20 Years Ago ...

I almost died.  

While riding my bike to go swimming at a friends house, I was hit by a car while crossing the street.  

The road to recovery was so long and so frustrating.   

I didn't know why God let this happen to me.

But these words gave me peace both then and now:

"What is thy only comfort in life and death?  
That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, 
but belong unto my faithful Savior Jesus Christ."

Wow! You know what, I had completely forgotten about that. But now that you remind me I also remember that this is how we became friends. The first I heard of you was my dad telling me about this girl my age who was hit by a car and that I should write to her. And that was when we became pen pals!! Am I remembering correctly?

That's about right, Sarah! I think it was a couple years after my accident. =)

Dang it, we're not old enough to know each other for 18 years.
