“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
At the beginning of 2020 I was perfectly content with all the blessing in my life. I was married to the love of my life and we were raising our two young daughters in our own paradise on a ranch in New Mexico. Our young family was just starting out and I was thankful everyday for our lives together and the hope I had for our future. I never could have imagined that my world would come crashing down in early February when my husband, Taylor, was killed in an accident while working on the ranch. During our years together I felt that I had blossomed into my roles as a ranch wife and mother. In the blink of an eye and without warning I took on another role (one that nobody ever wants) when I became a widow at 32.
Even in the midst of this tragedy, I know God’s hand is faithful, carrying and guiding me through my darkest valley, constant as He always has been. I know that God is good and He will continue to use Taylor to bring about good in this world. As I began to work through my grief, I knew early on that I had been called to share my faith. Even though I am in the process of rebounding from one of the biggest blows life can throw your way, I would like to share with you the answers to the question I ask myself every night: Why am I so blessed?
