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.
