No Lapses in His Goodness, Part II

Thanks for all your kind remarks on my previous post. In answer to your question, yes, the dogs were destroyed by the (very reluctant) owners. I had planned to put some great thoughts down in here regarding all the life lessons one can gain by being mauled by an insane animal ;o) However, at the moment, I'm doing good just to keep my head above water here at home. In fact, reminiscing about and looking at pictures of what happened four years ago has just managed to weigh me down during a time of already heavy stress. SO! I'm removing the offending images, and I'll get back to this topic during a more cheery phase of life. Sorry to all waiting with bated breath for my words of wisdom ;o) So I guess I will give a SHORT summary...

The title of this blog is the life lesson that I really learned during that time: There are no lapses in the goodness of God~ EVER! What happened today was the best thing the Father could have allowed for this day. Including the wet bed right after I put on the freshly laundered sheets. From the trivial to the traumatic, God is out to use my trials to conform me to the image of His Son.

Amen, Charity. I needed the reminder today AGAIN. God is good....all the time. All the time....God is good. Even when it doesn't feel like it.

We love ya'll.

So thankful you survived this horrible event...I can't imagine how scary this must have been...
Of course I remember hearing about this, but glad you reminded us...and I'm sure writing about it has been helpful to some degree. As someone irrationally afraid of dogs already, reading this has made me look around even more when I'm outside!! Blessings and Continued Healing!

Oh man, you took down the pictures, and I had just "sent" someone to look at them that knows you! Oh well, if you post them again let me know. Did someone give you a hard time about them?

I'm so glad you survived that horrible attack and that I've met you through the blog world, your posts about being a Mom always brighten my day and give me a good laugh.

Charity, I think I stumbled across your blog while browsing Marianne's (former GBS neighbor), and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your writing style. I love to be amused, and you accomplish that well. Blessings on your family.

Blessings to you, my friend. It is indeed a blessing and a comfort to remember that our God is soveriegn and able to bring good things from bad. His ability to come alongside us during life's "downers" makes all the difference in the world. May the healing continue!

I can't believe it's been four years! It was almost exactly the same time we moved to Alabama/Mississippi. I just read the lawyer's report. Mercy. There are no words.

Sad that we're not there for Alabama camp! Hope you're having a good summer.

Hey Charity. It was good to see you at last week at camp. I read your story about the dog attack and though I had heard it before-wow the impact it makes when you read it...Your attitude and faith encourage me.
