This is my first Throwback post ever. I wanted to make it a good one. As I pondered what I’d like to remember and share, this moment popped into my mind immediately. This is one year to the day that Ian had his legs amputated, on his ampu-versary. And he is wearing his prosthetic legs in the water!!!

One of the fears I had when we realized he would have his legs amputated was that we would not go to the beach anymore. I just assumed he would have to scoot around on his knees, which would be no fun for him. Although I love the beach, it would be okay if we didn’t go anymore. I was grateful he was alive, so what if we didn’t go to the beach? There would be other fun places to go, right? Amazingly, God had other plans! We did, indeed, go to the beach! And what a blessing to be there on the year anniversary of the amputations. Only God could have orchestrated that!

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18

You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth. Psalm 71:20
