So do you ever have one of those days where you’re just feeling kind of blah and then something just comes along to make you smile? Well today was one of those days for me. I was checking my email, and I had this email from Shutterfly showing me a memory from 7 years ago of a picture I had uploaded. This is the picture.
I don’t have social media, so I don’t get these random memories pop up all the time. Shutterfly will send emails sometimes of your photos from a year ago or 2 years ago or 5 years ago etc. But lately it’s all been memories from 7 years ago. Like this one too.
I feel like God is telling me something by me seeing these repeated memories from 7 years ago. Biblically the number 7 means completeness. I finally shared my testimony a few weeks ago at our church, and it’s been 7 years since I gave my life back to God. My testimony is one of Jesus’s love, forgiveness, and restoration in my life. Jesus turned my life around, and I wanted to become the best wife and mother to my husband and my little boy. I think by me seeing these pictures lately, I can look at them, and I have finally forgiven myself for what happened during this time.
I also look at these pictures, and I see my sweet and happy baby Carter. I can’t believe 7 years have already gone by. I never would have imagined the path my life was about to take a few years after these pictures were taken, but I’m so thankful I made Jesus my foundation and my rock 7 years ago to get me through this journey. I don’t think I would have survived without Him. This journey has strengthened my faith, and I have so much love for others. All the progress that Carter has made gives me the faith and the hope to keep believing for more.
