Today is one of those days…
That blows your mind with its significance. This morning we went to my 36-week ultrasound. We got to see our sweet baby Ella and were told that she is plump and healthy and soon-coming our way! I don’t think I’ll ever take for granted how amazing the miracle of birth is. To see that there is a living, breathing baby inside of me? I still can hardly believe it! Yes, I’ve done this before, but each time it is still miraculous. Today was a day of joy and celebration and good news.
But on this very same day 9 years ago, I was getting much different news. It was June 24, 2005 when I got the call diagnosing me with cancer. It was a chilling, surreal moment. I don’t think I will ever be able to forget all I felt as I received that call. I know exactly where I was, who I was with, and what went through my mind as the doctor’s words resonated throughout my understanding.
That’s quite a dichotomy of events all taking place on the same date. And what’s the point of noticing this? To show that life is just a series of seasons. God can restore your worst day and replace it with a day of beauty and joy. He’s done it for me and I believe the same for you.
