I Believe in Miracles: Do You?

In May of 2009, my husband was severely injured at the geothermal plant where he worked. He suffered second and third-degree burns over 73 percent of his body after falling into a hole filled with 140-degree brine water.Miracles began happening right before our eyes. He was able to climb out of the hole by himself, run the length of a football field to wash off, and ended up being flown to a trauma hospital where a world-renowned doctor would begin the tedious task of stapling cadaver tissue onto all of his burns. I created a web page on CaringBridge and began journaling as a means of communication with family and friends who lived four or more hours away. The response was overwhelming as you will attest to when you start turning the pages. There is no doubt in my mind that all the prayers and words of comfort played a big part in Mark’s healing process. I also believe the Holy Spirit comforted me and gave me the strength I needed to be there for my husband. ***Cover photo taken near the entrance of the Coso Operating Plant.
