                    Always my favorite verse

I have several that are favorites but this one is special.  Due to circumstances, when I was in high school.  I ended up living with my sisters in-laws my senior year. 
Her mother in law was a wonderful christian lady, who taught me about Christ and what being a christian is all about.
Her gift to me upon my graduation, was a bible and on the front page--"In all thy ways acknowledge the Lord and he will direct your path." 
That verse gave me so much comfort, knowing as I headed out to the unknown that all will be well, as long as I turn to God.
Now, once again, I head into the unknown.  I know our life will never be the same.  

Thank you all for your visits, your wonderful comments, that really help me feel as though I am not alone.  
I will always look for the pot of gold at the end of the rain bow and know as Steve gets better and stronger I also will get better and stronger.

 Monday, my sweet hubby had a stroke.  He was in the kitchen starting to bake a cake.  I was in another room but heard noises that just were so wrong, so I went to investigate and saw him hanging on to the kitchen sink about to fall.  
There was nothing I could do but grab him and help make the fall a little softer.  I called 911 and also called out son that works near by.  Most of the following all becomes a blur. They did fly Steve to Seattle trauma center one of the best places to be.
As of now, he is recovering.  It will be slow, and so far he is not able to come to this area.  We live three hours away from Seattle and over a snow covered pass.  I did stay with him for a couple of days but for both of us, it was better I come home.

 It was a snow covered world when I woke this morning. I have never been so happy about snow then I am today, for some reason it seems to be a calming feature.  So quiet and calming.

I am going to try to write often, just to help me get though this.  I am looking forward to being able to post on your blogs but for right now, I try to read and nothing is registering.
