This photograph was taken at the Syracuse Airport the day our family met the Governor. I'll be honest, not sure why, but we did. I think we (Heidi's family) gave him certificate of thanks for helping with the search for Heidi Allen, and he gave my parents a certificate of some sort for their strength while they search for their missing child.
I apologize for not remembering the details about why we were there, but one thing I know, I was surrounded by family. Mom, aunts, uncles, and cousins waited together, shook hands, and posed for pictures with the governor. While waiting, my aunt took this picture of me. When I first saw this picture, I thought, "I look better than I felt."
I'm thankful God used one child to remind me of how much He loves me. I was never alone even though I felt that way. Today, Heidi is still missing and with upcoming court hearings in the future, some days are overwhelming BUT this time, I know, 100%, I'm never alone. God is always right here with me. I'm completely His...no more loneliness or running away from Him. Planting my heart, hope, and faith in God because He is All-Knowing, Ever-Present, and All-Powerful. Thank goodness...if you feel alone, close your eyes and say "Hello", God is with you, just waiting to hold you in His arms. We are never alone, even when we choose to be, God's right there by our side in case we call to Him.
Any temptation you face will be nothing new. But God is faithful,
and He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can handle.
But He always provides a way of escape
so that you will be able to endure and keep moving forward."
