Everyday Life

A day remembered

Today is a day that I can recall from my memory moment by moment. 5 years ago today I remember what I was wearing, how my hair was fixed...who I talked to before chapel, who I walked to lunch with, who I ate lunch with...i remember skipping dinner in order to finish a project...I remember wandering why Meg was late to meet me after extension...and I remember how Rob Hall so kindly and soberly informed me that there had been an accident.
My heart dropped as I soon learned more details. My precious friend hurt badly, yet my Sovereign Creator was so gracious in giving such peace and joy in the midst of my deepest concern.
Mark was traveling that semester, so I was forced to cling to my Savior.
So yes, today was teary at moments but was an even greater encouragement to me as I reflected on God's perfect plan.

We remember that day too. It is amazing it's been 5 years. Seems like yesterday...you were at our apartment. It's amazing God chose for our son to be born four years after that day. I wasn't that close to Emily and Megan, but God used that whole experience to draw Stephen and I closer to Himself in so many ways.

I thought of you today and prayed for you. :)

I too remember that day as well. I did not realize this was the day before I read this though. How amazing to think that they have been in the presence of God for these past 5 years which compared to eternity is such a short amount of time. "When we been there 10,000 years...we've no less days to sing God's praise than when we first begun"

Emily's father started my church in NH and we knew her since she was a little little girl. Our hearts are greiving for the loss of her and Megan. I can't believe it's been 5 years already. God's ways are not are ways, and we can only trust in His sovereignty. Praying for all the family and friends.

Annie, I remember that day so vividly as well. God has used Meggo in my life so much.
I was thinking of you and everyone, and amazed also like Kristen said - that Meg has been in CHrist's presence for 5 years already!!!
