This is the most difficult journey I have ever had to walk. But what God is doing with such a terrible situation is so incredible and beautiful. It helps me get through each day. Preston often quoted the verse, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose" - Romans 8:28
And through the MANY lives that have been touched by Preston and our situation, God's purpose is so evident. He wants to change lives! Yours and mine. I am not God and do not know the full extent of what his purpose is, but there is no doubt that part of his plan is to make himself known. That makes me super excited because I have a relationship with Him and I know how amazing and fulfilling it is so of course I want everyone to experience the same lasting joy and hope I and many others have. Wouldn't it be selfish and ridiculous of me if I had the cure to cancer but I was too scared or nervous to share it with someone who was dying from the disease? Well it is too selfish of me to let you die and not to share Jesus Christ with you. If you want to look more into this check out, www.needgod.com
Someone shared this verse with me that is entirely fitting, "Now I want you to know brothers that what has happened to me has really served to advance the Gospel" - Philippians 1:12 Paul wrote this when he was chained in prison. Terrible circumstance, but the ultimate and perfect good came from it. I have really crazy circumstances, but if the gospel is being shared then it is worth it.
THANKYOU SO SO SO MUCH to everyone who has loved and supported us!! From your comments, to your emails, texts, phone calls, hugs and tasty meals. What a legacy Jacob and baby #2 will be able to look back on, not just that their father was an amazing man, but also that people loved and supported us in our biggest moment of need.
