My 50th birthday was going to be in Maui, Hawaii or at a minimum some place dry and warm as I am a planner, I had been thinking about this big milestone birthday since I turned forty. Sadly just weeks before my 50th birthday I found myself fighting for my life in Harborview hospital, Seattle, WA intensive care. My 50th birthday sucked and was horrific I will never ever forget my 50th birthday.
Just weeks before the trauma hit with the semi truck I was planning a huge surprise 50th birthday party for my husband. I had a fun party space with old cars, motorcycles, Elvis stuff, music, catering planned out and I was going to have a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle sitting in the party spot with his name on it. I had called many of our life time friends and family and it was to be a huge deal. Just a few weeks before the accident GOD placed a heavy weight on my heart to not do the party cancel it, I have learned to listen to the nudges of Jesus so I cancelled the party. Received all my money back and took my husband to pick out his Harley many months before his big 50th b-day, it was indeed the right thing to do as GOD knew what was coming and I did not. I took my husband to get his Harley just weeks before the semi truck accident and three months before his birthday, chilling how GOD works. GOD is amazing.
Interesting thing; when I think back to this event I would pray and GOD placed a heavy burden of pain and suffering over my body, “I felt like my husband was weeping, crying and in great sadness.” I thought something horrific was going to happen within his family as his parents are aging, this sixth sense I was feeling was all about me. I did not know it was me that would be the cause of my husbands tears, loss and stress but this I can share I knew something horrific was going to happen and I knew he would need a great escape. A Harley was something he had wanted since he was a young boy just like I had wanted a horse since I was a young girl. Since my husband made my dreams come true I wanted to make his dreams come true.
What if I was too busy to not pray and get quiet every day? GOD could have never ever given me the sixth sense I needed to take care of my husband. Remember to always take time for GOD, make time for GOD as he knows everything that is best for his children. GOD is amazing.
