One Year

9:47 AM
One year ago today, I almost lost my boyfriend, now husband. He was involved in a serious car accident that scared us all so very badly. I wrote this blog just a few days after the crash, and I still get misty while reading it. It has been a roller coaster of a year since then. Not just with Creagon's health, but the extreme highs & lows of our relationship, and starting a completely new job at YWAM Orlando.

Looking back over this past year, I clearly see God's hand. Not just in saving Creagon's life, but in bringing ours closer together. Some couples split when things get hard, but this crash pushed us closer together and took our relationship deeper. It's no wonder we married so quickly! I've been with him through some of the worst and some of the best times of my life. And I wouldn't trade a day. I'm blessed to have him by my side. He's my best friend, my favorite person to be with, the one who makes me laugh, and completely adores me. This crash will always mark our relationship, but I don't think we'll be reminded of the negatives, but how God chose to bring out the positives. That's why I love my God, always working things for good for those who love Him [Rom 8:28].

Looking forward to the next year of mine & Creagon's life together, the ups and downs, and knowing whatever life throws at us, we always have each other.
