On Thursday afternoon, our lives were jolted when our only daughter Sarah had a horrible (freak) bicycle accident. Because she was alone, and has a concussion and memory loss, we probably will never know exactly what happened.
You can click here to read an update since this post.
Four days later, after two emergency rooms, an ambulance ride, a trauma team and a 2 hour surgery, she’s on her way to recovery. She has broken bones in her face, bone grafts, lots of stitches, lost teeth, and more tears than I thought possible, but she is alive and for that, we give all glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Only by the grace of God, Sarah is already smiling again and is the most beautiful girl in the world (inside and out).
In time, all of her injuries will heal and she will be better than ever. And no matter what – we’re choosing to glorify God and believe that He has a purpose for her pain.
I’m telling you all of this because I want you all to know that Jesus loves you and He cares for all of us – even more than I care for my sweet daughter (which I can barely fathom). If you don’t know that, please reach out and let me tell you about Him.
And please never take your time for granted here on earth – love on your people, focus on what really matters. Life is just a vapor (paraphrase James 4:14)… realizing how quickly it can vanish changes perspective like nothing else can.
Thank you all for always following along on my sweet, cakey adventures – and sharing little bits of life with me. Please keep my Sarah in your prayers over the next few months. As a teenage girl, the emotional side of this might be as difficult as the physical side (if not moreso) and we are sure there will be many, many more tears before our journey to healing is complete.
I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ~ Psalms 18:1-2
As for Rose Bakes, the blog may or may not look all that different over the next few weeks/months. I’m going to give myself grace and not feel a lot of pressure to stay on any kind of publishing schedule. You will see at least one sponsored post in the next couple of days (that’d I’d already committed to and worked on), but after that, I’m not sure.
Since writing sometimes relaxes me, I may be able to keep up with no problem at all. I’m just going to take it day by day and see how things go.
Thanks so much for reading here and as always, happy caking!
