Week 3: Easter

Hello Everyone,

My thoughts this week bring me to a time in my life when someone laid down their life for mine.  As you may know I received a heart transplant almost 12 years ago now.  It will be 12 years the end of May.  When I think back to that time, it is again impressed upon me that a young woman died so that I could live.  What happened to her was a terrible car accident.  It took her away from her family and friends but I lived because she died.

We never met.  She lived over 600 miles from where I live and yet I am totally indebted to her and her family.  My son was 8 years old when I came home from the hospital.  Without their sacrifice my son would not have his mother, but because of that accident there is a mother who no longer has her daughter.

I could never ever say thank you enough or I’m sorry enough…so I live.  I live to the fullest that I can in appreciation for every day that I have with my son, the rest of my family and friends.  Every day I wake up and Thank God for a new day.

There was someone else who died for me.  God sent his son, Jesus, to die so that I could live in heaven with him for all eternity.  Because Jesus died, paying the debt for my sins on the cross, I have a personal relationship with The Father.  I pray that you know Him in a personal way too.  If you don’t and you want to know more about this personal relationship, I would be very happy to tell you all about my Jesus.  He is more than just a name or a historical character.  He is my Savior and Lord.  He is the one who has brought me through transplant and because He lives, I LIVE!!!
