80 days/ 1,920 hours/ 115,200 minutes/ 6,912,000 seconds.
That is the amount of time my love has been gone. Those hours, minutes and seconds have passed us by with a huge place that cannot be filled. But, (and here comes the good part) more importantly, that is the amount of time my love has been face to face with the creator of the universe. The all powerful, all knowing, all loving God. I can hardly wrap my mind around that. That Zac right now is with Jesus.
I keep receiving wonderful e-mails, cards words of encouragement from so many people, it has been wonderful. I have been back to work at NewSpring, I am so happy to be there and to be back . The love and support I have at NewSpring is wonderfully overwhelming. I think back to all that has happened and I cannot imagine doing this anywhere else. What happened this past year was hard. We as a family struggled through the continual pain and ultimate death of our husband/father. It brings me joy to look back on that time and see how God has used NewSpring to blessing our family. Also, how they all have continued to shower love and goodness on my family, during this time of restoration. I love you all so much. Really and truly I do!
More importantly, the video. The awesome people at NewSpring, took the time and resources to make a beautiful video. A video that I hope you all have seen. A video detailing Zac’s faith in Christ and willingness for God to use him for His glory. A video from which I have had countless e-mails and letters stating that peoples lives are forever changed. To God be the glory!! I could shout this from the rooftops every time I hear another example of what God has done.
God has taken this thing(cancer) that satan intended to be hurtful, ugly and cruel. And you know what he did? He took that ugliness and made it beautiful. That is what He is all about. Death to life, pain to healing, cancer to glory and restoration! Only our God could do something so wonderful. I am so honored he is using my family and all of you…to fill up His kingdom.
I am so excited to see what God has next for us on this journey. I am also excited that, on the day when I too am looking face to face with Jesus, however many days, hours, minutes, or second from now that may be. I get to see all of the people that this ugly thing called cancer ,that was perfected and made beautiful by our Savior, brought from death to life.
