30 Day Photo Challenge ~Day 4 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.

Something you wish you could forget... this one was hard..  Because I believe that even when things come into your life that are difficult, there is a reason for everything.  And hopefully in the process of going through or dealing with whatever difficult thing that become a better person in the process.  Even in tragedy, I can look back and see where God made something good come from it.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 (NASB)

So sad things that have changed me as a person?
Losing my Grandma... Sept 10, 2010
[you will prob see her pop up on this list a lot]

 Losing Jesse, my grandfather Jan 17 2001
Losing Jack [Sept 19, 2010] and Maxie [Dec 16, 2010]

Getting bit in the face by the dog we were pondering adopting changed so many things that you would never think and we totally saw God's timing and provision in that instant.

Losing our first baby at 11 weeks on Nov. 1, 2006.  Life changing.

Though I personally didn't know anyone at the twin towers, it was a turning point for me.
 I lost my job at a company that mainly dealt with middle east travel to the Holy Land.

I suppose the list could go & on and this list was in no particular order.
So, though things are sometimes painful, hopefully, we learn from them and don't forget but remember how God brought us through!

To end on something a little more light...I guess I wouldn't mind forgetting this hairstyle...
not actually me but just about...

I bet you really did have that hairstyle! Every NKOTB fan did. :)

I read somewhere recently that God does work things out in the end and if you don't think things have worked out, then it must not be the end.
