The Lord is not slow in doing what he promised—the way some people understand slowness. But God is being patient with you. 2 Peter 3:9
Over the last few days I’ve watched a dream I thought dead, come back to life.
It started a little over ten years ago, with a nightmare. Yes, you’ve done your math correctly and it was 2001, but the nightmare didn’t begin with 9/11. It began two months and two days later, on November 13 and it was the day my best friend and her six-year-old daughter disappeared. Over the next few months I discovered Jennifer and Abby Blagg had been murdered...by her husband.
It was my first experience brush with domestic violence.
I had already answered what I believed was God’s call to write, and I could see that this calling would be the perfect opportunity for me to tell Jennifer’s story. I even had others close to her tell me that I should be the one to tell her story.
But no matter how I tried, I couldn’t make things work. So I took that as a sign from God and gave up that part of the dream.
Then a couple of months ago I was contacted by an independent television company, Make Believe Media. They had decided to produce an episode about what had happened to Jennifer and Abby.
This past Thursday and Friday, they’ve been here, filming that episode. I'm grateful for the opportunity to tell Jennifer’s story and giving the information others need to recognize the signs and stop the cycle of domestic violence.
