One Year Later.

VCP_9745  It has been a little over a year since I have last written. I honestly do not know where to begin. God has done so much in this short period, I am truly amazed. 

My husband was released from jail in May of last year. All together, serving about 7 months when his sentence was supposed to be 5 to 15 years. That alone is such an enormous miracle! Till this day I cant believe just how much mercy God has poured out into our lives. Two months before he was out, I gave birth to our second daughter, Ava Katherine. She came a bit early, at 36 weeks, via an emergency c section due to her being in breech. She was and is perfect, now being over a year old, running around causing trouble with her older sister.

My husband is doing so much better. So much. I was so happy to have him back in our lives, to have him near me again. I cant imagine what single mothers have to endure, and I pray to God I am never at that point because it would be unbearable.

But here we are, over a year later. Doing so well. God healed my husband, He set him free. He is no longer held down by that addiction. Its gotta be one of the best feelings ever. Not having to worry about him overdosing, or not being able to rely on him. Having a healthy spouse is so important, more important than I ever thought.

I cant say that everything is back to perfect in our lives. Its not. And that is ok with me. What is important is that my husband is restored and that our family and relationship is restored. I can fully rely on my husband, I can depend on him. And I cant say enough just how good that feels.

We are still rebuilding our lives, and we have quite a way to go. But I truly believe that God will continue to bless us and will continue to work miracles in our lives. We have a long way to go but I have my partner in life back by my side.

God has been truly amazing. I cannot say it enough. He is big enough. He is strong enough. He is caring enough. When he feel like we have nothing, we can without a doubt believe that we still have Him.
