Gabrielle Giffords Destroyed to Abundant Life

Looking back on 2011 we remember Gabby Giffords' story, one that begins with destruction from a single gun shot in a Safeway parking lot in Tulsa, AZ. To a story of love and strength born from a difficult journey of rehabilitation.   Her husband, Astronaut Mark Kelly, stood by her side consistently pouring out encouragement to lift up his wife and love to carry her through tough trials.  In Mark’s love for Gabby we see scripture come to life, "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her," Ephesians 5:25.  God also tells us, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10.  We have learned that with love we gain strength to overcome difficult situations together.

Absolutely an amazing story as we look back on 2011.  What was something that happened in your life in 2011 that has prepared you for this coming new year?  Share with us here or on our Facebook Page.

Just a correction, it is Tucson Arizona, not Tulsa. Where the Safeway is.

I love listening to Klove. My husband and recently purchased my father-in-law's place from sisters and brother. While Nick out of town driveing truck, I've been trying to get some inside painting done. Listening to Klove, while I'm working, makes the painting go so much quicker and easier.
