyway beautiful thoughts, and good luck cause Sean is gonna be UUUUGGGGLLLYYYY....JK.....LOL

Sis. Marisela, we just got back from camping and I got caught up on your posts. Very beautiful, I thought. I'm glad you had so many brethren at Church Sunday, I'm glad you guys have settled into the school routine (don't worry about getting behind in homeschool), and I am very happy Bro. Sean's life was spared. I really miss you guys, and every time I read your blog, I miss you more. I'm glad we can still keep in some contact, though. How were Alyssa and Shelbi's reports on Esther and Mordecai? Miss ya' all!
