Thankful Thursday


Five years ago yesterday, our sixth daughter, Bekah, fell from our barn loft.  10 feet onto the concrete floor below.  At first we weren’t sure how far she had fallen, since no one had actually seen the fall.  Anna found her, and when she later showed us where Bekah landed, we realized what a miracle it was that our little girl was still with us!


She missed a short wall, rabbit cages, rabbit paraphenilia (buckets, scales, feed, etc.).  She still ended up with a severe head injury, which got her lifeflighted to a hospital an hour away.  I was just 12 weeks along with our now 4 year old son.  It was a frightening time, yet God’s peace and care were there.


The hospital was in the city our church meets in, so many of our church family were there to support us and help in any way they could. 


Bekah didn’t speak much at all for two days.  I wondered, since she had just turned 5, if there would be any long term damage that might show up as she got older. 


Today, I am thankful and very happy to say that she is fine!  No repercussions at all from her accident!  Praise God!


We also had no insurance at the time.  The Lord provided through the generosity of many, many of His people!  We were able to pay all the bills off within 2 months time!!!


So today, I am very thankful for Bekah, for her complete recovery, and for His provision!

    Thank God for His faithfulness! I have so much to be thankful for, and I am thanking and praising God with you for such a wonderful testimony to His mercy and power to keep us in His care! (Psalm 91 came to mind when I read your testimony)
