My "I lost 100+ lbs!!!" Tattoo :)

One of my favorite songs is "Sweetly Broken" by Jeremy Riddle. I have always loved that song, since the first time I heard it, but it adopted new meaning for me after I lost my dad.
In the weeks following his passing I was in a fog. I don't remember much about them. I don't know how I functioned.
The first time I remember having any clarity was at work one Friday night and our worship pastor Dave started singing Sweetly Broken. The line "You called me out of death, and You called me into life" spoke to my heart in a very deep real way. I spent the next year looking at myself and my choices and hearing God tell me "you didn't die, stop living like you did."
In 2010 I decided to be alive and change my life trajectory for the better.
2 1/2 years later I have now lost 104 lbs and have been firmly and decisively called back into life.
