Wendy: God is the God who stays! Thank you, Matthew West, for that song. My husband David became a quadriplegic in 2003—a week before Christmas. He had been working for a different building contractor that fateful day. He was on a homemade scaffold and whoever put it together did not use enough screws. It came apart and David fell 15 feet into an icy and snow covered pile of rock. The other person fell on top of him. David broke his back, neck, sternum, ribs, both hands, had a punctured and collapsed lung. He was in trouble.
After surgery at midnight, we faced the issue head on. God was with both of us and He has never left us. It has been an uphill battle, but He has worked miracles in so many different ways. We saw and felt God in those early days and He continues to do the same today. We were self-employed and owned a small housekeeping resort, which we rented in the summer months…we could not do that anymore. But after 4 years in the court system, we won our Workmen’s Comp claim and have been taken care of very well. We also owned a duplex, which we tried to sell for two years. It sold the month after his injury and we needed that money over the next year. Our church was a huge help and continues to give us emotional support and prayer!
God has provided! He continues to give us all that we need…He Stays! We could not do this life without Him.
