Cross Point Videos

by jessicaturner on April 28, 2008

As I mentioned last night, the Smiths were interview by my church for its Plan B series, which is all about what you do when the unexpected happens. The retelling of their story is powerful. The total video is around 22 minutes, but it is worth taking the time to watch it in its entirety. You will be impacted.

Thanks for sharing this, Jessica. The Smith family, as well as you have been in my prayers. Praise the Lord for their amazing testimony through all of this. May God continue to be glorified.
Angie hit it on the nail when she said that that there is no Plan B. God knew exactly how many breaths little Audrey would take and nothing was a surprise to him. Yes, we know He could have healed her, but His perfect plan was something different. We must praise His name.
Thanks again for sharing and for being such a faithful friend.

Thank you for sharing this video. The Smith family has been in my prayers for a few months now. Angie and Audrey have touched so many lives, mine included. And it is so true, God knew every little detail of what was going to happen. Praise His name. May God bless you and the Smith family. Audrey will not be forgotten. Not ever.
She was such a beautiful baby! May Audrey’s testimony and the testimony of the Smith’s continue to touch the lives of people around the world.

This truly is a gift as was Audrey to the world. I thank you and Angie for sharing everything that you have. It has changed my faith for the better and for that I am so grateful! You’re all in my prayers.

Thanks for sharing this Jessica. It still brings me to tears although I have followed their story since the beginning. You can’t help but see God’s hand on this family throughout this time.

I’m speechless.

I sobbed.

I’m in the midst of God’s plan A.

Todd and Angie brought up so many, many things that I’ve been pondering, and they gave words to my ponderings.

Every single thing Angie said I felt like she was telling my story! I could identify and intensely empathize with every single thing they said.

It was very painful to go back down that path…..

But I am reconciling my heart to God’s plan A.

On another note….

I will pray for your migraines. Being pregnant and having migraines is no fun.

I’m sure that if I was a friend in your circle of influence, I would be enriched and challenged and filled, as I have been by reading your and Angie’s blogs.

Thank you.

Jessica, thanks so much for sharing this. Ever since Angie linked to your blog when you updated for her I have been reading your blog. And I am so glad you shared this today. I loved what Angie said about there’s no such thing as a Plan B for God. What a beautiful perspective. Thanks for sharing this and for helping me look at things a little differently in my own life.

thank you for sharing your life. Jer. 29:11 … hope and a future. Thank you seems too small. May all know that God is God through your story. I plan to pass this along.

Jessica – thanks for sharing this. Wow…you were right. I don’t know how anyone could watch this and not be impacted in some way. We serve an amazing God who uses everything in our lives to bring glory to Him. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to see this.

Jessica

Thank you.

I stopped by Angies blog last week whilst being lost in my own turmoil. I have not led a life where I have followed God as such, having never read the bible, never gone to church regularly etc…

Angies blog led me to yours… her writing had invaded my soul, her pictures had burnt an impression on my mind.. Todds singing ( yep I saved his myspace on my favourites!! I added to his facebook group for Selah… ) and I have spread the word both on my craft blog and by talking to my friends over here in the UK.

Watching the video… has strengthened something.. and I can not say what… but I know it will be shown to me.

Thank you… thank you for being who you are and who you are in support of the Smith family… all 6 of them.

Thank you

Gina
